Two Per Day formula by Life Extension gives you more of the essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients your body needs. This is important because Recommended Dietary Allowances (or RDAs) provide only the minimal doses necessary to avoid deficiency. But in order to achieve optimal health and well-being, you need the ideal dose of high-quality vitamins and minerals every day.

More facts about Life Extension Two-Per-Days
Huge numbers of Americans take a multivitamin, but the potencies of the individual nutrients are usually so trivial that any health benefit is minimal. And that makes the ultra-low cost of the Two-Per-Day formula one of the great bargains in the dietary supplement marketplace.
Bioactive quercetin phytosome
The Two-Per-Day multivitamin contains 5 mg of quercetin that has been integrated into a phytosome. A phytosome is a phospholipid sphere that encases a botanical compound, aiding in its absorption and making it more bioavailable: this quercetin is up to 50 times more bioavailable than standard quercetin. Quercetin supports cellular health, endothelial health, healthy immune function, and more.
Crominex® 3+ biologically active chromium
Chromium helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within normal range. Crominex® 3+ is a highly stable and biologically active form of chromium optimized with Capros® amla Indian gooseberry extract to promote endothelial health and PrimaVie® shilajit for cellular energy.1
Vitamin D for healthy minds and bodies
We all know vitamin D supports bone health. But vitamin D also promotes healthy cell division, supports immune system health, and more.2, 3 Because of widespread vitamin D deficiency, nutritional scientists are calling for an increased vitamin D intake: 1,000 IU per day and higher. The Two-Per-Day multivitamin delivers 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 with every serving.
Vitamin C for immune health, arterial health, and more
Vitamin C is famously associated with immune system health, an effect that may result from its ability to scavenge free radicals and protect against oxidative stress, as well its stimulation of the production and function of white blood cells.4-6 Additionally, vitamin C is vital to collagen formation, the connective tissue found throughout healthy arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.5 The Two-Per-Day formula delivers 470 mg of vitamin C per serving.
B Vitamins help maintain youthful metabolism
Your body needs B vitamins to release energy stored in carbohydrates, fats, and proteins - energy your cells use to carry out their daily functions. But there’s more than one “vitamin B.” And because they are metabolically codependent, B vitamins work together to keep you healthy. That’s why this formula contains readily metabolized forms of vitamin B1, riboflavin (B2), vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and more.
Bioactive 5-MTHF Folate
The Two-Per-Day formula now contains 400 mcg of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), a form of folate that is up to seven times more bioavailable than folic acid.7 This is particularly important for those with certain genetic enzyme deficiencies, since 5-MTHF is already in a metabolically active form.8
Mixed vitamin E tocopherols
For optimal health benefits, mixed vitamin E tocopherols are some of the most valuable forms of vitamin E. For biomarkers of oxidative stress and inhibiting inflammatory factors, evidence shows that combining alpha- and gamma-tocopherols is better than taking either nutrient alone.9 This formula provides more than 80 mg of mixed alpha, beta, delta, and gamma tocopherols.
High-potency minerals, antioxidants, and extracts
A multivitamin is not complete without the minerals and other nutrients essential to healthy living. Two-Per-Day formula provides 10 times more biotin and twice as much zinc as Centrum® Silver® Adults 50+. This formula also delivers 100 mg of magnesium and 150 mcg of iodine, as well as trace minerals like manganese and boron.
Alpha-lipoic acid - Alpha-lipoic acid is a potent defender against oxidative stress that promotes metabolic and nerve health, and helps protect vitamin C and glutathione against damaging free radicals.10-12
Selenium - Selenium supports heart and brain health, promotes a healthy inflammatory and immune response, helps quench free radical activity.13, 14 The Two-Per Day formula has three unique forms of selenium (200 mcg total): SelenoExcell®, Se-methyl L-selenocysteine, and sodium selenite, each form acting along a different biological pathway.
Apigenin - This powerful botanical bioflavonoid is found in many fruits and vegetables.15 Apigenin helps boost the body’s natural cellular defenses.
Marigold extract - Standardized for both trans-lutein and trans-zeaxanthin, the marigold extract in this Two-Per-Day formula promotes ocular health and helps inhibit oxidative stress.
