You may be able to get your doctor to prescribe many of these tests. For those without a fully cooperative doctor or good insurance coverage, this annual blood test sale provides lower-cost means to get critical health information to help you understand your health risks and status. This can provide the starting point for you to plan changes in your diet and lifestyle or to evaluate the effectiveness of changes you have already made.
For instance, many people focused on improving their health take DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone, Free Base) supplements to increase blood serum DHEA and sex hormones testosterone and estrogen to youthful levels. This is particularly important for people over age 40 as their DHEA levels fall dramatically with age after peaking around age 25, leading to build-up of abdominal fat, reduced muscle mass, depressed mood, worsened blood flow, and other health problems. But without periodic testing for blood serum DHEA-S levels, you cannot be sure you are taking appropriate dosages of DHEA supplements.
To benefit from the sale prices, you’ll have to be a member of Life Extension. You’ll need to login using your membership information to see the discounted blood test prices in your shopping cart.

They also help fund new research through their memberships and purchases. Life Extension has been at the forefront of nutritional medicine, advocating the widespread use of important dietary supplements such as DHEA, omega-3 fish oils, vitamin D, and CoQ10 many years before such advice became mainstream.
