My wife has been using Personal Radical Shield since June 1996. She’s now age 60. Her physicals have actually been getting better over the last 18 years. She requires zero prescription drugs and people tell her she looks 20 to 30 years younger. Her BMI is 18.6, visceral fat is 3, body fat % is 26 and bone density is 1 SD. And amazing of all, blood pressure is around 90 over 60! All her younger and older siblings are on blood pressure meds. My wife’s only exercise is an hour of yoga each day.

I’ve been taking the Personal Radical Shield for over ten years now, maybe 15! I really like this product. I like that it’s not a tablet like those One-A-Day’s. It’s a capsule so it gets dissolved much quicker.

I recommend the Personal Radical Shield to everyone. I’ve taken a lot of different things, different vitamins. I run marathons, I work out every morning, and run 6 days a week. I work 80 hours a week and when I run out of this product I notice a difference in my energy levels right away.

I'm a believer in your Personal Radical Shield. I've been taking it for years now.
I'm 82 years of age and it has helped me so much. It gets me through my day. Thanks for this product.

I started using Personal Radical Shield more than six years ago at the personal recommendation of Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw. I discovered, one time when I ran out, that there really is a difference between this particular multi-vitamin and others on the market. I felt remarkably worse on a daily basis using a substitute product and remarkably better once my new shipment from Life Enhancement arrived. I will never allow myself to run out of PRS again!

If I could choose just one supplement, it would be the Personal Radical Shield. I have taken it for many years. Though I can't pinpoint a specific health benefit, my overall health is very good to excellent [knocking on wood].

One of my fond childhood memories is that whenever we had guests over for dinner, my father would always offer his favorite toast, the famous Spanish one: Salud, amor, y pesetas—y el tiempo para gozarlas. (May you have) Health, love, and wealth—and the time in which to enjoy them.
It is appropriate that the most important of this triumvirate comes first—health.
When we are young, it is easy to take natural good health and vitality for granted—and it becomes progressively less easy as we get old. Which it is why it is wise to start preserving one’s health when young (just as it is wise then to start saving money).
I’m 65 now and as you know, 12 days ago (12/05) underwent serious abdominal surgery. My doctors are amazed at how rapidly I am recuperating. One reason for this is that I have taken nutritional supplements in “life extension” amounts for over 30 years. Another is that I am taking specific nutritional formulas to promote [natural revitalization functions].*
Almost exclusively, they are formulas designed by famed life extension scientists Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw—dear friends for 40 years—and produced by our mutual friend Will Block’s company Life Enhancement.
I think that such nutrition is the best Christmas present you could give to yourself.
Of course, you could trot down to your local GNC, which I don’t doubt is a fine company. But what Life Enhancement offers is absolutely cutting-edge life-extension nutrition, quality-control I absolutely trust—and their magazine/website explains it all clearly with scientific references.
Durk & Sandy’s latest formula, FoldRight, is an example. Almost everything our body does involves proteins. Almost all of the 25,000 genes in our DNA code for the production of a protein. All enzymes are proteins, etc. Proteins are enormously complicated, and critical to their proper functioning is that they fold into a correct three-dimensional structure.
One major cause of aging is that the proteins in our body become progressively mis-folded. It’s like keys no longer fitting into locks. That’s why one (not the only) holy grail of life extension science is to figure out how to start re-folding our body’s mis-folded proteins back to their correct structures. FoldRight is that Holy Grail.
That’s brand new. I’ve been taking Durk & Sandy’s arginine-based formula, InnerPower, for a quarter-century. I never go without it anywhere in the world, as it promotes [natural revitalization functions]* (as well as many other things—it’s sort of a nutritional philosopher’s stone).
Then there’s their original life extension vitamin/supplement formula, Personal Radical Shield. Back in the 70s, before their formulas were commercially available, they would put together their basic life extension mix in their lab (I often got to be their lab assistant!). We didn’t have encapsulation equipment, so we’d carry the stuff around in plastic bags, taking a teaspoon of vitamin powder straight with each meal. You have no idea how awful it tasted.
This went on for years. Can you imagine lugging around large bags of vitamin powders in say, Afghanistan fighting with the Mujahaddin against the Soviets? Good grief. Finally Will came along to make a business out of it and license/manufacture Durk & Sandy’s formulas.
I don’t think you could make a better investment in yourself, give yourself a better Christmas present, than to explore the Life Enhancement site (be sure and click on the “Articles & Research About This Product” link for each formula), order the formulas you feel would be right for you, and start actually slowing down the aging process in your body.
[I should now make this disclaimer: I have no financial interest in Life Enhancement whatever.]
We all need to be at our healthiest
