This is of the most powerful antioxidant supplements available, with an ORAC score of 150,000. Enriched with the pure essential oils thyme, orange, and now frankincense, Longevity protects DHA levels, a nutrient that supports brain function and cardiovascular health, promotes healthy cell regeneration, and supports liver and immune function. Longevity also contains clove oil, nature’s strongest antioxidant, for ultra antioxidant support. Total Fat: 0 g per serving
ESSENTIAL OILS IN THIS FORMULA:
Thyme Leaf (Thymus vulgaris)—preserves fats from degradation in the brain, heart, liver and kidneys, while raising total antioxidant levels, including glutathione and superoxide dismutase.
Orange Peel (Citrus sinesis)—contains 90% limonene documented in over 50 studies for its antimutagenic (DNA-protecting), anti-tumoral (combats tumor growth), anti-cancerous attributes.
Clove Bud (syzygium aromaticum)—reduces the stickiness of blood cells and decreases joint pain and swelling. Dr. Nagashima of the Nihon University in Japan found eugenol (the active ingredient in clove oil) inhibits the destruction of the fatty outer layer of human red blood cells.
Frankincense Gum (boswellia carterii)—supports normal cell regeneration and healthy immune function.

Studies show that as we age, particular enzymes decrease and free radicals become more abundant. Toxic, polluted environments can also take their toll on the body by increasing free radical production. Smoke, radiation, car fumes, poor diets, polluted water, and even sunlight speed the aging process. Free radicals damage body cells and cause cellular malfunctions and mutations. Programming the body to produce higher quantities of antioxidants helps combat free radical damage and slows the negative effects associated with growing older. In our fast-paced society, it is comforting to know that one convenient capsule a day will defend the body against the typical ravages of aging.*

What Makes This Product Unique?
Longevity is part of Young Living’s essential oil supplement line. Many people who use essential oils are also acquainted with herbs, thus, it is easy to assume that essential oils work in the same manner as herbal formulas. This, however, is not the case. Essential oils are highly concentrated forms of fresh or dried herbs and it often takes many pounds of herbs to make a mere ounce of essential oil. Because of their concentrated potency, including their antioxidant activity, it takes only a very small amount of essential oil to achieve the desired antioxidant effects.
Who Should Use This Product?
Longevity should be taken by those concerned with the negative effects of aging to prolong looking better and feeling younger. Longevity may also be taken to increase immune function and uplift the nervous system as thyme and frankincense possess constituents that provide these benefits.*
Did You Know?
+ Studies show that thyme essential oil maintains DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) levels in the brain, liver, heart, and kidneys of aging subjects. Low DHA levels are associated with a loss of focus and memory, unclear thinking, and mood alterations. Test subjects receiving a daily dose of thyme oil had higher levels of DHA than those who did not take the supplement.*
+ Longevity utilizes coconut oil to ensure essential oils are more evenly dispersed in the body. Coconut oil is also highly resistant to rancidity which preserves the integrity of the oils and prolongs shelf life.
