A couple of months ago I picked up a box containing Anti-Aging Total Body Daily Defense Soft-Gels. I believe it was from Walgreens drugstore, and with the sale price, and register coupons, I only paid a dollar or two, instead of $11.99, for 50 soft-gels.
I always wonder if anti-aging products, whether creams or pills, really work. However this was a deal I couldn’t refuse. It states to take 2 soft-gels daily, but I noted that it has fish oil in it, and as I already take that as a supplement, I decided to take 1 in the morning.
The box is striking. At the top is states that it is ‘Doctor Developed – Longevity Formula. They are liquid soft-gels. It is for the heart, memory, vision, antioxidants. Under Anti-Aging Total Body Daily Defense is has, ‘CoQ10. Vitamin D3, Resveratrol, Green Tea, Ginkgo, Lutein, Omega 3 Oils’.
I took the bottle out of the box, and it is big, but when I took the lid off, the bottle was barely half full. The liquid soft-gels are brown. They are very easy to slide down with or without water.
What I really love about them is that you don’t get that fish taste, coming back to haunt you throughout the day. That is one reason I have to carefully choose my fish oil supplements.
I have taken 49 of the Anti-Aging Total Body Daily Defense Liquid Soft-Gels, and am unable to say whether they have helped me, or not. I haven’t noticed an improvement in my memory, I sometimes forget the odd thing, but that is natural at age 63. I eat heart healthy food, take a fish oil daily, have extra Vitamin D, to go with the calcium I need for my osteoporosis.
All in all I think that I pretty much cover many of the dietary supplements that are in this product.
A little more about Anti-Aging Total Body Daily Defense Liquid Soft-Gels from the website:

With any new supplement, check to see that it won’t interact with the medications you are already taking. Check with your doctor or pharmacist. Do not take if you are pregnant or nursing. This is an adult supplement for 18 and over.
1 soft-gel has:
Vitamin D 500 IU
Vitamin B6 12.5 mg
Folate,Folic Acid,Folacin 800 mcg 200%
Vitamin B12 50 mcg
Longevity Blend 517 mg
Anti-Aging Blend 231 mg

Ginkgo Extract (12% flavone glycosides, 3% terpene lactones)(leaf)
Bilberry Extract 12.5%
Green Tea Extract (25% EGCG)
Pomegranate Extract (20% ellagic acid)
I do realize that the dosage is 2 soft-gels a day, and I only took 1. I was hoping for more energy, but didn’t expect that my memory would improve, or my eyesight.
I am going to continue with my Multi-Vitamin with Lutein, calcium with Vitamin D, fish oil, and tums. I eat lots of fruit, vegetables, salad, white turkey and chicken, and exercise in excess. I feel that I am doing the best I can for me.
I will keep my money in the bank, and not purchase Anti-Aging Total Body Daily Defense Liquid Soft-Gels.
