As a non-profit organization, Life Extension Foundation increase funding for its research and activities through sales of products. The products on the shelf of the foundation are vitamins and nutritional supplements to slow down aging. Life Extension Foundation’s research is focused on life extension, anti aging, and optimal health.
Life Extension Foundation was opposed by Federal Drug Administration in 1987 because the foundation is not recognized with its concept of aging as disease. And, according to Federal Drug Administration, everything which is not recognized is forbidden. Since then, there was a long battle between Federal Drug Administration with Life Extension Foundation, including those consumers that benefit from the products. For information, beside vitamin and nutrition, Life Extension Foundation also published mail-order magazine namely Life Extension as one of their products, where they published all the researches regarding the slowing aging and of course, life extension.
Life Extension Foundation had undergone a hard time in the first decade of its establishment with Federal Drug Administration that made the founders, Saul Kent and William Faloon, had to be jailed for several years, and still, had to be brought to trial. Life Extension Foundation’s products were placed to a permanent embargo. In their effort to fight the state’s institution, Life Extension Foundation’s founders had to lose so much money, and their products considered unapproved. However, the story of the foundation remained happy ending that through a hard long life battle, Federal Drug Administration finally dropped the charge and tried to compromise with the foundation. The agency gave up with its political opponent in 1995. But as the pay off, the foundation’s business became more limited and the content of the magazine was censored.
Today, Life Extension Foundation has been growing up and developed into a greater non-profit organization. It still has the same idealism for the long term goal, extending lifespan of human with scientific research method, eradicating diseases and control aging.
