Apigenin is a powerful flavonoid that helps fight the signs of aging and supports numerous aspects of health.
- Supports longevity by inhibiting CD38, a harmful enzyme that decreases NAD+ levels
- Provides antioxidant benefits
- Supports mood, heart and brain health
- Enhances sleep quality

Research-Supported Benefits:Supports Longevity. Apigenin has been shown to inhibit CD38, a harmful enzyme that decreases NAD+ levels. Inhibition of CD38 helps keep NAD+ levels stable to support healthy aging processes and reduce the risk of premature aging. (1,2)
Provides Antioxidant Benefits. The aging process and risk of age-related health issues can be accelerated by free radicals. Antioxidants are a way to help curb free-radical activity. Apigenin’s antioxidant properties have been proven to fight free-radical damage, tackle oxidative stress, reduce signs of premature aging and reduce the risk of age-related health concerns. (3)
Promotes Heart Health. Aging can cause changes to heart function and blood vessels. In fact, adults over the age of 65 are more likely to suffer from a heart event compared to younger people. The most common sign of heart health aging is a change to the arteries, which can become stiff, harden and fill with fat deposits leading to high blood pressure. Apigenin can help decrease certain heart health blood markers, reduce blood pressure and improve blood circulation. (4)
Enhances Sleep Quality. Poor sleep quality is associated with accelerated aging. Research indicates that apigenin has a positive effect on sleep. (5,6)
Supports Brain Health. With aging comes symptoms of brain decline such as impaired memory. Apigenin helps protect the brain from damage caused by oxidative stress, which can lead to a decline in cognitive function. Apigenin may increase cognitive function, improve memory formation and enhance overall mental clarity. (7)
Supports Mood. Studies have shown that apigenin can help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, resulting in improved mood. (8)
Aids in Testosterone Maintenance. Apigenin may support healthy testosterone levels and prevent the decrease in testosterone commonly seen in aging males. (9)

Full Spectrum Apigenin (500 mg per 2-capsule serving, 60 capsules) by ProHealth Longevity
I take the Full Spectrum Apigenin 500 mg. every day and I am feeling good. More energy, happy and feeling healthy.
I noticed I'm sleeping better, which is helping my whole day. I feel like I can handle my stress a little better and waking up is easier. I've only used Apigenin for 1 month, but excited to see how my body responds going forward.
noticed a slight improvement in relaxation when winding down for bed - took it at night with dinner. subtle, but noticeable.
