I joined LE a few weeks ago. 
I am a 59 year old man with no health problem. I make regular tests.
Aiming at the best wellness/health/longevity, I ordered the following products:

LIFE EXTENSION MIX 315 TABLETS
SUPER BOOSTER SOFTGELS w/ADVAN CED K2 COMPLEX 60 COUNT
SUPER UBIQUINOL CoQ10 W/ENH MI TOCHONDRIAL SUPPORT 50MG 100CT
MEGA EPA DHA 120 COUNT SOFTGEL S
MITOCHONDRIAL ENERGY OPTIMIZER WITH BioPQQ 120 CAPSULES
RESVERATROL WITH PTEROSTILBENE 100 MG 60 VEGETARIAN CAPSULES
LIFE FLORA 300 MG 120 CAPSULES SOURCE NATURALS
LECITHIN GRANULES 16 OZ
My questions:
1) which ones of these products can be taken every day without contraindications all life long?
2) does it make sense to use at least for some of them:
a) half doses (e.g. LE MIX 4 tablets, MEGA EPA 2-3 softgels, MITOCHONDRIAL ENERGY OPTIMIZER 2 capsules only)?
b) use 30 days cycles, then stop for 30 days, and so on, at least for some of these products?
3) what is the combined effect of vitamins E and K in SUPER BOOSTER on blood clotting? Can blood coagulation vary substantially in a normal person, provoking problems?

Finally, how should be changed the above list in order to achieve the maximum results in terms of wellness/health/longevity for a person of my age?

Thanks in advance

Welcome to Life Extension, Marco.

Contraindications depend upon one's own health conditions.  For example, someone on anticoagulant therapy may be advised to discontinue fish oils.  Otherwise there is no reason not to continue one's life extension program throughout one's life.  The hypothesis of cycling nutritional supplements is not supported by many in the field.  Discontinuing supplementation periodically is done by those who are concerned about building up exceedingly high tissue levels of a mineral or fat soluble nutrient. It would be better to consume reasonable doses of such nutrients rather than very high experimental doses.  Blood tests or hair analyses are used to get a picture of the body's status.

In answer to your one of your questions, vitamins E and K have conflicting effects and are better consumed separately.  The current thinking is that vitamin K supplementation will not cause excessive clotting, but vitamin E supplementation can have an anticoagulant effect.  For many people, this is desirable.  Blood coagulation can be evaluated if this is a concern.

Concerning your program, do you have a source of calcium?

I get 500 mgof calcium daily plus 250 mg of magnesium, plus whey and soy proteins (20-30gr/day).

As far assuper booster softgels are concerned, I wonder if in LE combination ofvitamin E and vitamin the effects of clotting and blood thinning counterbalance.This could be actually a desirable effect in some situations. Is this the case,and if yes to what extent?

Thanks for your advices.

You recommend taking vitamin E and K separately, but both are contained in the Super Booster product. Am I missing something?

hi Mike,

Am trying to find where i originally read that but can't at the moment.  For now, can refer you to:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19019024

http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/80/1/143.full

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22707266

http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/xmlui/handle/1957/36141

It could be that whoever recommended not to take them at the same time (that i can't find right now) was not referring to the same time of day but to a longer time period like months.

Many multis contain ingredients that could potentially conflict with one another.  It is thought that the increased amounts will make up for whatever absorption might be diminished through their combination.  I do a lot of juggling with separate nutrients which can be a PITB.
