Health Supplements That Can Be Gifted during the Festive Season
Multi supplement: To ensure that you and your loved ones are getting the right amount of the right
ingredients, nutrients, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and vitamins every day, the Total Balance
range is definitely a good place to start. The highly sophisticated family of Total Balance nutritional
supplements from Xtend-Life provides much needed support to various systemic functions in the body.
It also offers a great value for money considering how many high quality ingredients it contains.
Omega 3 fish oil supplement: Fish oil is packed with a variety of beneficial nutrients including
omega 3 EFAs (essential fatty acids)...especially DHA, ranging in complexity and functional
properties for key parts of the body. The body cannot readily produce these omega 3 EFAs on its
own. They need to be introduced to the body through food and dietary supplements known to
contain high levels of omega 3. Some important considerations to keep in mind:
Anti-inflammatory properties: Does the fish oil have the best possible anti-inflammatory properties?
Freshness: This means low oxidation levels; once again with cold, hard evidence to back-up such
Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil ticks all the boxes and is bought by people for themselves and their
Prebiotic supplement: The gift of good digestive health, is a prebiotic supplement that offers
real benefits and feeds good bacteria, thus improving immune system function, improving mineral
absorption and balancing the digestive system and bowel pH. Kiwi-Klenz from Xtend-Life is an all natural,
balanced way to decrease the growth of bad bacteria while increasing the growth of good
bacteria. With Kiwi-Klenz, you have an easy-to-take, gentle way to promote full-body health from the
Skin Care Products That Can Be Gifted during the Festive Season
Cleansers: Not all cleansers are created equal as many contain harmful chemicals and other
ingredients you wouldn't want to expose loved ones to. The Foaming Facial Cleanser from Xtend-
Life has unique pH balancing properties and natural ingredients making it perfectly suitable for
normal, dry, oily and sensitive skin. It is ideal for dry skin because it contains Kiwifruit extract that
significantly increases the moisture retention properties of the skin. With no harsh chemicals, this
facial cleanser is ideal for both genders, all skin types at all ages and in all climates. In the other
words… THE perfect gift!
Moisturizers: Men and women have different skin physiologies and their choice in moisturizers
should reflect these differences. A choice that provides the best possible benefits without
introducing any chemicals like parabens. The Xtend-Life range of men's and women's skin creams
are scientifically formulated to contain only the most natural and effective ingredients possible.
Each cream helps reduce the visible signs of aging while nourishing the skin at the same time.
Skin care around the eyes: Your eyes can say a lot about your health as well as your age...
especially when you consider the delicate skin around your eyes. This area is prone to fine lines,
wrinkles and crow's feet, ultimately increasing the perceived age of your appearance. At Xtend-
Life, our Eye Contour Serum contains both Eyeliss ™ and Haloxyl ™ as key ingredients. In a recent
clinical study of Eyeliss, 65% of volunteers showed a marked reduction in bags under their eyes in
just 28 days! And 62% showed a significant reduction in wrinkles around their eyes. Haloxyl is also
proven in clinical trials to reduce bags and dark circles under the eyes. In a study of 22 volunteers,
more than 60% had a significant reduction in dark circles after 56 days of using Haloxyl.
So this festive season, give your loved ones a gift that keeps on giving. You can also read more

Same health benefits, new supplement names.
On 17th December 2012 two of our popular supplements, Viral-Protec and Cholest-Natural will
be changing to new names: Viral-Protec becomes Immu-Stay; and Cholest-Natural becomes
Why the need to change?
Our supplements are made from our R&D and manufacturing base in Christchurch, New
Zealand and are sold to customers right around the world. As you can imagine, every country
has different rules and regulations around the way supplements can be sold and the names that
can be used. In order to make the names more consistent and acceptable in all markets, we
needed to make this change.
Rest assured it's only the names that are changing.
The quality manufacturing process, the ingredients and most importantly the benefits for your
health remain exactly the same.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Relations team at any time.
How to Stay Healthy during the Winter Months?
You should never keep yourself confined to your room during the winter months; try to go out
regularly. However, you must make sure that you are wrapped up well before going outside during
this time of the year. Ideally, you should wear garments (pullovers or sweaters) made from wool...
wool provides more warmth than other fabrics this is because wool is a lot warmer compared to an
acrylic or cotton.
The skin around your ankles and wrists is much thinner than other parts of your body and in these
areas the blood flows much closer to the surface. Thus, we tend to lose significant amount of heat
from these parts of the body. Covering up the wrists with full-sleeve jumpers or gloves and the
ankles with socks or stockings will prevent this loss of body heat and keep you warm.
Did you know that as much as 70 percent of heat loss from our body occurs through our head?
You should always keep your head covered when going out into any cold environment.
Keeping your feet warm is something that some people can struggle with in the winter months,
resulting in them feeling even more cold and ultimately causing irritability. If you feel that your feet
are getting cold after spending some time outside, pamper yourself with a mustard footbath as
soon as you return home. It may sound strange but it works. Take a bowl of lukewarm water and
add 1 tablespoon mustard powder (you can also use crushed seeds of mustard seeds) to it. Place
your feet in this mustard solution and wait for 5 to 10 minutes. Take your feet out and dry them
carefully; once fully dry cover them up using a blanket or wear a pair of clean woollen socks.
Exercising during the Winter Months
If you want to get the most from your winter workouts, you should plan your exercising schedule
carefully. Like any other season, fitness experts still recommend exercising outside during the
winter months. However, there are certain guidelines that you must follow if you prefer exercising
outside during winter. Below we have listed those guidelines:
- Before starting your actual workout session, be sure to do a few warm-up exercises first. Cold
temperatures may cause muscle tightness, which can make our the muscles more susceptible to injuries. Thus, getting the muscles warmed up before starting any physical activities is
- You should also wear the right kind of clothing while exercising outside during the winter
months. Covering up your body with several layers of light clothing is an effective way of
staying warm and also allows you to remove one or two layers if you feel too warm while
working out. The clothing layer that stays in contact with our skin must have the ability to
move moisture away. The topmost layer, on the other hand, should be both water and wind
- Drink enough water before and after the exercising session. Staying hydrated while working
out is just as important during winter as it is during summer.
Dietary Guidelines You Should Follow during the Winter Months
During winter, increasing your protein intake can help promote muscle growth post-exercise and
more muscle equates to a warmer body.
Consume as much green and leafy vegetables as possible; they contain all the essential minerals
and vitamins required for a healthier body. Examples include spinach, lettuce, kale etc.
Consume seasonal fruits (fruits grown naturally during winter) such as Kiwifruit, oranges,
Skin Care during the Winter Months
Many people enjoy taking hot showers or baths during
the cold months. This helps keep our body warm and also
makes our skin soft and supple. However, you should make
sure that the water is not too hot. If the water you use for
bathing, showering or washing your face is extremely hot, it
might end up breaking your capillaries and can even break
down your skin's lipid barriers. This will cause excessive
moisture loss and will make your skin flaky and dry.
To keep your skin healthy and glowing in winter, you must
clean it using a gentle cleanser. Avoid using strong alcohol
based skin cleansers; this is because those strong cleansers
can further weaken your skin's balance and worsen its
During the winter months, you will need to moisturize your
skin more frequently, using moisturizers like those found in our Xtend-Life skincare range is great
way to give your skin the nourishment and care it deserves.
As mentioned earlier, winter is the time when many people get affected by colds and flu. To
prevent the sniffles, you need to boost your immunity effectively and ideally, as naturally as
possible. An effective natural way of strengthening your immune system is by taking our Total
Balance, Omega 3 / DHA fish oil products and Immu-Stay throughout the winter months. A
balanced diet and regular exercise can also help boost your immunity.
INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH
The ingredient of the month for
this issue of the newsletter is
something we all use every day and
often take for granted…aqua (also
known simply as water).
60% of the human body consists of water. In addition to that, all parts of a human body including
the skin require water for performing their respective functions optimally. The main functions
of water in the human body are: transporting nutrients (minerals, vitamins etc) to the cells and
flushing out toxins from the system.
Both these functions when not performed properly end up harming our skin. Therefore, in order
to have healthy skin, we must drink adequate quantities of water every day. Other than drinking
water for improving skin health, skin products containing water also help support skin health and
Water is mainly used as a solvent in cosmetic products because it helps dissolve many of the
ingredients added to the product in order to provide the skin benefits...these include conditioning
agents and cleansing agents.
When combined with essential natural oils, the water can form an emulsion which is often used to
form skin lotions and creams. Depending on the ratio of essential oils and water, the emulsions can
either be referred to as oil-in-water emulsions or water-in-oil.
Water used in various skincare products is also used as a natural spreading component, as it will
help to distribute the other ingredients evenly over the skin. It's true that when used alone, water
is not capable of cleaning our skin thoroughly. This is why it's better to use our Foaming Facial
Cleanser to successfully eliminate daily grime and grease build-ups on the skin. The product
contains both water and several key ingredients that not only help clean the skin and leave it
feeling vibrant and refresh, it is also suitable for all types of skin.
The water used in both our Foaming Facial Cleanser and skin creams helps the various ingredients
in these products achieve their full potential and functionality. For example, Cocamide DEA in our
cleanser is derived from the fatty acids of coconut oil and is a foaming agent and foam stabilizer.
It is both water and oil soluble which enables both water and oil to be evenly dispersed in the
solution to provide good cleansing properties.
However, water is just one of the many ingredients we use in our skincare products. You can read
more about them by clicking on the ingredients link on any skincare product page on our website.
Two Promotions to Say Thank You
We are making excellent progress in getting our new building completed...in fact, we are right on track for an official opening to be held in April 2013. It will be a huge milestone in Xtend-Life's history. To thank you - our loyal customers from all over the world - for your incredible support, we are starting two promotions.
The first promotion will offer you a chance to win the grand prize of free return flights for two to Christchurch, New Zealand from any part of the world to participate in the Global Headquarters opening ceremony plus a free accommodation in Christchurch for a week (rules).
While every customer has a chance to win, our loyal customers will have a greater chance to win. Many of you have supported us for years and will now automatically get dozens of entries into the prize draw. This is how it works:
Any customer who places at least one order while the promotion is running will automatically get one chance to win the prize for each order ever placed...even years before the promotion started. For Loyalty Program orders this will be doubled: two chances to win the prize for each Loyalty Program order ever placed.
The second promotion is a series of monthly prize draws with two winners each month. Every time you place an order while the promotion is running you will get a chance to win the price of this order back. Again, this will be doubled for Loyalty Program orders - each of those will give you two automatic entries into the prize draw ( rules).
Our second promotion increases the chances of winning a prize for everyone, and as with our first promotion, our most loyal customers will have higher chances of winning.
The whole Xtend-Life team and I look forward to congratulating all prize winners and welcoming both grand prize winners to our new Global Headquarters!
In good health,
John Cooper - General Manager
MEET & GREET TEAM
With senior management and consultancy experience in a range of
industries including travel, tourism and recreation, John took up the
role of General Manager at Xtend-Life over 18 months ago and is now
an integral part of the team and an influential figure in the company.
His leadership and people skills contribute towards positive outcomes
for staff engagement and motivation, as well as achieving the many
objectives that the company has set for itself. When not in the office,
John enjoys recreational time on the ski slopes or tennis court. When
the weather is not ideal, he can be found indoors oil painting.
What would you say are your main strengths?
I pay a lot of attention to detail; that is critical to the success in
our business. I also like finding ways to work more effectively and promoting better ways
of achieving goals. While quite a logical thinker, I can be pragmatic when it's appropriate,
sometimes the best way from A to B is not the shortest. I am open minded and take on board
the different perspectives in decision making which is important in a business as diverse as
Xtend-Life. I believe this assists the many teams within the company, with their diverse skills and
experience to produce the best outcomes.
What are your main hobbies/interests?
I love skiing and tennis and when I make the time, oil painting. I also have a strong interest in
international events and design trends.
What is your favourite Xtend-Life product?
I can't separate Omega 3 /QH Ultra and Total Balance Men's Premium. Both are a required part
of my day. Oh yes… and Kash (our Skin Care Product Manager) tells me I need to use more of
our skin care range!
Describe your average day in three words:
Full, diverse, stimulating
What is the best part about your job?
Seeing people and teams develop and achieving even better results!
CUSTOMER QUESTION OF THE MONTH
I am wondering if your Women's Whitening Cream can be used instead of a daily moisturiser.
Thank you for contacting us.
You certainly can use our Whitening Cream as a daily moisturizer. The Natural Whitening Day Cream is designed for those who not only wish the same full anti-aging benefits that our Age Defense Active Day Cream offers, but also want to help lighten skin colour, gradually, naturally and without bleaching.
It provides the complete daytime protection for the skin against aging, helps protect against and reduce wrinkles and fine lines, boosts skin firmness, better complexion, skin strengthening, and overall youthfulness. I hope this helps, please let me know if I can assist with anything further.
CUSTOMER COMMENT OF THE MONTH
This spring I just thought I do research and find out which vitamins
are the best. Well the web site rated Total balance #1. So I started to
give it a try. I work in the lawn sprinkler business, and we have very
long days often work 7 days a week. (We only work 6 months) I am
53 years old and I have more energy and stamina than I had 10 years
ago. I take Total Premium, Kiwi-Klenz and Omega3 QH Ultra. I also
lost 15lbs over the summer.
My younger daughter and my wife all take Xtend-Life
products, and they all have more energy. Your products are worth
every penny, because they actually produce a noticeable difference.
I see your products as a great investment in my health and wellbeing.
