While both our Xtend-Life Total Balance Men’s Standard and Total Balance Men’s Premium formulas are a smart way to get the right age-defying nutrients for supporting a healthy lifestyle, there are some key differences between the two.
Both formulas contain the ingredient you’d find in standard supplements – although ours are natural rather than synthetic, so the benefits are ones you and your body will notice.
Synthetic ingredient are the reason why supplements made headlines in 2013, when studies appearing in the Annals of Internal Medicine said taking them was a waste of money. The studies didn’t consider that some ingredients are synthetic, and because of that they aren’t well absorbed by our bodies. Ingredients from natural sources are better absorbed due to structural differences between natural and synthetic versions, so they offer very real benefits.
Both formulas also contain minerals, essential amino acids, enzymes and a blend of antioxidants to support the body’s ability to manage free radical activity and help cells stay healthy.
They also work to support men’s sexual health and vitality by offering a specific blend of nutrients to maintain men’s health, including chrysin, a testosterone-boosting bioflavonoid, saw palmetto to support prostate health and stinging nettle, along with phytoterols and other ingredients aimed specifically at maintaining a healthy libido.
Both Total Balance Mens formulas work by providing cells the right nutrients in the right amounts at the right time. But there are some key differences, as well.
What Is In Total Balance Men's Standard?
Our Xtend-Life Total Balance Men’s Standard formula contains 76 key nutrients to support men’s health, not only overall health, but also sexual vitality, with nutrients that focus on supporting prostate health, healthy testosterone levels and enhanced libido.
It includes a wide range of nutrients that support the body’s ability to manage the five key reasons behind the aging process – free radical activity, glycation triggered by sugar intake, abnormal methylation, chronic inflammation and cellular degeneration, which causes cells to weaken, leading to lower energy levels and outward signs of aging.
To help defy the aging process, our Total Balance Men’s Standard not only includes vitamins and minerals but also other key nutrients that have been scientifically proven to help the support the body and its systemic functions.
Total Balance Men’s Standard is designed to suit adult men at every age and health level, and it is formulated to ensure that every cell of the body receives the nutrients it needs to thrive and perform its necessary daily functions.
What Is In Total Balance Men's Premium?
In addition to all of the nutrients found in the Total Balance Men’s Standard formula, our Total Balance Men’s Premium contains 98 key nutrients, and offers even more age-defying support than our Standard formula.
Our Premium formula helps support the immune system and overall health with a blend of aloe vera and olive leaf extracts, Chinese tea extract from the evergreen camellia sinensis, which helps support the body in managing oxidation, and beta glucan an immune-supporting super food that maintains the healthy function of macrophages. Macrophages help manage the healthy inflammation process so the immune system functions at its best.
Total Balance Men’s Premium also contains a more extensive blend of amino acids as well as RNA to help maintain healthy protein synthesis and guggul gum extract for an added immune support.
We have also included some of the most well known antioxidants found in nature, including ginger extract and especially turmeric because of the curcumin it contains. A 2007 study from researchers in India found that curcumin could help support the body in maintaining healthy inflammation management.
Not only does our Total Balance Men’s Premium include a wide array of nutrients that are believed to help defy aging, the formula also delves deeper into men’s sexual vitality and health by offering masson pine extract and grape seed extract (from New Zealand-grown grapes), both of which contain procyanidolic oligomers, a nutrient that helps support healthy circulation and blood vessel function (key factors in helping maintain erectile function), as well as milk thistle extract for healthy prostate function.
Blood vessels also get support through the bioflavonoid hesperidin, extracted from blood oranges. Stronger blood vessels not only help maintain sexual performance by ensuring essential blood flow, they also help support heart health for improved performance out of bedroom such as running, cycling and other sports.
A 2016 study from a team of researchers from Harvard and the University of East Anglia’s Norwich Medical School found that flavonoids including those from citrus played a major role in helping support healthy erections.
“This is the first study to look at the association between flavonoids and erectile dysfunction, which affects up to half of all middle-aged and older men,” said lead researcher Dr. Aedin Cassidy, a UEA professor. “Men who regularly consumed foods high in these flavonoids were less likely to suffer erectile dysfunction.”
Our Premium formula also contains the essential nutrient choline bitartrate, a member of the B vitamin family that is believed to be deficient in 90 percent of the American population. Choline bitartrate is thought to not only enhance athletic performance by maintaining cardiac function, but also to help support memory recall, alertness and focus.
Our Total Balance Standard is an excellent option for optimum health, but our Total Balance Premium is the gold standard, a power-packed fusion of science and nature that fills in the nutritional gaps caused by an array of different factors including poor diets and an unhealthy lifestyle, which have contributed to nutritional deficits worldwide. Both have been reformulated over the past 14 years to accommodate new research, ensuring that we’re providing products that feature the most comprehensive supplement formulas available.
