From the desk of Warren Matthews
It is seven years since I have updated my message on this website. I am writing these words in August 2013 after having just celebrated my 66th birthday.
It has been an interesting period since I wrote my last message here. During that period Xtend-Life has grown significantly and we have had to deal with many challenges including a devastating earthquake here in New Zealand and a changing international regulatory environment.
Thanks to the dedication of our staff all of these challenges have been met head on and overcome. We are now in a new purpose built facility with all departments under one roof. We have met all the regulatory changes and are now fully US FDA GMP compliant and our testing regime is one of the most rigorous in the industry... anywhere in the world.
Below is a short video of our opening ceremony held in April 2013.
Although I am 66 years old now no one ever asks me if I have considered retirement. If they did I could say it has never entered my head. Why should I? My biological age is much younger than my chronological age, I am in better condition than most men 15 - 25 years my junior, I have no aches and pains, I have plenty of energy, never get sick, don't take any medication because I have no physical/medical issues. My mind is clearer and sharper than any time in my life. In fact, I have never felt so good.
Last year I sailed my Polynesian catamaran from New Zealand to Thailand and have other adventures planned. Even though we now have an excellent management team at Xtend-Life I will continue to remain active in new product development, research and strategic direction. I have also started on a book which is expected to be released later in 2013.
The reason why I mention all this is to try to convey to readers and customers that there is no need to suffer many of the discomforts that so many people do, as they age. In fact, in my opinion life begins at 60 not at 40 as the once popular song went. The problem is that with so much misinformation about health in the media and on the internet, many people do not realise what they need to do to ensure they don't age as people expect.
My personal quest is to try and inform people how to remain free of sickness and degenerative diseases. This is the purpose of the new book. It will not just be about supplementation, in fact, that is only a small portion of it. Supplementation is critical and is responsible for my current state of good health...but, I am researching additional protocols that go beyond supplements and these will be discussed in the book.
Supplementation has however been the foundation stone that I and my family have relied on for the last 14 years to sustain our good health. We have been fortunate to have access to the best supplementation...because we make them ourselves. We don't leave anything to chance which is why we opted to establish our own manufacturing facility rather than use contract manufacturers like most other brands.
Our supplements have also been and continue to be, the health foundation for many of our long time loyal customers over the last 13 - 14 years.
We at Xtend-Life have developed our products to meet people's needs, not to minimize production costs. We only produce a product if we are satisfied that there is nothing better in the world and that we offer customers value for money, which can't be beaten.
We do not compromise on anything, whether it is raw ingredients or manufacturing techniques. We run a highly efficient and lean operation.
On a final note...our customers truly do come first. As a family owned company we sincerely care about our customers and should you become a customer, I can personally guarantee that you will not get finer service from anywhere else in the world. If you are not satisfied, please contact me and I will respond to you personally. I can be reached by telephone or via our form on our contact page.
I sincerely hope you join us.
In good health,
