Elite Natural Supplements from Xtend-Life
They have achieved a level of efficacy not previously seen in this industry!
Xtend-Life Natural Products (Intl) Ltd. is also UNIQUE as a company.
It gives personal service like no other...no matter where you live in the world!
Xtend-Life Natural Products over the last eight years have been pioneers in developing a new class of supplements...utilizing the latest scientific research and exacting manufacturing technology to provide health benefits never before achieved with natural products.
Xtend-Life supplements will provide targeted nourishment to your cells and organs to help correct nutrient deficiencies and imbalances in your body. Nutrient deficiencies and imbalances are believed by many scientists to be the cause of all ailments and premature aging due to the degradation of your DNA!
But...there is much more to it than that as you will appreciate as you study this website.
Even though up to date knowledge is used in the development of our supplements, there are no new 'wonder' ingredients included unless their safety and effectiveness has been comprehensively tested and proven in long term studies. Customer safety is paramount and as such our scientists will never put our customers at risk on an unproven theory.
You may have tried supplements in the past but with disappointing results. This could be due to a number of factors. Many components are needed to bring an effective supplement to the consumer. Just one missing component can have a major impact on the result.
The Xtend-Life range of supplements is quite unique in that no component is overlooked.
What makes them Unique?
In a nutshell, apart from the R & D that goes into the development of Xtend-Life supplements, it is the way in which they are manufactured and the special enhancements within them. This is what makes the difference. These differences are explained in the following sections on Delivery Systems, Product Synergy and Ingredient Blending.
To better understand the rationale behind these products let us give you a quick review of why they are needed in the first place by explaining why diseases develop and what you need in order to keep vibrantly healthy.
Nutrient imbalances and/or deficiencies in the body are known to be the prime cause of ailments and disease. Your organs require a wide range of nutrients to enable them to produce the many chemicals and hormones needed by your cells.
If your body is deficient in any of these nutrients your organs will slowly starve, making it impossible for them to function in the most effective way. This in turn results in inadequate amounts of chemicals and hormones produced. Result? Accelerated aging and disease! The illustration on the right shows what gradual nitrogen deficiency does to a simple leaf! Similar deterioration of your organs occurs when starved of essential nutrients!
Attaining and maintaining vibrant health is largely dependent on your body's ability to sustain adequate levels of essential nutrients. The challenge is getting these nutrients to the cells and this is where most supplements fail.
Nutrient imbalances and/or deficiencies are due to three key factors:
- Poor diet.
- Poor extraction of nutrients from food.
- The declining quality of the available food supply.
A poor diet results from eating excessive amounts of processed foods (including sugars and fats), animal derived foods and dairy foods, as well as from consuming insufficient amounts of fruits, vegetables and pure water.
Poor extraction of nutrients is common amongst many people. This is often due to a lack of specific enzymes in the upper intestine that enable the digestive system to break down the nutrients from the food into molecules small enough to pass through the membrane of the small intestine.
Declining quality of food due to large scale farming and storage methods degrades the nutrient component of foods.
The way a supplement is delivered to your body is critical to its effectiveness, regardless of whether it is in tablet, capsule, soft-gel, powder or liquid form. If the correct nutrients are not released in the correct place, then they cannot do their job and the supplement is worthless.
The nutrients provided by the supplement must be able to be transported into the bloodstream without being damaged or compromised in any way. Achieving this is very complex and a significant part of Xtend-Life's research and development time goes into ensuring that our supplements are transported into the blood stream in a form that will give your body the maximum benefit.
Xtend-Life uses four different delivery systems, which take into account the specific purpose of the products and the active ingredients they contain.These are:
- Enteric coated tablets
- Non-enteric coated tablets
- Soft gel capsules
- Hard gel capsules
Enteric Coated tablets
Xtend-Life uses enteric coating on our flagship product, the Total Balance range for general health. Total Balance is rightly considered the ‘Rolls Royce’ of supplements. This should be your cornerstone supplement if you are serious about maintaining or improving your health.
There are three versions of Total Balance:
Other Xtend-Life supplements with enteric coating include:
Enteric coating is rarely used in the supplement industry because it is a sophisticated and expensive system. It is the ultimate technology for delivering specific sensitive ingredients into the blood stream.
Enteric coating technology allows tablets to pass through the stomach intact, without being damaged by stomach acids. This is crucial because exposure to stomach acids can damage or inactivate some of the most important nutrients, such as L-Glutathione, Resveratrol and SAMe.
The all important enzymes are rendered useless by stomach acid as well.
When enteric coated products reach the upper intestine, the coating on the tablet disintegrates and releases the active ingredients. The enteric coating, which is inert, then continues on through the digestive system and is passed from the body.
Once the coating has disintegrated, specific active ingredients in the tablet 'react' with enzymes present in the supplement, breaking down to smaller size those nutrients with larger molecules to enable them easy passage through the intestinal membrane into the blood stream.
Non-enteric coated tablets:
Xtend-Life uses normal pharmaceutical glazing for the following products:
These products are designed to have their contents released into the stomach, as stomach acid does not damage the active ingredients they contain. Bromelain combined with Piperine is added to the tablets to ensure that the molecular size of the active ingredients can be effectively 'transferred' through the upper intestinal membranes into the blood stream.
Although the tablets are not enteric coated, they are sealed to prevent any degradation that might otherwise occur through oxidation (the effect of coming into contact with oxygen) prior to consumption.
Soft gel capsules:
The following Xtend-Life products use the soft gel capsule system:
These products are all based on natural oils and, as such, soft gel capsules are the only workable delivery system option. In the case of Xtend-Life Lipi-Rite, a special combination of oils is used, which 'envelopes' the active powdered ingredients and assists in their migration through to the bloodstream.
Hard gel capsules:
The following Xtend-Life products use the hard gel capsule system:
All these products are designed to have the ingredients released into the stomach, making hard gel capsules the ideal delivery system choice.
Guaranteed right time, right place delivery.
In addition to using specially designed delivery systems, Xtend-Life supplements are guaranteed to disintegrate in the body at the appropriate time and place.
Both the British and the US Pharmacopeia lay down clear protocols for testing each delivery system. The protocols vary depending on whether the products are enteric coated tablets, normal tablets, soft-gels or hard capsules. All Xtend-Life Supplements are tested using these protocols and meet all their requirements.
The choice of the delivery system is only one part of developing an effective supplement. The synergy of the ingredients is another component that puts Xtend-Life supplements in a class of their own.
When many ingredients are combined in a formula they either, work synergistically together and enhance each other, or, they remain neutral or, in come cases cancel each other out.
Xtend-Life's research and development is focused on ensuring that:
- All ingredients are examined at molecular level for positive interactions to enhance their effectiveness and to ensure no potentially harmful substances are produced.
- Individual ingredients are only used in amounts that have no potential to do harm. High doses of Vitamin C in ascorbic acid form, for example, can do more harm than good, due to the generation of additional free radicals.
- All formulas only contain raw ingredients that are clinically PROVEN to be safe and effective.
Our formulas are signed off by our chief researcher Prof. Dr. A Munem Daoud. PhD who is also a qualified biochemist as well as a Naturopath and Herbalist. The dosages and number of individual nutrients used in each formula ensure that each product provides the body with the greatest choice of 'raw' ingredients to help achieve the objective of each supplement and minimise any potential waste.
All Xtend-Life supplements can be taken in combination with each other. This means the needs of each individual customer can be met without compromising the effectiveness of any of the products being used, or risking any potential excessive intake of any nutrient.
It's all very well using the best ingredients and having the best synergistic formulas, but these benefits will be negated unless the best blending protocols are also followed.
Xtend-Life has very exacting blending protocols which we believe are unique to us. This is because they are much more time consuming and thus more expensive to follow.
However, they are critical in complex formulas such as most of our supplement products. If they are not followed, it becomes virtually impossible to ensure that all the active ingredients are distributed evenly throughout all the tablets. This could be one of the reasons why many products when tested do not contain what the label claims. It is sometimes due to rushed blending protocols.
The table below illustrates the difference between blending protocols when making a typical Xtend-Life supplement such as Total Balance compared with a standard general, or professional supplement.
