What are the main benefits of Xtend-Life Multi-Xtra?
Multi-Xtra was developed to cater for those customers who are for
whatever reason not using Total Balance. Multi-Xtra is one of the very
few ‘complete’ multi’s on the market today. Multi-Xtra provides a broad
spectrum of the best form of essential nutrients at a low cost.
How does Xtend-Life Multi-Xtra compare with other 'Multi' products on the market?
The biggest differences are in the form of vitamins used. For
example, we use only the best natural forms of ingredients. These are
the most expensive forms but they provide the best efficacy. They are
'grown' rather than being a derivative of petrochemicals. This is
often not the case with cheap mass produced multi's. For instance the
Vitamin B2 is a special form of Riboflavin-5-Phosphate which is around
10 times as expensive as the ordinary B2.
If I don't feel any immediate effects, am I still getting the benefits from this product?
Definitely yes! Your cells and organs are getting the benefit even if you can't feel these benefits in the short-term.
The nutrients are doing their jobs in all parts of the body. This is
occurring at a cellular level so you may be totally unaware of it.
How do I take Multi-Xtra?
For the best results we suggest that you follow our
recommended protocol of 2 tablets per day, which equates to 1 bottle
per month. Ideally this would be combined with our Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil
at 2 soft gels per day. This makes a good basic daily nutrient program
for general health improvement and protection.
Multi-Xtra can also be used as additional support in combination
with any other Xtend-Life product other than the Total Balance range,
which already contains all the nutrients that are included
Can you tell me more about the ingredients in Multi-Xtra?
Full info on our ingredients can be found on the Ingredients page,
together with clinical studies and further information. All ingredients
have their individual benefits, but it is only possible to achieve
optimum results and long-term longevity when formulated together in
specific quantities and ratios. When combined synergistically, studies
have shown that the effectiveness of nutrients can be increased by as
much as fifteen times!
Is it possible that I could feel any bad effects after I start taking Multi-Xtra?
This is highly unlikely unless you are sensitive to any of the
ingredients. If taken with food this reduces the possibility of any
Why is the Vitamin E Dosage in the Multi-Xtra only 100 IU (82.6 mg) whereas some multi’s use a higher dose?
Most long-term human supplementation studies show benefits at a daily Vitamin E intake at 100IU.
Because Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin it is important not to
ingest high levels on a regular basis. The amounts of Vitamin E that
we use are still within the clinically proven beneficial range.
It should be noted that we only use the natural form of Vitamin E,
which has greater benefits than synthetic Vitamin E. Additionally,
we also use a broad spectrum Tocotrienol which is another form of
Vitamin E. This significantly improves the potency of basic Vitamin E.
It is rare to find Tocotrienols in a multi because of the cost.
I am a highly allergic person, especially to shrimp and other shellfish... can I take Multi-Xtra?
There are no shellfish derived ingredients in Multi-Xtra. However if you are highly sensitive to sulfur-containing substances (sulfonamides or sulfites) you may wish to consult with your physician before taking Multi-Xtra as MSM (methylsulfonyl methane) is one of the ingredients.
Will Multi-Xtra help with allergies such as hay fever, pollen etc?
It is highly likely that you will notice a real benefit. Many
of these allergies are thought to be due to specific nutrient
deficiencies which Multi-Xtra helps correct.
Will Multi-Xtra interfere with prescription medications?
As with all supplements caution must be applied if you are on
medications of any sort, but it is unlikely that this product will
cause any problem.
If you are using prescription drugs please let your health professional
know that you are using this product. It is very rare that they will
object, but play it safe and let them know.
I am taking other nutritional supplements and natural medications. Is this OK?
Generally yes. If you are taking additional supplements it may be a
good idea to consider ‘upgrading’ to one of the Total Balance range.
Using Total Balance usually eliminates the need for the taking any
additional supplements, other than when a specific problem is to be
addressed, and even that is usually unnecessary and doesn't make
economic sense unless you have been diagnosed with a specific
There are risks associated with taking high doses of certain
vitamins and minerals. E.g., high doses of vitamin C can actually
contribute to the production of free radicals.
The levels of vitamins and minerals contained in Multi-Xtra are
normally sufficient for most people, even if you are on a less than
optimal diet. There would be no benefit in taking additional vitamins
and minerals, although other specialized nutrients found in Total
Balance would be beneficial.
What else can I do to help myself?
To reach optimum health it is always important to combine a
generally healthy lifestyle with any supplement regime. Even moderate
exercise, is proven to be beneficial to our immune system, heart,
muscles, circulation, joints and reproductive system. A healthy and
balanced diet of complete vitamins, minerals, essential enzymes, amino
acids and trace elements is also essential and will help to keep your
heart healthy and optimize your overall health.
Can I get ongoing advice and help from Xtend-Life?
Yes. Xtend-Life experts are here to answer any questions you have
regarding our products and their uses for your condition. Please
contact us anytime for further help.
Should I take a break from Multi-Xtra periodically?
It may be worth taking a break for 2 weeks each year to ensure that your body does not become somewhat over-reliant on this supplement. However, taking a break does leave you without the nutrients that you won't be getting from diet alone. We consider this to be a matter of personal preference. If you do decide to take a break, we recommend that it is limited to 2 weeks. Otherwise the benefit of the product will be reduced.
