A multi-vitamin and mineral formula that REALLY feeds your cells!
- 48 bio-available nutrients for cell health and longevity!
- Contains nutrients in the most bio-available forms for optimum absorption!
- Economical formula for the entire family!
Remember the good old days when your grandparents could go out on the farm or to a local grocery stand to get fresh, natural foods LOADED with nutrients? They didn’t need nutritional supplements - their foods were rich in nutrients!
Now fast forward to today: Commercially grown vegetables, fruits, and grains contain significantly lower nutritional content than foods grown just 30 years ago! In fact - we’re breeding the nutrition out of our food! Take a look here.
- Proteins in wheat and barley declined by nearly 50%!
- Newer crops of corn now contain less protein, oil and amino acids!
- Most wheat contains 6 fewer minerals than in your grandparents’ day!
- USDA reports calcium content in broccoli dropped over 65% - from 12.9 mg to 4.4mg!
- Farmers increase yield of raspberries with phosphorous fertilizer - but that crop can be deficient in minerals by as much as 50%!
Even if you try to eat as healthy as possible - you’re still not going to get all the nutrients your body needs to thrive. Think about this:
- Mineral deficiencies in the soil - create inferior products lacking essential nutrients!
- Environmental pollution - contaminates our food sources from seed to harvested product!
- Modern farming methods - using pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and other harsh chemicals deplete natural nutrients from foods!
- Antibiotics and other drugs injected in livestock - means humans are also ingesting these drugs with every bite!
- Transportation and storage - causes fruits and vegetables to be deprived of natural sunlight… picked too soon... and then artificially ripened while stored in trucks, ships and planes!
So is a multi-vitamin the answer? Yes - and no!
If you think a run-of-the-mill multi-vitamin will give you the nutritional boost you need to enhance your health - think again!
In our nutrition-depleted world - you need a superior multi-vitamin - to deliver the goods - and Multi-Xtra works better than standard multis - available exclusively through Xtend-Life! Here’s why:
- 48 bio-available nutrients - ready to optimize cell health! Unlike regular, mass-produced multi-vitamins - you get much more than the basic vitamin and mineral mix. With Multi-Xtra - you get the critical co-factors that are necessary for optimum absorption of nutrients! Without these co-factors - such as Piperine to improve bio-availability of nutrients - your body simply can’t absorb the nutrients properly. But don’t worry - it’s all in Multi-Xtra!
- Naturally sourced nutrients - not synthetic! Many multi-vitamins cut costs by giving you synthetic vitamins that your body can’t utilize properly. Take for example, Vitamin E. Research shows that Vitamin E - in its natural form - contains a synergistic balance of both Tocopherols and Tocotrienols. However, the common Vitamin E used in most multi-vitamins - contains only one of these compounds - Alpha-Tocopherol.
Why does this matter? Well, you need a balance of both Tocotrienols and Tocopherols to experience the maximum power of Vitamin E! In fact, Vitamin E without Tocotrienols is like a jumping out of a plane with an umbrella! Not recommended! What’s more…
…studies suggest it’s Tocotrienols that may help:
- Maintain healthy cholesterol levels!
- Support CoQ10 levels!
- Protect your heart and arteries!
- Suppress C-Reactive protein - an important inflammation marker!
- Support healthy levels of dangerous blood fats called triglycerides!
By providing you with only one of the powerful forms of Vitamin E you need - can you see how regular multi-vitamins are simply not getting the job done to protect your health? With Multi-Xtra - you get the right natural nutrients your body needs for healthy performance!
A solid foundation for your health! If you don’t always eat well - you can rest assured you’re getting the important vitamins and minerals your body needs every day! Multi-Xtra is like a little “health insurance” for a nutritionally deficient diet!
Multi-Xtra contains only the finest bio-available ingredients available. Thanks to our in-house manufacturing system - we control the quality of the nutrients found in Multi-Xtra to ensure you’re getting optimum potency and freshness in every serving! What’s more…
… Multi-Xtra is formulated for men and women - making this an economical and affordable way to enhance the health of every family member!

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 in Multi-Xtra.
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 stomach discomfort.
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 deficiency.
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.
