A New Frontier in Cardiovascular Support
What is CX8?
CX8 uses the strongest and most reliable scientific data to address the five main causes of cardiovascular problems which not only affect the heart and the arteries, but also indirectly the brain. It's designed to:
- Reduce calcification in the soft tissues. Calcification causes hardening of the arteries, making a heart attack more likely.
- Improve circulation by smoothing out the inside of the arteries so it is harder for plaque to attach and easier for blood to flow.
- Reduce inflammation in the blood which can restrict blood flow.
- Increase adult stem cells to help replenish damaged cells in the cardiovascular system.
- Rebalance cholesterol levels by increasing the "good" HDL cholesterol and reducing the "bad" LDL cholesterol and Triglycerides.
How does it work?
CX8 aims to improve heart health through the synergistic action of 8 ingredients, some of which are brand new to the market and hard to obtain in these forms. But it's not just the ingredients, it's the specific amounts and the way they work together that creates the X factor. In fact, that's what led to the name...
The eight ingredients are:
We believe the ingredients in CX8 make it one of the most effective heart-health products available today.
But don't just take our word for it. We had an independent bio-engineer try to find flaws in the clinical data supporting how well these ingredients worked, including speaking directly with some of the scientists who developed them.
See the ingredients tab to dig into the research and learn exactly what goes into the product so you can better understand why CX8 is such a potent supplement.
The Cardiovascular Blind Spot - Warren Matthews’ Story
"About 50% of people who have fatal heart attacks are at low risk according to their Doctors based on current testing protocols."
The objective of CX8 was to address a blind spot that Warren and most Doctors have.
Warren's health had always been perfect. His markers for cardiovascular health were excellent and the standard medical tests showed he was in great shape.
But Warren, like most Doctors, had a serious blind spot - he was unaware of a build-up of calcification in his cardiovascular system, in particular, his aortic valve
The calcification was so severe he was forced to have urgent open-heart surgery.
Warren's video above gives a first-hand account of that story he believes if he had known a few years previously what he knows now, he may have been able to avoid that surgery.
The Path to CX8
Realizing that what happened to him could happen to anyone, Warren turned his search for answers into a full-time personal project. He tapped into his extensive global resources built up over the last 20 years in the supplement manufacturing industry, traveling over 300,000 kms specifically to meet with bio-engineers, scientists, physicians, cardiologists, and researchers seeking answers to these issues based on strong clinical data, not anecdotal evidence.
After a year and a half, he had the data in which to connect all the 'dots' and CX8 was born... an all-natural powerful supplement with strong clinical data supporting the efficacy of all the ingredients used.
There was no compromise with the dose rates and no compromise in the selection of the ingredients. Only the best was selected irrespective of the premium price some of them carried.
Do I need CX8?
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the world, so you would assume there are the systems in place to detect and treat it. And it's true that there is an established process. If you are over the age of 45 you have likely had a check-up and hopefully been given the all clear by your Doctor. So on the surface, everything might look fine.
But about 50% of people who have fatal heart attacks are at low risk according to current testing protocols. Their cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and other markers might be perfect, they might exercise regularly, have a healthy weight and diet and never have smoked, but remember Warren's story, and the blind spot that almost proved fatal for him.
The standard medical checks aimed at assessing your risk of future heart problems do NOT include a CAC (Coronary Arterial Calcification) scan. CAC testing can help reveal whether you have a build-up of calcium in your blood vessels - an early sign coronary artery disease, that often happens with no warning signs.
So if you are 45 years of age or older and have not had a CAC scan then you would be wise to add CX8 to your supplement regime until you have had a scan and have got the all clear for this important test. It would be a good idea to watch the video of Warren above even if you feel you are not at risk. There is some interesting info in that video which may convince you to go ahead if you still have doubts.
If you have a CAC scan, and you have a zero-calcification score, then the good news is your risk of a cardiac event is very low, and you don't really need this product. In this case, we recommend a regime of one of the Total Balance products and one of the Omega 3 products aimed to keep you in optimal health.
Value for Money
On the surface of it CX8 does seem expensive. Unfortunately, the ingredients make it an expensive product to produce as they include products sourced from Tibet to the laboratories of the United States.
However, we can guarantee that it is excellent value for money. If you were able find products which contained these ingredients individually and put them altogether at the same dose rate it would cost at least 2 to 3 times more.
We are prepared to back up that statement with a guarantee. If you find another product that is as good as CX8 and of the same quality for the same price or less, we will refund up to three previous months' purchases of CX8, AND give you six months' future supply for FREE.
The selection of the ingredients for CX8 were made with no compromises. There is simply no better quality in the world. Warren did not cut any corners, he wanted the best for himself, his family and the customers.

What are the ingredients in CX8?
Refer to the ingredient tab for details.
How long do I need to take CX8?
It should be part of your daily supplement regime.
Can I take a part dose of CX8?
It is not desirable if you wish to get the full benefits of the product as the dose of each of the ingredients which have been shown to be effective in clinical studies are present in their optimal amount at the full dose.
What age is CX8 recommended from?
40+ although there can be instances in which it is desirable to start taking it at an earlier age. The ingredients in it are all beneficial for general overall health and there is no downside for any adult to take it at any age.
What are the main benefits of CX8?
There are five main benefits which are outlined in the description of the product.
Has CX8 been clinically tested?
It has been tested for purity and potency and accuracy to label but as it is a new product there has not been a clinical trial of it at this stage. However, the ingredients used are all supported by robust clinical trials.
Can I take CX8 with prescription medications?
There should be no issues with taking them whilst taking medications. As usual leave a gap of about three hours between taking supplements and medications, and also check with your Doctor to ensure that there are no possible negative interactions.
Will CX8 benefit high blood pressure?
Any improvement in the flow of the blood through the arteries will have a beneficial effect on blood pressure so you could expect an improvement.
Will CX8 help with blood circulation?
This is one of the main objectives of CX8.
Will CX8 support healthy inflammation?
This is one of CX8's main objectives.
How long will it take to see benefits from CX8?
Depending upon your personal situation you may start feeling benefits within a couple of weeks, although most benefits are unseen and unfelt and require testing to see the changes.
Will CX8 help with cholesterol?
There is strong clinical data on several of the ingredients present supporting their efficacy in reducing the oxidation of cholesterol which is the main problem with cholesterol. Also, the data shows an increase in the good HDL cholesterol and a decrease in the bad LDL.
Can I take CX8 with blood thinning medication?
There should not be a problem in most cases but you need to consult with your Doctor to confirm as the ingredients in CX8 help the overall flow of the blood and your Doctor may be able to lower the dose rate of the blood thinning medication.
Can I take CX8 and Total Balance together?
Absolutely as there is no serious duplication of ingredients.
Can CX8 been used with any of our range?
Yes, there is no negative interaction with any of our products. It is perfect to go with our Omega 3 QH/Ultra.
Can I take CX8 and Magnesium together?
We do not recommend that you take CX8 and Marine Magnesium with Potassium at the same time. This is because Magnesium may affect the efficacy of the Vitamin K2 ingredient which is present in CX8. Take CX8 in the morning if possible, as this increases your energy and then take the Magnesium at bedtime as it helps with sleep.
Why does CX8 cost so much?
The ingredients are extremely expensive. For example the form of Vit K Mk-7 is several times the cost of what we could source MK-7 from a Chinese manufacturer. The special Blackberry extract we are using is more than 10 times the cost of Blackberry powder. To try to find the equivalent of CX8 on the market would cost between US$200 - $300 for a 30 day supply. We have a special guarantee regarding the price.
How do I know if I need CX8?
You can never know for sure without doing a very extensive series of tests including a CAC scan (Coronary Artery Calcification). Unless your arteries are squeaky clean it is desirable that you take it.
What happens if I stop taking it?
You would continue to get benefit from it for some time after and then your system would continue to age and deteriorate as it would have if you had not started it in the first place. You would still be better off than if you hadn't taken it at all.
Can I take this if I have a diagnosed heart condition?
Absolutely. Make sure you keep your Doctor in the picture in case there are any issues with some medication.
Can I take this if I have stents?
Anything that helps blood flow and helps avoid a build up around the edges of a stent has to be helpful so the answer should be yes, but once again have your Doctor confirm this.
I have low blood pressure, should I take CX8?
CX8 is designed to help overall cardiovascular health and circulation so there is no downside in taking it if you have low blood pressure. Once again let your Doctor know if they have you on medication.
What causes calcification?
There are multiple causes ranging from lifestyle choices such as smoking, diets high in carbohydrates, diabetes and of course the biggest one…advancing age.
I have been taking Total Balance has this caused my calcification?
Absolutely not. In fact, Total Balance would help keep it at bay but it is not designed to be highly effective in this area.
Can too many supplements cause calcification?
Only if you are taking ones with excess calcium.
Are these vegan, gluten-free or vegetarian?
I got the new bottle of CX8 just in time, didn’t miss a day! Here’s something you might be interested in: I’ve been getting calf pain when I walk any distance for maybe 12 or 15 years. I’m 74, will be 75 in a month and have been a runner/walker for 35+ years. Now I just walk a mile because my calf’s feel so bad and have been taking a lot of days off, sometimes a week or two at a time because it’s pretty hard to psych up to walking with calf pain. Today I went walking and expected to be making a pain face at about a quarter mile but the calf pain had backed WAY down! By the time I got back to my starting point I was grinning and feeling soooo thankful for the reduction in pain! I’m thinking it’s the CX8 clearing out my leg arteries!! I’ve been taking it for 9 weeks and intend to keep at it! Thanks for all your effort developing CX8! Bruce, USA
I have calcium build up in my arteries and hoping CX8 will help me reduce it. I will get tested again in 3 months to monitor any reduction?
I am a 57 year old man. I have used daily Xtendlife's Total Balance Men's Premium and Omega 3/QH Ultra since 2012. I've tried at least a dozen other Xtendlife products over the years, but I typically discontinue use when I am not able to detect any improved health benefit. As with the vitamins and the fish oil, I have detected a significant improvement of my health with the use of CX8. For about the past four years, I have suffered from intermittent bouts of Afib. It typically came about when I consumed anything with artificial sweeteners (although Stevia and sugar alcohols don't seem to be a problem) or became dehydrated. From playing tennis on a warm day to drinking alcohol, I had to very closely monitor my hydration level. When afib is about to occur, I can feel it coming on, and I can often forestall it if I can get rehydrated quickly enough. Once it starts, it usually lasts from between 12 to 24 hours. Last month I decided to try CX8. I take it as directed. After about two weeks of daily use, I no longer experience afib - whether playing tennis in 90 degree heat or drinking my favorite bourbon. I still try to maintain hydration, but I'm no longer obsessed with doing so. As with the other Xtendlife products I use, CX8 is another that I will take for the rest of my life or for as long as Xtendlife is in business and evidence of their products' efficacy continue to exist.
Excited to learn of this product. Have been taking it regularly for several months and have noticed difference in heart function. Gives me peace of mind.
First, I was impressed with the association with Ivor Cummins coverage of your company and leader. Then the coverage of C8X unique components and benefits to heart health were a match for my efforts for continuing my health. The service on your site offers options and is easy to use. Thanks
