Padma Basic…is it a good Supplement?



Question: from Sam

How does your cardiac product compare to Padma Basic.

Answer: from Warren Matthews of Xtend-Life

I have to say Sam it doesn’t compare at all! Padma Basic is simply a mixture of various herbs, fruits and even lettuce leaves. All the ingredients are ‘lumped’ together under a ‘proprietary formula’ which is a convenient way of avoiding consumers seeing what proportions of the ‘cheap or expensive’ ingredients.

There is no indication of what the active ingredients are in the herbs etc, whether they are simply dried and put in the capsules, or, whether they are extracts.

For example, what part of the Iceland Moss are they using and how much? We use Huperzine A in some of our products which is derived from moss, but it can only be used in very small amounts as it can, like many herbs go from being beneficial in the correct doses to toxic in high doses.

I am very sceptical of companies that hide behind a ‘proprietary’ formula particularly if that formula is ALL proprietary. I am even more sceptical when a company charges so much for so little. Over $30 for 60 tablets with only 24,120mgs of ingredients per bottle! In contrast we have around 112,000mgs of active ingredients in a bottle of Cardio-Klenz, and they are all listed, and they are enteric coated.

I did not see anything listed in their ingredients that would give me comfort if I had a heart condition, and/or wanted to give my arteries a spring clean. On the other hand Cardio-Klenz is full of them. Hope this helps.
