Homeopathic Pet Pack Remedy Kit

Pet Pack: Basic 36 Homeopathic Remedy Kit + The Homeopathic Treatment of Small Animals

Our Basic 36 Kit is great for humans, but did you know that the homeopathic medicines in it are also ideal for treating many Injuries and common ailments that your pets may suffer? If you have pets why not get our Pet Pack and find out how to help them too? One ailment pets often get is Travel Sickness, so just order our Pet Pack today and with your order we will send you a free bottle of Cocculus, the No.1 Homeopathic Medicine for Nausea during motion.

Homeopathy is a powerful and gentle healing modality for pets, and is often more effective than allopathic medicines. To obtain the best results, all aspects of the pet - mental, physical and emotional - must be considered before prescribing a remedy. Homeopathy is used to induce a curative healing in animals as opposed to giving medications that only address specific physical symptoms.

For example, a pet is given steroids to suppress symptoms such as inflammation or itching, but the symptoms return when the drugs are discontinued. With Homeopathy, the symptoms completely subside because Homeopathic Remedies act to have a curative action from deep in the life force.

Homeopathy is effective for all pets including dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, cows and horses. You can even treat fish by dropping Homeopathic Remedies into their tanks.

Here are some examples of how Homeopathy can be used to treat your pet. You should keep several remedies on hand and administer them as needed at home (all in the Basic 36 Kit):

• Arnica for traumas and overexertion • Carbo vegetabilis for weakness or shock after SurgeryLedum for insect bites or stings • Nux vomica for Vomiting and diarrhea or poisoning • Hypericum for animals who have had tooth extractions

Rescue Remedy is useful as well, for sudden Stress, Trauma, panic or disorientation.

Dosage and Application:

There are two important laws that you need to follow to use Homoeopathic medicines successfully:

THE LAW OF SIMILARS means matching the symptom picture of an illness or injury to the symptom picture of the medicine. To help you do just that, this guide has two distinct sections. Complaints you can treat are described first, followed by a Mini Materia Medica. This describes, briefly, the symptom picture of 36 frequently-needed remedies. Begin by looking up the complaint you want to treat and noting which remedies may help. Next, before prescribing, turn to the Mini Materia Medica and see which description most closely fits the person you are treating.

If you have given two or three doses of a particular remedy without any reaction, it was probably the wrong choice. It won’t have done any harm, but you should try to find a remedy that matches the over-all picture better.

THE LAW OF THE MINIMUM DOSE means using as little of a medicine as possible to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanism. Give one dose (in this case one small pill) and wait to see what relief it brings. If you have a reaction to the remedy (either an improvement or an aggravation of symptoms) do not take any more medicine. Only repeat the dose if the symptoms stop improving before a full recovery is reached or if the same symptoms return (i.e. the case relapses).

If the symptoms change significantly select a new remedy to fit the new picture. If in any doubt, wait. Giving the body more medicine than it needs will not improve or speed up the action of the medicine, if anything it may stop the medicine from being effective. By using these two laws homoeopathy provides a completely individual prescription and dosage that treats each person’s “dis-ease” as unique to them.

Pillules can be given orally, added to water or diluted in milk. Rescue Remedy can be squirted into the corner of your pet’s mouth or rubbed into an ear.

Here is what is included in your Pet Pack:

A comprehensive Guide to treating small pets and birds homoeopathically - written by the veterinary Dean to the Faculty of Homoeopathy.

It contains an extremely good introduction to the general principles and practice of Homeopathy and gives general indications of treatment across the small animal kingdom (eg: diarrhoea) with specific diseases also being highlighted in individual species such as guinea-pigs cats dogs rabbits chinchillas and so on.

An invaluable reference for veterinary surgeons breeders and owners.

The Basic 36 Remedy Kit includes the following remedies:

Xtend-Life’s GLM-Omega 3 Plus

May 10th, 2006

Do you suffer…

If you are like most people over 40 you may find that you have these symptoms in varying degrees…indeed you may be amongst the 70 million Americans, 4.5 million+ Australians and 7 million+ adults in the UK who suffer Joint Discomfort each year?

Symptoms like these are often ignored or simply ‘lived’ with because they just come and go, or are not severe enough to warrant embarking on an intensive protocol using our Arthrit-Eze formula or another natural or drug related protocol.

However by ignoring these symptoms the underlying cause of the condition will likely worsen with time, ‘creeping’ up on you until you are left with the pain and restriction of a much more serious Arthritic condition which may ultimately lead to many other health problems…

…Early in 2005 our Research and Development team set out to find an effective low cost solution that may help those of you experiencing these milder discomforts…

After months of research and testing a solution was found…ALL natural of course…using a combination of our already successful Omega 3/ DHA Esters, a pure pharmaceutical grade, molecularly distilled Fish Oil from a New Zealand cold water fish. PLUS, a concentrated extract of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel.

This marine mussel is unique to New Zealand and has gained a reputation worldwide as an effective Anti-Inflammatory and natural pain reliever and supports connective tissue and joint function to enhance ease of mobility.

Our R & D people were ultimately successful in combining 500mgs of a special high potency extract of this Green Lipped Mussel with another 2,500mgs of our Omega 3/ DHA Esters and some natural bee’s wax, to bring you a potential solution to mild Joint Pain and inflammation… GLM-Omega 3 Plus.

Now you can get your full daily quota of Omega 3 DHA, PLUS the benefits of pure New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel extract in just 3 soft gels a day!

Best of all we have been able to achieve this and make it available to you for only US$12.10 a month more than you would pay for our Omega 3/ DHA Esters alone, making this a practical and economical alternative to much more expensive natural or pharmaceutical options.

GLM-Omega 3 Plus provides a unique balance of high strength Anti-Inflammatory action and joint strength improvement.

This may help to….

  • Stop the progression of connective tissue disease
  • Encourage the healing of Arthritic or sore joints
  • Reduce joint inflammation, and
  • Increase joint lubrication.

So, if you have some ‘niggling’ discomfort then this product is worth giving a try. Even if your discomfort goes beyond the niggling stage but you can’t manage the expense of our full Arthrit-Eze protocol you may find that GLM-Omega 3 Plus helps.

General Info

New Zealand green-lipped mussels (Perna canaliculus) is unique to New Zealand and has gained reputation worldwide as it contains Anti-Inflammatory components that may benefit joint health. It may contain a prostaglandin inhibitor that exerts an Anti-Inflammatory effect. Researchers report that an extract of New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel reduced symptoms in dogs with advanced Arthritis. New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel is used for symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis.

The mussel is harvested whole. The meat is then removed, dried and powdered and then usually sold as Green Lipped Mussel extract. However, this method does not actually provide a true extract. Only one company has the technology to extract a true concentrated extract from the shell. This company is in Christchurch, New Zealand (only a few minutes away from our own facility). They extract the active ingredients, keeping all the active lipids intact, and end up with a 5:1 ratio, which enables the usual 2,500mgs potency offered by other extracts to be concentrated into just 500 mgs.

It works by affecting the inflammatory pathway of prostaglandin and leukotriene Metabolism and inhibiting the inflammatory responses.

Are my Aches and Pains signs of impending Arthritis or another degenerative disease?

Aches and Pains can occur for many reasons and do not always mean that you will develop a chronic condition. However, regular niggling Aches, Pains and stiffness can be an indication of a potential condition and early treatment may help to prevent this.

How many bottles do I need to purchase to see a difference and how long will it take GLM-Omega 3-Plus to work?

To see the best and most rapid results we suggest that you follow our ‘recommended protocol’ suggestion of 3 soft gels per day, which equates to 1 bottle per month. It is ok to double that dose rate for a couple of months.

How can your formula be so pure and effective at such a comparatively low cost?

Because we supply direct to our customers and do frequent production runs this finished product is rarely older than 60 days when shipped to our customers.

Alternatively, you may email us to consult with us regarding potential conflicts with particular medications or other natural substances.

I am taking a NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug) prescribed by my GP. Is it safe to take GLM-Omega 3-Plus with this?

As our GLM-Omega 3-Plus formula is an all-in-one natural product it should be safe to take with most other pharmaceutical medications. However, as with all medications you should discuss taking this supplement with your physician. We recommend leaving a 3–4 hour gap between taking any prescription medications and taking your supplementation.

I am taking other nutritional supplements and natural medications. Is this ok?

There is generally no problem with taking additional supplements or remedies from other suppliers, although it is usually unnecessary as Xtend-Life have put together various protocols to cover most peoples’ needs.

However you can still add other supplements, whether they are from us or someone else. It is important to remember though that an excess of additional supplements or some ingredients can potentially cause negative results and in severe cases be detrimental to health. All Xtend-Life products are designed to be taken with each other without these risks.

What else can I do to help ease my Joint Pain?

There are many moderate weight-bearing exercises that can be undertaken to help strengthen the muscles, cartilage, tendons and ligaments around the joints, and the bones of the joints themselves to help prevent further damage. These should be undertaken with supervision from your GP or health advisor.

A generally healthy lifestyle is of course important alongside any supplement regime to strengthen your Immune System, muscles and circulation. A healthy and balanced diet is of course also important to maintain.

Can I get ongoing advice and help from Xtend-Life?

Yes. Xtend-Life experts are here to answer any questions you have regarding their products and their uses for your condition.

Xtend Life’s Total Balance Womens Plus

May 2nd, 2006

The degeneration of our essential organs is why most of us will die from a viral infection, cancer, a stroke, or Heart Disease! This is why we MUST address the cause of organ degeneration and help prevent us from becoming a victim of these or other preventable illnesses!

Our family of Total Balance products was designed to help achieve this in conjunction with sensible lifestyle and dietary choices. Six years ago our Research & Development department, under the direction of Prof. Dr. A Munem Daoud PhD., MSc., ND, developed a ‘foundation’ supplement that is considered by many experts to be the best in the world.

Since 1999 we have revised the formula several times in line with the latest PROVEN scientific knowledge! We are now on our 4th generation version which is an advanced professional product containing around 80 nutrients, some of which are rarely found in ‘normal’ supplements because of cost and the need to use them with a sophisticated delivery system (L-Glutathione is an example of one of these nutrients as unless it is released in the upper intestine the stomach acids render it ineffective).

We solve the problem in Total Balance (and some of our other products) by utilizing a sophisticated delivery system called enteric coating. This releases all the nutrients in the upper intestine and ensures all are 100% bio-available.

The three Total Balance versions are called:

Total Balance Unisex…which is suitable for teenagers or young adults or older women (+ 70) Total Balance Womens Plus…which is suitable for Women 30+ Total Balance Mens Plus…which is suitable for Men 30+

Total Balance Womens Plus

Hormones play an important role in the overall health and wellbeing of a woman. Some women during middle age resort to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to help relieve symptoms associated with Menopause. But as the evidence now shows there are risks associated with this practice.

Quite apart from the general symptoms many women experience during Menopause…hot flushes, night time sweating etc, women of all ages can experience monthly menstrual discomfort.

We do not advocate the taking of hormones in an attempt to ‘balance’ hormones because by doing so it is likely you will upset the delicate nature of your body’s own ‘hormone factory’. A much safer way to avoid the discomfort and the risks of HRT is by providing your body with specialized nutrients in the form of hormonal precursors.

These nutrient precursors are a form of ‘fuel’ that steadily depletes as you get older. By incorporating those which have been scientifically proven in our Total Balance formula we are able to help you support your body’s own hormone balancing system. These in turn have been found to help minimize the symptoms of Menopause.

Some of these key precursors are:

All of these substances have been incorporated in Total Balance Womens Plus along with certain specialized enzymes which specifically assist in the bio-availability of the isoflavones.

Of course Total Balance Womens Plus also contains all the other key nutrients that are in our other two versions of Total Balance, namely a broad spectrum of:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Trace minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Amino Acids
  • Neuronutrients
  • Bioflavonoids
  • Carotonoids
  • Herb extracts
  • Enzymes
  • Other specialty substances and co-factors.

Combined with the specific ‘female’ nutrients in Women’s Plus these have been found to help with PMS and other menstrual discomfort.

Each ingredient serves a specific individual purpose as well as complementing and enhancing each other. The interaction of then has been studied at molecular level and at the various metabolic pathways followed to ensure maximum effectiveness.

All ingredients have proven scientific profiles.

General Info

It is difficult to convey in a few short paragraphs just how unique Total Balance really is. However you can get a ‘feel’ of it if you examine the ingredients list carefully, which can be found by clicking on the Ingredients tab above.

You will find ingredients in it that you are unlikely to be familiar with. For example, we refer to L-Glutathione earlier which is essential for cell health and organ survival. As we get older we simply do not produce enough of it. It is rare to see it in a supplement because it costs more than 80 times as much as vitamin C.

Other ingredients that you may not have heard of are some of the specialized enzymes that we use which assist greatly in the your body’s uptake of many other nutrients. We have nutrients such as ATP and RNA, specialized Herbs and substances such as DIM, which is the active ingredient of broccoli, and so on. They all serve a specific purpose.

Also, you don’t have to worry about the ingredients being available to and assimilated by your body. Not only do we use our enteric coating process, but we also test and ensure every batch meets the British and US Pharmacopeia for disintegration.

Thousands of customers in more than 30 countries throughout the world have been using Total Balance for years with exceptional long term results. If you combine this product with our Omega 3 DHA/Esters you will have a sound supplement foundation.

Unless you are taking a statin drug there is no need for you to take a CoQ10 supplement with Total Balance as we have provided all the precursors of COQ10 in the formula to ensure your body produces a more than adequate amount.

Delivery System

Having all the potent ingredients and ensuring they interact correctly is of little use if they cannot reach the cells and organs they are destined for. To ensure that they do we utilize a delivery system, which is rare for nutritional supplements but fairly common with some expensive pharmaceutical drugs. This delivery system is called enteric coating…

This system ensures the integrity of the Total Balance ingredients (in particular the active enzymes and specialized nutrients such as L-Glutathione) as they pass through the stomach. The special acid resistance enteric coating protects all the ingredients as they pass through into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the lymphatic system and dispersed throughout the body to nourish the cells and organs.

When most conventional tablets or capsules are released in the stomach there is the possibility of epithelial damage which can cause discomfort in some people. The new Total Balance tablets avoid this problem.

The net result of this delivery system is:

  • Greater potency of most ingredients due to the elimination of acid damage.
  • The potency of some ingredients can be enhanced as much as five fold!
  • Greater convenience as they do not have to be taken with a meal.

Guarantee

Because of our quality control systems we are able to make the following unequivocal guarantee!

Potency & Content

  • All ingredients used have a Certificate of Analysis on file confirming their potency.
  • All ingredients are tested prior to manufacture for microbiological contamination.
  • All ingredients, as stated on the Xtend-Life label are present in the stated quantities.

Are there any discounts for Bulk purchases? Our policy is to keep our selling price at the lowest possible level to ensure customers get maximum value for money. However, we do offer a genuine customer loyalty program for those customers who order regularly. This program provides product discounts and shipping subsidies.

Can you tell me more about the ingredients in Total Balance Womens Plus? Total Balance Womens Plus is unique because Xtend-Life’s R & D team have spent time researching the most important ingredients and their individual and compatible clinical trials to formulate the best possible results.

It is important to note that although each ingredient has it’s individual benefits, it is only when formulated together in specific quantities and ratios that it is possible to achieve worthwhile results at an optimal level. Studies have shown that many nutrients when combined synergistically can increase their effectiveness by as much as fifteen times.

Why is the Vitamin E Dosage in the Total Balance only 100 IU instead of the general recommended dosage by experts of 400IU? Most long-term human supplementation studies show benefits at daily vitamin E intakes between 100 and 400 IU.

Because vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin it is important not to ingest high levels of it on a regular basis. The amounts of Vitamin E that we use are still within the clinically proven beneficial range. This protocol removes the risk of overdosing in this nutrient for our customers who are using multiple Xtend-Life products which also contain small amounts of Vitamin E.

We also only use the natural form of Vitamin E which is considered to have greater efficacy than the synthetic type.

Bear in mind also that in Total Balance we use a broad spectrum Tocotrienol which significantly improves the potency of Vitamin E.

Why is there so little Vitamin C in your Total Balance formula? Vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid in a dose of over 400 mg daily (when taken orally) can do more harm than good because of its ability to generate free radicals, due to the reaction of hydrochloric acid in the stomach with the ascorbic acid. The levels contained in Total Balance are sufficient, even if you are on a less than optimal diet. The manner in which we combine this and other ingredients within the formula enables smaller doses to be much more effective than those found in a typical ‘multi’.

We have added Vitamin C to Total Balance as a co-factor, i.e. to help the body get the maximum benefits of all the other ingredients. Many other Antioxidants in Total Balance - Vitamins A & E, the Amino Acids and others - act in this way also.

If you feel you need to take high doses of vitamin C orally then it is best not use ascorbic acid, but rather the salt form of vitamin C, calcium ascorbate, also called Ester C. Ascorbic acid ‘mops up’ free radicals when taken in amounts of up to 400 mg per day. In excess of that amount, it generates free radicals. The only exception to this is when a person is diseased (for example from an inflammatory condition, or a virus such as a cold or Flu). This free radical generating effect can be avoided by using calcium ascorbate, for example, which avoids that type of reaction in the stomach.

A further alternative is intravenous vitamin C, which bypasses the stomach. Most doctors and practitioners are unaware of this as it is a bio-chemical matter rather than a medical one.

I notice that Total Balance does not include CoEnzymeQ10, why is that? CoEnzymeQ10 does not need to be included because the ingredients in the formula stimulate your body to produce its own CoQ10. If you take the full dose of Total Balance (6 tablets per day) your body will produce at least as much CoQ10 as if you had taken a 100mg tablet of CoQ10. CoQ10 is a synthetic supplement although it is a natural substance that is produced by your body. It is very unstable and only a very small percentage of CoQ10 supplements ever get into the blood stream…example, about 5mgs of a 100mgs tablet…which is normally enough.

If various ingredients can combine to make CoQ10 can they also combine to make other perhaps dangerous substances? Yes, they can. This is why you should never take a multi-nutrient supplement unless you are confident that it has been professionally designed and is manufactured under strict conditions. Synergy when combining ingredients is crucial, which is why formulas such as this must be prepared by a highly qualified professional team. Our research team headed by Prof. Dr A. Munem Daoud spent thousands of hours researching all the interactions of the ingredients prior to finalizing the new generation formula. There are only a handful of scientists in the world with this level of expertise.

What effect should I feel after I begin taking Total Balance? This varies from person to person. Some people will notice a marked improvement in their energy levels within days and an increased feeling of well being. On the other hand some people may take some months before they feel any direct effects.

If I don’t feel any effects does that mean that I am not getting the benefits? Not at all! Your cells and organs are getting the benefits even if you can’t directly feel it in the short term. Just as an example. Bilberry extract, lutein, rutin, and Zeaxanthin are nutrients that are well proven in playing a significant role in the prevention of age related Macular Degeneration. These nutrients will still be quietly working away at cellular level to provide your eyes with the protection that they need. Macular Degeneration can have a devastating effect on your eyesight as you get older! It can sometimes take 12 months to ’see’ these benefits.

Other nutrients are doing similar jobs in other parts of the body. This is going on at cellular level but you may be totally unaware of it.

Is it possible that I could feel any bad effects after I start taking Total Balance? Yes it is. Depending upon the state of your health you may experience symptoms such as Nausea even Headaches over the first few days. This can occur if you have high levels of toxins in your body. Total Balance helps activate your systems to help get rid of them, sometimes resulting in these mild temporary side effects. If you experience this reduce the dose rate until they pass and make sure that you drink plenty of pure water to help flush your system.

I have a problem with Depression. Is it likely that I will notice a difference? Yes, it is very likely that you will. The neuronutrients included in the formula have been shown in multiple clinical studies to be of considerable benefit to people suffering from Depression and Stress.

Will Total Balance Womens Plus interfere with other prescription medications? As with all supplements caution must be applied particularly if you are on medication of any sort. Total Balance contains ingredients such as gingko biloba which help thin the blood so if you are on blood thinning medication this has to be taken into account. However, we have kept the amount to within safety limits for most prescription drugs.

Nonetheless, 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. The same cautions apply to Pregnant and lactating women.

I am taking Estraderm (estradiol) as prescribed by my GP. Is it safe to take Total Balance Womens Plus with this? As our Total Balance Womens Plus formula is an all-in-one natural product it should be safe to take with most other pharmaceutical medications. However, as with all medications you should discuss taking this supplement with your physician. We recommend leaving a 3–4 hour gap between taking any prescription medications and taking your supplementation.

I am suffering terribly from many Menopausal symptoms at the moment, will I notice a difference? Yes, it is very possible you will notice quite a difference. Total Balance Womens Plus contains ingredients such as Dong Quai, Red Clover extract, Wild Yam and Black Cohosh in specific dosages and combinations with other Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, Amino Acids, co-factors and other speciality elements to help reduce and alleviate such symptoms.

I am taking other nutritional supplements and natural medications. Is this ok? Generally yes, but it 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. For example, high doses of Vitamin C can actually contribute to the production of free radicals. The levels that are contained in Total Balance are sufficient even if you are on a less than optimal diet. The manner in which they are combined within the formula enables the smaller doses to be much more effective than those found in a typical ‘multi’.

Vitamins and minerals are the cheapest ingredients in the formula. If they were needed we would have increased the amounts with minimal impact on the cost.

The exception to this is calcium which some women need an additional amount of. This is why we formulated a separate stand alone calcium product.

What else can I do to help myself? To reach optimum health it is always important to ensure a generally healthy lifestyle with any supplement regime. Exercise, even moderate Exercise, has proven overall health benefits to strengthen your Immune System, heart, muscles, circulation and joints. 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 as well as 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 their products and their uses for your condition.

Xtend Life’s Omega 3 DHA Esters

April 27th, 2006

Omega 3 Fatty Acids benefit the hearts of healthy people and those at high risk of, or who have cardiovascular disease.” (American Heart Association)

Omega 3 essential Fatty Acids have long been recognized for their significant health benefits. Clinical studies have determined that the main benefits are derived from DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and to a lesser extent EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid).

Although you will receive various health benefits from Omega 3s when taken from plant sources such as flax seed oil, you may miss out on the special benefits from DHA and EPA. This is because oils from plant sources do not contain DHA or EPA. Instead they contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which is a precursor to DHA and EPA.

Therefore you have to convert the ALA to DHA and EPA….however, if your health is compromised in any way, or you are elderly this conversion may not take place.

Only Fish Oils provide DHA and EPA in a natural form that your body can easily assimilate. No conversion is required by the body. Natural Fish Oils do however have a number of drawbacks:

  • High levels of contaminants in the form of PCB’s.
  • Heavy metals, including mercury.
  • Low levels of DHA, the most beneficial component of Fish Oil.

As most Fish Oil capsules do not come from the same country where they were encapsulated, they are also subject to lengthy transport in tankers, additional handling, and additives to prevent them from becoming rancid.

Early in 2003 Xtend-Life recognized these drawbacks and after a year of development perfected a Fish Oil product that addressed these problems!

The result…a pure pharmaceutical grade, molecularly distilled Fish Oil ester with NO CONTAMINANTS and with exceptionally high levels of DHA!

This was made possible by using a cold deep water New Zealand fish called Hoki. This fish has naturally high levels of DHA which is further concentrated during the purification process. It is caught in the pristine Southern Ocean and is naturally free from contaminants.

As another plus…the fish is harvested, processed and the oil/esters encapsulated in New Zealand under the strictest controls possible so there is no risk of contamination due to excessive handling.

Furthermore, we provide the formula in the ester form instead of the usual triglyceride form of most Fish Oils. The body has to convert the triglycerides to ester in order to use it, so by taking it in the ester form in the first instance the bio-availability is greatly improved!

And finally…the purity and freshness of this product is such that we do not need to add any additives or preservatives.

Note from Warren Matthews, Chairman of Xtend-Life

“Not only do our customers depend on us to provide the best oil available, but so do our staff, not to mention my family…and myself. We will not therefore compromise on quality.

We could source raw oil for our formula from third world countries (as most manufacturers do) costing 1/10th the price of our local oil, but we won’t do that because, although we could purify it, additives used to prevent rancidity during transport could not be removed.”

As well as the cardiovascular and brain function benefits Omega 3 / DHA offers, research shows that Omega 3 also helps prevent and treat a number of other disorders, including:

Along with our Total Balance formula Xtend-Life Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil should form part of your daily health strategy, irrespective of your age!

Cardiovascular Benefits

General heart benefits: Heart Disease is a widespread health problem in modern society. Fish Oil, rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids (DHA and EPA) has been proven in many clinical studies to benefit heart health, also supported by the American Heart Association guidelines which recommend the benefits of consumption of fish and Fish Oil. They recommend two servings for healthy persons and a daily serving of fish or Fish Oil supplement containing at least 900mg of Fish Oil for persons with Heart Disease.

Lowers Triglycerides: The effectiveness of Fish Oil in lowering blood triglycerides (fats) known to be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease has been well established in multiple clinical studies. Additionally, research has proven that DHA present in Fish Oil lowers the level of small, dense particles of LDL cholesterol, which are associated with Heart Disease. The level of large buoyant particles of HDL cholesterol (which is desirable) is increased. Total HDL cholesterol remains unchanged by DHA supplementation. HDL cholesterol benefits cardiovascular health.

Benefits Hypertension (High Blood Pressure): Fish Oil has been shown to lower mild Hypertension when it is due to cardiovascular disease, specifically High Cholesterol and Atherosclerosis (hardening of the artery walls).

Anti-clotting: Fish Oil helps avoid thrombosis (blood clots) as it prevents platelets (smallest cells in the blood) to stick together and form blood clots.

Reduces Heart Irregularities: Fish Oil… especially the DHA content of it has been shown to lower heart rates and also prevent arrhythmias (disturbances of the normal rhythm in the heart’s beating), thus decreasing the chance of sudden death by a heart attack.

Circulatory problems: Circulatory problems such as varicose veins and Raynaud’s disease benefit from Fish Oil. Fish Oil stimulates blood circulation and increases the breakdown of fibrin, a compound involved in clot and Scar formation.

Brain function

Depression: Persons with mood disorders such as Depression benefit from Fish Oil supplementation. Lack of Omega-3 Fatty Acids and in particular DHA has been linked by researchers to Depression. Fatty Acids are essential in the healthy formation of the brain’s nerve cell membranes and membrane fluidity. The brain is the richest source of Fatty Acids in the body, and because nerve cell function depends on proper membrane functioning and membrane fluidity, changes in membrane fluidity have a negative effect on behavior, mood and mental function.

Aggression: A new study of teenagers has found that Fish Oil and DHA consumption relates to lower hostility rates in teenagers. Hostility has been shown to predict the development and manifestation of Heart Disease.

Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), dyslexia and dyspraxia: Like Depression and other mood disorders, persons who suffer from ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia (absence of ability to perform coordinated skilled movements or clumsiness) benefit from Fish Oil supplementation. ADHD has been linked by research to lack of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, necessary for formation and repair of brain cell membranes, especially in the developing central Nervous system of children. Fish Oil may improve the efficiency of nerve impulses and neurotransmitters involved in brain function.

Memory, learning and Alzheimer’s Disease: Studies have proven that Omega-3 Fatty Acids improve brain function and that intake of Fish Oil and DHA is linked to a lowered risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Studies suggest that Fish Oil and DHA may protect the Nervous system from degeneration. DHA and Fish Oil have been proven to stimulate memory and learning abilities. Recent research learns that mothers who take DHA as a supplement during Pregnancy and lactation may increase the IQ of their babies.

Allergies

Studies learn that Omega-3 fatty acid-intake by mothers during Pregnancy may protect babies against the development of Allergies. Fish Oil has been found to protect against symptoms of hay Fever, sinus infections, asthma, food Allergies and Allergic Skin Conditions such as hives and Eczema.

Fish Oil lowers the level of airway narrowing (which causes restriction of Breathing during an Asthma Attack) and calms inflammation. Studies have shown improved control in asthmatics that eat fish rich in Omega-3 essential Fatty Acids on a weekly basis.

Skin Disorders and skin health

Skin Disorders such as Psoriasis have been shown to improve from Fish Oils. In the skin of persons with Psoriasis the amount of compounds causing inflammation is many times greater than normal. Fish Oil inhibits the production of these inflammatory compounds. Fish Oil improves the health of skin, nails and hair.

Arthritis and Gout

Fish Oil supplements have been shown to benefit in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), and other inflammatory forms of Arthritis, such as occurs in some persons with Psoriasis and Gout. EPA and DHA in Fish Oil reduce the amount of compounds causing inflammation.

Diabetes

Diabetics suffering from non-Insulin dependent Diabetes or type II Diabetes benefit from Fish Oil supplementation. Research show that persons who consume 5-10 percent of their dietary energy consumption in the form of fish or Fish Oil, have less Insulin resistance, which causes diminished glucose uptake and glucose Metabolism in non-Insulin dependent diabetics. Fish Oil enhances Insulin secretion from beta-cells in the pancreas, regulating blood Sugar Levels. DHA plays a protective role in Diabetic neuropathy in all forms of Diabetes.

Immune System and cancer

The intake of Fish Oil has been proven to be beneficial for the body’s Immune Function. Research has linked intake of Fish Oil to a lowered risk of breast cancer and prostate cancer.

Women’s benefits

The consumption of Fish Oil lowers the risk for cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis in post-Menopausal women. (Pre)Menstrual symptoms such as menstrual pain are often alleviated from the use of Fish Oil supplementation. Omega-3 Fatty Acids are converted into pain relieving substances (prostaglandins type-3) that control contractions of the uterus, which cause the cramping.

Visual function

Research has shown that consumption of Fish Oil is linked to lowered risk of age related Macular Degeneration, an eye condition which is the leading cause of severe visual loss in people over age 50. The macula is the central area in the retina of the eye used for fine Focus such as reading. Omega-3 Fatty Acids form an important part of the building blocks of the retina. Fish Oil intake may improve Focus, color, perception and clarity of vision.

Inflammatory bowel disease

Fish Oil has been proven to be beneficial in intestinal health. Fish Oil has an Anti-Inflammatory effect in inflammatory bowel disease (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease).

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Xtend-Life Omega 3/DHA Esters? They are a highly concentrated and purified form of natural Fish Oil. Only one fish is used to manufacture this oil. It is called New Zealand Hoki and it is harvested from the cold Southern Ocean surrounding the southern part of New Zealand. Unlike other Fish Oils this product has a high concentration of DHA which scientist believe to be the most beneficial component of Fish Oil. Even though the ‘crude’ hoki Fish Oil itself is considered to be the purest in the world, we still refine and purify it further by using a process called molecular distillation which removes any residue impurities and thus enables it to be considered pharmaceutical grade.

What are the advantages of Xtend-Life’s product over other Fish Oil products? Freshness and purity! Our oil is processed close to the port of landing, and unlike other products which have been transported all around the world in tankers and in less than ideal conditions it is not necessary to put in additives to Mask any rancidity. Also, there is the comfort in knowing the type of fish used. Most other products use a mixture of fish type sourced from third world countries. Additionally, because we supply direct to our customers and do frequent production runs the finished product is never older than 60 – 90 days when shipped. This is quite unique in the supplement industry.

Why is it in an ‘ester’ form? Bio-availability! Most Fish Oils are in a triglyceride form. The body has to convert this triglyceride compound into an ester before it can be used. Therefore, by providing the compound in an ester form already we are providing the body with less work to do, enabling it to Concentrate in actually using the ingredient’s benefits! An ester is formed when an alcohol combines with an acid in a reaction to form an Organic compound.

Are Omega 3/DHA Esters safe to use? Absolutely! Omega 3/DHA Esters are made from pure New Zealand Hoki fish and are 100% natural. They contain no pharmaceutical ingredients.

What is the recommended dosage? We recommend between 2 – 4 soft gels per day. In other words 1 – 2 bottles per month.

Some Companies suggest much higher dose rates. Why don’t you? This would be because with most products you need to take higher doses to achieve similar levels of DHA. Many products have less than half the amounts of DHA and thus require double the dosage to equate to the same amount.

Are there any discounts for Bulk purchases? Our policy is to keep our selling price at the lowest possible level to ensure customers get maximum value for money. However, we do offer a genuine customer loyalty program for those customers who order regularly. This program provides product discounts and shipping subsidies.

Can you tell me more about the ingredients in Omega 3/DHA Esters? If you refer to the ingredients on this website you will see the amount of Omega 3 per soft gel. The DHA and EPA are part of the Omega 3 component. The balance of the soft gel consists of purified Fish Oil which contains a wide spectrum of other Fatty Acids. We add a small amount of a broad spectrum natural Vitamin E to act as a natural preservative when the oil is put into the soft gel.

What is the soft gel made of? It is made out of a highly purified, pharmaceutical grade bovine gelatin extract. Unlike a hard capsule it is not practical to manufacture soft gels using a vegetable source. Most pharmaceutical soft gels are manufactured using the same raw material.

Are there any side effects associated with taking Omega 3/DHA Esters? There have been no reported side effects of Xtend-Life Omega 3/DHA Esters.

Can Omega 3/DHA Esters be taken while Pregnant or nursing? Most physicians recommend this product for Pregnant or nursing mothers as it may help in positive development of the child’s brain. However, we always recommend that customers who are Pregnant or nursing consult with their physician before using any of our products.

Will Omega 3/DHA Esters interfere with other prescription medications? It is highly unlikely. However, high doses may enhance blood thinning. It is rare that there is any interaction with a prescription medicine. If in doubt please consult your physician or email us and we will check our data bases for any potential conflicts..

I have a problem with stiff joints, although I have not been diagnosed with Arthritis. Will I notice a difference? Yes, it is very possible you will notice quite a difference. General stiffness in joints and aching/’creaking’ bones often benefit from a regular intake of this product.

I am taking other nutritional supplements and natural medications. Is this ok? Yes, there is generally no problem with taking additional supplements or remedies from other suppliers. However, if you are taking a lot of supplements be careful that you don’t overdose on some ingredients or have interactions between them. It may be that you might be able to put together a better combination with some professional help. If you would like some help in this area please email us for assistance.

Is this product compatible with all other Xtend-Life products? Yes, it can be combined with any of them.

Xtend-Life’s Total Balance Men’s Plus

April 20th, 2006

Once a man passes the age of 30 years the health of certain organs start to be put at risk…for example, the prostate. Also, the production of certain hormones within the body begins to slow down. In additional to less testosterone being produced some of it is converted to estrogen with various negative results.

As with all degenerative diseases they are undetectable in the early stages and very difficult to rectify when they are progressed to the point of being detectable. Enlarged Prostate and prostate cancer being two obvious examples!

Whereas we use the best available science to ensure that we include those nutrients that have been shown helpful in preventing degenerative diseases common to both men and women, there are specific issues that men have to face that need to be addressed.

The example above of an Enlarged Prostate is a good one. In order to maintain a healthy prostate you need adequate supplies of zinc…but just not any type of zinc! The zinc which is commonly found in supplements and which we use is zinc citrate. Although we use this in all the Total Balance formulas, we also add a generous helping of zinc aspartate. Why? Because zinc citrate follows a different metabolic pathway to that of zinc aspartate! It goes to various organs but NOT to the prostate where it is needed.

Therefore, to ensure that you get the protection that you need from the zinc it has to be of the correct type. This is just one example.

Chrysin is another good example, which is not in either of our other two versions of Total Balance. It helps inhibit the conversion of testosterone to estrogen thus naturally raising the levels of testosterone. It works!

There are other specialty ingredients that we use in this product specifically for men.

As with all the Total Balance range, Mens Plus contains:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Trace minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Amino Acids
  • Neuronutrients
  • Bioflavonoids
  • Carotonoids
  • Herb extracts
  • Enzymes
  • Other specialty substances and co-factors.

Each ingredient serves a specific individual purpose as well as complementing and enhancing each other. The interaction of then has been studied at molecular level and at the various metabolic pathways followed to ensure maximum effectiveness. All ingredients have proven scientific profiles.

What are the benefits of taking Total Balance Mens Plus?

Total Balance Mens Plus addresses those specific needs of the male reproductive system, helping to boost virility and contribute to the prevention of male-specific diseases and conditions.

Total Balance Mens Plus helps you to cover all major areas of male health, integrating quality ingredients but remains at unbeatable price, enabling optimum health to be an affordable commodity.

Xtend-Life’s manufacturing system guarantees all ingredients are of the freshest and best quality before processing. Because we supply direct to our customers and do frequent production runs the finished product is never older than 60 days when shipped. This is quite unique in the supplement industry.

Prior to manufacturing any sensitive raw ingredients are held in our chillers at 4 degrees Celsius to ensure full potency is maintained. After these ingredients are incorporated into the tablets they are no longer heat sensitive.

Additionally, this formula incorporates the unique enteric coated delivery system to ensure better bio-availability and 100% effective use of each ingredient. For more info on this delivery system please click here.

What does Total Balance Men’s Plus do that the other 2 versions do not?

Total Balance Men’s Plus concentrates on a man’s health requirements more specifically than Unisex, which provides an overall nutritional protective environment, and of course Women’s Plus, which concentrates on requirements from a female perspective. It contains ingredients such as Chrysin, to help prevent the conversion of testosterone into oestrogren; Beta-sitosterol, to help fight against Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and Prostatitis; and Corn Silk, to help relieve instances of Urethritis and nocturnal Enuresis as well as Prostatitis and Urinary Infection.

What difference will I feel?

Total Balance Men’s Plus is about protecting and relieving male hormonal, reproductive and other common health complaints. These systems will become stronger and less prone to disease and relief may well be experienced from current ocurrances. Prevention from reoccurance is also often accounted. Just read some of our customer comments for further confirmation of what Total Balance Men’s Plus can achieve.

Is Total Balance Mens Plus safe to use?

Yes. Total Balance Mens Plus is made of 100% natural ingredients. It contains no pharmaceutical ingredients and does not therefore require a prescription. Each ingredient has undergone vigorous clinical studies at molecular level to prove their benefit to the human body and ensure their compatibility and abilities to enhance each other’s effects.

How many bottles do I need to purchase to see a difference and how long will it take Total Balance Mens Plus to work?

To see the best and most rapid results we suggest that you follow our ‘recommended protocol’ suggestion of 6 tablets per day, which equates to 2 bottles per month.

Total Balance Mens Plus can also offer immense additional support and health improvement in combination with any other Xtend-Life product to boost the effectiveness of that product.

Are there any discounts for Bulk purchases?

Our policy is to keep our selling price at the lowest possible level to ensure customers get maximum value for money. However, we do offer a genuine customer loyalty program for those customers who order regularly. This program provides product discounts and shipping subsidies.

Can you tell me more about the ingredients in Total Balance Mens Plus?

Total Balance Mens Plus is unique because Xtend-Life’s R & D team have spent time researching the most important ingredients and their individual and compatible clinical trials to formulate the best possible results.

It is important to note that although each ingredient has it’s individual benefits, it is only when formulated together in specific quantities and ratios that it is possible to achieve worthwhile results at an optimal level. Studies have shown that many nutrients when combined synergistically can increase their effectiveness by as much as fifteen times.

Why is the Vitamin E Dosage in the Total Balance only 100 IU instead of the general recommended dosage by experts of 400IU?

Most long-term human supplementation studies show benefits at daily vitamin E intakes between 100 and 400 IU.

Because vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin it is important not to ingest high levels of it on a regular basis. The amounts of Vitamin E that we use are still within the clinically proven beneficial range. This protocol removes the risk of overdosing in this nutrient for our customers who are using multiple Xtend-Life products which also contain small amounts of Vitamin E.

We also only use the natural form of Vitamin E which is considered to have greater efficacy than the synthetic type.

Bear in mind also that in Total Balance we use a broad spectrum Tocotrienol which significantly improves the potency of Vitamin E.

Why is there so little Vitamin C in your Total Balance formula?

Vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid in a dose of over 400 mg daily (when taken orally) can do more harm than good because of its ability to generate free radicals, due to the reaction of hydrochloric acid in the stomach with the ascorbic acid. The levels contained in Total Balance are sufficient, even if you are on a less than optimal diet. The manner in which we combine this and other ingredients within the formula enables smaller doses to be much more effective than those found in a typical ‘multi’.

We have added Vitamin C to Total Balance as a co-factor, i.e. to help the body get the maximum benefits of all the other ingredients. Many other Antioxidants in Total Balance - Vitamins A & E, the Amino Acids and others - act in this way also.

If you feel you need to take high doses of vitamin C orally then it is best not use ascorbic acid, but rather the salt form of vitamin C, calcium ascorbate, also called Ester C. Ascorbic acid ‘mops up’ free radicals when taken in amounts of up to 400 mg per day. In excess of that amount, it generates free radicals. The only exception to this is when a person is diseased (for example from an inflammatory condition, or a virus such as a cold or Flu). This free radical generating effect can be avoided by using calcium ascorbate, for example, which avoids that type of reaction in the stomach.

A further alternative is intravenous vitamin C, which bypasses the stomach. Most doctors and practitioners are unaware of this as it is a bio-chemical matter rather than a medical one.

I notice that Total Balance does not include CoEnzymeQ10, why is that?

CoEnzymeQ10 does not need to be included because the ingredients in the formula stimulate your body to produce its own CoQ10. If you take the full dose of Total Balance (6 tablets per day) your body will produce at least as much CoQ10 as if you had taken a 100mg tablet of CoQ10. CoQ10 is a synthetic supplement although it is a natural substance that is produced by your body. It is very unstable and only a very small percentage of CoQ10 supplements ever get into the blood stream…example, about 5mgs of a 100mgs tablet…which is normally enough.

If various ingredients can combine to make CoQ10 can they also combine to make other perhaps dangerous substances?

Yes, they can. This is why you should never take a multi-nutrient supplement unless you are confident that it has been professionally designed and is manufactured under strict conditions. Synergy when combining ingredients is crucial, which is why formulas such as this must be prepared by a highly qualified professional team. Our research team headed by Prof. Dr A. Munem Daoud spent thousands of hours researching all the interactions of the ingredients prior to finalizing the new generation formula. There are only a handful of scientists in the world with this level of expertise.

What effect should I feel after I begin taking Total Balance?

This varies from person to person. Some people will notice a marked improvement in their energy levels within days and an increased feeling of well being. On the other hand some people may take some months before they feel any direct effects.

If I don’t feel any effects does that mean that I am not getting the benefits?

Not at all! Your cells and organs are getting the benefits even if you can’t directly feel it in the short term. Just as an example. Bilberry extract, lutein, rutin, and Zeaxanthin are nutrients that are well proven in playing a significant role in the prevention of age related Macular Degeneration. These nutrients will still be quietly working away at cellular level to provide your eyes with the protection that they need. Macular Degeneration can have a devastating effect on your eyesight as you get older! It can sometimes take 12 months to ’see’ these benefits.

Other nutrients are doing similar jobs in other parts of the body. This is going on at cellular level but you may be totally unaware of it.

Is it possible that I could feel any bad effects after I start taking Total Balance?

Yes it is. Depending upon the state of your health you may experience symptoms such as Nausea and even Headaches over the first few days. This can occur if you have high levels of toxins in your body. Total Balance helps activate your systems to help get rid of them, sometimes resulting in these mild temporary side effects. If you experience this reduce the dose rate until they pass and make sure that you drink plenty of pure water to help flush your system.

I have a problem with Depression. Is it likely that I will notice a difference?

Yes, it is very likely that you will. The neuronutrients included in the formula have been shown in multiple clinical studies to be of considerable benefit to people suffering from Depression and Stress.

Will Total Balance Mens Plus interfere with other prescription medications?

As with all supplements caution must be applied particularly if you are on medication of any sort. Total Balance contains ingredients such as gingko biloba which help thin the blood so if you are on blood thinning medication this has to be taken into account. However, we have kept the amount to within safety limits for most prescription drugs.

Nonetheless, 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. The same cautions apply to Pregnant and lactating women.

I am taking Proscar as prescribed by my GP. Is it safe to take Total Balance Mens Plus with this?

As our Total Balance Mens Plus formula is an all-in-one natural product it should be safe to take with most other pharmaceutical medications. However, as with all medications you should discuss taking this supplement with your physician. We recommend leaving a 3–4 hour gap between taking any prescription medications and taking your supplementation.

I have a problem with my Testosterone Levels, will I notice a difference?

Yes, it is very possible you will notice quite a difference. It is not uncommon for Testosterone Levels to diminish with age, with testosterone often being converted to estrogen. Total Balance Men’s Plus contains Chrysin to help combat this occurrence.

I am taking other nutritional supplements and natural medications. Is this ok?

Generally yes, but it 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. For example, high doses of Vitamin C can actually contribute to the production of free radicals. The levels that are contained in Total Balance are sufficient even if you are on a less than optimal diet. The manner in which they are combined within the formula enables the smaller doses to be much more effective than those found in a typical ‘multi’.

Vitamins and minerals are the cheapest ingredients in the formula. If they were needed we would have increased the amounts with minimal impact on the cost.

The exception to this is calcium which some women need an additional amount of. This is why we formulated a separate stand alone calcium product.

What else can I do to help myself?

To reach optimum health it is always important to ensure a generally healthy lifestyle with any supplement regime. Exercise, even moderate Exercise, has proven overall health benefits to strengthen your Immune System, heart, muscles, circulation and joints. 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 as well as your overall health.

Delivery System

Having all the potent ingredients and ensuring they interact correctly is of little use if they cannot reach the cells and organs they are destined for. To ensure that they do we utilize a delivery system, which is rare for nutritional supplements but fairly common with some expensive pharmaceutical drugs. This delivery system is called enteric coating…

This system ensures the integrity of the Total Balance ingredients (in particular the active enzymes and specialized nutrients such as L-Glutathione) as they pass through the stomach. The special acid resistance enteric coating protects all the ingredients as they pass through into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the lymphatic system and dispersed throughout the body to nourish the cells and organs.

When most conventional tablets or capsules are released in the stomach there is the possibility of epithelial damage which can cause discomfort in some people. The new Total Balance tablets avoid this problem.

The net result of this delivery system is:

  • Greater potency of most ingredients due to the elimination of acid damage.
  • The potency of some ingredients can be enhanced as much as five fold!
  • Greater convenience as they do not have to be taken with a meal.
