On December 10, 2012 the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the New Zealand Government signed an agreement in which the FDA recognizes New Zealand’s food safety systems to be comparable to its own.

About Xtend Life

In 1998 Warren Matthews (a New Zealander) then 51 years of age reached a turning point in his life due to a number of ‘interesting’ experiences. If you would like to know more about these please go to Warren’s blog for more background. Also as many people do when they reach 50 years of age he started becoming more aware of the generally poor health of others around him, both young and old. Friends would occasionally contract diseases, some terminal such as cancer, or die suddenly from heart attacks. Early in 2000 Xtend-Life Natural Products (Intl) Ltd went ‘live’ and made available to the public its first generation of Total Balance a highly sophisticated multi nutrient supplement (as opposed to a multi vitamin/mineral supplement). Dr Munem now directs the Xtend-Life Research and Development Department and has become a close friend of Warren’s. Since the first products were released in 2000 Xtend-Life has enjoyed a steady growth thanks to an ever increasing foundation of loyal customers who purchase products every month and refer their friends and family to Xtend-Life as well.
