Xtend-Life’s signature “Total Balance” multivitamins supplement is a mixture of up to 99 nutrients designed to improve health and increase the length of the user’s life .

Xtend-Life Company Background



Xtend-Life Natural Products (Intl) Ltd was founded by New Zealand native Warren Matthews and his son Lance Matthews. Before launching Xtend-Life, the father and son conducted extensive research on supplements, visiting supplement production plants and observing how supplements were created. They were appalled at the lack of quality and slipshod production methods they encountered. They had hoped to find a good product that they could sell, but came to believe that they would have to create their own supplement in order to feel confident in the product’s effectiveness.

Random selection of some unsolicited women comments which relate to the Xtend Life Total Balance multivitamins – Linda, USA“When I was away on holiday I saw many friends and family whom I had not seen in a year. I received almost universal praise for my hair. My hair is darker than it has been in years (I have brown/black hair), and I have regained deep red highlights that had gone missing. I wasn’t going grey exactly, I was just…fading. Well, your Total Balance Women’s Plus completely reversed that trend. I had noticed improvements in my sleep, my skin condition and my digestion, but the change to my hair was so gradual that I hadn’t noticed until others did. I’m so pleased that I’m growing my hair out! Thank you for fabulous products and customer service.”


In building their own company, the duo made the decision that the supplements should be developed and manufactured in-house rather than contracted out, which is a common practice in the industry. This would allow them to control the type and quality of ingredients used as well as the manufacturing processes employed in creating the supplements.

Total Balance – Flagship Product

The father and son pair hired a biochemist to develop supplements that the company would make and sell and they developed a manufacturing facility where the products would be made and tested before being sold to consumers. In the year 2000, Xtend-Life launched its first product, the “Total Balance” multivitamin. “Total Balance” attracted a group of loyal customers from over 45 countries, and over the years the company has increased the number and type of products it offers. 9 years after it was launched, Total Balance now comes in 7 versions targeted at men, >women and even children.


Random selection of some unsolicited men comments which relate to the Xtend Life Total Balance multivitamins – Harry G, USA “This is just a brief note to tell you not only that I appreciate the new formula Xtend-Life Total Balance Men’s Plus, but to tell you what a remarkable company I believe you are. In the first instance your new formula actually resulted in the necessity of fewer separate products, which resulted in a significant monthly saving for me. Yet you continue to research and improve the product. In addition, you told me something that no one has ever told me with regard to supplements – that I should take occasional breaks in product use (at an additional cost to the company). Your integrity and honesty I find unparalleled, and I wish to express my appreciation.”

Industry First Delivery System

What many supplement companies have failed to mention is that most of the multivitamins in the market today are ineffective, because stomach acid renders it inactive. Each Total Balance capsule is coated by what is called an enteric coating that allows it to pass through the stomach and into the small intestine, where it can be broken down and enter the bloodstream where it goes to work. An enteric coating is rarely included, because it costs more.

Random selection of some unsolicited parents comments which relate to the Xtend Life Total Balance multivitamin for children – Christina, US, USA “I started my son on Total Balance Unisex and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil a couple of months ago. He’s 11 and has had a very hard time with his focus and attention span through all of his school years so far. One doctor and some teachers thought he had ADHD and prescribed medication. I gave it to him briefly, but he complained of feeling weird on the medication and he lost his appetite. I also noticed he seemed to lose his normal spirit and in some ways seemed almost depressed. I took him off all medications. I really noticed an improvement with the Total Balance and Omega 3/DHA combination. This marking period he made the honor roll which he has never once done through all his school years! He’s in 5th grade now and I want to keep his confidence up for the years ahead when he’ll be going to high school. I’m assuming it’s the supplements that are helping him. It’s been a very positive experience for him and me. Your supplements have helped me too! Thanks”


In an industry that is rife with companies that make wild claims just to make a few bucks, do not use the ingredients listed or use poor quality ingredients with inadequate potency levels, Xtend-Life has built a reputation for high quality products among users of vitamin supplements. While the cost of Xtend-Life’s products tends to be higher than competitors’, the quality and extra effort put into turning out top-notch products makes them worth the price. The bottom line is that most supplement companies do not use the correct form of a nutrient (natural) and they do not use the correct delivery system, which, in most cases, is a tablet with an enteric coating.

The Xtend-Life products have several attributes that we find attractive. Ask any experienced dietary supplement users, they will like the fact that the company followed strict pharmaceutical GMP compliance manufacturing guidelines. We are obviously very impressed by the certificate of analysis (COA) for each batch of product verifying the potency of ingredients.

The company’s use of only standardized herbal extracts in the Total Balance and other products was another selling point, since these are believed by many to be more effective and potent than non-standardized extracts. The 6 months money back guarantee was another popular quality. And if you are new to the supplements scene, subscribe to the company’s free email newsletters, which are sent out periodically written by the Chairman himself! In fact, if you are still not convinced that this is in fact one of the best multivitamins around, write to him directly for a response. We know you would not be disappointed. Personally, we have been consuming supplements from Xtend Life for almost 3 years now and we are confident you will experience a new surge of energy and well being within the first month of consumption.

Xtend-Life’s signature “Total Balance” multivitamins supplement is a mixture of up to 99 nutrients designed to improve health and increase the length of the user’s life.
