If You Want Maximum Effect with The Supplements You Take Right Now, You Need to Take The Right Amounts
It is literally necessary now to supplement our diet with high-quality multivitamins (Matthews, Malnourished…with Fruit and Veggies!, 2009).
Just eating an abundance of plant-based foods is not enough anymore, and that is why supplementation is so critical today.
A high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade multivitamin (and other supplements and superfoods) are not just needed for basic health maintenance but for actual health improvement as well.
In addition, the environment around us contributes to our health — or lack thereof.
As the webmaster of this site, and as one keenly interested in my health as you are, I want to take the best supplements I can find that optimize my health.
That is the purpose of this article — optimizing one’s health. Many buy supplements to augment their health — and that is necessary, but is there an optimal protocol or amounts to take?
There is.
Buying one bottle of a supplement is certainly helpful, but is not ideal. |
I understand that some supplements, especially pharmaceutical-grade quality supplements, can be expensive. But if you (and I) want optimal effect, if you want to maximize your health, to ward off disease, the following recommended supplements can dramatically improve the health depending on the targeted health issue or goal.
To that end, below are Xtend-Life’s recommended supplement protocols for various ailments as well as for optimal health.
Douglas Laboratories recommends essentially their Ultra Preventive X but one argument with their other supplements like their vitamin D product, which is the one I use.
Is It Possible to Really Live to 120 Years of Age With Good Health?
According to Warren Matthews, the chainman and co-founder of Xtend-Life, our bodies were designed to survive at least 120 years (Xtend-Life, Anti-Aging, 2013). You can also read his response to a question from a customer as to why he chose 120 years as his goal. (Matthews, Living Until 114!, 2009).
Dr. Alexis Carrel of The Rockefeller Institute says, “There is no biological reason why human beings should not reach the age of 150” (Bragg & Bragg, The Bragg Healthy Lifestyle Vital Living to 120!, p. 1).
That said, scientists, both allopathic and naturopathic, assert that healthy living to 120 is possible.
I personally am most interested in the anti-aging protocol, but you may be interested in better sexual prowess, heart disease prevention (the number one killer in the U.S. and Great Britain), eyesight, bone and joint health, arthritis prevention, brain health, disease prevention, etc.
One Last Thing…
One last thing before we go to the protocols. The monthly cost of the Total Balance multivitamin will depend upon whether one takes the unisex version, or the men’s version, or the women’s version — and whether or not the version taken is the premium version. So, the cost for that supplement will vary.
It is also noteworthy to mention the shipping cost. Xtend-Life offers free shipping for orders equaling $60 or more to anywhere in the world. So, the shipping cost is not factored in as it’s irrelevant.
Lastly, it is my belief that you can excise or subtract the Kiwi-Klenz product recommendation from the various protocols. I’ve included them to be comprehensive and accurate.
It’s not that Kiwi-Klenz is a bad product — it isn’t. I’m just one of those looking to always save money when I can. It can help, but I don’t believe it’s necessary.
Okay, let’s go over the recommended supplement protocol options now.
Anti-Aging & Optimal Health
Option 1:
Xtend-Life believes the following supplement protocol is the minimum you should be taking. I think, quite honestly, that you can eliminate taking Kiwi-Klenz and even the fish oil supplement Omega 3 DHA product and substitute cayenne pepper (for more info on cayenne and its incredible health benefits, go to CayennePepper.info). I personally think option 3 is the best option sans the Kiwi-Klenz — if you can afford it. Along with cayenne supplementation, it is a total powerhouse.
If, though, budget it paramount, I would use cayenne, Total Balance Premium (whether the male- or female-specific one. If you can afford it, option 3 sans the Kiwi-Klenz is optimal — and really noticeable in its therapeutic effects.
Product | Quantity per Day | You Need |
Monthly Cost |
Total Balance | 4-7 tablets | 1-2 bottles per month | $45 to $52 |
Total Monthly Cost: $90 to $104 |
Option 2:
The company believes this is the maximum, most effective protocol for anti-aging.
Product | Quantity per Day | You Need |
Monthly Cost |
Kiwi-Klenz | 1-2 caps | 1/2-1 bottles per month | $35.50 |

Option 3:
This option although more costly will give an extra boost to your brain and nervous system.

Arthritis
Option 1:
Here is what the company says, “If your arthritic symptoms are mild such as sore knuckles, general stiffness and possible inflammation you may get the pain relief results you are looking for just from our GLM, Omega 3 DHA fish oil and ideally Kiwi-Klenz (formerly Digesten-K). This is your lowest cost option. For even better results you can combine this product with any of the versions of Total Balance.”
With both options, I would add cayenne and turmeric. Both are inexpensive as well.
Product | Quantity Per Day | You Need |

Kiwi-Klenz | 1-2 caps | 1/2-1 bottles per month | $35.50 |

Option 2:
Xtend-Life says that if you’re pain and arthritis symptoms are severe, then your best possible solution would be to try our Xtend-Life Not Just Joints in conjunction with the above option 1.” They assert that their products are, “very potent natural formula and uses the latest in scientific and technological breakthroughs to provide pain relief and also help correct the underlying causes of discomfort.”

Total Monthly Cost: $190.45 to $260.40 |
Bone & Joint Problems
Option 1: Prevention and Maintenance
Here is what Xtend-Life says in their product information copy, “Xtend-Life has an excellent supplement formula to help build strong bones and joints called Bone-Support. If you have already been diagnosed with Osteoporosis then this is a good option for you as it has a generous amount of calcium present, plus all the key factors needed for calcium uptake by your bones. However, if you are like most people and don’t have an immediate problem and want to do everything you can to avoid a future one, then you would be best advised to take one of the Xtend-Life Total Balance supplement formula’s along with the Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil Esters. These products will help your body build new bone and prevent the loss of calcium as well as reducing inflammation. They will also help reduce homocysteine levels because of the methylating nutrients they contain.”

Option 2: For maximum benefits when indications of Osteoporosis is already present.
With this option, Xtend-Life believes it’s possible that Bone-Protec may only need to be taken for six months and then could be discontinued and the benefits maintained with just Total Balance and Omega 3 DHA.

Total Monthly Cost: $91.95 to $101.95 |
Option 3:
Xtend-Life says, “If at this time you feel that you have an excellent diet or, you are happy with other supplementation you are having then Xtend-Life Bone-Protec can be taken as a stand alone joint supplement. It is MUCH more effective than the ‘normal’ calcium supplements on the market because all the key co-factors are included…even the very expensive but effective VItamin K2, as opposed to the ineffective synthetic Vitamin K1.”

Option 2:
The company says to maximize heart health, the additional, highly assimilable nutrients in Total Balance (their multivitamin) will help to complement all the other supplements. Again, though, I recommend using cayenne pepper as well. Cayenne is awesome for the cardiovascular system and the human heart. There have been over 3,000 studies conducted on the efficacy of cayenne and its active ingredient capsaicin. Cayenne is inexpensive, too.
