Review of Xtend-Life Kiwi-Klenz
Welcome to this review of Xtend-Life Kiwi-Klenz webpage.
This product was launched in June 2011 so it’s the newest product offering for the New Zealand-based vitamin and supplement manufacturer. If the name Kiwi-Klenz throws you, it may be as the product was renamed from Digesten-K to Kiwi-Klenz due to a problem with the Asian market.
Kiwi-Klenz is an interesting product. Xtend-Life says, “This is truly one dietary supplement everybody of every age should be taking.”
I would’ve thought they’d have said one of their fish oil supplement line or their flagship multi-vitamin product Total Balance would be the supplement product everyone should take. Nevertheless, as digestion and full assimilation of nutrients is so important to health, one can see their point.
Enough preamble, let’s get to the review.
Xtend-Life conducted its own survey using Likert-scale questions. Those who used it the longest expressed the greatest product satisfaction, according to Xtend Life.
As the company does with all their products, significant research seems to have been conducted before and after the product was launched.
As with all their products, Xtend-Life Kiwi-Klenz is made with a number of product quality assurance elements including pharmaceutical-grade quality ingredients that are tested in independent, third-party, cGMP-compliant facilities like Alkemists Laboratories in Costa Mesa, California, USA.
Moreover, a Certificate of Analysis (COA) is created and filed for each batch. This confirms the potency and purity of each batch’s ingredients.
And, it’s created in Xtend-Life’s own cGMP-compliant facilities, which is the highest standard possible for quality and purity.
What Are The Benefits of This Product?
In a very literal way, if the stomach is the processing center of the human body, and the digestive system coupled with the intestinal tract is the sewage system. Norman W. Walker, D.Sc., Ph.D. (1979) in his book, Colon Health: The Key to Vibrant Health, confirms this saying, “In simple words, the colon is the body’s sewage system” (p. 9).
In order for the body to function properly, as well as the digestive and intestinal tract, it must be taken care of on a daily basis. Thus, Xtend-Life says, their reserach and creation of this product.
Kiwi-Klenz is a “pre-biotic” and as such helps to inhibit intestinal bad bacterial growth. This means everything you eat is digested better and better assimilated, which gives you more energy for less food eaten.
According to Xtend-Life, that’s not all it can do. The company says it, “includes the kiwifruit enzymes, phenolics and soluble fibre which are all critical components for good intestinal health.”
Essentially, Xtend-Life Kiwi-Klenz works with four elements respecting digestion and assimilation health. It improves the digestion of proteins through the action of enzymes. This means better assimilation.
Secondly, it encourages the growth of good bacteria through natural prebiotics while keeping them from overgrowing. This means less stomach upset and more of your food stuffs being broken down properly. It also has some soluble fiber, which is vital to health intestinal and colon function, but I don’t think it’s as robust as psyllium seed or husks. It can certainly help, though.
While it’s not an anti-virus or anti-viral supplement, it will, Xtend-Life asserts, inhibit the growth of bad bacteria or pathegons.
The end result for you is that it restores, assists, and facilitates optimal assimilation and food disposal. In essence, your entire digestive system, from the “processing plant” of the stomach to the assimilation work of the intestines and the performance of your colon, will all perform more optimally; your overall health will be improved as your “processing center” and “sewage system” will be performing more optimally.
Xtend-Life also says that when you add their other health-regime supplements to Kiwi-Klenz it will allow them to perform better with greater assimilation. In other words, the therapeutic health benefits of the various supplemetns you may use will be greatly enhanced.
Xtend-Life Kiwi-Klenz Ingredients
The ingredients of Kiwi-Klenz are actually kiwi-fruit extract and kiwi-fruit powder. It’s encapsulated in vegetarian capsules with two minor fillers.
As mentioned, these ingredients are certified pharmaceutical-grade pure by independent, third-party laboratories such as Alkemists Laboratories in Costa Mesa, California, USA, and Cawthorn Institute and AsureQuality in New Zealand.
How Much Does It Cost?
One bottle of Kiwi-Klenz has 60 capsules and sells for $35.50 USD. This is a month’s supply. For orders totalling $60 USD, you get free shipping anywhere in the world. For orders that don’t hit the $60 threshold, Xtend-Life charges a flat $6.50 fee for worldwide shipping.
Does It Include a Guarantee?
No self-respecting review would be complete without talking about the product’s guarantee. Xtend-Life offers a full one-year, product-satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy with it, you can get either a refund or a product replacement.
Consumer Reviews — What Others Are Saying
While Kiwi-Klenz is still a new product, it has received some excellent customer feedback. Here are a few testimonials taken from Xtend-Life’s website.
Thought I would give some feedback on Kiwi-Klenz. I have been using it for over a month now and must admit it is probably the only supplement I have taken where the effects of taking it are so noticeable. After a week my digestion had improved 100 fold, but the most amazing effect was my sugar cravings disappeared and appetite reduced markedly. I find when I eat, I get full quicker. I recommended it to a workmate who reported the same effect to me. Possibly the best weight loss supplement out there! I never send reviews in, but had to for this, as everything it says it will do, it has. And it is affordable. Thanks for a great supplement!

I started taking one capsule of Digesten-K (now called Kiwi-Klenz) and found things were not moving as I had hoped, but after increasing to two capsules thing really started moving ! After a nasty Sunday, running to the toilet all day things settled down and I felt great. After having a very stressful year I had let myself get very run down, not eating or exercising as I should. My system was so clogged up with rubbish I needed help. I feel this product did help me. I am exercising again and do not eat as much as before I started taking Digesten-K, I also find I am eating healthy food. I have cut down to one capsule a day, but seriously considering going back to two. I think my skin is better and I am not heading to the toilet more than twice a day.

Are There Any Customer Complaints?
A good review of Kiwi-Klenz must also must discuss the negative. In a survey conducted internally, which I’ve previously referenced, 7.8% either found the product dissatisfactory or very dissatisfactory.
The remaining 92.2% is dispersed as follows: 33.5% found it neutral, 35% were satisfied and 23.7% were very satisfied.
Satisfaction with Kiwi-Klenz was 3.7 out of 5 the longer it was used. These survey findings were compiled both prior to its launch in June 2011 and up until early November 2011.
It seems to be a good product overall and could still be “getting its legs.”
Based on the statistics provided to me by Xtend-Life itself, it is actually one of their better selling products. It is currently their fifth most popular supplement product sold as of this writing.
If you’re interested in my viewpoint, I started using it in late November 2011 and I’ve been pleased with it. It does seem to do just what the company says.
One thing I’ve noticed is that it does help produce a good bowel movement the next morning.
It’s certainly easier to take than some of the other similiar products on the market.
Where Can I Get More Information?
Xtend-Life only sells their products directly from their website. You can buy it here.
I hope this review has been useful to you.
Yours in health,
