Xtend-Life Multi-Xtra Supplement Review
Welcome to this Xtend-Life Multi-Xtra review webpage.
This multi-vitamin product is essentially “Total Balance Lite” if you will. It was created by Xtend-Life for those who are not using or can’t afford the more complete Total Balance formula.
Notwithstanding that, it is a good substitute for Total Balance and comes with the spectrum of core vitamins and minerals that are essential for a human being.
Unlike the Total Balance formulas, it has no amino acids or immunity-stimulating extracts like aloe vera or beta glucan, and not surprisingly it has no female- or male-specific support nutrients either. It does, however, have a full complement of core vitamins, minerals, and even eye-health specific nutrients like zeaxanthin, rutin and lutein.
Two notable minerals its missing are iron and phosphorous. Unlike the Total Balance basic formula, it is also missing most notably coenzyme Q10, hesperidin, ATP, and alpha lipoic acid. Powerful herbal extracts like ginkgo biloba, ginger, grade seed extract, turmeric (one of the most powerful medicinal spices in existence) and red clover extract are missing too.
It does have some core anti-oxidant ingredients and methylation bio-agents (core components to deter aging) but it is missing the more advanced anti-glycation and anti-inflammation bio-agents as well. (Anti-glycation and anti-inflammation components are two things that contribute to aging as well.)
Overall, it has 48 active ingredients compared to 79 for the basic Total Balance Unisex product. The Total Balance Unisex Premium product has 94 by comparison as well.
Those 48 also provide 36,720 mgs of “bio-actives” per month as well.
This is a bare-bones, core vitamin product but is inferior to the Total Balance basic product. Lastly, this product doesn’t have the enteric coating to protect some of the more sensitive ingredients like SAM-e from the stomach acids until it passes into the upper intestine or duodenum for assimilation into the blood stream. It doesn’t have SAM-e, though, so that is one of the reasons why it probably wasn’t included.
How does this Multi-Xtra vitamin product help you? What are its benefits?
This product will give one core, basic vitamins and minerals the body needs. It thus helps with core health requirements. It does give a lot of value for the buck even though it’s not as robust a formula as even the basic Total Balance Unisex formula.
It also is made with superior ingredients compared to other multi-vitamins on the market, Xtend-Life says. All ingredients are pharmaceutical-grade quality ingredients that are tested in third-party, independent cGMP-compliant (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facilities like Alkemists Laboratories, which is one of the laboratories Xtend-Life actually uses.
The cGMP-compliant certification is quite stellar as it ensures the highest purity and quality possible. Each batch of ingredients are certified with a Certificate of Analysis (COA) that confirms the potency and purity of each batch of raw ingredients.
Plus, Xtend-Life utilizes state-of-the-art pharmaceutical blending instead of the traditional paddle/ribbon blender-type mixers most other vitamin manufacturers use.
The end result is the most bang for the buck on the market, even if it is a basic formula, according to Xtend-Life. I personally use the Total Balance Men’s Premium product so I’ve never used this particular supplement, but the core vitamins and minerals are the same.
Consumer Reviews & Testimonials — What Others Are Saying
The product is well received but there are not a lot of testimonials on it. It could be as it’s a relatively new product. There is only one review on it at Xtend-Life’s website.
How Much Does It Cost?
Xtend-Life Multi-Xtra is only $18.95 for 60 tablets.
Does It Come With a Guarantee?
Yes, all Xtend-Life products come with a one-year guarantee. If not satisfied, send it back and get either a refund or a product replacement.
Are There Any Customer Complaints About The Product?
No self-respecting review of Multi-Xtra would be without any information as to its negatives. The biggest negative is its lack of nutrients. This is a bare-bones version of the Total Balance product. It was designed for those on a real budget.
It’s not a great product but it’s a usable one.
Where Can I Get More Information?

I hope this review has been useful to you.
