Xtend-Life Neuro-Natural Serenity Review
Welcome to this Xtend-Life Neuro-Natural Serenity review page.
Literally, millions suffer from depression and not surprisingly pharmaceutical drugs like Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Luvox, and Paxil have grown in popularity.
But there’s a dark side.
Pharmaceutical drugs actually have terrible side effects.
Some of these side effects associated with the aforementioned drugs include nausea, diarrhea, sexual dysfunction, loss of appetite, nervousness, insomnia, dry mouth, anxiety, agitation, physical weakness fatigue, and headaches.
In addition, over 44,000 adverse reports have been filed with the FDA on Prozac alone — and that was up to 2005 and doesn’t include 2005 to 2011. One report about Prozac says:
“Out of those reports there are about 2,500 deaths with the large majority of them linked to suicide or violence. The suicide statistics relating to women [taking Prozac] are shocking.”
Eli Lilly’s Prozac was the first of the serotonergic antidepressants to hit the market and since its launch, it has been making on average $7 million a day! Due to these many reports and for other reasons, Eli Lilly has been sued for Prozac-related deaths in many American state and in federal courts.
It is because of side effects like those in Prozac and Zoloft that natural antidepressants have grown in popularity. Needless to say, the need for natural antidepressants is more pronounced than ever.
So, can one take a natural antidepressant without the side effects? Are there legitimate alternatives to these side-effect riddled drugs? Xtend-Life says yes.
They assert that their Neuro-Natural Serenity product is an alternative to Prozac and Zoloft at a fraction of the cost.
Are They Right?
My personal experience is that they, Xtend-Life, has outstanding products and customer service.
When I first came upon Xtend-Life in May 2004, what first struck me is that they produce pure-grade quality supplements. This is no small feat, I learned. All their products are made in Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant facilities.
This means that their raw product material, manufacturing processes, and product diagnostics are equivalent to the highest processing/creation standards.
Natural Serenity, as well as all Xtend-Life’s products, are made with standards that actually meet the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules for some elements. They create products according to FDA rules and they use some test methods that are in the British Pharmacopeia, which are isolated to testing some elements like the enteric coating.
For a supplement company, this is really rare.
The ingredients of this supplement seem to be quite innovative. Xtend-Life combines the best of traditional nutrients with herbal extracts. This is a combining of the best of allopathic (western medicine) and herbal medicine (a key component of naturopathic medicine).
That may be one of their secrets as to Neuro-Natural Serenity’s success in mitigating severe depression.
Some of the herbal extracts that it has are dandelion extract, valerian extract, ginkgo biloba, grape seed extract, Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus). Ginkgo biloba and ginseng are especially interesting. Ginkgo biloba is actually prescribed by traditional doctors in Germany and Austria as an anti-depressant.
Another powerful natural antidepressant component that Neuro-Natural Serenity has is SAM-e. Short for S-Adenosylmethionine, SAM-e is a potent natural antidepressant.
SAM-e (pronounced as “Sammy”) is a naturally occurring compound that helps to regulate brain neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.
SAM-e is critical in the manufacture of two important compounds found in the brain — phosphatidylserine and neurotransmitters. As SAMe assists neurotransmitters in binding to receptor sites, there is a consequent increase of serotonin and dopamine activity.
These, in turn, strongly influence your moods. There is convincing clinical data that verifies the claim that SAM-e is an effective antidepressant.
According to recent data, 70% of those taking SAM-e receive the antidepressant benefit — the same degree prescribed antidepressants such as Prozac give. However, it does not give the same side effects. Plus, SAM-e works faster than prescription antidepressants.
Xtend-Life asserts that those who suffer from anxiety or panic attacks if they will take Neuro-Natural Serenity, they, “Will notice quite a difference. Anxiety and panic attacks are part of the stress that are associated with depressive states and neurological disorders.”
Plus, they say, that the Neuro-Natural Serenity will assist in the “rebalancing the neurotransmitters in your brain and nervous system in a completely natural and relaxed way” without side effects.
Consumer Reviews & Testimonials — What Others Are Saying
The Xtend-Life line of supplement products are very well received and Neuro-Natural Serenity is no exception judging from the goodly number of testimonials on their website. (You can read more here.)
Here are just a few taken from their site:
I love you products and your customer service is one of the best ever. I have turned my loved one onto your products as well. He was extremely chemically imbalanced and it was having a major effect on his everyday performance. Now after 2 months of using, serenity, male rejuvenator, omegas and your multi-vitamin nutriments….he is a completely new and grounded and energized beautiful being. For me, I can feel that my body functions so much better with your supplements. It’s important for me to optimum health….so thank you for you. I wish you much abundance.

I suffer from anxiety for passed few months, and I already tried Xanax, also my doc proposed me antidepressants. From natural remedies I already tried SJW, with not much of the effects; and then I found your product. After little bit over week, I started to feel better.

Any Customer Complaints?
No review of Neuro-Natural Serenity would be complete with discussing the negatives. There are no specific product complaints that I could uncover. The Neuro-Natural Serenity product appears to be a well-constructed, highly bio-available supplement.
One complaint, though, is its price. The $39.95 for a two-week supply seems high to many. (One bottle will last only two weeks if one takes the recommended six tablets per day.)
When I brought this up to a Xtend-Life employee, they emphasized to me that all of Xtend-Life’s products are literally pharmaceutical-grade quality.
In fact, all of their products are made in GMP-compliant facilities per pharmaceutical drug standards, they asserted. (I knew this.) Their supplement products also not only meet FDA standards but actually surpass them, I was told.
Xtend Life seems very proud of the fact that their supplements actually meet British Pharmacopoeia standards.
Neuro-Natural Serenity, and all Xtend-Life products, could be more expensive their people have told me. The company has deliberately cut out the middleman or wholesalers as they sell direct. In their early days, they toyed with utilizing a multi-level marketing distribution model but gave it up. (I think that was wise.)
So, with the advent of the Internet, and thus a potential worldwide market, they opted for the current marketing and distribution model. As someone in IT, marketing and PR, I think their business decisions were sound ones.
In an email exchange in 2006 with the chairman and founder of Xtend-Life Warren Matthews, he emphasized to me how small their profit margin was. Since then, the company has raised their prices since then but not dramatically so.
Given the quality of the core ingredients, their cGMP-compliant facilities, their innovative manufacturing processes, their in-house research, the products could be a lot higher priced, I believe based on my research.
Pharmaceutical drugs are a lot more expensive and are riddled with side effects. Xtend-Life’s products are pharmaceutical grade quality but they don’t have side effects and actually seem to help resolve significant health issues.
That’s a big distinction.
Does It Come With a Guarantee?
Yes. Xtend-Life gives a one-year satisfaction guarantee. If you’re unhappy with the product in anyway, they offer either a refund or a replacement bottle.
How Much Does It Cost?
A bottle of Xtend-Life Neuro-Natural Serenity sells for $42.50. (You also get an email confirmation regarding your order when you order.) In each bottle are 90 enteric-coated tablets.
You can buy it here.
Does It Come With Free Shipping?
If your order is $60 USD or over, Xtend-Life will ship your product(s) anywhere in the world for free. For orders less than $60, they charge a flat $6.50 shipping fee no matter where you live in the world.
In my experience, you get your product in five to six days even though they say expect eight to 10 days or so for delivery.
Where Can I Buy Neuro-Natural Serenity?
Xtend-Life sells all their products directly via the Internet; they are not available in stores. You can buy Neuro-Natural Serenity here.
I hope this review of the Xtend-Life’s Neuro-Natural Serenity product has been helpful to you.
Yours in health,
