Xtend Life Reviews: A Review of The Xtend-Life Omega 3/QH Ultra Fish Oil Supplement
Welcome to this review of Xtend-Life’s Omega 3/QH Ultra supplement product page.
As you may know, such supplements are among the most widely used “health food” products the world over.
Bolstered by many clinical studies conducted by many researchers around the globe, a quality fish oil supplement may be one of the very best things you and I can do for our health.
Many health enthusiasts, myself included, believe that good fish oil vitamin supplement products, when properly made, are a kind of superfood.
The health benefits are among the most impressive of any superfood in the world including goji berries, ginseng, cayenne pepper, ginger, turmeric and bee pollen.
It’s also probably the most well researched supplement in the world as well, which can not be said about most superfoods.
And, they are very affordable as well. In fact, they may be the cheapest superfood or supplement around.
If you haven’t added fish oil supplementation to your health regime, you might want to think about it.
What Are The Clinically Documented Health Benefits of Fish Oil?
Some of its purported health benefits are that it:
May help prevent cancer, including prostate cancer. The chances of you and I getting cancer have never been higher.
Improve your cardiovascular health. This one health benefit alone merits taking a second look at fish oil. It can prevent clotting (thrombosis), reduce heart irregularities, lower blood triglycerides (blood fats), lower blood pressure, and improve circulation.
May help mitigate diabetes.
May help provide female-specific health benefits.
May help minimize Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
May help the human immune system. The key to anti-aging and fighting off disease is powerful antioxidant activity and strengthening the immune system. Fish oil does that.
May help skin health.
May improve your eyesight or visual acuity. If you are approaching your early 40s, or even if you’re not, fish oil can help improve eye health.
Is The Xtend-Life 3/QH Ultra a Quality Product?
Let’s now get into specifics regarding the Xend-Life 3/QH Ultra fish oil product.
If you look at the graph directly below comparing the fish oil-purity standards, you can plainly see that Xtend-Life asserts that their three fish oil version all exceed standards laid down by various international organizations.
In addition, Xtend-Life says for each batch of their sourced fish oil from which their fish oil vitamin or supplements products are made, a Certificate of Analysis (COA) is put on file, confirming the potency of each batch.
Other ingredients such as lycopene, astaxanthin, and ubiquinol are verified by third-party laboratories for their nutritional purity, thus meeting the standard of high-grade quality ingredients as they are tested in cGMP-compliant facilities.
My research also uncovered that fact that before Xtend-Life’s fish oil is added to the other ingredients, it’s molecularly distilled, which purifies it, thus removing any contaminants.
This is expensive and some fish oil nutritional supplement manufacturers don’t do this.
The fish oil and the related ingredients are then formulated into soft gels and bottled in Xtend-Life’s own cGMP-compliant facilities.
From all appearances, Xtend-Life is very serious about the purity and quality of their supplement products. In the interest of full honesty, this is what led me to them as I am very particular about the supplements I use.
What Are Its Ingredients?
Continuing, Xtend-Life’s fish supplements is made from tuna and New Zealand hoki fish. The hoki is indigenous to the ocean waters of New Zealand, which waters are considered to be among the most pristine in the world, according to Xtend-Life.
The specific ingredients in the supplement, though, are:
Fish oil from tuna and the hoki fish
Omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 6 fatty acids
Omega 9 fatty acids
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid)
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid)
DPA (Docosapentaenoic acid)
Ubiquinol (Kaneka QH™)
The last three ingredients are what distinguish it from their basic Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil and Omega 3 DHA Fish Oil Premium products.
Lycopene offers many documented health benefits including helping to prevent atherosclerosis, cancer, prostate cancer and asthma while astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant.
Ubiqunol meanwhile has extensive scientific evidence showing its effectiveness in replenishing natural energy levels within the body.
It also promotes overall cardiovascular health. Many clinical studies also confirm it combates degenerative diseases that result from decreased levels of ubiquinol.
Some of the age-related diseases it helps to mitigate are cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, cancer, chronic fatigue and diabetes.
Xtend-Life says that is not a comprehensive list.

How Much Does It Cost?
One bottle of Xtend-Life Omega 3/QH Ultra sells for $27.95. You can buy Xtend Life fish oil here. In each bottle are 60 soft gels along with a dessicant to remove residual moisture.
Does It Include a Guarantee?
All Xtend-Life supplements come with a one-year product guarantee. If you are not happy with the product, you can get either a full refund or a product replacement.
This is one of the better guarantees I’ve ever seen and it’s from a supplement company, to be honest. I asked them why it is so long and they told me they know how well made their products are made and the rigorous quality that goes into their creation, thus they feel comfortable in offering such a guarantee.
Any Customer Complaints?
This review of the Xtend-Life Omega 3/QH Ultra product wouldn’t be complete without talking about its negatives. The fish oil product segment of Xtend-Life’s business is very popular. I dare say it outsells their flagship Total Balance line due to its cheap cost. Thus, there are really not any complaints about it that I can find. Even in their forum, people seem pretty happy.
As a user of it, though, I can tell you that in the past after taking the fish oil, I would get that hated “fish burp.” Not that it was really unpleasant as it only lasted literally about three seconds, but it was unwanted nonetheless.
That used to be the #1 complaint Xtend-Life received about their Omega 3 fish oil products, but no more. Their updated versions seem to have taken care of that. When I bought my first bottle of the new version, I waited for the characteristic fish burp, but it never came. So, I think they’ve almost totally resolved that.
The burp still comes, though, but not multiple times anymore and the slight burp taste literally lasts only about two seconds. This version is definitely better than the previous version.
Xtend-Life Omega 3/QH Ultra also contains small amounts of highly refined soy tocopherols so if you’re allergic to soy, be aware of that. Xtend-Life believes you will be fine, though. Still, if you buy it, you might want to ask them about it or your doctor or both just to be safe.
What about those with an allergy to shellfish? Xtend-Life says, “So long as you can eat fish you will not have any problems.”
For the record, it doesn’t have any gluten, dairy, peanut or shellfish byproducts in it.
