My doctor wanted to put me on statins after he reviewed my blood test results. I am 68, and normally eat a well-balance healthy diet relatively low in unhealthy fat. The doctor gave me some dietary restrictions to improve my situation. After 3 months on the more restrictive diet, my blood test cholesterol levels were even worse than the previous test results. My doctor told me it was time to take statin medication, and he was upset that wanted another chance, several months more, to improve my blood test results. Despite my 68 years I do a lot of competitive sports, especially triathlons and foot races. I was afraid that the negative side effects of statins would end my competitive career since I have heard so many horror stories from friends that have taken statins. I did researched, in the internet, for methods that could safely reduce my bad cholesterol numbers without negative side effects. I started to take 2 large spoonfuls of ground flaxseed on my cereal, one cholesterol lowering yogurt with vegetable stanols added to it (2 grams), and 3 Omega fish oil capsules a day. In 3 1/2 months I significantly lowered my cholesterol number as follows:
Lowered my LDL (bad cholesterol) from 163 to 128
Increased my HDL (good cholesterol) from 54 to 86
Lowered my trigliserats from 75 to 56
This was all done before being aware of your company or products. However, I had one serious side effect from taking the fish oil products. I had serious bad gas problems. Then I discovered your company. I was impressed with your emphasis on freshness and your claim of 2 1/2 times more anti inflammatory levels. I ordered 4 bottles of your Omega 3 fish oil. As soon as I started taking your product, the severe gas problem went away completely. I attribute this to the freshness and purity of you products.

"....I have been using your Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil for a few months now and my doctor was astounded by the improvement in my cholesterol level. His comment was "I don't know what you've changed, but don't stop!" He is going to look into your products for his own use now. Thanks for a great product."
I am pleased with the results of taking Omega 3. I noticed arthritis relief by the end of the first week.

i was really pleased with the help and information that you gave me some months ago with regards to my bipolar/depression/pregnancy conundrum and fish oils.
(i have recommended your company to my best friend who is suffering some possible depression also)
i have been amazed at the difference the fish oils dosage you recommended made to my life, so would like to thank you dearly for leaving me a hugely happier person who has gained so much more true enjoyment out of life! it obviously means the world to me. it has also made a huge difference to my boyfriend and our life together for me to be much happier and coping with a small boy, a pregnancy, bipolar 2 and alot of house renovations and building work in our home without batting an eyelid!"...........
It's good that people keep challenging you, but it's more than obvious that your product are the best in the market place. Before finding you up in the Internet I was almost giving up looking for quality fish oils, the reason being the fact that I didn't trust most manufacturers, because my body would tell me that most fish oils I tried were rubbish. Yours made such a great difference, both for my husband and me.
We should be grateful for people like you that is out there in business not only for profits but to help people's health.
I would be very angry indeed if I found out that a fish oil I was taking had grape seed oil in it.
I've been taking your fish oil for over 3 years now (along with Total Balance) so plan to have another blood test soon to compare to the results 3 years back. But overall I feel much better (my energy levels were not great before) so it's more out of interest. I think it's the fish oil that has made the biggest difference but can never be sure.
Congratulations Warren on this new development. I have recently travelled across from Sydney and had your head office down on my list of visits, but time has just got away!
I am placing my next order online, and I am pleased to hear that this new formula is unlikely to cause 'burping' or 'repeating' ... I took 6 per day and found it very beneficial to my back pain.
I did not known you had new fish oil, but thats great news! What i found most amazing about Xtend-life fish oil is that it has no oddur unlike fish oil i used to buy from drug stores...and that put me off fish oil for years until Xtend-life asked me to try theirs, and I'm glad i did that!
It looks like i will invest hundreads of dollars next week at Xtend life for my mother and dad and myself.
Thanks for the research and great products!
Excellent news Warren. I received my first shipment of your new fish oil yesterday and I must say I love it! I love it because it doesn't smell badly and it hasn't even come up on me during the day, it's very gentle towards my sensitive stomach. Thanks again for a great product.
I have been taking the fish oil supplement.
I was pleasantly surprised because I am allergic to fish, but this doesn't react with me too badly. I still get a stuffed up nose, but I can live with that.
Hi - Your Omega 3's are the BEST!!!!!!! They literally saved my life. My GP told me my triglycerides were up at 720 & that my blood "was like chocolate syrup" and it was a miracle I hadn't stroked out yet. I'm only 45. I began taking your Omega 3's twice a day and when my 3 month check up rolled around my GP was ASTOUNDED and I was totally THRILLED. Without making any drastic changes in my diet other than cutting down on fast food, my trygliceride levels had gone from 720 to 210!!! I was only 60 points above the high end of "normal." My GP was amazed that fish oil helped.
My father in law takes a generic fish oil and they have yet to help him at all. I tried convincing him to switch to your product, but he's too cheap! So, many, many thanks. This product really did save my life. I even feel a difference in my day to day activities. Your Female Rejuvenator also seems to be doing the trick, too! I began noticing improvements as I neared the end of the bottle so I'm re-ordering that one as well.
You guys are the best !!!!!
I ordered the fish oil a few months back after I had a really poor Cholesterol test. My triglycerides were off the charts.
I retook the test about a month ago and my results were dramatically better.
Thanks for the great product.
I just thought I'd let you and the people at XtendLife know that at 52 years I Weight Train and Aerobicize to maintain fitness and a healthy outlook.
Recently, I tried other natural products recommended for this type of activity and in a couple of weeks found my energy, strength, quality of sleeping, and overall outlook decreased substantially.
At first I thought it was just a phase but then realized that this issue started after the product change. After returning to a regimen that included Total Balance Male Premium, Male Rejuvenator, and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil the stamina and quality of life I always enjoyed returned within a few days - phew - thought I'd lost there for a minute. It just feels great to be home again!
Thank you for the Research and Development investment that yields beneficial Products contributing to Societal Health and Well Being.
Thank you so much for the timely reply. I have been very impressed with all of the products I have ordered thus far and have documented tests showing the efficacy of them. Since taking the total balance and Omega 3's, my cholestoral results are 133 total with 54 HDL and 79 LDL and my triglicerides are 45. Wow! The natural energy really helps me with athletic pursuits and I have been able to cycle harder and lift heavier.
My hormone testing before taking the products were troublesome and I will be retesting this month and will have some more results. I have lost over 10 pounds of body fat, not lean muscle mass. Of course, these results are also a product of eating a whole food diet and exercise, but I believe the xtend life products have also helped.
As far as the skin lotion, like I said before, I really like the way it makes my skin feel. I've only been using it for about a week so time will tell more. So far so good. I was really excited to get it. I have actually been using it on my face as well and it is easily absorbed and not greasy. I hope it's okay to use on the face.
I am impressed by your generous offer of sending the mask and another lotion. That is over the top! I appreciate it. I like your idea of having the freshest product available so go ahead and send out my order as is. I was already feeling really good about doing business with such a company dedicated to integrity and now I am feeling great!
Thank you so much,
Thank you for the notice, explanation, and informational link provided.
I appreciate the quality, professionalism, and customer service your company demonstrates.
I recently had a blood panel taken for my exam for my next term life insurance. It looked great, and I believe the Total Balance and Fish Oil had a role to play in those results.
I hope all finds you well. Please tell Warren hi.
"I started my son on Total Balance Unisex and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil a couple of months ago. He's 11 and has had a very hard time with his focus and attention span through all of his school years so far. One doctor and some teachers thought he had ADHD and prescribed medication. I gave it to him briefly, but he complained of feeling weird on the medication and he lost his appetite.
I also noticed he seemed to lose his normal spirit and in some ways seemed almost depressed. I took him off all medications. I really noticed an improvement with the Total Balance and Omega 3/DHA combination. This marking period he made the honor roll which he has never once done through all his school years!
He's in 5th grade now and I want to keep his confidence up for the years ahead when he'll be going to high school. I'm assuming it’s the supplements that are helping him. It’s been a very positive experience for him and me. Your supplements have helped me too! Thanks"
"We have a child who has ASD. Within 3 weeks of her taking 2 Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil per day she settled down and is able to 'think clearly' (her words). Her school work has improved and her social behaviour has too.
I am very thankful that I found Xtend-Life (I found you by browsing the Internet and liked what I read). It has made such a difference to our household. Other mothers who have children in special education at our school are now using Omega 3/DHA with good results too."
"Since I've started taking Total Balance Men's Plus and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil I've noticed my energy increase overall. I teach martial arts and I used to think that the only way I could be on the top of my game, in the zone if you will, was if I was on caffeine. Now I think clearer and quicker when I'm on the floor teaching and I feel as if I have a reserve of energy, which I can call upon at any time.
Other benefits I've noticed from taking the supplements have been that I no longer feel aches and pains anymore. For many years I've been used to feeling sore in many joints and muscles on a regular basis. I also seemed to injure easily. I'm only 23 years old, but I felt like an old man! However, now I no longer feel the aches and pains and I don't seem to injure as easily. It's great to be able to move around freely and not feel pain, especially as a martial artist.
Finally, I want to thank the staff at Xtend-Life for always being so courteous, knowledgeable, helpful and prompt in their replies to my emails. Thanks again!"
"I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your products. I started taking your Cholest-Natural, Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil and Total Balance approximately a year ago. My cholesterol at that time was 279, my triglycerides were 600.
After 6 months I had lowered my cholesterol to 259 and triglycerides to 300.
I went in last week for another blood test and my cholesterol is down to 196 and triglycerides are down to 122.
I do watch what I eat, but have not changed anything drastically. I also have not exercised like I should, so I can honestly say that my results have been attributed to your products. I still need to work on my good and bad cholesterol as my bad is 143 and my good is 28. High cholesterol runs in my family as my mother and sister are both on statins, but I refuse to go on them."
“....I began using Xtend-Life Total Balance Men's Plus, Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil in December 2003....In my early twenties my IQ test scores were around 140. Four years ago they went down to around 134 on tickle.com. We are told to expect a decline in IQ with age....
Last month tickle.com had a new IQ test. My score on that was 141....!
My close-up vision has also unexpectedly improved....I sleep better and awake with fewer aches and pains....
My nails always used to be terribly brittle, and the skin on my hands and feet would crack and bleed every winter. Your Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil put a quick stop to all that....
....It is a vast understatement to say that I am pleased with Xtend-Life supplements. You can be assured that I will continue to take them the rest of my life and to promote them to anyone who is interested."
"I have been taking Total Balance Men's 3 x a day, Neuro-Natural General 3 x a day and Omega 3/DHA 2 x a day for the past week and a half....
...I've had ADD and allergies for as long as I can remember, especially after the age of 8/9. I'm 20 now. In the short time I've been taking your products my ADD and allergy symptoms have diminished quickly.....
I know your products are working because I've been taking prescription medications to treat my symptoms for over a decade.....As soon as I took your products I quit taking my prescriptions cold turkey. In less than a day I noticed that my ADD was virtually gone, I sleep better, I have more energy and my allergies are reduced as well. The disappearance of my allergies is a huge difference because spring is here and allergies have hit my region and I'm virtually unaffected.”
“My wife is very pleased with your product. We have tried other fish oil pills without any noticeable results. A few months ago before she started taking your fish oil she had a high eye pressure reading of 25 and they thought she might have glaucoma. After taking your fish oil the eye pressure reading dropped to 12. So she is out of the danger zone. Thanks.”
Fred K, USA
"I wanted to pass on my test results for last year to add to your database of positive results. I only took Cholest-Natural for one month in the beginning, but I've continued to take Total Balance Men's Plus and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil since then. My results are as follows:
Cholesterol - 228
Triglycerides - 128
LDL - 171
HDL - 31
Cholesterol - 209
Triglycerides - 102
LDL - 155
HDL - 34
Cholesterol - 192
Triglycerides - 57
LDL - 141
HDL – 40
Pretty amazing results. I do watch how much I eat, but not necessarily what I eat. I try to exercise routinely, but I am by no means an exercise enthusiast!
I would like recommendation on how I can effectively increase my HDL as it has not shown a significant increase, but is gradually coming up, which is good.
Thank you for your help and for the great products Warren and his company are providing."
"I've been on Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil and Total Balance for the past week and I have already noticed an improvement in my energy level."
"I have been taking the Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil for about 2 months now. I started using Total Balance about 1 month ago. I have noticed 2 things I would like to ask you about....
I notice that my fingernails have strengthened and become thicker and are growing faster. I like this result. Is this from the fish oil?
I find that I require less sleep. I go to bed late and still wake up early, but I don't feel tired. Is this a benefit of the Total Balance and/or Omega 3/DHA?
One more thing: I noticed a big change in my mental well-being very soon after I began taking the fish oil. Is this an effect of the fish oil, or am I just having good days?"
Thank you for getting back to me and thank you for the support information. All the experts that I contacted agree with you, and I'm so glad. I've really missed the positive benefits of Omega-3. Once again, I really appreciate the information that you've provided.
I thought your response was superb. I really have been EXTREMELY impressed by the level of explanation provided by you and Warren Matthews over the past 12 months or so that I have been using your products. I will certainly be attentive to your new Heart product as it becomes available.
Again, MANY THANKS for your specific response to my questions as well as for your ongoing excellence in all the writing you do to help people through a true medical maze."
"I just wanted to say THANK YOU!! I have had menstrual cramps for many years and have tried all kinds of herbal supplements. I heard about Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil and thought I'd give it a try. It is a miracle!! I have finally found a natural solution to my monthly cramps! Thank you again."
"I have been using Xtend-Life's Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil, Natural Cholesterol Formula and Total Balance for quite a while now after a bad experience with a drug two years ago (by the way, the latter made a HUGE difference to the “brain fog" I had suffered for several months).
Many thanks for both the great products and the open lines of communication. I spent a lot of time researching dietary supplements and chose Xtend-Life for a variety of reasons. It came as a complete shock to discover on placing my first order that you were based in New Zealand. It's fantastic to see a local company doing such great things and being at the forefront of R&D in this area - keep up the good work!"
Brett, New Zealand
"I wanted to let you know how well your supplements are working for me, they have by far surpassed my expectations. I have been using Women's Plus, Female Rejuvenator, Neuro-Natural General and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil for the past 2-weeks. I follow the schedule you suggested and take 3 Female Rejuvenator in the morning along with the Coral Calcium in some juice. After that I take 2 Women's Plus and 2 Neuro-Natural together about every 4-5 hours. I take 3 Omega 3/DHA daily with food.
Let me tell you some of the positive results that I have experienced...
Improved energy, stable mood, a happier, more content and relaxed feeling! I've become very regular and go with ease. My libido is much higher. My cognitive functioning is sharper and more acute. I have a lower appetite and also surprisingly soft lips! They used to be dry and chapped even though I was on high doses of fish oils. I used lip balms but nothing worked. Now I use nothing yet still my lips stay soft!"
"I would like to say that I did purchase Total Balance, the Neuro-Natural formula and the Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil supplements. What great products!
I have noticed that I am handling stress better. It is the holiday season and I am a graphic designer at a newspaper. This means a ton of ads are coming in with tight deadlines, not to mention special sections that have to be designed. I have noticed after only one week that I am coping with stress better and I can stay focused on the task at hand better. The supplements are worth every penny to me for those reasons alone."
I have been taking the Omega 3 for years. I really think, possibly know, that it was the reason that when they diagnosed me to have had a heart attack in May of 2008, and performing many tests, I was able to go home with NO STINT but just info about the clogged arteries and several meds, which I took for a while. I was so glad. I really believe it was because of taking the Omega 3 for years and give it all the credit.
I am going to finally order the Cardio Klenz and maybe the Total Health, depending on my finances each month. Fixed income and all that!!! AND my son is finally convinced to take the Omega 3 ALL THE TIME because he DOES feel the difference. Many thanks for all your care and total commitment.
