A Review of The Xtend-Life Total Balance Childrens Multi-Vitamin
Just What Are The Best Children's Vitamins?
by Glenn Reschke
Welcome to this Xtend-Life Total Balance Children's product
review web page.
In the beginning years of a child’s life, it’s important to make sure they get the nutrients they need during
their formative years so they can develop properly. The ideal multi-vitamin should be highly assimilable, or
"bio-available," and meet all needs of a child.
Xtend-Life believe their Total Balance Children's vitamin product does that. The Total Balance line is the
flagship formula line of the New Zealand-based company.
Xtend-Life is proud of their product and believe it is the best multi-vitamin for children on the planet. Let’s
Xtend-Life asserts that the first step toward creating a superior nutraceutical or pure-grade quality supplement
is its ingredients. To that end, the company employs a third-party laboratory to test the raw ingredients for the
proposed tablets in cGMP-compliant facilities, which is the highest purity standard possible. (The cGMP stands for
"current Good Manufacturing Practices and is an industry standard.)
Once their raw ingredients are certified as pure, a Certificate of Analysis (COA) on file, confirming the
potency of each batch’s ingredients.
The Total Balance Children's version is then manufactured in Xtend-Life’s own cGMP-compliant
facility where they utilize cutting-edge manufacturing processes like pharmaceutical blending instead of
traditional paddle/ribbon blender-type mixers like most vitamin manufacturers.
The end result is a tablet that is superior made. The final step for Xtend-Life is to encapsulate every tablet
with enteric coating, which preserves some of the especially sensitive ingredients in the tablet until it passes
into through the stomach into the upper intestine or duodenum where it’s released into your child’s bloodstream.
From there, it does its work.
Xtend-Life emphasizes that the company manufactures according to FDA rules and they use some test
methods are in the British Pharmacopeia, which are isolated to testing some elements like the enteric coating. A
How Does Xtend-Life Total Balance Specifically Benefit Children?
The health benefits the children may see include:
Improved brain, mental health, and overall health, which gives the child better learning capacity and
the health to enjoy normal childhood play.
Boosted immune system to keep the child healthy
Increased resistance to disease
Prevents nutrient deficiency, which is the breeding ground for mal-forming and disease.
Xtend-Life also says that, "It is likely that your child may have more energy and better concentration and may
be much less likely to suffer from ADHD."
This product is designed for children from four to 12. The only difference is that with children ages four to
five, the dosage is two tablets per day. For children ages five to 12, it’s recommended to be three tablets per
Customer Testimonials & Reviews

abundance for the Total Balance line in general. Here are a few below.
The product has been a tremendous help. Thank you, it's everything you said it would it be and in today's
world TRUTH is a rare find.

I had cancelled my loyalty order last year around this time and I have to say it was the worst decision I
made. My Wife had started on them and she noticed a big difference quickly (who doesn't) and that was on half the
recommended amount. I also have missed the noticeable benefits. I have taken vitamins my entire life. Everything
from local store brands up to the top of the line commercially available products. No line of product has affected
me as dramatically and as quickly as Xtend-life Supplements. Thank you for a great product.
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. Take care.......
I recently purchased Total Balance, and was considering additional Selenium supplementation, but obviously
it's not necessary. I really appreciate your follow up. You have just gained me as a regular customer. This is the
type of customer service I used to get from ... 25 years ago before it got bigger - please don't change!
By the way, I referred the product to my 85 year old father and after several months of use his grey hair
turned black again! He also feels great. Thank you.
Thanks a million!

Are There Any Customer Complaints?
No self-respecting review of the Xtend-Life Total Balance Children's product would be complete without going
over some of the customer complaints or negatives that exist regarding the Total Balance line.
The Total Balance Children's line itself seems to be very well received by consumers the world over and it’s
So, the complaints regarding this product are not about the product itself but the product’s price point.
Xtend-Life counters this charge saying that most children’s vitamins are nothing more but a badly compiled batch
of synthetic vitamins and minerals.
They say their product is highly bio-available and that all the ingredients are actually certified
pharmaceutical-grade quality as certified by an independent third-party laboratory.
