The creator of XTEND5, Ruth Fernandez, first created our formulas in her kitchen. Over time she discovered that this process in itself was full of healing, hope, intentionality, and grace. As Ruth embarked on holistically responding to her diagnosis of three autoimmune conditions, she combined just five ingredients that have ultimately changed her life.
So, why five? In both our CBD and CBA line, the fundamental ingredients remain the same. In our Nourish Nectar (energy blend) CBD or CBA is combined with Turmeric, Cordyceps, Frankincense, and Reishi. In our Replenish Nectar (sleep and recovery blend), CBD or CBA is combined with Turmeric, Potassium, Melatonin, and Frankincense. And it doesn’t end there. The CBD capsules, our Miracle Manna, contains yet another combination of five ingredients, Turmeric, Reishi, Beet, and Artichoke powders.
This antiviral, ancient ingredient is full of curcuminoids, which include curcumin, a natural inflammation fighting compound that supports digestion and reduces inflammation in the gut and, as a result, the whole body.1
Mushrooms are known for their use in ancient medicine. The Reishi mushroom supports the immune system, addresses fatigue, and acts as a detoxifying agent. They are said to help an array of health conditions.2
Another member of the mushroom family, cordyceps can increase stamina and energy, can calm the auto-immune system, detox the body, and support the immune system.3
This essential oil is a stress reliever, addressing stress and inflammation in the body. Frankincense is also an antiviral agent that protects the body and works with gut microbiome (the gut bacteria) to ease discomfort and create space for healthier digestion.4
This mineral helps with the necessary functioning of cells in the body. It increases brain conductivity, can reduce the effects of muscle cramps, and can also address fluid balance in the body. Potassium is also known to decrease blood pressure and reduce stroke risk.5
Melatonin is a hormone that the body naturally produces. It helps maintain a healthy internal clock while supporting brain regeneration and sleep patterns. Melatonin is also an antioxidant.6
Beets contain an antioxidant called alpha-lipoic acid. This compound may help lower glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity. Beets support cardiovascular endurance, support thyroid function, and can be a great healing advocate for brain health.7
The extract from artichokes is potent support to the body, full of antioxidants. They promote healthy thyroid function and cardiovascular health. Artichoke is used to stimulate the flow of bile from the liver, which can reduce the symptoms of heartburn. Artichokes are an aid for many other health issues in systems like the kidneys, liver, bowel, and bladder.8
Each ingredient in our products here at XTEND5 has a superpower! That’s the breathtaking dynamic to the combinations that now exist. Ruth’s blends have made for an elite and holistic product that works to address inflammation in the body and increase bioavailability (how much we absorb).
So, why these 5? Well, there is synergy and grace (5 letters in grace is where the “5” in XTEND5 comes from) in each ingredient individually, and combined, they work together to gently detox, support and aid mind, and body. Simply put, the varying combination of five ingredients have the potential to leave you feeling REVIVED!
