Xtend-Life Zupafood for Skin With Glutathione, Marine Collage & Elastin

Beauty from the inside out

  • Designed specifically to youth-ify your skin
  • With marine collagen and elastin polypeptides from France
  • Increased efficacy with Glutathione, Grape Skin Extract and Vitamin C

Combining the power of ‘Superfoods’, Glutathione and Collagen/Elastin Polypeptides to help your skin defy aging to look younger and more radiant

Zupafood for SKIN is arguably the most effective ‘beauty from within’ supplement on the world market today. Red Grape Skin Extract and various ‘superfoods’ are well known for the benefits they can provide your skin and general health. But when they are combined with special clinically proven collagen and elastin polypeptides, then you can expect a quantum leap in results.

This is what Zupafood for SKIN is...an oral supplement that is a quantum leap ahead of the ‘normal’ collagen or other ‘beauty from within’ supplements.

To get maximum results from such a ‘beauty from within’ product it also has to address the general health of all the organs in your body...not just the skin. There is interdependency between the various organs. This is why our R & D team at Xtend-Life also addressed the overall health of the body in addition to specific nutrients targeting of the skin.

Your Skin Is The Largest Organ In Your Body

It is easy for us to forget that our skin is the largest organ in our body! Ironically, often when we think that we are looking after it, we may in our efforts to hydrate and moisturize it, actually harm our other organs and systems by using skin care products that contain potentially dangerous chemicals. (This is Xtend-Life developed their skincare line with the philosophy that all ingredients must be ‘safe to eat’.)

If the basic foundation of your skin...more particularly the dermis is not properly nourished it will start breaking down the collagen and elastin. Collagen and Elastin cross link together giving the skin its tensile strength. When they start breaking down...the results are...WRINKLES, SAGGING and UNHEALTHY looking skin.

To help ensure this does not happen to you, they have incorporated ‘Collactive’ marine collagen and polypeptides in our Zupafood for SKIN. This nutrient alone has been clinically proven in human trials to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help mature skin build lift...and a firming cushion.

They have included 2,000mgs of ‘Collactive’ in every serving of Zupafood for SKIN. This is the same daily dose rate which gave the results in the clinical studies.

'Collactive' Marine Collagen and Elastin Polypeptides

Collagen fibers form 70% of the total proteins found in the dermis. When collagen fibers cross-link – they give skin the tensile strength of steel. Elastin fibers create suppleness and elasticity. Combined – collagen and elastin create the perfect “dynamic duo” for supporting smooth, soft, strong and supple skin!

Low levels of collagen or a reduced amount of elastin causes skin to lose strength and flexibility. The result? Wrinkles and skin aging!

Collactive™ is composed of low molecular weight marine collagen and elastin peptides in the same ratio as the dermis in human skin.

Collactive™ combines the two main constituents of the extracellular matrix and has an anti-wrinkle synergic action: elastin fibres give the dermis suppleness that completes collagen fibres tensile strength.

The key benefits include:

  • Reinforces skin hydration.

    A 3-month clinical study involving women over 40 showed Collactive™ collagen increases the hydration of the epidermis – the layer of the skin that’s more prone to aging.

  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

    They may not completely vanish – but it sure makes those lines harder to see! In a clinical trial there was a reduction in the number of deep wrinkles of 19% in the group taking the oral dose of Collactive compared to the placebo group.

  • Help mature skin build lift – and a firming cushion

    Collactive™ collagen and elastin polypeptides support the dermis to lift and tone sagging areas of the skin.

  • Create protective shield against harsh weather

    Trials found that Collactive helped provide protection for the skin against environmental elements.

For General Health

I mentioned earlier about ‘Superfoods’ being included in this supplement because of the importance of good general health. Xtend-Life have developed their own special ‘superfood’ blend of New Zealand super fruits, all harvested locally in pure pure New Zealand.

This Xtend-Life blend consists of Kiwifruit Powder, a special Extract of Kiwifruit, Grape Seed Extract, Grape Juice Powder, Red Grape Skin Extract and Apple Fiber. To learn more about this blend read below for more details about the ingredients.


Kiwifruit has a number of health benefits. Our NZ Superfood blend contains Kiwifruit in two forms. One as a freeze dried powder and another in the form of a special extract which provides highly concentrated actives, including phenolics and enzymes.

Both of these forms are used in the Kiwi-Klenz supplement product. You can find more information about this unique and very effective ingredient on the Kiwi-Klenz product page...especially focusing on how it can help support healthy digestion.

Grape Seed Extract

The Grape Seed Extract used in the Xtend-Life Superfood Blend is all produced in New Zealand from grapes harvested in the Marlborough area of the South Island. The UV light from the sun is very intense and amongst the strongest in the world (due to the low level of ozone above New Zealand).

As a result, nature has adapted the grapes grown in this region to have greater antioxidant concentrations than grapes grown in other parts of the world. This is nature’s way of protecting the grapes. Also, the extraction process used for these grapes uses only water, not ethanol.

Ethanol is the method used primarily in other parts of the world, and unlike this unique water extraction process, ethanol extraction destroys some of the valuable elements of the grape seed.

Red Grape Skin Extract

This is a quite a unique grape skin extract, and it is rarely used in supplements because very little is produced.

And what makes it different?

This is grown in New Zealand, and the extract is produced from non-fermented grapes. Usually grape skin extract is produced from the skins of grapes that have already been fermented during the process of making of red wine. This means that they have lost their deep purple color and have been bleached white. Ethanol is also used in the extraction process.

The grape skin extract that Xtend-Life uses is from non-fermented grapes and uses a unique water extraction process. Laboratory tests on the extract prove that the extract contains 20 actives while ‘normal’ grape skin extract only has around 4!

For Additional Energy

As with all the Zupafood family of products they have included a high quality green tea extract with natural caffeine to help stimulate a mild natural ‘buzz’. Plus it provides other general health benefits. They include 75mgs of this extract in every serving.

Green Tea Extract

Along with general health benefits, the Green Tea in the Zupafood delivers a natural energy boost!

That is because one of the actives in green tea is natural caffeine. However this green tea extract contains a low dose of caffeine that doesn’t cause the “jittery” effects associated with caffeine found in coffee – yet still gives you an energy boost.

What’s more...

... green tea extract contains the amino acid L-theanine – that helps improve your mood.

Studies show that combining caffeine and L-theanine can have positive, synergistic effects – giving you a mild, natural “buzz” to keep you mentally and physically focused.

For Your Bones

Because many customers who use this product are women, and because bone health is important to most women, they have included an excellent bio-available calcium from a plant source. This gives you the calcium equivalent of eating a cup of raw spinach each day without the inconvenience. 500mgs of Aquamin TG is included in every serving.

Aquamin TG (calcium)

Aquamin TG is extracted from a marine plant source that’s rich in natural calcium, magnesium and 74 other trace minerals including zinc, iron and selenium.

Aquamin TG is produced from the red algae, Lithothamnion species – which is only found in three remote areas around the world. During its growth phase, these algae absorb essential minerals directly from the sea – giving Aquamin TG its unique and potent multi-mineral content.

Extra Enhancement for Your SKIN

To make Zupafood for SKIN even MORE effective they have also added a low molecular weight L-Glutathione along with Vitamin C and additional Red Grape Skin Extract in the formula.

Glutathione is considered to be a master antioxidant and very beneficial for the skin. However, most forms of Glutathione are quite ineffective as the molecule size is to big to get through the intestinal walls and be used.

They use a very high quality small molecular size Glutathione (as they use in Total Balance) to help overcome this problem. They put in extra (100mgs) per serving because Glutathione is sensitive to stomach acid, so some of it is lost in the digestion process. (This is why we enteric coat our Total Balance to protect sensitive nutrients).

Some marketers claim that Glutathione will help whiten the skin. There is not enough evidence to support that claim but there is evidence supporting its efficacy in helping support the healthy appearance of skin.

Only Natural Flavoring

Zupafood for SKIN is supplied in convenient packets in powder form because the dose it too high to put in capsule...it is equivalent to around 16 capsules. Just tear open a packet and mix it with water in the shaker supplied with your first order.

Collagen and superfoods are not pleasant to drink on their own...so, they had to use flavoring to make it pleasant to drink. To get an acceptable flavor is not easy...UNLESS an artificial flavor is used...but, they were under strict instructions from their Founder and Chairman Warren Matthews NOT to use anything artificial.

Zupafood for SKIN has ‘blueberry’ flavor…from real blueberries.
