Pharmanex is a division of Nu Skin. Because of the size of Pharmanex there is a lot of marketing hype surrounding Lifepak. Pharmanex certainly has the financial means to dazzle us with a tonne of scientific data and marketing literature.
Lifepak was even an “officially licensed product of the U. It is backed by tremendous resources and uses a tonne of scientific studies to support the ingredients it contains. This review examines Lifepak ‘Regular’ Version.
LifePak | FULL Prescribing Information |
The head scientist for Lifepak, Joseph Chang, Ph. Scientists with his experience are hard to find and few are working in the supplement industry. The use of every ingredient in Lifepak is backed by many clinical studies which have been studied extensively by Dr Chang’s team of scientists. The company did advise me that three of their processes reached this level safety testing, certificates of analysis, and microbial testing.
Pharmanex is one of the few companies to set their own specifications for manufacturing and essentially their contract manufacturers had to shape up and meet these specs if they wanted to work with Pharmanex in the beginning. They apply what they call their 6 S Process selection, sourcing, substantiation, standardization and safety to ensure only the best, purest and safest raw ingredients are used. Pharmanex has done 2 double-blind placebo-controlled studies to measure the antioxidant levels in healthy non- smokers.
These tests prove that people using Lifepak experience increased antioxidant levels. This is a key strength for Lifepak and although health needs to be assessed through a much wider set of health markers than just antioxidant levels, these tests none-the-less should hopefully spur other leading supplement companies into action to find ways measure or prove product claims. Lifepak contains 4 all natural excipients inactives which is at the low end of the optimal range of 4 — Customer service is very good.

For a couple of tricky questions I posed where there was obviously no prepared responses, their answers were a little wishy washy and skirted around the main issue s. They wouldn’t reveal quite a lot of the information I requested — info that hardly seems proprietary but which they think is e.
All the processes around Lifepak are impressive and top notch but the product itself comes up short — at least in comparison to Total Balance. Sorry folks but Lifepak appears to me to be more like an expensive multi vitamin and mineral supplement including some important extras.
In comparison to Total Balance, Lifepak does not offer good value for money. Lifepak regular has no enzymes, no amino acids, no specific male or female support nutrients other than isoflavones and cranberry powder for urinary tract infections in LifePak Women and very few trace elements.
Sure – women need additional calcium. But as I said above, supplement consumers are health conscious people and have fairly good diets to begin with. Most of them easily have adequate intake of calcium via their diet.
I do not believe that they are part of the population segment shown in surveys that show large percentage of the US population do not consume enough calcium. With respect to calcium the problem is not so much not getting enough but rather a leaching of calcium from the bones – caused by diet!
Professional grade supplements should be formulated to address this specific issue. Calcium is so cheap that if you feel you need additional calcium, or have been diagnosed with low levels, then you are best to purchase it separately.
Supplements should not be loaded up with calcium and other vitamins and minerals that may or may not be needed. If you want more beneficial ingredients then Pharmanex makes you pay for it. For this you get:. But none of the expensive and efficious hormone precursors other than soy isoflavones such as those contained in Total Balance.
The additional 20 mg of isoflavones over regular Lifepak is a good move and is the best part of these extras in this Women’s version. The only prostate nutrient it contains is a tiny 5mg of lycopene which is already in Lifepak regular.
These are good nutrients that should be in Lifepak regular to begin with without any additional cost! Only 1 to 2 mg will be absorbed and this falls short of the 5 mg needed from our daily diet.
The Lifepak money back guarantee has too many conditions for my liking. Surely the amount of people who shop in the best vitamin supplement category and then decide shortly thereafter to send back the product must be insignificant to a company the size of Pharmanex.
So why so many conditions?? It gives a negative, consumer-unfriendly feel! I asked Xtend-Life about this since they have an unconditional 12 month money back guarantee on any unopened bottles, and they reported that the amount of customers who claim against the guarantee is negligible.
These powerful plant based chemicals are constantly impressing scientists with their lifeak health promoting benefits which include the ability to fight disease. Phytonutrients are the ingredients that you want to see making up a significant amount of your multi ingredient supplement. Sorry to repeat myself but its an important comment! I have also mentioned the importance of standardized herbal extracts in multi nutrient supplements. Grape seed extract and catechins from Green Tea extract.
Grape seed is a very strong antioxidant that has been well researched and has numerous health benefits. LifePak Prime has liffpak additional two standardized extracts milk thistle and Gingko 50 mg of each. My final take on Lifepak is this: Pharmanex are a top notch, science-based company dedicated to making a difference and they certainly know how to scientifically formulate a professional supplement aimed at supporting overall good health. The problem as I see it is that they are held back by too many costs: MLM marketing, huge company structure and pyarmanex pressure.
This shows in the composition of Lifepak. Does your pantry include that ancient root spice known as turmeric? In not, you may be missing out on some amazing health benefits. Mayo Clinic dietitian, Anya Guy, recently shared some of those benef…. I would appreciate it if you please explain the difference between pharmanes oils and cod liver oil.
