Have your heard about the most significant human study to date on resveratrol – and more specifically how it supports the health-enhancing benefits of resveratrol that is helping people with chronic age-related diseases. The link to the study is below.
Let’s talk about resveratrol benefits and the amount of resveratrol mg that can provide a positive benefit for you. Have you heard that drinking a glass of red wine can be healthy? Do you know why exactly this is true?
In 2006, a great deal of buzz formed around the announcement that researchers at the Harvard Medical School and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) found a natural substance in red wine, known as resveratrol, can potentially offset the negative effects of a high-calorie diet and significantly extend lifespan in mice.
In a nation of increased rates of overweight, obesity and life threatening diabetes, finding a natural ingredient – with only side BENEFITS, not side effects – that could impact the devastating effects of eating too much fat and too many calories is very exciting!
There are over 1800 scientific research studies on resveratrol. In addition to working at the cellular level to fight the diseases that age our cells, including cancer, resveratrol reduces inflammation in your body and improves insulin sensitivity. There are heart benefits as well, and remember that inflammation is associated with being one of the causes of many different illnesses.
When all the news started coming out about resveratrol research, supplement companies went to work and started producing resveratrol products. Some came out faster than I was comfortable with knowing. It takes time to develop a product that is safe, good quality, and will be absorbed and utilized in your body the best. I don’t pretend to understand the science behind making a product but I do know that I have standards for the nutrition I will put in my body.
Let’s take a look at the Shaklee brand of resveratrol, VIVIX, and what sets it apart from another brand. Shaklee rarely makes a product with only one ingredient – in fact I don’t know of any at all. One Shaklee difference is to make ‘blends’ of ingredients. And the ingredients are specially chosen when they can be proven to work together to produce an effect that is better than the single ingredient: it’s called working ‘synergistically’ together.
Shaklee does the research – their own research – and they considered the fact that resveratrol impacts three different (major) mechanisms of cellular aging. What they decided to do was add a patent pending polyphenol blend to their resveratrol, including a nutrient that is backed by over 1200 published studies.
So when Shaklee combined their high quality source of resveratrol to the polyphenol blend they developed, it made the resveratrol blend 10 times more effective than resveratrol alone. Shaklee invested years of research to locate and isolate the unique blend of potent plant phytochemicals that could protect and repair cellular DNA, and address the factors that make our cells age.
Vivix is made with the purest and most potent natural resveratrol available and contains a unique profile of polyphenols which have been shown to address mechanisms of cellular aging in several laboratory tests. Vivix ingredients combat these key mechanisms by; repairing cellular DNA, positively impacting genetic regulators to help turn down aging, and promoting mitochondrial biogenesis to increase power production within cells.
Published in Nature, the Harvard Medical School and NIA report suggests that resveratrol could help offset some of the negative impacts of a high-calorie diet in mice. The researchers found that resveratrol extended the lifespan of mice and appeared to blunt some of the effects of aging.
Too tired to exercise? In a study published this month (see News about Resveratrol link below to learn about the study) resveratrol helped people increase their energy and lower their blood pressure and triglycerides as well as balance blood sugar levels. The research around resveratrol is very exciting, and we have a natural supplement available that helps us not only FIGHT AGING and the illnesses and diseases that come with it, but also to FEEL BETTER right now.
This product goes far beyond resveratrol in the fight against cellular aging. A 30-day supply delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 3,000 glasses of red wine and has actually been shown in laboratory studies to be ten times more powerful than resveratrol alone at slowing one of the key mechanisms of cellular aging. Vivix is a cellular anti-aging tonic, and the first all-natural dietary supplement that combines resveratrol with a patent-pending plant extract to fight cellular aging.
When you buy Shaklee products you take away any risks for a couple of reasons: 1) All Shaklee products are 100% guaranteed – either you are happy with the product and it is working for you and giving you healthy results or you get your money back; and 2) There aren’t any side effects to natural nutrition supplements – only side benefits. Your body can heal and can build better health if you give it the right nutrients.
Shaklee takes the guesswork away from finding these right nutrients. They do the years of study and research, the thousands of quality checks to make sure they are using the safest AND most effective ingredients (remember Shaklee must deliver you those results!), patented delivery systems (other companies don’t have) that make sure the nutrients get to the right part of the body at just the right time during the digestive process in order to be released and absorbed to work most effectively in your body, and last but not least – ongoing clinical studies to make sure the products keep working.
The recommended serving of Vivix is one teaspoon a day, taken preferably with breakfast or lunch. Vivix is all natural without artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors or added preservatives and is exclusively available through Shaklee Independent Distributors. Order your Vivix, visit:
