I was just reading an article on a website I visit periodically. And the article was about was about a study done at University of Basque Country. Evidently they have been trying to figure out why French Women don’t get Fat. And of course it may be that they don’t eat Paula Deans wonderful home cooking recipes with plenty of fat and sugar. Or could it be that the French have smaller portions. Or perhaps it is the unprocessed non-GMO fresh foods? No they actually found another secret.
The secret – as some suspected – is in the red wine. Red wine contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that has the ability to reduce body fat. It even reduces the accumulation of triglycerides, and seems to be especially effective when combined with a low-calories diet, says researcher Arrate Lasa, at the University of the Basque Country.
So, resveratrol –improves the positive effects of a diet, and explains why it is that the French don’t put on the weight in the first place, despite their high-fat diet.

It is interesting to note that when David Sinclair from Harvard first discovered the wonderful properties of resveratrol, he actually found out that it took a whole lot more resveratrol than most scientists thought to get the best benefits. Now I am not saying that drinking a glass of wine or two is not beneficial but it evidently is not near enough to get the positive benefits from this nutrient. And myself, well I would be under the table with a couple of sips of red wine. Dr. Sinclair found that more like 300 glasses a day would be better. Well that is a huge liquor bill…and who has the time to do that?
So what is the best way to find an effective resveratrol product? Shaklee Corporation with the guidance of Mr. Resveratrol himself, Dr. Sinclair put together the most effective anti-aging product called Vivix. One teaspoon is equal to the amount of resveratrol in 300 glasses of wine. They even went to the extra mile and had University of Georgia develop a manufacturing process that would eliminate oxidizing the product.
As scientist continued to research scientist have discovered that using a mixture of resveratrol and other plants in the same category and resveratrol, called polyphenols actually had even better results than resveratrol alone. This was actually proven using Shaklee’s Vivix and resveratrol products at the University of Tennessee.
By doing a muscle biopsy they divided individuals into 3 categories;those that took no reseveratrol, those that took resvertrol alone and those that took the mixed polyphenol Vivix that includes resveratrol and other polyphenols.
Here is a picture of the results. The more green the better. This is the mitochondria of the cell that looks green. Mitochondria are the energy furnaces of each cell…the more you have the better. These mitochondria produce something called ATP, and this is what fuels all of the body’s energy. More energy, less aging, better use of insulin and repair of the body…and who couldn’t use more energy and cell repair. They know that Vivix actually repair damaged DNA.
University of Georgia, [RxPG] Researchers have known for years that damaged DNA can lead to human diseases such as cancer, but how damage occurs–and what causes it–has remained less clear. Some scientist believe damage to the DNA damage, is due to environmental factors and normal metabolic processes inside the cell that occurs at a rate of 1,000 to 1,000,000 molecular lesions per cell per day.
While I can’t recommend drinking 300 glasses of wine a day I can highly recommend the number one aging product , Shaklee Vivix. Put it on autoship and get an additional 10% off.
