There has been a lot of talk about Resveratrol. But if a person takes just resveratrol they are not getting the full benefit of a polyphenol. Resveratrol is only one polyphenol out of many.
Let me start with the top 2 ingredients in Shaklee’s Vivix a mixed polyphenol product that contains much more than resveratrol. Two of the several polyphenols that is used in Vivix is found in red wine and ellagic acid which comes from Muscadine grapes.
These aren’t the only beneficial ingredients in Vivix, but if I talked about all of the ingredients, this would be several pages long. Resveratrol and ellagic acid are both members of a naturally occurring class of compounds called polyphenols – found in fruits, green tea, coffee, chocolate and many other foods. They are excellent anti-oxidants & have a number of potential health benefits. So it is perhaps no surprise that almost any food containing polyphenols has been turned into a supplement by someone.
And most of these companies have a long list of supposed health benefits for their products. So what is the Vivix difference?
What makes Vivix different from all of these other polyphenol products?
1. There are over 3000 published scientific studies on the top two ingredients in Vivix (1800 on Resveratrol & 1200 on ellagic acid) compared to a handful for the other products on the market.
2. Resveratrol is the only polyphenol that has been shown to delay the aging process and lead to a longer, healthier life span. This has been demonstrated in every organism tested, from yeast to worms to fruit flies to mice.
The anti-aging benefits of Resveratrol have nothing to do with its anti-oxidant potential because it binds to a protein that turns on the body’s anti-aging genes. That is why you shouldn’t pay any attention to the hype about the anti-oxidant potential of the other polyphenol products on the market.
There is no proven link between anti-oxidants and longevity! Of course, anti-oxidants do play many useful roles in the body, but Vivix has a higher ORAC score (the standard measure of anti-oxidant potential) than most of those other products anyway. So to the extent that anti-oxidant potential is important, Vivix trumps the other products.
3. The polyphenols in Shaklee’s patent-pending polyphenol blend have all been shown to activate the same anti-aging genes as Resveratrol. That is not true of the polyphenols found in many of the other products on the market.
4. The polyphenols in Shaklee’s polyphenol blend are ten times more effective than Resveratrol alone at preventing the formation of advanced glycation end (AGE) particles, a key mechanism of cellular aging.

Here are just a few of the many testimonials we receive about Vivix
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE: I have high blood pressure that is controlled by a diuretic and beta blocker combination. Usually even with medication, my systolic ranges between 129-138 and my diastolic between 75-83 and my pulse would range anywhere from 80-91 (rarely dropping below 80).
After five days on Vivix, my blood pressure was 111/69 and pulse 59. The only thing different that I have been doing prior to this low reading is Vivix. The past few days my BP seems to be consistently around 122/73 and pulse 70. That’s pretty pleasing to me. I hope to eventually be able to come off all medications.
I have not been on any other medications nor changed my diet any and my exercise level is still around 7500 steps a day, with some light resistance workouts with 5 lb. weights. Overall, I have more energy and am better able to concentrate.
I recommend taking Vivix in the morning so you can get the benefit of more energy throughout the day. – Genia
ARTHRITIC KNEE: On day 10 of taking Vivix, I noticed quite a difference in the pain level of my knee that is swollen on the side from arthritis. I would say it was about 60 percent less painful and stiff. It’s sore now because I had a marathon week of traveling and company, but the swelling is definitely down and I’m very excited.
I used to wake up in the night and dread having to move my knee and when I got up, my knee was very painful for many steps. Sometimes I would have to walk around at night to get my knee to feel a little better. Now I have even been able to walk better when I first get up and start walking. I don’t move like I’m 95. I’m very excited. – Pam
MIGRAINE RELIEF: I just wanted to share with you that I’ve taken Vivix for about 2 weeks and noticed that I haven’t had to take my migraine medicine. I have been suffering with almost daily migraines for the past 6 years. I would even wake up around 3:00 a.m. and start throwing up. Often, I had to call my parents to care for my children as I was so sick with pain and nausea, even with the medications.
I haven’t had to take medicine in at least a week. I have tried numerous medicines for migraines and even have tried herbal remedies without any luck. Vivix is amazing. Hopefully it will greatly improve my fibromyalgia also. I am going to order some for a friend who suffers from cluster headaches. – Kristen –
