-On Page 193 Dr Maroon writes this on Vivix: There is growing evidence that a
combination of resveratrol and other potent polyphenols might provide
improved health benefits due to the synergistic properties of different
polyphenols from different plant sources. Shaklee Corporation, a direct
selling nutrition company has recently released a product called Vivix,
which is described as a cellular anti-aging tonic. It contains a
multi-source polyphenol blend. In conversations with the company, they state
that the blend includes 100 mg of 98 percent pure resveratrol from Polygonum
cuspidatum long with a proprietary extract derived from the fresh pomace of
muscadine grapes (Vitis rotundifolia) The company recommends 5ml per day of
Vivix, which they state is equivalent to the amount of resveratrol found in
100 glasses of red pinot noir red wine. The muscadine polyphenols in this
blended product along with the added resveratrol, European elderberry
extract, and purple carrot extract will increase the total overall
polyphenol content of this product. A month's supply will cost a member
$85.00. In Shaklee's accompanying literature for Vivix, they state that the
Vivix ingredients were shown in a laboratory study to be 10 times more
powerful in slowing a key mechanism of aging than resveratrol alone."
Also, on Page 70, the author expands on the value of the muscadine grapes
and the advantages over European grapes. "Muscadine grapes are native to
North America, and may be the only fruit that originated in the United
States and nowhere else. They grow almost exclusively in the southeastern
They thrive under adverse conditions, perhaps due to their thicker and
tougher skins compared to European grapes.... muscadines have an extra
(twenty instead of the nineteen other grapes have). These additional genes
allow muscadine grapes to produce a unique phytochemical, ellagic acid.
The ellagive acid polyphenol compounds that are in muscadine grapes are
vitually absent in other grapes. Ellagic acid is used by the muscadine grape
skin to make tannin called ellagotannins, whichis used as an antimicrobial
by the plant. Ellagic acid also has powerful antioxidant and anticancer
properties.... the polyphenols in muscadine grape skins have been shown to
have positive effects in heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes,
metabolic syndrome, and other inflammatory conditions. One of the more
interesting effects of muscadine products appears to be their inhibition of
AGE protein formation."
Continuing, the author states:" Recently, a large nutrition, direct selling
company, Shaklee Corporation, working with scientists from the University of
Georgia, has created a product containing an extract made from muscadine
pomace which is the remaining fruit solids after the water content is
Specificaly, they are working with muscadine grape growers in order to
secure grapes with large amounts of protective polyphenols including ellagic
acid and resveratrol. By selecting muscadine grapes and by using a whole
grape extraction process, they have reported that their extract has a
significantly higher concentration of healthy polyphenols than found in the
