  • Shaklee Corporation has introduced a new product, Vivix Cellular Anti-Aging Tonic, a dietary supplement that contains resveratrol, a natural substance found in red wine which Harvard University researchers determined can potentially offset the negative effects of a high-calorie diet and significantly extend lifespan in mice.

    “Vivix is a revolutionary new product that goes beyond resveratrol in the fight against cellular aging,” says Roger Barnett, chairman and CEO of Shaklee Corporation. “A 30-day supply delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 3,000 glasses of red wine.”  

    Additional information on the new product is available at www.shaklee.com.
