Your biological age is simply how old you are, while your cellular age can be affected by stress, UV rays, environmental toxins, and even poor diet. Vivix contains key ingredients shown in laboratory studies to activate cellular defenses and neutralize the free radicals that are a part of daily life. Designed to help keep cells vital and strong, and support eye health.*3
Slow aging at the cellular level®*
Scientists believe that daily cellular DNA damage may be a key factor in many types of normal age-related issues. Backed by six patents, Vivix contains a proprietary, all natural blend of a broad spectrum of polyphenols based on the muscadine grape featuring superior concentrations of ellagic acid and ellagitannins to other grapes that, when combined with other polyphenols, yield immense antioxidant power. Key Vivix ingredients:
Vivix® Quick Facts
The key ingredients in Vivix help protect and repair cellular DNA.1 In a clinical study, key ingredients were shown to blunt the inflammatory response of healthy people to an unhealthy meal, which over time can lead to cellular aging.*3
One marker of overall health is telomere length. Telomeres are protective endcaps that protect chromosomes in cells. As we age, telomeres grow shorter, and extreme shortening is associated with higher health risks. The big idea: Slowing telomere shortening may support a longer, healthier life. Shaklee supplement users had a 40% lower rate of age-related telomere shortening.*4 An 80-year-old Shaklee supplement user is projected to have the same telomere length as a 41-year-old non-supplement user based on a preliminary clinical study.4
What powers Vivix? Muscadine grapes—one of nature's rarest, most potent fruits. Muscadine grapes have a higher concentration of the polyphenols ellagic acid and ellagitannins than other grapes. Through a patented extraction process, the full spectrum of beneficial polyphenols in muscadine grapes are concentrated and preserved. Combined with resveratrol, these polyphenols yield immense antioxidant power.*
To ensure eco-friendly use of the muscadine grape, Shaklee has developed a long-term partnership with a family-owned vineyard, committed to the highest standards of green and sustainable farming.
Vivix® Liquid: Shake well before use. Take one teaspoon daily with a meal. Keep refrigerated.
Vivix® Liquigels: Take two liquigels daily with a meal.
What makes the muscadine grape different from other grapes?
Muscadine grapes are one of nature's rarest, most potent grapes, and they possess a unique polyphenol profile that science suggests offers a number of health benefits. Unlike other grapes, muscadine grapes boast superior concentrations of ellagitannins and ellagic acid that, when combined with other muscadine grape polyphenols, yield immense antioxidant power.* Muscadine grapes can also thrive in harsh environments; their unique phenolic profile provides extra protection against bacteria, fungus, yeast, drought, excess moisture, and temperature extremes, while other grapes are much more fragile in these environments.
What are polyphenols?
Polyphenols are a group of phytonutrients that confer antioxidant benefits and potentially protective effects against cellular aging. In fact, emerging research suggests that polyphenols may elicit multiple biological effects consistent with sustained and improved human health.*
Is Vivix an antioxidant product?
Laboratory studies have shown that Vivix ingredients can act as powerful antioxidants; however, Vivix goes beyond providing antioxidant support. Key ingredients in Vivix have been shown in a clinical study to activate cellular defenses and blunt the inflammatory response of healthy people to an unhealthy meal, which over time can lead to cellular aging.*3

Shaklee users had longer telomeres3
Statistical analysis projects that an 80-year-old Shaklee supplement user would have the same telomere length as a 41-year-old who did not take supplements.4
Dr. Blackburn on telomeres
Shaklee Scientific Advisory Board Member Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn is a Nobel Prize Winner in Medicine and considered the top authority on telomere science. Shaklee partnered with Dr. Blackburn in a preliminary study which showed that people using Shaklee supplements long-term had longer telomeres than the control group, suggesting they have less telomere shortening.
Mitochondria are the components in our cells that generate energy. As cells age, mitochondria decline in number and/or efficiency. Laboratory studies show that Vivix key ingredients increased mitochondrial mass and cellular energy production.*1
