Also, here is the link to the playlist which gives more information about telomeres:
Several of the videos in the playlist include presentations by Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn – an Australian-American Nobel laureate who is the former President of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Previously she was a biological researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, who studied the telomere, a structure at the end of chromosomes that protects the chromosome. In 1984, Blackburn co-discovered telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes the telomere, with Carol W. Greider. For this work, she was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, sharing it with Greider and Jack W. Szostak, becoming the first Australian woman Nobel laureate.

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:
Protect and repair DNA
Protect eyes and support eye health
Blunt the inflammatory response of healthy people to an unhealthy meal
Positively impact cellular energy production
Vivix® Quick Facts
Backed by six patents, Vivix is a scientific breakthrough designed to help protect and repair DNA at the cellular level.
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.
