Turbo charged red wine?

The Wine Doctor in Australia has launched what they claim is the world’s first wine with a boosted level of resveratrol. Like milk with extra vitamins? Resveratrol is a substance that wine contains naturally, especially red wine. The normal content is around 1-2 mg/l resveratrol. The super-charged Wine doctor wine has been boosted to contain 100 mg/l. All for the modest sum of AU$19.95 per bottle. Is it better? We don’t know.

    The wonder ingredient in wine is indeed resveratrol. Dr. David Sinclair, Associate Professor of Pathology and Co-Director of the
    Laboratories for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging at Harvard Medical School is the leader in research into the anti-aging
    properties of resveratrol. The current studies performed by Dr. Sinclair and many other researchers have shown great promise
    for resveratrol treating the diseases of aging. There are numerous articles that I have linked to at my website – – that document the findings for the potential health benefits in treating heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis,
    obesity, and other diseases.
    Concerning supplements containing a high quality and potency of resveratrol that is necessary to achieve the dosage levels
    utilized in the lab tests, there is a new product called Vivix. Shaklee Corporation, the number one natural nutrition company
    in the U.S. (, has produced a liquid resveratrol supplement that is 10 times stronger than
    resveratrol alone due to its patented formulation of polyphenols.
    Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Oz are both users and promoters of Shaklee products and Oprah has featured Roger Barnett, Chairman and
    CEO of Shaklee (, on her show.
    So for a highly researched resveratrol supplement of exceptional quality, please visit – – to discover more about Vivix.
