Aging happens to all of us, and it starts on the inside.

It’s staggering but true: your cells are attacked over 500 trillion times every minute, not only by a modern diet and toxins in the environment but also by the unavoidable cellular wear and tear of simply being alive. The accumulated damage from these attacks causes your cells to age, and when your cells age, you age.

Vivix is formulated to Slow Aging at the Cellular Level® by targeting the key factors that cause it. Derived from unique ingredients, Vivix is laboratory-tested to protect your cells so you can live healthily longer.

Key ingredients in Vivix are shown to:

  • Protect against DNA damage
  • Neutralize free radicals
  • Protect against oxidative stress
  • Blunt inflammatory response*
  • Reduce formation of damaging AGE proteins
  • Help in energy metabolism
  • Help with immune function
  • Help with cardiovascular health

How Does Cellular Aging Happen?

Harmful external factors and everyday cellular processes create reactive molecules called free radicals. When free radicals accumulate faster than our bodies can neutralize them, they cause oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can harm your cells. It can harm essential cellular components, including your mitochondria, and also contribute to the formation of advanced glycation end product (AGE) proteins. This cumulative impact triggers a chain reaction, with cells producing more free radicals, thereby accelerating cellular damage and cellular aging.

While we can make certain lifestyle choices to minimize harm to our cells, the internal processes that sustain our lives cannot be completely avoided.

Vivix’s unique formulation helps defend cells from internal and external attacks by neutralizing free radicals, reducing oxidative stress, and helping energy metabolism, which contributes to immune and cardiovascular health.

Unmatched in its potency and cellular protection benefits, this unique blend of ingredients in Vivix is scientifically proven to Slow Aging at the Cellular Level®, as evidenced by denser and more functional mitochondria, increased cellular energy production, and the presence of fewer AGE proteins.

Proven Science

Protect DNA from Damage

DNA damage is a significant driver of the normal aging process. As we age, our cells accumulate DNA damage, which can lead to disruptions in cellular function.

How Vivix Helps

  • Laboratory studies have shown that Vivix’s key ingredients significantly reduce DNA damage. Comparatively, when cells were treated with Vivix ingredients, they experienced two-thirds less DNA damage compared to cells that didn’t get Vivix.

Blunt Inflammatory Response*

Inflammation is a natural reaction in the body. Inflammation can perpetuate oxidative stress, which contributes to cellular damage and cellular aging.

How Vivix Helps

  • High-fat, high-carb meals and unhealthy dietary patterns can lead to normal inflammation. In a clinical study, Vivix was shown to blunt the inflammatory response in healthy people to a high-fat, high-carb meal.1
  • On two separate visits one week apart, 10 healthy subjects were given a high-fat, high-carb breakfast after an overnight fast. On the first visit, they were given a placebo 10 minutes before they ate. On the second visit, they took a single dose of Vivix 10 minutes prior to eating. The high-fat, high-carb meal caused a substantial increase in typical markers of inflammation, but these markers were significantly blunted when the participants supplemented with Vivix.1

Reduce Formation of Damaging AGE Proteins

Advanced glycation end products (AGE) are proteins or lipids that become glycated and oxidized after exposure to sugars. AGE proteins accumulate in our tissues as we age and are thought to contribute to the aging process and age-related conditions. AGE proteins are formed when sugars, such as glucose or fructose, react with proteins or lipids in a process known as glycation. This reaction can occur spontaneously but is accelerated by oxidative stress. AGE proteins can also induce oxidative stress by increasing the production of free radicals in our cells, perpetuating a cycle of damage and impaired cellular function.

How Vivix Helps

  • Key ingredients in Vivix have been shown in laboratory studies to reduce the formation of AGE proteins. Cells that received Vivix ingredient application reduced the formation of AGE proteins 13x more than cells that received resveratrol application alone.2

Protect Against Oxidative Stress and Neutralize Free Radicals

Oxidative stress occurs when there’s an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in the body. This can result in damage to cells and tissues and is a key component of the normal aging process.

So, what are free radicals? Where do they come from? And what can we do to neutralize them? Free radicals are highly reactive molecules. They are formed internally when our bodies carry out normal daily processes. They can also come from external factors, including a diet high in processed food, stress, exposure to environmental toxins, and a lack of exercise.

The best way to reduce oxidative stress is to neutralize free radicals. And the best way to neutralize free radicals is to mitigate those external factors and ensure that your body is getting a steady supply of high-quality antioxidants each day.

How Vivix Helps

  • The ingredients in Vivix help restore the balance between free radicals and antioxidants. The rare muscadine grape extract and the unique ingredients that power Vivix are proven to have potent antioxidant activity. In laboratory studies, these ingredients have been shown to activate antioxidant defences and neutralize free radicals. Antioxidant activity, antioxidant defences, and the neutralization of free radicals all contribute to a reduction of oxidative stress.

Boost Cellular Energy Production

The mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell. They fuel all the functions a cell needs to perform in order to remain healthy, which in turn powers our bodies as a whole. As we age, the number, density, and function of our mitochondria decline. This decline can lead to a decrease in energy production and impaired cellular function.

How Vivix Helps

  • The unique ingredients from muscadine grapes in Vivix have been shown to reduce oxidative stress, which helps prevent damage to the mitochondria and slow the reactive oxygen feedback loop.
  • And Vivix’s key ingredients also protect our mitochondria and help boost their energy production. In lab studies, cells treated with Vivix had a 97% increase in mitochondrial density, they had 97% more energy-producing mitochondria. And as a result, a 98.8% increase in mitochondrial function, meaning their ability to produce energy was nearly double that of untreated cells.
