So its easy to see why the muscadine grape is called the super grape; check out the size of it.  Looks more like a small plum than a grape!  Another difference is standard grapes have 19 pairs of chromosomes, the muscadine grape has 20 pairs.  While the fact that muscadines have 1 more pair of chomosomes is interesting trivia, the real excitement comes from the change in phytochemicals and nutrients that those extra chromosomes bring about.

Muscadine Grapes will only grow in the hot, humid conditions of the American SouthEast.  They thrive in climates that would kill most standard grapes.  This makes the muscadine grape stronger and more packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients than any other grape.  Phytonutrients and antioxidants are natures way of protecting a fruit.  In order to survive, Muscadines had to develop a very high level of these beneficial phytonutrients.

Muscadine Grapes Have:

6 times the Resveratrol content of regular red grapes (more on Resveratrol in a later post)
The only grape to contain Ellagic Acid (more on this in a later post)
High Quercetin levels (a very beneficial flavonoid)
40 times higher antioxidant levels than standard red grapes
Why is it important that Shaklee uses a whole fruit pomace of the Muscadine Grape in Vivix?  Because most of the Ellagic Acid and healthy phytochemicals are in the tough skin of this grape, and almost all of the Resveratrol is in the seeds.  The pulp also contains many healthy nutrients, so its important that to get all the health benefits of this superfruit, you use the entire grape.  The Scientists at Shaklee have developed a proprietary whole fruit extraction process, protected by multiple patents, that delivers this full spectrum of concentrated polyphenols from this rare grape.  To date, Shaklee is the only major wellness company utilizing a whole muscadine grape extract in an anti-aging product.  To ensure that Shaklee can deliver the exclusive benefits of this rare grape, they have contracted for the entire output of the largest and best growers of muscadine grapes for the next 20 years, all to provide you with the world’s best, most clinically tested, cellular anti-aging tonic on the market today.
