How VisiVite's Premier Resveratrol Health Formula Was Invented

One of the mysteries of aging was that the French people, despite a diet rich in fat and having among the highest percentage of smokers in the world, lived longer than many of their counterparts living in "healthier" countries. The differences weren't explained by genetics, better doctors, or fewer environmental toxins.

What was suspected was that the French might be getting some benefit from their frequent drinking of wine. And then the evidence began to "pour in" – first in animal studies, and then in human studies. A compound known as resveratrol, a polyphenolic compound found abundantly in red wine and grapes, was the critical chemical in red wine with a myriad of health benefits – longer life, improved heart health, strengthening of normal cells, weight control, better glucose levels, improved circulation in arteries and more.

The question became, "Not what can resveratrol do?" but rather, "What can't resveratrol do?"

Companies jumped on the mountain of research and hundreds of resveratrol supplements began hitting store shelves.

Our customers asked us for the past few years why we hadn't offered a resveratrol product, and frankly, there wasn't (yet) shown to be any benefit to eye health. But that changed when a recent study demonstrated that resveratrol effectively prevented fragile new blood vessels from forming in the retina and even eliminating them once they had formed.*

The study, published in the July issue of the American Journal of Pathology found that resveratrol reduces the growth of these non-functioning new blood vessels in the eye (angiogenesis), the very same process that causes leakage of blood and fluid in the the retinas of some people with vision problems due to increasing age or elevated blood glucose. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis found that high doses of resveratrol helps block the formation of these "neovascular" blood vessels in mouse retinas. When abnormal new blood vessels grow out of control, the result can be rapid vision loss due to retinal leakage.

Here is how they did the study - first, the investigators used a laser to make four incisions on the retinas of mice, thereby stimulating "angiogenesis" (the formation of these tiny, fragile blood vessels). Some mice received no resveratrol, while two groups received different doses that far exceeded the level of resveratrol found in a single glass of wine.

The scientists found that in the two groups of mice given resveratrol, the leaky blood vessels began to disappear! And the effect was much more marked in the group given the higher dose.

Now that I was intent on bringing resveratrol to our thousands of devoted customers, the question became, "How do we do it better than everyone else?"

I scoured the offerings from major manufacturers and vitamin stores, and I was shocked to discover two things:

  1. First, the active trans-resveratrol was coming not from grapes but rather from the plant Polygonum Cuspidatum (Japanese knotweed), which is identified as a "noxious weed" by the United States Department of Agriculture ( Why? Because trans-resveratrol is very plentiful in this plant, and the plant itself - a "noxious weed" is DIRT CHEAP!

  2. Secondly, to cover up the fact that trans-resveratrol is coming from Japanese Knotweed, manufacturers add various red wine grape ingredients in tiny amounts, just so that these ingredients can be listed on the label and the capsules smell of wine when the vitamin bottle is opened - fooling you into thinking the primary ingredient is grapes!

So finally, working with a leading manufacturer of naturally-derived nutritional supplements, I devised my own resveratrol product that I consider to be leaps and bounds above the offerings of others — Reziva® resveratrol red wine extract from French wine grapes. Each bottle contains a 30-day supply.

Reziva® is a concentrated extract made from red wine grapes grown in the fertile valleys of southern France. The name lovingly comes from "Ziva," the Slavic Goddess of Longevity. Unlike other resveratrol supplements made using Polygonum Cuspidatum (Japanese knotweed), Reziva contains concentrated trans-resveratrol, oligomeric proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins and wine polyphenols — just like real red wine.

In other words, Reziva® is concentrated red wine – but without the alcohol! And taking only one Reziva® capsule per day gives you as much resveratrol as 30 glasses of red wine!

Like all of our products, Vitamin Science independently tests every lot of every one of our supplements for potency and purity so that you are sure that you are getting the necessary nutrients.

If you have questions about Reziva or any other eye health matter, send them to me via our "Ask The Eye Doctor" link on VisiVite.Com.

Question: How would reziva affect the immune system when taken long term? I have two autoimmune problems and am hoping it won't cause a problem when taking it for eye health.<br /> Answer: Resiva resvertrol stimulates healthy immunity. However, in autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, the problem is that immunity is overly active and targeted against normal body tissue. Therefore, you are advised to consult with your primary care doctor.<br /><br />Question: I had surgery last week to repair a detached retina in my right eye. I did not have macular degeneration in this eye but have it in my left eye. I have been taking AREDS2 PLUS+ Gold Formula for several years. Would taking Reziva help aid in the healing of this surgery? Thank you.<br /> Answer: Trans-resveratrol, the main component found in Reziva, has shown benefit in several studies in supporting general and eye health, including the delicate retinal tissue.<br /><br />Question: What brand reservatrol was used in the study presented in the american journal of pathology?<br /> Answer: It is not stated.<br /><br />Question: Other sites selling this similar product say it should be white that show purity. Is this true<br /> Answer: There are no similar products to Reziva resveratrol. Reziva is not a chemical trans-resveratrol white powder extract from Polygonum Cuspidatum (Japanese knotweed), but is rather a distillation of compressed French red grapes. Unlike other resveratrol supplements, Reziva contains not only concentrated trans-resveratrol, but also oligomeric proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins and wine polyphenols - just like real red wine. In other words, Reziva is concentrated red wine but without the alcohol.<br /><br />Question: Interesting. so are you saying that resveratol fom wine is more potent than from knotweed. I am trying to find a solution for macular degeneartion fro my Father. So far all I find is Longenivex Any advice?Thanks.<br /> Answer: The extraction process used with Japanese Knotweed creates emodin which can cause gastrointestinal problems and prolonged use of emodin has been linked to an increased risk of liver and kidney damage. Additionally, Reziva contains more than just resveratrol, which might help to explain the &quot;French Paradox.&quot; It also contains concentrated trans-resveratrol, oligomeric proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins and wine polyphenols just like real red wine.<br /><br />

In July of last year, I was diagnosed with wet macular degeneration in the left eye. My opthamologist referred me to a retina specialist near here. When I found out what I had I went to the internet and found your site. I ordered the gold formula and started taking it. I also started taking resveratrol. I have received 4 injections of Avastin. At the last appointment he said if you continue to do so well, the next time we won't treat it just watch it. I had had an appointment with the doctor that referred me to the retina specialist. He looked in my eye and proclaimed "Its gone". I attribute my fantastic progress to Visivites and the Reziva resveratrol. Of course the medical people negate any vitamins or anything but their"medicine". Thank you for being there when I needed you!. Leroy Miller Bellwood, Pennsylvania
