SAN DIMAS, Calif., Jan 26, 2004 -- A dietary supplement that preserves the natural antioxidant molecules found in red wine has hit the marketplace. The stabilized red wine extract provides preserved red wine molecules without alcohol, calories or sulfites associated with wine.
The new dietary supplement, marketed under the trade name Longevinex(TM), seals its ingredients in an airtight capsule similar to the way the cork in a wine bottle prevents wine from turning into vinegar. Longevinex(TM) utilizes patented manufacturing methods under exclusive license from Capsugel (a division of Pfizer) to encapsulate liquids in sealed capsules. Longevinex is produced in an oxygen-free environment to prevent spoilage, utilizing pharmaceutical-grade manufacturing practices. The liquid (Licaps(R)) capsules are produced in a nitrogen environment to preserve red wine molecules, such as resveratrol, that may become oxidized over time due to exposure to oxygen.
Longevinex(TM) also contains a natural internal preservative from rice bran (patent pending) which further maintains its stability and shelf life.
Longevinex(TM) provides 15 milligrams of trans resveratrol from French red wine and other botanical sources, equivalent to consumption of 3 to 15 glasses of red wine. It is the only red wine extract to provide red wine extract from France.
Longevinex is a trademark of Resveratrol Partners LLC DBA as Longevinex.
Licaps and Capsugel are trademarks of Pfizer
