Share Article

Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and their companies have filed a lawsuit against a long list of companies using thier names and images to market nutritional supplements based on Resveratrol and other nutraceutical ingredients. Vinomis Laboratories applauds this effort to shut down deceptive practices which hurt our entire industry.

We applaud Ms. Winfrey and Dr. Oz for investigating and taking this action

It has come to the attention of Vinomis Laboratories that certain companies, not including Vinomis have been named in a lawsuit from Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Mehmet Oz concerning unauthorized and potentially illegal use of their names in the marketing and supposed endorsements of nutraceutical supplement products. Vinomis is not named in the lawsuit, and does not practice the kind of marketing techniques outlined in Ms. Winfrey's and Dr. Oz's lawsuit. (Case 1:09-cv-07297-DAB in the Southern District of New York)

"We applaud Ms. Winfrey and Dr. Oz for investigating and taking this action," said Mark Juliano, President and CEO of Vinomis Laboratories. "These types of marketing activities tarnish the whole industry, and are delighted that Ms. Winfrey and Dr. Oz have decided to take strong action."
Resveratrol, fish oils, Acai berries, and other nutraceuticals mentioned in the lawsuit do possess many positive health benefits. There is no need to use deceptive marketing tactics, as the products and scientific studies speak for themselves.

"Vinomis uses no celebrity endorsements in its marketing," commented Barry Yarkoni, Marketing Vice President, "Our endorsements are from doctors, patients, researchers, and customers."

Vinomis maintains a "co-compromise" approach to product quality, and complements this with honesty and openness in its marketing activities. For example, the quantity of Resveratrol in Vindure 900 is conservatively stated on the Supplement Facts label. While there is actually 428mg of polygonum cuspidatum extract, the product label lists only 400mg of pure trans-Resveratrol to compensate for the 98% purity, and allowing for a long shelf life.

The Vinomis Red Wine Extract contains over 90% polyphenols. Testing performed at Brunswick Laboratories, determined an ORAC value of 19,638 per tablet. The manufacturing plant where Vindure is produced is FDA, TGA, USP, and NSF certified. All the ingredients used in our products have been tested in human clinical trials.

The Vinomis website is accurate and straightforward. The home page, and other pages, list the precise ingredients contained in our products, and the full Supplement Facts label is available for viewing. Each web page contains contact information including the Vinomis toll-free phone number (877-484-6664) and email address (
The founders of Vinomis Laboratories are doctors, university professors, and former executives of major Fortune 500 companies in the nutraceutical, consumer products, and technology industries.

Vindure is available through the company's website at, and through a network of retailers and medical professionals who are recommending Vindure to patients. Vindure 900 includes pure Resveratrol, Quercetin, and red wine grape extract from Bordeaux.
