After reading in depth on the subject of the Açai fruit, the benefits and researching all the clinical study analysis, as well as testing the product myself, I would definitely recommend this product. The results my clients have experienced to date are significant since the start of using this drink.
I can‘t say how grateful I and thankful I am for being introduced to this wonderful Monavie drink. It definitely increased results when taken during my 7 x Days Detox Programme and now every person joining my Programme automatically receives one bottle of the Monavie Active.
I completely believe in this product and I, my family, friends and patients have all given me excellent feedback from the drink. I can only say that everyone has experienced different positive results from the Açai berry drink and I can definitely and highly recommend the Monavie Açai berry to be taken on a daily basis, especially the Active range. This contains Glucosamine which plays an important part in alleviating arthritic pain, effectively restoring flexibility and protects joints and bones.

Like the Original, the only difference is that this drink has added Glucosamine, which is especially beneficial for people who suffer from arthritis, muscular pain, joint mobility and flexibility. (Glucosamine is needed to produce glycosaminoglycan, a molecule used in the formation and repair of cartilage and other body tissues. Production of glucosamine slows with age).

Monavie is good for men and women who wish to maintain an active lifestyle and supplement their daily diets with beneficial antioxidants and a variety of nutritious, pigmented fruits.
WHAT IS AÇAI AND MONAVIE
The Açai fruit is from the Açai palm which is native to Central and South America and the Monavie product uses the berry imported from Brazil. Açai palm trees are tall and slender growing to a height of 15-30 meters. The fruit is similar to a black grape, but smaller and with less pulp.
Monavie is the sophisticated alternative to the vast wasteland of dull health products. Monavie offers the healthy blend of 19 wondrous and forgotten fruits. It features the Acai berry, recognized as one of the “top 10 super foods… nature’s perfect energy fruit”. Their synergistic effect reaches far beyond what any single fruit can accomplish.
According to Dr. Nicholas Perricone as featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show and author of the Perricone Promise, “The Acai berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world… nature’s perfect energy fruit. The Acai berry has the most potent concentration of antioxidants than any other natural berry available”.
What are antioxidants?
Have you ever left an apple core lying around after you have eaten the apple? What happened to it? It turned brown right? Why did it turn brown? OXIDATION?
Believe it or not the same thing happens to humans. As we use oxygen to create energy, we produce a by-product called FREE-RADICALS.
While our cells use oxygen efficiently through the process of oxidation, it always causes some type of change. In the case of the apple it simply turns brown and starts the rotting or dying process. In the case of a human with a cut, the damaged cells are replaced with new ones resulting in a healed cut, new skin and may be a scar.
However, about 2% of our cells will become damaged in the process, turn into Free-Radicals, and can start a chain reaction process of harming more cells. The Free-Radicals harm other cells because they are mutated and try to find their missing component from other healthy cells. This damages the DNA of healthy cells and causes abnormalities.
Is the ORAC score for Monavie’s freeze Acai powder really superior to other highly promoted super fruits?
The freeze-dried Açai Powder used in Monavie has the highest ORAC value of any fruits or vegetable tested to date. The highest total ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) for the Acai berry has a value of 1,027 per gram (102,700 per 100 grams) in comparison to the blueberry which contains 260 per gram (26,000 per 100grams) Monavie present their ORAC value for its freeze-dried powder in 1 gram measurements, although other companies indicate their ORAC values in 100 gram measurements, which is representative of a typical size. According to USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) the Açai berry is 500-1000% higher in antioxidant activity than any other fruit, or vegetable.
Why do I need Monavie Açai daily
One of the biggest problems we are all faced with is the external toxins of our environment. External Free-Radical Generators, as they are called, can be air pollution, cigarette smoke, pesticides, excessive amounts of alcohol, foods that are high in fat and processed, as well as, margarine, shortening, hydrogenated oil, preservatives, meat, butter, sugar, white flour, fried and browned foods.
Physical and emotional stress, are also to blame for the increased Free-Radicals overwhelm the body’s ability to produce antioxidants. Antioxidants minimise and keep your body cells healthy.
One of the most effective ways to increase your antioxidants is to eat high antioxidant foods, which are fruits and vegetables. This is why it is so important to drink the Açai berry daily, in order to maintain the sufficient antioxidant levels in your body.
The other great benefits that Acai berry contain are:
- Phytonutrients (nutrients derived from plant material that have been shown to be necessary for sustaining human life).
- Essential fatty acids, (Omega 3, 6, and 9), that resembles olive oil, which has been shown to help combat heart disease.
- High levels of essential amino acids, and trace minerals
- High levels of plant sterols, which have been shown to help control cholesterol
- Vitamins and minerals,
- High levels of dietary fibre and protein profile similar to eggs
Do Monavie products treat, cure, or prevent disease?
Eating a diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables is known to aid in the prevention of diseases and in living a long, active, and healthy life. It is not the purpose of a natural product like Monavie to treat, cure, or prevent disease; the FDA only approves drugs to offer these benefits. Monavie products are made with a specific selection of super –fruits and other natural compounds, such as glucosamine and esterified fatty acids. The fruits and compounds in Monavie have been shown in many studies to help support the body’s ability to protect itself from various ailments.
