Because MonaVie has been used all around the world and has reported positive results to many people, it is currently ranked number one in health beverages in the nation. There are many testimonies that indicate the importance of using MonaVie for nutritional and healthy benefits to an individual. However, despite its glamorous reputation, there are skeptics who time and again had serious claims questioning the legality and truthfulness of the claims of health benefits of using the product made by the marketers of the r. Other major queries that have been raised about the product include the pricing and real value of MonaVie. For effective understanding of why MonaVie has this kind of positive image despite the skepticisms in relation to health benefits and nutritional balance, it is important for to establish a profile for the company and also its products. This information will be helpful for anyone who would wish to partake on the benefits of using MonaVie products.To start with, the MonaVie drink gets its name from the company that manufactures and distributes the drink. According to the company website (MonaVie) profile overview, MonaVie is a nutritional beverage company that manufactures and distributes beverage products from fruit juice extracts mixed with dried acai berry powder. Its distribution and marketing (multi level marketing) approach is quite unique and perhaps it is this model of distribution and marketing that has made the company and its products more popular. The company has been experienced tremendous growth since its establishment. Its products have also gained popularity and usage throughout the country.MonaVie Inc. is a privately owned company located in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was founded in 2005. It is a company related to Monarch Health Science a giant multi level marketing firm established in 2003 by Dallin Larsen a graduate of finance from Brigham Young University. The company majors in production and distribution of diet and weight loss products. MonaVie Inc. was founded to specialize in production, bottling, and marketing of the MonaVie products. Prior to establishing his company, the CEO of the MonaVie, Dallin Larsen, had worked in other multilevel marketing companies. He used his prior knowledge in establishing a refutable profile for the company. The company has grown from an ample background to be one of the biggest income generating privately owned companies in the United States. According to - Tony Dokoupil, in the year 2009, the company was listed among the most growing companies. These rankings were based on revenue generating ability of the company and it is difficult to ascertain the truth of the claim given that the company is a privately owned company and therefore is not required by the law to publish its financial information to the public.MonaVie Inc products are distributed by people who are not themselves employees of the company. The company uses a marketing approach known as multilevel marketing where anyone can register and sell the products of the company and they receive their earnings based on a commission of the sales they made. This marketing approach puts all those involved in the distribution of the products of the company in a win-win situation where the company does not need to employ non performing employees while employees will receive more pay with increasing commitment to the company and its products. This marketing approach is also very important for those who are really committed to the company because under this approach after a given period of time, they can stop working but still enjoy income through the earnings of those they introduced to the company, also known as downlines. The more people a sales person has under them (downlines) the higher their pay. This marketing approach has increased interest in the products and distribution of the products of MonaVie Inc. because an individual can distribute the products while they are doing their regular job. This may be the reason why the company and its products have been very popular considering the short time that the company has been in existence.Despite its rapid growth and popularity, MonaVie Company has had its share of problems one of them being regular accusations of the accuracy of their product performance and nutritional value. MonaVie Inc. has been accused in many situations for providing misleading adverts on the nutritional value of their products as well as the testimonials that the use to promote their products as being a able to improve body health of its users. However the company has over the years not taken such accusations lying down. The company has been moving in and out of court to answer such claims. The company has also had to deal with other people and companies using their company name to market their products. One example of such case is the case of November 2007 where MonaVie suit Fruitology of trademark infringement rights. Fruitology is another company which manufactures products from acai berry--------------------
As already mentioned, MonaVie products are made from fruit juice extracts blended with acai berry powder. How then do such simple ingredients of the drinks be that useful as claimed by the company? The answer lies on the contribution of each of the ingredient to the diet and health in general. First let's focus on the acai berry. Acai berry is a special berry from a palm tree found in Amazon. According to Albright E, acai is claimed to be one of the most nutritious and high energy foods in the world. It is found in rain forests of Brazil. The berry has a royal purple color and has a taste of a blend of berries and chocolate. It has a high nutritional value and high energy content. According to Tony Dokoupil, acai berry is rich in amino acids, antioxidants, and some crucial fatty acids. Many people are not aware of this berry because it is not readily available in supermarkets. Acai berry can be found in special food shops dealing in health foods. They are also available in juice form from gourmet stores.According to World Intellectual Property Organisation, acai has a good concentration of antioxidants that are useful in combating rapid aging. Its concentration level is much higher than that of red grapes or red wine. Seeram, Aviram, Zhang, et al
also show that acai has a combination of monounsaturated fats, phytesterols and fibre that help boost cardio vascular and digestive action. Pacheco-Palencia, Talcott, Safe, Mertens-Talcott add that acai has a good amount of useful amino acids combined with trace minerals which are needed for proper muscle functioning and regeneration. The fatty acids in acai is comparable to that of olive oil which is rich in monounsaturated oleic acids which help cell membranes to be more supple to aid in proper functioning of hormone and insulin receptors in the body. This also explains why the berry is important in reducing aging as high insulin levels in the body encourages inflammations which in turn induce early growth. It should be noted that acai berry is only one of the ingredients that is common in many of the MonaVie products. There are many other ingredients used in the manufacture of the MonaVie products which all act in different ways to boost health and for other myriad nutritional benefits. They include white grape, nashi pear, kiwi, cranberry, bananas, wolfberry, passion fruit and many other types of fruits.The different fruit extracts that are blended produce different MonaVie drinks. Each of these drinks is carefully blended to produce unique products that with the aim of meeting the various nutritional and health needs of the body. Given that there are many nutritional and health boost needed by the body, there are equally different types of MonaVie products which help the body in different special ways. Following is a focus on some of these products and how each of them is useful to the body.
First is the MonaVie EMV. According to ManaVie product website, this product is a carbonated drink made from a blend of antioxidant and high energy fruits with of course acai being the key ingredient. This product is aimed at increasing the energy level in the body to improve performance, physical endurance as well as concentration and alertness. This product is designed to be an alternative of the regular energy boosting drinks with the benefit of no worry of side effects associated with traditional energy drinks. This is because MonaVie EMV does not contain any synthetic stimulants which may be common in some of energy drinks. MonaVie EMV has the benefit of giving the quick energy supplement for anyone who is feeling weak. It also has the advantage of providing long lasting energy effect compared to other drinks which wears off immediately and makes the user weak shortly after consumption.

This then gives MonaVie EMV an upper hand as it boosts energy at the same time making the body healthy. MonaVie EMV does not contain artificial sweeteners and food colors.
