MonaVie Emv (Energy) to Compete with XS Gold

April 23, 2009

monavie-energy

I had it all backwards when I wrote that XS Gold was going to be a competitor to MonaVie. It turns out MonaVie has been readying its own entry in the energy drink marketplace, MonaVie Energy.

According to the corporation, an independent blind taste1 taste rated it numero uno against other energy drinks on the market.

And so, here we go again. Let the wild claims about benefits to this new elixir begin, as the drink doesn’t go on sale for another two months. I wonder how much it will cost for one can of MV Energy. The folks at LazyMan will no doubt be breaking down the price difference between MonaVie Energy and other competing energy drinks, including XS Gold. I would expect MonaVie to charge a premium for the drink, as they do today with their purple grape juice concentrate. My bet, however, is that they charge a multiple less (i.e. instead of 10x, how about 2x?), and pass it off as part of the MonaVie Economic Stimulus Plan.


1 I bet their blind taste test involved 50 Diamonds and above (and their children). After several years of chugging da juice, their taste buds have now been trained to pick up even the most microscopic presence of the magical acai berry in MonaVie and MonaVie Energy.

    I’d bet money that Orrin and gang go back to their old DOT STEP program (sip twice eat and profit) where they require their “team” to drink two cans a day. Two years after blasting Amway for being an illegal pyramid scheme, they’d be right back where they started. Oh the irony.

    WOW, this brings TEAM so much closer to Orrin’s goal of being the “Wal-Mart of the internet”. Incredible diverse product line! And so vast!

    Didn’t he say that on his blog a very long time ago? I know I read that. I remember how confused some of his worshipers were when he announced “MonaVie is the answer!” They didn’t understand only having one product to market after everything Orrin has brainwa…trained them into believing. Looks like things are beginning to snowball for them now. 😉

    Blind taste test indeed. I agree, it was probably 50 Monavie distributors who tested it. You could give them a dog turd and say that it was Dallin Larsen’s latest product and they would eagerly munch it down while raving about how great it tasted.

    Looks like Haugen is trying to hide his words about Amway that he made in 2007.

    His and Ron Simmons stuff is being pulled off the web with threats of “copyright infringement”.

    All I can say is that I am very excited about the new Energy drink coming out by Monavie.
    As far as the negative comments about Monavie: If you don’t know about a companies ways, values and how much they take care of their distributor’s, don’t say anything at all.
    Whatever you decide to do in life, make the best of it. Give it 100%. Take care of your team, build up your downine and edify your upline.
    Monavie is based on christian principles. There is so much more to Monavie than the money. It changes peoples lives.
    Me & my best friend just came back from Dallas, TX last month. We went to a church service on Sunday led by Brig Hart. We saw over 300 people saved that morning. That’s what it’s all about.
    Monavie is so much bigger than what people see. Open your eyes. Why do you think we are getting so big? God has a big part in Monavie. Don’t knock it.

    Mike said “We saw over 300 people saved that morning. That’s what it’s all about”. Really? Then why don’t they just get rid of the juice and the expensive training expenses for all their downline. Oh that’s right – they need those things so that they can continue siphoning money hand over fist off all their downline why they keep their downline focused on “that’s what it’s all about” dreams of the ends justifies the means.

  16. April 29, 2009 7:43 pm

    Believe in what you want to believe in as long as it makes you happy.
    MonaVie Is without a doubt a terrific product and has been changing some peoples lives all over the world. Your health is important and MonaVie provides a great source of good nutrition. If your looking for faith find a place to worship. Some groups have added religion to their businesses and others are just trying to share the good word of NUTRITION. Stay Healthy and make wise choices when it comes to your health.

    My intent wasn’t to offend anybody. I should have said that watching the people get saved on Sunday made me realize why I (myself) am in Monavie. It’s a great tool to help others find Christ.
    I didn’t mean that Monavie was our saviour.
    I’m sorry that you are bitter with whatever happened in your business. I think it’s time to let go and get over it and show us what you can do! You sound like you have a lot of drive. Come on brother! Make it happen! It doesn’t matter what you do.
    I am passionate and I am sold out on Monavie. Whatever your passion is, believe in it and your dream. Whining won’t get you there.

    Wow..sounds like a few of you have been burned in the network marketing arena. I think many people sign up for these systems expecting to get rich quick with little to no effort – doesn’t matter if it’s Amway,Monavie, Buying foreclosures, whatever. The truth is, network marketing is no different than your career/job. Put little to no effort into it and your sure to either get fired or starve to death. Look, there are some great products out on the market that are sold through network marketing systems. Just because a few companies screwed it up doesn’t mean that every company is bad. Did you know that franchising was almost made illegal? Look at most restaurants, stores, etc. today and it’s a franchise. This is no different. Oh, and as for the pyramid scheme…..if you have a job, chances are you’re already a part of one. Last time I checked, the president makes more than anyone else in their company, next comes the vp or upper management and so on down the line until you hit the common laborer. In closing, I have tried Monavie and believe it to be a great product with solid credentials. Maybe it does cost $5 a day, but its good for your body and you should be worth it. As for “The Team”, from what I’ve seen they offer a pretty good system for someone who is looking for guidance on making some positive changes in their life through their cd’s and book recommendations. You may think that Orin Woodward brain washes people, but the his list of top books to read mirrors many of the same ones that have been recommended by Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar, and Anthony Robbins. In fact, they also recommend listening to informational cd’s and I’ll bet that everyone on of these people are far more succesful than any of us posting our comments on this blog.

    “You may think that Orin Woodward brain washes people, but the his list of top books to read mirrors many of the same ones that have been recommended by Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar, and Anthony Robbins.”

    If he mirrors these folks and not only are you buying their ideas/books, and you are paying him to get them for you.

    I don’t think many folks are sour on companies such as Amway or Monavie, but understand the underlying intent of what those business represent.

    That intent is to take money from others in the guise of something great.

    Eric, if you believe in Moan Vie, go for it.

    But network marketing is not like a job. In a job, everyone gets paid and everyone has a net gain at the end of the month. Mona Vie, or other MLM products, have to charge much more than other “brick and mortar” stores because the bonuses must be paid out to the distributors or IBOs. Sam’d club sells a product very similar to Mona Vie, called Fruit a Vie, and it costs only $16.89 as compared to the $40 for Mona Vie.

    When you factor in the costs of the “training” that you receive and/or pay for to learn how to build your Mona Vie business, there is a likelihood that most Mona Vie IBOs will lose money due to the training costs.

    Here’s a realistic food for thought. Orrin Woodward was a diamond in Amway. People paid good money to learn how to build an Amway business from him. Suddenly he falls out with Amway/Quixtar and convinces his downline to move to another MLM, Mona Vie. How did he suddenly become qualified to teach everyone how to build a Mona Vie business? Isn’t he starting at zero like the next guy?

    It’s amazind it took Orrin to go Super Duper Black Diamond Crown Wizard in only a short period of time. He just took the rest of his sheep with him when he left Amway. After seeing many of the large teams fall apart when Team became Team Monavie I wasn’t suprised. The attrition rate in the team I was in is unbelievable. I would say that 90% of them are gone and no one is any better off than they were a year ago. The last seminar I went to in December was no where near the size it was just a few months earlier at the same location. Gina, I’m sure you know that Orrin the Great didn’t start at zero. I really wonder how much they are going to charge for the Monavie Energy Drink? I’m assuming that it will be $120.00 for 12 8oz. cans. Passive Residuel Income is truly amazing. Praise to all the Sheeple out there.

    This is some pretty entertaining reading. I’ve been to both Mona Vie meetings and Team meeting and do feel the ‘cult’ affects of Team. Not bashing them, but the people are a bit ‘sheep like’. What I can say is Orrin did actually take a really old worn out business model in Amway and go from Zero to Hero. If he could do it in that business, if “anyone” could get in Amway 30 years after it started and make it to what ever Black Diamond level he made it to, he did something right and deserves props. Now to talk everyone into leaving and going to Mona Vie…give the man even more props. But seriously, if one man can do it…you know the rest, ‘another man can do it’. People are just too stinking lazy to stick with something long enough to see the real results and that’s why only so many people make it. If it was “easy” we’d all be rich. The saying that “only the guys that get in first make the money”…total BS, or Orrin and Chris and the rest of them would be sheep just like the rest.

    Joe, Orrin builds communities. He is a genius at creating a system that anyone can use to build a community. You build a big community you can plug in any product and it will work. Team is a system that allows people to build communities. Products change, trends change, but when you build a community you change with those trends. You build a product business it lasts as long as that product. Wal-Mart is a system the products they have in store are the not all the same today that they were 20 years ago.

    Now that is the truth. Most people, like 98% are inherently unmotivated to achieve success. That is what makes the industry difficult for most people. The workers and leaders get tired of trying to motivate the weak. And there are many that are weak. The key to success in MLM is to become a leader, building up people and getting them to believe in themselves. Developing relationships. Interesting fact: Negative people FAIL at MLM. So, does it surprise anyone here that the ones spewing negativity are most likely ex-MLM’rs?

    Quote- “But network marketing is not like a job. In a job, everyone gets paid and everyone has a net gain at the end of the month.”

    That is SO COMPLETELY not true! I own my own business, work about 70 hours a week (first guy there, last guy to go home) and for the last 6 months I have not taken a pay check so I won’t have to fire my 4 other employees. If I didn’t have money from my Monavie business, I would have closed up shop months ago!

    Prior to owning my own company, I was a sales rep on straight commission, and my wife was a realtor (straight commission also). There were several months when we had NO INCOME (actually we were negative $10k+ from job expenses and travel money plus another negative $10k household expenses), our income was completely outcome/ success based. But that is why sales people and “successful” networkers make so much money, we are willing to BET our skills on our income, and we get paid accordingly. 95% of our country plops their butt in front of the brain drain box, and then complains about the 5% that make it in today’s world.

It tastes great and it’s gonna take MonaVie higher than it already is! You can bash MV all you want, but they are going to be around for a long long time…

    More goods on MonaVie Energy – it is a natural, healthy, long lasting energy beverage of antioxidant-rich super fruits and energizing botanicals. This delicious and nutritious drink delivers a unique blend of ingredients to keep you going throughout the day. Unlike most energy drinks which are loaded with synthetic caffeine and high fructose corn syrup, MonaVie Energy is a healthy and natural alternative that promotes sustained energy for increased stamina and reduced fatigue.

    Carbohydrates and Calories

    A serving of MonaVie Energy contains 170 calories per serving. Most of these calories (about 90) come from the fruit juices and palatinose (60), which are healthier carbohydrate energy sources. The majority of mainstream energy drinks contain empty calories from sugars such as high fructose corn syrup. Fruit juices on the other hand provide antioxidants and phytonutrients with calories.

    A significant number of energy drinks are also available in sugar free or low carbohydrate versions. These products provide very little if any “real energy,” since energy comes from calories. To compensate for a lack of calories, they add a high dose of caffeine and other ingredients that deceive your body and mind. It revs them up, but lacks the fuel to give you power. Your body needs useful calories in order to function. Your brain and muscles are highly active and require a steady flow of fuel. You crave sugar, because you need them to function properly. The key then is to provide your body with the healthiest forms of sugar. MonaVie Energy provides you with healthier carbohydrates and calories to give you the fuel your body and mind needs for longer lasting energy.

    Current Product Positioning on Label

    Recharge your body and mind with a boost of sustained energy. MonaVie Energy features a proprietary blend of antioxidant rich fruits, including the Brazilian superfruit acai, and natural sources of energy. Great tasting and lightly carbonated, this healthy formula increases performance, endurance, and concentration by kicking up your energy level and keeping it there without the high sugar, stimulant subsequent crash. Finally, a healthy solution to your body’s everyday energy needs.

    Enhances performance, Boosts endurance, Increases alertness, Fights fatigue

    Key Features

Proprietary energy blend of botanicals including panax ginseng and maca Added B-complex vitamins for energy metabolism. Deliciously refreshing taste. Lightly carbonated. No preservatives.

    Proprietary Energy Blend
    Palatinose (Generic name: Isomaltulose)
    Isomaltulose is a novel and natural carbohydrate energy source. It is found naturally occurring in honey and sugar cane extract. This unique carbohydrate metabolizes more slowly when compared to sucrose, (table sugar) and maltose (malt sugar). Because it is not metabolized as quickly, energy levels are longer and more sustained. Unlike other carbohydrates that are digested slowly, isomaltulose is digested completely, which means no gastric discomfort like those experienced by consuming sugar alcohols and fiber based sweeteners. Isomalutose is also kinder to teeth than sucrose and is not readily fermented by oral microbes. Recent studies of isomaltulose have shown it can help promote a steady stream of energy over a longer period of time. The consumption of isomaltulose when compared with sucrose and glucose leads to lower blood glucose and lower insulin responses. This means that the body experiences a more gradual rise in the sugar available to provide energy to the cells and a more gradual decline; So the energy provided by isomaltulose is available to tissues that need energy such as muscles and the brain longer than if sucrose was consumed. These benefits may help consumers to avoid the peaks and valleys associated with high sugar energy alternatives. Isomaltulose, is sweet and soluble and tastes like sugar which makes it ideal for the production of the next-generation of energy drinks. Most energy drinks are loaded with high fructose corn syrup and caffeine for a quick jolt, but can often leave you feeling foggy and jittery.

    It truly is amazing how people love to bash a company that is achieving the kind of success that MonaVie is having.I don’t see any other companies out there that have done 2 billion in sales in just over 4 years, with a rock solid product that just flat works. Something eles that amazes me, is that I don’t see people with MonaVie ouy there bashing their competition!! THINK ABOUT IT.

    MonaVie has great posture,great people,great managment and a great product. We have the golden egg, and we don’t have to beg, bash or show our lack of intergity by putting down another company.

    I joined Monavie a few months back. To say that it has changed my life would be an understatement.

    As I come across these different websites regarding Monavie, the company and the products — I just cannot understand why certain individuals take it upon themselves to be so hateful and negative.

    I can only surmise that these same people must have had a bad experience at some level in a business venture that failed for them. By bashing Monavie, they must hope that it will discourage others? If others fail then they are justified in their own failure? Am I right?

    Best Wishes to everyone in whatever it is that they do.

    The drop out rate is skyrocketing, and there are very few MonaVie distributors making any kind of substantial income. Very few as in a handful.
    The only “strange” thing here is that you, and many others, are swallowing the BS, hook, line, and sinker. You and your downline are lining the pockets and putting fuel in the jets of those few elite.

    The ultimate internet troll! Website to website bashing MonaVie! LOL! Everybody keeps saying the FDA is going to shut them down, but how come the only thing you can find on MonaVie and the FDA is a letter they sent to a distributor in 2007???? And that was settled!! The FDA even says that their were satisfied with MonaVie’s response to the letter! Also, I guess since the FDA just sent a letter to General Mills telling Cheerios to stop their false advertising that their going to be shut down just like MonaVie, right? You can disagree with everything you want about MonaVie and bash the product or whatever, but the fact is the company isn’t going anywhere. Did you happen to see the your buddy Dallin Larsen just received an entrepreneur of the year award from Ernst and Young? I guess they didn’t do their research either. Or how bout the fact that 70 of the top 100 and 250 of the top 500 money earners in MLM’s are from MonaVie. I think that says something about the quality of the comp plan! Of course the distributors who got in first make the most money! That’s how life works! I guess it’s not fair that Bill Gates makes billions of dollars because he just happened to be the first guy involved with Microsoft. MonaVie is no better and no worse than any other MLM, it just pays its distributors better! Have a great day!

    The FDA takes it’s own sweet time to investigate and act. When I, and others, have contacted them they have said there is an open investigation going. They are under no obligation to post that or to allude to that until their findings are in.

    Dallin can get all the awards he wants, just like other MLM founders over the years. It doesn’t mean there is any nutritional value in the juice or that Dallin is an ethical businessman.

    And where are you on the income chart with your faux super juice? So much for showing us the money.

    The fact remains that according to MonaVie’s own bought and paid for AIMBR study and the USDA ORAC Table of Selected Foods, one serving of your juice has less antioxidant value than one serving of blueberries, raisins, peanut butter, almonds, one fuji apple, and one serving of plain old concord grape juice.

    Meaning, to hawk your overpriced white grape juice, you have to lie about the antioxidant levels in the juice as well as make many illegal medical health claims. Back to the FDA’s territory.

    You can tell us in 2 years how well that worked out for you. I don’t expect to hear from you.

    Alright, I’m not a fan of energy drinks. If you have to consume these on a regular basis, there’s something wrong with your lifestyle. Energy drinks are not healthy. Period.

    As for this particular one, I don’t see a big difference than with most of the others on the market. They add isomaltulose (Palatinose), a processed sweetner that’s used in many foods and beverages. It is less likely to promote tooth decay. Which, is a moot point, since there is 80% fruit juice, which does promote tooth decay. Also, it takes longer to metabolize and is suppose to have a sustained energy boost. That is only useful if your blood-sugar is low in the first place.

    If you are eating properly, you won’t need sugar boosts.

    Most of the “energy” is from the guarana, yerba mate, and green tea. Actually, from the caffeine from these ingredients. This caffeine is no different, or healthier for you, than you’d get from coffee or a No-Doze tablet.

    At 170 calories for 250 ml (8.4 oz.) that is quite a wallop.

    Well I am Muslim an I distribute Mona Vie. I don’t think that the product is religious based even though some people who drink it are religious. The berries and fruit do not claim a religion so why should the distributorship? Plus there is a certain amount of blindness that is generated when people mingle “born-again” sentiments with a bunch of fruit that is placed in cans and bottles. The fruit existed long before and will be here long after Mona Vie. Let’s not get too crazy about this stuff: It’s all about the money as with any product on the market. Keep it real! No one is doing this for Christ or for free. Instead of getting saved how about some savings by reducing the price so that all of GOD’s Children can enjoy this product that came from GOD’s fruit?

    Which training organization are you affiliated with? Have you watched the videos from any of the regionals? Do you know the ultimate purpose of the MORE project?

    How can there NOT be nutritional value to pure fruit juice? It’s done a lot for me and I’m not even trying to make BIG money, I’m just drinking it. Are some bitter because it didn’t work for them? I’m not sure, but obviously the company and product are good. Read a magazine. . .they’ve been in several.

    “Pure” fruit juice????
    Hopefully you’re more informed on other important matters in your life.

    Many things are in magazines…take your pick of unhealthy items…being in a magazine means absolutely nothing.

    I didn’t get my information from a magazine Candace, and for your information, I live a pretty healthy life. It must mean a little bit of something to be in the magazines that MonaVie has been in. Why are you SO bitter? I haven’t been sick with ANYTHING since the time I started taking it (almost 3 years), and my blood work from my last physical was perfect, and being a type 1 diabetic, that’s good. I can’t give all of the credit to MonaVie, but some of it, I can. I CAN give credit to them for the fact that the results of my mom’s last bone density test shows that some of her bone is coming back. The nurse told her to keep it up because that was the ONLY thing that she was doing differently. . .drinking the juice.

    It’s close to pure fruit juice. It’s natural. Do you think that the foods you eat everyday are natural? NO WAY!! That’s part of the reason people have SO many health issues.

    As for the cost, I agree. It can be a little pricey, but so many people do things that are unhealthy and don’t blink an eye about that. Cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, convenience foods just to name a few. I think that MonaVie can be afforded if people really want to do something good for themselves. They don’t even think about stopping the bad habits that they have in order to afford it. I’m not talking about everybody, but a lot of people fit into this catagory.

    Oh, and I forgot to tell you Candace, I have many important “issues” in my life. Actually, my life is full of them. I have health issues, which I talked about in the last post I put out (type 1 diabetes), and I have 7 healthy children which were all results of healthy diabetic pregnancies. There’s something to be said for that. Diabetic pregnancies are hard, and to have had 7 HEALTHY ones. . .I was blessed, but also VERY WELL informed in how to live with and deal with 2 VERY important “issues” in my life.
