I Am Immune to MonaVie’s New Product: (M)mūn

December 1, 2009

RC3Global spilled the acai berries on a new product coming out from MonaVie called (M)mūn. Pronounced like “immune,” this yellow-bottled wonder will no doubt “prevent” or “cure” even more illnesses and ailments than regular MonaVie, MonaVie Pulse, or even MonaVie EMV! I wonder what would happen if you drank all four products at once? Would you glow purple to show everyone how you’re jacked on the juice?

All kidding aside, I see a problem that MonaVie, sooner or later, is going to have to deal with. It’s not the fact that the products are getting harder and harder to pronounce — first Emv and now (M)mūn?!? No, the lack of real product diversification in its lineup is a bit troubling. All of the wine-bottle products, MonaVie, MonaVie Active, MonaVie Pulse, MonaVie Kosher, and now MonaVie (M)mūn, are all pretty much the same thing. Sure, they might throw in an extra ingredient here and there, but come on — let’s be real here — it’s still mostly juice from concentrate.

What are distributors supposed to buy? A case of each every month? They are certainly going to be encouraged to buy at least one case to “see how it works for them.” Will they have to start stocking up on product for those customers that need (1) joint help, (2) kosher products, (3) immunity boost? While this might lead to a momentary surge in sales, it has the possibility of backfiring on MonaVie once distributors get wise to the fact that the only real change happening is in the color of the bottle.

    That was a pretty good post, Amthrax.

    Personally, I think MonaVie should start looking to diversifying its product lines to augment the existing ones…

    For example, if I am MonaVie, I would start a FOOD product, something edible in times of famine and need, such as cereals. This will complement EMV very well at the breakfast table.

    What about the rest of you – what kind of products (and at which prices) would you suggest to MonaVie to launch?

    Is there any bonafide unbiased evidence that Mona Vie has health benefits?

    Fruit a Vie at Sam’s club is basically the same thing at about half the price.

    If not, couldn;t you just buy a juicer and squeeze your own acai berries and other fruits?

    If they really want to make money, Mona Vie has to sell stnding orders, book of the month, voicemail and seminars. 🙂

    If they start to diversify their product line, they really have to start lowering their prices. Otherwise, breakfast will become very expensive. Shot of MonaVie, can of Emv, bowl of MonaVie cereal. That’s not very cost-effective for the customer if every product is premium priced.

    Have been using Monavie Pulse a little over a year and Active about a year and a half. I can walk, my plantar facia no longer hurts, along with my bone spurs not causing problems. I have been “down with a virus 2 and 1/2 days in this time. My LDL is significantly lower, as is over all cholesterol, but the Monavie Pulse changed the Ldl. I love it. There is no acai to compare with monavie, as Monavie has all of the patents on properly processing. I personally don’t think MUN will make a big difference.

    You have to realize that MonaVie Original and Kosher are foods, nothing more. After you add the glucosomine and Resveratol (Spelling?) in Active and Pulse the drinks are close to the same. However the massive dose of antioxidants and minerals from the fruits (about 1/2 are almost impossible to get in US) The bodys immune system and rebuilding properties are ‘freed up’ to attack / assist in the healing and recovery process. The juice is expensive, but if you buy 13 servings of fruit at an average of 0.50 cents a serving, that is $6.50 a day. One bottle of juice from a case of 4 is 38.00. (Including shipping and DELIVERY to your house)Over a week that equals to 5.53 a day. You are saving a dollar a day, plus who can eat that much fruit in one sitting? Are you going to buy fresh fruit every day? Whats in the frig will spoil. If you promote the fresh friut at the market to friends, will the market pay you a commission? No matter what you look for in life, this is one of the better ones I have seen. Some people will not be happy, You could tell them to stay home, dont come to work, we will pay you not to, we will send you a check and they will complain about the walk to the mailbox.

    Monavie does not provide “massive doses” of antioxidants; it’s actually quite anemic in that regard (c.f. AIBMR study and Chromadex/Men’s Journal’s analysis). Your explanation of Monavie’s effects on immunity are laughable — sheer fantasy. Your cost comparisons are ridiculous. Fruit costs about 25 cents per serving (according to the USDA). Monavie sells for more than a dollar an ounce and the daily serving of 4 ouncs isn’t equivalent to even a single serving of fruit.

  7. December 10, 2009 1:24 pm

    In answer to your question does anyone know if it really works, I can vouch for the fact that the monavie products really work. I have over 150 people that have experienced awesome results. The product is not expensive, and the company pays soooooo much money that distributors are leaving the other mlm companies by the minute. They can make more money in a year in monavie than they did in amway in 50. Try it you;ll like it

  8. December 10, 2009 1:28 pm

    now there is a person with a better understanding of monavie, I have to say that ten fruits in the monavie pulse are heart aimed fruits and people go to the store all the time to buy one thing for their heart health and another for their joints. I myself rather enjoy drinking a full dose of each juice several times a day. This is food that really has some value in a convenient form. Way to go monavie.
    The new juice is going to be HUGE for health immune system. TOns of people need immune health and the fruits are quite different.

    In reply to Irv, I sell fruit every summer picked off the tree fully ripened. Many diseased patients come to buy fruit from me as they need fully tree ripened fruit. I get so hungry for real nutrients in the winter in colorado. The stuff in the stores is picked sooo green and has soo many chemicals on it that it has no nutrients by the time we eat it. I priced 7 servings of the fruits in monavie that one could buy in stores here, and it would have cost me 42.00 and 12 of the fruits in the bottle were not available here in America. what sold me on monavie is I can drink 2 oz twice a day and feel satisfied, and not hungry. When I ran out for a few days, I bought watermellon, cantalope, grapes strawberries bananas and lots more fruit and after eating fruit all day, was still just as hungry for fruit. monavie is a great product. Live fruit in a bottle fully tree ripened. YOU CAN”T beat it. Thay have the patents on the process. read it and weep, or get some and be happy.

  10. December 10, 2009 1:40 pm

    you can go to http://www.monavie.com and click on the science of the product. there are so many studies on monavie’s products and the acai berry they use from scientific and medical studies they will blow you away. They have the proof. We feel the difference.

    Live fruit in a bottle”??????????

    I’d love to see the process and read the scientific documentation of just exactly how there is live fruit in a glass wine bottle with a MonaVie label on it. You are making statements that are completely false and have apparently no understanding of the thin ice you are treading on.

    MonaVie is a processed fruit drink with next to no acai in it, or the orac scores and anthocyanin levels would be so much higher than they are. Even “Doctor” Schauss’ test reveals that the antioxidant level in a bottle of MonaVie is very, very low.

    Joanne, and other MonaVie distributors commenting here, you need to be aware that you can be held liable for the untruths you are telling about MonaVie. The FTC won’t be give you the benefit of the doubt just because you are blindly repeating what someone somewhere has told you at some time. You may want to read the latest guidelines from the FTC about what exactly you are allowed to say and why. Go back to Amthrax’s front page and read his post about the new guidelines or click here:
    https://amthrax.wordpress.com/2009/12/02/monavie-and-new-ftc-guidelines/

    It is simply astounding the misinformation, outright lies, and full blown stories that the culture of MonaVie is spreading.

    Mike,

    The Anti-Amway kingpins have now transformed themselves (for some reasons) into Anti-MonaVie kingpins… TRANSFORM!!

    Fighting MonaVie and her innocent juice seems more fun than attacking the immovable giant Amway, it seems to them.

    Recharged and issued with a new mission, these generals will be with us for a long, long time, trying to tell the world why MonaVie, Amway or any other MLM for that matter… is wrong, will always be wrong and they themselves are never wrong.

    The only exception is Amthrax, who do earn my respect for allowing free speech on his blog, and speaking with a sense of humour (I genuinely like his jokes! esp. the GI JOE comics, haha) plus no harsh tones etc.

    Not only that, I believe Amthrax does admit that he got his facts wrong when pointed out… case in point – he was once told that MonaVie Juice is indeed 100% fruit juice as printed on the label, and he acknowledge it in a professional manner.

    Thanks!!

    @monaviedrinker

    There are at least 2 preservatives in a bottle of MonaVie. Look it up.
    You can be held liable for the lies you are telling about this juice product.

    You have just violated the FTC’s guidelines by making atypical health claims about this juice, implying that there is nothing in a person’s cupboard that will give better health benefits than a bottle of mostly apple/white grape/pear juice with a small sprinkling of freeze dried Acai berry in it.

    Exactly what health benefits will it give us? We will be waiting for your answer, try to keep it legal.

    Also, you have violated MonaVie’s policies and procedures by posting these atypical health claims that violate the FTC guidelines, as well as not posting your distributor ID number and full name.

    MonaVie is such an upstanding company, a paragon of virtue, that it attracts the masses who cannot follow the laws of the land, nor respect the company they are representing enough to follow that company’s rules and regulations.

    Personally Mr. Amthrax,
    You sound like a disgruntled networker who tried to make money but never could. I would venture a guess because you were either negative about everything, or are just p.o.d. that everyone else may be having success with it. As for the cost, quality is better than quantity. Were not trying to run a franchise of Mcd’s here.

  24. January 5, 2010 7:01 pm

    You’re entitled to your opinion, Ben. I would hope that the people who read my blog — including you — take a hard look at their own business. If expenses are outpacing income month after month, year after year, then there’s a problem. With MLM businesses, there is always a large amount of people who aren’t making back their money after accounting for System expenses and product purchases. If you’re making money, good for you; how about your downline?

    I guess Mona Vie keeps rolling out new products to keep something fresh in the market place. I have read many things both pro and con as to the real health benefits, it really comes down to personal choice and belief, I don’t get into that side of these arguments. As to value, I think it is grossly over priced mostly to pay the various commissions , dream vacations and jet and yacht trips to higher ups in the distributor base. In other words a typical MLM, nothing special once you get past the hype, the less than 1% who got in early and were experienced in MLM are doing great, everyone else is pretty much chasing rainbows and probably will never make anything that remotely resembles a real income.

  26. January 6, 2010 10:42 am

    One more thing, Ben. When you talk about quality, are you speaking about the juice or the bonus plan? It’s disingenuous to say that juice is worth $30-40 when 50% of that goes back to distributors.

  27. January 6, 2010 3:30 pm

    Hi Amthrax,

    Good morning!

    I have been reading this “MonaVie Juice should not cost $30-40 and 50% of it should not go back to distributors” belief often and wonder, then, in your opinion, how much should the juice cost, and how much of that should go back to distributors?

    Indeed, in a similar fashion, if the product is meant to be put on a shelf and sold, and none of us gets to earn a single penny on its distribution, again in your books, how much should it cost, and how much of that should go back to the distributors?

    Thanks!

  28. January 6, 2010 4:43 pm

    I’d start by reducing the price by at least 2-3 times. If distributors are taught how to retail properly with a product that’s reasonably priced, volume should increase. Increase volume can make up for the reduction in the bonus money.

    Here’s the problem. Consumption of MonaVie juice is primarily being done by the distributor force itself. This is why there is such an emphasis on getting new distributors up on autoship, signed up on the Systems, etc. MonaVie pays lip service to retailing, but seriously now, how many people are actually retailing and have the receipts to prove it?

    There are plenty of competing products to MonaVie available at stores in North America. These products have plenty of middlemen (the bogey man in MLM parlance) in the distribution chain, yet their prices are markedly lower than MonaVie? Why is that?

    Amthrax,

    Your assertions are ridiculous. First of all, if you knew anything about MLM you’d know that it’s not about “retailing”… what a ridiculous comment. Plus, you’re comment about mainly distributors drinking it is also absurd. If that’s the case, then do the numbers and tell me how many distributors can drink enough to make MonaVie a 2 billion dollar company after 5 years? That’s an awful lot of juice for a few thousand distributors to drink.
    You, like most who quit MLM do so because they are not “willing to work”… most have the “lottery ticket” attitude and if the ticket doesn’t hit,, i.e. if the work is too hard, they QUIT!!! and then they belly ache because they didn’t make any money. And then they get sour grapes and start a blog to try and discredit a great company.
    Your assertion or someone’s that only those that get in early are the only one’s making money is also ludicrous. My son started from scratch one year ago and is now making over 6 figures…..the reason??? Hard work. period. If he can do it, anyone can. So, that assertion is pure bunk.

    A company named number one in revenue by INC 500 magazine recently and it’s CEO named Entreprenuer of the Year by Ernst and Young ( guess you’ll say those are “rigged” as well), but these accolades and awards don’t “just happen”.
    Have fun with your “sour grapes blog”…… funny that some have no life and have to resort to disparaging a great company and others who are working hard and succeeding.

  30. January 6, 2010 11:30 pm

    Amthrax,

    I hope you would do more market research. A 300ml bottle of brand X acai juice (just acai and 4-5 other fruits added for flavour) imported from USA cost $11.50 in the supermarket here. WITHOUT Home Delivery.

    It costs at least $2.80 to flag a cab and if you flag it during evening hours, there is a further $3.00 city surcharge PLUS 35% “peak hour” surcharge on total fare. If I were to take the cab home to the furthest end of Singapore, it would cost me easily $15. Not to mention that almost NO cab would pick you up at night, so that means you will need to book a cab by phone which adds another $2-3 to the equation.

    Add that to the bottle of acai juice and All of You will see why MonaVie is so popular amongst consumers in this country.

    On the other hand…

    300ml of MonaVie Active (Acai + 18 other fruits + vegetarian glucosamine [you hardly find this in Singapore!!] + esterified fatty acid) cost approx. $22, with Home Delivery INCLUDED.

    So for LESS than double the price, We get MORE than Double the Ingredients and Service.

    Having said that, MonaVie is going to further DECREASE their prices in the next 2-3 months. Already, I know the price in Malaysia (and hence Singapore) is going to basically make all other juice MLMs fall off their chairs. Not to mention those costly health food stores and supermarkets selling OVERPRICED acai berry juices!! 🙂

    I wonder if you would like to comment on this healthy comparison?

    btw, I have a screenshot of the brand X acai juice but I don’t think I can post an attachment here.

    All,

    The real health benefits of Mona vie are very arguable, I’ve read some very pro and very con comments about it, not going to argue that one, all it really boils down to is belief. Personally I think a good multi vitamin and a glucosiame tab will probably produce similar results, this is what I do. As to the cost in the US it runs $146 and change a month (1Case auto ship, UPS delivered) from Mona Vie or around $90 with free shipping on e-bay from the so called “legitimate sellers”, not sure about this part however I have read it runs around $5 a bottle to manufacture, so it it was available off the shelf at Wal-Mart we would be looking at a $11 or $12 dollar item, hence a hell of a mark up no matter how you slice it.

  32. January 7, 2010 8:48 am

    MonaVie doesn’t ship your groceries to you. So, just buy the store acai drink when you go do your regular food shopping.

    How many cases do you have to buy in order to get Active for $22? What about someone just getting started who wants a case/month?

    Who says MonaVie is going to decrease its prices over the next 2-3 months?

  33. Burned Out With MV permalink

    Was wondering are you talking in US Dollars or in local curency?

    $22 USD per bottle is the 12 case bulk order price with tax and shipping in the US. $36.75 USD per bottle is the 1 case price with tax and shipping in the US. Also all the reference to taxi cabs is confusing, what if someone just walks over the the grocery store or drives a bycycle or car rides a horse.

  34. January 7, 2010 5:04 pm

    Ron,

    A nice breath of fresh air comment. I wonder what all the nay sayers do for a living? Where do they get all the extra time to throw negatives? I’m busy being around productive, motivated, outgoing, forward thinking people.

  35. January 7, 2010 7:43 pm

    hi BOWM,

    I was speaking of Singapore Dollars (SGD).

    USD 1.00 = approximately SGD 1.50.

    So everything I quoted can be reduced by 1.50 to get the amounts in USD. MonaVie Juice price is truly quite OK in Asia!!!

    As for taxis etc. it is hard for me to describe to you the living conditions in my country. Suffice it to say that 99% of the people stay a distance away from the supermarkets which sell USA acai juice… And they are the only ones importing them!!

  36. January 8, 2010 10:04 am

    Amthrax,

    As you were asking, “Who says MonaVie is going to decrease its prices over the next 2-3 months?” it just happened. Way earlier than I mentioned!

    From MonavieMediaCenter.com:

    “January 6th, 2010

    I see absolutely no reference whatsoever on MonavieMediaCenter.com in the article dated January 6, 201o that states that MonaVie juice has been lowered in price. Instead, what we can see, it that the new golden capped faux super juice is also very expensive.
    Article can be found here:
    http://monaviemediacenter.com/monavie-mmun%E2%84%A2-now-available-for-purchase-in-the-u-s-and-canada

    Rykel…it would be best if you could actually provide links to your sources, or some sort of proof that your comments are accurate. You consistently accuse anyone whose viewpoint opposes yours of being hateful, unChristian, and an “anti-Amway/MonaVie king-pin”, but everyone of your opponents provide proof of their claims, while you make statements and claims, but do not prove them, cite them, nor back them up. You also make some pretty crazy justifications for the high price of the juice…including cab fares and such. Goofy.

    Something funny that I just noticed…on the MonaVie Media Center site…for whatever uninformed reason, the powers that be at MonaVie LLC have decided to put a counter on the number of times an article is clicked. And it appears that very, very, very few people are actually clicking the articles. Watch the bottom left hand directly under each post. Click the post title, the number changes. Pitifully small. Interesting, no?

  38. Candace permalink

    I found the article that Rykel is referring to, but he couldn’t leave a link for.
    MonaVie LLC made two posts on the same day, they are very similar, with one post having a small line at the bottom of the post about price reduction on MonaVie juice. And then there is a link to the price list.

    Rykel, if you want to make a statement or claim, it is so much more credible if you would cite your source by providing a link.
    Since you didn’t I will do that for you, because it does seem a bit disingenuous that MonaVie LLC would make 2 blog posts on the exact same day with virtually the same information, only one has a very small line about price reductions at the bottom. They should remove one of the posts…the inaccurate one…unless they are choosing to mislead.

    However, here is the link to the “new” price list from MonaVie LLC. It really doesn’t look like much of a reduction in price to me…but I’ll let one of the Pr0-MonaVites expound on how wonderful it is.

Remember what happened to Royal Tongan Limu, Dallin Larsen’s other snakeoil juice company just prior to Monavie? The FDA destroyed it all in a landfill pit.

    I guess it would be pretty hard to stop “Thousands from drinking it” with the pure logic that it is insanely over priced and the health benifits are pretty arguable, hype up claims not withstanding so goverment intervention is probably the way it will go down. Still with over 2.5 million ID numbers issued since 2005 and less than 100,000 referenced on the IDS, of that less than 100 people are making what would be considered good money at it seems pretty bleak hope to me.

    This is what we have in Monavie (M)-MUN

  45. August 18, 2010 5:11 pm

    First, to be as transparent as possible, let me give ya’ll some history on me. I signed on to be a MV distributor and, well, didn’t really get off the ground. Basically, I never put forth the effort required to succeed in the industry. I do admire the company and those who are working the Team version of the MV MLM, to be successful in it requires amazing committment to their vision. That said, I also never became overly familiar with all of the ingredients (kinda reflective in my success, I suppose). However, I did start using the product.

    I do not care what it is suppose to be, I can tell you that the benefits for me have been nothing short of astounding. Some are quantifiable, like when I wake up, I just plain wake up, feet on the floor and going…something that isn’t typical for me. The sleep that I get leaves me feeling fresh. All day long, I have a nice level of energy with no let down. All of these are completely obvious to me and something I can really describe. There are other factors as well.

    I can tell you that just plain feeling ‘well’ is difficult to describe. Not that I felt bad before I started using the MV, it’s kinda like my health has kicked up a notch – again, this is the unquantifiable area. There are many other, similar, feelings that I have experienced while using the MV…all of which I can say because I stopped for a couple of months (it ain’t cheap) and found the let down nearly extreme.

    I buy this stuff on ebay, it is still expensive there…sometimes you can get it for $85 or so a case, which is till expensive 🙂 Anyway, rather than bash it, try it…if you don’t feel the positive effects from it after a month, stop. If it works for you, great…enjoy it.

    I think MV as a company has done an outstanding job or marketing and the distributors should be commended for growing this company. The success of MV is remarkable. As a product, anti-oxidants are simply one piece of the puzzle in your health battle. Even if it is the worlds greatest anti-oxidant, it is foolish to think it is everything. Read the article from Mens Health, it is very objective and spot on. That being said if MV works for you, take it.

    I can personally attest that Monavie really works! I was super skeptical when my husband brought it home to us. In fact, I wouldn’t even meet our sponsor. But, after a week his MS symptoms had improved dramatically! After a month, my energy went up, my knees felt better. I was looking for a surgeon for my knees. Its been 4 years and I still haven’t had surgery and I feel like I’m 20 again! I have friends that also have had such dramatic results from drinking this. Irv is wrong and I don’t care what the USDA says. They don’t buy groceries. We tried hard to buy 13 servings of fruits and veggies as cheaply as we could just to compare. The lowest we could get was about $9.00/day!! and that was finding sales and in season, not even organics. Not only is Monavie not expensive, I get it FREE!! just for helping my friends get healthy too. Can’t get that at Sam’s!

    Before you just repeat what your ‘upline’ tells you; You need to read Monavie’s own Policy and Procedures; what is illegal and legal on medical claims.You are breaking them and the law! You don’t get that at Sams! Good luck.

    Misty, either you are a troll or a totally ignorant Monabot. [Okay, “ignorant Monabot” is redundant.]

    First, as you’ve just been told, you are breaking MV rules and the law by making unverifiable (and totally unbelievable) medical claims.
    Second, you are breaking MV’s “head-in-the-sand” rule and have posted on a “negative” website.
    Third, you are implying that MV is the equivalent of 13 servings of fruits and veggies, when in fact it is an overpriced, under-nourishing single serving. You’d think if you were selling it you would know a little bit about it rather than passing down some lie someone once told you. Also, MV is NOT organic.
    Fourth, MV is not free, unless your time has zero value and your conscience is okay with ensuring that everyone you put under you is losing big money on this obviously overpriced single serving of not-so-nutritious fruit juice.
    Fifth, your website seems to indicate you aren’t the sharpest tool in the shed, so please come back here and explain how frugal and healthy it is to buy MV, we could use a laugh.

    I am usually not one to immediately disparage the Monatrons when they post on here and I start off quite civilly, but is it me or is the collective IQ of these people going further south? Seriously, with all of the information that is now available, this minion doesn’t even have the basics of the product and the company (including compliance rules) down? For shame.

    Mistified, you are breaking so many rules it is laughable. However, because I don’t work for a cult/scam/pyramid I am allowed to speak out against this ridiculous sham of a business. I was iINVOLVED with Monavie for 1.5 years, and I was told that this fruit punch helped with auto-immune disease, joint pain, blah blah blah. I had my own personal “guinea pigs” that I sold to, the effects were not lasting, if there were any at all. The placebo effect worked differently depending upon how suggestible the person that I was dealing with was. In one case, the juice seemed to help someone with rheumotoid arthritis pain, but it turned out that the pain came back full force after a few months and the cessation was purely coincidental. My loyal “customers” (close friends and family) were so happy when I quit because they said they didn’t feel a thing while drinking this shite, and were just doing it to support me and my fake business.

    Now run along and cheat/scam/steal from some more of your loved ones.

    You are so ignorant!! If you knew anything at all about Mona Vie, the products, or the people, you would shut up while you’re ahead. Every line you wrote is a blatent nieve lie. Why don’t you actually do some research, attend a tasting presentation, try the juice or talk to someone who’s actually involved, instead of getting paid to waste your time writing absolute garbage non-sence you know nothing about? There is no “stocking up on product” at all as samples are given for free at the distribution center and the product diversification for it’s quality ingredients and result and testimonials are given. A company does not do billions of dollars in revenue, have thousands of testimonials and win awards and certifications if it isn’t a quality product that does what it’s allowed to say it does. Why are you such a hater?
    Seriously, get a clue moron, then get a life.

    MV is awesome- I would respond, but I will let the experts on this site totally and completely refute your arguments. Haven’t read enough to know that most on this site WERE in MV?
