Select one of the above questions to find out it's answer.
What is Açaí?
Acai is a small, round, dark-purple berry with amazing nutritional properties. Its appearance is similar to that of a grape, but it has a smaller amount of pulp and a single large seed. Scientific experts have referred to the acai berry as the most nutritious and powerful food in the world.
What fruits are contained in MonaVie products?
In addition to the açai berry, MonaVie products contain white grape, nashi pear, acerola, pear, aronia, purple grape, cranberry, passion fruit, banana, apricot, prune, kiwi, blueberry, bilberry, camu camu, wolfberry, pomegranate, and lychee fruit.
Why does the Açaí berry seem to get more attention than the other healthful fruits in MonaVie?
While all the fruits contained in MonaVie have unique properties that benefit your body, the acai berry has become the “headliner” fruit because it is packed with nutritional value—proteins, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals. It also has a low glycemic index. So complete is this berry that the Brazilian people living along the Amazon can survive on it as their sole source of food and demonstrate amazing vitality and energy. More important than this, however, is the impressive amount of phytonutrients that MonaVie is able to capture from the acai berry.
Does Açaí have a high ORAC score?
Yes, with an ORAC score of 1,027, the acai used in MonaVie boasts the highest ORAC score of any fruit or vegetable tested to date. The acai fruit is the star among other well-known antioxidants, such as blueberries, grapes, red wine, green tea, cranberries, blackberries, and pomegranates. By comparison, acai has more than 10 times the antioxidant power of cranberries.
What does ORAC mean?
An acronym for oxygen radical absorption capacity, ORAC is a way to measure the antioxidant capacity of a food. Foods with high ORAC values are desirable for their ability to inhibit free radical activity. The ORAC measurement was developed by a scientist at the National Institute of Aging in 1992 and has proven to be a valuable tool in quantifying health benefits associated with consuming fruits, vegetables, and other antioxidant-containing foods and supplements.
Isn’t Joining MonaVie™ as a Distributor just part of a Pyramid Scheme?
If, like most people, you have looked up MonaVie recently in a search result on the internet you will have noticed that for as many websites promoting MonaVie and it’s products there is an equal number of websites claiming that MonaVie is nothing more than “Just a Scam” and it’s business model is founded on nothing more than a “Pyramid Scheme”.
The rest of my answer is dedicated to explaining why it is NEITHER of the above. To continue, I will refer to MonaVie as a franchise. Just like owning a Starbucks® franchise, for example. Franchisee’s benefit from the direction and support of a respected and established company, Starbucks®. Selling product and retaining some of the proceeds. MonaVie is no different. As an independent Distributor, in essence, you become a MonaVie franchisee. Behind you is an established company willing to help you grow the MonaVie brand, to support you with marketing material and sales direction if you want it.
MonaVie focuses on two objectives. 1. Selling it’s product via. independent distributors to customers who simply want to buy their product and 2., in parallel, attracting more independent distributors interested in selling it. Of course you can enjoy MonaVie products with no obligation what-so-ever to become an independent distributor. Like other network marketing companies there are no physical distribution centers. Instead, customers interested in buying MonaVie buy products from a network of independent distributors, which we, ourselves, are part of.
MonaVie is often critisced as a pyramid scheme when people talk about it’s independent distribution network, Network Marketing, or another buzzword you may hear; Multi-Level Marketing (MLM). Unlike pyramid schemes though, MonaVie does not obligate you to part with ANY money to become an independent distributor. You simply signup, purchase as much or as little product (nothing if you want) as you’d like and sell it. It’s the core principal of ANY business model. Buy inventory (MonaVie product) and sell it. The real opportunity lies in attracting more distributors. Like any other business you want to attract distributors. A greater number of people distributing your product ultimately means more sales. MonaVie refers to this simply as PV or Product Volume. As an independent distributor you are compensated on your PV so naturally growing your own network of independent distributors benefits you directly.
Isn’t Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) Just Another Fancy Term for Pyramid Scheme?
No. There are hundreds of MLM opportunities worldwide. Building a sales and distribution network is fundamental to any business, but the benefits of MLM over traditional businesses is bricks and mortar. Companies have to expend income on locations, utilities, equipment, staff. With an MLM structure there is none of that. There have been many reputable and successful MLM schemes. Avon, Tupperware and The Pampered Chef are great examples. Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, one of the world’s richest and seasoned business men acquired The Pampered Chef in 2002. MLM’s have huge profit potential.

We are, however, happy to provide you with some information describing the benefits of MonaVie’s fruit juice blend and the reasons that make MonaVie the amazing product it is.
The açai berry naturally contains a good amount of heart-healthy fats—monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Many companies choose to clarify or remove these fats from their açai products; however, MonaVie is committed to only providing açai that has not been clarified and that has higher nutritional quality. The number one ingredient in the MonaVie juice blend is açai. By looking at the ingredient list you can see what ingredient is the most abundant. Most of the time, in other products, açai is not the first ingredient, which could indicate that the product only contains a small amount. MonaVie uses freeze-dried and frozen puree of acai. By freeze-drying the açai, up to 100% of the phytonutrient composition is maintained. Freezing the açai puree also helps guarantee a significant amount of the berry’s nutritional content is maintained.
