Discover The Facts Behind The Acai Berry And The Health Benefits Of Drinking MonaVie.
Does MonaVie Actually Work?
MonaVie make no claims that their product can cure, prevent or lessen the risk of any illness or disease. Instead, they merely cite the nutritional value that a drink packed so full of fruit can provide. This, however, hasn’t stopped numerous claims by MonaVie distributors and drinkers which suggest that the drink can cure all sorts of ailments, from the smallest ache or pain, right up to being a miracle cure for cancer. But surely if MonaVie could cure cancer, we would all be taking it right now? So, are we all staring one of the world’s most revolutionary products right in the face? Can MonaVie really cure cancer? Does MonaVie actually work?
Can MonaVie Help Prevent Cancer?
In 1990, the World Health Organisation recommended that everyone should eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per-day, in order to protect against cancer and other diseases. However, more recent studies tend to suggest that the link between consuming fruit and vegetables and reducing cancer is relatively small. Scientific opinion now favours the idea that, at best, only 2.6% of cancers could be prevented by regular intake of fruit and veg, as opposed to the 50% that scientists were once predicting. Further, the study appeared to suggest that vegetables were more beneficial in averting cancers than fruits.
However, many authoritative websites, such as the National Health Service in England, still advise that eating 5 portions of fruit and veg a-day can protect against certain cancers. One of the key elements of fruit and vegetables which gives them this power is the fact that they contain antioxidants.
The claims surrounding MonaVie’s ability to cure cancer all centre around one thing – the acai berry and the antioxidants it contains. So, let’s find out more about antioxidants and the acai berry.
When cells in the human body use oxygen, they create a by-product which can be harmful to us. Antioxidants are substances found in our foods that some people believe can prevent or slow the damage to our body which these by-products can cause. Oxidative damage is believed to be one of the main contributory factors to the development of cancer, therefore if antioxidants can reduce oxidative damage, they can help reduce the risk of cancer as a consequence.
Antioxidants are found in a wide variety of fruit and vegetables, including carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, peaches, citrus fruits, strawberries, cranberries, red grapes, pomegranate, kiwi, watermelon and squash – basically most brightly colored fruits and vegetables! They are also found in fish, chicken, red meats, grains, tea, soy and red wine. Most significantly as far as MonaVie is concerned, they are found abundantly in the Brazilian acai berry.
The Acai Berry
The acai berry is a highly perishable fruit, which must be processed within 24 hours of being picked otherwise it ruins. It is found in the Brazilian rainforest, is purple in appearance, and resembles a blueberry in size. It is high in antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and MonaVie claim that its health benefits have been known to the people of the Amazon rainforest for ‘countless centuries’.
The acai berry is believed by many people to be one of the world’s top ‘superfoods’. Amongst the effects it is claimed to have are its ability to boost energy levels, improve digestion, aid natural sleep, improve focus, fight cancerous cells, reduce the signs of aging, help lower cholesterol, soothe arthritis pain, and alleviate some forms of diabetes. There has yet to be any conclusive scientific proof of the berry’s medicinal powers, however.
Is MonaVie a Placebo?
Nevertheless, MonaVie users swear by the health benefits of consuming the acai berry drink. But the problem with MonaVie is that it often appears to be something of a placebo, or ‘dummy drug’. In other words, those who expect it to work feel better because they believe it is benefiting them, rather than because it is actually benefiting them. Similarly, those who don’t expect the product to work don’t feel different because they are already sceptical. The benefits of MonaVie, therefore, might be more in the mind than anything else.
The Health Benefits Of Drinking MonaVie
But this is not to say that the product doesn’t work. MonaVie never refers to the product as a drug, and don’t make any claims to have developed a cure for cancer. These are claims which many MonaVie distributors have made behind the company’s back, based on wild assumptions which haven’t been scientifically proven. MonaVie claims to offer users a drink high in antioxidants and nutrients that your body needs on a daily basis, and it is certainly true that it does this. Every bottle contains a blend of 19 different fruits including acai berries, white grapes, apples, strawberries, cherries, purple grapes, cranberries, passion fruit, prunes, kiwis, blueberries, wolfberries, camu camu, pomegranate, lychee fruit, pears, bananas, pineapples, and bilberries, and nobody can deny that consuming this much fruit is good for you.
The Truth About MonaVie
So whether MonaVie works or not is really down to your expectations of the product. Many users claim to feel energised and refreshed, others claim to have relief from aches and pains including arthritis, and some claim to have experienced a considerable improvement in their skin for example. These are all results of a healthy and active lifestyle, which MonaVie can contribute to.
The crucial question you need to ask yourself is ‘Does MonaVie make me feel better?’. If the answer is no, then you are probably going to struggle to make a successful business out of it, since it will be difficult to persuade anyone to buy a product that you don’t genuinely believe in yourself. All of MonaVie’s most successful distributors are passionate believers in the product’s health benefits. If you feel that MonaVie works for you, and your answer to the above question is ‘yes’, then you are perfectly placed to sell the product. What you must do is learn how to communicate these benefits to other people who are interested in MonaVie. If you learn how to find people who believe in the product as much as you do, and learn how to turn these people into regular, returning customers, your MonaVie business could explode.
The claims about MonaVie being a cure for cancer continue to be examined by scientists and, who knows, maybe one day they might be verified? Until that day though, don’t expect miracles, but do expect results. Provided you use MonaVie in conjuction with a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, there is no reason why MonaVie shouldn’t work for you.
