I've been reading about this super berry. Is it all hype, is it safe, have you tried it, what is a good source for buying the product? Any information you could give me would be helpful. My husband and I have started on a "healthy journey" with food, exercise, and new activities.
I was wondering if this is worth adding, too! Thanks for your input. You moms are always wonderful and I value your advice. Please send your words of wisdom and personal stories.

I was given a free bottle of Monavie. Didn't think it did anything. I was disappointed. Thought it was quite expensive too.

Tried it, didnt' really work. the "free" trial charged me if I didn't return it in 15 days and then would go into a recurring billing ($100./month) until canceled.

Hi L. -

Congratulations on adding such healthy habits to your world! My husband and I and entire family for that matter, have done the same as well. With the whole acai craze I was so confused and I didn't know where to go. I looked up all the juices, the independent ones, the ones at Costco and the regular grocery stores, the pills, etc. The only one I fell in love with was a juice called Monavie. I learned that it has a patent pending because of the way they pick and process the berry and that it is the only juice out there that is 100% juice - nothing else. Plus, they have a wonderful organization, the MORE project, where they give back to the people and children on brazil, the place they get this wonderful berry. They have done some phenominal things! I take 2, 2 oz. shots of Monavie a day, that is equivalent to 13 servings of fruit and vegetables a day! Plus, the one I take also has liquid form of glucosamine in it, so it has tremendously helped my joints in my efforts to begin a workout regimine again. Also, because of the 19 different fruits it contains, the natural anti-imflamatories are awesome! I hardly bloat on my 'time-of-the-month' week, my skin is awesome because of the anti-oxidants as well. I can't tell you how much I am grateful I was introduced to Monavie. Even Jenny McArthy has endorsed it in her new book and gives it to her son, Oprah, it was on that show
I loved it so much that I became a distributor for it, and now my entire family is enjoying the benefits of this great juice. If you want more information, you call me at ###-###-#### and I would love to have you taste it!

I ordered the "free" trial of acai berry and body cleanse, got the acai berry (a month after i ordered it) and never got the second. I tried to cancel the product, kept calling the only number that I had and was not having any luck. finaly got thru at 5 in the morning. the body cleanse could never get through so i had to call my credit card and close that account for unauthorized charges. the monavi is a drink that you take a shot glass size in the morning and one in the evening. The product comes in a wine bottle package, It does take a little time to notice any change but the great thing is you can sign up to be a distrubtor. and if you sign up people under you, you could get a discount on some of the product and if they sell the product you make a commission off of their sells. This product helps fight hunger, helps with your joints and make you feel good. I think this might be a better choice.

Hi L.,

YES!!!.... the Acai Berry is amazing!! My family can't live without it! We would love to share our success stories with you and we have many of them!! Please visit our web-site: www.blessyourheartnow.com and go to Products and V-3 and read about the "Mistica" product and the benefits! I would be very careful with the pills - I believe liquid is going to be your better source from what I've read. Dr. Norm Shealy, MD is on our Medical Advisory Board and put our juice to the test with about 5 others on the market - I can send you the comparison charts from the independent lab. Ours passed with flying colors on all 5 categories!! Please look at these before you purchase - just so you know that there is a difference in quality. Please e-mail me at [email protected]____.com and I will forward you some helpful information. I can offer you the Mistica for wholesale if you are interested and give you a 90 day money back guarantee!! Not many companies do that! Looking forward to sending you information! Cheers to your health!! B. ###-###-#### - please call if you have any questions!

I actually just started today! I have read nothing but good things about them, but there are some that they claim don't work because there's not enough of the berry in the pill. I just googled ACAI BERRY and lots of reasearch comes up. I found the ACAI BERRY SUPREME got good reviews, and I got a 60 pill bottle for free on their website! I only paid 5.95 shipping for them. I also read that if you take it with a pill call Slim X it works even better. I also got a free 60 day bottle from their website and paid 5.95 shipping. Good look on your health journey!!!

I was introduced to this new product by someone and was skeptical, but thought I'd give it a chance. My husband started taking it. He noticed a difference immediatly! I noticed a difference after a couple of days. We have been on the product for 2 months and feel better. Its not about losing weight and the compnay doesn't advertise that, but to maintain you overall health. My Husband claims he sleeps better, his feet and back don't hurt and he has the energy to continue with what he is doing. Before he would come home from work and not want to do anything!
I feel better. I am usually sick with several colds during this time of year. I have not been sick since I've been taking the product. This product would work well with your "Health journey" a little pricey, but my husband rather cut cost on groceries, latte's, etc. to have this product. Also he doesn't take his allergy or asthma medicaton as often. Hopefully it will justify the cost of OTC medicine in the long run.
I don't think I can name the product, but you can call me or email me and I can give you more information. ###-###-####

Hi L.,

I tried the free 15 day sample of the Acai Berry stuff. It's the one that was "recommended" by Rachel Ray. I am not impressed. (I have been using them for 3 weeks) Haven't seen much of a difference. My biggest problem is that when you sign up for the free sample, you have to give your info so you will be charged 60 dollars the next month for a full bottle if you don't cancel.

I got my new bottle and was charged because I couldn't get through to cancel. It took me 3 weeks to FINALLY get through to customer service. I was on hold for an average of an hour everyday. I finally had to call on my phone, my cell phone and my hubby cell so we could all hold together, hoping one phone would get through. I went to the website and sent emails (five total). I didn't get a single response.

Sorry for the rant. I am saying that if you try it...do research. I read "ratings" that said these were the best but the customer service totally turned me off. Maybe there is someting at GNC or at an all natural market or something. Good Luck!

There are so many "super juices" out there now. I think most of them are good as they find foods in nature that have vitamins and minerals. Men's Journal, in their Dec. 2008 issue, chose VEMMA as the best of those out there. Dr. Oz (of Oprah fame) said in Esquire Magazine (March 2008) that VEMMA was "the best multivitamin for a man under 60." We have been using it for over a year and don't have many health issues. I believe it is because we are taking what our body needs everyday. I can give you a free bottle to sample to see if you like the taste. You just take 2 oz. every morning. Congrats on your decision to be healthy! ###-###-####

I haven't tried it, however Shaklee has come up with a product similar and it is true and tested. Vivix is like drinking 80 glasses of wine a day. It is an amazing product. Take a look at the website: www.shaklee.net/denisefriedl/vivix to see what it does! It is 100% natural, organic, and never tested on animals. I hope this helps you in your journey to better wellness!
