MonaVie announced that the product that has been reviewed here in the past will change with the addition of AcaVie. Why change it if it was great before? That’s the big question as all the testimonials made it sound able to prevent and cure all kinds of diseases. By changing it, MonaVie acknowledges that it couldn’t have possibly done anything like that.
What is AcaVie?
From MonaVie, we don’t get anything other than marketing, “MonaVie now has a patented brand of acai; it’s called AcaVie, and it’s the most potent form of acai available anywhere in the world. Look for the AcaVie logo on MonaVie premier juice blends, as it’s your personal guarantee that you are getting the most superior acai products ever introduced into the market.”
How do we know it is superior? Well you have to believe the biased word of the manufacturer. Of course Toyota was telling you their cars were superior too before the recalls.
What is the game that MonaVie is playing with AcaVie?
They are giving distributors the ammunition to talk about AcaVie being patented as proof that it’s a quality product. That is not always the case. There are a lot of patented health products that are never tested and proven to be of any benefit to the consumer.
For example, let’s take this patented ArthriSea product. It is Sea Chondroitin and Glucosamine HCL, and it’s name and marketing suggests it may be helpful for arthritis. However, according to Wikipedia:
Due to the popularity of the glucosamine-chondroitin supplement and the apparent lack of reliable information about its usefulness in treating osteoarthritis, the National Institutes of Health funded a study to test the effects of chondroitin and glucosamine on osteoarthritis of the knee. This multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-blind, six month long trial found that glucosamine plus chondroitin had no statistically significant effect on symptoms of osteoarthritis in the overall group of osteoarthritis patients . The control group of patients who took celecoxib (a commonly used osteoarthritis drug) did have a statistically significant improvement in their symptoms. These results indicate that glucosamine and chondroitin do not effectively relieve osteoarthiritic pain in the overall group of osteoarthritis patients.
[The studies are well-cited on Wikipedia for the reader to verify.]
What does ArthriSea have to do with AcaVie?
The conclusion from the above should be obvious. A patent on a product does not make the product any more effective.
