In case you heard that some doctors are in favor of MonaVie, I offer this nugget from the famous Dr. Andrew Weil giving the “thumbs down on MonaVie”. Here are a few quotes from his website:
“There are no reliable studies on any commercially available products containing acai… MonaVie is an expensive way to get your antioxidants – it sells for about $40 for a 25.3 ounce bottle. That works out to $4 to $6 per day if you use it as directed… Opt for organically grown blueberries, which are more available, much less expensive, and give you fiber as well as plenty of antioxidant activity…. As for the glucosamine in some MonaVie products, there are less expensive ways to get that, too.”
That’s been very much what this website has been claiming. There are much cheaper alternatives that provide you more benefits (read: fiber) and that the glucosamine is not special either.
For those who are unfamiliar with Dr. Andrew Weil, he is well-known for emphasizing nutrition to complement conventional medicine. From Wikipedia, “Weil appeared on the cover of Time Magazine in 1997 and 2005. Time Magazine also named him one of the 25 most influential Americans in 1997 and one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2005.”
One may note that Dr. Alexander Schauss was not listed.
If there is a doctor on the Earth who should be backing MonaVie, it is Dr. Weil. It speaks volumes about MonaVie that Dr. Weil is very against it.
