The following is an email from MonaVie Product Specialist Erica Bryant sent to distributors. I would like to thank an anonymous contributor for sending it along.
One of the things that catches the eye is the tight integration between MonaVie, TEAM, AIBMR, and Dr. Alex Schauss. It’s interesting that all 10 “research” articles recommended by MonaVie have MonaVie’s own Dr. Alex Schauss in them… you can’t get more biased. Another interesting thing is that MonaVie directs distributors to AIBMR as “the website to check when new studies, articles, or books are published.” No one else outside of this Dr. Alex Schauss-biased organization will be producing any “research” as they say “All science and research can be found on www.aibmr.com.”
Furthermore, it’s interesting that MonaVie treats biased “research” on acai, as something that distributors should be talking about. It is once again worth reiterating that MonaVie is not acai and acai is not MonaVie.
Hi, it was nice to meet you at the TEAM leadership conference! Thank you for signing up for product information, science, and research on the products.
For those of you who requested product FAQ’s, these are found in your Virtual Office. Sign into your virtual office with your distributor ID and password. On the left hand side, click on â€œCorporateâ€ and â€œdocument libraryâ€ will pop up below under resources. Click on â€œDocument Libraryâ€ and scroll to the bottom of the page. All of the FAQs (except for Emv lite) should be listed. If you still can’t find the FAQ’s, let me know, and I will help you navigate (email [email protected]).
All science and research can be found on www.aibmr.com. I attached some additional documents to this email that you might be interested in. The Pulse study summary, ROM (Range of Motion) summary and poster are studies that are in progress. The MonaVie antioxidant summary is a summary of the In Vitro In Vivo published study. The aÃ§ai poster talks about the safety of MonaVie Active, and then I included the glycemic index results as well (also available on www.monavie.com from a link).
Here is some Scientific Literature on aÃ§ai and MonaVie found on www.aibmr.com. This is the website to check when new studies, articles, or books are published. Not all of the studies are available for free, some you may have to look up online and download for a fee (copyright law) if you want access to the full study, especially the newer studies published this year.
