I’ve heard a lot of distributors claim that drinking MonaVie Original and/or MonaVie Active “gives them energy.” This is a fairly hard thing to prove as I only know of one way to objectively measuring energy – calories. MonaVie’s label lists it as having 30 calories a serving. This is a small amount of “energy”, since the normal diet is recommended at 2000 a calories a day. You’d need to take 66 servings of MonaVie a day to get the recommended energy in your diet. At a wholesale cost of 80 cents a serving ($20 for 25 1oz servings), this would cost you $52.80 a day!
Fortunately, MonaVie has indirectly proven that MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active do not provide any “real energy.” They’ve released this nugget when launching their MonaVie Energy (eMV) drink:
A significant number of energy drinks are also available in sugar free or low carbohydrate versions. These products provide very little if any “real energy,” since energy comes from calories.
You can find on that on many MonaVie sites. It’s not a coincidence that so many sites have this exact marketing pitch. The three paragraphs that the sentence comes from is exactly the same on many, many sites. All these distributors didn’t come up with the same wording independently of each other.
So if someone tells you that MonaVie Original or MonaVie Active provide them with energy, you can conclude one of three things:
- It is the placebo effect – If this is true, the person should look for a cheaper placebo and save their hard earned dollars. Placebos should cost pennies. For someone to charge $40 (or even $20 when purchased in bulk), is fraud.
- The person is a liar – They are simply telling you that they receive this energy because they are making a buck selling you juice
- MonaVie (and the person distributing MonaVie Energy) is a liar – The material that they are sending out quoted above is false and that energy can come from drinks with few calories (including MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active and other drinks with “few calories”).
If there’s a four possible scenario that I didn’t anticipate, let me know in the comments.
