I have read various comments from distributors that try to compare MonaVie to Aspirin and/or Tylenol. It usually goes a little something like this:
Scott – Aspirin is used to treat pains and for head aches some people swear buy it, it doesn’t do a thing for me, I guess I should call everyone who says it works for them a liar making false claims. (source)
#91 – Damian – “There are people who take Tylenol…and it does nothing for them. Then they take Advil and it does wonders…does that make Tylenol a scam?” (source)
#259 – Damian – “…Tylenol doesn’t work for me… Advil does.” (source)
#1237 – MonaVieUser – “If I get a headache with is very rare, Tylenol doesn’t work for me, but I guess it works for some people…” (source)
(Spelling corrected in the above quotes for readability.)
Notice how similar these all sound. It’s almost like a script. In fact, we even have Damian projecting the Tylenol/Advil argument as something that others experience… and then he turns around and says that it doesn’t do anything for him personally. It does sound like someone who confused a script.
Here’s the problem with the argument… Aspirin has been clinically proven. It has treat pains and headaches in billions of cases over dozens of years. I have never met a person who it didn’t help – nor heard of someone it didn’t help (except for MonaVie distributors). I’m sure there might be some out there and these people might be in the 0.001% who are like that. In my opinion, it’s extremely unlikely that they’d all wind up selling MonaVie.
MonaVie has not been clinically proven to even help treat pains or headaches of one person more than a placebo would. Since people spend billions more aspirin than on MonaVie a year, one would think that MonaVie could prove that it helps people with pains and headaches, they would. Then they could put an all-powerful thing on the label saying that it’s been shown to help that medical condition. It would mean 10x more money for MonaVie and their distributors almost overnight. Yet MonaVie can’t put their money into running those tests?
It’s another case where MonaVie distributors are trying to get people to think of MonaVie in a medicine light. In fact, the name MonaVieUser, is another attempt at that. People don’t talk about food and drink as “using it.” One would expect him call himself MonaVieDrinker. It’s a good use of Doublespeak to try to subtly confuse people.
