MonaVie’s Wellmune is Cheaply Available

Comments

Most people aren’t aware of what Wellmune is. It’s a registered trademark from Biothera that (as far as I can tell from the information on Wellmune’s website) is another name for WGP 3-6. I have to admit that Wellmune is a lot more marketable than WGP 3-6. If you search Google for WGP 3-6, you’ll find a lot of information on it. I found this history on Terranaturals. I would normally refer to more legit source, but the fact is that at this time, there’s no information on Wikipedia on Wellmune or WGP 3-6. The only article on Pubmed is is about the toxicity of WGP 3-6 – nothing about the effectiveness of it. Anyway, on to the history:

“WGP® 3-6 is a patented ingredient that contains beta 1,3/1,6 glucan (gluco polysaccharide, a complex carbohydrate purified from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Baker’s yeast) that has been widely recognized since the 1960s as an immune enhancer with clinically useful antitumor, hematopoietic and anti-infective properties.”

So it looks like WGP 3-6 (effectively Wellmune) is really something that’s been around for quite some time. That being the case, you might expect to find it fairly cheaply. I used Google’s Product Search (click here to search for WGP 3-6) to find 60 pills of WGP 3-6 at 250 mg strength for less than $20. I believe this is the amount used in most clinical studies. (Request to readers: Does MonaVie document how much Wellmune is in M(mun)?)

If it is determined that Wellmune is helpful, then the smart consumer doesn’t buy it in $45 bottles of MonaVie that last 1 week. The smart consumer buys 2 months of it for less than half price.

    Hey Scott,
    Do you have a life or is this all you do? is your success based on bringing everybody that succeeds down..wow it must be loney for you.

    classic monavie attack, when you talk about success its a very vast subject, and in your case it does not mean it is helping people. As for this site i would say it is successful in helping people determine the facts that monavie posts including half truths and whole lies, why are you so bent hiding the truth?? why would you call in question someone’s life that is trying to help others including yourself from scamming from people? sure if someone has the money and wants it good, but even if you were just selling to the people who had the money there is no reason to lie or to impress false truths onto others thats just wrong. Not saying you do that but if you take some time to read through this forum like i have you will see many people come around here and think they know about monavie just to prove how little they know. Now if i was going to be in a true monavie mockery fashion i would end this in something like do you believe in god and do you do onto others and you would like done onto you? and question your integrity with the lord for thou have sinned the soil and lied to man for the almighty dollar thou shall be smitten. sorry i went on a little rant but its funny how personal insults are supposed to be taken seriously online, come on man do some research and come back with some valid points!!

    Found some interesting information on WebMD and RX List regarding beta-glucans (the ingredient in Wellmune WGP):

    “The following doses have been studied in scientific research…7.5 grams twice daily beta glucans fiber from yeast added to juice…”

    “Do not take more than 15 grams per day by mouth, and do not use it for longer than 8 weeks.”

    “The potential side effects of beta glucans, when taken by mouth, are not known. When used by injection, beta glucans can cause chills, fever, pain at the injection site, headache, back and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, high or low blood pressure, flushing, rashes, decreased number of white blood cells, and increased urine. People with AIDS who take beta glucans have developed thickening of the skin of the hands and feet.”

    So here are a few relevant quetions:

    1. Does the daily Monavie M-mun regimen provide 15 g of beta-glucan?
    2. Will Monavie distributors be warning potential customers that the potential side effects of M-mun are unknown.
    3. Will Monavie distributors be warning potential customers to not drink M-mun for longer than 8 weeks?

  5. Cindy Says:

    I am writing from the Rome GA area. I was invited to a Monavie meeting to get suckered and did. When they give you the pitch of getting a free bottle to try, and buy another to get in your system; it is their way of getting you in the system so you will get auto ship. We received 2 boxes and didn’t know what to do with it, didn’t want it, too expensive!! I left messages to the up line host that we didn’t want it, and wanted to stop the shipments.. They don’t tell you to keep you trapped in the system.. My husband had been very ill all year with pressure sores, being spinal injury, and had 2 surgery’s in and out of the hospital with hospital bills and medical bills that are killing us.

    Tom Watson, whom was the Mona vie host of a friend that wanted me to try it. Tom said try this free bottle and then buy a case see how you like it to see how it does for my husband and I. After I gave the trial information they needed for getting the free shipment, that they said our information would not be used unless i order auto shipment. Well guess what? With my husband in Alt in the hospital for 2 months we recieved two auto shipments that we did not want. We asked him to come to our home, and to get our money returned, he sat at our kitchen table looked us in the eye sincerely, and lied to my husband and I by telling us strait in the face, Don’t worry!! I will take care of all this, and take it off your hands!!!!! That was this summer and we still have not been able to get rid of it. We have called him, emailed him, and asked him to call through my friends brother that thought I would be interested in this juice, and nothing!! We need the money in a bad way in order to go towards hospital, and doctor bills. I am sooo disappointed that this man keeps avoiding us, because he, I assume, is not going to buy it back like he said he would, but was going to check with someone to see if they wanted to buy it off us first… Well, again, haven’t heard from him. Tom was dishonest and lied to us, I have no respect or patience for this, and it is wrong.

    My advice to anyone who is thinking of trying this to be careful and DO NOT SIGN ANTHING, or you will get screwed!! I am going to try one more time reaching him, and then we are going to take further legal actions to see that this is not done to others like he has to us. I am not a vindictive woman, but if we can not get this settled EVERYONE in MonaVie thinking of trying it, or is apart of it, WATCH OUT!!!

    Telemarketing is nothing more than a SCAM selling products at unreal prices and brain washing you to sell the product. Trust me my husband and I have been suckers for 4 telemarketing program and S_ _ t away money we needed over the years.. Just be careful!!!

  6. Jon Anderson Says:

    Cindy,

    The easiest way I can think of to deal with that is to write “Return to Sender” on the shipment (assuming it comes via mail) and let it go back to them. Call your bank or credit card company and ask for a chargeback – it is clearly a scam, so you should have no problem. They should be able to refund you for all of the charges, but that depends on the bank.

  7. Candace Says:

    Cindy,

    I can’t begin to imagine your frustration. IMHO, I would skip the shyster distributor who obviously couldn’t care less about your health, your husband’s health, or your financial situation. I would go straight to MonaVie LLC with a certified letter stating you want to be dropped from autoship, have your distributorship terminated, and that you were misled and flat out lied to by the dsitributor. I would ask for a refund (wouldn’t expect one), and let them know that you’ll be posting this information and MonaVie’s replies to you on every public forum you can find.

    I would also go to MonaVie’s FaceBook page:
    http://www.facebook.com/search/?q=monavie&init=quick

    And MonaVie’s blog page:
    http://monaviemediacenter.com/blogs/

    And post your situation, with public requests for action on MonaVie’s part to rectify this situation. I would also take screen shots of the pages after you post, and anytime there is activity on the page.
    Public humiliation can work wonders.

    Good luck.

    Wow, pretty scary, because what we were told at the meeting was that some of the distributors are taking it more than 2X a day to feel more of the effect, because it is that good! Well, if others knew what the research was all about they would be outraged, and feel the true effects of betrayal with the Multilevel Marketing Hit that not only is dishonest, but not knowledgeable of the health facts and potential dangers before they market it..

    This is just another part of Multilevel Marketing by brain washing the people to become part of the family and help everyone; when in actual fact they are doing damage to their potential customers by lying about the product, along with falsely making it. They will make it out that this is the Latest and Greatest Health Revolution to the health industry, and is this God All Mighty Savior; when instead it could be a disaster with the side effects they never knew about because the facts are cut out to sell the product to start a Monopoly Factor by the misleading of the truth!!!

    Just know that when a Multilevel Marketing program that sales health products like this, that claims this is such a wonderful cure, and will heal everyone, when they no nothing about the facts, will be taking a huge risk on people lives making them think this is the way to be healthy. This is sooo WRONG putting peoples lives in danger selling something they know nothing about!!

    Thanks everyone for the support and advice on how to get our money back. Although, not sure if the bank will do anything since this was all back in the summer. I guess all we can do is give it a try, and see what happens.. Thanks again and good luck with everyone who is getting the truth out about the Monavie SCAM product!!

    All the best

    HAVE YOU TRYED MONAVIE? WHY ARE YOU SO SURE IT’S A SCAM I KNOW SOMEONE WHO RECOVERED FROM CANCER THANKS TO MONAVIE. IF YOU HAVEN’T TESTED IT YOUR SELF YOU CANT BE 100% SURE IT WONT WORK FOR YOU.
    ITS AN AMAZING PRODUCT IVE BEEN DOING MY HOMEWORK ON IT AND HAVE DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY I HOPE YOU DO TO IF YOU HAVENT TRYED IT, IT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE TO GOD BLESS. MARIA

  10. MonaVie Scam Says:

    Don’t you know that it’s against the law to give MonaVie credit for any medical benefits including saying that someone recovered from cancer due to it.

    If you’ve done your homework, you know that MonaVie is only expensive fruit juice with cheap supplements added. It’s not shown to be any different than V8 Fusion Acai Berry, which is about $3 for nearly twice as much as in MonaVie.

  11. Me Says:

    Cindy,

    Just call monavie corporate. They’ll probably even give you a refund.

    Duh?

    If your upline distributor happened to be an ass, why even bother with him. Why go around bitching on web boards when you don’t even do the first thing that would come to any rational person’s mind and call the company.

    @maria

    You can’t make health claims like that if you are a distributor you could be dismissed. Not only that it puts a bad name to everyone not claiming it is some super miracle drug.

    @MVScam
    The Acai in V8 is crap, and [citation needed] on twice as much. Also, who pays $45 a bottle? When I was a customer I was getting them for $25.

    @candace
    That is scary.. Also, what if you drink too much beer that has that yeast in it?

  12. Vogel Says:

    Me said: “Cindy, Just call monavie corporate. They’ll probably even give you a refund.”

    Right, because that D rating with the Better Business Bureau instills the utmost confidence in Monavie’s customer service skills.

    Me said: “Why go around bitching on web boards when you don’t even do the first thing that would come to any rational person’s mind and call the company.”

    D rating…remember? You shouldn’t be calling Cindy irrational and criticizing her for sharing her thoughts about Monavie here — a website, incidentally, that exists for exactly that purpose.

    Me said: “You can’t make health claims like that if you are a distributor you could be dismissed. Not only that it puts a bad name to everyone not claiming it is some super miracle drug.”

    Didn’t you get the memo? Henry Marsh openly encourages people to thumb their noses at the FDA now, and he doesn’t mind if the distributors make outlandish and illegal disease treatment claims about Monavie. You won’t get dismissed; far from it — you’ll be featured center stage at the next Monavie meeting. The execs at Monavie never made any real effort to “herd the cats”, as Dallin Larceny put it. They sure as hell aren’t herding the cats now. That’s one of the many reasons why Monavie’s days are numbered.

    Me said: “The Acai in V8 is crap, and [citation needed] on twice as much. Also, who pays $45 a bottle? When I was a customer I was getting them for $25.”

    Like you have a clue! We all inspected the shipping waybills that confirmed that Monavie’s acai is pretty close to the lowest-grade cheapest crap acai that money can buy. You don’t have a stitch of evidence that Monavie’s acai is any better than the acai used in V8, and it’s very unlikely that it is, since Monavie uses nearly the lowest possible grade. It’s certainly inferior to the USDA-certified organic acai used in Sambazon’s and Knudsen’s juices (neither of which are spiked with nasty sodium benzoate like Monavie is) – yet Monavie is at least 10 times more expensive.

    The retail price of Active and Pulse is $45. Why pretend that it isn’t? The only way to get Monavie for $25 a bottle (aside from just buying it off EBay and bypassing doofuses like you) is to sign up as a distributor and go on auto-shaft for 10 cases (40 bottles for $1,000, not including shipping) every 4 weeks. Swell idea! Mortgage your house to pay a 13K annual tab for BS toxic fruit juice. One can drink V8, Welch’s, Sambazon, or Knudsen’s juices for a reasonable price without having to go work for the company, but if you did, you could probably get their juices for about 1/50 the price of Monavie. The very idea that someone should have to take a new job just to pay for overpriced BS scam juice is beyond absurd.

  13. Suzanne Says:

    I am saddened to read of these situations regarding this product line. I am a distributor for Monavie but am part of TEAM/Monavie. Our focus is on leadership/personal development. TEAM started in 1999 by Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady and Dallin Larsen founded the product and our TEAM married into the Monavie company and began to distribute this product in Jan 2005.
    I am an RN and have had amazing results with this product as well as the others that I have shared it with. I attended the conference where Dr. Schauss shared his clinical studies and how he studied the berry, a single berry for 15 years.
    (imagine–15 years! Many people don’t stay at their jobs or in their marrige for that length of time).
    Our TEAM does not state that is “cures”, we are not out to “screw” anyone. The product speaks for itself. The Pulse is FDA approved and therefore claims can be made. The newest addition (M)Mun has been recoginized by several well known clinics and currently there are many different clinical studies being done on this product. I love what I do….so many people need a healthy, natural product and there are so many available on the market.
    Not any one product is good for every one.
    Our DNA make up is different. Very similar to any prescription drug, it may work for one and may not work for another.
    I get great joy when I hear from my customers that they no longer need “sleepers”, no longer need “pain killers”, they are off cholesterol lowering meds, off allergy meds, etc…..That my friends is why I promote this product. Too many people depend of the doctors to fix them, but the docs just place a “bandaid” over the symptom (typically by writing out a script-most of which cause liver, kidney, heart, etc. damage). They write out a script, side effects occur, write out a script to mask the side effect, which casuse another side effect and on and on and on….it is amazing to me that so many people take so many medications and their symptoms and lab values do NOT change or improve, but they keep on taking their meds because that is what the doctor suggested.
    Any YES the doctors DO get “kick-backs” from the pharmectical companies just as we distributors do from Monavie.
    For our TEAM, it is not about the money, it is about helping people.
    Dr. Schauss PhD, FACN, is the Director of Natural and Medicinal Products Research, AIBMR Life Sciences and has received numerous awards for his studies. He is not an employee of Monavie. Perhaps researching him and his studies will answer some of your questions. Do your homework and listen to him and NOT the distributors.
    As with any product line and an distributor, too many are known to be out for “themselves” and not the customer! Whether it be vaccum cleaners, gutters, life insurance policies, water purifiers, etc.
    Our TEAM should not behaving in this manner.
    If you run into another distributor, ask who mentors them, ask them if they are involved with TEAM….ask them if they are involved with Orrin and Chris.
    We are out for the customers health and well-being.
    There are alot of natural products out there, just find that works for you.
    Save you liver, your kidneys and your heart.
    If you would like websites to assist you with your research, I would be happy to supply upon request. Suzanne

  14. MonaVie Scam Says:

    However, if you read Dr. Alex Schauss’ studies on the berry, it’s not that amazing. If you read his studies on MonaVie, other juices like Cranberry and Blueberry come out better. When Men’s Journal commissions a lab to test multiple juice’s MonaVie comes out on the bottom: http://www.mensjournal.com/superjuices-on-trial.

    Those benefits that MonaVie Pulse claims are also claimed by a 7 cent pill. That’s 1/88th the price of MonaVie Pulse: http://www.juicescam.com/monavie-pulse-vs-cholestoff-in-lowering-cholesterol/. So if you want claim the Pulse’s benefits, be careful, because it makes much more sense to spend $25 a year than $2000.

    MonaVie is not approved for killing pain or sleeping, so you can not make these claims. It’s interesting that you say that TEAM does not make these claims… and then you go on and do it.

    If you are an RN, you are aware of the placebo effect. Anything that MonaVie appears to be doing is this placebo effect, which is the real “band-aid” over the symptom which will cause people to have more problems down the line (as the real cause of the problem is masked and remains untreated).

    I’d like to nominate Suzanne as the first RN who doesn’t approve of medicine and all the work that goes into making sure that it helping people. If you doubt this, try to get your medication approved by the FDA. It’s not an easy process.

    Actually the government is cracking down on the kick-backs that pharmaceutical companies receive. Doctors really don’t get anything nowadays without greatly risking their practice. You don’t go through years and years of medical school to throw it away on some sporting event tickets.

    Please note that Dr. Schauss is on MonaVie’s advisory board. If you think he’s not an employee, it’s only semantics – he’s surely getting paid. If he’s not, I invite MonaVie and Dr. Alex Schauss to declare that fact. I can’t think of one case where someone who sits on the board doesn’t get paid. We have also looked into Dr. Schauss and his credentials look very, very suspect. There’s a lot more information here: http://www.lazymanandmoney.com/monaVieArchive.php. It would seriously take days to write up posts to do it justice.

    Talk to Ex-TEAMer who comments here quite often. He was in TEAM for 5 years and had hundreds of people beneath him and made no money from the business.

    I have been researching MonaVie for about 2 years now. I’m sure any research you have has been covered in the nearly four thousand comments here and on this website. However, to put it to the test, give me three websites that assist you in your case. Please don’t insult me by using AIBMR’s papers because they’ve been ripped apart dozens of times in the aforementioned comments. I ask that you honestly bring me a challenge.

    If you have some other time, perhaps you could tell me why MonaVie lies about it’s ORAC score.

    Scamman,

    Everything you post you like to stat as fact however most of your statements are pure guess work and opinion…………Stop coming across as everything is factual because it isn’t…….

    Also do you do anything else besides rip on Monavie allday? Seems like you focus on this so much you have no room to focus on anything else.

    One Men’s Journal test doesn’t prove anything, Your comparison product to the pulse doesn’t prove it’s overall effectiveness compared to Monavie…..

    Also she never made any claims she said it has helped people but didn’t see it WILL HELP PEOPLE……..

    What are you talking about with the Placebo effect? Wasn’t Monavie tested against Placebo’s already?

    This post is so moronic…….You can sign up on 2 cases and get the juice for about $32 a month dopey…..Not $45 ok ? Not no 10 cases lol……Talk about misleading people……

    Like Me said why don’t you guys call Monavie and ask them directly instead of hiding out on the internet and bashing them and making up stuff with guesswork and unproved opinions…..

    Toxic Juice lol…….

    So you find something on the internet about Acai being shipped to Monavie two years ago? What does that prove? Who knows how Monavie used it…..You have no clue exactly what they do but you guys love to pass your opinions off as facts…….

    Talking about D rating customer service from who? Lol……Their Customer Service is fine your just a ignorant moron who has the worst name Vogel? hahah

    Anyway get a life man stop complaining about a Network Marketing Company over the internet ……..Loser ……

    Why don’t you attack the drug companies who killed thousands of people with drugs like Vioxx and that Diabetes drug that came out?

    Are herbs and Fruit Juices killing people? Just because some people are making money you gotta go out and hate on em………..

    Haters on this site with nothing better to do than hate………

    But when you on top you attract alot of haters like The Yankees, Duke, Cowboys, etc etc…….Successful Organizations always get hated on by the haters……..

  17. Rick Dirfheppen the 4th Says:

    Also I don’t you can even order 10 cases it’s 1,2,3,6,12 ……You buy 6 cases I think you get it for about $25 a bottle again not 10 cases dope…….

  18. MonaVie Scam Says:

    If it’s not a fact, please tell me what what statements are factually incorrect.

    It takes me very little time to come up with these posts. I focus on quite a number of other projects.

    There are more tests than the Men’s Journal ones. If you read the ones by MonaVie advisor Dr. Alex Schauss, you’d know that his tests back up the Men’s Journal test.

    MonaVie Pulse hasn’t proven the effectiveness of it’s product, so why should I. Pulse is allowed to make a cholesterol claim based on the existence of plant sterols. The product that I found has the same amount of that effective ingredient for 7 cents. If MonaVie wants to charge more than the 7 cents, a wise consumer would require to show that MonaVie Pulse helps cholesterol levels more. (By the way, I love how people call it “the pulse.” I wonder if these are the same people who call it “the Google”).

    There’s no difference between saying it has helped people vs. will help people when you go into the medical conditions. MonaVie hasn’t and will not do not that.

    MonaVie’s test against the placebo was poorly done in ways that I’ve shown on other websites (see: http://www.lazymanandmoney.com/monaVieArchive.php). The conclusion didn’t show that MonaVie had any medicinal benefits and essentially that MonaVie MAY provide SOME of the benefits of eating fruit.

  19. MonaVie Scam Says:

    I’ve talked with MonaVie directly. They know about this site. They have commented on my other sites numerous times. We know more about MonaVie that most diamond distributors. We aren’t hiding behind the Internet, it’s MonaVie who chooses not to engage in public discussion of their product.

    The Better Business Bureau rates them a D rating. That’s not fine.

    Attacking the drug companies for a couple of mistakes would be like attacking airplane companies for a couple of mistakes and crashes. It would be like attacking all people who drive cars because they get in accidents. We have to realize focus on the 99.99999% of the cases where the products work well and improve people lives.

    The problem with MonaVie is that it’s 4 ounces of fruit juice at $1500 a year. This amount of fruit juice doesn’t help people. It’s marginally different than tricking people into paying for air. I don’t “hate on” people who make money I “hate on” people who trick people through various fraudulent tactics into spending a lot of money for no benefit. I’ll pay $45 for your juice if you pay $90 for my special vials of air.

    To get the LOWEST possible wholesale price, you have to buy about $1,000 worth of juice at a time. This price list confirms it. And yes, we are talking about misleading people, which is what you just did…no surpise there…a dishonest Monavie distributor…at least you fools are consistent.

    Yeah, we found two shipping waybills that prove that your company was buying inferior grade acai — that’s what it proves. Are you suggesting that it’s a farfetched assumption that a company, which makes acai juice, used the acai puree they purchased to make their acai juice? We obviously made a logical assumption. Are you suggesting that Monavie has other operations going on that they don’t tell the public about, like perhaps supplying acai to all those Utah supplement companies that got busted by the FTC and rated F by the BBB? That’s certainly possible, but there is no direct evidence to suggest it. Perhaps you have some you’d like to present. If it were true, then the company’s earning claims to date are misleading (i.e. they are based on Monavie’s sales as a wholesale supplier of inferior grade acai, not as a retail juice distributor).

    Rick Doublebagger said: “Talking about D rating customer service from who? Lol……Their Customer Service is fine your just a ignorant moron who has the worst name Vogel? Hahah”

    That’s from “whom” you troglodyte, and the answer is from the Better Business Bureau! Keep laughing fool. Actually it was a D MINUS rating. Surely you’re capable of reading the letter D…maybe not…that would explain why you have to resort to this crap to eke out a living.

  22. MonaVie Scam Says:

    You didn’t mention J.D. Drew, who looks to be breaking MonaVie’s Terms of Service? and has been hampered with numerous health problems.

    Was Henry Marsh drinking MonaVie during his Track and Field days? Wayne Gretzky retired long before MonaVie was around. Dustin Hermanson pitched a total of 64 innings after the juice came out in 2005, before retiring at the very young baseball age of 33. Oh and you mentioned him twice in the list (along with Jeff Bodine).

    I think that all the people you list there can afford the juice. They probably take all kind of supplements. They also have the money (and in most cases are probably given the juice by MonaVie). I don’t see this as any more than just marketing. There are quite a few other examples of athletes endorsing products – that doesn’t make all the products good ones.

  23. Food Tech in CA Says:

    A list of athletes that are paid to say that they drink a beverage is not impressive.

    Why would you care what a bunch of over-paid, self-absorbed individuals drink?

    Does it mean that 4 oz. of MonaVie has a higher antioxidant capacity than 1/2 an apple? Of course not. The study by AIBMR (Dr. Schauss) confirms that.

    Doe it mean that MonaVie helps treat ANY affliction? No. Not a single double-blind clinical study initiated to support such nonsense.

    Show me a list of QUALIFIED scientists that actually will say that MonaVie has a higher ORAC score than peanut butter, and I may be impressed. The fact is, you won’t be able to.

  24. Vogel Says:

    BS. I don’t know about all the other names, but Nadal and Gretsky are not endorsers of Monavie. You better recant that or you’ll get you ass sued…AGAIN!

  25. Scarlett Says:

    better business bureau rates a D in mabey one state…but also rates an A in another. So you like to post information that backs your oppinion but its not necessarily the whole truth. Besides those complaints where probably largly people who wanted refunds because they joined mona vie bought a case and where hoping it was a get rich quick plan, did nothing to promote the business, didnt make a $1000 in the first week and then wanted thier money back. and if you read the reports it says mona vie resolved each of the complaints.

  26. Vogel Says:

    The BBB gave Monavie corporate a ‘D MINUS’ rating nationally. Monavie corporate does not have an ‘A’ rating anywhere.

    The perennial question arises…liar or idiot?

  27. MonaVie Scam Says:

    Scarlett, thanks for the well thought out comment. I have responded to your concerns here: http://www.juicescam.com/monavies-d-better-business-bureau-rating/

    This is an awesome speech….RBC….a little on the lenghty side, BUT well worth it!

  29. Vogel Says:

    Hey John and Suzanne, can interupt your circle jerk for a minute and ask what the hell that video has to do with Wellmune and Monavie? Are you just out to derail the conversation with off-topic spam?

  30. Cooper Simon/John Feldow Says:

    Nothing to do with Wellmune but alot to do with growing as a person and building a business for yourself.

  31. Candace Says:

    So, in other words, John Feldow’s, Suzanne’s, and Cooper Simon’s comments here are completely irrelevant to this topic and neither of you serve any purpose here whatsoever. Thanks for clearing that up for us, John Feldow/Cooper Simon.

    Which is what almost always seems to happen when MonaVie distributors comment online.

    If you’re a consumer looking at buying this juice or, worse yet, pursuing the “MonaVie business opportunity”, you’ve got to ask yourself why these phenomena keep occurring…are MonaVie reps just uninformed and ignorant, or is this purposeful misleading, misdirection, and sleight of hand? And do you want to be associated with that?

  32. Pearman 7 Says:

    Negative minds can never achieve anything of great significance………..

  33. MonaVie Scam Says:

    Which is why you shouldn’t be scamming people out of their hard earned money.

  34. Troy Nixon Says:

    For all the people that are against MonaVie for all types of different reasons, I wish you would tell us what you take for health prevention, or do you? And don’t tell me you’re taking fresh blueberries that originates from Chile at your local supermarket.

    Which company do you work for, or do you? I’m sure I can find bad things about the company you work for, or however you make your money. Will that change anything for you, if I find that? When you point your finger at someone, there are 4 that are pointing at you. I might ask the founder of this site where is he getting money to fund this site, or is it his/her contribution to society? And what about the people that actively run the site? Could it possibly be funded by MonaVie competitors? Maybe?

    If there is something better, tell us (we only want the best). If you don’t have anything better to offer, then your opinion doesn’t mean much. But it better have the scientific backings that you so purposefully try to find that would go against MonaVie. I’ve got something to tell you. While you’ve been researching for 2 years, someone has been making money, and someone has been feeling healthier, regardless of if there’s something better, and you can’t say to someone that has made money and has had health benefits that it’s not working, regardless of cost. I personally don’t get why people are buying 50″ LCD high def TVs, or whatever the new technology and size is, or 20 some inch computer monitors. Although I can list some reasons why they shouldn’t get it, I have no say on what they do with their time and money.

    So tell us what we should buy, and the findings you’ve found about that product. Only then could we have a proper debate.

  35. MonaVie Scam Says:

    I’m not really a big fan of preventing health (as you put it). I’m also not sure where I would “take” the fresh blueberries to.

    Most of your questions can be answered here: http://www.juicescam.com/about/. If you can’t find all your answers there, I suggest you poke around the site for a bit. They have been addressed in the comments from others who have asked similar questions previously.

  36. Candace Says:

    Troy said:

    “While you’ve been researching for 2 years, someone has been making money….”

    BINGO!! And it hasn’t been you or the majority of MonaVie distributors. It’s been the very elite who made backdoor deals with Dallin Larsen, or raided their existing LOS in other MLMs, and brought them into MonaVie. It isn’t you, it won’t be you, but you will continue to make money for those elite less than 1% of the upper level of the MonaVie pyramid.

    Go look at the IDS again, and speaking of that…where is your distributor ID number and the necessary link to the MonaVie IDS which is required by your distributor contract you signed with MonaVie?

  37. Vogel Says:

    Troy Nixon said: “For all the people that are against MonaVie for all types of different reasons, I wish you would tell us what you take for health prevention, or do you?”

    Hmmm…what could possibly be better that a $45 bottle of nutritionally-void low-grade fruit syrups with sodium benzoate. How about anything, jackass! Two swigs of Welch’s grape juice or a few bites of an apple provide as much nutrition as 2 ounces of Monavie for about 1/50th the price.

    Troy said: “Which company do you work for, or do you? I’m sure I can find bad things about the company you work for, or however you make your money.”

    I’m sure you can’t, but knock yourself out Troy. Find some “bad things” and then get back to us, jackass!

    Troy said: “And what about the people that actively run the site? Could it possibly be funded by MonaVie competitors? Maybe?”

    That’s dickish of you to say. Not only is it an unfounded personal attack and a distraction from the “debate”, it’s not even remotely plausible. You should at least have enough guts to be specific in your accusation. Do you think that Welch’s grape juice or V8 is your competitor? They probably each sell more juice in a single day then Monavie does in a year. Eradicating Monavie wouldn’t affect their market share one iota. Your only direct competitors are other MLMs selling snakekoil juices, and our criticisms of Monavie presumably apply equally well to them.

    Troy: “So tell us what we should buy, and the findings you’ve found about that product. Only then could we have a proper debate.”

    We’ve already put those facts on the table, but you know that already; you’re just pretending that they don’t exist. A proper debate is based on putting facts on the table and then discussing them, not ranting about TV sets and asking us loaded questions about who we work for. Your product is essentially nutritionally valueless compared to a few ounces of just about any juice, fragment of fresh fruit, or 10-cent supplement. We’ve provided more than ample evidence to prove it.

    And before you come back crying like a baby about how I called you a JACKASS, bear in mind that it was you who made the unwarranted accusations about us working for some big “bad” company and that we are Monavie’s competitors. That’s not what honest debaters do; but it is the consistent M.O. of dishonest jackass Monavie distributors.

    Actually Troy, there are many things better. Check out the USDA ORAC Table of Selected Foods – 2007. You’ll find dozens of fruits, vegetables and other foods with a much higher antioxidant capacity than MonaVie. This would include apples, plums, cherries, filberts, blueberries, elderberries, babyfood, peanut butter, and many more.

  39. Vogel Says:

    …like melon rinds, lettuce stumps, wood chips, house dust, tap water, air, etc…

  40. Larry B Says:

    I am sure to whoever wrote this blog you have done a very great job as I can see the monavie is being put down and sold within the same site either you are really smart or you have found that monavie was the only MLM juice company that had the most publicity without spending a dime on news ads plus bieng the only one ranked #1 in health and wellness by ink 500. Plus also having the entrapenure of the year by ernst and young you sound like maybe you are a distibutor that is using the most popular of negitive media to sell monavie.
    CONGRATS! oh yea they are the only company to freeze dry the Acai.

    [Editor’s note: You should read this site. You are wrong in every statement. Epic Fail!]

  41. Mackwiz Says:

    One must wonder if MonaVie is such a great business, how is that dumb-asses like Larry B are accepted with open arms? I’m Larry is quite the “entrapenure”, whatever that is.

  42. sherri Says:

    All I’ve got to say is all you people bashing Monavie are really stupid you make me laugh. You have absolutely no idea about their product and it shows! Get a life!

  43. MonaVie Scam Says:

    Yep, all the articles here show an ignorance of the product. We’ll take your word for it, as you bring nothing but insults to the table.

    For those looking for information on the product you can see Drinking MonaVie is Not Equal to Eating 13 Fruits and 4 Ounces of MonaVie is a Half Serving of Fruit
