The MonaVie FAQ

What is Acai?

Acai is a small, round, dark-purple berry with amazing nutritional properties. Its appearance is similar to that of a grape, but it has a smaller amount of pulp and a single large seed. Scientific experts have referred to the acai berry as the most nutritious and powerful food in the world.

What is MonaVie?

MonaVie is a delicious and energizing blend of the Brazilian açai berry—one of nature’s top super-foods—and other nutrient dense fruits. Developed with the philosophy Balance-Variety-Moderation, MonaVie delivers the phytonutrients and antioxidants you need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.Where does acai grow?

The acai berry grows in clusters on the acai palm, a genus of 25–30 species of palms native to tropical Central and South America. These tall, slender, and attractive palms can grow 15–30 meters tall, with leaves up to 3 meters long. The prime commercial source of acai comes from the area where several rivers converge within the Amazon estuary, emptying along the northeastern corner of Brazil into the Atlantic Ocean between the states of Para and Amapa. The people of Brazil refer to acai as the “Milk of the Amazon.”Does harvesting the acai berry destroy the Amazon rainforest?

No. In fact, MonaVie is helping to preserve the Amazon rainforest by harvesting the acai berry. Each week, poachers illegally chop down 5,000–10,000 palm trees to obtain and sell a 12-inch section of the palm known as the “palmito.” As a result, the entire tree dies. On the other hand, by harvesting the acai berry, the palm tree continues to thrive and the natives have an incentive to preserve the acai-bearing palm tree. It is estimated that in 2006, MonaVie, by buying the acai berry from Brazilian suppliers, will preserve over 250,000 acai palm trees.What fruits are contained in MonaVie products?

In addition to the açai berry, MonaVie products contain white grape, nashi pear, acerola, pear, aronia, purple grape, cranberry, passion fruit, banana, apricot, prune, kiwi, blueberry, bilberry, camu camu, wolfberry, pomegranate, and lychee fruit.

Why does the acai berry seem to get more attention than the other healthful fruits in MonaVie?

While all the fruits contained in MonaVie have unique properties that benefit your body, the acai berry has become the “headliner” fruit because it is packed with nutritional value—proteins, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals. It also has a low glycemic index. So complete is this berry that the Brazilian people living along the Amazon can survive on it as their sole source of food and demonstrate amazing vitality and energy. More important than this, however, is the impressive amount of phytonutrients that MonaVie is able to capture from the acai berry.

Does acai have a high ORAC score?

Yes, with an ORAC score of 1,027, the acai used in MonaVie boasts the highest ORAC score of any fruit or vegetable tested to date. The acai fruit is the star among other well-known antioxidants, such as blueberries, grapes, red wine, green tea, cranberries, blackberries, and pomegranates. By comparison, acai has more than 10 times the antioxidant power of cranberries.

What does ORAC mean?

An acronym for oxygen radical absorption capacity, ORAC is a way to measure the antioxidant capacity of a food. Foods with high ORAC values are desirable for their ability to inhibit free radical activity. The ORAC measurement was developed by a scientist at the National Institute of Aging in 1992 and has proven to be a valuable tool in quantifying health benefits associated with consuming fruits, vegetables, and other antioxidant-containing foods and supplements.

What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are “agents” that inhibit harmful compounds known as free radicals. Free radicals cause damage to your cells through the process of oxidation. By donating an electron to unstable free radicals, antioxidants neutralize their harmful effects. Obtaining a variety of antioxidants through diet or supplementation is essential to maintaining your good health.

What are free radicals?

Free radicals are atoms with at least one unpaired electron. In excess, free radicals produce harmful oxidation that can damage cell membranes. Free radicals are analogous to cattle let loose on a field of planted crops. Uncontrolled, the cattle would destroy the crops. Ranch hands are hired to make sure the cattle stay in place and graze. Antioxidants act much the same way. As the ranch hands for our bodies, antioxidants prevent free radicals from potentially damaging millions of healthy, functioning cells.

What is oxidative stress?

Oxidative stress occurs in your body when there are not enough antioxidants to counter the effects of damaging free radicals

What causes excess free radicals?

Tobacco smoke, alcohol, pollution, insecticides, radiation, chemicals in the home or at work, and excessive amounts of sunlight are all prolific contributors to the formation of free radicals. Other causes include a high-fat diet, stress, insufficient sleep, and strenuous exercise.

How well do MonaVie products scavenge other free radicals such as peroxynitrite (NORAC), hydroxyl (HORAC), and superoxide anion (SORAC)?

The MonaVie Juice blend is a very powerful antioxidant against these additional free radicals; in fact, the SORAC assay score of 1,614 unit/g represents the highest value ever reported for superoxide scavenging activity in vitro of any food.

What are phytonutrients?

Phytonutrients are naturally occurring compounds that contribute to the flavor, color, and disease-resistance of plants (i.e., fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes). Phytonutrients are powerful antioxidants, but their value extends much beyond free radical protection. Maximum health benefits are derived from consuming a variety of phytonutrients with a full spectrum of colors and pigments, such as those found in MonaVie products.

Does MonaVie use flash pasteurization?

Yes. With flash pasteurization, the product is heated for approximately 15–30 seconds and then immediately cooled. By only briefly subjecting the product to high temperatures, most—if not all—taste and color changes are avoided. Flash pasteurization is preferred to other methods because it kills microbes without destroying beneficial phytonutrients.

Is MonaVie’s acai certified organic?

Yes. The acai used by MonaVie is certified organic through The Institute for Marketecology (IMO). IMO is one of the first and most renowned international agencies for inspection, certification, and quality assurance of eco-friendly products. IMO’s worldwide activities are accredited by the Swiss Accreditation Service (SAS), according to EN 45011 (ISO 65), which is the international standard for organic certification.

How much acai is contained in MonaVie products?

Because MonaVie product formulas are proprietary, the exact amount of acai or the other fruits contained in our blend is not disclosed.

How many servings of fruits and vegetables does the U.S. National Research Council recommend we eat daily?

The U.S. National Research Council recommends that you consume at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day to maintain a proper supply of food derived antioxidants for your body. Research indicates that only five percent of the U.S. population consumes five servings of fruits and vegetables per day.

Where are MonaVie products manufactured?

To ensure the highest level of quality, MonaVie blends and produces MonaVie products at its manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City, Utah (not far from the corporate office).

What is glucosamine hydrochloride?

Glucosamine hydrochloride is a natural compound found in the body that is used to help make and form cartilage. Glucosamine has also been shown to help lubricate, cushion, protect, and rebuild joints.
Is one form of glucosamine more effective than another?

There are three types of glucosamine: glucosamine hydrochloride (HCl), N-acetyl glucosamine, and glucosamine sulfate. Both glucosamine HCl and glucosamine sulfate are rapidly converted into “free” glucosamine in the stomach. So, from a medicinal standpoint, they are equally effective. However, glucosamine HCl is 79 percent glucosamine, while glucosamine sulfate is only between 47 and 52 percent glucosamine. MonaVie Active Gel and the MonaVie Active Juice contain glucosamine HCl because it contains the highest level of free glucosamine.

What is the shelf life of the MonaVie Original and Active Juices and MonaVie Active Gel?

If unopened, both the MonaVie Juices and MonaVie Active Gel have a shelf life of one year. If the MonaVie Juice has been opened, then the shelf life is approximately 30-60 days, as long as the opened bottle is refrigerated. The MonaVie Active Gel should be consumed in its entirety as soon as it is opened.

Are MonaVie products safe?

Yes, MonaVie products are safe and contain only well-tolerated foods. MonaVie contains fruit juices and purees naturally found in the food supply that have been consumed by various cultures for hundreds of years. However, if you have any health concerns, you should consult a physician before starting any new product or program.

Are MonaVie products FDA approved?

There is no official approval process or certificate issued from the FDA to approve the sale of food or juice products in the United States. The Food and Drug Administration, however, has established stringent laws and regulations, called Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) to ensure the safety of foods manufactured and sold in the U.S. MonaVie is manufactured in a GMP compliant facility. The ingredients contained in MonaVie products are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) and obtaining prior approval to sell them from the FDA is not required.

Do MonaVie products treat, cure, or prevent disease?

Eating a diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables is well-known to aid in the prevention of disease and in living a long active, healthy life. It is not the purpose of a natural product like MonaVie to treat, cure, or prevent disease; the FDA only approves drugs to treat, cure, and prevent disease. MonaVie’s products are made with a specific selection of powerful superfruits and other natural compounds such as glucosamine hydrochloride and esterified fatty acids. The fruits and compounds of MonaVie have been shown in some studies to help support the body’s ability to protect itself from various ailments.

What are esterified fatty acids?

Esterified fatty acids are thought to reduce pain-like symptoms and rapidly promote joint health, improving flexibility and mobility. Esterification is the general name for a chemical reaction in which two chemicals (typically an alcohol and an acid) form an ester as the reaction product.
How much potassium is in MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active?

For customers concerned about potassium levels for reasons relating to dialysis, please consult a physician before taking MonaVie products. The potassium level in MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active is approximately 62–66 mg/oz. MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active contain no potassium additives, grapefruit, or cantaloupe.

Is there any vitamin K in MonaVie Original or MonaVie Active?

For customers concerned about vitamin K levels because of blood thinning medication, please consult a physician before taking any MonaVie products. The vitamin K level in MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active is approximately 12.4 µg/oz.

Are MonaVie products gluten-free?


If someone is allergic to shellfish can they consume glucosamine hydrochloride?

Shellfish are a known allergen and glucosamine is derived from shrimp shells. However, people who are allergic to shellfish are actually allergic to the protein troponin, which is found in the muscle (protein) of shrimp. Analyses do not find any protein in the glucosamine hydrochloride used in MonaVie Active Gel. Glucosamine hydrochloride (GHCl), the form of glucosamine used in MonaVie Active Gel, is more than 99 percent pure. Because shellfish is a known allergen, please consult with a physician before taking MonaVie Active Gel.

Why do MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active contain the preservative polysorbate?

To create a blend of water-based fruits and essential fatty acids that tasted palatable, MonaVie considered a number of emulsifiers. The safest, by far, was polysorbate. Polysorbate has been thoroughly researched by the FDA and has been found to be nontoxic and safe at the amounts used in MonaVie Original and MonaVie Active. The Center for Science in the Public Interest (the “food police” for the USDA) awarded polysorbate their highest safety rating.

Why do MonaVie products contain the preservative sodium benzoate?

Sodium benzoate, an organic chemical preservative, can prevent the growth of almost all microorganisms (e.g., yeast, bacteria, and fungi) and occurs naturally in some fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, nuts, wines, and teas.

Why are there natural flavors in MonaVie products?

MonaVie uses natural flavors in its products because a juice concentrate, which contains only the juice from a fruit, does not give you the entire flavor of the fruit. MonaVie’s natural flavors make our products more palatable and balanced by staying true to the natural flavor of the entire fruit. The natural flavor used in MonaVie Original, MonaVie Active, and MonaVie Active Gel is a mixed berry natural flavor.

Does MonaVie use recycled glass in its glass bottles?

Yes. MonaVie also encourages its distributors and customers to take advantage of recycling services in their state or country (where available).

MonaVie Juices contain the preservative sodium benzoate and the antioxidant vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Is it true that sodium benzoate and vitamin C can react to form benzene?

In the presence of trace amounts of certain metals, which act as catalysts, vitamin C can produce free radicals that convert benzoate into benzene. The FDA and World Health Organization have set a standard for benzene levels in water and that level is 5 parts per billion. MonaVie tests its MonaVie Juices for benzene, and we are always well below the FDA’s and World Health Organization’s acceptable levels for benzene.

What’s the difference between MonaVie Active Gel and the new MonaVie Gel?

The new MonaVie Gel has been reformulated to be better than ever. It still contains a blend of the Brazilian açai berry—one of nature’s top super-foods—and 18 other nutrient-dense fruits. However, in an effort to make improvements, some formula changes were necessary. One of the most exciting improvements is that the new MonaVie Gel boasts a substantial increase in the amount of açai. With even more açai, the product’s powerful health promoting properties have been intensified. The following ingredients were removed: glucosamine hydrochloride, esterified fatty acids, and stevia.

Why did MonaVie change the gel formula?

We changed the formula for two main reasons. First, the regulatory bodies of some international markets classify glucosamine as a medicine. In an effort to create a globally acceptable product, glucosamine was removed from the formula. Second, U.S. regulatory laws would require MonaVie Active to be changed from a food to a dietary supplement. As a dietary supplement, many states (including Florida) require the collection of sales tax. In addition to the reasons above, we also wanted to make a delicious and healthy on-the-go snack that could be consumed by everyone, including children.

Will the new MonaVie Gel promote joint health?

More than any fruit or vegetable tested to date, the açai berry has the highest recorded ORAC value against the damaging superoxide free radical. Left unchecked, the superoxide radical targets healthy joints, which can lead to the decline of joint function and mobility as we age. With a substantial increase of açai in the new MonaVie Gel, you are getting even more ammunition against the superoxide radical. We are confident you will enjoy even greater benefits to your health.

Were any ingredients added to the new MonaVie Gel?

MonaVie Gel now contains substantially more açai than the previous MonaVie Active Gel. This means you are getting more of the açai berry’s powerful nutritional benefits. The açai berry is packed with nutrients, including carbohydrates, good fats, and protein. Açai also delivers a complex of B vitamins; vitamins A, C, and E; potassium; calcium; magnesium; copper; zinc; iron; and, most importantly, a powerful array of phytonutrients—age-defying compounds necessary to sustain an active, healthy life.

Is the MonaVie Gel safe for children and pregnant or nursing women?

The MonaVie Gel formula is extremely safe; it can be taken by all types of individuals. It can safely be consumed by children under the age of 12, pregnant women, and women who are nursing.

Why does the new MonaVie Gel now list 1 gram of fiber per serving?

Açai—the key ingredient in MonaVie—is a nutritional powerhouse of beneficial carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. A significant portion of the naturally occurring carbohydrates in the açai berry are health-promoting dietary fibers. With the substantial increase of açai in the product, you are now getting a greater portion of these beneficial carbohydrates in a single serving. While 1 gram is not a significant source of dietary fiber, getting an adequate level in your diet helps promote intestinal regularity, regulate blood sugar levels, and optimize cardiovascular health.
