Quick update...i'm in a rush but I want to get this topic on here before I forget!
If any of you have been introduced to the product Mona Vie please be wary. As the headline says, this product is part of a simple pyramid scheme. While it promises to be the answer to all your health woes, the reality is that it is chock full of refined sugar and preservatives, and it is highly synthetic and processed. While Acai berry, its main selling point, is the primary ingredient, there are better options than this product that do not contain synthetic substances and are not part of a pyramid scheme.
If you are interested in trying Acai Berry Juice then I suggest this product from Amazon Thunder, which is 100% Acai, and it is USDA Organic. Let me state, however, that while Acai berry is a great food, it is not the only option that gives you high levels of antioxidants. Many berries are full of antioxidants, and are more available to consumers. In general the best philosophy is maintaining a balanced diet of organic and local fruits, vegetables, salt water raised fish, free range beef and poultry and sprouted grains. Please be wary of marketers at your doorstep. Nature didn't intend for health to be distributed in a shiny, sugary, glass bottle...
