What You Should Know
Founded in 2005 by Dallin Larsen, MonaVie is located in Utah. The company is a direct sales company that enlists people to sell the products on commission. Like other direct sales companies, the MonaVie products are not available to purchase in retail locations or online. The company claims to hire thousands of new independent contractors per week and has claimed that sales are over a billion annually. To introduce potential customers to the product, contractors hold tasting parties. Here the bottles of various ManaVie drinks, which are packaged in wine like bottles, are brought out for customers to taste. The cost per bottle is about $40.
Many people criticize the company as being a legal scam because of the pyramid structure and the fact that the company does not make promises as to the effects of the products, but instead allows their distributers to do so. Additionally, of the million or so people on the various sales teams, most are really just purchasing enough of the product to stay active and receive the discount.

While some studies have indicated a possible connection with the consumption of the berry and weight loss, it is far from conclusive and the amounts of the berry in the recommended serving are questionable. If you are looking for a tasty beverage, or a business opportunity, this product might be suitable.
