MonaVie versus Wine

Posted on Nov 24, 2008 at 10:17AM

I owe you about $3000 and a "I'm not worthy" bow!


At one of  our recent get-togethers, I pompously lectured you on the merits of MonaVie - a blend of 19 fruits including the power antioxidant Acai -- and other wannabe MonaVie antioxidant juices.


As you know, having recently recovered from a plethora of bulging disc issues, I attributed my amazing recovery to MonaVie and a generic form sold at Sam's Club.

Very soon after my lecture, I know you all ran to Sam's Club to buy the generic form.

Very soon after your purchases, I was shackled by pain from bulging discs.

Ha.  So much for MonaVie miraculously curing my neurological problems.

Neurologically speaking, I think I need my head examined.

Doing a little more research on this "miracle health elixir" I discovered that there has not been much scientific research done on these juices, and at best, the benefits one is reaping from downing an ounce of MovaVie or other juice blends is equal to that of downing a glass of plain acai juice.

Since most of the wines in which we imbibe at book club cost less than a bottle of MonaVie and since the antioxidant potency of MonaVie is less than that of a glass of red wine, I suggest we toast to our health with a glass of Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon from now on.

As much as I hate to admit it, eating a variety of fresh produce will improve our energy, memory, and mood better than the antioxidant juices.

Now, how much do I owe you ladies for those bottles of "miracle health elixirs" that you will be tossing in the trash?
