It's yet another MLM legalized pyramid scheme. You might as well combine your Mona Vie juice with your Amway vitamins and your Melaleuca tea tree oil products, and then you can have the trifecta of money wasting "health" products.

If you're having joint issues, talk to your doctor, lose weight, and go to the gym to strengthen the muscles around that joint. There are no quick fixes.

If your not a healthy eater the Monavie will give you "loose stool"

Some crazy lady gave my helper and I a bottle each as a tip fpr installing her granite kitchen along with the pitch I might add and it did nothing for me and my helper very loose! So enjoy.

Not to seem wholly negative though, Mona Vie is AWESOME with vodka.

It's not exactly cost effective, but if someone gives you a free bottle at a demonstration or something, keep this in mind.

I tried 1 of 2 bottles, which a co-worker gave me, used the green one, then I saw how much they were, will return the red one and give her money for the green one. I think good green tea, gyokuro, is just as good and lots cheaper.
