The MonaVie EMV Efficacy Study


A recent study showed that MonaVie EMV is a healthy alternative to many of the energy drinks on the market.

The double blind, placebo-controlled, clinical study was conducted at the University of Southern California. Over a period of two days, 25 participants (14 males, 11 females) whose average age was 20 years old consumed MonaVie EMV as well as a placebo.

Each day, participants were shown eight random words and asked to memorize as many as possible. They were then placed on a treadmill set at 3 miles per hour with zero percent grade incline. After two minutes, incline grade was increased to 10 percent at 3 mph for 10 minutes. Then, participants were asked to step off the treadmill and repeat as many of the eight random words shown prior to getting on the treadmill. Participants who drank MonaVie EMV experienced a 20 percent increase in memory.

The researchers who conducted this study concluded that MonaVie EMV is a healthy alternative to many of the energy drinks on the market. They also noted that creating an acai product with these antioxidant levels and its attendant health benefits is a natural fit for individuals seeking an improvement in energy.

MonaVie Cyclist Sue Butler Finishes 9th in Mellow Johnny’s Classic

At the Mellow Johnny’s Classic in Austin, Texas, MonaVie cyclist Sue Butler battled humidity and heat that reached well into the 90’s to finish ninth overall. The oppressive heat struck early on, as Sue had to cut her morning warm-up short in order to get her body temperature down. Battling chills and the six-mile landscape of rolling hills, grassy fields, and rocky terrain, Sue determinedly finished among the top ten.

“The course was fun and the race was well run, but it was a matter of survival in the heat,” Sue said. “I fell back to ninth, but I was so happy to be finished and alive!”

MonVie's Yokley Posts Second-Place Finish in Ohio

MonaVie racer William Yokley finished second overall at the John Penton GNCC UTV Race in Millfield, Ohio, on June 5. A torrential rainstorm made for dusty and muddy conditions, as parts of the motocross track lay several feet under water before the race began. Even so, William’s UTV ran almost flawlessly and he maintained his success early on despite skidding off the track and over an embankment at the second turn. William’s next race is June 26, at the Snowshoe Resort in West Virginia.

MonaVie’s Tomas Scheckter Leads the Pack at 2010 Indianapolis 500

A little more than midway through the 94th annual Indianapolis 500 on Saturday, May 30, Tomas Scheckter maneuvered into first place. Driving the No. 23 MonaVie EMV car, the world watched live as Tomas held onto the lead for five laps, an impressive ascension considering the South African was in the 20 spot when the green flag dropped.

Accelerating from 20th to 14th place in the race’s first lap, Tomas looked to be in top form handling the MonaVie EMV machine. He capitalized on his initial success throughout the race, finally surpassing the competition for laps 109 through 113. Unfortunately, bad luck and radio trouble stood in the way of Scheckter’s first Indy 500 victory. Tomas brought the car back in one piece for a 15th-place finish—his fourth-best career finish at the Indy 500.

"I had a great car today," Scheckter said after the final lap. "It was a good, solid run. We were a very solid team today, and I think that showed."

MonaVie congratulates Tomas Scheckter on an exceptional performance!
