Açai Makes Headlines in Prestigious Book by ACS: Flavor and Health Benefits of Small Fruits

A chapter discussing the benefits of the açai berry has been published in the book, Flavor and Health Benefits of Small Fruits, published by Oxford University Press in conjunction with the American Chemical Society (ACS), the largest scientific organization in the world.

The article is co-authored by Dr. Alex Schauss, a member of the MonaVie Scientific Advisory Board, who commented, "It's an honor to have an article requested for submission into this invitation-only symposium series publication."

The following is an excerpt from chapter 13, "Açai: An Amazonian Palm Fruit with Broad Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Activities":
The pulp of the Amazonian palm fruit, açai (Euterpe oleracea Mart.), has been found to have exceptional antioxidant capacity in vitro, particularly against the superoxide, peroxyl, and hydroxyl radicals. Studying foods for their potential health benefits to humans can benefit from in vitro assays that can correlate with in vivo outcomes.

About ACS Symposium Series Books
The ACS Symposium Series contains high-quality, peer-reviewed books developed from the ACS technical divisions' symposia. Each chapter is carefully authored by an expert in the field, and the collection of chapters edited by an internationally recognized leader in the field. The series covers a broad range of topics, including agricultural and food chemistry.

About the ACS
The American Chemical Society is a non-profit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. With more than 161,000 members, ACS is the world's largest scientific society and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals, and scientific conferences.

Weight Management Pre-Launch Begins Tuesday, November 2, 2010; MonaVie Weight Loss Study Underway

Dear Distributor,

The MonaVie weight loss study is underway, and those chosen for the study have been notified and will begin receiving their weight loss study packages in the coming week. If you did not receive email notification from MonaVie corporate indicating that you were selected for the study, you still have an amazing opportunity to try our weight management products before they officially launch in January!

Weight Management Products—Pre-Launch
The pre-launch period begins November 2, 2010 and ends January 4, 2011. During this time, while supplies last, our weight management products will be available for purchase to U.S. and Canada distributors who are Active (as defined by the MonaVie Compensation Plan) with at least 100 PV. Qualifying distributors will accrue Personal Volume points on these purchases.

Additionally, distributors who purchase product during the pre-launch will be required to agree to the terms and conditions of a “Health Information and Likeness Disclosure” consent form at the time of purchase. If you choose to share your success story (or before and after picture), this form simply indicates your consent for MonaVie to use your information for promotional purposes. Please note that your Preferred Customers will not be able to purchase weight management products during the pre-launch, but will be able to at the official launch in January.

Weight Management Products—Official Launch
The official launch of MonaVie’s weight management products is slated for January 5, to immediately follow the pre-launch period ending January 4. Everyone, including Preferred Customers, can purchase product after the official launch; and, distributors will no longer be required to be Active with at least 100 PV to purchase product.

This is an exciting time to be a MonaVie distributor, and I thank you for your efforts as we bring healthy weight loss to the market. You are going to love what these amazing new products do for your body and your business! Please stay tuned to www.monaviemediacenter.com for more information and updates.

Sincerely,

Jeff Graham

MonaVie’s Newest Blue Diamonds—Linda and Steve Kampouroglou

Congratulations to Linda and Steve Kampouroglou from Tarpon Springs, Florida, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here’s what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

“Each morning we wake up, we remember how precious life is and give thanks to our creator for what we have. One thing is for certain: none of us knows what tomorrow will bring, so we have to live each day as if it were our last.

“We have spent over 25 years in the custom home building business and over 20 years in martial arts. We’ve been blessed to have very successful businesses, which require hard work. Steve knows the meaning of working hard, as he has earned a double black belt in two styles of martial arts and has won several world championships. We know that to win or be successful at anything requires work, dedication, commitment, and passion. Without a doubt, champions are built in the process of hard work and sometimes pain. We choose to be champions at life, and MonaVie has allowed us that opportunity.

“About three and a half years ago, we were introduced to MonaVie. We are a family of five, and each of us has a testimony that we will never stop drinking this great product. We were drinking MonaVie but not really thinking of working it as a business until the economy and our business took a downward direction. We got on our knees and asked God for guidance and direction to help us be and do something significant for our friends and family. The next day we were invited to a function that changed our life.

“As we got into the elevator, Dallin Larsen walked in. He took the time to talk to Steve, and as we got off the elevator, he told him that we were going to do something significant and change a lot of people’s lives. The word ‘significant’ stood out because that is what we prayed about the day before. This was truly an answer to our prayers. We developed a friendship that we will treasure forever.

“Where my friends Dallin, Brig, and Lita are, that’s where we will be. If you are able to find one true friend in life, you are blessed. We have been blessed beyond compare with the friendships we have developed through MonaVie. We are blessed to be Blue Diamonds and to have just returned from Hawaii for the second year in a row.

“If you want to do something significant and change your life physically and financially, look at this company with an open mind and heart. We are proof that it can change your life. God first, family second, and MonaVie third. Yes, in life you can go from success to significance.”
