MonaVie and its Different Fruits: Part One

MonaVie is a healthy juice with overly nutritious ingredients. It is a tasty blend of nineteen different kinds of fruits. The nineteen fruits in MonaVie consist of acai berries, apricots, aronias, acerolas, purple grapes, passion fruits, camu camu, banana, lychee fruits, nashi pears, kiwis, pomegranates, prunes, wolfberries, pears, bilberries, cranberries, blueberries, and white grapes.

The acai berry is the most important of all the fruits in MonaVie. Its capabilities in fighting against harmful antioxidants is what makes it so unique. The acai berry is made up of two thirds fiber making it an excellent source of the macronutrient. It is grown in the Amazon region of Brazil.

The apricot is a drupe which is similar to a small peach, 1.5-2.5 cm diameter. It is yellow to orange, often traced red on the side most exposed to the sun; its surface is usually pubescent. Apricots give MonaVie an extra boost of fiber which is important because most Americans don’t get the recommended daily dosage of fiber.

The aronias berry is astringent and not sweet, and it attributes Vitamin C and important antioxidants to the MonaVie juice. The acerola fruit is bright red, 1.5-2 cm diameter, containing 2-3 hard seeds. It is juicy, often as much sour as sweet in flavor. Acerolas are also significant for their high Vitamin C content.

Purple grapes in medical research show potential benefits against the onset stage of cancer, platelet aggregation and other risk factors of atherosclerosis. The passion fruit is round to oval, yellow or dark purple at maturity, and has a soft to firm, juicy interior filled with numerous seeds. The passion fruit has been believed to lower blood pressure. Camu camu is a red/purple cherry like fruit. It is extremely high in Vitamin C content. Bananas lend to MonaVie a valuable source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium. The lychee fruit is also rich in vitamin C and has a textural quality similar to a grape. The nashi pear helps to give MonaVie a sweet refreshing taste and is actually an expensive fruit to buy.
