acai berry is the crown jewel of the MonaVie blend. When properly freeze-dried, acai boasts
an ORAC score higher than that of any other fruit
or vegetable tested to date, based on available USDA
data. It's no wonder that for ages the indigenous
cultures of the Amazon have revered acai as
a source of health and vitality. Recently, modern
science has validated the remarkable health benefits
of this fruit, and studies have shown acai to contain the following beneficial nutrients:
fatty acids (Omega 3)
Studies have also shown that freeze-dried
acai powder boasts antioxidant capacity more
than 15 times higher than blueberries and more than
20 times higher than raspberries. The final MonaVie blend incorporates the flavors and benefits of the
acai berry and other healthful and delicious
MonaVie Pulse's acai leverages an exclusive
method of preserving the benefits of the acai berry into a freeze-dried powder. Rich in polyphenols
(a powerful form of antioxidants), acai is
able to neutralize free radicals, thereby lowering
oxidative stress. What's important to note is that
the acai berry's nutritional properties are
volatile and can easily be compromised if not properly
harvested and processed. The process used to make
MonaVie's acai freeze-dried powder is the most
effective method of ensuring the nutrient content
and antioxidant activity of the acai berry.
MonaVie Pulse Blend
The acai berry is arguably the most important
fruit in existence for your health. Experts have referred
to acai as the world's No. 1 superfood. But
nature has given us literally thousands of different
phytonutrients and antioxidants that are important
for our bodies to function optimally. While it may
be difficult to get too much of a good thing, it would
be unwise to ignore the variety of health benefits
that nature's other fruits have to offer. That is
why MonaVie Pulse features a heart healthy
blend of fruits specifically chosen for their ability
to nutritionally support cardiovascular health—acai,
concord grape, pineapple, apple, prickly pear, pomegranate,
elderberry, yumberry, bilberry, blackberry, blueberry,
cherry, cranberry, raspberry, aronia, acerola, strawberry,
cupuçu, and camu camu..
MonaVie takes great care at each step in production
to ensure the highest quality standards are met.
The process begins with the harvesting of the acai
berry deep within the Amazon River basin. Unlike
poachers, who illegally chop down an entire tree
just to harvest a 12-inch section of the tree known
as the palmito (or "heart of the palm"),
our conservative harvesting method removes only
the acai berries, thereby preserving the
life of the tree and promoting the preservation
of the rainforest.
Acai is a powerful yet delicate fruit and
much of its vitamin and nutrient content can be
lost within 24 hours after harvesting, if not properly
cared for. To preserve its full complement of nutrients,
our acai is frozen soon after harvesting.
This frozen acai is then processed into our
exclusive, freeze-dried formula, the most effective
and nutrient-dense form of acai available.
and Bottling: Most companies use a process known
as kettle pasteurization. This process involves
heating the formula for several hours and can inadvertently
"cook out" many of the nutritional properties.
However, MonaVie uses flash pasteurization in which
the formula is rapidly heated, bottled, and cooled,
thereby capturing the fresh flavors, vibrant colors,
and dense nutrient content of the blend.
