I have been drinking mona vie for a while and when some say it is a scam , maybe it is, but I know what it has done for me. I have quit drinking it a time or 2 and when I do I have regrets that I let myself run out. It keeps me from having hot flashes, my joints don't hurt when I drink just an ounce a day. when I'm feeling bad I drink a little more, I know my sister gives it to her son and he very rarely gets sick .. when he is not drinking it , he does get everything else that is going around... my dad thougth it was like snake oil,,but then he tried it, quit it and tried it again... his blood pressure is now normal, his sugar is better. he has COPD and is still kicking pretty good for an 82 year old... Now this is what I think is the reason it works, it is because it is organic, or wild grown, not processed like everything and sprayed with all kinds of chemicals... if we ate the way we ate in the 60's and 70's we would probably have a lot better health. Some people just can't afford organic or grain fed meat.... But eating stuff that is stuffed full of hormones and other things you cannot pronounce is not good...so at least I am getting some nutrition from this. I love it.
