Monavie weightloss supplements

I have this one fb friend that is constantly pushing this sh1t. I guess it's some kind of replacement shake with acai berry and some other natural ingredients. She makes it seem like it's some miracle weigh loss supplement but she always comments about how "you can make money selling it too". I have my beliefs on it, which is that it's bogus marketing, but have you guys ever heard of it. I have a very hard time thinking it's any good.

And no, I'm not going to try it lol. I just want to hear your guys take on this thing. It seems like one big pyramid scheme.

Don't know what it is, not interested. Anything sold through multi-level marketing is crap, in my opinion.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

that's how I feel about this. It's hilarious to see all her little followers buy into this sh1t instead of learn about proper nutrition.

Def a pyramid bro. I know this from experience because 3 years ago my buddy was selling Monavie and it was (and still is) just a scam.

Besides the very obvious pyramid the product actually works. I would be careful taking to much of it though. One of my coworkers who was a GM tech took it on a more then regular basis. Since glucosamine produces a sort of lubrication for the joints he ended up "over lubing" and rolling his knee out of place. (supposedly)

ive heard that the whole monavie thing is a pyramid-esque scheme, but ive also heard that acai berry supplements are a pretty good appetite suppressant, which is how you end up losing weight from it.
