As a parent of two awesome kids, I want to ensure that they are getting some quality nutrition in their bodies to grow up strong and healthy. Our family drinks Monavie juices every day, giving us the purest fruits mother nature intended us to consume. Monavie products have the highest quality of Acai on the market, and complimented with 18 other whole fruits in each bottle. Check out my product page if you want to try some. My kids love the Mmun, and if I let my son he would drink a whole bottle in one sitting. These juices are low glycemic and patent protected, to ensure the highest quality on the market more than 10 times the strength than anything else on the market.
Its true - todays world is teeming with threats to our health, which places our children especially at risk. Statistics show that most children in todays society, along with their parents, face an uphill battle in achieving overall health and wellness. Children are bombarded with the marketing of unhealthy food choices such as processed foods that are high in sugar and fat. Many school districts have eliminated physical education programs and have shortened recess periods, limiting opportunities for children to play and exercise.
Its no secret that our children's overall dietary habits are poor ( see statistics in "What our Children are and Aren't Eating") Looking at those statistics, one must wonder, how will our children be affected later in life? We know that being overweight or obese, conditions influenced by poor diet and inactivity are significantly associated with an increased risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, asthma, joint problems and poor overall health. A CDC study estimated that one in 3 american children born in 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime.
Early indicators of atherosclerosis, the most common cause of heart disease, now begin as early as childhood and adolescence. Atherosclerosis is related to high blood cholesterol levels, which are associated with poor dietary habits.
Of course, poor eating habits not only impair children's growth and development, they serve as a foundation for poor eating habits when those children become adults.
Fortunately, a new fruit to the market called the Acai berry (pronouced ah-sigh-EE) can help parents improve their childrens overall nutrition. Acai is an attractive delicious and nutrient dense fruit that can complete in todays food marketplace. The small, purple berry, which grows in the Amazon region of Brazil, has been gaining the attention of researchers and consumers worldwide due to its health - promoting properties.
For decades we've heard the adage "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." While there is certainly truth to this, the good news is that we now have fruits such as acai that are more nutrient-dense and provide a wider array of nutrients than do the old standbys - apples, oranges and bananas, which represent the fruit choices most commonly consumed by Americans.
Monavie products provide the purest form of Acai products on the market, with at least 10 times the potency of other by products.
