MonaVie Active packs the benefits of 19 anti-oxidative and health enhancing fruits into one bottle, along with glucosamine. It is a vegan-approved supplement, as the glucosamine it contains is derived from corn. Glucosamine is a well-known supplement for joint health. The fruit blend includes apple, bilberry, blueberry, grape, pear, prune, wolfberry, banana, blackberry, cherry, acerola, pineapple, acai, pomegranate, white grape, cranberry, passionfruit, kiwi, and elderberry. Each fruit brings its own properties to the blend, though the high concentration of vitamin C is touted as the main active, anti-oxidant component. In addition to vitamin C having anti-oxidant effects, it also promotes collagen formation. The body loses collagen as it ages, so stimulating production can have an anti-aging effect. MonaVie Active comes in a case of four bottles.
MonaVie Active is part of the company’s Youth Enhancement System (Y.E.S.), a system designed to tackle aging from the inside and out.

Used as a complete system, Y.E.S. is meant to provide complete nutrition supplementation, energy support, and cellular protection via supplements and external creams.
