A New Product, and an INCREDIBLE opportunity!

We've introduced a new product to The Weed Patch (we're now Independent Distributors!) that we're very excited about, even though it's a deviation from our normal product lines. I'm proud to introduce you to a product that has made an amazing difference in Chris' life - and in Barb's, Betty's, Marcia's, Kelli's . . . the list goes on to include just about every gal at The Patch! The product? It's called Mona Vie, and it's an elegant health supplement that actually TASTES GOOD! The crown jewel of Mona Vie is the acai berry; harvested in the Amazon, the acai berry is LOADED with antioxidants, protein, phytonutrients.... Mona Vie's proprietary blend includes the acai and 19 other fruits; the "Active" formula also contains glucosamine and estrified fatty acids, which help with joint problems. Barb has lost 9lbs in one month, and her knees have improved to the point that she can walk up the stairs without pain. Betty's back is feeling better. Kelli - who could hardly walk up the stairs - literally spent all day Saturday running up and down the stairs (and Kelli has signed up as an Independent Distributor!). We're excited about Mona Vie, because it actually works - it's absolutely amazing stuff.

Each week that goes by, Mona Vie makes an even more noticable difference in our lives. From a health standpoint, Mona Vie balances our bodies by providing the necessary antioxidants, phytonutrients, and (in the case of the Active Blend) glucosamine and estrified fatty acids which help maintain, build, and lubricate our joints. Mona Vie is not a miracle cure; that said, the results of everyone that has taken it faithfully are absolutely incredible, and the longer they're on it, the better it is.

From a business standpoint, Mona Vie is also incredible. In fact, we're SO excited about Mona Vie that we've set up a website dedicated to it. This site is part of the Mona Vie, and has a wealth of information about Mona Vie. It also has some fantastic videos and radio interviews that will tell you more about both the product and the company.

We are so confident that as an Independent Distributor you will see your health improve, and that you can make some extra income for the holiday season, that we're going to pay the initial signup fee for the first 10 people that come to sign up!

So, if you're interested in tasting Mona Vie, or if you want to get yourself signed up, come by the store during our Holiday Extravaganza on Dec. 7th from 6pm - 8pm for a tasting. If you're interested before that, come by the store and talk to Chris! Don't wait - Mona Vie could change your life!
