So I got roped into trying this health-food crap called “VaNu“. It’s an acai / goji / cupuacu juice from the rainforest, sold by an MLM company from Dallas called “Fountain of Life”. It’s blended with cacao and vanilla, and has a nice taste in my opinion, sort of red wine meets chocolate.
If you know me, I’m really skeptical about this sort of thing. And the stuff is really expensive – about $40 for a 24 oz bottle. So it’d better do something.
As it turns out, it really seems to. I tried it at the recommended serving size of approx 2 oz per day, and it didn’t have much effect. So, being me, I tried doubling the amount. And you know, I felt great. My energy levels went way up, my performance in my yoga class was stronger than ever, my digestion improved almost immediately, and I just felt good.
I know what you’re thinking. “Are you sure it says cacao and not coca?” No, the ingredient list is quite pristine: acai, agave, cupuacu, goji, camu-camu, cacao, and vanilla. That’s it.
Yeah, whatever. Call me crazy. But you know what, the stuff actually worked. And I think I’ll keep on using it. It’s expensive, but no more so than what a lot of people spend daily on Starbucks. And this is a lot better for you.
OK, fine. Go ahead and laugh.
