What makes Sumner run?
What puts the glide in Sumner Redstone’s stride? According to Fortune Magazine it’s a special nostrum made from a Brazilian berry, and it makes the octogenarian executive chairman of Viacom feel like a kid again. Or at least, like a middle-aged man.
Redstone’s preferred beverage is called MonaVie, and it’s not available in stores. Only registered representatives are permitted to sell it.
According to MonaVie’s website, the beverage includes the fruits of 19 juices, most notably acai berry, which is rich in antioxidants. People that drink MonaVie claim it does a body good for a whole host of ailments, from sore joints to sleeplessness to sluggishness, according to these testimonials on YouTube.
Whatever MonaVie is good for, it doesn’t come cheap–a bottle of the stuff costs $40, which may be why it’s packaging makes it look more like a Bordeaux than a regular juice.
Sumner Redstone, 84, says the drink makes him feel like he’s 40. All the more strength to squabble with his daughter in public.
