I run my own Wellness Business that specialises in corrective exercise and nutrition and for the last 4 years have been searching for the ‘ultimate supplement’ range that I could recommend to my clients. Naturally I don’t recommend anything to my clients unless it is backed by scientific studies and I have obviously tried it myself. I had tried pretty much all of the top brands out there from local to international, and with most I had to buy separate bottles to get the full range that I would look for in an Anti Oxidant, and this could prove timely each morning with having to take out the required amount of tablets from each bottle.I also never knew if they were being absorbed or not so took them out of good faith! Sadly I was never blown away by any of these brands until I was introduced to LIfe Pak Nano. What caught my attention was the ‘ultimate all in one’ sachet that made grabbing your multi vits on the run so easy! I also had myself scanned and scored in the lower half of the green having already been on a healthy diet of fresh fruit and veg. Within 6 weeks I went up to just below the blue, to 46,000 points and I already knew these supplements were being absorbed as I felt better than I ever had. I no longer had that tired patch in the afternoon, and my entire body functioned better. It was as if my body was being fuelled with the optimum fuel! What was even more amazing is I started Life Pak Nano just before winter and each winter I get a serious bout of flu. Well I can happily say I have gone the entire winter without even a sore throat! I have also gone onto Coritrol and Ageloc Vitality which I will post in a separate testimonial as once again I am highly impressed with the Pharmanex range, so much so that I have become a distributor because I want to tell as many people as I can, beyond my own clients, about this amazing product range!

OK, so it is obvious that North American’s don’t need or desire to work for another company that pays them commissions. But what have you to say about the products? All I ever hear is what is wrong with the marketing or the business structure. What about a product that does what it says it will.
This is the first time I have found a product like the Nano Pack that works for so many. Then their is the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner which is capable of testing to see if the product is having any affect. They want you to be tested to see the results, because there products work. I believe I will take the products and live a longer and healthier life, and if I tell someone else about it and get a signup bonus, what’s wrong with that.
I have a good job and am not looking for another business to work. Although, if I look down and find a $20 on the ground, I don’t know about you, but I’m going to pick it up, even if I did nothing to earn it.

This Company fails most of the twelve tests. Its growth is coming from opening up new markets in Asia because the home ones have dried up. Fifty per cent of its income now comes from Asia. The rest of it must be pretty thinly spread among the rest of the world.

Of course they are buoyant about the product.The distributors are buying it all up. Have you seen the cost of a business pack? The majority is bought by the distributors which is totally against the ruling that not to be a pyramid scheme seventy per cent has to be bought by the public?

I challenge anyone to find that in any company? It is totally the opposite. The Company will of course protest but they will provide no proof.

All you are doing with this Company is trying to prevent your downline collapsing as they all leave in droves because they cannot make any money, so you are trying to recruit all the time.

This Company has a 99.7% failure rate and the remainder are barely breaking even. What a total betrayal of these distributors whose only real requirement is that they be taught internet marketing properly, and proper warm marketing.

There is no point in teaching them about the product when they do not know how to market it.
