Legit or Scam?
Immunotec was developed by Dieter
Beer and several medical researchers and experts in association
with their respected universities. Immunotec was based on their
ongoing work with Immunocal since the early 80ís.
Immunocal was developed along the lines of other whey protein
supplements that are designed to affect glutathione levels in
people. Immunocal claims it boosts the immune system with bonded
cysteine, a building block for glutathione. This product is
The members in the development group of Immunotec agreed
that they would market Immunocal through a system of network
marketing. Knowing the negative connotation that MLMís have they
attempted to make theirs as different as possible.
The Immunotec network has grown buy leaps and bounds and they
have added to their product line. They now also offer Prycena,
an appetite suppressant and fat metabolizer that uses a
concentration of dairy calcium, fiber, and two micro-peptides,
and Xtra Sharp, a long lasting energy tonic that contains
minerals and herbs to eliminate periodic fatigue.
However, there have been some downsides to Immunocal and
Immunotec. The price of Immunocal has grown rapidly and is now
around $180 for about 900 grams. Also itís hard to get the truth
about the effectiveness of their product line since Immunotec is
a hybrid company of scientists, researchers, and businessmen.

I'm 37 and went through a bout of hot flashes, tested my hormone levels ( ended up being post menpausal) so I started taking one pack a day for a week or two and my flashes went away, I stopped taking the immunocal bc of the expense and then about a year later, my flushes returned with a vengeance, every 1/2 hour. I went to the doctor and she ordered an MRI to see if there was an adenoma on my pituitary gland secreting extra hormones . I immediately tried immunocal again, two packs a day, one in AM, one at Night, and symptoms subsided to 1 1/2 hrs, next day every 4 hours, then by day 5'they were completely gone. I was concerned the MRI would be effected, so my doctor suggested stopping the immunocal until I got the MRI... Results showed that there was inflammation that then was no longer there. She suggested for me to continue taking the immunocal after reading the physicians desk reference. I am a consultant, but was only to get product at greater discount. My father, 60, has been on one pack a day for 5 years and has not gotten a cold since he started. He is the reason why I looked into it,

I was constantly getting sinus infections and had bad allergies. After taking this product for a few months, my sinuses have cleared drastically and I have not needed allergy medication. I will keep using!

I read through many reviews and very confused. Putting everything aside for a moment and reviewing the ingredients per pouch, there's nothing more to this than a well designed marketing plan to inflate the price of Whey Proteins that can be purchased from any nutritional retail store or even Costco for a fraction of the price.
Look up and review the ingredients from the Whey sold at Costco for under $40 and each scoop contains 34 grams of Whey alone. Or jump online to review Iso Mass from Ultimate Nutrition......the ingredients in this product is incredible and far exceeds the Costco product however, I use the Costco Whey and eat properly to insure my body gets the right nutrition daily. I'm not knocking this product simply because I have never tried it however reading the ingredients is enough.....there is nothing in there that makes any sense to produce these miraculous results that can't be achieved through cheaper means. Lose the Hype and fluff and read the ingredients of both their regular and platinum products.
Heres my recommendation.....buy a Blendtec or vitiamix and learn about the POWERFUL benefits that green smoothies bring to your life........Bendtec was my choice and I have turned many many many people on to it for reasons of price over vitiamix and you won't believe how green smoothing can change your life........and everything you put in there daily..when pulverized by these blenders allows the small intestine to absorb the powerful ingredients these smoothies offer then distribute them throughout your blood stream.......research this everybody please!!!!!! Adding a few scoops of whey protein, flax seed, hemp seed, chia seed, spinach, kale, celery, fruit of your choice......daily in a Blendtec to pulverize the ingredients....well there is nothing that comes close to fresh produce when it comes to ealing the body.......research please......

I can not speak for others, just for myself. I have been in constant excruciating pain from my neck down for many years. Quality of life zero. Spending most of my time either in bed or my recliner. Only way to get anything done is by taking pain meds. Which never take the pain away, just take the edge off. After taking Immunocal for 2 weeks there is a definite improvement. Much more energy, less pain, more zest for life. I will keep you posted as time goes by; and the taste is delicious in orange juice.

i started using immunocal after treatments for stage 4 malignant melanoma in 2003. the doctors back then had little to offer except two years to live. immunocal or god kept me alive however the doctors never offered anything as totally life improving as immunocal. it has reduced my allergies, colds, flu, fever blisters(viruses),and improves your entire general health. not one of my doctors has ever expressed interest about me taking this product because it reduces their business. this product works it may even save your life or at the very least improve your quality of life. compared to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and man made drugs, immunocal tastes pretty good with milk yogurt, or fruit juice. i started to see noticeable improvements within 60 days of taking two pouches a day. i did become a dist. but just for the savings of buying the products.

Have RA. Not about to use the biologics that poison you, so trying natural, at least for now. Using Antibiotics, which seem to help, so far, but need more. Saw the Platinum reduces cytokines (bad stuff), so decided to try. Used 2 packs daily, for 2 months. Have nothing good to say, only gives me gas. Sorry, no miracles here. Keep your money for something else. On to the next...

I've just started on it. I have a brain tumor and lung cancer. Good grief! I have nothing to lose I suppose. It's hard to know what is the truth here as I know that competing companies pay people to come to these sites and bash the product. I'll let you all know soon enough if its made a difference for me. Current research I've found does speak very positively about whey protein and the health benefits.

If this product does not work then why does the United States government have this product under trials for stage 4 Lung cancer.
Their intent is the prevention of wasting away while have stage 4 Lung cancer. NO BS. and No I donot cell the product. Most of the US insurance companies accept a prescription for this product and pay based on one. Is that false. As far as taste, take it with juice. Did you think they would manufacture it for your taste buds. Get real!

I was so hesitant to get mixed up in an MLM company. But I was absolutely desperate for help and decided to give it 4 months. I was headed straight for death's door, and Immunocal has turned me around and is driving me back to health. I did get die-off and healing reactions which weren't pleasant, plus fevers. But i stuck with it and it is helping me heal from mystery illnesses I've had for 6 years where there were times I truly wanted to die. I do not sell the stuff. I just buy it and love it and will take it forever.

Wow. I started to comment on the above reviews, but do not want to offend anyone so I will just give my honest, straight up results. I am a real person who IS NOT a distributor. I learned about this product by accident while researching a "controversial" syndrome. I am the type of person who questions everything, has the "OCD" like need to research, cross reference, and verify everything, and over many years developed the skill of listening to my body and intuition. Long story short it has been about 25 days (2 pouches a day of immunocal platinum for me and hubby) and my body literally CRAVES this stuff. I mix it with fruit juice which just makes it a little thicker with no discernible taste at all. My husband is like a picky 5 year old and I swear the first thing he said was "Hey this don't taste bad at all". So I honestly don't know where the "bad taste" thing comes from. It's milk. Depending on how toxic you are you may go through a Herxheimer reaction (detox) where you feel worse before you feel better, hubby had mild cold like symptoms for 4 days. Improvements: Major- Energy, aches and pains, No more edema in legs (Yaaa!) not much pain at all after exercise ( I started walking on treadmill again after a year now that I have recovered energy and work 12 hour shifts) Needless to say we love immunocal and feel the benefits far outweigh the price.

I am using an allias...I purchased some Immunocal and Immunocal Silver, for Fibromialgia, took it 3 times a day for 30 days. After 30 days and 3 boxes of that stuff, I saw nor felt any results. That stuff tastes nasty(more so the Silver). I called for a refund, they said they wouldn't refund me my money (that's what they think). Thank goodness it was purchased with a credit card, I'm sure my bank will retrieve it for me.

I know people think MLM means it is a scam. It isn't. Not everything works for every single person, because we are deficient in different nutrients or don't take dosages we need. Also, you may detox when first taking it, and then you don't feel well for a bit. The science of it is proven, however, In my personal experience after over 15 years of suffering with multiple sclerosis, my disease has turned around because I give my body what it needs to take care of itself. The insurance copays of the MS drugs are so much more prohibitive. The toxicity of the drugs (which, by the way, the medical community uses trial and error; they don't even know why the drugs sometimes work) was at times dangerous leading to doctors taking me off of them, and always extremely uncomfortable/excruciating. This is from a reformed skeptic.

5 yrs ago I had successful back surgery. It had been so bad I couldn't walk. After 5 years I still had some of the shadow symptoms of my injury like tingling in my legs that was quite painful at times and as time went on found some of my original pain returning when staining my back. After being on Immunocal Platinum for 3 months all that has disappeared and I'm functioning like a 40 yr old when Im 50 something. My skin looks younger and I have more energy. My partner also feels so much better and we are sold on the product. Yes raw milk would be cheaper but its illegal to purchase in Canada. Our health is worth it and we want to enjoy our golden years not be a burden on our society and family.

Being Canadian I may be portrayed as biased since HMS90 (Immunocal) was developed and put through years of clinical development and scrutiny, in Canada, long before it even made it to the American market. Health Canada endorsed it years before the FDA. Our system here is quite a bit different. Anything funded by the government, in whole or in part, MUST produce fact of claim. A nation wide clinical on cancer patients proved its value. Its claim of increasing Glutathone levels are documented in many clinical studies at McGill University before the American FDA even knew it existed and has been approved for anti-cancer patents in Canada.

Whoever tells me this product is no good knows nothing about it, as I have personally experienced unbelievable health gains through it.Having gotten sick on a regular basis and suddenly not getting sick anymore due to being on it, the results talk for itself. I have even had my dog's tumor shrink right after taking this product, grandmother swearing by it, as it helped her arthritis and numerous other cases.What I have personally seen and experienced says it all! There are few cases that it will not work, but in most, the worse the health, the more dramatic the results can be seen!
