Immunotec was developed as a partnership between nutrition researchers and business leaders to create a global health and wellness company. Since the early 90’s the core of Immunotec has been their ongoing work with Immunocal - specially prepared whey protein isolate with a wide range of benefits.
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 patented internationally.
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 MLMs 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.
Products and Ingredients:
The company now offers a wide variety of products to address many modern health issues and aims to alleviate the daily stresses placed on our immune systems. They now offer:
- Vitamins and minerals
- Mental alertness supplements
- Joint health
- Weight management
- Skin care
- And more…
Their most known and best selling branded product is still Immunocal.
Immunotec’s literature describes Immunocal as a product that is clinically proven to help support your immune system - citing over 40 published studies as their evidence.
It can also help increase muscle strength and performance when combined with regular exercise. The company has developed partnerships with many elite athletes to support these claims.
Another recent addition is Cogniva - a supplement designed to improve alertness and mental performance. This chewable nootropic makes use of a proprietary blend of concentrated vitamins, minerals and scientifically researched ingredients containing phosphatidylserine.
They 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.
You can find detailed ingredient lists and all related research and marketing material for each product on their website.
Immunotec Business Opportunity:
Along the lines of other large health companies Immunotec offers an MLM business that allows its independent distributors to either save money as regular users and also build a business through direct sales.
The benefits of working with Immunotec over other companies in the field focus primarily around the name recognition and longevity of this company.
They have been in business for over 40 years and throughout that time have grown significantly. They were amongst the top 100 direct selling companies in 2017 showing that they have withstood many changes in the marketplace and have remained competitive.
Naturally the business is not for everyone and you have 3 levels of involvement to choose from. As with all MLM companies you need to purchase or sign up from another independant distributor.
You can choose from being a preferred customer which entails receiving monthly shipments of your favorite products at discounted rate.
Or, you can attempt to build a home business around Immunotec. This will involve building your own customer base and downline of other consultants. By law MLM companies have to disclose the financial of their distributors; this allows potential customers to see the income breakdowns of the company’s consultants.
These numbers often paint a dire view of the business, for instance in 2016 Immunotec shows that 1.70% of all consultants earn $1000.01 -$2500.00 per month. However these numbers may be skewed as not all consultants pursue the opportunity full time.
The opportunity works well for people who have directly benefited and wholeheartedly believe in the products. Since you are the main sales force it helps when people can see the positive effects that you’ve experienced.
If you have any questions you can reach a company representative at their main phone number 1-888-917-7779 or by email at [email protected]
As with most MLMs it’s difficult to get a clear picture of the products and business. Since the bulk of sales are done in person the validity of the information you receive depends on the individual consultant.
Thus the result is a wide range of anecdotal claims both supporting and denigrating the products. Again you can research each individual product on their site where the disclose all ingredients and effects.
Competitors and Alternatives:
If you have tried any Immunotec products please leave a detailed review below explaining if you found them effective and if they performed as advertised. Likewise if you are an independent consultant please describe how your business is going and if you are able to succeed with the business opportunity.

Diagnosed with colorectal cancer
Diagnosed with colorectal cancer in Oct 2014. Started eating organic diet immediately. Went through chemo (tablets)/radiation 6 weeks dec to Jan 19th 2915. Was to heal from radiation for 2 months then surgery. Last few days of treatment was introduced to iImmunocal. Took it 4x a day for 3 months went back and Dr could find not even scar tissue. Did another colonoscopy MRI cat scan. Results were â€œNo evidence of cancer â€œ. He still wanted to operate â€just in caseâ€ but I declined the surgery. Eat organic dense nutrition and 1 packet of Immunocal with organic veggie juice (for less sugar and bubbles) and have been through 3 annual physicals with no issues. Health good ...work 40 hours a week standing and talking to guests in a theme park and good stamina for 67 years old. I think Immunocal contributes greatly to my good health. It will help most people if they eat organic and put down the pesticides herbicides additives preservatives chemicals refined sugar and genetically modified food (thatâ€™s genetically modified with basically pesticide). Especially wheat corn and soy. Cysteine in Immunocal is a precursor to your body making glutathione for a strong immune system. Probiotics and beano will help with any gas you get if you are sensitive to whey protein. This is dense nutrition. Take it and get the bad stuff out of your diet. Moderate exercise will help too. Treat your body right and youâ€™ll feel good and live longer.
This is how God made us to eat. Yes Im a consultant in order to get the discount. That helps me and my friends and family. It won't hurt you. It's food.
My taking Immunical caused a protein overload and poisoning of my liver. I only took it for three weeks when the damage was found in a routine blood test. My issues has lasted 5 weeks now with blood work being done once a week. I spent time in the hospital as the doctors eliminated every other possibility. My two doctors concluded that it was Immunical causing me these death threatening illnesses!! I hope I can save just one person from making the same mistake.
Hi, i recently purchased both immunotec and immunotec platinum... I bought it specifically to treat stage four lung cancer. Is there anyone that has seen positive results that can show me proof. I've taken it for a week and I feel worst than I did before. I had to go to the ER. Please, someone let me know if this is normal or if I should stop taking it. I really appreciate it. Thanks!
This product helps your glutation levels if you are sick of something just search glutation and whetever you have and there it go your answer immunocal it is clinically proof if not wouldn't be on the doctors PDR
Bought this product from a Lady named Patricia Karalash and was promised it is a miracle product. Just a protein shake if you carefully read the ingredients. The product is NOT everything it says it is.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THEIR ADVERTISING.
It is a horrible product. It made the family member i purchased it for gag as if the product was rancid.
I don't know anything about this product, but to the person that has claimed it caused her father to relapse with colon cancer and have it spread throughout the body...that's impossible and I'll explain why. Colon cancer is the slowest moving cancer there is. Stomach pains, which your father noticed immediately, are a sign of colon cancer. The fact that after only a few months his colon cancer had spread throughout the body is an indication that he had it for quite some time prior to taking these drugs. Now, whomever told you that the stomach pains were normal etc might be responsible for him waiting to get medical attention or perhaps it's on him for having a history of cancer and not educating himself about symptoms etc, but to blame the product is ridiculous.
I bought this because I have fybromyalgia and someone said it can help me with that. They also went over all the benefits of using this, for cancer, lupus, this and that..I'm not sure if it does actually help with those types of health issues but I van tell you what it's done for me. I've used it for a little over a month and have noticed a slight difference in my energy level and overall well being. I have also noticed it makes me feel full so I eat less and have lost a small amount of weight.
The first few days I used it, my body would not tolerate it but the person who sold it to me said it is normal to feel like that.
Anyhow, it's an okay product however, it is expensive and I've seen the same exact product at Target, under different name of course. It's basic whey protein so if you can buy it for cheaper in stores, go right ahead..I don't think it has a secret mind boggling ingredient.
This product works and has completely changed my life. I am a 35 year old mother of 2 young children 7 and 4 and suffered from Chronic fatigue syndrome since I was 19. I was always tired no energy, always catching cold's, mono, strep throat you name it I would get it. I was introduced to Immunocal from my parents in Nov 2015. Since taking the product I feel like I have my life back! I have not been sick AT ALL! Since taking the product, I have energy and feel like I have my life back. This product WORKS! and I will never be without it!
