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.

I am 69 and fit. Low weight in ketogenic diet. I took IMMUNOCAL or two months, and there was no psotive or negative effect. My wife tried it not continuously and didn´t get any improvements in Migraine oe head aches.
The big issue was that my brother has Cronical L. Leukemia. I tried to see if IMMUNOCAL would work for him and reading a lot of technical papers realized that Glutatione reinforcement only protects cancer cells from Chimiotherapy. This means that doctors are trying to save my brothers life and he had taken IMMUNOCAL woudl have worked against the treatment. Now if you watch carefully the sales pitches, you´ll see that all honest salesmen claim that if you have cancer better talkto your doctor before using IMMUNOCAL. The problem is that if you have cancer and don´t know it, you will reinforce your cancer by taking IMMUNOCAL and accelerate your disease. Being odds so hihg of having incipient cancer of one type or the other, I decided not to take IMMUNOCAL and not to recommend it to anybody. I still have some packets left if somebody wants them, be welcome to them.
I came down with the flu last Friday anD I was taking 2 packs of Immunocal a day. I was getting temporary relief right after I took it and my symptoms came back and I started the sweats and the crazy, throbbing headache. My friend who introduced me ti Immunocal told me to double up and take 4 packs a day starting with 2 packs at the same time in the morning, one in the afternoon and then one at night. I had already taken 1 pack that morning about 9:00am, so I took 2 packs later this afternoon and my symptoms have been extremely diminished. I took 2 tablespoons of Xtra Sharp mixed with some Ginger Ale about 1 hour before I took the 2 packets and the results are there. this stuff is 1005 LEGIT!!! Do not listen to what folks are saying about these products, they are probably paid to post bad reviews. Even the claims in this post of the product pricing is way off. The cost of Immunocal is not $180, it's only $99. The cost for Immunocal Platinum is $141.43 and those are the retail prices right on their website. Don't know where these folks get their info from. It's a complete joke to me. Then again, when something good comes along that's better than the rest, you are bound to have haters. It's their nature. I say give credit where credit is due. Immunotec is a legit company with legit products. Well the 2 I have tried myself are 100% legit anyway.
Have not tried product yet, nor do I wish to, I have seen MLM/Pyramid companies like these flood the "miracle cure" scene time after time.
I have also seen positive reviews written by the people pushing the product many times, if it smells funny when you read it, its going to taste the same I'm sure...lol
Overpriced, health benefits are not third-party peer reviewed, all the fantastic claims about what Immunocal are made by the Immuonotec - the company that produces the stuff, and customers are expected to help push product sales...
What more can be said about Immunocal?
I started taking Immunocal about 12 years ago. I was impressed when I saw a significant change in the health of a dear friend of mine who had just suffered from an onslaught of three auto-immune diseases...fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and lupus. From a beautiful, full of energy middle aged woman, she was bound to bed and taking steroidal meds. Her face became very swollen and she looked like a shadow of her former self. It was painful to watch. However, about 3 months later I saw her again and she was looked great. I asked her what she had done, as I knew her conditions were chronic and would get worse. She told me about taking Immunocal. I asked her...where can I get some? I had just started suffering from inflammation in my knees and wondered if it might help. She invited me to a seminar that week and I went. Having always been involved in natural foods and supplements I was intrigued by the fact that this product was in the Physician's Desk Reference...even though it's not a pharmaceutical and is, therefore, recognized by the Medical community. It has the validation of being endorsed by a Nobel Prize Winning Doctor, Luc Montagnier, who won the Prize in 2008 in Medicine for his 1984 discovery of the AIDS virus and endorsed Immunocal and even co-authored a medical publication with the Inventor of the Product, Dr. Gustavo Bounous, an Italian Immunologist. I have personally had the joy of seeing many, many of my dear friends and family members have complete reversals of some very chronic health challenges on Immunocal....H1N1 Virus; Multiple Myeloma, end stage; many, many cancer patients who are now healthy after taking Immunocal. It is important to note, however, that some people will take Immunocal without taking the recommended dosage for their particular health concern and then claim that id didn't work for them. Well, that's like taking 400 milligrams of a med, when the doctor prescribed 1000 milligrams. Taken at the recommended dosage for the ailment in question, I have seen it work everytime. In fact, Kelly, quoted above took the Immunocal from me and I am happy for that.
I'm amazed at reading some of the negative reviews also noting that a lot of them get the name of the product wrong. I researched Immunocal a few years ago when I was looking for something to help my mother who suffers from Lewy Body Dementia. I came across Immunocal but it was only distributed in Canada and the US which made it far too expensive. It has however, come over to the UK. I immediately started my mother on it who is 83 years old and in a carehome. I started her on 1 packet a day due to the detox and immediately noticed an improvement in her walking, she had lost her co-ordinatination, needing 2 carers to help her walk and would put one foot on top of the other whilst trying to walk. She now is able to walk straight, still with help of 2 carers but stronger and a little faster. I upped her to 2 packets after a couple of weeks and having not spoken for over 9 months she laughed out loud to a funny incident and told my son she loved him too after he said he loved her! Small but believe me, very significant improvements. I intend to continue and up her dosage in a while to 3 per day. I have also started taking it as due to all the stress dealing with my mother's illness whilst trying to work caused me to suffer from depression for over a year, I've never felt like that before. I started taking 1 packet and after a couple of days the fog has lifted and I feel back to normal. Immunocal does work, despite the sceptics that leave very short uninformative reviews as to why they feel it doesnt work.
