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.
51 ‘Immunotec’ Reviews
I've read some of the reviews from a few,particularly the person who was not brave enough to put Her or his name in front of what they had to say. No where in any of his or her statement did they say or offered proof that it was the immunocal that laid their parent low if he was in such good health! why not take something else and bring it to a doctor for a professional opinion? I'm sure he had blood work.Any way it doesn't matter I just feel if you are trying to help other people avoid something that is harmful give at least substantial facts and information.Also BARRY from MONTREAL if these other proteins are as gracious as you say they are simply by reading the label it would seem that the Canadian government who gave research monies to Dr. Gustavo Bunos who as a result of his research discovered how significantly powerful this protein can be, for the Human body even to the point of granting significant patents, that you can not get with vitamins, or herbs, just that alone speaks for itself. Can these proteins be tested to raise Glutathione levels, yes they can if you are honest with yourself try it oh and bring the papers with you as proof. I'm not trying to prove anything to anyone who reads what I'm saying because like so many folks who are writing about how they have been helped by using Immunocal I have seen what it has done personally. who would tell a mom or son, or daughter or anyone who is getting help not to use it???? if its not working for you or if that was the case for me then you or I would or should try to find something else. at least Barry did that. for me and others its been Awesome.
I didn't even buy the product yet, but based on the good reviews i've been reading I started feeling better...

I'v noticed more energy and fewer colds taking immunical. .but has anyone seen improvement with using this product for their Multiple Sclerosis. .and if so, with how many packets a day?
I tried every whey supplement on the market. None had the positive effect that this one did. (I did find another company, Imuplus that worked equally well). It was like rolling back the clock. My muscles responded to this by getting stronger and without exercise! I do lift weights now, some years after trying this product. I don't like MLM companies but that doesn't mean that the product is junk. (I don't sell this product)
Before Immonucal I was suffering from two very unpleasant conditions: gastritis and urticaria (hives). During the first week of consuming immonucal the itching from the hives diminished and the chest pain from the gastritis went away. No more heartburn and nearly gone hives after only two months of taking immonucal. My sister started taking it at the same time as I did, her triglycerides came down to normal levels and her rheumatoid arthritis hasn't given her any more pain. I have since become a distributor and will continue consuming immonucal for the rest of my life.
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,
