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 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.
Tastes like the most disgusting thing ever made, has done nothing for me! in fact it made my condition worst! DON'T EVER BUY! SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR SOMETHING ELSE
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!
