I agree with every one here. I worry about the long term affects. It's just like all the medications they advertise on TV. The side affects are worse then the supposed ailment you are taking them for. I'd call the Better Business Bureau and then the prosecutors office.

Don't bother. This SCREAMS scam to me! The first ones in do well, the rest of us do not. Save your time and money. See how your friend does in 3 months, 6 months. If it's the real deal, you can get in on it later.

Also, how do you know the product will help YOUR health? Fibromyalgia is sort of a 'come and go' disease. It can be very bad for weeks, months or years, and then you have a good week, month or year. At least that's been my history with it. (I'm one of the "lucky" fibromyalgia people as I finally found a good medication regiment that keeps me in functional shape most of the time. Even so, there are days, weeks, etc.)

In any event, you should always check with your dR or pharmacist before you start any new supplements or medications. Please check with your local Better Business Bureau to see what they know about the company and it's products.

As others have suggested, google the company and the supplement. There will probably be many sites to go to, so look through a lot of them.

Quick translation for diabetics out there. Organic glyconutrient=sugar!

I agree. It seems no one actually sells the stuff, just corral more suckers in. It is true. If it is too good to be true STAY AWAY.

Absolutely not. Only the first in the scheme make anything and then the Pryamid topples into bankruptcy as more and more join so it kills itself. What about Bernard Madoff and his long prison sentence? THINK!

I would never participate in a scheme like that...just don't trust that sort of thing.

Several years ago in Florida there was a pyramid scam of buying into popular motels. My father-in-law bit, dumped a bunch of his savings in it. He got payments for a short while, after that there was no money coming and his investment disappeared. This was a big lesson on greed, IF IT SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

There's a reason we don't hear much about these products after the initial push and hullabaloo.

I agree-- tried Noni and didn't see any benefits. The only ones making the money are the people who sell you on the idea.

Save your money and talk with your doctor. Better get information from a trained professional than from somebody reeling out a line of yahoo.

Just got a Facebook request from a friend to watch a video on VISI - some sort of drink. Must be the same kind of thing.
