Research Team

The Bad

  • Low Commission
  • FDA Issues
  • Transfer Factor

Low Commission

4Life offers an industry low commission rate at two percent compared to other multi-level marketing companies in the health and nutrition industry. It's difficult to see where it is possible for distributors to make a profit. 4Life also has a higher enrollment cost, with startup kits at $150 for new distributors.

FDA Issues

For individuals who do not want to be part of a company who has had issues with the FDA in the past, 4Life is not the best option. 4Life has not been at risk of an FTC or FDA shut down, but it has struggled with non-compliant marketing and a major lawsuit.

Transfer Factor

People who are skeptical of 4Life's flagship product, Transfer Factor, will find that it is not widely accepted by the medical community. While some customers will share their success stories, different sites are skeptical. Transfer factors are possibly safe when used short-term (three months) and there is not enough research supporting the safety of using transfer factor for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The Bottom Line

If you're looking for the best company that will help you improve your health and wealth at the same time, 4Life may be a company to consider. 4Life's consistent sales since 1998 can be credited to its range of health products. While there are arguments against the effectiveness of the 4Life Transfer Factor as well as the validity of 4Life's claims, the FDA has not shut down 4Life. Our recommendation? If you have deeper pockets to start with, add 4Life to your list of multi-level marketing companies to consider.

That's weird because those are the only products approved by the PDR physicians desk reference so I don't understand how they could been sued by the FDA My mom was diagnosed with Mitrochondrial Disease and believe her change has been amazing I been a consumer for a year now and the difference is totally different and I'm gonna become an independent distributor now I think the company compensation is really good some people think that they gonna become millionaire in two days a big difference from Amway which their distributors get stuck at certain level and no help from their uplead I can't imagine to go back to Amway this company as a right now I been training and their is amazing and I have support from every diamond and platinum in the states and out the states it's an amazing company

4Life is Great! It has helped with my son's fatty liver return to normal range. The ALT used to be 183. Now after taking Super Detox, one of 4Life products, now it is 35. The normal range is <=66. Also it has helped my dry skin after trying products and one recommended by my doctor. Enummi skin recovery formula helps and I have no more dry skin.

In the beginning I was very skeptical about the products. However, after noticing a significant change in my sons arm (eczema) I became a believer. Furthermore, this company offers a very great opportunity to develop public speaking abilities and lets not forget the compensation. Recently, 4Life Research has come up with a Loyalty Program which is an auto-ship program; rewarding you additionally with a percentage AND giving you a free monthly product. Overall, I truly believe the compensation is great and I would not change this company for any other. Anybody can sell you a vitamin, a shake, a supplement but nobody will be able to sell you transfer factors; this company has gone a step ahead and patented their products. We have virgin territory people; if your looking for a network company to make good income; 4Life Research is for you.

The product rezoom do not have the same ingredients that has kept me a loyal consumer. I've been using this product since 1999 and the energy and strength I would have after just two weeks of use was amazing. My sexual stamina was the best you guys did something to this product a few years ago and had to put back what was missing. Rezoom is not what it was and I'm not happy.

Excellent product! For people that had cancer like me. Transfer Factor is an excellent cell reconstructive alternative. The people is great! And I have the chance that my products can be for free if I share the benefits with others. It is a win win business!
