The Good

  • Scientific Advisory Board
  • Sponsored Athletes
  • International Presence

Scientific Advisory Board

People who are concerned about the science behind NeoLife's products can look to the expertise of the company's scientific advisory board. NeoLife scientists have been published in scientific journals such as:

  • Journal of the American College of Nutrition
  • International Journal of Toxicology
  • FASEB Journal
  • American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

The scientific advisory is also partnered with organizations such as Stanford University Health Library and the University of San Francisco. Since its formation in 1976, NeoLife's scientific advisory board has been operated by leading professionals in the field. Some of these professionals include biochemist and nutritionist Fred G. Hooper, PhD, and food scientist Laszio P. Somogyl, PhD.

Sponsored Athletes

In an effort to prove the effectiveness of its products, NeoLife sponsors athletes around the world who participate in different sports. Here are some of the athletes sponsored by NeoLife:

  • Francois Hougaard, rugby
  • Sakima Mullings, boxing
  • Ashleigh Simon, golfer
  • Tim McGuire, track and field

NeoLife's sponsorship of athletes who compete in different sports shows what can be possible by using its products.

International Presence

NeoLife's international reach has made it accessible to people in several countries. Both customers and distributors will be able to receive support either online, over the phone, and in person at a location near them.

The Bad

  • Glassdoor Ratings
  • Enrollment
  • Signup Cost

Glassdoor Ratings

NeoLife's Glassdoor ratings are among the lowest of ratings in the multi-level marketing industry. Here are the results for the Glassdoor ratings:

  • 2.2 out of 5 stars employee satisfaction
  • 31 percent would recommend NeoLife to a friend
  • 23 percent approve of CEO Jerry Brassfield

According to the Glassdoor reviews, the direct sales company struggles with keeping its employees satisfied. One review noted there is a pervasive culture of fear where employees are discouraged from expressing opinions or suggestions that do not comply with management's beliefs or perceptions.

Enrollment

People who are interested in NeoLife's opportunities may find it annoying that they must talk to a NeoLife independent distributor to enroll. Potential distributors who expect and prefer an automated enrollment process may end up signing with a different direct sales company. Individuals interested in NeoLife will not find any available pricing until they have spoken to a distributor.

High Signup Cost

Despite NeoLife's promise that its $49 signup cost includes $100 of product and a start-up kit. NeoLife's signup costs are higher than most multi-level marketing companies. People who are interested in direct sales but are strapped for cash may need to consider other companies with lower enrollment fees. People also risk paying more than $50 for products they may not actually enjoy which will result in a loss, because NeoLife does not have a money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

NeoLife's athletic sponsorships is impressive because it has partnerships with international athletes. Its scientific advisory board has partnerships with well recognized universities adding to the validity of its health claims. However, NeoLife has some of the lowest Glassdoor ratings out of the many multi-level marketing companies offering health and diet products. NeoLife also lacks a money-back guarantee and has a higher signup cost when compared to several other direct sales companies. What would we do if we were in your shoes? Evaluate other companies who have the same promises as NeoLife when it comes to improving your physical and financial health. When you're done, organize the companies according to their Glassdoor ratings and whether or not they have a money-back guarantee. You'll recognize which company is the best for you.

    The products are based in nature and backed by science! I have been using them for 18 years with only great results! The products have always been the best, now the sales department is being upgraded to give the distributors what they need to grow! THE BAD--- you need to upgrade your reviews since they appear to be outdated! The starting price is wrong in fact, you can start for nothing. Your last statement "You'll recognize which company is the best for you" is good advice, I promise if you really dig in and consider everything you will choose NeoLife every time!

    They have a money back guarantee. Some how the negatives you mention are not accurate. I have been a customer for over 20 years and have friendships with present and ex employees and distributors. They rave that this is best company in the MLM industry. They have changed so someone can start for free, and get a free web site and be able to buy at whole sale price.

    I have tried many nutritional supplements in the past but when I came across neolife supplements it was my eureka moment. It has completely transformed my life and it gets better. It is transforming my wallet as well. I previously struggled with chronic fatigue. It's gone and gone for good. I feel like a brand new person.
