Low Upfront Costs

Individuals can become independent distributors for NuVerus International by purchasing a success kit for $49.95. Additional fast start packages ranging from $199.95 to $999.95 may be purchased to be eligible for higher commission income potential in the company's binary compensation plan.


NuVerus International provides new enrollees with marketing and training materials, access to a personalized website free for one year, a virtual office, weekly training sessions, and wholesale pricing on products.


NuVerus International was the the first multi-level marketing company to pioneer the "Double Option" pay structure. In this structure, all sponsored associates and customers are placed in both the distributor's unilevel tree and dual team tree. The unilevel tree begins generating commissions with the first sponsored customers and associates through four generations of active orders. If there is an inactive customer or associate in the unilevel tree, the company will compress commissions so that the distributor earns a full four generations of commissions. The dual team tree allows for unlimited depth and puts no limitations on the sales volumes and order amounts that a distributor can generate. NuVerus International adds up the sales volume on all orders in both trees each week. Distributors are able to earn up to 20 percent commission payouts on the matching volume that has occurred within the two trees. Any remaining volume not counted is carried forward to the next week, meaning that distributors never lose volume that generated commissions.


NuVerus offers four different nutritional supplements. Its flagship product, NuVerus Plus, is designed to provide consumers with large quantities of antioxidants to cleanse the body. The NuVerus Elav8 Energy Drink contains green tea caffeine, fruits, and a base of aloe vera to boost energy levels and prevent dehydration. NuVerus Trim can be added to water to reduce hunger cravings. The company's NuBlend products act as probiotics and deliver high-quality fiber and protein and low carbohydrates for under 100 calories per serving.

The Bad

  • Low Earning Potential
  • Order Minimums
  • No Scientific Evidence
  • Little Sales and Marketing Training

Low Earning Potential

The expected revenue for NuVerus consultants after selling $1,000 worth of nutraceutical products is $150. The expected revenue after selling $10,000 worth of products is $1,950. These commission payouts are lower than the average payouts of similar companies in the multi-level marketing industry.

Order Minimums

To remain an active member and be eligible to receive commissions and financial incentives, independent distributors are required to order a specific amount of product from NuVerus International on a monthly basis. If the nutraceutical products are not ordered, the company will cancel membership and distributors will not longer be eligible to receive earned bonuses and commissions.

No Scientific Evidence

The cost of NuVerus International's products can be quite expensive for some household budgets. For example, a 32-ounce bottle of NuVerus Plus is $59.95 for a 30-day supply.

Additionally, the company provides no scientific evidence on its corporate website that proves that its offerings are any better than over-the-counter nutritional supplements that can be purchased in drugstores and supermarkets.

Little Sales and Marketing Training

NuVerus International's distributor training is very limited and not up-to-date with modern technologies. For example, the company does not offer education or training in effective sales and marketing techniques. 

Individuals without experience in these areas may want to consider pursuing additional business education on their own or enrolling with a different company that does offer this type of training.

The Bottom Line

NuVerus International is a multi-level marketing company that provides nutraceutical products. The initial cost to join as an independent distributor is relatively low and distributors can earn commissions and bonuses through the company's "Double Option" compensation plan.

However, NuVerus International's commission payouts are lower than those of similar multi-level marketing companies. Additionally, NuVerus International provides little sales and marketing training to its independent distributors.
