When I was first asked to review Pruvit MLM, I was very intrigued to say the least. You can’t go anywhere in the world of health and fitness and not hear about Keto this, or Keto that.
So I was very curious to see if the products from this company are legit. As well as if the business opportunity is worth the time. After doing my research I’ve discovered some interesting things about this company that I’m going to share with you.
Let’s pull back the curtain.
What is Pruvit MLM?
Pruvit is a multi-level marketing company in the health and wellness space. The company was founded by Brian Underwood in 2013 and is based in Melissa, Texas.
The company has a focus on Ketone-based products. Ketones are produced naturally by the liver. The body uses Ketones to meet its energy requirements in situations where a person fails to consume enough of the macronutrient known as carbohydrates.
Ketone supplements are all the rage these days because they are supposed to simplify weight loss and make it easier to balance your blood sugar.
How Does Pruvit MLM Work?
Pruvit sells ketone supplements and the goal with these type of dietary supplements is to jumpstart the body’s metabolism and help shed unwanted pounds. Pruvit targets people who want to pursue a healthy lifestyle, while also making money on the side with a business opportunity.
As I mentioned, Pruvit is a multi-level marketing company and the business model is to recruit a network of distributors (the company calls them promoters) to sell their products. Promoters are required to order products as well as sponsor new members into their business.
As a promotor you earn commissions on sales and overrides on sales of everyone in your team or downline. I will talk more about the compensation plan in a minute.
If you want to join as a promoter, you can visit the Pruvit website to join, or simply get back to the person who told you about this opportunity.
What are Pruvit’s Products?
The supplements Pruvit sells are categorized under the following groups:
- Ketone OS Nat
- Ketone Reboot Kits
- Special Offers
Pruvit KETO OS NAT Splash Charged – 10 bags of 0.65 ounces per pack https://t.co/5xwNcZiyQm pic.twitter.com/HHWmvD8G2k— DavidJackson (@DavidJacksonTom) August 20, 2019
Some of the individual products include:
- Keto Chocolate Swirl
- Keto Kreme
- Keto Max Swiss Cacao
These products and more come in different varieties.
The science behind Keto Diets and supplements is divided. Some people think that Ketone supplements are the future because they use the body’s own functions to deliver weight loss over a short duration. Others argue that the efficacy of Keto Diets has been exaggerated.
My recommendation is to be very careful about health claims and such with this opportunity. Especially since the FDA doesn’t take claims on dietary supplements lightly.
This has always been my issue with selling powers, pills, lotions and potions. Without clinical backing and research, it’s hard to really differentiate your product.
How to Join Pruvit?
The company expects all of its promoters to buy Pruvit merchandise and resell it to other people.
To join this opportunity, you must pay an annual membership fee of $37. Here are some other guidelines you will need to adhere to:
- You must also be of age.
- You’ll need to provide a verifiable phone number.
- Have a valid tax identification number.
- Provide proof of residence in a country where the program is active.
In order to join the company as a promoter you must at least purchase one product. That’s in addition to your annual membership fee of $37.
Depending on the pack you choose, you could spend anywhere from $650 for a NAT Mini Experience Pack to $1,300 for a NAT Experience Pack.
The Pruvit Compensation Plan
Pruvit has a unilevel compenstaion plan and there are 11 ranks to climb.
There are two main ways to make money with this company. First, you can buy Ketone supplements from Pruvit and then resell them to customers.
Second, you earn when you recruit other members that can also become promotors of the company’s supplements.
The more members you recruit, the more income is generated and the greater opportunity for passive income through override commissions from your downline.
The company as a whole also generates revenue through annual membership fees, product sales, and new promoters.
Here are some key takeaways from the comp plan:
- With product sales, Pruvit promoters make a retailer bonus plus residual commissions.
- If your customer sets up smart ship, you receive recurring commissions on that each month. You will also be paid a residual commission on the team below you (Levels 1-3).
- There are also bonuses to hit when you first join as a Pruvit promoter. The first two you’ll want to hit in your first 30 days are the GoPro and GoMVP bonuses.
Here are some of the other features and bonuses of the comp plan:
- Endorsement Bonus
- Go Challenge Bonuses
- Weekly Pay/Daily Pay
- Monthly Pay
Here’s an excellent video that walks you through the basics of the Pruvit comp plan.
Below is the only Pruvit Promoter Compensation Plan presentation I could find. They keep their plan pretty close to the vest. And this is a couple of years old, but I don’t believe it has changed a whole lot.
Is Pruvit Legit?
Pruvit is a legitimate company that sells real products. Their ketone supplements are cutting edge and there are many happy product end users.
The company has recently had their share of complaints. Also, they have an F rating with the BBB and the company is not accredited at the time of this review. The BBB sited concerning patterns of consumer complaints as the reason for their poor rating and requested that Pruvit change their advertising claims.
According to Business for Home, Pruvit is a rapidly growing company with revenues taking a big jump year-over-year. They just missed my top mlm companies by revenues list, but could make the cut next year if they continue to grow as rapidly as they are. Here’s a quick look.
- 2018: $325 million
- 2017: $214 million
- 2016: $40 million
- 2015: $20 million
The company revenues have been growing and with over 100 million servings in 7 different countries, they appear to be doing something right.
Pros and Cons of Pruvit
- The company appears to be in high growth mode and growing very rapidly.
- In a great market with the ketone supplement market, where you have a lot of rabid buyers who consume a lot of related products.
- At the time of this review, Pruvit has an F Rating with the BBB and is not accredited. They were apparently slapped by the BBB for a concerning pattern in consumer complaints about their practices.
- The membership can get on the expensive side compared to other mlms at $650-$1,300 to start your business.
- A very competitive and crowded market with keto supplements, with cheaper options available at local health and nutrition stores.
To wrap up, that’s my Pruvit MLM review in a nutshell. This company is in a competitive market and has a modern revolutionary health mission.
But based on some consumer reports there have been some issues with complaints. Couple that with the fact that mlms in general aren’t easy to navigate and there certainly is reason for concern.
If you’ve had a positive experience with their products and you’re looking for an opportunity, it might be worth giving it a try. If you’re looking for the absolute best opportunity out there to grow your business, I’m not very confident that this is it.
