Awakend pre-launches with NFT gimmick & recycled product
Now that members of its private FaceBook group have been onboarded above everyone, Awakend has opened its prelaunch to the public.
Awakend seeks to be the first product-based MLM company with an NFT gimmick.
And while more products are planned, Awakend’s flagship is a fat burner supplement first sold over a decade ago.
Heading up Awakend’s marketing efforts are Danelle Meoli and Chip Macgill.
There are other Awakend co-founders but they’ve yet to show themselves on corporate webinars, at least the public ones.
For reference, the eight admins of Awakend’s corporate FaceBook group are
- David R. Teodosio
- John Forston III
- Danielle Meoli
- Emily Basham Jackson
- Kelly Duncan Smith
- Ashlee Headlee James
- Jodi Gordon Hoogenhoff and
- Brian Meara
I’m not claiming all of them are co-founders but I’d wager Awakend’s other co-founders are on that list.
The common thread with Awakend corporate and its co-founders is Exp Realty. Meoli claims she left the company because she was “burning out”.
Beyond Exp Realty, Meoli, Macgill and presumably Awakend’s other co-founders, have a long history in MLM.
Meoli, Macgill, John Forston, Emily Jackson, Ashlee James, Jodi Hoogenhoff and Brian Meara were all in NewULife. So there seems to be some downline continuation happening over the years.
There are three components to Awakend; AwakendHealth, AwakendSelf and AwakendWealth.
AwakendHealth pertains to the company’s nutritional supplements.
Awakend’s flagship launch product is Zenith, a leptin weight loss supplement.
As per Awakend’s marketing, overweight people suffer from leptin resistance.
Leptin resistance sabotages all dieting efforts, causing you to feel hungry and eat more even though your body has enough fat stores.
This ignites a vicious cycle.
The idea is you take a leptin supplement like Zenith to balance this out. You in turn feel full and cue weight loss.
I’m not going to pretend like I’m an expert in this field but I did do some research.
Specifically with respect to MLM, an interesting article on Evolv Health’s leptin offering came up from the Supplement Police;
Doctors argue that the effect of taking leptin orally to curb obesity and weight gain is non-existent. This, according to Dr. Robert H. Lustig, pediatrics professor at the University of California, is because:
Leptin is a protein. As a protein, it is therefore fully digestible in the digestive system. So taking it orally is probably a waste of time as the protein will just be broken down.
When it is broken down in the digestive system it does not reach the bloodstream. This means it does not reach the brain so no effect should occur as a result of taking it orally.
The doctor claims that most of these leptin supplements that are advertised do not contain leptin as they know there is no way it reaches the bloodstream.
Instead, they contain ingredients that have been tested and tried and have been known to create a feeling of fullness. So this means that the Reboot product could amount only to false advertisement.
This is from the Cleveland Clinic;
How do I raise my leptin levels?
Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do to raise your leptin levels to decrease hunger and appetite, since your leptin levels are directly related to how much adipose tissue your body has.
Since leptin is a hormone your body makes and not a nutrient (like vitamin C or protein), no foods contain leptin.
Since leptin is a relatively new discovery, scientists are still working to learn more about it, including how it affects obesity and weight loss.
And this from Healthline;
Can Leptin Resistance Be Reversed?
The best way to know if you are leptin resistant is to look in the mirror.
If you have a lot of body fat, especially in the belly area, then you are almost certainly leptin resistant.
It is not entirely clear how leptin resistance can be reversed, though theories abound.
Some researchers believe that reducing diet-induced inflammation may help reverse leptin resistance. Focusing on an overall healthy lifestyle is also likely to be an effective strategy.
Though there is no simple way to eliminate leptin resistance, you can make long-term lifestyle changes that may improve your quality of life.
Update 22nd September 2022 – Just to clarify some of my own misunderstandings on leptin, which readers have brought up in the comments, Zenith doesn’t actually contain leptin.
Rather, the idea behind the ingredients in Zenith is to reduce leptin. Reducing leptin levels is believed to correlate with appetite suppression. /end update
Awakend are not naming the product Zenith is a relabel of but do acknowledge it was sold by another MLM company in the past.
They got that product, they were doing well. They stopped ordering from the manufacturer, excuse me the formulator, and they decided to make their own; reverse engineer it. And they got slammed with a lawsuit.
This lawsuit lasted fourteen years. It just ended, and we and another network marketing company were jockeying for it (the product).
And because one of the other founders of our company was good friends with the forumulator, he was able to negotiate the deal. We have the global rights to this incredible product.
Zenith is a relabel of Max International’s MaxWLX.
Max International was sued by Tripharma LLC back in February 2010. Max International had the case stayed pending arbitration, which commenced in September 2010.
The case was messy and spanned multiple related cases against other defendants. Tripharma’s Max International case docket ends with the case still in arbitration as of January 2015, then nothing happening till a trademark filing in February 2020.
I’m not really seeing any clear resolution or definitive order from the court. Given Tripharma appear to have moved on with Awakend, I’d assume a settlement with Max International was eventually reached. This could also be a judicial resolution that for reason isn’t reflected on the case docket.
In any event, that’s the story behind Awakend’s Zenith.
Is rebranding a supplement from a decade ago a bad thing?
Not if it works.
To the right we have nutritional supplement information for MaxWLX.
The same for Zenith hasn’t been made public but one would assume it’s the same or similar.
The quote from Dr. Robert H. Lustig above stands out to me;
Leptin is a protein. As a protein, it is therefore fully digestible in the digestive system. So taking it orally is probably a waste of time as the protein will just be broken down.
MaxWLX and Zenith might very well work as appetite suppressants, but not because of leptin.
In any event leptin supplements are readily available, as are of course appetite suppressants. I’m still unclear as to what makes Zenith any different to existing offerings.
Retail pricing hasn’t been released but on a recent corporate webinar, Chip Macgill stated distributors would pay $135 a month on autoship.
Awakend Self is a personal development component of the MLM opportunity that
teaches you how to rewire your brain and manifest the incredible life you are more than capable of designing and living.
Rewiring brains huh? One might say Awakend Mind seeks to clean people’s brains to be more compatible with the MLM opportunity?
Awakend Self also has a free workout platform they’re calling AwakendBody:
Although they keep telling people it’s OK if they don’t understand it, Awakend’s other marketing drawcard is its NFTs.
This is part of Awakend Wealth, the MLM opportunity.
Let’s address the cartoon elephant JPG in the room: While MLM and cryptocurrency are synonymous with securities fraud, I haven’t seen anything in Awakend’s NFT offering that I’d identify as securities fraud.
But that’s not to say it isn’t a pointless scummy cash grab.
Here’s Danelle Meoli introducing Awakend’s NFT offering;
Whoever opens a company in network marketing and direct sales, and marries web 3 technology, NFTs … whoever does that first, it’s gonna go viral. It’s gonna rock the industry.
Our backoffice is the first in the history of direct sales to actually have the technology in our backoffice, all integrated. It took months and it is now ours. We can take crypto if we want. We can sell NFTs if we want.
Other companies are going to take this concept and run with it. You are in a company that is literally, it’s uh historic what we’re doing.
Having listened to Awakend’s NFT spiel, I’m left asking “why?” Why does this need to exist? We’ll get to that in a bit but first I want to bring you up to speed.
Again, this from Meoli;
You don’t really need to know what an NFT is. You don’t need to know metaverse, we’re not that company.
What we’re doing is every time we open a new country, we’ll have a new set of 22,222 of these amazing pieces of art.
They’re digital. They’ll show up in your backoffice. You’ll be able to wear it on a shirt at a convention. You’ll have swag that has your piece of artwork. You can share it with the world, let people know you own one.
But what it really is, it’s a digital badge or aka a digital pass.
So, like a regular distributorship from any other MLM company? I mean if you really wanted to there’s nothing stopping you printing your favorite JPG onto a t shirt and wearing it around.
Hell you can right-click someone else’s NFT and get it printed, granted this would be copyright infringement (assuming the NFT artwork itself isn’t stolen, which they commonly are).
You can also let people “around the world” know you’re an Awakend distributor… without the NFT.
So again, why does this exist?
Awakend are selling NFTs through three-tiered Founder’s Packs (click to enlarge):
As I understand it the NFTs across the $1295, $2495 and $3495 tiers are the same. It’s also important to note that Awakend’s NFTs cannot be sold on the open market, they are locked within the company.
They can be sold to someone else within Awakend, just like a regular distributorship.
So again, why does this exist?
That question brings us to the scummy side of Awakend, which is entirely contained within their integration of crypto (this shouldn’t come as a surprise).
Awakend hope to flog 22,222 NFTs. This provides an instant cashflow range of $28.7 million to $77.6 million. Thrive products are bundled with Founder’s Packs, so we can knock a bit off – but we’re still talking tens of millions of dollars in profit.
Awakend could just as easily scrap the NFTs and price their Founder’s Packs accordingly but dId YoU hEaR? eVeRyOnE’s DoInG wEb3!
If making tens of millions on the sale of cartoon jpgs wasn’t scummy enough – the primary benefit of owning an Awakend founder NFT is “first access for future NFT launches”.
That’s right, the ten of millions Awakend hopes to generate in its prelaunch is for North America and Canada only. The company seeks to monetize each country it launches into, with a new set of NFTs
And by paying thousands now, Awakend’s founder distributors get the privilege of paying more money for more NFTs in each country Awakend migrates to.
Whether you sign up as a founder or later as a regular distributor, you’re already a distributor. So why do you need to buy anything when Awakend opens to a new country?
Tens of millions of dollars in instant company profit. That’s why.
And due to the nature of NFTs, presumably once an internal marketplace is set up and distributors can list their NFTs for sale, Awakend gets a cut of each sale.
Why just run a regular MLM company when you can milk your distributors when they sign up, when you open a new country and when your distributors sell their position?
If it wasn’t obvious, anything Awakend is promising distributors through NFTs already exists in non-crypto MLM companies. The NFT side of the business is just a cash grab – like every corporate NFT offering is.
Rather than be honest and acknowledge that, Chip Macgill insists
whatever you invest in these founder packs, you will get an exponential return throughout your organization.
Look even if this is all new to you and you’ve never heard of NFTs or crypto before, the bare minimum you need to know is they were a brief fad between late 2020 and early 2021.
If you didn’t create NFTs and flog them to gullible investors during that brief six-month period, you missed out on the scam. If you’re just getting into NFTs in mid 2022, you’re lapping up the last dregs of a toxic cash grab cocktail.
Whatever other plans, if any, Awakend has for cryptocurrency outside of MLM, nothing good for distributors will come of it
The last thing I want to touch on is Founder’s Packs coming with rank promotion:
- the $1295 Essential Founder’s Pack provides one year of Sapphire rank commission rates;
- the $2495 Premier Founder’s Pack provides three years of Ruby rank commission rates; and
- the $3495 Elite Founder’s Pack provides five years of Diamond rank commission rates.
Granted Awakend’s compensation plan hasn’t been made public yet, but “pay to play” in MLM is one of the identifiable foundations of a pyramid scheme.
Other red flags are Awakend tracking and paying commissions on Founder’s Pack recruitment, behind a $50 paywall.
Awakend are hoping to flog 22,222 Founder’s Pack NFTs by October. Prelaunch distributors are being charged $50 to reserve a Founder’s Pack spot now, with the balance due in October.
Awakend are also not letting distributors sign up for cheaper options until all 22,222 Founder’s Pack NFTs are sold.
Customer orders are expected to open in October too (that’s right, Awakend’s six-week pre-launch is all about recruitment and flogging NFTs).
Pending the release of compensation details, BehindMLM will be publishing a complete Awakend review.
Update 1st September 2022 – Uncertainty, surrounding Awakend’s claims that Zenith is an exclusively licensed formula, has prompted formulator Vietal Nutrition to issue a statement.
That has unfortunately only raised even more questions as to Zenith’s exclusivity.
Update 14th September 2022 – TriPharma (dba Vietal Nutrition) has secured appointment of a Receiver.
The Receiver will be put in charge of First Fruits Business Ministry (FFBM). Generated revenue will be put towards satisfying TriPharma’s 2013 judgment against FFBM.
The legitimacy of Zenith’s exclusivity is also tied to the outcome of TriPharma’s October 2013 case against FFBM (discussed in further detail in the update link above).
Update 5th October 2022 – Awakend is still in prelaunch but BehindMLM has published an (almost) complete review.
Despite purportedly making “record breaking sales”, retail pricing for Zenith has still not been publicly disclosed.
Obviously a bunch of former Exp Realty distributors didn’t come up with the NFT side of Awakend.
So who’s the actual crypto bro behind the grift?
Most network marketing company owners are crooks. They start a company, rake their millions, do a name change or product change, milk unsuspected newbies and move on to the next grift.
It’s rare to find a legitimate great product, great compensation plan and integrity program, owners and people at the top all in one company.
If the product is that great, why use NM and not regular retail channels that can get to a lot of consumers wonderful results?
Some of them with their protein powders charge 5x what you can find at a health food store with better quality and an NPN number.
All hype and FOMO frenzy in a cult full of vultures and sharks. No wonder MLM still has a bad reputation.
I remember Amway (I never got involved) they apparently sold lots of tapes…
Maybe the plan is that after sinking all your money into imaginary trading cards, you won’t be able to afford to stuff your face with cake sandwiches anymore.
Instant noo yoo.
Pump the NFTs and dump the pounds!
I’ve known Danelle Meoli for years. She bankrupted her exhusband, left him. Sold vitamins, sold solar panels and skin care products. Moves from one scam to the next.
You will never see a picture of her entire body. Supplements have never worked for her.
There is a lot of misinformation in this article.
I was on that OG product 14 years ago and it’s the real deal. It doesn’t have leptin in it, it actually lowers the leptin hormone in the blood.
The product has a double patent and double-blind placebo controlled studies. Real science. Plus my own experience on it. I’ve never dropped weight so easily.
There is a reason they’ve been fighting over it for 14 years – it’s that good. Weight loss is the holy grail of nwm and this product is the holy grail of weight loss IMO.
I’ve done $1M monthly enrolment tree volume with another weight loss not nearly as good as this one and I predict this is going to dwarf that. I’m strapping myself in lol.
1. As I understand leptin prevents hunger. Reducing it would make you more hungry no?
2. I’ve seen a lot of talk about studies. Where are they?
3. They weren’t fighting over Max WXL for “over 14 years”. A lawsuit was filed over infringement.
And how much of that was retail?
Oz, the white paper is on the website. And even a the teeniest Google effort will explain how the hormone Leptin works.
I’m too busy with my business to do your investigative journalism for you.
I love your stuff on this blog, it’s helped me a lot over the years. But this time? You should do a deeper dive. This is going to be a very big deal.
1. There was no Awakend website when I published this article.
2. You don’t think I looked up leptin?
Unless I’m reading that wrong, reducing leptin = increased hunger response. That seems counterproductive to losing weight.
If you want to make marketing claims about studies, pony them up or stop violating the FTC Act.
Yeah everyone loves BehindMLM… until we review your company. Funny thing is the methodology everybody appreciates and has come to expect doesn’t change from review to review.
I went looking for Awakend’s website, found it and located the provided study.
It’s from 2008 and the first thing I noticed was the doctoring of “Zenith”.
Zenith didn’t exist back then but that’s not how scientific studies work. You can’t just edit them as you please. That makes them academically meaningless.
Provide the original study and either confirm Zenith is based on the exact same formula, or you’re misleading consumers.
I’m also noting Awakend fail to provide compensation details while soliciting consumer to sign up for the business opportunity. This is another compliance red flag.
And there it is. Another disingenuous shill put to rest.
Facebook Hunbot quote detected. Saw this exact wording yesterday on a Hun’s page that was being very dodgy about what she offered. Had to “DM” to find out
Obviously very shy about being in an MLM
Thanks for your review. It’s a money grab. My questions to my sponsor were “How did they acquire rights to the product?” And “at what cost?” As the product is no longer on the market. He did some digging and found that their “clinical trials” were more bogus than truth. On note for the Tripharma Litigation, states “MaxWLX was defectively manufactured” as “The ingredients of WLX were not digestible. Distributors at Max complained the product made them physically ill…”
We both dropped it!
I’m deeply saddened at how this whole thing happened. I watched for a week as multiple top leaders stated on social media that they were resigning.
I asked them and I asked Danelle directly if she was also leaving. Everyone of them DENIED that she was going anywhere, as did she.
I was in her Facebook group of over 6000 ppl. I had my entire team (little compared to many, but still, it was my extra paycheck) in there, trusting Danelle that it was a safe space for me to add them over the past few years.
Without notice, she changed the name of the group, took down NewULife posts, and began promoting her new company. Everyone was SHOCKED. It was so unprofessional.
What’s more offensive than this is that she promotes herself as a Christian (Ozedit: derails removed)
The Word tells us that leaders are held to a higher standard, and she will be! She has destroyed so many lives by these unethical business practices.
Oh, and I know that a LOT of these new “leaders” in her company were also in EXP Realty, and they openly and willfully recruited NUL members into EXP (other realtors).
NewULife allowed that and allowed them to continue collecting fat paychecks, but they went after other people who went into finance or insurance companies, or other opportunities with the exact same payout structure as EXP realty, WITH TEETH, and took their hard earned paychecks.
The favoritism was extremely obvious and I regret that I didn’t resign myself from this a long time ago.
What I DO know is that these stupid NFT-pay-to-play tokens and literally allowing people to PURCHASE top ranks in the company and this alone takes “sketchy” to a whole new level.
I give this company a year. If that. I found out last week, via my uncle, who is an attorney, that what they are doing could possibly be illegal.
It’s called front-loading and there is no doubt that an Attorney General will get ahold of this and set it on FIRE. Watch and see.
Additionally, all one needs to do is examine the leadership of this “Awakened” thing to see where this will go.
These people will act like your BEST FRIEND as LONG AS you are making them MONEY, but the moment you make a decision that is what’s best for your family, you are persona-non-grata to them. You are DEAD to them.
It’s a bunch of FAKE BS and I see it so clearly now.
The Word tells us we will know one another by the Fruit on our trees: and looking at the line up, and the way they set this up, it’s ROTTEN fruit. A total money grab for Danelle and no benefit to anyone else. Absolutely despicable.
I’m embarrassed that I ever promoted her, called her a “friend”, believed in her and all these other “top leaders” that took her bait and left everyone else hanging by a thread.
Anyone who gets into this scheme of hers needs to know right away that she is a double-minded woman with a Jezebel spirit and she should be avoided at all cost.
She preaches a false gospel that is leading many to hell. She should fall on her face and repent. I don’t know how she lives with herself or how she sleeps at night.
NewULife was my first and last MLM experience and it’s left me reeling….grieving that I ever trusted this whole thing and trusted Danelle Meoli. She is not who she pretends to be.
I also was taken by this woman but I quickly realized that I been scammed and got out.
So glad I found this! Have a friend who joined 2 weeks ago and has been sending me f.b. messages, emails with zoom calls, emails woth info…it’s unreal.
I smelled scam with the NFT, and no product, no ingredients, bad vibe about it all.
At 135 a month, 50 to join, and the exclusive NFT grab….wow, they will make millions in no time at all.
Product will ne useless, people will spend 135 a month …pay to play, and scam others. I will keep checking back for updates.
I hope this gets shut down before to many people lose their shirts!!
What Gets me …… If you are going to make a Good Solid Sound Business Decision ….You would want to know these things …..
Who are the Investors they talk about ….. Who are the other Co-Founders? Who is the CEO. President and the Corporate Team ….. ?
They are talking about ALL these Miraculous Results with NO Behavior Modification ….. ( which by the way is IMPOSSIBLE ) …. Where is this Miracle Ingredient Deck ……
Absolutely Nothing …… Other than a Bunch of Front Loading ….. and Pay to Play Positions ….. NOTHING MORE !!!
And everyday comes a New Story ….. the Sh$^^^^%^% keeps getting Deeper and Deeper !!!
So to confirm….. you’re grieving and feel as though you were left hanging. Did she also take the product away from you guys leaving you the inability to continue to market it?
Failing to see here where your business was dependent on her FB group providing communication and training. All was wonderful with your “team”, earning $$ until she decided to go off and do her own thing?
How does this leave you with the inability to provide the product to customers and continue to operate your business? It doesn’t.
The clearer message here is that, You’re upset because she moved on and for whatever reason you didn’t go or weren’t invited to be a ground level starter. Your feelers are hurt and she went off with our you.
Since you can’t seem to support your team or work your business with out her, MLM is awful and she is the Jezebel? LoL
All was great for you, making money and now it’s her fault your business is destroyed because she went out on her own.
Hmm…. Take away, 1. Your product must suck and favoritism didn’t include you 2. Your friendship contribution is not support, but one to rant about her new path and generalize it as her fault and you’re some victim.
Wow….that all sounds so gospel of you.
Interesting that you’re all placing focus on the NFT, when all it is a small piece of a package offering a higher discount of bulk product, training, exclusive perks and a piece of clip art.
The Pink Cadillac cosmetic MLM sellers must also be a scam because they have to invest big bucks to get the full line up of product?? That’s quite incredible they have managed to be a #1 for nearly 60 years and haven’t been shut down yet.
Web 3.0 is blockchain. You may want to educate (Ozedit: butthurt, derails and whacky conspiracy theories removed)
Nobody is paying $3495 for $1500 of overpriced Trisynex. NFT is Awakend’s business model.
Beware the shill that tries to downplay Awakend’s scummy crypto business model.
Web 3 is a buzzword crypto dorks made up to shill scams to greater fools. NFTs are over. Time to come up with a new scam.
Yet… you still say nothing convincing to support your claim.
(Ozedit: blockchain bro nonsense removed)
Read the article. Herp derp.
I assume you can math too?
Nobody is paying $3495 for $1500 of overpriced Trisynex.
And yet your posts waffled on about the NFTs and other blockchain bro nonsense instead of trying to explain why retail buyers would want to pay a 233% markup for magic weight loss pills.
I was in the high level meeting at Max International when one of the founders said they weren’t going to pay for the license of the original product and would come out with their own version. That’s why Max got sued.
I saw a lot of people lose weight on the original product. If this is indeed that product, it’s different than what Max brought to market. Not sure what’s up with the NFT stuff.
In the 90’s …. Everybody Lost Weight on Metabolife as well … Until the Heart Attacks started happening …… Same with Ephedra……. Unfortunately …. WEightlos is Not found in a PILL ALONE !!!
I saw it there too …. When they did the right things …. Diet …. Reduce Caloric Intake…. Hydration …. Rest…. Moving Around…. Nobody took ANY One Pill and then the Magic Happened !!!
It’s ALL Behavior Modification !!!!
Inaccurate information is all over this article.
Nobody is required to purchase the founder packs, they are purely optional. All founders packs come with physical product and tickets to the launch event that equals the value charged for the pack.
The NFT, dedicated line to CS, backstage passes and VIP seats at events, extra training, giveaways, receiving rank upgrades, etc. are all over-the-top value adds.
You can start with a 2 pack or a 4 pack of the product at a reduced price or, come October when the company officially launches, just buy the supplement as a customer. No one is required to become a rep.
Personally, if this stuff works (and I see no reason to believe it won’t after seeing results from testers who I personally know), I’ll be selling it en mass and could care less if I sign up a rep or not.
The product has patents protecting it. (Ozedit: snip, see below)
If we were to run odds on the majority of funds Awakend generated during pre-launch being tied to packs, versus straight product sales to retail customers (non-distributors), what are you placing your bets on?
I’d be surprised if it was even a 90%/10% split.
The Elite Founder Pack has $1500 of Zenith (12 bottles, $125 a bottle). Who the fuck is paying $1995 for tickets to an MLM event?
It’s an NFT cash grab targeting naive dumbasses. If you’re on here pretending it’s anything but, congratulations – you’re the target market.
Awakend could just as easily not use NFTs and charge a few hundo like every other MLM company does for tickets. $1995 is literally only because “NFT”.
No it doesn’t. See here – https://behindmlm.com/companies/zenith-patent-mess-deepens-after-vietal-nutrition-steps-in/
BEWARE. BEWARE. BEWARE. Everyone involved in starting this company has a record. Look them up.
Rodney Brent James (he’s the one collecting the money or at least it’s his cell phone number that appears on bank statements) has a LONG RAP sheet for some pretty despicable things.
Danelle’s brother David works at the NFT company which will likely create the NFTs…called Whisp.
Look up the CEO Steven Doumar…the FTC has a multi-million civil judgement against him for preying on drug addicts and alcoholics in FL.
The “formulator” Evan Dameshek from Tripharma who is the person behind the many, many years of lawsuits was arrested for committing Bankruptcy Fraud while trying to crush Imagenetix out of existence.
Google his name + the phrase “Bankruptcy Fraud”. The guy he was arrested with on that case (last name Leppo) was also arrested with a dozen other people for illegal gambling and racketeering. Nice crowd.
The so-called special exclusive patent is EXPIRED!!! Anyone can use it…they know that…and they keep pushing the lie that it’s “exclusive”.
That’s illegal. STAY FAR AWAY from these thieves and liars. They have already ruined many people’s lives in order to enrich themselves.
There it is. Co-founders brother is the crypto bro behind Awakend’s NFT cash grab. Thanks for filling that in.
has anyone seen the horrobly photo shopped phoos on facebook they are all using?
Danelles brother works at Whisp you idiots. They do not create NFTs nor are they involved in Awakend.
You’re getting that false information from 2 guys she used to work with that are butt hurt that she left their company.
They assumed Whisp was involved. Whisp is in no way, shape or form a producers of NFTs and is not associated with Awakend.
Some of you need to get your facts straight. The amount of false statements in these articles is laughable.
So who’s behind the crypto bro side of Awakend then? The brother of the founder of the company being a crypto bro fits.
Yeah he might not have sat down and right clicked the JPEGS and burned down half the Amazon to create them, but it’s obvious who’s behind Awakend’s NFT grift.
Feel free to provide evidence to the contrary. I’ve also asked for a criminal case number and information on Vietal Nutrition’s claimed study rights.
Your next comment will provide this information or spam-bin.
Hey Madison, please let us know what your “due diligence” and truthful journalism has revealed about this??
Steve Doumar defrauded alot of people with his company TapText… so he had to change the name to WHISP.
Evan Dameshek was arrested and plead guilty to fraud while using the name Tripharma…so he had to change it Vietal Nutrition.
I know you want to get rich quick and SKINNY….but it’s just not going to happen. Save your $3500 and just call it a day already!!
Looks like there is More Focus on the NFT’s in their Private Groups ……
Here is a Good One ……
They are already deducting peoples bank accounts for Product that doesnt even exist ….. Now I see a friend trying … (key word ) Trying to get a refund……
Charging for Products that don’t even have bottles or Labels and Not in stock ??
Is this even legal to do ??
I’m not sure as to the legality but I feel comfortable in saying that it violates the terms of service as to Awakend’s merchant account. Basically the company that processes their credit card purchases for them.
If enough people called their credit card company and spoke the truth, that Awakend was processing credit card orders but failing to ship merchandise those people not only would get their money back but would also place Awakend’s ability to process credit cards in jeopardy.
I was approached by a friend of mine who is trying to get me into this company and after reading all this, I WON’T BE DOING ANY OF IT!
I was in Qivana, Zija and then Isagenix. All a bunch of bullshit. built a team, but always a problem.
The packages are ridiculous. I don’t need to attend a launch for $3400. I’ll try the product if there is a product, lol.
They said the payout would be at diamond level. Yeah ok.
Thank you for all the information! I have two friends bombarding me with the PowerPoint, Zoom calls, etc! I feel really bad for the people that are getting sucked into this scam!
It’s never a good idea to pay to play. I have a feeling they will be shut down before even getting started.
What stands out to me about this article is how a couple of times you keep pointing out how taking leptin orally is a waste of time…. and that is irrelevant to to this product because the job of this product is to REDUCE LEPTIN, not give you leptin.
Hello. ! If you are going to use arguments against it, at least make the arguments make sense.
People with more and more fat, have more and more leptin, so the idea is to reduce the leptin so that your brain gets the correct signals of satiety.
Thanks. This has come up in the comments.
I’ll make a note of it in the article.
edit: The sticking point for me is still, if all you’re doing is appetite suppression – that’s only a temporary fix unless you make changes to your diet and lifestyle.
Why not just get a far cheaper appetite suppressant and make the required changes to your diet and lifestyle.
I know that’s easier said than done for most people but, if you’re considering Zenith, I’m assuming you’re already willing to implement those changes.
I’m at a company right now that will match your level of experience and bring you in at a higher level after talking with one of their higher ups. However, there is no “paying” for a position. Truly feels “scammy” to me.
I was at NewULife but didn’t like the binary compensation plan because it’s all about placement. If you’re on a leg that doesn’t have volume from above, you have to produce twice as much as those positioned better.
Didn’t feel that type of compensation plan was really “fair”…. They keep telling you it’s your mindset. I found that funny since I had been at the top of another company so I think my mindset is pretty strong.
The binary comp plan isn’t for me but many people love it; just my opinion. But, paying for a rank doesn’t sit right with me.
Why can’t they interview you and find out about your past volumes, team promotions, rank advancements and then place you according to that? Because they want the $$$$$. I’ll be interested to see where they are in a year from now.
The whole “you need to get in now” thing makes me think…. So if you don’t get in now you can’t be successful?
No. Don’t like the way this smells.

I would like to know more about the actual ingredients of this product. Has anyone done a lab test?
I asked for more specifics on the ingredients and chip said to my friend who is a rep. I’m fat, poor, a nut bag and untrustworthy bc I asked what the ingredients are.
Then I confronted him about it and I’ve never been spoke to like that in my life.
Promised during the summer to ship by Oct 31. Well if you didn’t pay thousands of dollars for the privilege of ordering overpriced diet pills… and being in secret FB groups… you’re not getting anything anytime soon.
And the owner who likes to quote the Bible and claims God gives her everything has put on the same mean girl face she wore at previous companies – warning people they better not complain or call customer support to ask questions.
Shut up and wait!!…because she’s a loving Christian woman who just happens to also idolize money.
Meanwhile, they continue to lie about the reason this product was off the market for 14 yrs.
The company and its leaders are currently being sued in CA but won’t be honest about it. Just ask their formulator Evan Dameshek/Tripharma about the lawsuit.
Awakened and Zenith:
The formula ingredients are now listed on the website under Label but….. the Ingredients are now listed as Celadrin.
Which is not from the UConn study it’s another formula wiener by Imagentix.
Celadrin is common found in joint formulas. And FB blog now closing zenith reduces leptin by reducing inflammation.
So are they suddenly switching the lane snd ingredients? From Trisynex or whatever they wa t to rebrand it as to Celadrin????
As of yesterday Celadrin is now listed as the label for Zeniyh.
I have an update on Awakend and Zenith in the works. *Should* be out today if I can finish this other article first.
Patiently waiting…it can’t be good. It’s smelled really bad from the get go.
Anyone involved in this is either brainwashed or stupid. Sorry not sorry.
Thank you for sharing this information.
My cousin asked me to support her efforts to get into the pyramid. I bought the bottles for $150 ($75/bottle) and when I read the ingredients of this magical drug, it confirmed what I suspected – Awakend is an MLM.
I’m not rich, but threw the bottles out without popping one pill. I appreciate this blog.
As a Health Coach, I sift through tons of scams daily. Everyone has it figured out and surround themselves with support.
I sat through the Zenith presentation and then join Leptin Losers on face book where they only publish weight loss and positives about Zenith Awakend.
I’ve asked questions and what can I say they love it. Even the ones that are backordered for weeks. They have done no research and allow people to be taken advantage of.
I am so frustrated how easy people will fork over their hard earned $ for a scam!
