Theon Global Review: Fulvic acid and turmeric drops (BOO?)
Theon Global operates in the nutritional supplement MLM niche.
Heading up Theon Global is owner Lawrence Puckett.
Puckett’s LinkedIn cites him as an owner and managing member of Theon Global since October 2020. Curiously, Theon Global LLC wasn’t set up in Texas until March 7th, 2022.
Puckett’s LinkedIn details an automotive history from 1996 to 2017.
In June 2019 Puckett (right) signed on a Vice President of sales for Navan Global.
Puckett’s LinkedIn cites him leaving Navan Global in May 2020. Navan Global’s owner, Haskell “Trey” Knight, was indicted for wire fraud a year later in May 2021.
The conduct Knight was indicted for predates Puckett’s involvement in Navan Global.
After leaving Navan Global, Puckett set up Theon Global in October 2020.
I believe Theon Global being set up as an LLC in Texas only a few months ago coincides with its launch as an MLM company.
This is based on Theon Global’s website domain being dormant until around the time Theon Global LLC was registered.
I’m unclear on what Theon Global was prior to relaunching itself as an MLM company.
Read on for a full review of Theon Global’s MLM opportunity.
Theon Global’s Products
Theon Global markets two nutritional supplements; Alpha Bios and AE17 Turmeric.
Alpha Bios is a fulvic acid supplement.
Marketing on Theon Global’s website intentionally implies Alpha Bios is a treatment for “every sickness, every disease, and every ailment”.
Alpha Bios retails for $135 for a “30 day supply” pouch.
AE17 Turmeric is a turmeric drop supplement.
Turmeric is a well-known herb that is popularly used across the globe as a traditional spice and as a dietary supplement.
Theon Global explain on their website that the name “AE17” has biblical references.
AE17 Turmeric drops retails for $99.99 for a 1 oz 30 ml bottle.
Theon Global’s Compensation Plan
Theon Global pays commissions on retail and recruited affiliate purchases of their products.
Theon Global pays commissions on sales volume generated down two levels of recruitment:
- level 1 (retail customer orders and personally recruited affiliates) – 25%
- level 2 – 12%
It’s unclear whether these percentages are based on an order’s dollar amount or reduced commissionable volume.
Joining Theon Global
Theon Global affiliate membership is free.
Theon Global Conclusion
Thanks to BlackOxygen Organics (BOO), the first thing anyone looking at a fulvic acid MLM needs to do is confirm the source isn’t Marc Saint Onge’s bog in Canada.
Onge’s bog is situated within a stone’s throw of an industrial waste facility, leading to dangerous levels of soil contamination. Onge had no problem packaging contaminated bog mud and selling it through BOO.
This lead to Health Canada recalling BlackOxygen Organics’ fulvic acid products in September 2021.
The US blocked import of Black Oxygen’s fulvic acid in August 2021, citing elevated levels of lead and arsenic.
Onge ignored the ban, opting to instead shut down BOO when caught out.
Filings in a subsequent class-action lawsuit, suggest Onge ignored the FDA’s ban because “he was not aware of any deaths directly attributable to BlackOxygen products.”
The long and short of it is nobody should be selling fulvic acid from Onge’s contaminated Canadian bog.
Like Youngevity, who TINA recently called out for doing just that, Theon Global appears to have been hastily put together to capitalize on BOO’s collapse.
On Theon Global’s own website, the company discloses;
Our products are derived from a humus deposit located in Canada.
Here we go again…
Unfortunately I have to put a question mark on definitively confirming whether Theon Global are sourcing from Onge’s toxic bog.
Marketing from Theon Global affiliates is as close as I was able to get:
Theon Global provide a CoA from Merieux NutriSciences, which reveals concerning levels of lithium and nickel.
BOO provided a CoA document too if I’m not mistaken, so take Theon Global’s CoA with a grain of salt.
Pending confirmation Theon Global’s fulvic acid isn’t being sourced from Onge’s toxic bog, for the sake of your health I’d stay well clear.
I honestly don’t know how this hasn’t become a criminal matter at this point.
As to Theon Global’s other product, $99 for turmeric drops is ridiculous.
Here’s what a five-second search on Amazon returns:
The MLM side of Theon Global is simple. You sell supplements and you get paid.
The risk of a pyramid scheme is there if the majority of Theon Global customers are also affiliates. Paying only two levels of commissions though, this isn’t much of a concern.
As far as due-diligence into Theon Global goes, you’d do far better to confirm the fulvic acid isn’t coming from Onge’s toxic bog.
On the off-change it isn’t, Theon Global’s “our fulvic acid cures everything” nonsense is still a regulatory lawsuit waiting to happen.
I did note Theon Global providing clinical studies that have nothing to do with their products on their website.
This is misleading. There are no clinical studies pertaining to Theon Global’s products.
As such any health claims made are not only illegal but also baseless.
