Uforia Science Review: Foru International bought out, rebooted
Uforia Science operates in the nutritional supplement MLM niche and operates out of Utah in the US.
Unfortunately Uforia Science provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.
Further research reveals Uforia Science marketing material naming Ron Williams (right) as founder and CEO of the company.
Why this information is not provided on the Uforia Science website is unclear.
According to a Harcourt Health article published in September 2018, Uforia Science is owned by Terry Lacore.
This is a game changer, and Williams knows that. He has partnered with Terry Lacore of the Lacore Enterprises fame.
Williams successfully ran Forever Green and Lacore successfully runs Lacorre Enterprises.
Both men are used to the multi-million dollar health and nutritional space.
In fact, they met during a law suit. Lacorre [sic] was suing Forever Green over the formula for a keto drink.
Williams won, but in the end, Williams also won over Terry.
The CEOs decided they really liked each other, so Terry offered Ron the chance to head up the Üforia line, and Ron jumped at it.
I believe the lawsuit referenced is that of Pruvit vs. ForeverGreen.
BehindMLM reviewed ForeverGreen in 2013. Based on the company’s compensation plan, we found ForeverGreen was heavily focused on affiliate autoship recruitment.
Ron Williams resigned as ForeverGreen’s CEO and President in April 2017. Williams remains tied to the company however as a standing member of ForeverGreen’s Board of Directors.
Read on for a full review of the Uforia Science MLM opportunity.
Uforia Science Products
Uforia Science markets a Ustart DNA test kit for $159.95.
The ÜFORIA Kit contains instructions on collecting and providing your sample to be analyzed from our CLIA-certified lab.
Sending DNA samples to Uforia Science lab for analysis is an additional $99.
The lab then processes your DNA, and your genetic data is used to generate your personalized report custom designer nutrition that contains nearly 100 peer-reviewed plant based ingredients along with raw food, super foods, prebiotics, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
The kit comes with a 30 day supply of vegetable supplements Uforia Science are calling “Pretrition”.
Although it doesn’t appear to be available yet, Uforia Science intends to eventually provide a powder-based nutritional formula based on collected DNA data.
As at the time of publication however I believe Uforia Science are only selling the Ustart DNA kit.
The Uforia Science Compensation Plan
Uforia Science pays affiliates on the sale of Ustart DNA Kits to retail customers and recruited affiliates.
Note that in order to qualify for commissions, each Uforia Science affiliate must have a personal standing order of at least 100 PV a month.
Uforia Science Affiliate Ranks
There are ten affiliate ranks within the Uforia Science compensation plan.
Along with their respective qualification criteria they are as follows:
- Beginner – sign up as a Uforia Science affiliate
- Builder – generate 100 RV a month and recruit and maintain at least one active affiliate
- Producer – maintain 100 RV a month and recruit and maintain at least two active affiliates
- Mover – generate and maintain 200 RV a month and recruit and maintain at least three active affiliates (each of the three recruitment legs must contain a Builder or higher)
- Shaker – generate and maintain 300 RV a month, maintain at least three personally recruited active affiliates (each of the three recruitment legs must contain a Producer or higher) and generate and maintain 1000 GV a month
- Leader – maintain 300 RV a month, maintain at least three personally recruited active affiliates (each of the three recruitment legs must contain a Mover or higher) and generate and maintain 5000 GV a month
- Innovator – maintain 300 RV a month, maintain at least three personally recruited active affiliates (each of the three recruitment legs must contain a Leader or higher) and generate and maintain 12,500 GV a month
- Generator – maintain 300 RV a month, recruit and maintain at least four active affiliates (each of the three recruitment legs must contain a Leader or higher) and generate and maintain 25,000 GV a month
- Creator – maintain 300 RV a month, recruit and maintain at least five active affiliates (each of the three recruitment legs must contain a Leader or higher) and generate and maintain 37,500 GV a month
- Rainmaker – maintain 300 RV a month, recruit and maintain at least six active affiliates (each of the three recruitment legs must contain a Creator or higher) and generate and maintain 50,000 GV a month
Uforia Science classifies an affiliate as “active” if they have generate 100 PV a more each month.
PV stands for “Personal Volume” and is sales volume generated via sales to retail customers and an affiliate’s own orders.
RV erroneously stands for “Retail Volume” and is made up of
- PV from an affiliate’s own purchases
- PV from an affiliate’s retail customers and
- PV from an affiliate’s personally recruited Beginner ranked affiliates
GV stands for “Group Volume” and is made up of an affiliate’s personally generated PV and that of their downline across three unilevel team levels.
While I assume Uforia Science pays commissions on the sale of Ustart DNA kits to retail customers, there is no mention of retail commissions in the Uforia Science compensation plan.
Uforia Science pays residual commissions via a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
Uforia Science caps payable unilevel team levels at seven.
Residual commissions are paid as a percentage of sales volume generated across these eight levels as follows:
- Beginners do not receive residual commissions
- Builders earn 5% on levels 1 and 2
- Producers and Movers earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3 and 6% on level 4
- Shakers earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3 and 6% on levels 4 and 5
- Leaders earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3, 6% on levels 4 and 5 and 2% on levels 6 and 7
- Innovators earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3, 6% on levels 4 and 5, 4% on level 6 and 2% on level 7
- Generators and higher earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3, 6% on levels 4 to 6 and 3% on level 7
The Generation Bonus allows a Uforia Science affiliate to earn on volume generated beyond the first seven levels of their unilevel team.
Uforia Science defines a generation when a Leader or higher is found in a unilevel team leg.
This Leader or higher ranked affiliate caps off the first generation of that leg, after which a second generation begins.
If a second Leader or higher ranked affiliate exists deeper in the leg, the second generation is capped off and third begins.
If no other Leader or higher ranked affiliates are in the leg, the second generation extends down the full depth of the leg.
Using this generational structure, Uforia Science affiliates are able to earn on up to six generations per leg.
- Leaders are paid a 1% Generation Bonus on up to three generations
- Innovators are paid a 2% Generation Bonus on up to four generations
- Generators are paid a 2% Generation Bonus on up to five generations
- Creators and Rainmakers are paid a 2% Generation Bonus on up to six generations
Uforia Science take 1% of company-wide sales volume and pay it to Rainmaker ranked affiliates.
Each Rainmaker ranked affiliate receives an equal share in the set aside volume paid quarterly.
Discounts and Dividends Program
Uforia Science’s Discounts and Dividends program is essentially cashback on downline purchase activity.
The Discounts and Dividends program pays up to $20 cashback on each Ustart DNA kit sold.
Uforia Science affiliates receive “dividends” on each purchase based on the following qualification criteria:
- D&D-0 (generate 0-100 monthly RV) – no dividend bonus
- D&D-1 (generate 101 to 200 monthly RV) – $5 dividend bonus
- D&D-2 (generate 201-300 monthly RV) – $10 dividend bonus
- D&D-3 (generate 301 to 500 monthly RV) – $15 dividend bonus
- D&D-4 (generate 501 or more monthly RV) – $20 dividend bonus
Note that the above amounts are coded, meaning a higher ranked affiliate receives the difference paid to any lower ranked downline affiliates.
E.g. If a D&D-2 ranked affiliate purchases a kit, they receive a $10 dividend bonus.
There is still $10 to pay out so the system searches upline for either a D&D-3 or D&D-4 ranked affiliate.
If a D&D-3 ranked affiliate is found, the system pays them $5 and searches deeper for a D&D-4 affiliate to pay the remaining $5 to ($20 – $10 – $5).
If a D&D-4 ranked affiliate is found, the system pays them the remaining $10 and stops searching.
Note that if a D&D-4 ranked affiliate generates the dividend bonus, there is no leftover amount to pass up (they are paid the full $20 bonus).
For Uforia Science retail customers, they receive a “discount” that can be put toward future purchases.
I believe the discount available is equal to that paid as dividends to affiliates.
To reach the higher RV qualification amounts, a Uforia Science retail customer can refer new retail customers (they aren’t paid anything directly for doing so).
Joining Uforia Science
Uforia Science affiliate membership is $39.95.
To qualify for commissions a Uforia Science affiliate must also purchase at least 100 PV worth of product each month.
I’m a bit confused as to why Uforia Science has launched.
Unless I’m missing something, the core of the company’s business model revolves around selling DNA kits, going over the results and then selling a nutritional supplement formula based on those results.
Without the formula, Uforia Science affiliates and customers are shelling out $159.95 a month for a non-targeted multi-vitamin.
I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with Uforia Science’s Pretrition supplement, just that it seems quite pricey for what it is.
More so when you consider Pretrition appears to cost the same with or without the DNA kit (I’m not clear on whether Uforia Science bundles the DNA kit with monthly repeat orders).
As a retail customer, the DNA kit –> nutritional formula combo might sound intriguing.
Paying $159.95 a month for a generic multi-vitamin? Not so much.
Furthermore, when I explored the sign-up options on the Uforia Sciences website, I found the company selling a Ustart 10-pack kit for $1279.60.
Without the personalized nutritional formula, what is the point of buying ten DNA kits?
This brings us to the key problem within Uforia Science’s current business model.
Although retail is there, obviously its main selling point is the DNA nutrition – which as I’ve stated doesn’t appear to exist yet.
What you’re left with is a $159.95 a month multi-vitamin opportunity.
Evaluation of Uforia Science’s MLM opportunity begins with the requirement that each affiliate have a standing monthly order:
To qualify to earn the monthly commissions in the compensation plan you must have a personal order of 100PV or more within the same calendar month.
This is blatant pay to play and casts a big question mark over the retail viability of Uforia Science’s product.
If there’s a retail market for DNA-based nutrition, why force affiliates to purchase product each month to qualify for commissions?
Given most Uforia Science affiliates will buy a bottle of formula anyway (when it’s available), why not tie commission qualification to retail sales?
That way the company ensures every affiliate is generating at a minimum a retail sale to match their own order.
Instead I get the impression, especially now seeing as the personalized formulas aren’t available, that Uforia Science is full of affiliates paying $159.95 a month for a multi-vitamin.
There’s nothing wrong with that outside of an MLM scenario, but an MLM company with little to no retail sales is operating as a pyramid scheme.
While researching Uforia Science’s MLM opportunity, I was reminded of another DNA test kit company I reviewed earlier this year; Foru International.
I thought it might be a good idea to do a comparison seeing as what both companies were offering was remarkably similar, only to discover Foru International doesn’t exist anymore.
Turns out they were bought out by Terry Lacore and now go by UClue, Inc. (dba Uforia Science).
In a Uforia Science marketing video doing the rounds, LaCore doesn’t reference Foru International by name but does confirm purchase of a company.
[0:30] This is not a normal project where someone will come in and say I wanna sell an energy drink and, I tell the lab to go throw some ingredients together with flavoring and a couple of days later we have a product that’s testable.
This is years and years and years of work that the team has put into it.
So it started out years ago and I bought it.
They put all the medical side of it together, most of it. And what it lacked was the ability to actually market it.
It was a fantastic idea with a ton of research … but the ability to go take it to market was pretty much zero.
LaCore goes on to state he purchased Foru International last year and initially had a goal to relaunch it “a year ago”.
In our Foru International review, published in February 2018, we found an MLM company “on its last legs”.
Analysis of Foru International’s compensation plan was heavily focused on affiliate autoship recruitment, which unfortunately appears to have been retained with Uforia Science.
If LaCore is to be believed, Foru International collapsed due to shoddy marketing and an inability to scale their manufacturing process.
LaCore is backed by his LaCore Enterprises which he presents as a solution to the problem.
For reference, ForU International began marketing DNA nutrition as GeneWize Life Sciences back in 2008.
I might be inclined to believe LaCore if Uforia Science came out of the gate with a strong retail focus (beyond cashback, which puts the onus of driving retail sales on customers instead of affiliates).
As it stands though I’m just not seeing it.
Update 15th January 2020 – Uforia Science’s compensation plan has changed since we published our initial review.
BehindMLM published an updated Uforia Science review on January 15th, 2020.
Ive known Ron for many years. I used to live in Utah and he used to be a good friend. But he is a snake. A crafty and cleaver mormon snake.
Beware of him. My friend and I were at the very top and were the first hand full of ppl in Forevergreen and he screwed us all!!
Everything looks, sounds, smells good. DNA testing with specialized supplements are popping up everywhere.
I see one to two new adds on social media for companies not in the MLM channel trying to launch this exact concept. I know ID LIFE and Trump Network tried this before as well.
I’m glad to see an entry on this MLM. Looks and sounds sketchy as hell, another health and wellness pyramid money pit. very little info on their own website… in fact their comp plan is more detailed than the list of what goes into the supplements.
I’m going to bet all the recipients of these supplements are just getting the same exact thing, just packaged with their name on it.
In the linked Uforia Science marketing video LaCore claims to have built a machine that puts together the personalized formula. They’re using some nineteen I think it was datapoints.
Based on DNA kit results the Uforia Science website says there are over 400 million formula combinations possible.
I’ve known, and spoken to Terry La Core, on many occasions since he and Brian Underwood were in cahoots with so much shit over the years.
I would not piss on La Core if he was rampantly on fire!!
I’ve known Ron for 20 yrs, worked with him for 15 …and will continue to do so.
Having this experience with him, I can truthfully say he’s the real deal. It’s because of him I joined Uforia and I’ve been blown away at the caliber of business practice Terry Lacore and Ron have created together.
I’ve been on the Utrition product and it’s by far one of the best nutritional supplements I’ve tried. It’s custom formulated to my DNA and I have proof! This company is in the next giant…watch out!
I also have known Ron personally for 20 years. I was one of the first distributors in ForeverGreen and first to hit the top rank! With Ron’s dedication and leadership, I and many others earned millions.
I am also involved with Uforia. It is unfortunate many inaccurate facts and information about the people, product and comp plan are written.
Example…‘Pretrition’ is a unique DNA nutritional preparation formula taken 30 days prior to receiving the customize formula…not a ‘generic multi-vitamin’.
Customized formulas have been received by many … myself included. It is a brilliant supplement and I love it!!!
Regardless of how many people are flogging it, it’s still weapons-grade bolonium.
Here’s an easy illustration as to why. My identical twin lives in Alaska, and spends his entire day inside in the dark while eating Big Macs. I live in the Canaries and spend my days cycling in the sun and eating a Mediterranean diet.
Yet Uforia and co will say that we should be eating the same supplements because our DNA is identical. Sure. What an absolute crock of crap.
Unique in the sense everybody receives the same Pretrition formula? Yeah, that’s why we labelled it generic.
You can’t deliver customized nutrition prior to analysis of DNA results.
Can you clarify whether they’re available to retail customers? (and if so why is Uforia Science advertising the formula as “coming soon”?)
Also any indication of retail customer cost for the formula?
Oh and one last thing, tell your friend Sarah not to try and spam our comments section again. Thanks.
I see there’s mixed emotions regarding this company, the CEO and Founder. I personally have never met Ron or Terry so I can’t speak on that.
I think the product will become more non-generic once affiliates and customers get the product, and provide testimonies. The target market seems to be people who already pay $160+ for nutritionals every month.
Then why are they using MLM?
Let me guess. And take the world by storm!
Barfola. I’m getting so sick of these shysters. I don’t know how Oz does it. I hope he’s making a heap of money from this site because the redundancy of idiot MLMers is enough to drive one insane.
Hey Scott. MLM isn’t about the product.
By target market, you mean MLMers? They are the only ones dumb enough to pay $160 for an “opportunity” where 99% lose money whilst buying overpriced products that mask the scheme.
I have my good and bad days, same as anyone else.
Have to admit though it’s the MLM cryptocurrency knuckledraggers that have sorely tested my patience this year. That scam-ridden niche has just gotten worse and worse.
Malthusian raises an excellent point. Going back to the age old “nature vs. nurture” debate, DNA is only one part of the equation and almost certainly not the most significant one.
Go ahead, try to sell retail customers bizarrely expensive nutritional supplements. You know, if you have any significant number of pure retail customers as apposed to affiliates on autoship.
I’ll stick with my YMCA membership, oatmeal for breakfast and $30 some odd bucks a month for a reputable multi vitamin and a fish oil cap daily.
Of course I will never get rich selling my wellness plan, but neither will 90+% of Uforia affiliates. And I, unlike them, can pocket the savings.
It is hard to understand something that has never been done before.
“Customized, Personalized, Nutrition, based upon your own DNA”
You cannot compare this to vitamins your buy off the shelf. It is like comparing apples and ping pong balls. There are nearly 400 million combinations of ingredients produced by a one of kind piece of equipment Equipment.
This is category creator, not a wellness company. The compensation plan is totally customer driven, and the products won’t end up selling on Ebay or Amazon.
Chiropractors, Doctors, Personal Trainers, etc. etc. are excited about providing this unique, personalized product to their clients.
DNA is becoming mainstream for obvious reasons. People are tired of consuming fad nutritional products. I believe the timing for this is perfect. I expect Uforia will have massive growth in 2019.
Your DNA is your DNA, and it never changes. I have taken hands full of vitamins for years as many others do. This is the answer many consumers have been looking for in my opinion.
Time will tell, and for all us our thoughts will be documented here.
Yeah, except Genewize launched in 2008. They’d been “doing it” for at least 7-8 years before LaCore bought them out.
Oh really? Name five then and provide evidence.
If DNA Dale has got anywhere in the pyramid I’m pretty sure he can name five chiropractors and personal trainers in his downline and upline.
People who promote quack medicine = perfect MLM target.
People who aren’t very bright + precarious and low-earning job = perfect MLM target.
Except it’s not, as it includes pay to play. Totally customer driven compensation plans don’t require affiliates to buy product to qualify for commissions.
Pro tip: if you want to get ahead in MLM, don’t tell blatant lies. There’s no need.
Noob MLMer tells obvious lies and looks foolish when he gets caught out. Pro MLMer uses vague nonsense and lies of omission which means he can spend hours arguing with sceptics and never actually get trapped in an outright falsehood, so that to the gullible he appears to have won the argument.
This is probably the real reason for the “DNA customised supplements” rubbish. Less easy to prove that you’re selling the product for many times more than it’s actually worth when the products aren’t there on eBay for all to see at their true market value (like Younique makeup or cheap leggings).
If any affiliates do dump Uforia on eBay, you simply say “ah but it isn’t customised to your own stobblyglobins so you can’t compare the price”.
It’s not much fun being an amoeba?
Thank you for agreeing with my post above which explains why this product is horsecrap.
Sorry Dale , but I’m afraid your DNA does change over your life time. There are constant mutations going on all the time. Its the joy/miracle that drives evolution.
Also if your unfortunate enough to have needed a bone marrow transplant. then your skin cell dna will differ from your blood cell dna, which will match the donor.
Still if you believe this crap , there is obviously no helping you. All the body’s basic needs come from a simple basic and varied diet. In cases where there is a deficiency I suggest a doctor and specif supplements.
All these herbal scheme are the same. I recall many years ago analyzing the ingredients in Herbalife… Basically herbal laxatives, diuretics and caffeine. So you could do as well with a couple of Senna pods and a redbull.
If you feel you need nutrients take a general multivitamin ,the body will use what it needs and excrete the surplus.
It is so hard to find any information about this company on their own website.
I’m suspicious about the fact that they are charging $159 for something that doesn’t even contain the “personalized supplements” yet, just the generic “Pretrition” + DNA kit. There just doesn’t seem to be any unbaised evidence to support the claim that supplements can be coded to your unique DNA strand. Sounds quacky.
The fact that Eric Worre immediately slapped his name on it doesn’t help convince me that this is anything but a shady business.
Looks to me like a way to increase profits on the distributor starter kit and create significant breakage to Terry and Ron.
I learned the numbers and actual process from A-Z on what it takes to even get your custom supplement. Your article does not mention the extra fee for actually getting your DNA sample swab tested.
So after distributor fee, kit fee, DNA test fee and your first order of customized supplements you are approaching $450-500 to get a one month supply of product.
How can this fly on the retail customer side of things? How does the machine have enough time in the day to formulate and produce a truly customized supplement that can grow to scale even at 100,000 people?
I just “love” how people casually speculate on companies and products. Even the person who wrote this article could have easily done a better job of investigating the product.
For the record, they do produce and deliver, a customized product once the DNA sample is done, (this is very easy to discover) and they have developed the equipment and software to be able to do this, and in fact in November, they had a tour of the facility where the product is produced.
This is core nutrition that currently checks 18 SNP’s passed on by your parents. The reintroduction of the product is timely as many people are starting to see the benefit it DNA based nutrition. (I have not found any company the actually customizes their nutrition specifically for the individual. If someone knows of one, please point them out).
Any additional nutritional needs based on life style and current health issues should also be assessed and the recommended supplementation added to your regime, this is just common sense.
If you know anything about nutrition and you vet their ingredients, you will see they have done their research.
So it’s actually live now for retail customers?
If so why does it say coming soon and why isn’t retail pricing disclosed on the Uforia Science website?
Foru International tried for ~8-9 years. They went out of business because there wasn’t enough interest.
Foru International was bought out and now operate as Uforia Science…
If you go to any Ütritionist’s website, for example: (Ozedit: spam removed) and watch the video at the top of the page, everything is explained and the price for the monthly supplement is clearly stated as $159.95 per month plus shipping and handling.
I signed up in November, did my $99 swab test (by law the test must be separate, not yet available in NY) received my 35 page DNA report, and action plan, and I am now on my customized product, as are many other people.
Now that I have had my test done, I now know, for example, that because of my SNP’s what type of COQ10, and dosage is best for me. youtube.com/watch?v=t86ITOlGuc8
When I was asking you to point out another product that is customized according to our DNA I was meaning besides FORU, I meant currently besides their previous attempt. There is nothing wrong with not giving up on a great concept, improving on it and just finding the right timing. And that time is now.
Please don’t post affiliate referral links or recruitment orientated marketing material here.
Is that the customized formula or the generic “pretrition” formula? And you’re obviously an affiliate, is the custom formula available for retail customers yet?
If so why isn’t the retail cost of the custom formula provided on the Uforia Science website?
If you say so. As I understand it all LaCore has done for now is build/buy some machine to process orders.
Don’t think shipping delay was much of a problem for Foru International, so much as there being not much interest in the product itself.
As has been pointed out by other readers, using DNA as a sole indicator for nutritional supplementation isn’t accurate if lifestyle isn’t part of the equation (see comment #8).
I find this amazing…The single most proactive measures you can implement to take control of your health is to eat organic, dont smoke, decrease stress, and limit alcohol..That’s it!
Does not take spending $160 per month ($2,000 per year) on vitamins…Am I missing something here??
It’s almost like going to the allergy doctor..The stick you with 200 different needles with all types of allergens and the ones that swell up, well, you’re allergic to, then, they make up your own special potion and for $300 per month, you start getting allergy shots….
All of us are allergic to something..Im terribly allergic to hay but I don’t need a hay shot, I just stay away from Hay..
Also, Eric Worre..is this dude for real or borderline narcissist..He’s teamed up with these guys for the training..He speaks so great of the network marketing industry and is really a great teacher but he has NO passive income from the industry he praises..
From my understanding, his past networking groups are gone, meaning no more residual income…He’s found a better way to make money with the industry and that is to prey on vulnerable people who know nothing about this industry and are willing to shell out thousands of dollars to learn the secrets, which there aint none….
Also, there are other network marketing trainers who see this huge opportunity to profit off the masses of people that never ever make money in MLM…maybe Im wrong now, and apologize if so….
Back in the early 1990’s, my Amway sponsor was a Double Diamond and I was always treated like one of the boys, But let me tell ya something, behind the scenes was way different than what was preached on stage..I saw greed, manipulation, adultery, alcohoism,etc….
They were masters in the art of selling training via books. tapes and seminars, etc..because 70% of their income came from that..To me, it seems like it’s gotten worse…
If you’re going to review a company you should take the time to review it with care. For example: if you don’t know why someone would by a five pack starter kit you have not done your research.
Another thing I found odd was you questioned who is running this company…. Ron Williams face is everywhere … I almost feel like I know him from researching this product!
I could go on …. I believe this review is not complete or comprehensive.
There is absolutely no reason for a new Uforia Science affiliate to purchase 10 DNA Starter kits. It’s inventory loading and a compliance red flag.
Everywhere except, as noted, the Uforia Science website.
If you’re going to comment on one of our reviews, you should take the time to read it. I could go on but let’s leave it at two for two.
After watching a zoom last night with Ron Williams I could not feel more skeptical about this business.
He sounded like a 1980’s used car salesman rolling out a tired outdated spiel about how “all kids want these days is sugar and we gotta change that”. He claims this service has never been done before in history which is an outright fallacy.
They seem far more interested in getting people on autoships than explaining thoroughly what the product actually is.
All in all this seems like another pay to play recruitment based scheme that promises wildly unrealistic gains by selling gallons of overpriced supplements anyone could buy separately on Amazon for far less.
So I was approached to become an affiliate. First thing I did was Google DNA based diets.
All the articles I read stated there was no correlation to DNA and diet. I’ll stick with what I learned in 8th grade health class.
Go with no processed food and 40/40/20 of carbs, proteins, and good fats. Percentages may need to change based on activity.
Shipping delay was, in fact, an issue at ForU at times. Whether it was due to the high volume of orders or a supply issue with certain ingredients required for certain personalized combinations, or a combination of both, I cannot answer.
I was an affiliate with a few customers and also took the supplement. Sometimes it would show up on time, and other times not so much. Inconsistency for product delivery, and then sometimes certain ingredients were left out, eventually led me to stop ordering the supplement since I was not sure when the product would arrive (I canceled auto ship but ordered when I wanted/needed a refill).
I believe this business model and product needs some consistent auto ship since ingredient acquisition is key to making this product.
Without a baseline number of orders for any month how many of these ingredients would become ineffective or unusable if not placed into the supplement within a certain amount of time?
Autoship is fine, provided the majority of autoships are genuine customers.
If the majority of company-wide revenue is from affiliate orders Uforia Science will be operating as a pyramid scheme.
I believe this company will take off. This is needed in this generation of fast foods and prepared frozen foods.
Think of it this way cut back on some of your junk foods and put that towards the product. If you share enough you get free.
If your a affiliate there is a great commission kick back to make a decent discount or more. Everyone benefits one way or another.
Hmmm..all for 159.00 a month! I go to this guy goes by the name Doctor… He gives me a blood test, one and done… he then calls me in and we discuss the results.. if needed he puts me on a medication ,cool thing is insurance pays for it… the other good thing is im not paying for anything I dont need!
Im sure jus in a matter of time the law suits will start flying, but by that time people will have made their millions.What was the Canadians name selling the shark oil.. or was it snake oil??
they are going to use all synthetic ingredients for the “FORMULA” which the same thing can be bought at WalMart.
These vitamins are gold for the pharma companies. because we buy them and piss them straight out. Not helping any thing.
Yes, they will tell you they are identical to what is found in nature. BUT the body is isn’t dumb it will recognize a synthetic and send it straight to the kidneys to be flushed out.
THIS IS JUST ANOTHER MONEY GRAB!
There are a lot of inaccuracies in the article. I’m not involved in the business but, it is legitimate. Always do your own research.
The world is inherently negative, especially bloggers with nothing better to do.
So many in fact that you failed to point out even one.
Sound logic there. We got a real business baller here folks.
Just look up Lacore and the SEC on Google and that’s all the info I need to see how he does business.
There are almost 100 plant based ingredients and they are measured to the microgram according to a persons DNA results and what SNPs they have inherited from their family tree.
The company is customer focused though it is an MLM. I am a distributor however I focus on customers and health and not “recruiting” . I’m going just fine with it financially and no “push” from the company to build a team.
Our top leader business is 70% customer based. There are testimonials, live and on FB where like are doing some amazing results.
Correct nutrition does not change DNA. Not sure who would think it does?
Nature and supplements do affect actionable genes at the right dosage and the right ingredients helping the body to heal itself from the inside out.
If I wasn’t a happy consumer, I would not be saying any of this. My own story goes beyond the allowed number characters here, ultimately for me, my personalized custom has gotten rid of gut health issues I’ve had for over 35 years.
There are plenty of other pole whose lives are being changed including my children, my mom and 6 of my personal friends.
I can get you access to their stories. How the majority of them were never even approached about a business opportunity , they were approached with a health opportunity.
At the time of this “review”, I was not with the company, I don’t know or claim to know about it’s beginnings. I didn’t know the people in the company in their past lives. I only know it now. I know lives are being changed.. from the DNA level up.
No one is claiming to have invented supplements or nutrigenomics or be the discoverers of dna testing. No one is claiming that this will cure or prevent anything.
We are all happy healthy customers who have chosen to earn an income by helping others become happy healthy customers. Just wait. You’ll all see. It’s only just begun.
Independent peer-reviewed medical evidence please. Miraculous stories = meaningless anecdotal fairy tales.
Also Foru International has its roots dating back to 2008. Bit of a stretch to claim its rebranded product concept is just beginning.
I understand your pessimism believe me. Meaningless maybe to you because you haven’t tried it.
I’m just stating my own experience here, as are you. We don’t need to debate it. I don’t believe in fairytales by the way.
Nope. Meaningless because you can’t provide any evidence to back up your claims.
Making unsubstantiated health claims about MLM products is illegal as per the FTC Act.
The one thing I agree on though is there’s no point in debating anything if you can’t provide evidence of your claims.
Good. Don’t expect other people to.
I never said anything about medical evidence. That’s twice that you have mentioned though. You already tried to misquote me in comment #39.
Clearly stated was that it is my own experience which is not even close to breaking laws nor making claims.
My opinion is not against the law. My sharing my own experience isn’t either. Also clearly stated is that no one is making claims to anything.
“No one is claiming that this will cure or prevent anything” is precisely what I said. You don’t think I took a screenshot of that hahaha?
Never even said to believe in fairytales ♀️
And I quote…
Unless you have peer-reviewed evidence of anything Uforia Science sells curing “gut health issues”, that’s an unsubstantiated medical claim.
Making unsubstantiated health claims about MLM company products is illegal as per the FTC Act.
And let’s not kid around. If you’re coming on here to pitch like that to complete strangers, god knows what you’re telling your family and friends.
YES!!! All the comments about how shoddy UFORIA is 100% TRUE!
The “pretrition” has almost 10,000 micrograms of synthetic cyanide also know as B12 but I was blown away when I seen this on the box and NO Hell NO I did not take any of it.
And I called the woman distributing it and she was like well they said blah blah and its obvious she has been taken by their worthless products.
I do not want my dna checked out by these shysters oh yeah I bet they do not really do that either its just more of thier scam convince people we really looked at their DNA.
I guess I can relax a bit. But The amount of synthetic B12 in the “pretrition” is shocking and the way they have the box colored you can hardly make out what is in the “pretrition”.
This is NOT a accident when taking the toxic form of cyanide they have in the product. Definetly stay away
I would like to hear an explanation about how any machine can create and deliver customization for each bottle.
(Ozedit: derails removed)
All of this information is completely outdated now. The compensation plan was updated quite a few months back.
Anybody can view the full compensation plan the full FAQ and any other resources that the company provides on the resource page. uforiascience.com/resources
One thing our CEO does is listen to his leaders. On the advisement of the leaders, the compensation plan has been enhanced.
We no longer have the D&D program. They have since introduced quikits for those who don’t want to purchase the deluxe kit, they can purchase the quikit for $49.95 plus the $100 lab fee (A 10 day supply of the pretrition capsules instead of a full 30 day supply with the deluxe kit ) that gets them their 35 page report and their lab test results.
Plus now both customers and Affiliates are able to get product discounted and even free when they introduce it to others with the customer referral program.
Thanks for letting me know there’s been a significant comp plan change. I’ll flag this review for an update.
Forced autoship still a thing?
There is no forced auto-ship it is $39 annually to become a Utritionist. If someone want the company to make a specific product for them, based upon their personal dna test, yes autoship is the only way that makes sense.
These products are not pulled off a warehouse shelf! They are personalized and customized for each INDIVIDUAL Customer.
Most of our growing customer base are VITAMIN BELIEVERS and have been for a long time. Many spend $300+ monthly and Whole Foods, and they love having their own custom blend.
The review never stated there was forced autoship, only that Uforia Science’s compensation plan was heavily geared towards it.
The problem is if the majority of autoship subscribers are affiliates, and that’s Uforia Science’s primary source of revenue, then it’s operating as a pyramid scheme.
Also spending $300 a month on vitamins is sad. Get yo’self a balanced diet ffs.
Let me sum it all this up.
It is a MLM… In order for it to be successful the company has to make money and it has to be able to pay its people enough money to keep them excited and motivated to buy and sell.
People will be making money off the efforts of other people just like any job. The cost of the products always need to provide extra money for compensation plan.
If you believe in the theory of the product you wont care that your paying extra. If you dont, dont get involved.. Easy and simple.
What science has told us: DNA can tell us alot about our bodies and our potential for disease ect. If we can “tune” or “manipulate our DNA we could reverse or change our genetics.
It has been proven through food and we have seen DNA manipulation succeed in humans too. So the theory and reality is there.
What this company claims is that they are looking at 18 or so specific data points linked to disease and illness of some sort and connecting those results with 100 plant based ingredients that have peer reviewed studies showing they have a positive affect on those 18 data points…
Looks like i have alot of studies to read to understand the if the claims match up.
There are plenty of people paying alot more then $160 month on supplements. So there is a viable market for the business. just because my grandma would not do it doesn’t mean the business isn’t viable.
Feel free to provide one peer-reviewed study showing Uforia Science supplements specifically altering human test subject’s DNA.
Just one study will do.
Your DNA analysis of your twin in Alaska makes no sense… Üforia tests 18 actionable SNPs through DNA testing… No 2 people share the same DNA – not even identical twins.
As far as cost? It would cost me hundreds monthly to make my formula. Customers love it and are offered generous discounts for their referrals… 25% for each!
I haven’t had to pay for my Utrition in 10 months!!! Then of course your witty claims of selling to quacks like Chiropractors… Really? Wow!
But anyways their is a Practitioner program for Doctors who can adjust the Utrition formula to meet any special needs the physician requests.
I’m sure you can find something else to tear apart… My guess is you’re in a competing field? Wait, you can’t be as nobody is providing designer nutrition.
Human DNA is 99.9% the same between people. For identical twins that percentage is even higher.
Seems kinda silly to pretend people are going to have vastly different nutritional requirements based on a 0.1% DNA difference.
Unless you’re trying to market a solution without a problem.
spot ON oz !!!!!
I am going to prove to you all by scientific facts that this company is fraud and just using the science as a gimmick.
