B3 Sciences has a unique exercise program supposed to help you achieve your desired physique, using only half the time and effort but with “guaranteed” better results!
The company (and its affiliates) also tout about a “revolutionary” business opportunity that will allow you to earn a full-time income and even more.
These are probably two of the reasons that enticed you to learn more about this company and to “Get On The Bands.”
But as amazing as these sounds, does B3 Sciences live to its promises?
In this review, we’ll be discussing how the company product works, are they really effective, and if B3 Sciences is indeed the answer to your financial goals.
Let’s get started immediately.
Founder: Dr. Mike DeBord, MD
Price to Join Opportunity: $39.99 – $$579.99 + $4.99/month after your 1st year
Overall Business Opportunity Rating:
Quick Summary: The B3 Sciences products are designed for people who wants to become physically fit but doesn’t want to spend long hours in the gym. If you want to promote these products, you have to look the part or else people won’t buy from you. You have to be physically fit first, or at least show proof that the products somehow worked for you.
The next thing to consider is whether or not this business is suitable for you. Financial success in network marketing is a tall order and majority of the people who joins this kind of business fails. Therefore, you must fully understand what it takes to become successful with B3 Sciences and I will discuss more about this matter below.
Nevertheless, whether you are planning to pursue a network marketing career with B3 Sciences or choose to look for an alternative, here are some training materials for either direction you choose…
FOR B3 SCIENCES CONSULTANTS
IF B3 SCIENCES IS NOT FOR YOU
What is B3 Sciences all about?
With a slogan of “Be Healthy, Be Fit, Be Strong,” you might already have an idea of what you’re getting in to.
B3 Sciences is a Multi-level Marketing (MLM) company in the health and wellness niche founded by Dr. Mike DeBord.
Dr. Mike was a practicing physician for 12 years until he joins his first MLM company (company name undisclosed) in 1996 and said to become a millionaire.
He was then involved with at least two more MLM companies – Chief Operating Officer of NuVerus and the Marketing Director of EnviroMax Plus.
Dr. Mike didn’t disclose any info on why he decided to leave his previous MLM companies.
But according to his B3 Sciences bio, he claimed that he started this after he regained his otherwise lost body physique with the help of his friend, Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen.
Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen introduced him to Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) and B Strong.
As the name suggests, Blood Flow Restriction is a training method that involves a partial restriction of blood flow to certain parts of the body. I will dive more into this concept in a moment.
B Strong, on the other hand, is another company that specializes in designing equipment for BFR training, and they provide B3 Sciences with its flagship product, the B3 Bands.
Other than the B3 Band, the company also sells health and wellness products that compliment their BFR training program and it offers an opportunity for you to make money by selling and recruitment.
B3 Bands – How do they work?
Wouldn’t it be a waste of our time and resources to use and promote a product that we don’t truly understand?
In the case of the B3 Bands, this product is designed based on the science behind BFRT or Blood Flow Restriction Training.
Blood Flow Restriction dates back in 1966 with Dr. Yoshiaki Sato in Japan, where it was known as “kaatsu training.”
KAATSU literally translates to “added pressure.”
Studies reveal that performing training and exercises while restricting blood flow to the limbs by external compression using a pneumatic cuff or tourniquet, such as the B3 Bands, causes the muscles to fatigue faster.
When muscles fatigue, the brain gives a signal to the Pituitary Gland to release Human Growth Hormone (HGH).
The secretion of HGH is a dream for any adult because it supports anti-aging, improves your cardiovascular system, boosts metabolism (lose weight), aids in healthy bones, and many other health benefits.
Basically, the B3 Bands is a product designed so your body will release HGH faster when you are working out.
So instead of the usual long grueling gym sessions, exercising with B3 Bands helps you yield the same results in 20 mins or less.
You can put these bands on your arms and legs, and you can use a blood pressure pump to inflate the band to the recommended pressure.
To be honest, I only know one other MLM company that sells a product that involves HGH, which means less competition and is favorable for the B3 consultants.
The B3 Bands, according to the company, is safe to use by people between 9 to 90-year-olds.
Are the B3 Bands safe?
In the video below, Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen shows proof that it is virtually impossible for B3 Bands to completely stop blood circulation, which is unsafe and might do severe damage your the tissues.
Nevertheless, some studies reveal that blood flow restriction training and exercises can have negative impacts on your body.
The most common side-effect among BFR practitioners was hemorrhage, muscle numbness, cerebral anemia, feeling cold, a venous thrombus (blood clots on the vein), pain and itching among others.
Even Dr. Yoshiaki Sato acknowledged that at the start, he found it difﬁcult to apply the appropriate pressure to the limbs, to a point where his skin would turn pale. He was later diagnosed with pulmonary embolism.
However, there is not enough evidence to support that BFR caused his latter condition.
In general, BFR is found safe by medical professionals when performed appropriately and with the guidance of a trained practitioner.
B3 Sciences Products
B3 Sciences have three categories of products, which are represented by the company slogan, B Healthy, B Fit, and B Strong.
B Strong only has one product, and that is the B3 bands I discussed above.
There are 5 different sizes of bands; from 1 (smallest) to 5 (largest), and you can order depending on your size.
B3 Bands Set ($429.99) – Comes with 2 arm bands and 2 leg bands of your chosen size, a pump, and a case.
When you order your set, make sure to check the sizes that fits you perfectly for optimal usage.
B3 Pro Pack ($999.99) – Comes with all 5 sizes of B3 Bands for a total of 10 bands in sizes 1-5, plus 2 Pumps and a case.
B Fit is merely a meal plan and daily workout programs to promote the use of B Healthy products and B3 Bands.
These programs are supposed to help you achieve your desired health results such as lose weight, get in shape, tone your body, build your muscles, etc.
This category contains 4 powdered ready to mix (RTM) smoothies and shakes.
- B3 Alert – A black cherry flavored energy formula designed with 15 all-natural ingredients to help you focus, maintain energy levels, and enhances brainpower. It costs $49.99 for a 14-day supply pack.
- B3 Meal – Cost 59.99 for a 14-day supply, this is a mocha-flavored meal shake.
- B3 Satisfy – A weight management smoothie that focuses on Energy, Hunger, Blood Sugar, and Fat Metabolism; the four components of weight loss. Satisfy costs $49.99 for a 14-day supply pack and comes in a Blueberry Pomegranate flavor.
- B3 Start – Tropical Punch flavored formula collagen supplement that contains VERISOL and FORTIGEL by GELITA (International company specializing in collagen proteins). B3 Start costs $59.99 for a 14-day supply pack.
Now, I don’t doubt that these products are of good quality, but they are costly. To get a month’s supply of any B Healthy products, you’ll need to spend at least $100.
Also, take note that you have to use them in combination to “achieve” your desired result.
For example, if you want to lose weight, you’ll have to use all of the 4 products above, so that’s around $440 for the entire month.
Plus, you also need to purchase a set of B3 Bands for at least $430, bringing the total cost to at least $870 just for your first month!
I don’t know about you, but that’s rather too much.
I’m not a medical practitioner, but I’m pretty sure whatever your “result” with B3 Sciences is, you can also achieve in a much cheaper way by eating healthy and doing regular exercise.
It’s all about discipline. But of course, you’re free to give the B3 Bands and the B3 Healthy products a try.
After all, the B3 bands are supposed to “accelerate” your progress, and it has good science behind it.
However, B3 Sciences’ ready-to-mix shakes and smoothies have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, and there is no guarantee that these products will work as advertised.
Note – B3 Sciences also sells a shaker cup ($12), exercise tubing ($35.99), exercise guide ($12), and a backpack ($35).
Cost to Join B3 Sciences (It’s waaay more than $39.99)
Someone might have told you that you can become a B3 Sciences Consultant just by purchasing a Success Kit that costs $39.99 for your first year and a monthly fee thereafter of $4.99.
The Success Kit will give you access to a replicated retail website, affiliate back-office, tracking system, and monthly training and seminars.
You will earn 10% based on the BV of the B3 Sciences purchased by customers from your website.
BV stands for Bonus Volume, which is the points assigned on each B3 Sciences product.
For example, the B3 Band Set has a 400BV. If someone buys one from your website, you will earn 10% of 400BV, which is $40.
However, what that person might’ve “forgotten” to tell you is that with this membership, you will not be able to participate in the company compensation plan.
To be able to earn a full-time income in MLM, which comes from passive and residual commissions, you will need access to the Get On The Band System by purchasing the “optional” First Order Package that costs $579.99.
This package includes everything in the Succes Kit plus,
- 1 B3 Bands Set
- Exercise Tubing
- B3 backpack
- Shaker cup
- One 30-day B Fit program
- 30-day access to a personal coach
- 30 days worth of 1 B Healthy product
Of all the other business opportunities I’ve reviewed, B3 Sciences has one of the most expensive startup cost.
Compensation Plan – Get On The Bands System
When I was writing this B3 Sciences review, the company had just undergone some changes to their compensation plan.
The company will now pay you money in 10 different ways with its “enhanced” Get On The band System.
Fancy name aside, your source of income from this company still boils down to two options only, selling and recruiting.
1. Retail Customer Web Sales Bonus
You can earn up to 20% based on BV of the B3 Sciences products purchased by customers from your website.
Using the same example above, if someone purchase a B3 Bands Set with 400BV, you will earn 20% based on the BV which directly translates to $80.
To qualify for commissions, you must be an “Active” consultant by placing an order of at least 50PV each month.
PV or “Personal Volume” are products you personally ordered.
You can do this by subscribing to a monthly autoship program or purchasing products individually as long as you accumulate 50PV by the end of the month.
2. Retail Customer Web Sales Achiever Bonus
If you sell $1000 worth of products on your website within the calendar month, you earn an additional 5% from your original 20% commissions.
And if you make sales of at least $2000 within the same month, your commission will become 27.5% on all the products BV.
3. Retail Customer Direct Sale Profit
B3 Consultants get discounts on company products. Selling them at the retail prices gives you retail profits.
Unfortunately, the company didn’t reveal how much discount consultants will get.
If you have any information about this matter, you can help out the other readers by leaving a comment below.
4. Professional Customer Sales Bonus
If you know some medical professionals who are willing to become your stockist and promote B3 Sciences products on their businesses, you will earn 20% based on the total BV of their monthly orders.
I have no idea why the company made this into a separate income stream when this is basically the “offline” version of #2, where you sell products to other people but this time, on person to person basis and not through the online retail website.
5. International Customer Sales Bonus
You are supposed to earn 20% of the BV of your international customers. This doesn’t make any sense. Isn’t this, again, the same as #2?
I mean, what’s the point of selling online if you are only promoting locally?
Selling online automatically means selling internationally, and why B3 Sciences made this into another income stream is something I can’t put my finger on.
6. New Consultant First Order 8 Generation Bonuses
When someone on your team purchases the First Order Package, you can earn 15% on your direct recruits, 5% on the recruit of your recruits, and 3% from the 3rd to the 5th generation, and 2% from rest of your team down to the 8th level.
In this income stream, the money you make is directly proportional to the number of people you convince into joining B3 Sciences with the First Order Package ($579.99).
7. Network Commissions
B3 Sciences uses a 3×8 Expansion Matrix structure to pay for this commission. In a 3×8 Matrix, you begin at the top with 3 positions directly under you.
Each position below will also have 3 positions under them and so on until the 8th level.
Depending on your current rank, you can earn between 3-5% from all the accumulated BV of your entire organization down to the 8th level.
There are 12 consultant ranks in the Get On The Band System.
To achieve higher ranks, you will need to place a monthly personal product reorders, hit a specific group sales volume, and maintain several active consultants under your team.
For example to become Rank B1, you’ll have to maintain 50PV worth of product reorders, 1 active consultant under you and 50 accumulated group sales volume.
The higher the rank, the higher the requirements.
8. Network Expansion
With an expansion matrix, your organization can expand in width once you reach certain ranks.
The B3 Sciences 3×8 Expansion Matrix can expand up to 6 positions in width (6×8) and you will earn additional income.
9. Leader Bonus Pool
B3 Sciences takes 2% of the entire company’s generated sales volume into a Leader Bonus Pool.
Consultants with rank B5 and above can earn a share on this pool.
Leadership Bonus is awarded yearly.
10. Founder’s Club Pool
Every qualified B3 Consultant who enrolled during the special Founding Consultant period (Up to October 1, 2019) can earn a share in another 2% of the total company sales pool. This is in addition to the 2% Leader Pool.
Promotion Bonus (Free Product)
If you recruit three new consultants within your first 30 days, you will get a free set of B3 Bands at $430 in value.
It doesn’t require someone to get an MBA to realize that you will have to build a large network of consultants under you if you want to make a lot of money with B3 Sciences.
Is B3 Sciences a Pyramid Scheme?
While this company is still new, I am confident that B3 Sciences is not a pyramid scheme.
It sells real products that allow consultants to earn money by retailing, and the company is transparent about the personalities behind its operation.
However, there is no denying that the company gives better incentives to individuals who can build a vast network of consultants rather than someone who sells a lot of products.
If you take another look at the B3 Sciences compensation plan, you have no way of earning a full-time income on this company just by selling the products on your own.
And as much as I don’t want to come across as a pessimist, there is really nothing “revolutionary” about the B3 Sciences’ business opportunity.
Nevertheless, it is not a pyramid scheme since commissions are based on product movements, and you will only get paid once a product or product package is sold.
But this is my opinion and if you have anything to contribute on this matter, feel free to utilize the comments section below.
Are B3 Consultants making money?
At the moment of this B3 Sciences review, the company claimed that they cannot provide an income disclosure yet “until a multi-year track record for Consultant earnings are established.”
As of now, there isn’t a way to tell how many of the company consultants are actually earning a full-time income, or if there are some who are making more.
But to keep things into perspective, the FTC has conducted a study on MLM businesses.
And in the entire industry, they found out that over 99% of the people who join this kind of business don’t earn a decent amount of money in the end.
Should You “Get On The Bands?”
To answer the question above, let me ask you another question. (lol)
What urged you to join B3 Sciences?
For me, the people who should join this company are those whose lives are actually transformed by the B3 Bands and the other B3 products.
Furthermore, B3 Sciences’ products are designed for outgoing and physically active individuals similar to athletes. The company founder himself is a doctor who is doing workouts.
To be able to promote the products more effectively, you have to look the part and be physically fit first, or else people won’t purchase your products just by looking at you.
And granted that you are a physically fit person and you’ve had a pleasant experience with the products, you must also be comfortable in the sales environment.
Selling and recruitment are what you will be doing to make money with B3 Sciences, and to make a decent income, you will have to possess the skills of an excellent network marketer.
You must be comfortable talking to other people, taking an interest in their lives, working together with them and motivating them to reach a common goal.
All financially successful network marketers were able to build and manage a large network of people under them, and you will have to do the same.
Finally, you will need to learn how to find a constant supply of leads.
Because while you can turn to your family, friends, and co-workers at the start, sooner or later you will run out of prospects.
You have to get out of your social circle and learn how to get a steady flow of prospects using the Internet like what successful network marketers do, especially since you will be promoting products online.
And if that interests you, then you might want to check out this strategy.
B3 Sciences sells good products and offers a legit opportunity for you to make money.
However, this business is not for everybody, and you must think carefully if the things above (selling and recruitment) is what you want to do to make money. If not, then don’t lose hope.
Did you know that you can…
Earn a full-time income online from home without selling and recruitment!
If selling BFR bands and health supplements while recruiting other people is not something you want to do…
Then may I suggest that you make money online doing something you are passionate about?
If that proposal interests you, then you might want to check out this program.
The same program taught me to earn a full-time income from home after I quit my full-time job. The same thing can happen to you too!
Thank you for taking the time to read this B3 Sciences review.
I do hope that you found the answers that you were looking for and whether or not B3 Sciences is the MLM company for you.
