Isn't it great to use a nutritional product that is specifically designed for you while making money at the same time?
This is probably how Uforia Science has been introduced to you, and now, you want to know if there is truth behind these claims.
Uforia Science presents itself to be the only company that offers "Utrition," a personalized health supplement created specifically for you based on your DNA profile.
The company also offers a business opportunity advertised to help you capitalize on its "revolutionary DNA nutrition formula" and earn a part-time or even a full-time income.
However, earning a decent income with Uforia Science is almost impossible if you don't truly understand what this business is all about.
Furthermore, there are crucial facts the company products that might discourage you from using and selling them to other people.
In this Uforia Science review, we shall discuss everything you need to know about this company, its products, and its business opportunity.
I know how valuable your time is, so let's get right into it...
Founders: Ron Wiliams and Terry Lacore
Price to Join Opportunity: $39.95/year + $159.95 Ustart DNA Test Kit + $99 DNA analyzation fee + 100PV monthly product orders
Recommended? No, unless the Uforia Science products work for you. The company also didn't clearly discussed if retail profits is possible, making it look like a pyramid scheme in disguise. You may want to check this out instead.
Overall Business Opportunity Rating:
Quick Summary: The idea behind Uforia Science products is promising. However, they could also be no more than another hyped food supplement. Furthermore, the company's compensation plan is geared towards recruitment where retail profits wasn't even properly discussed.
The company has some serious red flags that even if the Uforia Science products did work for you, I still cannot recommend that you join this company for business.
I will discuss why below...
What is Uforia Science?
Uforia is a Multi-level Marketing (MLM) company that sells a “specially created” dietary supplement just for you.
But why Terry's name wasn't openly mentioned on the Uforia Science website is a mystery.
Meanwhile, Eric Worre has also been known to made appearances in Uforia Science events and has provided the company with leadership training, which is a good sign.
Eric Worre is the best selling author of Go Pro, one of my recommended best network marketing training programs.
With this information, it's safe to say that Uforia is led by experienced and competent network marketers that know the ins and outs of the industry.
Unfortunately, despite the lead personalities' impressive background, I'm convinced that making money with Uforia Science won't be a walk in the park.
In fact, you might not even be convinced to use its products and here's why…
Are Uforia's Products FDA Approved, Safe to Use?
Uforia's products are called "Utrition," a personalized dietary supplement based on your DNA profile and "Pretrition," which is a supplement formula designed to prepare your body before you start taking Utrition.
Why your body needs Pretrition before you can start taking Utrition though is something Uforia Science and Ron didn't discuss. But on more important matters…
Despite the hypes and salesy marketing campaigns of the company, Utrition (wordplay of "nutrition made for you"), regardless of it specifically designed for you, is still, by definition a "dietary supplement."
Dietary Supplements don't need to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before they are released into the market, and these products are not intended to diagnose, treat, or prevent any illness.
Therefore, when it comes to safety…
The FDA suggests that you consult a medical practitioner first before taking any of these products first because taking supplements when you have certain health issues could do you more harm than good.
And as a distributor of this company, it is your responsibility to educate your customers about these matter and not start a misconception.
Does Uforia Products Work?
An article published in the CNN Health website claims that while the idea behind using DNA analysis to make personalized dietary supplements holds promise, there is not enough definitive proof to support and verify its positive effects.
The article then continued that one potentially promising application of "nutrigenetics" (the study of how our genes determine our response to nutrients in food and beverages) is through medical foods…
Which, unlike dietary supplements such as Utrition and Pretrition, needs to be strictly overseen by the FDA and must be prescribed by a health-care practitioner. (Source)
So regardless of what good and miraculous things people say about Utrition and Pretrition, the fact remains that these products have not been proven and tested scientifically to work.
Another thing I must point out is that our bodies won't stay the same.
A one-time DNA test results to determine the "personalized nutritional supplement" that you are going to take for years regardless of our current health condition or daily routine doest make sense to me.
It's fair to say that a few weeks or months from now, my daily nutrient needs might not be the same as today, so the idea of taking Utrition becomes moot.
In the business side of things, you must be also prepared to accept the fact that like all dietary supplements, Uforia Science's products won't work for everyone and there will be people who won't benefit from Utrition and Pretrition.
Now, I want to make clear that these are all based on my opinion and on what I know. If you have anything to contribute on this matter, feel free to utilize the comment sections below.
But let's refrain from unnecessary hostility, and let's stay respectful to each other's opinions.
How to Get Your Own Utrition Formula?
The company sells what's called a Ustart DNA Test Kit that costs $159.95 during the time of this Uforia Science review.
The kit comes with 2 DNA swabs to collect saliva from the side of your mouth, a prepaid return envelope to mail your sample, and a 30-day supply of Pretrition veggie capsules.
You need to pay another $99 for Uforia to analyzed the samples you sent in their CLIA-certified lab.
The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) regulate laboratory testing and require clinical laboratories to be certified by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) before they can accept human samples for diagnostic testing.
Uforia's partnered lab (undisclosed) then processes your DNA, and your genetic data will be used to create your personalized nutritional product, aka Utrition, that contains nearly 100 "peer-reviewed" plant-based ingredients.
Your personal Utrition will be formulated by the "Utritionator" using the company's "proprietary software" which is said to be a result of a "24-year in development."
But how this proprietary software comes up with the perfect Utrition for you and how it decides the ingredients and their corresponding amounts that best fit your dietary needs is another mystery.
Also, the company didn't provide information on the price of your Utrition as I'm guessing its a separate monthly cost.
So, after knowing these things, what do you think of Uforia Science's products?
Uforia Science Compensation Plan - No retailing commissions?
The company gives the impression that there are plenty of ways for you to make money.
Although, upon closer examination, it appears that retail profits aren't clearly defined by Uforia Science, at least not that I know of, and the compensation plan is more about recruiting people into joining your team.
But don't take my word for it and let me show you…
Referral Program Bonus
The only thing close to retail sales in Uforia Science is the referral program.
Uforia Science offers a program where you will get a product discount if you sell the Ustart DNA Test Kit to other people.
Each sale entitles you to a 25% discount on your monthly Utrition orders. Therefore, if you can sell 4 Ustart DNA Test Kits, you will basically get your Utrition for free.
But what confuses me though, is that the amount used by the company to illustrate this bonus is the same amount of the Ustart DNA Test Kit.
So whether the monthly price of your Utrition is the same as that of the Ustart DNA Test Kit ($159.95) or not is something you'll have to ask the person that introduced you to Uforia Science.
And to be honest, there's plenty of information not provided by the company regarding its business opportunity.
The referral program only tells you that you can get discounts on your monthly Utrition supply.
But what about actual retail profits? Don't you get any profits every time you sell a product to other people?
Because if that's the case, then Uforia Sciences is operating dangerously like a pyramid scheme where you can only make money by recruiting people.
Fast Start Bonuses
Uforia Science distributors, or Utritionist as the company calls them, have 10 different ranks. These are:
- Beginner - New Uforia Science Utritionist
- Builder - Generate 100PV and GV within a month
- Producer - 100PV and 1000GV a month
- Mover - 100PV and 3000GV a month
- Shaker - 100PV and 7500GV a month
- Influencer - 100PV and 15,000GV a month
- Innovator - 100PV and 40,000GV a month
- Generator - 100PV and 100,000GV a month
- Creator - 100PV and 175,000GV a month
- Disruptor - 100PV and 250,000GV a month
- Rainmaker - 100PV and 350,000GV a month
- Free - 100PV and 500,000GV a month
Depending on your current rank, you will earn between 1-20% of the total PV of all the Utritionist on your team within their first 30 days.
And looking at the rankings above, its safe to say that you'll have no other way to "rank-up" other than to recruit a lot of people into your team.
PV stands for "Personal Volume" and is the points generated by product sales to your retail customers, other affiliates, and your own orders.
GV or "Group Volume" is the total PV accumulated by your team.
Uforia pays this bonus via a UniLevel pay structure.
In UniLevel, all of your Personally Enrolled Members (PEM) or the people you personally recruit to become Uforia Science Utritionists will be placed in your Level 1.
When Level 1 Utritionists recruit new members, the new members will be placed on your Level 2. The recruits of your Level 2 Utritionists will be placed on your Level 3 and so on.
Builder ranked Utritionists can earn 5-20% from the PV of their team down to the third level while Free can earn between 5-20% down to seven levels deep.
You can also earn a cash bonus of $500 up to $1,500 if you can generate at least 2,500QV within your first 30 days. QV or "Qualifying Volume" is the point assigned to each product for ranking purposes.
When you get to the rank of Influencer, you will earn 10% of the PV of all your PEMs. Influencers need to generate 100PV and 15,000GV within a month.
Uforia Science wasn't clear how much PV is tied on its products, so if you are planning to join this company, you better clarify this to your sponsor asap.
You wouldn't want to join Uforia Sciences without a clear idea of how much you need to spend on products each month to stay commission qualified.
For all we know, 100PV will cost you a couple of hundreds of dollars. And that is each month!
UniLevel and Generational Bonus
This bonus is similar to the Fast Start Bonuses except that this is a monthly residual commission you'll earn from the Utritionist under your team.
Builders to Free ranked Utritionist can earn between 1-15% based on the CV or Commissionable Volume of all the product sales down to 7 levels.
Influencers can earn additional generation bonuses of 1-2% from the CV of other Influencers, or higher ranked Utritionist beyond their first 7 levels.
Needless to say, you can only expect to earn this residual commissions if you have hundreds or thousands of people under your team.
And if it's still isn't obvious, recruiting and building a sales team is what the Uforia Science business opportunity is all about.
Therefore finding the right people who are potential leader materials and developing their talents is key to your financial success with this business.
As you move up the ranks within Uforia Science's compensation plan, you will be entitled to earn additional perks such as car bonuses, travel incentives, and other cash rewards.
These other bonuses are reserved for Innovator ranked Utritionist and above.
So unless you've indeed become an indispensable member of the company, probably with thousands of people on your team, you cannot expect to earn these lucrative bonuses.
Again, I would like to emphasize that you need to have thousands or at least a couple of hundreds of people in your team to earn a decent income in this company since retail profits are basically non-existent at the time of this Uforia Science review.
To verify any information I just shared with you regarding the Uforia Science compensation plan, here's one of the recent videos from the company.
Is Uforia Science a Pyramid Scheme?
While the company has a very promising product line, one that is truly unique even in the health and wellness industry, I cannot help but question the legality of the Uforia Science business model.
For starters, based on the things I've shared with you above, it appears that the company's compensation plan is all about recruiting people, aka "building a sales team."
There is no clear indication that you can make money by selling the company products, and at best, all you can get for any retail activities is a discount on your monthly product order.
Now, I don't want to say with certainty, and I am not calling Uforia Science a pyramid scheme and a scam.
However, the Federal Trade Commission made it clear that for an MLM company to be considered legitimate, retail profits must be present, and members must be able to make money without recruiting.
I could be wrong but it seems that during this time, retail profits isn't possible when you join Uforia Science.
Worse, it even looks like as an Utritionist, you're paying the company a monthly fee so you can sell its products and recruit other people to do the same.
I don't know about you but that doesn't look good nor fair to me.
But this is my own opinion, and if you'd like to share your own, you can politely leave a comment below, and we can have a healthy discussion.
Cost to Join Uforia Science
You can become an Utritionist by paying a yearly affiliate fee of $39.95.
This fee gives you access to a personal replicated Uforia Science website, the ability to participate in the company compensation plan, and the customer referral program.
Moreover, you will also need to purchase the Ustart DNA Test Kit that costs $159.95 and pay another $99 to have your sample analyzed and get a specially created dietary supplement for you.
And don't forget the monthly 100PV requirement to stay qualified to earn commissions.
All in all, you're to shell out around $300 to officially start this business and a hidden monthly fee of whatever the 100PV of product amounts to.
Verdict - Should You Join Uforia Science?
The only reason why you should consider joining this company is if you've tried Utrition and Pretrition and the said products have done wonders in your life.
You are basically trying to become a sales rep of this company, and you cannot expect to promote Uforia Science products if they didn't work for you.
That being said, I cannot recommend joining this company for business purposes as, at the moment, it operates dangerously like a pyramid scheme.
Once again, I'm not saying that Uforia Science is an outright scam and a pyramid scheme.
But the lack of clarity on whether distributors can make money by selling the products is a major red flag.
Nevertheless, I am in no place to tell you how you should make money, and the final decision is in your hands. But I do believe that you'll do the right thing and what's best for you.
And just in case you've realized that Uforia Science is not the income opportunity you've been looking for, but you're still trying to find a way to generate an additional income source…
Then I highly recommend that you check out this program.
It is the same program that turned me from a nobody to somebody online, without selling any product nor recruiting a single person.
