Immunotec Expert Review by Brian Garvin and Jeff WestBy Brian and Jeff On March 29, 2009 Under MLM-Programs-I
Immunotec is a health based company offering products backed by science and opportunities for distributors to create financial freedom. Founded in 1996, Immunotec has grown tremendously with over 15,000 distributors throughout the United States and Canada. The company has managed to remain debt free since its inception with major banks such as La Caisse de depot placement du Quebec investing several million dollars and earning stakes in Immunotec. Their signature product is Immunocal, a milk based serum which supports immune system functions.
The President and CEO, James A. Northrop is known for his experience in direct sales, fashion, packaged consumer products, retail and cosmetics industries. He has served as CEO, chairman and President for various companies which significantly grew under his leadership. As the head of Immunotec, Mr. Northrop’s company mission is to provide consumers with quality products, “grounded in solid science, which help to enhance their health and well-being.” Besides the actual products, James also believes that allowing customers to become Immunotec distributors aids in improving lives by offering a unique opportunity to own their own business.
Combining science and business experience is what sets Immunotec apart from the competition. Immunotec is a member of the U.S. and Canadian Direct Selling Associations which follows DSA standards that requires companies to make no claims, statements or promises that could potentially mislead the public. All products that promote health have been researched by one of Immunotec’s esteemed founders, Dieter Beer and one of the first men to begin researching whey protein in 1978, Dr. Gustavo Bounous.
The two partnered up to extensively research the products which shape Immunotec today. Immunocal/HMS 90 was discovered by Dr. Bounous who received recognition as a Career Investigator for the Canadian Research Council, was honored with the Medal of Royal College of Physicians and remains a lifetime member of Canada’s Research Council.
Immunotec offers customers a large selection of health-related products. Health and nutrition products include Immunocal Platinum, Immunocal and Omega-3. Products in their well-being line include Xtra Sharp-X5 Fruit, Cherry Concentrate and Magistral. For weight loss and fitness, Immunotec offers PNT 200, Prycena and Prycena Thermal Action among others. The company also has a line of body products as well as books and other literature.
To become an Immunotec distributor, one must contact the company and request information. Distributors are able to sell products on their own time and be compensated for their efforts by the company. Immunotec holds many events to help their distributors succeed. Red Carpet Days give members full access to company headquarters where they can receive personal training. Distributors also receive paid accommodations, a tour of Immunotec headquarters and get to meet with the folks who are running the company.
