Zurvita is a multilevel marketing company that sells nutritional supplements in six countries around the world. Here’s our Zurvita review.
What is Zurvita?
Zurvita is a multilevel marketing company that sells nutritional supplements around the world. The company’s key products include the Zeal product lineup, including Zeal Wellness and Zeal Weight Management.
The company was launched in 2008 by two veterans of the direct marketing industry, a couple named Mark and Tracy Jarvis.
Zurvita is notable for being a Christian-focused company. The two founders are very upfront about their Christian beliefs. On the company’s Zurvita.com, official “about us” page, Zurvita says things like:
“…they [the founders] realized they had been called to a larger mission in life. After prayer, they identified these three core principles on which Zurvita was founded: Create a company that glorifies God by accepting and loving people wherever they are, Create strong but humble leadership, [and] Create an environment where people can win at every level.”
Zurvita claims to have grown from earning $3 million in revenue in 2011 to $70 million in 2014.
The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas. Representatives are based around in the world and sell products in Canada, Australia, Germany, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom.
Zurvita has a small product lineup. Here are all the products currently sold by the company:
Zeal Wellness Blend
The Zeal Wellness Blend is a protein and multivitamin powder that claims to boost your energy while nourishing your body. Zurvita claims that you would have to “take over 50 different pills and tablets just to consume the wide range of nutrients found in just one six ounce bottle of Zeal Wellness Blend.”
Zurvita doesn’t publish information about its Zeal Wellness formula online. Instead, they claim that the formula and pricing varies widely from country to country – so you’ll need to talk to your local Zurvita representative for more information.
In addition to a healthy range of vitamins and nutrients, Zeal Wellness includes high levels of stimulants like caffeine to keep you energized throughout the day.
Zeal Weight Management
Zeal’s Weight Management product lineup includes four products. You start your weight loss by using the Zeal Wellness multivitamin formula we mentioned above. Then, you take the Zeal Advanced Formula Protein Shakes as a meal replacement. You supplement these two products with Zeal Cleanse (an “herbal and probiotic cleanse”) along with Zeal Burn, which is a thermogenic fat burner.
While Zeal Wellness is available around the world, Zurvita’s Zeal Weight Management products are only available in the United States and Canada.
Zurvita Product Reviews
It’s difficult to judge the safety, effectiveness, or value of Zurvita’s products because their formula and pricing is constantly changing. Since Zurvita is still a relatively small company, online reviews are also few and far between.
Some of the most accurate Zurvita reviews come from Amazon.com. Zurvita products used to be sold on Amazon but have since been removed from the online retailer’s store.
Just like with most multilevel marketing products sold on Amazon, the majority of reviews are either 5 stars or 1 star. The 5 star reviews are suspiciously positive and come from many first-time reviewers (people who have never reviewed other Amazon products) while the one star reviews come from many verified purchasers.
One 5 star review claims that he used to feel drained throughout the day. After taking the Zeal Wellness Formula as a meal replacement, he felt more energized than ever before. That reviewer also called himself “a big dude” and claimed that the Wellness formula could keep him full for 2.5 hours.
Another positive reviewer said that he used to take energy drinks every day before switching to Zeal Wellness to boost energy throughout the day.
On the other hand, Zurvita’s negative reviews are frighteningly negative. Here’s what one 1 star review had to say:
“AT 53, I'm healthy and take no RX for blood pressure issues. Took first 6oz serving of Zeal. Began to feel very strange, but attributed it to allergy season in Texas and inner ear pressure. Took second 6oz serving the next morning. By 11AM, I thought I was going to pass out. Strange tingling in hands and arms, radiating throughout my body. Had a co-worker drive me to the doctor, very frightening! My blood pressure measured 162/94! I told my doctor I'd taken Zeal that morning about 6AM. We looked up the ingredients on my iPhone and she identified several highly potent stimulants that she felt could be the cause.”
Other Zurvita reviews echoed the idea that there are an uncomfortable number of stimulants in the Wellness formula. One said that it gave them jitters similar to Red Bull, and that they felt there was too much caffeine in the formula.
Finally, one reviewer had a word of warning for anyone who signs up for the Preferred Customer program (which gives you a 15% discount on future product sales):
“The product seems to be good, but once you are on the preferred customer shipping (at a discount) from Zurvita, it is very difficult to get it cancelled.”
The Zurvita Opportunity
Like all good multilevel marketing companies, Zurvita is constantly looking for new recruits. At the company’s “Opportunity” page, you can sign up to become a distributor. Or, if you’d rather just purchase Zurvita products, then you can just sign up as a standard retail customer.
When you sign up as a “Preferred Customer”, you get all of the following advantages:
— 15% Discount On All Retail Sales
— Monthly Deliveries
— Setup An Online Shopping Website (Z-Center)
— Cancel Your Subscription At Any Time
When you read reviews from real Zurvita distributors online (including distributors who have left the company), you’ll learn some of the things going on behind the scenes of Zurvita.
For example, new consultants earn a 20% commission on every product they sell to consumers. They also earn that same 20% commission on all products sold to consultants that they’ve personally enrolled and sponsored.
Other key features of the Zurvita compensation plan include a 9-level promotional table, incentive pays, and complex commission overrides.
You can also control how you structure your downline team. If you structure it right, for example, then you can be paid an additional 5% on the first 8 levels of the downline as you promote up through the Zurvita leadership structure.
Ultimately, there are four ways to earn money through Zurvita, including:
— Retail sales (20% commission through direct sales of physical inventory and direct ship orders through your online store)
— Builder bonuses (any time a team member that you personally enroll orders a Builder Pack, you’ll earn a $100 bonus, as well as a $40 bonus for every Quick Start Pack sold)
— Team Bonuses (including an All Star Bonus and an Infinite Team Bonus)
— Overrides (arguably the biggest earning opportunity in Zurvita, the override system can be viewed below):
