See What people are saying about THRIVE:

Jim Loreto
I have taken a lot of products over my lifetime and 9 times out of 10 all the hype around those products were just that hype. When I took Thrive M (for men) first thing in the morning I felt an incredible sensation of feeling lighter and happier and than I added the Thrive Shake. The combination of both of those two products gave me an experience like I haven’t had before. I felt a tingling in my head and my mental clarity and focus were through the roof it was a euphoric experience! I can’t wait to get my hands on more so I have this feeling everyday. 

Tamara Paul Thrive allowed me to complete a 17 item check list in 1 day and I did 3 loads of clothes. Love it!!!! Thrive also made me extremely focused and I wasn’t Hungary until late afternoon . I’m looking forward to being part of this exciting launch.

Chad Adkins I am a Sales Engineer who travels weekly to destinations in the US. I am up early and to bed late. I also own a DJ Company in Louisville, which at times creates late nights entertaining people…. Since my busy schedule requires one to be alert and ready at an instant second…. THRIVE has completely impacted my energy, my drive, my mental focus…. Every morning my body is ready for the next days long hours… THRIVE has me feeling like I was 18 years old again. This product is amazing.     

Toni Strathman Being a Nurse, I can tell you I sure need my THRIVE, I felt so good (mood) Focused, was able to get so much done…not jittery at all. I wasn’t hungry craving all those things I normally Crave.. I wasn’t tired late in afternoon either, I also slept so good!! I even lost 3# in 4 days on my VIP pack.. Love this product! Hurry and launch!

7f35165026754ea3fd4326424e40d599Daryl M Clarke I haven’t been this Excited about a Company in years, and the Most Amazing part is that, The LV Life is in Pre-Launch. You know I can’t sleep at night! The THRIVE Life Style Products are Simply AMAZING!!! This Company ROCKS, MY Upline ROCKS and My TEAM is ROCKING & EXPLOSIVE!!!! I’m telling EVERYONE I know that, “FREE is EASY!!!” ~ We Haven’t Seen Nothing Yet, Get READY World, HERE WE COME!

Aaron Ronnie Cristan My wife and myself both tried the VIP pack this past weekend and had exceptional results, went all weekend with more energy and not feeling like I needed to eat all day.

Lisa Webb Gore My friend Toni was kind enough to share a sample with me and I can’t believe that just one day’s worth could make such a difference. My knee pain was relieved, I had energy to get a lot accomplished, and a decreased appetite. The next day with no Thrive, I was back to feeling sluggish and wanting some more of it! Please send me a VIP pack so I can take some more! 

Brant Padmore I received my THRIVE pack on a Monday i put it in the refrigerator took it out the next morning and took the capsule. Immediately my brain fog went away, my vision improved i then made the THRIVE shake after drinking it 30 minutes later a euphoric feeling over took me i never felt like this in my life i felt like a million bucks my appetite went away and a chronic pain on my right side went away also. After this experience i told everyone i know i can’t live without that product please send me more THRIVE for free i haven’t had a day like that since i really need it PLEASEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! 

Julie Whitmore Meuth THRIVE is Amazing!!!! We had a few days supply and WOW! We felt energized, focused, and lost weight with no jittery feeling! This is the product that everyone will love…. We are thrilled to be a part of this new incredible venture!  

Eric Kabel Before taking thrive I felt lethargic and depressed. The other day Thrive enabled me to work for 9 hours in and out of the Arizona heat with no problems. I was out of shape and after doing physical labor for three days I didn’t have any pain. I also have clearer thought, and feel more upbeat. I am absolutely amazed at the results that Thrive has produced.

The iconic “LV” stands for and means more, than you can ever imagine. Here are some of the highlights of LV and what it could be for you


  • Free Enrollment
  • Best Compensation plan
  • $300 – $500 working only part time from home
  • $800 car bonus paid to lower level promoters (not just at highest levels
  • Win weekly contests for free lifestyle items like Gucci, RayBan, iPads, iPods and much, much more.

The LV Life VIP Launch is exploding!


The Verdict:

Level products have helped a lot of people feel better. If you just want some wellness products then these are as good as any others.

HOWEVER: If you are looking at joining Thrive or any other Network Marketing business as a way to make money you need to know this!

Many people every year get into Network Marketing hoping to make it big and retire today. The truth is less than 1% of those that join a MLM program actually make more than they spend.

I know that’s not exactly the news you wanted to hear. But there IS good news.

Large ticket items have always been the next step for even the most successful Network Marketer. The average number to each sale are the same no matter how much the item is being sold for. The math is simple, talk to 100 people and you will make 1 sale.

If you make $1 off each sale then you wont make very much. But what if you could make $15000 – $5000 off each sale? That is where the bigger money is. If you are looking to make money this really is the way to go!

    What a SCAM!

    • thank you, uh, ……. “dude”. for your thoughtful insight!

    • Not a scam. Works great for me and my niece. Has improved my life 100%. Not hungry all the time. Not in as much pain as before. Can walk up and down steps without hurting. I think clearer. I can’t begin to explain how much better my life has become. Something people will just have to try.

    • Brent at 10:30 pm

      I don’t think it’s a scam per say … But just save money… Take Walgreens multivitamin a cup of coffee and 1-2 sudafed and save your money

  2. Winona at 4:46 pm

    I personally have been taking this product for 6 weeks and the dramatic results have been very surprising! I was a skeptic myself. But after getting off my prescription meds, and have lost weight and feel amazing, have an enormous amount of energy and mental clarity, I have to say my friend this company is going blow the other health products out of picture. You take two capsules a day, one shake, and then put the DFT on your arm – then you are ready for the day. Better than taking ten different pills and getting B12 shots each week for energy.

    • That is really great. I know the products are good. Working the business has been harder than expected for a lot of people. This type of program setup can be a hard sell, especially when you have skeptical people you are dealing with

      • Jmmt7 at 6:37 pm

        The problem isn’t the product. I am on it and it is wonderfull and the people around me can see that I have more energy, my workouts are more effective and I now have the clarity to make it through the day… The problem is the cost. It is pricy. I understand you have to make up for the cost of making the product, in my opinion it is worth it but I don’t know how long I can afford it….

        • I think the idea is that you would get compensated from telling others about it so the cost is offset by the income. Good quality ingredients cost a lot of money.

          • Brent at 10:22 pm

            How do you know it’s quality ingredients.? Where’s I the research? I can’t find any. Seems like there are lots of stimulants in the products

        • Mselfie@yahoo.com at 10:34 pm

          I understand where you are coming from. It could be a whole lot cheaper if it wasn’t sold through multi level marketing. way to many people making money off one sale, I would rather see people being able to afford a good product than to see people making money off of people who really needs the help of a product that works.

          • Anton English at 5:18 pm

            Most products sold through MLM are not more expensive because of the advertising medium. In fact, they usually just take their advertising budget and re-direct the funds. What do you think the advertising budget for RedBull or Monster Energy is? Ill give you a hint, its measured in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

            Now imagine all that money being paid to a local Brand Partner.

            In this way the products are able to be competitive in the market, and everyone has an opportunity to make some money talking about the products they love

        • Greg at 11:24 am

          that is the beautiful thing about thrive.. jmmt7 they give you the opportunity to find two referrals and once you have those two referrals you will get your product at literally next to nothing… the great thing is you already have a head start, your experience if you are doing it correctly will pay for itself even if you are paying out of pocket like myself, its called prioritize and redistribution…. i personally have noticed that i no longer buy coffee, energy drinks, soda, and just about everything with sugar, -EDIT- just giving up all that -EDIT- naturally has allowed me to afford to pay for it out of pocket… my food consumption has dropped so i am not spending as much on food and my appetite has changed and i no longer eat junk so i am saving money there, overall in a way i feel that even though i am paying full price because i have not attempted to find two solid referrals mostly because im not uptight about spending the money on something that is benefitting me in so many other ways in reality even paying full price i feel like i am getting more than my moneys worth so in a sense i am profiting on benefits…. the mental clarity it gives you in time will actually allow you to make a way to afford it without physically changing anything in your life just redistributing the money you have that you are no longer spending on -EDIT- to cover it and everything else will fall in place

    • Since my last post about a year ago, I would like to retract my comment. I am no longer on Le-Vel and no longer promoting the product. It is great for energy, I will give it that!

      • Winona,

        Was there any specific reason why you stopped doing the business? Have you moved on to something else, or are you interested in trying something else?

      • Lynda at 8:48 am

        Did you have any problems with it.
        I just started today and it seems to make my heart race.

        • Girl check the ingredient lists, along with vitamins and other “natural” things it’s loaded with caffeine! Don’t know an ingredient offhand look it up.

        • Marie at 10:49 pm

          be sure to drink plenty of water

      • Kat at 9:38 am

        I’m curious Winona- why are you no longer on Le-Vel or promoting the product

      • Sherri at 7:45 pm

        So may I ask why you are no longer using it?

    • I agree with you. I love Thrive.

    • carey at 12:29 am

      Winona, I too after trying Thrive was able to stop taking pain meds for Chronic back issues and B12 shots for lack of energy….and numerous other things….Thrive has given me my quality of life back….I believe in this product so much I am now a Brand Promotor of Thrive….I love sharing my experience and making people feel amazing…

  3. Morgan Hanson at 4:25 pm

    This product is a life savor! I have always had back pain, and knee pain, and no energy! Now I have no pain, and Energy to last me all day and all night, without being Jittery. I LOVE THRIVE!

    • That is awesome you have had such great experiences with these products. A lot of people I come in contact with that are part of Thrive complain that the comp plan really overloads them on products that they just cant keep up with. Its nice to hear someone with a different experience

  4. david tanner at 9:13 am

    another bullshit ponzi scam

    • David, Its too bad you are relying on your ignorance to make that kind of claim.

      Yes , Charles Ponzi is the father of real scams, and people make new ones every day. This however does NOT fall under the definition of a Ponzi Scheme (scam). As hard as I try to educate the masses some people just don’t get it.

      Your mind is like a parachute my friend, it works a hell of a lot better when it is OPEN!

      • david tanner at 12:43 pm

        a man named WC FIELDS once said “there’s a sucker born every minute” scams like you prove him to be oh so right

        • David, You are so right. I think with current population growth there are actually TWO suckers born every minute now.

          It seems in your attempt to NOT be considered one of those suckers you have turned into a cynical skeptic instead. In all honesty, I am not sure what is worse. You see, I work with the people you would consider a “sucker” every day. These people have no idea that someone like you even exists, yet they are making 5 figures a MONTH. So while you (a self proclaimed “Non sucker”) sit here passing judgement, these other “suckers” don’t even care you exist and are still waiting for your “lucky break”

          Your mind is like a parachute my friend, it works a helluva lot better when it is opened!

          • Brent at 10:26 pm

            Where the hell is the science research…. Premium grade based on what? Where’s the proof

          • Anton English at 11:04 am

            That’s a good question. People can claim anything they like but aren’t usually challenged on it. If you find any then I am happy to see it

    • I hate to tell you this but everything you buy is a pyramid unless you buy all your food from a farmer or go directly to the source. Do you buy your shoes from nike or do you go to a store to buy all your products in most cases you are buying from the 3rd guy in the pyramid and that’s a fact. If you go to any nutrition store its the same thing. They are great products that give the little guy a chance to make some money instead of the giant chain stores.

      • You are preaching to the choir. Its hard teaching others that fact though. They just dont seem to get it a lot of the time.

        • Sarah at 11:26 am

          I get it, and agree.

        • Hannah at 5:06 pm

          Hey I tried THRIVE for the first time yesterday and it made my blood pressure spike and i felt very jittery…is that a normal side-effect?

          • sara d at 7:29 pm

            i am interested in this, as well…… strange that you have not received a reply…. hmmmmm

          • Lisa at 2:27 pm

            Hello, Some people do better on one capsule until their body works up to two. You shouldn’t have blood pressure issues from it, but if you are concerned then you should talk to your doctor about it. My recommendation is to start the product slower and drink plenty of water. It really is a great product.

          • Greg at 11:36 am

            Hanna i have only one question for you did you consume ANYTHING with caffeine in it? coffee soda an energy drink etc? if so that is why thrive is not meant to be taken in conjunction with caffeine, it has its own sources of caffeine and to put it in perspective you just drank a 20 redbull and then decided to top it off with 3 5 hour energies… yeah you are gonna feel like crap and spike your blood pressure because doing both is not necessary, using caffeine with thrive is essentially counterproductive…. or you were not drinking enough water but those are the only or 3 things , the easiest way i can explain it wake up take capsules on empty stomach, while the capsules are working into your system hop in the shower and get that out of the way now you are clean, and by the time you are done you will be ready for the shake followed by the DFT, when you put the DFT on you are set for the day but you still have to remember a few things one thrive is a supplement not a substitute you still have to eat, and drink plenty of water throughout the day do this and you will have the optimal experience…

    • Sherri at 6:36 pm

      Did you know it’s legal to produce vitamins synthetically in a lab? Even organic products are allowed to contain synthetic ingredients and still carry the Department of Agriculture’s “organic” seal. All that it takes for a supplement to be labeled “botanical” is that it be derived from actual living plants and not manufactured in a test tube. Plus, supplements aren’t held to the same standards as drugs and don’t have to go through all the same tests. If you take vitamins, botanicals, or other supplements, look for those with the “USP Verified” mark. That means it meets the standards of quality, purity, and potency set by the nonprofit U.S. Pharmacopeia

      A growing consumer safety concern is dietary supplements spiked with prescription drugs. More than 400 of these dangerous products have been recalled since 2008 — mostly the ones used for bodybuilding, weight loss, and sexual enhancement. The laced products contain the same or similar active ingredients as prescription drugs and some are even laced with synthetic steroids.

  5. dEE at 6:31 pm

    If the product works then what is the problem .Some people R into selling & some aren’t .I for one am A buyer & not A seller.I am so hoping it will work 4 me !!

    • Hello Dee,

      There is absolutely no problem. If you found something and it is working for you then keep on doing it. This is more of a review on the business from a business stand point. The products themselves are not in question. The ability to use those products to market and ultimately create an income for yourself is somewhat doubtful.

      I wish you well on your journey. If you do run into trouble or need some help let me know.

  6. maggie at 10:10 pm

    As someone who was on thrive for the past few months,it is amazing,UNTIL you don’t have it,I have been on my face for the four days I have been without,and I crave it like I imagine someone craves hard drugs…I’m over it,nothing should make you crave it,and CRASH HARD with out it.

    • Hi Maggie,

      Thank you for sharing your experience. I have not tried thrive, but I have used other health food juices. I found it to be something that I didn’t necessarily crave, but when you didn’t have it for a couple days your body would let you know something was wrong. I took that not to mean that I craved it though, rather there was something missing in my regular food intake that my body wanted and this was the way it was getting it.

      • Sarah at 8:09 am

        why do you promote something that you are not using? no judgement, just curious.

        • Anton English at 10:35 am

          Hi Sara,

          That is a fair question, so I will give you an honest answer.

          a couple years ago one of my blog readers asked if I could host an article about LV Thrive for him. We worked out an agreement where I would provide web space for him to essentially advertise. This brought in a lot of new contacts for him to share the thrive experience with. After a few months he decided that thrive was not for him, so he closed his account. This article was picking up traction and getting a lot of organic traffic every day. I decided to leave it up.

          I currently promote a different wellness based product. That doesn’t mean that Thrive is bad, it just means I choose to not use it. But I think the information here is relevant, and the massive amount of traffic through this site from the content doesn’t hurt either.

          If you stroll through some of the other content on this site you will see that there are a number of other brands I have written about and reviewed that I am not personally using either. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. and I don’t feel that it could be judged negatively towards either.

          The offer is out there for any Thrive brand partners if they want their contact information added to this article to direct traffic to them and make new contacts just let me know. There can be a mutual advantage to them and myself.

          • Sarah at 11:23 am

            Fair enough…to each his own. Variety of opinions are interesting.

          • Jo at 5:32 pm

            Hello Anton, I am a new Thrive promoter
            Would be interested to know more details please.

          • Anton English at 9:40 pm

            Hi Jo,

            You can see the details about it here http://antonenglish.com/your-mlm-advertised-here/

            Since the article is already written and getting a large amount of traffic there will be a bit different structure. Or you can take advantage of that opportunity exactly how it is on that link.

            Let me know if you have any questions

    • StephB at 7:03 am

      Your body craves it & you crash hard because when taking Thrive, you are filling all your body’s nutritional gaps and giving your body what it needs. You take that away & they are no longer being filled, then obviously you won’t feel great without it. You go from your body operating at peak condition to crap again. Perhaps you should consider getting back on Thrive for that mental clarity boost it provides & you would realize this!

      • N Schmidt at 1:47 pm

        How can the body possibly have all these nutritional gaps again after only a couple of days not taking Thrive and make people crash like that? I don’t think so…it has to be addictive.

    • Greg at 11:44 am

      maggie i actually used to think like this but i had a friend put that feeling into perspective…. what you are experiencing isn’t so much the fact that you need it, but in a sense if you want to compare it to smoking weed…. say marijauna makes you feel better and then you go through that period of withdrawal for not having it… you are more the less sobering up and looking at the reality of your life before and after… you are seeing first hand how miserable you really were before you started thriving, and honestly thats one of the reasons i myself am so committed to it, i have seen how it has changed my life and that time period i had without it was my aha moment because i actually seen the totality of the difference before and after and once that happened i never wanted to go back to the miserable existence i was in prior to finding thrive

  7. Sonia Theis at 7:55 pm

    I am on day #5. I love the energy I have on this. I’m ready to stop all of my prescription meds. My only problem is that I am experiencing alot of bloating after a meal. DO you think I am not drinking enough water with the Thrive Experience? Only about 3 glasses a day to be honest with you.

    • Hi Sonia,

      I wish I could offer you help with this. I am not a rep for Thrive and beyond speaking to reps and doing a review on the product I do not have any other information.

      I think most people could use more water though. So it cant hurt

    • Thrivin Jen at 6:21 pm


      Yes!!! Drink lots of water! Also keep in touch with the person who introduced you to Thrive! They can help! Keep Thriving!!

    • Kristal at 12:38 pm

      You are not drinking enough water. You really need to be drinking at least the minimum requirements for any other healthy person (8 8oz glasses), but it would be ideal if you were drinking more than that. There is also the possibility that you are not eating enough. Thrive curbs your appetite, so sometimes you “forget” to eat. When you do this too often, your body goes into starvation mode and stores fat, rather than getting rid of it. So make sure you’re eating good, sensible meals and drinking tons of water! 🙂

      • Lindsay at 1:01 pm

        How many meals a day are recommended? I know it curbs your appetite and you have a shake and pills for breakfast, do you still eat lunch and dinner?

        • Greg at 11:55 am

          Lindsay honestly the answer to your question is simple i stated it in a post above but Thrive is a supplement not a substitute, you should still eat normal, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that doesn’t NOT change because you are thriving…. as you continue in your journey you will notice that when you go shopping your body will tell you what to buy and what not to.. i went from being a meat and potatoes guy to someone who shops for mostly veggies and fruits i shop wiser and actually by things that are good for me, i still have meat and potatoes but not everyday like i used to, i find that now i am opening my palate to other forms of protein than just the staple meats… i allow myself the opportunity to enjoy the foods i love but i no longer eat a 24 oz steak because i love it i cut that steak into portions and eat less but still reap its benefits without harming myself so you should still eat something for breakfast hell even if its just an egg a sausage patty and piece of toast you still have to put food in your body you are just not gonna put as much in

    • Lucy at 9:47 am

      Thrive contains natural probiotics (healthy bacteria that live naturally in your gut). Most people, myself included, do not have enough due to lifestyle. There is an adjustment period for the body when you feed it what it actually needs! Bloating is a natural part of the process! Stay hydrated and keep eating well!
      Hope this was helpful!

    • StephB at 7:05 am

      You need to drink LOTS of water – half your body weight in ounces, whether you’re Thriving or not. 3 glasses of water/day is NOT enough. There is an intestinal cleanse called Balance they have that will cut the bloat and clean up your digestive tract so you can better absorb the nutrients. But again, water, water, water!!!! If you aren’t drinking enough, your body can’t flush all the bad stuff up = BLOAT!

      • Siss at 8:33 pm

        I drank tons of water & took the balance was on program for 12 weeks & was so bloated I appeared to be 6 months preg. I loved the energy but the bloat & discomfort was horrible. The only way I didn’t bloat was if I eat nothing!

        • Lindsay at 1:02 pm

          Yikes that is the last thing I am looking for to happen! I am debating on getting on this product for the energy and jump stat to my diet. Maybe not huh?

          • Chantelle Clark at 12:01 pm

            Every person is different. When I have the shake I don’t bloat at all. I drink the acceptable amount of water (I don’t over due it or anything) and have had great results when being on the product.

            The only way to find out if you are going to bloat or not is to try it. Honestly, the product has worked wonders for people and hasn’t for others. Your body is unique and will use the nutrients in it in a different way.

    • Winona at 9:36 am

      Hi Sonia, the bloating I will presume is from the excessive amount of probiotics in the shake. They advertise that one serving amounts to 1600 cups of yogurt. Yikes! That is a lot of yogurt.

    • Yes not enough water. And your body is still detoxing at this point.

  8. WingsThree at 11:47 am

    Reading the ingredients of their product line, it’s pretty obvious that this is another attempt to hyper-sell over-priced holy grails to people who are generally desperate to make a fast buck. Having been down the personal road of poor health – overweight, high blood pressure, etc, I ditched the weight, eat properly now (no magic pills or other homeopathic nonsense, been there, done that) I am now in the best health of my life, run marathons, 11% body fat. This is done without magic pills that offer better health, and sorely lacks the science and data to back up their claims.

    In short, just another scam. Nothing substitutes for exercise and proper dietary habits. Ripping people off in the name of “homeopathic wellness” seems to be the American way. Do your research before you embark on a costly “plan” that makes unsubstantiated, uncorroborated claims.

    • I agree that the only thing people need to do (in a general sense) is to get outside and be active, and start making better eating choices.

      This review was more from a business standpoint. Just like Tobacco, Drugs, and Beer…… everyone has a choice what they buy and put into their body. Somebody has to provide that. I find most “health conscious” people are the first to be judgmental of peoples health choices, but giving people the choice is important. They can choose to do as you do, and eat “right”. Or they can eat in a more convenient way, and supplement that with good vitamins. I don’t think that Thrive is necessarily the right product to do that. But again, they exist because people are buying it. I prefer Vemma, and it is what we feed our children. Unlike Thrive it does have medical studies that have been done, and its open to anyone to read through if they want. Nothing is hidden, and its all there for the curious person to read through.

      • Greg at 12:10 pm

        Anton English nothing is hidden about Thrive all you have to do is take the time to do your due diligence its all right there on Le vels site the ONLY thing that is not specified and hidden is the proprietary blend… in essence you are not being lied to when they tell you what is in it the only thing they are keeping from you is the proprietary blend which is essentially (THEIR) family recipe, i mean if you had a specialized spaghetti sauce that was better than every other brand on the shelf are you gonna tell everyone how much of each ingredient is in it or are you just going to tell them the ingredients?

          No Problem Greg,

          I was saying that Vemma has had their products actually reviewed and tested to prove the claims they make in a laboratory with repeatable results.

          I am not trying to imply that Thrive is in any way hiding anything. Just that to my knowledge their results are made by customer testimonials and not by a third party that conducts a controlled experiment.

          That isnt to say the results are not there for Thrive. There are plenty of brands out there that work great and have never been tested. Unfortunately there are a LOT that have no results but make big claims. Its hard to separate the difference between the two though.

          • Sherri at 2:28 pm

            You should really read up on detoxing that everyong claims is why they feel like shit when they take the supplement. They keep telling everyone, oh, just keep taking it, it`s just your body detoxing. There is no such thing as detoxing your body. If toxins did build up in a way your body couldn’t excrete, you’d likely be dead or in need of serious medical intervention. “The healthy body has kidneys, a liver, skin, even lungs that are detoxifying as we speak.” “There is no known way – certainly not through detox treatments – to make something that works perfectly well in a healthy body work better.”

            With celebrity advocates from Gwyneth Paltrow to Oprah Winfrey, detoxing has become big business. Rich Peppiatt thinks he’s found the solution to our detoxing obsession … and it tastes a bit like liquified animal.

            Much of the sales patter revolves around “toxins”: poisonous substances that you ingest or inhale. But it’s not clear exactly what these toxins are. If they were named they could be measured before and after treatment to test effectiveness. Yet, much like floaters in your eye, try to focus on these toxins and they scamper from view. In 2009, a network of scientists assembled by the UK charity Sense about Science contacted the manufacturers of 15 products sold in pharmacies and supermarkets that claimed to detoxify. The products ranged from dietary supplements to smoothies and shampoos. When the scientists asked for evidence behind the claims, not one of the manufacturers could define what they meant by detoxification, let alone name the toxins.

            Yet, inexplicably, the shelves of health food stores are still packed with products bearing the word “detox” – it’s the marketing equivalent of drawing go-faster stripes on your car. You can buy detoxifying tablets, tinctures, tea bags, face masks, bath salts, hair brushes, shampoos, body gels and even hair straighteners. Yoga, luxury retreats, and massages will also all erroneously promise to detoxify. You can go on a seven-day detox diet and you’ll probably lose weight, but that’s nothing to do with toxins.

          • Anton English at 6:38 am


            I think you are missing one point, We can see and measuring the effects of our lifestyle choices in the amount of obesity and diseases people have. Cancer rates are getting higher and higher, as well as less serious medical issues. ……Diabetes anyone? Maybe its not toxins that are causing this. But something foreign to our bodies is getting in somehow and causing these issues.

            The healthy effects of any supplement could be manifested by simply eating healthier. But as society members we are all lazy. We dont have time to cook a balanced meal, or the time it takes to even prepare one. Something like this can be the answer for those people.

            If you end up eating less bad stuff (ie processed foods) then you will be healthier. I haven’t met a scientist or Dr on earth that would dispute that. This product and ones just like it are a gateway for someone that has done nothing for a long time, but wants to start their journey to taking control over their health. As they get comfortable with this, and lose some weight it will hopefully ignite a desire to do even more. That could be eating less Fast food, or picking up healthier choices at the grocery store.

            Everyone is on a journey and its wrong to criticize someone for not being on the same path as you, or being more along that path than what you think they should. As long as they are making better choices today than they were yesterday then they are winning.

            You can call those choices detoxing if that makes you feel better. Or you can call it making the job easier for your kidneys, liver, etc.

            Think of the food you eat as the amount of air in your car tires. Sure you can drive down the street on flat tires. But its a whole lot easier if they have the right amount of air in them. These products help people put more air in their tires. Which makes their body run more efficiently. If that isnt detoxing (getting the junk out and replacing it with something better) then maybe I dont understand what the word or even the concept is about.

    • Sarah at 11:50 am

      I agree. Eating properly is a better way to go. I noticed the lifestyles that are led, they don’t make room for an honest health regimen. A healthier Lifestyle, takes time, money, and effort. Becoming healthier is costly no matter how you look at it.
      And to the easy way out, why not, every body is doing it right….
      Nothing good comes easy.

      I wouldn’t call it a scam, when it is what it is. Just like any other product out there, it’s just presented in a different way….but it’s all marketing.

      my opinion…just sayin

    • Totally agree!

    • Greg at 12:04 pm

      WingsThree i am going to say this for the 3rd and final time on this thread THRIVE is not a substitute… it is a supplement…. thrive doesn’t replace working out…. but since we are on the subject of working out i will say this… you run don’t you? if you ran barefoot you would still complete your run, the only difference is if you had running shoes on you would get there a lil bit faster and basically thrive compares to those running shoes…

  9. ahuva at 11:00 am

    I’m interested this. But I found out reading the ingredients and it shows Vitamin A (as beta carotene) vitamin D (as a cholecalceforel) etc . What does it mean? Does it mean there is no real vitamin A instead of it as beta.. something like that? Can you explain?

    • Unfortunately I only reviewed this company as a business plan. I know that Vemma is full of everything you are after for vitamins and minerals. Why not try them out? http://www.VerveBode.Vemma.com

    • Lindsey Mothershead at 11:13 am

      The majority of Vitamin A is synthetic and man made. It is made in a lab. Beta Carotene is the natural form of vitamin A that is found in carrots and some leafy vegetables. The (as Beta Carotene) is just letting you know that this is the natural Vitamin A and not a synthetic man made version. Hope that helps.

      • Sherri at 7:56 pm

        Then how can they claim that Thrive is all natural when it obviously is not? You get the energy from the stimulants they put into it. Any negative effects, they claims you’re detoxing, whatever the heck that means. I listened on utube to Angel Fletcher do a training session on Plexus and it’s interesting that Plexus makes the exact same claims as Thrive. Funny thing is, Plexus was a scam. The same people who owned Plexus are the same people involved in Thrive. Coincidence? I think not. They just move from one MLM scam to another, and people will buy anything if it claims it’ll help them lose weight by just popping a pill.

        • Greg at 12:33 pm

          Sherri first off the stimulants that are in thrive are in the ingredients that are in thrive… i.e. the caffeine comes from tea leaf, green coffee bean and guarana, all of those are natural plant based derivations…. As for your claim that plexus and thrive are made by the same people is bullshit all you have to do is go on both respective sites and look at the company info and you will see that for yourself… as for the similar claims.. let me put this into perspective, if i had you ten ingredients and take those same ten ingredients and we have a cook off does that mean our dish is going to taste the same?…. before i even started taking thrive i consulted my physician, and went over the whole product with him…. he explained to me what each ingredient was and how it will effect my body… Thrive does not claim anything more than being what it is… a proprietary blend of all natural ingredients… they company doesn’t go around saying take this it will lessen your pain, they dont say take this you will lose weight they make none of those claims… it is people like me and others who have tried the product and seen how much of a benefit it was to their everyday life that sells the product, its not the company itself making the claims it is the testimonials of people who actually committed to the program that see the benefits and want to give everyone the opportunity to feel as great as that individual does… will you lose weight on thrive ? if you are overweight it is possible but thrive is a product that works with the individual needs of ones body…. the bioavailabilty is amazing because although the sun and vitamin d milk offer vitamin d, doesn’t mean your body will absorb what it needs because the lesser the quality of the ingredients the lesser the bioavailabitly Honestly in my personal opinion i see people who never even try the product or do not use it correctly say this dont work or its not going to work… well let me tell you this if you haven’t really experienced it then you are in the dark, you may consider me a sucker because i choose to pay out of my own pocket for the product but in reality it is me that is laughing at you because you couldn’t even give forth the effort to see what you are really missing out on… and at the end of the day its not hurting me in fact it is me that is laughing because i led them to the water but instead of drinking they would rather just complain about how they are thirsty

    • Don at 5:15 pm

      Hello ahuva,
      These are the names for the natural ingredients that give you vitamin and vitamin d.

  10. Barbara J Power at 3:04 pm

    All I can say: If it sounds to good to be true,then it probably is. Testimonies that claim, “I took the capsule and immediately…” Minerals and vitamins don’t work that fast. Only stimulants do that. I find the lack of detail on the ingredients and how that patch works questionable. I’m calling this a scam, and I’m sorry cause some of my good friends are buying into this. Miracles come from God, not from a pill.

    • Hey Barbera,

      You are correct. God also put the vegetables, herbs, spices, and other natural ingredients on this earth for the healing of man. He also works in small and simple ways. There is no doubt that eating right can heal a multitude of illnesses, can taking supplements aid in that? I think so. Will THRIVE do this for you? I dont know. Obviously I use different products personally that I believe make a difference. Its not an instant “hey, I am cured” type thing. But when you arent getting sick when everyone else around you is, you have to attribute that to something dont you??

      • Barbara J Power at 8:46 am

        That wasn’t the content of my statement. I was reading testimonials and many of them claimed instant relief. That has to be bogus. It takes a minimum of 20 minutes for medication to enter the blood stream, so no ingested pill will work immediately.

        As far as the MLM, I bought that package too many times. I know what it takes and it’s not worth the effort unless you start at the top before everyone is tired of hearing the “wonderful opportunity.” And say you don’t have to be a salesman, because sales is what it’s all about; that and products that flat cost too much.

        So, count me a non-believer. Barb

        • Barb,

          You sound like a believer that has conditions on your belief. You said it yourself……”I know what it takes and it’s not worth the effort”

          You know it works, but you dont feel like putting in the effort. Thats perfectly fine. Most people dont put in the effort. You just know yourself well enough to know that you will never put in the effort required to be more than what you are right now. So you are saving yourself a pile of growth from stepping outside your comfort zone. I will take a guy with boundless amounts of enthusiasm over the smartest person in the world. They will make it work 100 times better than someone like yourself.

          So, to summarize…… “scam” it is not!

          “HARD WORK” is what it is. Most people are afraid of success because it wears coveralls and looks a lot like work. That doesn’t make it a scam. It just makes it “not worth it” to a lot of people.

        • Judy at 3:58 pm

          I felt the same way before I started my Thrive Experience. I can say first hand that I noticed a difference for the better in the first day of taking it. I have been taking it for 9 weeks. It is a clean type of energy with no jittery side effects that I had gotten from other supplements. I just wanted to let you know first hand, it works for me, but to each their own…everyone is different.

        • Greg at 1:08 pm

          Barbara when someone says instantly i think you are taking it out of context… thrive is a 3 step program so taking the pills isn’t the whole deal…. the reason some people feel it instantly is because their bodies are not totally out of wack and when you finish the 3rd step for that day putting on the DFT (derma fusion technology) the pill should have already started to absorb and you get that punch of caffeine that someone who is a day one or that has been doing it for sometime feels for me day one i had so much energy i ran 3.5 miles nonstop without really even losing my breath and i hadn’t worked out in years i wasn’t tired or exhausted but the energy will last all day, and it will allow for better sleep when bedtime comes…. by day six i was waking up and completing all the tasks that i would do before i go to bed before my alarm clock even went off so i was coming home to a clean house after getting ready for work i was completing things that i have been putting off day after day…month after month year after year, now i am waking up with a list of things to do and if i dont add to it throughout the day i will have no list at the end… the only way you will change being a non believer into being a believer is to try it and listen to the ones who have had success with it cause honestly they are the ones who know what they are talking about

    • Greg at 12:47 pm

      Barbara if they are trying to convice you and it sounds to good to be true they just don’t understand how the product is meant to work…. ( i like to consider these type of people the that say well I’m gonna get back to working out and they do one workout and start complaining that they are not seeing results, well thrive works in a therapeutic fashion, it really all depends on the diet and lifestyle before you begin the product, if you were eating mcdonalds everyday for the last three years i can say this much dont expect to be a day one thriver… i mean afterall it is marketed as an 8 week experience, if you cant commit to that then you are not gonna see the results, the better in shape your body is the more likely you will see that aha moment alot sooner… but still should not be expected… now as for all these people saying it is a scam or false claims have you completed the 8 week experience? i thought so most of them probably haven’t even gave it a chance to work… me i was fortunately a day one individual… some people will see it day one some day 10 some day 30 but when i look at the situaton i compare it to the theory if you cant make the commitment you shouldn’t expect to see the benefits another reason me personally i suggest buying it out of pocket for the 8 weeks this way you have something invested in it when you give someone something for nothing they have no incentive to take it seriously… i paid $225 my first month and i have made purchase after purchase varying between $160 and $225 month after month because i am convinced and no skeptic that is not even willing to commit to it for themselves and nothing more, will ever change my mind… or make me think that my investment was not worth the reward So as to all the skeptics out there all i got to say is this if your not willing to commit….. shit or get off the pot cause there is no time for you to lolligag on the toilet while others feel like they want to take a shit if you have not experienced it then you have no knowledge or fact to talk on you are speaking from ignorance and you are only making yourself look stupid in the long run

    • Greg at 12:58 pm

      Barbara so you are telling me that if god not make it himself it is not a miracle?… well let me ask you this… since you are believer in god i will use cancer as a subject, god made cancer he is the creator of all… but it was man under the guidance of god who has created pills and medicines that although it doesn’t cure cancer it allows for treatment… is that not a miracle? i mean how can you say God has no play in this…. as for the immediately yeah the energy could spike day one but it dont always happen…. I was introduced to Thrive by a comrade from when i was in the military…. he tried numerous times to introduce it to me sooner than when i began i turned him down and said alot of the same things everyone else did… tried to justify why i didn’t need it blah blah, but i realized i was lying to myself, i thought life couldn’t not get any better than it was and ill end with this much i was wrong….. BIG TIME…. i feel like $100,000,000.00 … in other words thrive has allowed me to feel as great as everyone deserves to feel… i am just enlightened to it because i listened instead of trying to talk….. i realized that everything my buddy told me about thrive was everything i was lacking but it took time for me to commit to it…. but honestly i am forever gratfeul that he didn’t just give up on me it completely changed my life and it will do the same for anyone willing to take the time and just commit to it

    • Barbara,
      As a new thriver myself I had the same skepticism as you do. But when I started thrive I did so with an open mind that my experience was not going to be the same as everyone else. Did I start to immediately feel different? You bet I did. It wasn’t a great difference from the life style before to the first day I started. But I experienced a lot more energy that I have never gotten off coffee and soda. I had energy to play with my 5 year old and one year old. I no longer crave the sugar and caffeine from coffee, an energy drink or a soda. I have all the natural sugar I need for me body with my Thrive. All I am saying is that you have to honestly try it and I mean honestly try it. No well so and so said I should be feeling this or that. You have to take everything you have read and put it aside and have an open mind about it. It’s like going to see a movie you really want and all you hear is a majority of bad things but close friends say awesome things about it. Your still going to see it right? Because you want to experience how good or bad the movie was for yourself. This is exactly how thrive is.

  11. Barbara J Power at 3:07 pm

    And people, PLEASE, don’t stop your medications without talking to your doctor. That’s just downright dangerous.

    • absolutely agree. If your rep for ANY natural products are telling you to start cutting back on your medications you should tell your Dr your plans and he can at least run tests while you do it so you can be watched closer.

      • lynn at 10:41 am

        I am a Brand promoter of Thrive, I have never heard anyone tell another to just stop taking their meds without first talking to their Doctor…..yes this is something that you have to take if it is going to work, as for me I had way rather take this than all the pain meds that I was having to take for my knees, the pain meds made me feel groggy and like all I wanted to do was sit on the couch all day and I still had a certain amount of pain where as Thrive does the opposite and I now have about 10% pain of what I did have… it’s a matter of choice…

    • Sherri at 6:13 pm

      I totally believe that the energy people are getting is from the stimulants. Medications do not work that fast, particularly herbal meds…they actually take longer than pharmaceutical meds to work. Any Canadians should watch Marketplace, or google it and watch it on line. They are doing a segment on supplements and what’s really in them and what these companies are claiming are in them. Kinda eye opening.

      • Agreed!

      • Greg at 1:20 pm

        Barbara THRIVE IS NOT MEDICATION… but i will say this much… i was taking a medication for depression,ptsd,and a host of other problems i.e. knee pain… i was taking a pill daily that was destroying my liver but i couldn’t function without that pill, needless to say i talked to my doctor and informed him of my goals and wouldn’t you know …. i am no longer taking that pill, i am no longer depressed… i no longer have anxiety, i no longer have knee pain from my reconstructive surgery…. thrive is NOT medication, but what it does for your body will most likely may eliminate the need for that medication….

    • Angela at 9:33 pm

      I’m on a Blood Pressure Medicine called lozartan potassium and I tried thrive 3 times and quit. The first time I didn’t feel so great but was losing belly inches but my promoter died and it scared me that maybe she passed away from it since it was she died at the age of 28 with no apparent reason.I havent heard the results of the autopsy but she was a healthy person who got up in the night and died and she had been taking thrive w for about a year so I got the nerve up a couple of other times but felt a horrible pressure and didn’t feel good so I am not taking it any more except the shakes which dont have the bas stuff that the pills have.

      • Sherri at 1:52 pm

        Gee, sorry to hear about her death at such a young age. Hopefully it’s not related to Thrive. I’m not clear on this whole product, as they advertise it as an 8 week thing, but then I read people who are taking it for long periods of time, and some claiming they will take it forever. I was under the impression you took it for 8 weeks and that was it. It’s the vagueness about their website that I don’t like. There’s no instructions on how to take it. I’d be interested also to see what the autopsy says…please keep us posted if you can.

        • Greg at 1:32 pm

          Sherri any promoter who has had any success with the program has all that knowledge, you take the pills on an empty stomach, 15 mins-20 later you drink the shake and put on the dft go about your day as normal and drink water avoid caffeinated products thats all there really is to it… but if you don’t follow it in the manner the promoter shares and/or if you get a bad promoter that don’t know what they are talking about you might not have the experience you are seeking… but Thrive has advertised it from the beginning 3 simple steps … the 8 week experience is just a recommendation to actually feel the results…. it could take up to 8 weeks for you to actually begin to feel better you could feel it day one… the 8 week experience is just a commitment you make you set your goals prior to you experience and you work towards them…. each day you will do the same thing as the day before the 3 steps and when you have that aha moment that a lot of people who say it don’t work, do not experience because it was day 3 and the product isn’t working so they quit…. believe me when i say this…. im not trying to sell you the product but if you committed to the 8 week experience and did just as i was saying above you would have that moment and you will realize that you never want to feel the way you felt before that is what the 8 week expereince is about…. you dont know what your missing out on until you do know, and when you do know you will not want to go back

  12. I was recently introduced to thrive. It caught my eye how much energy these people have! .. i was on a natural capsule supliments from my doctor i gotta say one pill he gave me gave me soo much energy i went into an addiction of them. I suffered from anxiety & blood pressure. I quit any stimulants i cannot do it again..

    I now take pro-5 , Bio cleanse & slim drink & have lost 30 pounds am off my blood pressure meds & my anxiety is minimul to none.

  13. Sparky at 12:52 pm

    Thrive vitamins contain nothing more than your regular daily multi vitamins that you can buy at Walgreens for about $15. Thrive vitamins are $100 a month. The salespeople then tell you that you have to drink this probiotic shake to obtain the proper results of the vitamins. really folks? Check out the ingredients. 3 are high powered caffeine and 4 are dangerous stimulants that should NOT be partnered with caffeine. These stimulants casue dangerous effects to people on blood thinners, have osteoporsis, glaucoma, high blood pressure, and people on types of anti depressants and ADHD meds. Had I have not done the research on these ingrediants, the interaction it would have had with my presciption med would have given me a heart arithmia and possible heart attack. I asked the salesperson why there is stimulants in the shakes? They refused to answer me and referred me to a “support staff”. Ha! Really? Support staff simply means legal interns that can give an answer in order to do damage control. This crap is dangerous. They WILL NOT tell you the side effects…which are, by the way, habit addicting, liver failure, kidney failure, stroke, and its endless. DO your research folks. You want more energy? Save your $180 a month, go to the gym, get a trainer, and eat right. Oh yeah, you get yours free if you get 2 people to recruit- which tells you how overpriced it is.

    • As with anything, you should be talking to your Dr about any vitamins you are planning to take. Especially if you are on prescription drugs. It can have bad side affects as you pointed out.

      Have you looked at Vemma multi Vitamins as am alternative?

      • Concerned Mom at 12:09 pm

        I also would like to know about the addictive chemicals in this product, and i would also like to know what the adverse reactions are, you keep sidestepping this question, claiming you are just here to promote the product, i do not want to hear your nonsense, i want answers, and do not try to sell me on this product, it is just too good to be true, i want answers, and dont try to sell me on it either

      • sara d at 7:41 pm

        Vemma has been shut down by the feds for naughty pyramid scheme practices….. no website…. no longer available ….

        • Anton English at 9:29 am

          Hi Sara,

          they were in temporary receivership due to an investigation on claims of being a Pyramid Scheme.

          Since then the site has been turned back over to Vemma and is under construction to implement some of the items identified by the courts that should be adjusted to make them happy.

          The new and improved site should be up soon.

          This is a process that every Network Marketing company seems to go through. You dont hear about them all though because most of them shut down within 2 years so they never get that far. Since Vemma has been around for a while they got investigated. If Level sticks around long enough they will be investigated as well, and their sites shut down, operations halted. That doesnt mean they are bad, it just means that they look like they arent going away so its time to look into the legality of the program.

    • sherry at 5:00 pm

      I have had this since May and just made a shake had incredible energy but I have had to put my beloved best friend down and have been extremely depressed even suicidal. I have MS,A.D.H.D and Fibroids with extreme bleeding which caused extreme anemia to the point I could not even do anything even walking short distances without gasping for air. I feel wonderful right now but I’m worried about any side affects with thrive and could not find any information.

      • Anna May at 9:06 pm

        I reviewed the side effects on a different website after a friend completed suicide this weekend. There were no signs that he was even depressed and he left his young family behind. The side effects include anxiety, hallucinations and paranoia. Some side effects present in the first month, but most come on in months 2-6. He was just promoting the product so I looked into it because I need to wrap my head around this suicide. I don’t know if he stopped taking any medications, but I do know he is gone, and the above symptoms could be some information as to why. When a drug works on the head as fast as this and causes tingling and clears the brain…it’s hard to say what else it does to the brain.

        • Anton English at 8:12 am

          Im Sorry for the loss of your friend Anna. Its hard to know what is going through someones head when they decide to take their own life.

          It is a pretty strong accusation to say that Thrive itself was the only factor. As with anything that gives you increase in nutrients and other mixtures of drugs you should always consult a Dr. If your friend was on any sorts of medication he (as well as anyone else) should always talk to a dr that they trust to come up with a plan to monitor make sure they are getting the desired results.

          That wont help your friend now, but maybe others can learn from his life and experience and make sure to not play with your life on your own.

          • Anna May at 6:28 pm

            In re-reading my comment, I don’t believe I accused Thrive of anything. I was just making an observation, and based on the listed side effects, it might be an observation worth checking into. There are several websites containing Thrive information and side effects reported by others who took Thrive. The question whether Thrive could have affected his decision making is not concrete, however, the multiple sites, studies and reported side effects from people who use Thrive is concerning.

            I also included that I didn’t have any other information on medication. I am just putting this out there as a warning…there are listed side effects of paranoia, hallucinations and anxiety…reported by many others as well. It is a warning that needs to be explored and discussed to people can make an informed decision.

            Thrive may not have contributed to the suicide…then again it could have altered his brain just enough that he actually pulled the trigger! That’s the thing with suicide, we will never know. But what we do know, is that the above listed side effects have been reported by others, and this product is not FDA approved or tested. Just something to think about. As more people use the product, we will find out if this was a contributing factor. I myself prefer not to be a test subject.

          • Anton English at 9:18 am

            Sorry Anna May, when I read that you were implying that Thrive was to blame I took it to mean that you think Thrive is to blame.

            Since you never actually straight out said it I guess thats not what you actually meant. It is a pretty strong suggestion, and its one that is difficult to back up now that your friend has passed on.

            As with anything its always best to consult a Doctor before you start altering your medications. I am very sorry for your loss

    • Sandy at 10:29 pm

      My mom has been on Thrive for the last 3 weeks. Her blood pressure is improving. She no longer runs in the 200 range. She used to experience irregular heart beats when her blood pressure was over 200. She feels better than she has in a long time. My mom has tried every supplement you can think of, and not one of the supplements she has tried ever helped her blood pressure. As far as energy goes, she’s 83. She states that since she’s been on Thrive, she doesn’t mind getting up in the morning. Her aches and pains are greatly reduced. That is huge for her, because now she is excited to accompany my dad to Spain this summer.

        What a joke. The majority of you skeptics haven’t even researched this product. Thrive has pharmaceutical grade vitamins… Probiotics ARE indeed necessary to give you better absorbsion of nutrients and extraction of toxins. Please, do your research. Pharmaceutical grade products are higher grade than prenatal vitamins (medical grade), next level down is GNC, WM, CVS etc.. Which are cosmetic grade, lastly is agricultural grade. I see where you all are coming from because I was super skeptical about it myself… Until you’ve tried this product you will not understand how the 1,2,3 process works synergistically to give your body the nutrients it needs to perform the way it is supposed to. I have never felt better in my life and after several years of taking narcotic pain killers for an annular tear in my L5 (lumbar region) I am no longer taking the as of January of 2014. I lived with a pain level of about a 6 until I began taking Thrive in November 2014. Since then my pain levels averaged a 2-4… Up until recently when I switched to the DFT ultra patch about a week ago. For the first time in 10 years I can say I had NO pain in my back.. A level 0. And yes, you bet your tail I became a promoter. When you can relieve chronic pain with natural plant derived nutrients rather than mask the pain with synthetic narcotics, I’m all in. Three four weeks in as a promoter and I’m working hard to get every single person I know and love, this product for free by signing 2 people up under them as referrals. Not because I’ll make money from it (although that’s a nice perk) but because I love them and they deserve a better lifestyle than they’re living right now. All because I tried a sample and decided that week that if I have to pay for this myself out of pocket and am never able to refer two people, it’s worth it. Think about that the next time you spend $5 on a Starbucks or redbull, when you get that sugar crash.. And when you go to bed at night with pain. You know someone who is promoting Thrive, somwhere. So the one thing I really struggled with, let them give you a sample.. If you have to spend a few bucks to get it.. Take their word for it. They’re no out to get you, they want to share an experience. 150k people can’t be wrong read the testimonies

      if anyone asks if it will work with meds they are taking for any medical condition they should to talk to their own doctor. You and your own doctor know what works for you. I am on meds for my heart after having a heart attack 2 years ago and I use THRIVE with NO problems.NO 2 people are a like. Something that works for me may not work for you. We have to research the meds my son takes for his ADHD because he is also allergic to Red Dye 40. We don’t just give him meds because it is suppose to work we make sure we read the ingredient label and consult with doctor or Pharmacist first.

    • Derek at 7:09 pm

      Sparky! I like your fire!

      Unfortunately for you, I know things you don’t know and will deliver proof of your misinformation. If you don’t like Le-Vel or Thrive, that’s cool. Making BS accusations isn’t and I’m here to point them out. First point being, “Venom with No publically acknowledged actual experience with the products”

      I’m starting with your first rant. Because it proves what you don’t know and will put everything else you’ve said into doubt. Let me explain.

      You can not buy it all Walgreens for about $15. What you know and most people on the planet know as a daily vitamin or supplement falls into the Cosmetic grade classification. It’s one step up from the Agriculture Grade that composes the vitamins my neighbor feeds his cow. Cosmetic grade vitamins/minerals are mostly synthetic, a bi-product of petroleum manufacturing and are very cheaply made, with low proven absorption ratings, low overall purity and quality, with uneven dosing between products. That’s proven and why they are graded the way they are.

      What Thrive is, is a Pharmaceutical grade supplement. Between Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic is Medical Grade. I’ll simply say the Medical Grade is the half way point between Cosmetic grade and Pharmaceutical Grade. Pharmaceutical grade raws/components are of the purest form, the highest quality, have the highest tested absorption ratings and are the most consistent in dosage from unit to unit of all supplements. The lower you get on the grading scale, the less pure, less consistent and less absorbable a component gets. There’s a reason why no one believes in supplements and having an “experience”. They know the products from the stores you listed, have used the products and have had no results on the products. No one has a GNC experience! No one has a Walgreens experience! If such a thing existed, millions of people would be having it and loving it. Thrive gives people the experience, because of the pharmaceutical grade components used. People can’t absorb those near total synthetic components found in those stores. Cosmetic grade components/products literally get flushed down the drain, because you can’t shove a square peg through a round hole. Pharmaceutical grade components, on the other hand, allows us to slide a round peg, through a round hole. The only thing getting flushed is the toxins are body need to expel.

      Spreading FEAR and DOUBT is the easiest way to make any claim. For some reason, you’ve posted a bull’s-eye on Thrive and that’s fine. Just don’t post baseless opinions as fact. As an example. You’re support team would be people like me. Someone on your team with more experience and knowledge with the products and/or company. You mountain climbed and went over people’s heads. We are not lawyers. We are average everyday regular people who have used the Thrive products for extended lengths of time, with a vast knowledge base to pull from.

      Here’s a question. What if you’re wrong in our opinion? If you’ve stopped someone from being helped, because of your rant, or you’ve stopped someone from finding an answer to their prayers, can you live with yourself?

      I’m glad you looked the product information over before you took the Thrive Experience, as everyone should. Obviously, if people are on certain medications, Thrive is maybe not for them.

      We can’t possibly tell you all the side affects if you are taking medications or have medical conditions. We are not doctors and we tell everyone who questions us, “If there is a question, please take it to your doctors and have them review it with you”. We can tell you what it’s like to detox. We can tell you the symptoms that may occur with it. We can tell you how to try and minimize it IF it happens. Look down this page and you’ll see I’ve done it several times. It only happens to a small percentage of people that use Thrive. We know it and don’t run from it. We tell people about it and work with them through it. Then we celebrate it when it’s over.

      I’ve paid for 1 month of Thrive in the last 22 months of taking the products. Your $180 a month is now at $8 and change for me. Look at that. Half of what you said I could get it for at Walgreens! Because you seem to enjoy putting price tags on things, I’ll ask you about value. What price tag/value do you put on feeling the best you’ve felt in 20 years? What price tag/value do you put on being a better parent, because you have enough energy after work to actually play with your kids? What price tag/value do you put on being a better husband, wife to your spouse, because you’re just feeling better? What price tag/value do you put on finding relief from daily aches or discomforts? What price tag/value do you put on feeling free in your life once again?

      Mission 1 poster. Sorry for the length again

  14. sarah at 3:04 pm

    im feeling sceptical but im going to give this a go starting tomorrow!!

    • I would love to hear how it goes for you. My wife and I have been using Vemma for the last couple years and we don’t really see the need to switch. Its been working great for us.

  15. Carrie at 10:58 am

    Thrive does work. I tried the samples and was sold the first day.
    It’s the most positive product I have ever taken. There just isn’t anything bad to say about it sorry!!
    I have had more energy and gotten more done in a short amount of time than ever. Also I’ve been losing weight, have up coffee, and just feel more positive. If you have anything negative to say about it ITS because you haven’t tried it.

  16. Winona Rogers at 5:36 pm

    Thoroughly research this company, the business partners, and the product before you consider joining or purchasing. You should do that for any MLM company that you are considering investing into.

    • Deb at 11:37 am

      So Winona, do you research every company you do business with? You might not like what the leaders of your electric company are doing either. I actually quit reading your comments because I don’t see what information you are providing other than being negative.

  17. Jayci at 5:50 pm

    I had heard so much about this product, and had quite a few friends using it, so I figured I should give it a try.

    I’m a 26 year old mom of 3, and in fairly good health other than having fibromyalgia. After having a pretty in depth conversation with the consultant, she recommended that I use the capsules and the DFT Patch. I’m on Day 3.

    And I feel like I’m gonna die.

    Jitters, can’t sleep, severe anxiety, major depression, and no energy whatsoever. My body tells me I need to eat, but I’m just not hungry. And when I do eat, I get sick. My boyfriend is ready to take me to the ER. I’ve taken off the patch and I’m NOT going to take the capsules tomorrow, and hopefully I’ll be back to normal. I’ll try to keep everyone updated.

    As I lay in bed typing this, I’m seriously praying that it is only Thrive and not another problem. If I stop taking it and do return to normal, Thrive will absolutely positively be given 2 thumbs all the way down.

    • Thats really sad to hear the results you are having. I would definitely recommend you stop taking the products if your problems showed up the same time. Let your body normalize out, then give those products away or see if you can get a refund.

    • Al at 9:33 am

      I am feeling the same way…how are you feeling now?

    • Hi Jayci ~ I was just wondering how you are feeling now. I am in day 2 and experiencing some of the same side effects that you are from taking the products especially the patch which I have been informed is nothing more than a nicotine patch. I have high blood pressure and any additional stimulation from nicotine could be dangerous for me. I just can’t believe the company or it’s representatives do not tell you that about the patches. I hope you are ok…. Donny

    • Deedee at 11:51 am

      I was also on thrive for 5 days,two pills First day with shake ,and felt bad,then was told to cut it back to one pill not much better,by day 5 they had me doing just the 1 pill and nothing else,on day 5 that was it I’d had enough,jitteriness headache and felt as if I was going to pass out.no more for me

      • Angela at 9:39 pm

        I took thrive for 5 day’s but only took 1 capsule and half package of shake mix everyday because I have high blood pressure and I am on medication for high blood pressure.
        My experience was I felt yucky, tired and jittery but I was checking my blood pressure all the time, and it was staying okay.but the thing that put a final to me quitting is that the lady that signed me up died on my 5th day of taking it of an aneurysm. I don’t know if it was because she was taking thrive or not but she took it close to a year and it scares me to think that these stimulants that people put into their bodies to spike their energy to a super spike totally doesn’t seem like a good thing to me.

        • Chantelle Clark at 7:52 am

          You realize that aneurysms are caused either by obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, alcoholism, and copper deficiency among other things. Plus it also has hereditary associations to specific gene factors. It is highly unlikely that Thrive caused her to have an aneurysm, unless it completely spiked her cholesterol somehow.

          Just thought it was a little odd that you stopped on the premise of that. If you felt bad on it, then of course stop taking it, but don’t take it on account of believing something that can’t really be proven.

          I’ve been on Thrive for over a year and am completely healthy.

          • Angela at 12:04 pm

            I would like to hear from someone who takes Thrive and takes a blood pressure pill. Are you feeling okay?or do you take a half dose? My start wasn’t really good, but I might try it again if someone gave me a little confidence.

          • Angela at 12:18 pm

            Also, I also am sceptical about 1800mcgs of folic acid in a product when on the inernet web doctor it says that you shouldn’t exceed more than 1000mcgs because it could trigger a heart attack or stroke. Maybe the web doc is hogwash, but one doctor says one thing and another says another.

  18. cymry1988 at 3:21 am

    I started thrive today. Took 2 capsules this a.m. 40 minutes later, 1/4 of a thrive shake. Patch went on lap at am. I felt like I had horrible chest pressure, left arm pain, blurry vision, cough, raw esophagus and felt overall drained, felt a burst of diet pill type energy but felt so bad I didn’t feel like doing anything. Pulse went up to 120. Chest pain was pretty constant. Felt bad all day. Dizzy and all in. Do not take two capsules, take one. I was so hopeful and joined to sell this. I take lopressor for high pulse , but this was suppose to get me off meds. I wasn’t hungry, afraid of hidden stimulants in the ingredients. Anyone.else have chest pain and pressure?

    • Pauline at 11:54 pm

      I took it yesterday for the first time. My BP went up to 195/117. I had to go to the ER and was diagnosed with CAFFEINE INTOXICATION. It’s still high today just not as high. Never again will I use that product. I’ve never had high BP before this, always run 120’s/70’s. All day yesterday, I couldn’t think straight, extremely irritable, bad headache, anxious, pressure in my ears, rapid pulse and just felt plain crappy. I felt like I was going to have a stroke.

      • Debbie at 10:18 am

        I also experienced elevated blood pressure from the patch. Wasn’t sure if that’s what was causing me to feel dizzy and overall like I just needed to lay down for a bit. Used the pills, shake, and patch for about a week. Felt light-headed and checked my blood pressure, which was elevated. I usually have blood pressure in the normal range. So I stayed off all of the Thrive products about 3 days, felt completely normal again. Then, I started back yesterday and felt fine until a few hours after I had applied the patch. Blood pressure elevated again – 162/92 range. So, today I just used shake and pills and I feel normal again. I know something is going on with the patch and my body’s reaction to it. Also, my husband started the program at the same time and he only used it about 3 days and crashed physically and his body hurt worse than he has in years. He has fibromyalgia and was trying this for pain relief. He finally said no more of that and quit all of it. Now, his pain is reduced back to pre-Thrive levels. Not sure why it works for some and not for others. But, just be cautious and listen to your own body and side effects. Stop using if any negative reactions. It’s just not worth it.

      • Derek at 5:26 pm


        This one just shocks me. I’ve been wondering how I’d reply to your claims of caffeine intoxication (In Caps). There’s a few explanations here. 1. how much coffee or extra caffeine did you drink that day from other sources? 2.Do you have an allergy to caffeine? 3, Your blood pressure cuff is way off. 4. What competitor company are you promoting for? If that’s the case, just come out and tell us. 5. You are just making up a story to have an opinion in an attempt to seek attention.

        Thrive has a total of 65 mg of caffeine in all 3 products combined in the Thrive Experience for woman. And roughly 75 mg in the men’s products. 1 cup, 6-8 ounces, of coffee has between 80-90 mg of caffeine on average. So you’re telling all of us, you went to the hospital and were clinically diagnosed with Caffeine Intoxication on less caffeine than is what is found in 1 cup of coffee and it’s Thrive that did that to you? Do you see where this isn’t making any sense at all? Unless you’re telling me, you have an allergy to caffeine, I’m calling you out on this one. For the sake of argument, let’s assume you do have an allergy to caffeine. It’s still on you to read the label and see that the products do contain a form of caffeine. I love helping people and will gladly help anyone who asks for it, but this post is beyond help without much more explanation. These are the types of posts that are mission number 1 for me. People will believe stuff like this, because there is no knowledge base to pull from out here on the web. This is why if you want to investigate what Thrive is, go to a reputable LV Brand promoter to ask questions and dig into the product information.

    • Derek at 5:45 pm


      Whoa! Who told you Thrive would get you off your meds? Thrive is not a medicine, it will not cure and will not fix medical issues. Whoever gave you that advise needs a tongue lashing! Never plan on stopping a medicine without consulting a doctor first. Ever! If you were told that there is a chance you can come off those meds, I know the reason why. It has happened, but that isn’t the norm and isn’t something we would ever tell someone to expect.

      Always start with 1 capsule. Two can be too much for some people. Drink lots of water. I’ve seen this happen with some people and it’s a perceptual change that happens. Thrive is working on the mental clarity and focus. It can be a huge change and give you a weird feeling that you kind of just sense happening. It can be extreme for some people. If you’re working out, drink extra water as you have a boatload more nutrients coursing through your body. Getting even a bit dehydrated symptoms can become pronounced and can lead to this feeling. Your blood sugars could have gotten too low for whatever reason. If this happens or you feel this way again, try eating something. You may not feel hungry, but your body may be telling you it’s wants/needs food. Grab a piece of fruit or a yogurt. This could eliminate your sensation. Thrive is not a diet program. Weight loss happens for many as a result of getting better nutrition and increased energy. Again, we are not a diet plan.

  19. My friend is a promoter for this and has been ACTIVELY telling everyone she can about it non-stop! I am not a fan of MLM, but I agreed to be a customer and “try” it. I am overall very healthy, but the reviews were just over the top so I thought sure I’ll try.

    Now of course this obviously has some great effect on other people, however as I type this my hands are shaking, my pulse is racing, I have anxiety, my chest and throat are tight, and I generally feel like crap. I have been on it for a about a week trying different times/measurements and I still feel horrible. I can’t wait for tomorrow, hopefully I’ll be back to myself.

    I do not like that if you post an honest review on their FB page…if it’s not favorable they delete it…that’s not fair and almost deceitful. Hopefully someone looking for an honest review will at least see this.

    • Hi Marie,

      Thank you for your honest review of this product. I have heard a lot of people with similar results. Its understandable that the company would censor bad reviews out of their Facebook page. They control the page, so they get to control the content.

      That’s why a place like HONEST MLM REVIEWS is so important. it allows you the freedom to say what your experience was either good or bad.

      • Louise at 5:20 pm

        I started Thrive this morning. Took 2 pills then the shake a little later.Patchon within half an hour I took patch off light headed and like I had just taken a bunch of diet pills. I asked on Le-vel facebook page if I was able to just do Shake and the boost for extra energy. However they deleted my post..lol..You would think after spending $433 Canadian on their product they would at least answer…Has anyone else tried just the shake and Boost with no patch or pills. I am looking for a little extra energy and maybe help with some weight loss.

        • Melisa at 1:59 pm

          I feel the same way Louise. They told me im going through a detox. I love the clarity of mind it gives me but the shakes are really stressing me out I feel like im on a red bull drip. I don’t need to loss weight they told me its not a diet patch but im reading and a lot of people are saying stuff about weight loss. I wondering if I can cut the dose in half (one pill, half shake, half patch) maybe? I had to take the patch off and im still shaking. I hope I can sleep tonight!!!

          • Derek at 4:50 pm


            Absolutely cut your capsules down to 1. This is the level I tell all my people to start at. If you are drinking extra caffeine at times throughout your day, please stop. This will also cause some of the symptoms you are talking about. Detoxing can make you feel itchy as it pushes toxins out of your skin pores. It should go away within 2 weeks. Drink lots of water and it will help smooth the detox over. Your team representative should have told you this, if you reached out to him/her. Hope this helps.

        • Derek at 4:54 pm

          Start with 1 capsule, 2 sounds like it’s too much for you. The Facebook Fan Page is not customer service. For issues such as this, you reach out to your team representative that enrolled you. It’s their job to help walk you through how to solve the issues you’ve stated. If you’re just starting, don’t add in the Boost yet. Get your core products figured out first. 1 capsule, 1/2-1 Lifestyle mix and 1 regular DFT. Drink plenty of water all day, no other caffeinated drinks. This should help. If worse comes to worse, yes you can just use the Lifestyle Mix and DFT. Hope this helps clear things up

    • Derek at 5:01 pm

      How much water are you drinking? 1/2 your body weight in ounces? Times should never vary. First 40 minutes of your day, all steps should be done. I’m unclear on measurements?

      I’ve said it several times in other responses on this page. Everyone should start with 1 capsule, 1/2-1 full lifestyle mix and 1 regular DFT. From there we can eliminate one thing per day if it’s too much for you. This does sound like a bit of detoxing, but it also sounds like your times and dosage is off. If you are not following the directions specifically start there. If you are, then eliminate your capsule tomorrow and go with the LS Mix and DFT. Drink lots of water! See how that works for you. Remember empty stomach! No extra caffeine, which means no sodas, coffees, energy drinks as you’ll have HIGH absorption rates which can cause these symptoms.

  20. GLO at 9:47 am

    I really love the product, b4 it I had no energy or motivation to get up and do anything. But on it I have way more energy and get so much done in the day. I suffer will severer anxciety so I was not sure about it because I have tried just about everything from shakes to pills and they all gave me anxciety jitter ugly feeling. But not this one . The only thing I am having trouble with is falling asleep at night. I tried taking it very early but still it’s hard. . I don’t want to stop taking but might have to if I can’t get my sleep under control. Did this happen to anyone else? Can u give advice please!

  21. Ebaker at 9:58 pm

    I went to the doctor today and had really high blood pressure. Also suffering from blurred vision, anxiety, depression, and itching. Been taking Thrive for nearly 2 months….evidently my body can’t take the vitamin mineral mixture. I have never felt so awful, even though it does give me a high energy level and curbs my appetite. My doctor took me off of it, and hopefully after a few days I will be back to normal. I didn’t like my Thrive experience

  22. I have been using Thrive for two months and love it. Anton I love your comment to that guy that was bashing MLM and calling us suckers. Great comeback and attitude. I actually saved your response and am going to use it for nay sayers I come in contact with. I heard Vemma is excellent too. Have a great day.

    • Hi Dave, thanks for coming around. I am glad you are having good success with Thrive. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know

  23. NK Dansby at 1:35 pm

    Does the product contain shellfish in any ingredient?

    • Belinda at 7:54 am

      yes the pills contains shellfish, I cut back to 1 pill to see if that helps on side effects, if it doesn’t I might have to quit taking it altogether

      • Hey Belinda, You could also try Vemma for an alternative that has much less chance of having side affects. If this works for you then by all means keep using it. For those that it isnt working for there is no harm in trying something else.

  24. Terry at 1:55 am

    Am wondering if anyone else is itching from the patch?

    • Terry at 1:20 pm

      The capsules contain shellfish. Very dangerous if promoters aren’t telling this to potential buyers when selling this product.
      Yes, the patch not only made me itch constantly, but it also broke me out.

      • Kelly at 7:47 pm

        I have been on Thrive for 4 weeks now! But, for the past 2 weeks I have been sick! I thought, I had a sinus infection, but, I have finally realized, I am having an allergic reaction to the shellfish in the capsule!!! THIS IS HORRIBLE!!

        • Kelly at 7:52 pm

          My mouth and tongue are numb and my eyelids are swollen! Why didn’t anyone tell me that the capsule was made of shellfish??? I will no longer promote this product!

          • Sarah at 1:25 pm

            It says on the packet, “Contains: Shellfish.”

        • Don at 8:12 pm

          I’n astonished by the number of people who are clearly trying to smear the name of this company and the product. It’s almost humorous. I guess people don’t realize that you can be sued for slander. Anyways, here goes: I have a friend that is HIGHLY allergic to shellfish. He uses Thrive on a daily basis and LOVES it. The company is required to put a disclaimer on the capsules because of possible cross contamination in the factory. If you’re allergic to shellfish, you should read labels on everything you take. I’m allergic to aspirin, I don’t just go buy any old thing over the counter and swallow it down without reading the label first… And I never expect the pharmacist to ask me if I’m allergic to ____…

        • Derek at 4:39 pm

          There is shellfish in Thrive. It is clearly labeled as such. Shellfish allergies are weird. I don’t mean this disrespectful at all. I’ve had people deathly allergic to shellfish try the products with no bad affects at all and I’ve had people have a reaction similar to yours. But they all knew it was risk before they started, because they asked me about it. People are allergic to different parts of the selfish and I’m sorry, but off the top of my head, I can’t remember which part is in Thrive and is the likely culprit to your symptoms. This is a case of looking things over on the website everyone is given. I’m guessing you didn’t read it or just missed it.

      • Derek at 4:44 pm

        All people who know they have an allergy should be looking all products over before they consume them as well. If a person alerts me to their allergy to shellfish, I will absolutely tell them Thrive does contain it. I’ll also tell them that some people react to it and others don’t. It’s because people are allergic to different parts of the shellfish. As promoters we can’t ask every single person if they are allergic to every single possible component in Thrive. If you have allergies to something, read the label, do the research on the website. you were given when you created your account. It’s all there for you to look at.

    • Brooke at 12:09 pm

      Been taking Thrive now for 8 days the past 2 days i am itching all over my body. Is the normal?

      • Anton English at 1:48 pm

        It could be a number of things causing this. A closer look at the ingredients may reveal you have an allergic reaction to something in there? Or its coincidence and you happened to start using a different laundry soap at the same time but didn’t make the connection?

      • Derek at 4:31 pm


        No your results are not normal. It could be a very subtle detox happening and your body is pushing toxins out through the pores of your skin. If that is the case, the symptoms should go away or by greatly minimized within 2 weeks. If not, you may be having an allergic reaction to something. To test this, eliminate the DFT 1 day and see if it helps. (Could be the adhesive used?) Next day, use DFT but eliminate Lifestyle Mix or cut down to 1/2 full amount. Next capsules while using other two. Usually we can narrow down any issue quickly, especially if it’s a detox or light allergy. Hope this helps!

  25. david at 7:00 pm

    Tried it today with good results, but am concerned about long term effects. Anton, are you a Vemma promoter?

    • Hi David,

      I prefer Vemma Products over the other guys. But unlike most people you will meet I realize that Vemma isnt for everyone. If someone wanted to give Vemma a try I am happy to help them out. But I am also happy to connect up people to the opportunity that they feel fits who they are.

      Let me know if you have any questions.

  26. Johny P at 10:06 pm

    For all of those who claim that Thrive is a scam or a scheme, the November 2014 edition of Success magazine from Home will be featuring Le-Vel (the company that produces Thrive) in a cover to cover spread. I’m going to go out of a limb and assume that a well respected business magazine is more in the know about a legitimate business than you are! Not only is the business legitimate, it is experiencing record growth (4300% in the last year).

    Those are facts not opinions.

    • Hey Johny, Thank you for posting. Ill keep an eye out for the article.

      I can tell you that the company has gone from very obscure to frequently being the #1 hit on my website for the last year. It must be growing. Growth doesnt always mean its good. However there are a lot of people giving it a shot, and with that you will get a certain percentage of “haters”. If you are in it, then keep going. If not then see if you feel its right for you.

    Hi! I am new to Thrive and I have been taking it now for 4 days. I have enjoyed the energy that it gives me. I did start out with both capsules in the morning and felt like I a car that is being revved up before a race. I have changed to one capsule in the morning and one in the afternoon. It seems to even out the energy better for me and I feel great and even after a long day at work I am still able to sleep. I did have some pain in my arm while wearing the patch, but I have also been under a lot of additional stress as well. I took a break from wearing the patch and I feel better. Just like anything we consume whether it is supplements or foods each person has a different reaction. I have insomnia when I take Nyquil, I have added leg cramps when I eat bananas. Every person is different, we are all unique in creation. Each person has higher levels of certain vitamins and minerals than others the same goes with allergies in foods. Understand that the foods that we buy from the store are NOT giving the proper nutrients that we should be getting, the soil is depleted of the vitamins and minerals that would make us all healthy. This is most common here in the US, we have processed foods like crazy which is indeed making america ill and suffering from many diseases. In a nut shell, I am loving the Thrive experience and it is selling itself. This is a life change for people who want to change it. I personally like the fact that there is very little products to choose from. Keep it simple is the key for me. I feel better, I want to eat healthier and I have the energy that I need. I have a lower back issue and I feel better, but I also know that because my back issue is caused from deteariation of the disks this is not going to reverse that, but if it helps ease the pain some it’s worth not being on pain killers. I am looking forward to the continued journey with THRIVE and share my experience.

    Have a great and joyful day!!

    • Hi Heather,

      Thank you for your excitement. Try to use paragraphs when you are typing this much information. It helps the readers understand your thoughts

    I have been on Thrive for one week now – The first day was amazing and I loved the energy I had without the crash of an energy drink. The next day I still felt the energy but I noticed I was aggressive, angry, short tempered. By day 3 I was raging at my kids!! Day 4 same thing – I was not getting any better sleep, I was not waking up refreshed. I cut my dose in half and the past 2 days have been better emotionally but I don’t feel like Im on thrive except for the bloating and gas – I am questioning if Thrive might be cancelling out my anti-anxitey medications. Anyone else have this happen?

    • Derek at 4:24 pm


      If you are on medication of any kind, discuss things with your doctor. I have a lot of knowledge regarding Thrive, but I won’t go near any medical/medicine related questions.

      I hope you cut the capsules down to 1. I would even tell you to cut the Lifestyle Mix and possibly even the DFT in half also. Start small, get to a point where there is minimal effect of Thrive presenting itself and then slowly increase one step at a time, with the second capsule being the last step to increase. It’s the only way to know where the trigger for your symptom is.

      I’m trusting you are following the instructions on how and when to take the products. If you take them too late in the day, good rest can be an issue, just because you have too much energy. All steps should be completed within first 40 minutes of your day. Not getting good sleep, creates the environment for short tempers, etc.

      Bloating is your gut/digestive track getting itself in order. It’s not uncommon for some people to have this reaction. It’s the bodies process of solving an imbalance, righting the ship and getting things in order. Balance (a cleanse) may speed up that process for you. Keep drinking water also. Stay away from sugary foods and drinks, as yeast feast on the sugars and it makes the symptoms worse. Hope this helps.

    Is it safe while breastfeeding?

    • Joy, I guess it depends on your definition of safe. I’m not a doctor, but a doctor who promotes Thrive, recommended that pregnant/breastfeeding women not take the capsules or use the DFT patch. While many women put much worse things in their body during pregnancy and breastfeeding, there is white willow bark and some caffeine in the Thrive capsules & patch. I’d love to help you get a sample, once you get past breastfeeding.. but until then, I’d defer to the expert’s advice.

    • Riley at 2:01 pm

      No this isn’t say while pregnant or breastfeeding! Do not make your child suffer because someone is trying to make a quick buck off of you.

      • Don Brown at 6:54 pm

        I don’t recommend caffeine of any kind while pregnant or breastfeeding. So I agree with you, I was just sharing what our Dr. said… which in the end is a “not recommended”.. He just elaborated more than with just a solid no. Thrive does have green coffee bean extract and white willow bark… so I wouldn’t let my wife take it while pregnant or breastfeeding, so that’s the advice I give.

    • Derek at 4:04 pm

      This is something to address with your doctor. Some doctors have no problem with it, others recommend not using anything other than regular prenatal vitamins. One doctor I’ve talked with about this subject told me that some parts of the Thrive Experience are not exactly what is considered ideal for pregnant mothers and babies. However, he also stated that mothers consume other products that are far worse for them and babies such as sodas and other highly caffeinated beverages as an example. Even though I’ve had new mothers stay with Thrive through their whole pregnancy and breast feeding stage, I’m going to default to my first sentence. Talk about it with your doctor and then make the best decision for you and your child.

  30. I tried Thrive. Took 1 capsule in the AM, shake & patch. A few hours later I noticed a soreness in my arm with the patch on. Similar to when you get a shot in the arm & you have that dull achy soreness. But also I wouldn’t say my vision was blurred but I just felt foggy. Idk…I just quit 1/2 through the day…just didn’t make me feel right.

  31. Unsure of product at 9:04 am

    I started Thrive 5 days ago. As of today, I am still drinking coffee and am sitting on the couch with no energy. I drank the shake the first day and 3 hours later was in bed with a bad migraine. The soy in the product did that to me. I contacted Thrive support and asked how much soy there was and they said they could not tell me that since they were not FDA approved..WHAT??? I am going to continue with the vitamins and patch for a little longer, as they did say it can take longer for some people to feel the “effects”. If you suffer from Migraines, DO NOT drink the shake, you will get a migraine! as each day goes by, I am feeling that my vitamins were doing just fine for me.

    • Chantelle Clark at 1:55 pm

      Perhaps you should have read the ingredients closer than. It tells you right on the nutrition packet that there is soy and shellfish in the products.

      On another note (not as a reply to the person above), I have been taking Thrive for over a year, and it helped me greatly with eating properly, exercising, drinking water. It actually did make me feel a lot better because of the natural nutrients in the products. Since starting it, I have lost 23 pounds and feel amazing. I can go off of it without a problem, and go back on without a problem. No side effects here. For those who have side effects when going off of it, are probably not eating correctly or exercising appropriately and thus feel like crap.

      As for those who may have allergies or sensitive bodies, it is highly suggested that you take caution when trying out new things, such as the patch and so on. You need to make sure you know your own body before plugging it with stuff. If you don’t know your own body and you have a negative experience, you’re more likely to call something a scam.

      Thrive by Le-Vel is not a scam at all, it’s a company that offers a product line and provides you with commissions if you sell it, just like any other third party store. That shoe store in the mall gets a cut from the brand that they are selling, every time they make a sale. So make sure you understand what a scam is first, before making judgement calls.

      • Anton English at 8:26 am


        I find people throw the word scam out for things they dont understand. Its not an informed conclusion they have come to, its a knee jerk response to something that is different and scary. This allows them to be justified as they walk away from something that could change their life.

        I laugh when I hear it because we know the scam that corporate America is running. This seems like a much better option

    • Don at 8:28 pm

      Welp here goes another one: Thrive does clearly state that there is soy in the product. They do not disclose the amount of the ingredients in their proprietary blend, nor are they required to, by the FDA. In fact NO supplement you buy is FDA approved. WHAT??? Yep, not one of them.

      Now, regarding the migraines. My sister and a good friend of mine have both lived with migraines, almost daily. Since Thrive, they have actually had less migraines than ever… My sister was literally in tears of joy while thanking me for introducing her to Thrive. They both have better results than any synthetic product they have ever taken.

      Soy content: the soy equates to less than 1/2 of 1% of the product. You know this because Europe requires disclosure of the amount of everything used in all supplement products. Soy is listed as 0% and is approved in Europe. It is strictly in the product to help with the absorbsion of the pea protein. I’m sorry you’re having migraines, but I find it highly unlikely that it would be because of the minute amount of soy in this product.

      • Wendy at 4:49 pm

        I took Thrive for about 2 months, but had to stop because it was actually triggering migraines for me. I have had migraines for several years and was actually not having them as frequent until I started taking the Thrive. So I am done! I’m not sure if anyone else had problems with the boost, but it made me terribly sick to my stomach.

      • Lisa at 9:32 am

        Hi, Can you please tell me where you can find that soy is listed at 0-1/2% in Europe? I’m confused because it is the first listed source of protein here in the US. I have hormonal issues with soy. I’m on this product and generally love it, but there are a few things that concern me. I contacted the company, and they won’t tell me. But if it’s available online in Europe and I just can’t find that info, I’d love it if you could help me! Thanks.

    • Christy at 10:47 am

      My friend who promotes Thrive by LeVel let me try a 5 day supply. I didn’t follow the steps closely, but I did notice an increase in energy. I drank the shake all 5 days… I never once got a headache, much less a migraine.

    • I have suffered from chronic debilitating migraines for 10 plus years. I have been on so many different medications. I take the shake and it hasn’t one given me a migraine. Maybe its something else or it is an individual result. I do believe everyone has different results .

    • Derek at 3:52 pm


      I’m sorry you didn’t get he results you were looking for as quickly as you hoped. Thrive is not a miracle product that will work quickly in all people. Did you contact your team representative about your issue? I can tell you right now, what your most likely issue was. Your continued use of coffee. You were absorbing much higher doses of the caffeine because of the Lifestyle Mix and capsules. Basically you self sabotaged what Thrive can do, by the use of extra caffeine. Many times extra caffeine will cancel out the Thrive, reverse its affects, give people that shaky/jittery feeling. I’m very confident you got headaches from the caffeine in the coffee. You should have been replacing the coffee with water, which may also would have solved the issue you had. Caffeine dehydrates the body and this may be the cause of your headache, especially with the higher absorption rates that happen. Drink water, stay hydrated, do your best to eliminate caffeine and stimulants and chances are you don’t have a headache. I’m confident that’ll if given the time required you’ll start getting the results you were hoping for. The Thrive Experience may not happen in 1 day, 1 week or even 1 month. Every person is different. I hope you reached out, gave it more time and discovered this easy possible solution.

  32. Brenda Ahlers at 1:12 pm

    Thank you SO much for the info presented here. Have been considering alot of this and in doing research I found this site. I am bookmarking it for future reference. Thanx again ! If I decide between Thrive and Vemma, I’ll let you know the results.

    • Anton English at 6:58 pm

      Hi Brenda,

      Let me know if you have any questions about either.

  33. Can you drink coffee while taking Thrive?

    • Don Brown at 7:38 am

      You can continue to drink coffee… However, you should wait an hour or so after taking Thrive before eating or drinking coffee… You should be aware that coffee is often the catalyst that gives people the “jittery” feelings. With all the pre/probiotics in the shake, absorbsion is higher. Ultimately, a full dose of Thrive contains less caffeine than the average coffee, less than 70mg.

    • Chantelle Clark at 10:06 am

      Yes CarolQ, you can drink Coffee with Thrive. All Thrive is, is premium nutrients and vitamins that fill in the gaps in your nutrition that you miss out on each day.

    • Derek at 3:34 pm


      Yes you can continue to drink coffee if you choose. But do so knowing that you may be self sabotaging your Thrive Experience. Introducing stimulants into your system while taking Thrive MAY have adverse side affects. 1. You will feel jittery or get that caffeine high/shake from more caffeine being absorbed into your body. 2. You may also crash and become very tired or lethargic. You cancel out the energy you get from Thrive. 3. You may not get the full benefits from Thrive you otherwise could. Your experience could be very slow in coming and may result in very little being noticed by the user. Thrive and caffeine may simply cancel each other out.

      I crash within 30 minutes if I drink caffeinated drinks. Especially sodas. I was a pot to pot and half of coffee guy every morning for 20-25 years. After starting Thrive, I would make a full pot and drink 1/2 a cup and not even realize it until it was cold. I just didn’t need the jump start in the morning anymore. So, if you’re worried about not having your coffee for your morning jump start, I wouldn’t worry about it at all. It may take a few days to start noticing it, but I fully believe it will happen for you.

  34. Diana Cavender at 9:59 am

    For $3 buy a used Dukan Diet book. Lost 30 pounds in 3 months. That was 2 years ago. Never felt better. Easy and makes sense.

    • Derek at 11:57 am

      That’s awesome Diana! Congratulations on your success!

      I would like to point out however that Thrive is not a diet/weight loss product. It’s a health and wellness product, that does have the added perk of weight loss for many. This is a very common misconception about Thrive. It’s understandable why people think that’s what it is, because many sites out here on the web claim it to be such. People also automatically assume a health and wellness product means fancy labeling for diet program. That is not the case here.

      Again, congratulations on your success with weight loss!

  35. I tried Thrive and I can say for myself it does work. I didn’t get jittery and yes I did feel different shortly after taking the pills and applying the patch. I took it for 3 days and felt great but I stopped after because I only had samples. The time I stopped I did noticed my body felt tired and drained but that’s I normally felt without Thrive. I don’t think it’s addicting but it’s would be like taking medication. For example you take BP meds to control your BP and when you stop you BP is out of whack not because your addicted to it but because your body needs a little extra help. When you take pain meds your not in pain but when you don’t your in pain. I will continue using Thrive not because I’m lazy and don’t know how to eat right or don’t want to exercise. I chose to continue because I do have more energy with Thrive and I’m a mother of 3 active children I work full time and I’m a full time student, sometimes it’s hard to eat right and stay active when your constantly on the go. Before Thrive I would get home from work and just want to sleep and I would have to force myself to start cooking, helping kids, with home work, laundry, and etc. because a mothers job is never ending. Now with Thrive I don’t feel so sluggish and I’m not exhausted. That is how Thrive has worked for me now everyone’s body is different.

  36. Jack Krane at 3:29 am

  38. Reanna at 7:04 am

    Hey everyone, I just started using Thrive & had a question I was hoping someone may have an answer to.. I have battled addiction for many years & now have 7 months clean & sober. Because of mistakes I have made during my use I have to take random uas several times a week. I love this product, it makes me feel great ! My concern is.. could this product potentially flush my system to where I get a low creatine reading when the test comes back? I wonder because energy drinks have this effect on the body, &as far as the people who test me are concerned – a ua with low creatine is equivalent to a dirty ua as it is typically a sign of an attempt to flush your system. unfortunately, my 2 yr old daughter is at stake here – so there is no room for error in my case. I want to continue using this product, & have many friends in recovery I would like to share it with as well! But many of them have similar situations.. any answers ?

    • Anton English at 9:32 am

      Reanna, No matter what anyone says for advice on this I would consult your Dr or at least “A” Dr. Have them review the ingredients and see if the right triggers are there to produce the effects you speak of.

      Your biggest challenge will be finding a Dr willing to actually take the time to look into it. Most of them will just say not to use it as it is the safest way. If anyone says its OK to use this and it wont affect your test results its simply them not understanding the gravity of your condition.

    • Derek at 12:17 pm


      Thrive is not addictive in a chemical sense, because it’s nutrition. But there are many forms of addiction and I’m not qualified to speak on your case. I do have several recovering alcoholics and a couple from drug abuse on my team. They have had no side affects, addiction or testing issues with Thrives use. But they are not you. If you are interested and need this question answered more fully, bring a print out of what is in Thrive to whoever is doing your testing and/or a doctor and have them check it over. Have them reach out to someone involved with the products as part of their research, if required. Thrive is nutrition and will not affect drug tests in any way. 60-75 mg of caffeine total, which is less than the average cup of coffee. As always, if there is ever a doubt regarding your health, seek out a doctor.

      Anton is correct in saying that many doctors don’t take the time to look into what we ask them to. They aren’t going to take the time to look it up basically. They’ll simply rely on their past knowledge to give you a quick answer. Having the print out with you and asking them “Look at this and tell me if there is any reason why I can’t take it” is a better approach. It forces them to actually look. That look should be longer than 10 seconds, like my wife’s doctor did to her.

  39. Stacy at 9:10 am

    I’m new to Thrive…..can someone tell me if I have to stop drinking coffee?

    • Lisa at 3:54 pm

      You certainly don’t have to, but I find I ultimately feel better and get more effects from Thrive when I do. My recommendation would be to do your best in cutting it out. I found that it was easier than I expected.

  40. I took Thrive for a month. I took the product correctly as instructed.
    I started to feel constantly nauseous on day 1. I couldn’t eat anything. I was encouraged to keep on taking it so I did.
    During the third week of taking Thrive my feelings of anxiety (which were fine before) got so bad that I got signed off work with stress. I woke up crying in the mornings – I felt so low. I’m in recovery so I really could have done without it all. I feel like I’ve gone backwards by several steps.
    Now I am ‘clean’ of Thrive. I am working on myself to re-gain balance.
    I feel let down because I advised my rep and he didn’t seem overly concerned by the dramatic affect Thrive has had on my psyche.
    I also feel let down that I haven’t been offered a refund.
    It’s really put me off MLM as before I believed they had a good philosophy. I’m sure a mainstream firm would have been forced to open an investigation if their products impacted their consumers’ lives like it has mine.

    • Derek at 3:10 pm


      I’m sorry you went through what you did! I’m sorry that you’re contact person acted the way he did! It’s people like him, that make us all look horribly bad. As in all areas of life, we have good people and we have bad people. Caring people and self centered people. Your contact should have put you in contact with someone to help you out. I’m pretty sure your symptoms could have been fixed with a few common adjustments he should have walked you through. As in all areas of life, there are good people and not so good people. The less good shouldn’t be given to the power to speak for us all.

      I think this is a good example of doing your research on who you’re registering with, regardless of the opportunity your looking at. It’s something a lot of people don’t think about, because they think they are just going to do the system on their own. Some people try to promote and then drop out due to bad work ethic, which stops communication. Others do not help customers or other team members and some are just out for the perks, instead of the people. It’s unfortunate, but it’s in every business on the planet. Talk with the person before you register with them, ask them questions, look into their Facebook page or social media pages, etc. Don’t get suckered in by flashy ads and big talk. A phone call can usually weed these people out.

  41. Sarah at 3:11 pm

    I’ve been on Thrive daily for 9 weeks now. Fortunately, my consultant recommended I start out on 1 pill, half shake & half patch for the first several days, and I actually kept it at half doses for 3+ weeks before increasing to a full dose over a few days period. I did feel an almost jittery energy at first, similar to a diet pill. But I feel like that was because I had zero energy to start with! I did start feeling energy & a decrease in appetite on day one, and that has continued. I’ve been dealing with fibromyalgia for about 2 years, and was ready to try anything to feel better….and after 4 or 5 days I told my husband, “I actually feel GOOD for the first time in many months!” It has helped me tremendously with the fatigue, and I’ve even been able to enjoy some social time with friends after a day of work….that’s a pretty big deal for me.
    A few weeks into my Thrive Experience, I was rear-ended and my car was totaled. This aggravated a previous neck injury, and has put me back into a fibro-flare up. Before the wreck, I had cut down on my pain meds and was waking each day with considerably less back & shoulder pain. Since the accident, I have again been dealing with more pain, but I feel like the Thrive is really helping to keep me moving. I’ve lost about 12lbs without adding exercise, and the decrease in appetite has really helped me be much more aware and intentional with the foods I’m putting in my body.
    I’m not sure how long I can/should stay on it, but I’m about to start decreasing to half doses again to save some money…as well as to avoid a ‘crash’ from just stopping it all at once. I know all bodies are different, and this works for some & not others, but I wanted to post about the product because I feel like it has been a positive experience for me.

    • Lisa at 6:31 am

      I often just take one pill with great benefit. If I have a very busy day ahead of me, I’ll take two. I mix it up. I do the same with the other products too. Thanks for your story. A friend of mine with fibro recently started on just the patch with great results.

  42. Amber at 11:00 am

    If you are interested in a free sample of Thrive fill out the form under “customer” from the link above. (no credit card required) I have 10 samples. http://thrive4life120.le-vel.com

  43. I was a non believer but at this point what did I have to lose. I tried it. I cant explain the way I feel. Someone above said “lighter”..and it fits. Almost like a fog has lifted. I did not want to commit to a month and then it fail like everything else so I went to e bay abd bought the trial pack . On day 1 I used the tablets, the shake and the patch. Within an hour I felt somewhat” lighter” but thought it could just be a good day or all in my mind. Day 2 I took the tablets and used the patch and didn’t give it a second thought. That evening my mother commented on how great of a mood I had been in the last couple days and ask if I had met someone new. I laughed and said it must be the “thrive”..I hadn’t even thought about it but I had had a really good day…and I don’t know why. Day 3 Tablets, shake and patch….ordered the month supply. Hated the thought of running out. I don’t need the box full of vitamins I was taking daily. My skin seems somewhat healthier, my hair seems like its healthier too. I am able to keep moving all day long and I don’t need coffee. I researched this and researched this and I have been unable to find any negatives. The ingredients are all natural. It seems to just be the way in which they use those ingredients. I was a skeptic. I don’t sell it but I will never stop using it. It saved my life. Seems drastic but I really needed something good in my life…Thrive works for me and even if it got 90 negative reviews I wouldn’t stop using it. I am thinking that most of the negative reviews are from people looking for a high or drastic over night results.Or just miserable people that cant be pleased no matter what. I was a skeptic and now I am 100% on board. My only concern is with all the people who love this product now they will run short of supply or they will raise the prices. :>/

  44. Angie at 8:08 am

    The capsules say they contain shellfish. I have a gal that is allergic and concerned as her reactions are life threatening. Can anyone help with this? Is there anyone who has the same allergy who is taking thrive?

    • Derek at 9:38 am


      It’s hard to say if the shellfish found in Thrive will have a impact on your friend. I have 4 people who are deathly allergic to shellfish and have no problems whatsoever with the Thrive products. It’s because people are allergic to different parts of selfish. Some are allergic to the iodine, while others are allergic to the shellfish itself. There is no way of knowing what her reaction will be unless she tries it. No one from Le-Vel or that represents Le-Vel should attempt to make that decision for her. That’s a personal decision she will have to make. My people all wanted to try & all had an epinephrine pen on standby. So far (knock on wood) I’ve not had anybody react negatively, but it is possible. Hope that helps.

  45. Derek at 2:05 pm

    I’ve been with Le-Vel as both a customer and later as a promoter for 22 months. I think I have a bit of knowledge and experience to share with anyone who has questions or concerns. I’ve read through many (but not all) of the above posts. There has been a large amount of opinions shared on both sides the aisle. People that have positive experiences, some with negative experiences and some with no experience. Positive comments, negative comments and scam comments (which goes into a whole other category)

    Let’s cover a common concern. Price. In 22 months, I’ve paid for one month/my first month of product. I paid roughly $190 for that first month. The only thing I’ve paid for since is shipping, which goes to FedEx, not Le-Vel. So I’ve paid an average of $8.63 a month for the Thrive products to end up on my doorstep. And that amount gets lower every month because of more time. You do know that you can get your products for near free, right. (shipping of $12-15) I hope that was explained to you in the beginning! If you’ve been having a great experience with the products, why would you not share your experience with others you care about? That’s what I did and that’s what they did. A few earned their product for free without spending anything, because they decided to share the Thrive Experience before they even ordered. Now we all get our products for free. For those that don’t know, here’s how it works. If you get 2 people to enroll as customers & they place an auto-ship order, you get the average of their two orders placed into your account as product credits to use the following month. Examples: Your two customers each place an order of $150, you get $150 placed into your account to use towards your own products. If one places a $150 order, the other places a $190 order, you will receive $170 into your account. If you have two customers who order the couples pack, which is $300 (2-$150 packs) you will have $300 placed into your account. It’s not that hard to get 2 people who want what you have. It doesn’t matter if you’re a customer or promoter, everyone has this option to earn free products.

    A few very common reasons for “detoxing”. Detoxing is real. I’ve had people that have gone through it for up to two weeks and I know it’s no fun. Now why does that occur? An imbalance in a person gut is usually the biggest reason. High yeast levels may take some time to balance out with good probiotics your digestive system needs to operate efficiently. The bloating is usually caused by high levels of yeast in your gut. It’s not a quick a fix to get these levels in order. But once you do get them in check, your entire system runs more effectively. Another main reason for detoxing is a build up of sludge on the walls of your digestive track. A build up on the walls, slows absorption of your nutrients. Medical studies have proven that such a build up can occur and may be responsible for up two 15 pounds of weight. This is especially common in woman who suffer from digestive issues, such as constipation. Detoxing is the bodies process of getting rid of that sludge and the reason why you are in the bathroom, have stomach cramps, a nauseating feeling and sweats. It goes away once your gut and digestive track is put into balance again. It’s worse in some people that others. But that’s to be expected as we are not all alike. I’m actually always happy when a person is detoxing. It means the products are doing what they are meant to do and when it’s over that person will have dramatic results. Some people can deal with it and push through. Some can’t and give up. That’s their choice to make, but I always try and encourage them to stick with it. (As an after thought edit – most of the time, if detoxing does not go away on it’s own within 2 weeks, it’s because a person is consuming something that is causing it. It may be caffeinated drinks, fast food, greasy foods etc. It may take some research as to why it continues, but we can usually find the reason and solve it. But that takes communication with people in Le-Vel who are willing to help you)

    A fault stated in the article is that Thrive is available on Amazon. It is not. At least it is not supposed to be. People selling Thrive on Amazon, EBay, Craigslist, etc. is breaking company policy. The person(s) will be sought out, possibly prosecuted legally, banned from all business associated with Le-Vel and will not be able to supply you with your products going forward. These are your scammers, so stay away. One of my current customers came to me after buying from Amazon. She found that she received opened/used DFT (the patch) in her order. Some moron used them, stuck them back onto the film they came from, repackaged them and then resold them. People selling on Amazon are not reputable people, who will not help you if you have questions. They know what they are doing is against company policy and don’t care. If they can’t follow the rules, how can you trust them? So buyer beware! If you want to do it right, go to a knowledgeable Le-Vel promoter. Do your research with whoever you sign up with. Which means talk to them. Check out the Facebook page, etc. There are good promoters and there are bad ones. Just like there are good people and bad ones. One type can’t speak for all. This part of the journey is on you.

    Scam claimers – I don’t know what’s worse, people who make up wild claims about what Thrive is and what it does, or people who just show up and yell scam without any knowledge of or experience with the products or the company. Both are liars, just of different makings. It’s pointless arguing with them, so why bother. Here’s my question to you however. Why are negative remarks and reviews automatically given the truth or credible label? How do you really know if the person took the products? You don’t. How do you know the person took the products correctly? You don’t. How do you know the person isn’t affiliated with another company who is direct competition with Le-Vel? You don’t. There are a lot of people in this world that can’t say a positive thing about anything. So please, keep those thoughts in mind as you investigate.

    The people who are claiming high levels of caffeine in Thrive, also have no idea what they are talking about. Less than or equal to 1 cup (6-8 ounces) of coffee. This is another example of passed on Google research, instead of facts. You get the energy burst from the pharmaceutical grade components in Thrive, that are filling in your nutritional gaps you have. Fill the gaps, absorb more nutrition, giving the body what it needs and now you have more energy, recover faster, sleep better, think better, are more awake and alert and are just happier. That is not stimulants. I don’t care how green and healthy you think you eat, you have the gaps. They may not be as large, but you have them. Also notice I said pharmaceutical grade ingredients. Most daily supplements are not of this quality and purity. Most supplements sold in stores are cosmetic grade. Cosmetic grade (also known as “nutritional grade” is two full levels of quality and purity lower then what is found in Thrive. Cosmetic grade supplements are typically synthetic, not well absorbed, of questionable quality and purity, not precise in actual ingredients and is one level above feed/agricultural grade fed to livestock. This is why you can’t just go to the store and recreate Thrive on your own and why you don’t “feel” anything when using regular store purchased supplements. Even if you somehow mixed the components perfectly, from store purchased supplements, the effectiveness would not even be close, just due to the quality of the components used. This is also something most people leave out of the arguments. Levels of supplement quality are this. Highest to lowest – Pharmaceutical, medical, cosmetic and feed/agricultural.

    I’ve been doing this for a long time. To this day, I can not tell you what your Thrive Experience will be. It could be any number of things. More energy, sustained energy, less aches and discomforts, better sleep, weight loss, mental focus and clarity, better digestion support, lean muscle support, a renewed sense of excitement towards life. Some people get only one of those things. Others get the whole package or some combination of them. There is no way to know. Everybody is different. We have different bodies, different metabolism levels, different overall fitness levels, diets, jobs, stresses, eating habits, weights, medical issues, aches, lifestyles, etc. You can’t look at a successful person’s story or an unsuccessful person’s story and know what you are going to experience. It’s impossible. The only way to know, is to try and see what happens.

    I’ll stop here, as I could on forever. Hope I’ve helped at least a few people with this. Have a great 2016 everyone!

    ps. One last thing. Thrive is not a weight loss product. Despite what is being claimed and where Thrive gets categorized by people who don’t know, Thrive has never been labeled a weight loss product by Le-Vel or any reputable promoter. Is weight loss a perk? For many, yes. For others, no. Is weight loss advertised or pointed out by Le-Vel and it’s promoters. Yes. Because it does happen. But Thrive is not a diuretic or simple weight loss product. Weight loss with Thrive happens, usually because people have more energy, become more active, with filled in nutritional gaps many “cravings” go away which cuts down on caloric intake, your bodies metabolism can get ramped up with changes in diet, lean muscle support and exercise. Many people don’t feel that they need to eat as much because the body has what it needs to operate efficiently all day. So they feel full quicker. The DFT keeps us on an even keel throughout the day and helps to eliminate the crashes we feel. There are a lot of reasons for weight loss in people. Maybe you’re not losing weight because you are gaining lean muscle while you lose fat? Maybe people continue to eat fast food, greasy foods, etc.

    Alright, now I’m done 🙂

    So how does the company make money if everyone can get it for free?

    • Anton English at 11:31 am

      Thats easy Sherri,

      Not everyone is getting it for free.

      You need to have certain number of people you referred that are buying every month, then you qualify for free product. The company can sell that to break even, or they can sell it at a loss and write it off as an expense of marketing.

      Somebody ALWAYS pays. Its just that sometimes the person paying is not immediately noticeable

      • Don Brown at 9:02 pm

        Yup, exactly right. My wife and I have been Thriving and promoting for a year. We paid for our first month & never spent another penny. But someone pays. We have customers who love the product & are content investing $5/day… Then we have other customers who want to get it free. We help them do that by running promotions or speaking with their referrals, etc… Essentially it comes down to this: if you like the product enough you’ll find a way to afford it. Some people would rather pay $5/day & not mention that they’re thriving to a single person (closet Thrivers lol) then there are the ones who tell the world how great they feel & get their referrals fairly quickly… Can’t leave out the ones who detox or fail at the business and forever blast hatred over the net… We all have our place. To each his/her own. Personally, we’ve been blessed, physically & financially by Le-Vel & their products. ????

    • Derek at 11:42 am


      Anton hit one part of it. Some people choose to keep their Thrive Experience private and do not even attempt to get their products for free. I have to respect that. Seems a little foolish, but I respect their decision.

      Another part is that the vast majority of accounts with Le-Vel are customer accounts. Customers don’t make commission. I have some customers that don’t want to promote the products or company as a business but they’ve registered 10 plus people under them. It only takes 2 people to earn free product. Commissions are still paid out to the promoters above them, but if you take out one entire level (the largest level of commissions),those basically stay with the company. I’m estimating 90% +/- of accounts are customer accounts. That’s a lot of commissions being saved.

      Le-Vel also saves a lot of money that other companies don’t. Being 100% cloud based, removes millions of dollars of overhead and on going cost. These savings also ensure LV can give back to it’s customers and promoters the way it does. This month we donated $140,000 to Toys For Tots organization. In November we donated $210,000 for Breast Cancer research. Earlier in 2015 we donated $50,000 to the Hoyt Foundation (Which if you don’t know who they are, look them up. Incredible story) We will be doing more with them this year.

      Another novel from me, but I wanted to give you the answers to question.

  47. Derek at 10:46 am

    I apologize for the lengthy reply and I’ll probably do it again here. But there is so much information needing to be shared and corrected out here on the web, that I’m making it mission one. If people want information, answers to questions or concerns regarding Thrive or Le-Vel, Google is the last place a person should go. There is so much horrible information out here, it’s truly scary. Sites suggesting that people have the ability to and some even recommending that people purchase product on sites like Amazon, EBay or Craigslist is horrible advice. It’s against Le-Vel company policy to do so, but it’s not because they don’t want to sell product. It’s for the safety of the consumer. There is no way to know that products, you are going to be putting into your mouth and swallowing, has not been contaminated. One lady on my team purchased her first month of Thrive off of Amazon and she received used DFT and she paid full value for it! It had been pressed back onto the film after being worn and the vacuum sealed. That’s freaking nasty! Le-Vel will not stand behind products purchased in these types of locations, because there is no verification of non-contamination and tampering. You are not going to get reliable help, if any help at all, from the people selling on those sites. If you’ve already made the decision to purchase the products any, why go to site like that? It’s very very dangerous. There are far too many messed up people in this world to trust going about things in that way.

    If people want information, go to an actual Le-Vel Brand Promoter. There is no obligation in purchasing product to speak with us. Our goal is to simply inform and educate you on what Thrive is, how you take the products, what it can possibly do for you, why it can do what it does and answer the questions you have. In full discloser, yes, we will probably ask that you register with Le-Vel. This step is 100% free. Name & email address are all that is required. Doesn’t matter if you want to be a customer or Le-Vel promoter. Why would we ask this? Because we are devoting our time to you and will continue to help you going forward. In turn we ask that if you decide this is something that you want to do, you do it as a member of our team. Otherwise I would be growing other people’s teams and businesses. I hope that makes sense. No one makes money from you registering. I could register a million people tomorrow and I wouldn’t make a penny, unless someone actually ordered product.

    If someone is registered under a bad promoter (and there are some) reach out and ask for help from another promoter. Either further up the line or even on a different team. We can maybe help you get things resolved.

    See, went long again 🙂

  48. shurbelle at 6:45 pm

    Can I ask a question here? If so, I am interested in the product and the business. Can someone answer the question: Is it possible I can direct traffic/people directly to my LeVel log in page with the create a new customer account page showing? Do I need to make a new website separate from the professional one I use for ordering (and seeing the LV product and lifestyle)?

    • Yes, this is easily achievable. You do not need to make a separate account for this, everything you need is already built into the free website provided.

  49. shurbelle,

    I can’t tell if you are already enrolled with Le-Vel or not. If you are enrolled, didn’t your “sponsor” walk you through how this works? There is no way to integrate another website into your enrollment process. Just share your link with those who are interested. Tell them they can choose either enroll as a customer or promoter, but you recommend they enroll as a customer first, until you have a chance to talk with them and cover some of the basics of what being a promoter entails. Namely, getting the right package for them, explaining the VIPs, any other promotional offers being offered at that time, introducing them to another friend of yours within the company that you’d like them to be comfortable going to with questions, etc.

    The process is simple and free, but that doesn’t mean unimportant. As promoters, it’s our job to get the right information out, in a timely fashion and help them become successful. Whether that’s teaching the simple process of ordering products, explaining the packages, the proper steps in taking the products and how to share the experience with others. This is where I hope you have a good team to work with!

    Hope this helps.

  50. In an attempt to keep everyone up to date on Le-Vel, I thought I had better highlight our new product release called Sequential FORM. Form is a berry flavored, Sublingual, Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein Gel. Squeeze the gel into your mouth, hold for 20 seconds, then swallow. The gels starts being absorbed in the mouth, then the stomach and if anything remains, the rest is absorbed in the intestines. The cool part is we FINALLY have an actual protein product in our line up. The other awesome part, is that it is collagen protein. This type of protein is awesome for not only the workout warriors of the world, but also the average person as well. As we age, our bodies lose the capabilities of producing collagen. Thus our bodies start to break down, we develop wrinkles, our hair and nails aren’t what they once were, muscles weaken, etc. Collagen protein is also a appetite control agent, helps in weight loss, builds muscle, strengthens bones, helps joints and a long list of other bonuses.

    With FORM, there is no more need for chunky, heavy in the stomach, horrible tasting, protein shakes! With FORM you also get 100% absorption. FORM also comes in premeasured single serve packets. No measuring, no mess, no container to haul around and packs light. Going on a trip for a week, throw in 7 packets.

    Le-Vel also released a new design of DFT, called WILD. The DFT formulation stayed the same. WILD is new design patterns of various animal prints (Zebra, leopard, giraffe, snake) in varying colors. Simply gives people a new way to express themselves. They are really cool though! For those that haven’t checked up on what DFT is, DFT is a foam “patch” that is wearable nutrition. It delivers nutrients through your skin and into your blood stream 24 hours a day, to help with the sustained energy, general body discomforts, mood stabilization, appetite control and a balanced all day energy feeling. Wish I could post pictures and/or video to show you what they look like, but this will have to do.

    Le-Vel has also just leased the qualifications for our next Lifestyle getaway. It is a mystery location at this time, but I’m sure they’ll be dropping hints soon. Our destination will be awesome though, if you go by our previous history. Cabo, Cancun, New Orleans, Las Vegas. February is a qualifying month for the getaway, so jump right in and start earning your qualifications!

    I have been taking Thrive for a few weeks and I have been noticing that I have been losing a lot more hair then normal. Has anyone else noticed this?

  52. Don Brown at 11:30 am

    No. I have short hair but my wife and daughter both have stronger hair and nails since taking Thrive. If you’re losing a lot of hair, it may be an underlying problem that you should get checked out.
