Is Uforia a Scam? It’s Another Science-Based MLM!
Welcome to my Uforia review!
All right, I’ve had some MLM programs that I reviewed that were all about products powered by science and most of them were kind of disappointing.
I would like to emphasize that the reviews on these scientific MLM’s are based on facts and not on anything else.
Today, we’re going to take a look at Uforia.
First of all, I must Congratulate you for taking your time to do your own research before buying into any "seemingly good" product.
That's the way to avoid scams and find the legitimate way to make money online!
Let me be completely transparent with you, I'm not associated with Uforia in any form.
So, rest assured that I'm not here to pitch or sell anything to you.
Instead, I'm here to reveal why this company isn't worth anyone's time at all.
Uforia Review Summary
Product Name: Uforia
Founder: Terry Lacore or Ron Williams
Product Type: Health and Wellness MLM
Price: $39.95 for the starter kit plus 100PV autoship
Best For: No one
Summary: Uforia Science is a MLM company that markets nutritional supplements based on your DNA. They give you a DNA testing kit and send you a batch of supplements based on the report. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of proof that their products work, nor is their some truth to what they are claiming. The income potential is bad enough because they don't have any income disclosure statement, and the monthly autoship is a big disappointment.
What is Uforia?
Uforia, or Uforia Sciences, is a MLM or multi-level marketing company that offers a designer product intended for your DNA profile. What they basically do is provide you with a DNA testing kit.
Their business model is similar to the following MLM Companies:
You can check out the individual reviews of these products by clicking on those links.
According to their website, their DNA test unlocks the “secrets” to your “actionable genes and how they influence the body”.
Think of it as hacking your genes with their supplements. I know it’s far-fetched and crazy, but hold your opinions for now.
The company is focused on nutritional supplements and they’re currently based in Utah, USA. Now this is where it gets tricky. Ron Williams is credited as the founder and CEO of the company, but you won’t find his name on the website.
In Harcourt Health article, Terry Lacore is credited as the owner of Uforia Science.
What’s coincidental here is that both of them have worked together in a previous MLM that ended up in a lawsuit. The lawsuit is totally unrelated to Uforia, but speaks volume of the persons involved.
Uforia Product Line
Their one and only product is some form of DNA testing kit.
And I quote from their website:
“The ÜFORIA Kit contains instructions on collecting and providing your sample to be analyzed from our CLIA-certified lab.”
You’ll need to spend $159.95 for the kit and you’ll be asked to spend another $99 if you want your DNA samples to be tested by Uforia Science themselves.
The lab processes the DNA and genetic data is used to generate personalized report that contains a custom designer nutrition based on your genetics and DNA.
Along with the DNA kit is a 30-day supply of a vegetable supplement called “Pretrition”, which is a powder formula offered based on your DNA test results. However, as of this writing, the product is not yet available.
The DNA kit contains 2 sterile cytology brushes, or DNA swabs. You use this to collect your saliva, which holds nutritional information needed for the testing. When the swabs are sent to the lab, you’ll be presented with the report and receive products such as superfoods, prebiotics, and enzymes.
Does The Product Work?
Uforia claims that we’re all susceptible to ailments and illnesses due to our genetic makeup. Some people are more susceptible to certain illnesses because they were born that way. These genetic differences are called SNP or single nucleotide polymorphism. There are 400 million different combinations of compounds and buying the ingredients separately would cost more than $2000.
This is where Uforia comes in because the supplements are designed to help you become healthier by providing you with supplements to make up for the genetic differences.
However, I find these claims and more to be downright absurd and I don’t think there’s any substance to it. If they claim to be a science-based company, then they should provide us with scientific studies about their products and their performance.
I’m talking about peer-reviewed journals and studies about their products. Until they can provide us with their journals, I don’t think there’s any proof that the product works.
How To Make Money with Uforia?
On the money-making side of things, affiliates earn commissions when they sell the DNA test kit to both retail customers and other affiliates. Before you can start earning anything, however, you’ll need to satisfy a requirement of 100 Personal Volume each and every month.
In this case, Personal Volume is generated by selling to retail customers, recruiting members, and buying product for yourself.
Uforia Science’s compensation plan doesn’t actually mention retail commissions anywhere, but instead seems to focus on residual commissions.
Residual commissions are handled using a unilevel system and pay down to seven levels of downline recruitment. As you recruit more and more people and then get your recruits to do the same thing, you’ll earn a lot more compared to focusing on selling exclusively to retail customers.
How To Get Started with Uforia?
You’ll have to sign up for a membership fee of $39.95 and then you’ll be asked to maintain a PV (personal volume) of 100 every month to stay eligible for commissions.
Uforia Compensation Plan
Their compensation plan is similar to any other MLM company and we’re just going to discuss this part very shortly.
Here’s a complete video that talks about their compensation plan in detail:
Here are the highlights of their compensation plan as well.
I would assume that they pay out a commission, even though they never mention anything about this on the video.
You earn residual commission via their unilevel compensation structure. Lowest ranking members don’t get to avail of residual commissions, and they would have to recruit people to get promoted.
Residual commissions are based on percentage of sales generated across all 8 levels.
- Builders earn 5% on levels 1 and 2
- Producers and Movers earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3 and 6% on level 4
- Shakers earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3 and 6% on levels 4 and 5
- Leaders earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3, 6% on levels 4 and 5 and 2% on levels 6 and 7
- Innovators earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3, 6% on levels 4 and 5, 4% on level 6 and 2% on level 7
- Generators and higher earn 8% on levels 1 and 2, 7% on level 3, 6% on levels 4 to 6 and 3% on level 7
You earn on volume generated beyond the first 7 levels of the unilevel team leg. Generation is defined as when a leader or higher is found in a unilevel team leg:
- This Leader or higher ranked affiliate caps off the first generation of that leg, after which a second generation begins.
- If a second Leader or higher ranked affiliate exists deeper in the leg, the second generation is capped off and third begins.
- If no other Leader or higher ranked affiliates are in the leg, the second generation extends down the full depth of the leg.
So when your 1st level member builds his or her own team, he is considered a leader, and so on. You’re allowed to earn up to 6 generations per leg.
Uforia Ugly Truths Revealed!
#1 Not Tested Scientifically
As I mentioned above, there’s just no scientific basis or proof that their products are able to diagnose, treat, or prevent illnesses.
They don’t make any real claim as to how their DNA testing works in finding out the perfect supplement for nutrition.
And even if that’s the case, there’s just no possible way that a company is able to keep up with the demands of the customers’ personalized nutritional supplements.
100 customers with 100 different needs would mean 100 different and specific products that may not be applicable to future customers!
#2 Products Are Confusing!
Their landing page is a science class that stopped halfway through the semester. They have nothing to do with any groundbreaking technology and have stopped explaining what their products are all about.
All they do is just fill you up with scientific buzz terms that aim to go after the not-so-scientifically inclined.
And they’re just after people who wants to fork over almost $2000 a year on supplements that may not even work.
#3 Low Income Potential
There’s no income disclosure statement available, so it’s safe to assume that people aren’t making any money at all from this program (except for those at the very top of the rankings).
And even if there’s some potential, it’s still very low because you’re asking people to shell out $200 for something that may not even work.There are supplements out there on Amazon that cost way cheaper than $200 and are more effective than Uforia (and they have the journals to prove it too!).
What I Like About Uforia?
There’s just nothing positive worth mentioning about the company.
Is Uforia a Scam?
Uforia tries so hard to be a breaking-edge MLM company with their scientific products, but there’s just nothing proving that their products are 100% efficient and works as intended.
The income potential is low given that there’s no income disclosure statement, and that there’s no proof that the company’s giving people a chance to make money.
For a company that markets these products, they should know better than to make unfounded claims that aren’t backed by scientific studies and journals.
How I Make a Living Online?
I'm not a fan of MLM, not because it's illegal or not profitable, but because of all the restrictions and the expensive costs involved.
Instead, Affiliate Marketing is my top recommended business model for anyone to make money online.
The reason is simple...
- You don't have to recruit anyone to make money
- You have the freedom to promote any products you want and not being restricted to only promote the products from one MLM company
- It's Free to get started
In fact, with affiliate marketing...
I've personally created a 4-Figure Monthly Passive Income Stream and become financially independent at just 21 years old without any College degree or working experience!
Through my own hard work, I went from a broke restaurant waiter to living my dream laptop lifestyle in less than a year's time...
