On December 1, 2012, two companies with powerful health products including unique herbal products merged and became one company. These 2 companies figured out that together they can become much bigger than they could become individually. Here is why! Links are in blue. It is estimated by the World Health Organisation that 80 per cent of the world’s population uses herbal medicine in some form or another within primary health care.
[February 27, 2013] TriVita is like the Victoria's Secret of network marketing or MLM (multi-level marketing). They have their own in-house printing press. Right now they have a TriVita catalog and a Amazon herb catalog that they mail out. You can get the Amazon Herb catalogs at 50 cents each (10 or more).
This 31 page catalog is like a course on herbs of the Amazon rainforest. Really! It has pictures of, descriptions of and what products contain them of iporuru, graviola, sangre de drago, passion flower, muira puama, una de gato (cat's claw), suma, maca, chanca piedra (stone breaker), jatoba, kiwicha and boldo (the most popular herb in South America).
It has a detailed description of what every product does. It should win an award. When you are done reading and learning what is in it, you can almost say that you are an ethnobotanical herbalist like I am!
Amazon Herb Company is owned by Amazon John Easterling and his wife Olivia Newton-John (she has been using these herbal foods for over 10 years). Amazon John works with a dozen tribes in the Amazon rainforest to get the 30 different herbs from there that he uses like una de gato (cat's claw), pau d'arco, stone breaker (chanca piedra), dragon's blood (sangre de drago), boldo, camu camu fruit, graviola and other herbs that grow wild, in herbal formulas for health. Wikipedia says this about Olivia Newton-John:
Olivia Newton-John, AO, OBE (born 26 September 1948) is an English-born Australian singer and actress. She is a four-time Grammy award winner who has amassed five No. 1 and ten other Top Ten Billboard Hot 100 singles and two No. 1 Billboard 200 solo albums. Her music has been successful in multiple formats including pop, country and adult contemporary and has sold an estimated over 100 million albums worldwide.
 She co-starred with John Travolta in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Grease, which featured one of the most successful film soundtracks in Hollywood history. Newton-John has been a long-time activist for environmental and animal rights issues. Since surviving breast cancer in 1992, she has been an advocate for health awareness becoming involved with various charities, health products and fundraising efforts.Amazon John does not enjoy working in a corporate office. He likes to get around and meet people and help save the Amazon rainforest and the tribes there. The other company is TriVita that is owned by Michael Ellison. He is a business man and before TriVita he had a media business and that is where his expertise is. Their main product is Nopolea juice that is made from the Nopal cactus or opuntia fruit that is also called prickly pear. This company gets it from the Sonoran desert (AZ, CA and Mexico) that is the most biodiverse desert in the world.
Please watch this 90 second commercial with Charles, Prince of Wales [not Prince Charles], Prince William, Prince Harry, Pelé (soccer star), the Dalai Lama, Harrison Ford, Robin Williams and others about the importance of saving the rainforest. "Every year destruction of the earth's rainforests releases more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than all the cars, planes and ships put together!" --Charles, Prince of Wales.
Here is Wikipedia telling about prickly pear with a picture. It is the red fruit.
TriVita has been selling this product with a TV infomercial for a few years. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory product. People use it for pain and aches which appears more frequently as people age. Some medical doctors (MDs) have tried it and liked it. They then tell their patients about if even though they are not an associate or an affiliate (now called an "independent TriVita business owner"), but only a customer. Both companies use a network marketing or multi-level marketing (MLM) compensation plan. The associates are the ones who are not just customers but also make money with it.
For simplicity the product costs the same for customers and associates. The customers that come in from infomercials are sold to affiliates. That way people can build this business just by buying customers and not contacting anyone else (unless they want to). Also people that they get in can also buy customers to build their business.
The PDR is the Physician's Desk Reference for doctors to look up medicines. Here is the Nopolea product on the PDR so doctors can look it up even though it is not a drug or medication. It says:
What's in Nopalea (Nō-pah lay´uh)Amazon Herb Company has many different herbal products for different health benefits and to help different systems. TriVita also has the best selling vitamin B-12 supplement on the planet. This is because Dr Libby works with this company and he has the original patent on it dissolving under the tongue (sublingual method). This webpage tells the story of why he developed this. It says:
Antioxidant rich Nopal cactus Superfruit is a ready to drink liquid, blended with naturally sweet Agave and an array of other beneficial nutrients. Nopalea contains a rare antioxidant called Betalain, which has been scientifically proven to help the body detoxify, reduce inflammation and promote optimal cellular health.
For thousands of years the native people of the Sonoran Desert have relied on the amazing healing properties of the indigenous plants and cacti. Sonoran Bloom brings native traditions and ancient wisdom from the Nopal cactus to you in its purest and freshest form. People everywhere are sharing the story of Nopalea™ and its wellness benefits.
He was given the chance to test his theories on volunteer drug and alcoholic in-patients in May 1980 at the State of California psychiatric hospital. His continued reading and research had convinced him that vitamin B12 was an essential nutrient necessary for the recovery of these drug addict and alcoholic patients.
There was an actual and remarkable increase in the blood level of vitamin B12 of 90 percent as compared to 19.1 percent decrease in the control group!
It turns out, that drug addicts and alcoholics are not the only people that experience nutritional deficiencies, B12 (cobalamin) in particular.Some of the associates in Amazon Herb Company and TriVita make a spare time income of around $200 a month and some make a very good full time income from it. The 2 companies together created a brand new product called Zamu Gold to help the immune system to be strong enough to avoid colds and the flu. It also contains the herbs that are in our anti-aging product. This product will be sold to customers on the infomercials just like the Nopolea product is being sold, but they will be done by Olivia Newton-John.
Here is the article about this merger on the Direct Selling News magazine. It says that the merger will happen January 1, but it was moved up to December 1, 2012. It has a picture of both owners together. It says:
That kind of innovative, mission-oriented thinking has given the company consistent organic growth over the last 13 years. TriVita ranked No. 70 on the Direct Selling News 2012 Global 100 list—leaping from No. 92 in 2011—with $102 million in net sales. The merger with Amazon Herb obviously makes the company larger, but for Ellison and Easterling, size is just a tool. For both of them, it’s all about advancing the mission. They’re simply stronger together.
TriVita has offices in the United States, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong that serve 14 countries. Ellison says that the power of technology will allow the company to do business in 100 countries in 10 years, expanding its mission around the world. [TriVita is in U.S., Canada, Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales), Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand.]Everything will be run from the TriVita office that you can call from 4 AM to 11 PM MST 7 days a week at [US: 1.800.991.7116 and Canada: 1.800.344.8797]. If you are not a customer or an associate yet, my name is Charles Bluestein and my Trivita ID number is 14645674.
“We are moving into a world that is an online, connected world,” Ellison says. “We don’t need offices in 100 countries. We need people doing the mission in 100 countries—people who have been equipped with the technology needed to make presentations so that people can experience wellness and get products into 100 countries. Our goal is to expand TriVita globally to help people everywhere experience wellness.”
Your subdomain of TriVita website is just like the company website except that everyone who joins as a customer or an associate goes under you automatically. So my TriVita website is http://www.trivita.com/14645674 (note my ID number on it) and you can order from it anytime.
TriVita will sell the products from both TriVita and Amazon Herb Company. Some people are much better than others at building an MLM business but this has the infomercials that act as an equalizer to individual ability.
Also brand new MLM companies are extremely risky since 98% of them go out of business in the first 5 years. Both of these companies are over 5 years old, but the merger makes it a brand new company and opportunity. Here is John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John together in December 2012 singing the song: I Think You Might Like It.
