About TruVision Health Weight Loss

TruVision Health Weight Loss supplements promise to inspire you and help “improve your wellbeing” using ingredients that can optimize your blood chemistry. As a result, you could maintain a healthy body weight, mental clarity, general sense of wellbeing, blood sugar balance, liver health, immune function, and more.

Although TruVision claims to be a product-oriented company, delivering something that people need, they also believe that their supplements and business opportunity can encourage people to develop good character traits. On top of this, we’re told that you won’t feel pressured to spend a lot of money to try out their products.

Even if TruVision is about “serving and helping other people,” does this necessarily mean their products will deliver real world results? Should you begin selling the company’s products? You have a ton of important questions about TruVision Health and we’re here to help you find some answers.

What Is a TruVision Distributor? What Is Their Compensation Plan?

Before going any further, it’s important to discuss the fact that TruVision is a multi-level marketing (MLM) company who only sells their products through independent Distributors. Whether we’re talking about TruVision’s Distributors or any other MLM organization, they typically earn money through a combination of:

  • Direct Sales – Whether in person or online, like any other “retailer,” Distributors earn profit based on the difference between their cost for a product and what they sell it for. Click here to learn about TruVision’s Retail, Preferred, and Associate pricing structure.
  • Upline Sales – Let’s say you enroll three other Distributors under your code. This means that they’ll become part of your “downline,” allowing you to earn a small commission from each sale they make. Consequently, the more Distributors in your downline, the more money you stand to make. For details, here is TruVision Health’s Compensation Plan overview.

Now, we won’t go into excessive detail here, but one of the biggest complaints associated with MLM companies is that there is much more money to be earned from enrolling additional Distributors in your downline, versus selling more products. In fact, as you can see from TruVision’s pricing structure link above, there’s only $9 difference between Associate and Retail pricing for the TruFix supplement.

Now, we’re definitely not saying this is the case with TruVision; our only goal is to give you a complete overview of the topic. For more, be sure to read Do Multi-Level Marketing Companies Differ From Pyramid Schemes?

What are the company’s on-the-ground Distributors saying, though? We’ll talk more about this shortly. First, let’s take a look at TruVision’s product lineup.

TruVision Health Weight Loss Products

Overall, there are 14 products in TruVision’s lineup, across three different categories:

Core Products

TruFIX – Contains natural plant extracts the company claims have been “proven to improve key components of blood chemistry,” resulting in improved blood sugar, cholesterol, liver function, general health, and more.

Tru Weight & Energy (Gen 2) – Uses ingredients that can help optimize the body’s metabolic processes, resulting in weight loss, decreased body fat, and increased energy, without jitters.

reNu Detox – Claims to eliminate toxins while maintaining the good flora in your digestive tract.

rePlace – A vegan protein/fiber shake designed with nutrients and probiotics to curb sugar cravings, support recovery time, ensure proper digestion, and more.

Complete – A line of women’s and men’s multivitamins, including MSM, Omega-3, Pycnogenol, Ubiquinol, and more.

Heart & Hydration – A drink the company claims will hydrate your body with electrolytes and promote heart health and cardiovascular function.

truElevate – Designed to increase energy without “over-stimulating the cardiovascular system.”

Complementary Products

truSlumber – Formulated to help you get a good night’s sleep, without side effects or potentially addictive substances.

truSoothe – A blend of essential oils that can help soothe sore, stiff muscles.

truFuel – A “balanced meal” in a bag that contains a blend of whole food ingredients like almonds, cashews, peanuts, raisins, apricots, essential oils, and more.

truMend – A first aid balm that can help address cuts, scrapes, but bites, and other types of skin irritation.

simplyFresh – A 100% natural deodorant for those with a “healthy and active lifestyle.”

simplyClean – A 100% biodegradable, nontoxic cleaner that can be used to sanitize any surface.

Essential Oils

A line of essential oils formulated to do everything from help you breathe better to deliver uplifting scents throughout your day.

What Is TruVision Health’s 7-Day Trial Pack?

Obviously, most of TruVision Health’s products are focused on helping individuals lose weight. But if you’re on the fence about placing a full-size order, the company offers a 7-Day Trial Pack that contains a week’s worth of TruFix and TruWeight & Energy supplements.

According to one popular Distributor, this combination will reduce your sugar cravings, detox your cells, and even “break away and dissolve visceral fat” (note: we couldn’t find this last claim supported on TruVision’s website). The Distributor even claims that the average Trial Pack user loses 4-7 pounds during this time, simply by taking 2 pills twice a day.

Is this what you can really expect? Let’s take a quick look.

What Ingredients Do TruVision Health’s Supplements Contain?

While you probably wouldn’t benefit from a breakdown of every ingredient contained in each one of TruVision’s products, let’s briefly explore arguably their most popular supplement (and one contained in their 7-Day Trial Pack): the TruWeight & Energy supplement.

Here’s how the label reads:

Some of these (such as niacin, vitamin B12, and calcium) are essential for human health, while stimulants like caffeine and citrus aurantium (aka bitter orange) can certainly boost energy and temporarily suppress your appetite. However, there isn’t sufficient clinical evidence showing that any of these ingredients, whether on their own or in conjunction, can reliably help you lose a meaningful amount of weight and keep it off for the long term.

Will these ingredients cause any harm, though?

Will TruVision’s Ingredients Cause Any Side Effects?

For the most part, you probably won’t experience anything worse than mild digestive upset (if anything at all) from ingredients like these.

In some instances, niacinamide is known to cause temporary flushing, and in rare cases, n-acetyl cysteine can cause rashes, fever, headache, and low blood pressure.

However, it’s important to point out that TruVision’s TruWeight & Energy supplement contains a lot of stimulants, including caffeine (in both proprietary blends), bitter orange, additional caffeine in the green tea, hordenine, and evodiamine. This is something to be aware of, especially if you’re sensitive to stimulants.

From this perspective, as anyone who’s had too much coffee will attest, too much caffeine can cause jitteriness, digestive upset, headache, and more. Other stimulants, like evodiamine, aren’t understood well enough by the medical community to know what kinds of side effects you might experience.

Finally, WebMD has this to say about citrus aurantium (bitter orange):

“… bitter orange is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken as a supplement for a medical purpose such as weight loss. Bitter orange, particularly when taken with stimulants such as caffeine or caffeine-containing herbs, increases the risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack, stroke, and other severe side effects.”

How Much Do TruVision Health’s Weight Loss Products Cost?

According to TruVision Health’s current pricing structure, you’ll pay the following (all prices are in Retail, while you’ll pay $3-$12 less each for Preferred and Associate pricing):

  • truFix: $42.95
  • truElevate Capsules: $30.55
  • truElevate Smoothies: $76.06
  • truWeight & Energy: $58.95
  • truFuel: $49.95
  • Heart & Hydration: $49.95
  • truSlumber: $35.95
  • simplyClean: $17.95
  • truMend (0.15oz): $10
  • truMend Large (0.5oz): $28.34
  • simplyFresh: $15
  • truDefense: $16.25
  • 7-Day Trial Pack: $25

All orders come with free shipping. But remember that TruVision Health only sells their products through independent Distributors, so you’ll have to contact one to place and order.

What about refunds? According to TruVision Health’s Policies & Procedures page, they provide a 90% refund, less S&H charges, on all products returned in resalable condition within 30 days. The same scenario seems to apply to Distributors who return products from one of their Retail customers.

However, they go on to note:

“… if the order is canceled and the product is returned after commissions have been paid, then TruVISION shall deduct the commission payout from the refund, then refund the remaining portion, which is approximately 40% of the wholesale price.”

Now, let’s see what customers are saying about TruVision’s supplements and other products.

Online Reviews for TruVision Health’s Weight Loss Products

A couple of TruVision Health’s products were listed on Amazon at the time of writing, with their 7-day supply of TruFix and TruElevate (the trial we discussed earlier) getting the most feedback. With 23 customer reviews and an average rating of 3.3 stars, most seemed pleased with the increase in energy and the appetite suppression it provided.

On the other hand, more than one customer claimed it didn’t provide any results. One also seemed to have experienced a side effect from the stimulants, claiming the supplement gave her a “racing heartbeat” and a “manic” feeling.

We also found a review on DietSpotlight, who wrote that some customers have also reported mood swings (generally anger and agitation), which we feel would be consistent with excessive stimulant intake. They also noted that, while the company makes many claims about supporting weight loss, they provide no science to back them up.

From a company perspective, TruVision Health was co-founded by Travis Martin, Derek Bailey, Shawn Gibson, and David Brown (who also acted as Formulator for the company’s supplements).

Based on their bios on the TruVision website, it appears they all have extensive backgrounds in the network marketing (MLM) and direct sales industries, but not necessarily in the scientific/clinical aspect of nutritional supplements. David is said to have a “special knack for nutritional formulation,” although exactly what this means isn’t made clear.

It appears TruVision Health was sent an FDA warning letter in 2015, mostly related to advertising practices. It seems the company promoted one ingredient (DMBA) a supplement, when it’s not classified as such. Also, that the bitter orange extract included constituted “a new dietary ingredient for which there is inadequate information to provide reasonable assurance that such ingredient does not present a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury.”

Let’s answer one more question before we go: How do TruVision Health’s weight loss products compare one of the biggest MLM players in the weight loss industry?

TruVision Health vs. Plexus: Who Wins?

Alongside AdvoCare, Plexus is a giant in the MLM weight loss industry, with popular products like Slim (also known as the “Pink Drink”), Edge, and many others. Like TruVision, their products are sold through Distributors, although their compensation plans seem to be meaningfully different.

Some other meaningful differences are that TruVision has only been in existence since 2015, while Plexus has been around since 1979, which could be an important consideration if you’re looking to become a Distributor. And because they’ve been in business for so long, you’ll be able to find a ton more feedback for Plexus than for TruVision—which again, could be important if you’re interested in becoming part of their team.

What’s the Bottom Line About TruVision Health Weight Loss Products?

The HighYa team has watched as several supplement-focused MLM companies have entered the market over the last few years, such as Brain Abundance, Limu, LifeVantage, Omnitrition, and many more. And while you’ll always find plenty of people who vehemently sing the praises of these MLM companies, it’s been our experience that their supplements often feature underwhelming formulations, with ingredients that lack the clinical evidence necessary to support the manufacturer’s claims.

Does this necessarily mean that TruVision Weight Loss products won’t help you shed pounds and inches? No. Does this mean you won’t become a sensational hit as a Distributor? Certainly not, although the odds aren’t stacked in your favor for any networking marketing “opportunity” (not just TruVision).

Taken together, only you can decide if TruVision Health’s meaningfully higher prices than the competition will provide a better value for your money, or if their short time in business means you should stay away.

    Does not work

    • Sedalia, MO,
    • May 15, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been taking TruVision for 4 months. I have had jitters and nausea, and headaches the whole time I have takin it. My husband spoke to the supposed girl that they assign to you when you order. She said to only take it once a day and see if that helps. It did not. I have NOT lost anything either. I don't drink soda, just water, and the pill makes me so thirsty all the time. Supposed to give you more energy. Well, about 30 minutes after I take it I am so tired for the rest of the day, which makes it hard for me to do my job. My husband started the same day I did and he also hasn't lost any weight. Hasn't even reduced the craving as it says it will. I think this is a total joke just like every diet pill out there.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    TruVision works for me

    • Illinois,
    • Apr 10, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have had very great results with TruVision. I can see that with all things, what works for some may not work for others. Such is life. It helps boosts my metabolism and I see such major results usually 3 to 4 pounds gone each week. No jittery feeling. Keep in mind, it's best for me to take both sets of pills as early as possible each day (7:00 am and 12:00 pm) as to not get into trouble with not sleeping, which I might! This product is amazing to me how it does what it says it does!

    Although I see there are mixed reviews, I am a believer in the product. My doc said there was nothing in the pills that would harm me. I have been on them for about 6 months and have lost 45lbs and have pics of myself to prove it. I also have other personal friends who have also lost weight and have pictures. No fake pics for me. I only post those who I know personally. I have better energy, sleep better, better appetite control and cravings are down. Not saying it's for everybody, but I learned you have to stick with it. It won't just happen in a couple of months. Consistency is the key. I also have high blood pressure, but it does not affect it. I was headed down a dangerous path in my health. I was almost 400lbs because I had truly let myself go. I had no idea how bad it was until I started losing weight and feeling better and looked back on pictures from last year. I'm still on the product because I haven't got to my goal weight loss yet, but I'm not giving up!

    I was the biggest skeptic of them all. On the sidelines for almost 12 months whilst I watched many family and friends having great success with the product. I gave in and started and within the first day my cravings for Pepsi Max were gone. No headaches. Within a few more days I didn’t crave for anything and was never hungry. I started on the truFIX and truWEIGHT and energy. In the first month I dropped 14 kgs, and then within 5 months, I’d lost 35 kgs. When I started I was on BP meds and arthritis meds but happy to say I now take nothing at all after being on arthritis meds for nearly 40 years.

    I found I was no longer needing that afternoon nanna-nap and was just overall feeling great. I will definitely continue to use the product as nothing has been so great for me.

    Over priced and back office issues

    • Pennsylvania,
    • Mar 5, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    The product is ok and I lost weight. I am not sure it's as healthy as they say and it's overpriced in my opinion.

    They set you up with a back office to order from and it's slow and doesn't work half the time. I canceled my monthly shipping order this month but it was sent out anyways. You're supposed to get points for money off if you have monthly shipping set up but the points are low and on items I don't want.

    I am very disappointed and will more than likely stop taking the product.

    Saved my life!

    • Springdale, AR,

    When I decided to try out TruVision I was very skeptical and was determined that it wasn't going to work. But what did I have to lose? I was already the biggest I had ever been, I was on 2 BP pills and diabetes meds and felt LIKE CRAP! I had "checked out" and was picturing myself in the ER. The day I started my pills I checked my blood pressure, and as usual, it was stroke level and my head had so much pressure built up. Took my first dose and forgot about it. Like I said, I had no faith in these pills. Took my lunch dose and realized my head didn't feel so "full." I could literally feel the pressure going down. Could TruVision be helping me? I went down and checked my BP and really? It was already going down! Hmmmm...weird...guess I'll keep going. Now I'm 40 lbs lighter, four pant sizes down, and I'm off ALL MY MEDS! The only pills I pop now are my TruFix and truCONTROL and a couple other vitamins that TruVision offers.

    I agree that TruVision is not for everyone but the ones who follow the simple guidelines and stay consistent WILL SEE AND FEEL RESULTS. I'm highly satisfied!

    This has been the most amazing products ever! I have multiple disabilities and had tried everything out there and when I found TruVision Health it was the best thing to ever happen to me!

Consistency is key with this product, and you really need to work closely with your associate to tailor it to you specifically, but it is the best product out there!

    Side effects

    • Pennsylvania,
    • Jan 23, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I started with a sample pack of truCONTROL and truFIX. I didn't feel good, very dizzy, nauseous, and just a feeling of being very week, and my head hurt. I could not work this way, was told it was the detox, which is the truFIX, so I stopped taking that part, then figured maybe I did something wrong and thought I would try again after reading some Facebook things. I am now back to exactly the same bad feeling after one day, however, this time I am missing work as I'm afraid to drive being so dizzy. I know I did everything right this time as far as the amount of water and eating protein as it says. I only took it one time a day as that's what they say to do in the beginning. I need to add that a couple of days I only took the truCONTROL and felt great, no side effects, but as soon as I took the truFix, I was sick not once, but twice.
