LifeVantage and Philippines with Protandim
In September of 2013, LifeVantage announced an pre-launch, in the Philippines. As of December 10th 2013, the company entered a soft-launch period, and has begun shipping distributor kits (called Vantage Packs) and customer packages to enrolled preferred customers into all areas of the Philippines. LifeVantage is operating under an NFR license, meaning, its products Protandim™ and TrueScience™ are shipped from the United States, sold directly to consumers to the Philippines, but are not allowed for resale until full on the ground sale status is obtain likely by the end of 2014. However LifeVantage is paying commissions to distributors for product orders, and in the process of growing the market through a phased approach that will result in full on the ground sales in the months ahead. No official dates have been announced.

Commonly Asked Questions
How much does it Cost? Distributors can enroll with a Vantage Pack under two plans, one is a ₱37,500 one time, that includes 10 Protandim bottles, and 1 TrueScience Regimen (4 products) with the business materials and starter kit, there is also a 13 bottle Protandim option for Vantage Pack orders. You also get a website and other training materials. Soon to be offered is a ₱10,400 kit that comes with 4 Protandim, but has limitations in that the the distributor doesn’t earn the infinite fast start bonuses in the commission plan, so the vantage pack is a better option for most distributors looking to build a serious business. TrueScience costs ₱4,300, but when shipped together the cost is ₱6,700. Other programs in the near future will be available as the market is opened in phases.
Do you have a warehouse in Philippines? No. This will be obtained as the company establishes in the market. This will help decrease shipping times and save costs, and will be available in the near future.
Do you have an office in the Philippines? Yes, but the office is owned and payed for by LifeVantage distributors, it is located in Pasig (Manila). However distributors conduct small presentations in most major cities from Manila, Cebu to Davao and many other places. When LifeVantage completes the company registration in the Philippines, they will acquire and staff their own office. This process in our Japan market took about 2+ years. The Philippines market is growing faster however.
Is Protandim and TrueScience PFDA approved? No, not yet, but the process (which involves several steps) has already been started, and is far along. Protandim is already registered in several other markets, including Canada Health, Australia TGA, the USA FDA and other markets. These things take time, and the Philippines is no different.
Is LifeVantage a binary? No, its a dynamically compressed unilevel. This is a very good thing. It means even with one leg, you get paid, and you get help from your upline, because they don’t have binary type weak legs. Dynamic compression allows for you to earn royalty on all products sold in your business.
What makes Protandim different than other products? Simple. Research. Peer reviewed research published in 3rd party journals. In most cases the research was funded and conducted outside of LifeVantage. Protandim is also a different solution to oxidative stress. Rather than taking antioxidants, that likely cause harm, you’re telling the body to make its own.
What makes LifeVantage different than other MLM companies? Transparency. As a public traded company on the Nasdaq stock exchange in the USA, the security and exchange commissions requires them to publish their financials. They’re also new, but experienced. This way there is no experiment on the Philippines market. LifeVantage is growing, and while they’re only in 6 countries, there are dozens more on the list. This means the timing cannot be better. Larger companies who have already expanded globally, have lost much of the timing.

I read on the Internet Protandim and LifeVantage are scams? Anybody can say anything they want on the Internet, but it doesn’t make it true. It’s well understood these sources (who are not reliable) also not disclose their real name and hide behind aliases. This is a good sign that they’re not trustworthy. In contrast, Protandim has been published in medical journals who’s authors have been disclosed, and who’s research have been reviewed and validated by their editors, doctor’s and attorney’s. Also, because LifeVantage is traded on the Nasdaq, has been reviewed by several governments regulators and is conducting their business in the full light of regulatory review on a regular basis. If you have specific questions, there are specific answers.

Here are details on the new Freedom Pack
Do I need a credit card to enroll? No, a credit card works, or any debit bank card, so long as it has the Visa or Master card logo on the card. Several banks can issue such a debit card.
Is there a monthly autoship requirement for distributors? An optional autoship as low as ₱2,600 can be setup, changed or cancelled at anytime. Commissions are based on points, and most distributors setup enough points on an autoship to qualify to maximize commissions.
How long does shipping take? Now that LifeVantage is using Johnny Air, shipments take anywhere from 7-10 business days. However, due to the backlog of all commercial packages currently being held in warehouses in areas around Cebu due to relief efforts, it might take more than 10 days. LifeVantage no longer uses Philippine Post for shipping.
