Modere is a multilevel marketing company that is best known for its M3 formulation—a weight loss strategy that involves taking three supplements and making three lifestyle changes to improve your weight and your health.
Modere also specializes in health, skin care and anti-aging products.
Did I get on board? This explains everything:
Moreover, Modere is very hot right now—search engine traffic has ticked upward sharply since December of 2016, with web traffic more than doubling in the following three months. With a wide range of clean, well-designed products to sell, Modere is a good bet for successful multilevel marketing in 2017.
The company has claimed over a billion dollars in sales so far, according to a press release. They have set very aggressive expansion and sales goals, and for now at least, look as if they are on track to meet them. The company sells a clean, safe, healthy, and high-class image—all of its products have clean, simplistic designs and a sleek look to them. MLM products are no longer dominated by glitzy, vibrantly colored advertising and packaging.
Modere offers a tremendous selection of lifestyle products, from skincare to laundry detergent to supplements and food products. This means that it’s easy to sell the lifestyle associated with it: clean, healthy living, in all areas of your life.
This gives it a strong expansion capability in a market, especially compared to other competitors who focus on one category products, or even one specific line of products.
However, Modere is probably best-known for their M3 system for weight loss. It involves three supplements, plus choosing three (out of a possible five) lifestyle changes.
The first supplement, Burn, is a combination of coffee bean extract, green tea extract, and the herbal supplement cordyceps sinensis. The purpose of Burn, as you can guess from the name, is to help you increase your metabolic expenditure.
Caffeine, which is in both coffee bean extract and green tea extract, is a known metabolism booster. According to research by scientists at Harvard School of public health and Harvard Medical School, caffeine intake over long periods of time is associated with small but statistically significant amounts of weight loss.
Their study, which followed tens of thousand subjects over a twelve-year period, found that when people increased their caffeine intake during the duration of the study, their weight dropped (or more correctly, their rate of weight gain decreased, since most of the subjects in the study actually put on weight during the dozen-year duration of the experiment).
Green tea extract is also known to effectuate a weight loss effect on its own, too. Research published in the International Journal of Obesity confirms this. Green tea intake, and especially intake of the active ingredient EGCG, is a potent modulator of metabolic activity; it does so by increasing your metabolic rate and increasing the amount of fat that you burn for energy.
Cordyceps sinensis seems to have a secondary effect in promoting metabolic health. The evidence for a direct weight loss effect is weak, but there is some interesting data suggesting it can improve your blood sugar levels.
One of the classic consequences of being overweight is something called metabolic syndrome, which involves high blood sugar levels and is a major predictor of type 2 diabetes, as well as other chronic health conditions, so reducing their levels is a very desirable health outcome.
A 2006 article in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine found that a cordyceps sinensis supplement reduced blood glucose levels in rats over the course of a 28-day experiment, a result corroborated by other research.
Next up on the M3 regimen is Sustain, a meal replacement shake that’s based on pea protein. Pea protein is advantageous because it makes the routine an easier sell for people who don’t eat dairy products (since most meal replacement shakes use whey protein, which is derived from milk).
Paradoxically, increasing protein intake seems to help with weight loss. You’d think that increasing your energy intake would make you gain weight, but protein powders seem to help induce weight loss.
As reported in a 2009 article in the Annual Review of Nutrition, the suspected mechanism behind this may be increased satiety (fullness), or the body’s increased energy expenditure as a result of protein intake.
The final element of the M3 supplement protocol is Sync, which is a oat bran fiber and pectin-based supplement. Dietary fiber, either taken naturally or as a supplement, is known to increase weight loss, probably by increasing satiety.
Weight gain is reduced when low-fiber foods like refined grains are substituted with high-fiber foods, according to research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Additionally, oat bran fiber in particular is known to reduce cholesterol levels. In this instance, as with the Burn supplement, both immediate effects (weight loss) and long-term effects (reduced cholesterol levels) are targeted, making this better than just a crash dieting course.
The basic signup cost is only $29.95, though there are additional tools you are “encouraged” to sign up for. Modere requires 100 product volume autoship every month, and you need to advance pretty high in the pecking order to earn any commission.
Their commission rates and wholesale discounts are pretty low, too. You get a 4% commission on your first two levels at the beginning rank on their plan, though this climbs to 7% once you move up the ladder a bit. Discounts of 10-20% are what you can qualify for when it comes to wholesale prices.
Modere’s product line has a number of things going for it: its clean aesthetic, its wide range of product categories, and its very attractive M3 program for weight loss. On top of this, the company is a hot commodity; sales and search traffic are spiking upward in 2017. This is offset by their unattractive compensation plan, so definitely make sure you have a rock-solid business plan before jumping in.
If you’re set on MLM, this one’s not terrible, but probably not the best, either.
If you’re doing it for the money, there are better ways to kill your day job. You might like our coaching because it shows you the good life without peddling products to your family and friends.
