Is Amare Global a Mental Wellness Pyramid Scheme? [MLM Review]

Is Amare Global a Mental Wellness Pyramid Scheme [MLM Review]

So, a few days ago someone you probably know, a family member or maybe an old friend introduced you to Amare Global.

They told you all about the company’s products and how they can help people improve their mental state and become happier.

In addition, they told you that Amare Global is an MLM company which means that you can make money by promoting its products as well as recruiting a team of people who will do the same. 

The whole concept sounded very interesting but since you’ve heard your fair share of MLM horror stories, instead of diving head-first into Amare Global you decided to first conduct your research (good for you).

Before I move on to the actual Amare Global MLM review, I want to reveal to you some statistics about the MLM business model that will probably SHOCK you to your very core.

Amare Global is an MLM company that operates in the mental wellness supplements industry.

The company was launched in 2016 by Hiep Tran in cooperation with a team of other founding executives such as Rich Higbee, Mike Brown, Mark Nguyen, and Shawn Talbott.

As it seems, prior to founding Amare, most of the company’s founders had come face to face with mental health-related problems one way or another.

Tran began his entrepreneurial journey at 23 when he decided that medical school was not for him and started working for a payment-processing company. Eventually, that company got sold and in 2018, Tran along with a partner invested all their savings in founding a company of their own called “Meritus Payment Solutions”.

Tran achieved a high level of success with Meritus Payment Solutions but he did so at the expense of his own physical and mental health – he was an alcoholic for many years, something that affected the overall wellness of his entire family.

Learning from his mistakes and hardships, Tran developed a passion for health and wellness which he wanted to share with other people and that’s how the idea for Amare began to take shape.

Rich claims that 3 of his daughters struggled with depression and anxiety and one of them turned into a drug addict.

Mike claims that he has also gone through some dark times during his life and wishes that he had access to some supplements like Amare’s to help him pull through…

Years ago, Shawn’s brother died of a drug overdose. Seeing him struggling with addiction, depression, anxiety, being in and out of jail and never feeling comfortable in his own skin for his entire life made Shawn want to figure out what in his brother’s mental health kept dragging him down and how he could help him.

After years of research, Shawn believes that if he had the knowledge he has now back then, he probably would have been able to help his bother through some of those mental wellness challenges that he was facing but since he can’t do it now for him, he decided to do it for other people who go through the same or similar challenges through Amare.

“Amare” means “to love” in Latin!

According to Amare, the company is built upon the 5 core values of 

  • Love
  • Integrity
  • Innovation
  • Service
  • Humility

The company’s mission is to create a holistic mental wellness platform of products, programs, and people. Its vision is to lead the global mental wellness revolution.

You can find a lot more about Amare Global and its founders, products, science, policies, business opportunity, mission, etc on the company’s official website.

DON'T bother joining an MLM...

…until you’ve taken a good look at these shocking MLM statistics.

Amare Global's Products & Prices

Amare Global manufactures and distributes a variety of supplements that boost overall mental wellness.

Responsible for Amare’s research, development and product formulation is one of the company’s co-founders, Dr. Shawn Talbott.

Most of Amare’s products are formulated based on what they call the Gut-Brain Axis.

The Gut-Brain Axis is the connection between our brain and our gut.

According to several studies, our primary brain cooperates with our gut which is considered our second brain in order to produce more feel-good neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine.

These are the very compounds that shape how we feel, signifying that maintaining a healthy balance between our brain and our gut could be considered the basis of a solid mental wellness.

Recent studies have revealed that our gut microbiome includes more than 100 trillion bacterial cells — outnumbering human cells by 10-to-1 (more microbes in the human body than stars in the Milky Way!). Those gut microbes produce more feel-good neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine, than the brain itself! These are the very compounds that shape how we feel, signifying that the balance within the gut-brain axis forms the very foundation of our mental wellness.

The Gut-Brain Axis is not something that Amare Global came up with but a concept that is being constantly studied all around the world. If you search around the web you’ll find innumerable resources and documentaries about the subject.

So, Amare’s products supposedly focus on optimizing the brain, the gut, as well as the communication network between them in order to help people achieve optimal mental health.

Amare’s flagship gut-brain axis nutrition system is the Amare FundaMentals Pack.

The FundaMentals Pack is a combination of the 3 following products:

  • MentaBiotics – Gut Support
  • MentaFocus – Brain Support
  • MentaSync – Axis support

According to Amare, the FundaMentals Pack

  • Promotes a healthy gut
  • Supports the growth and vitality of beneficial gut bacteria
  • Boosts cognitive function and clarity
  • Improves mood and reduces tension and stress
  • Improves psychological vigor (physical energy, mental acuity, and emotional well-being)

It goes without saying that none of these claims have been evaluated and approved by the FDA and that none of Amare’s products are meant to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Nonetheless, Amare’s FundaMentals Pack won the NutrAward for Best New Finished Product in 2018.

The FundaMentals Pack costs $234 for a 30-day supply.

Each one of the products included in the FundaMentals Pack can also be purchased separately.

  • MentaBiotics: $66.95
  • MentaFocus: $60
  • MentaSync: $74

Other products that are manufactured and distributed by Amare Global are: 

  • MentaHeart: $104 -> Heart-brain axis nutrition
  • Reboot+: $34 -> Cleanses and reboots your gut-brain system
  • Mood+: $80 -> Mood-boosting supplement
  • Energy+: $60 -> Boosts mental energy and performance
  • Relief+: $74 -> Anti-inflammatory & Antioxidant 
  • Sleep+: $80 -> Promotes higher-quality and more restful sleep
  • Probiotics: $40 -> Support gut health, immune function, and normal inflammatory balance
  • Digestive: $40 -> Promotes the digestion process
  • VitaGBX: $54 -> Multivitamins, minerals, and amino acids
  • OmMega: $40 -> Omega 3 supplement
  • GBX Protein: $54 -> Plant protein
  • GBX Superfood: $40 -> Superfood blend
  • GBX SeedFiber: $50 -> Seed blend that manages feelings of stress, tension, and anxiety
  • Amare Kids Pack: $198 -> Similar to the FundaMentals Pack but for kids
  • Kids FundaMentals: $90 -> Gut-brain axis support for kids and teens
  • Kids VitaGBX: $48 -> Multivitamins for kids
  • Kids Mood+: $60 -> Mood support, boosts stress resilience, cognitive performance, calmness, focus, and positivity

Amare Global Partner
Compensation Plan

The majority of MLM companies have so extremely complicated compensation plans that it feels like you need to have a rocket scientist doctorate to understand just their first paragraph.

Amare’s compensation plan is no exception…

Nonetheless, in order to make things easier for you,  I’ll try my best to get you up to speed.

So, Amare Global compensates its Partners in the following 7 different ways…

  1. Retail Commissions
  2. Personal Customer Volume Bonus
  3. Heart Start Program
  4. Me & Three Bonus
  5. Uni-Level Bonus
  6. Revenue Bonus Pools
  7. Go Forward Infinity Bonus

1. Retail Commissions

Amare’s Partners can purchase the company’s products at wholesale prices and re-sell them at retail prices (either online or offline).

Suggested retail prices are usually around 25% above wholesale prices but all Amare’s Partners are free to set their own selling price, as long as the price is above wholesale and the purchasers personally consume the products and do not resell them.

2. Personal Customer Volume Bonus

The Personal Customer Volume Bonus pays you 5% – 15% of and based on the amount of your monthly PV.

  • 0 – 499 PV = 0%
  • 500 – 999 PV = 5%
  • 1000 – 1499 = 10%
  • 1500+ = 15%

Moreover, you’ll earn an additional 5% of the PV generated by the customers your personally referred customers recruit through the Refer One, Get One (ROGO) program.

3. Heart Start Program

The Heart Start Bonus pays you a percentage of the orders placed during the first 60 days of all recruited Customers and Partners through a uni-level structure up to 3 Levels deep.

  • 1st Level = Personally recruited Customers/Partners – 20% commissions
  • 2nd Level = Customers/Partners recruited by Customers/Partners on your 1st Level – 10% commissions
  • 3rd Level = Customers/Partners recruited by Customers/Partners on your 2nd Level – 5% commissions

4. Me & Three Bonus

The Me & Three Bonus could pay you up to $385 ($135 + $250) per month if you meet the following qualifications:


  • Have at least 100 PV
  • Generate at least 600 PTV
  • Enroll at least 3 Customers or Partners who purchase at least 100 PV worth of products each on Subscribe & Save


  • Have at least 100 PV
  • Generate at least 600 PTV
  • Have at least 3 personally enrolled Partners who received $135 through the Me & Three

Amare Global Me & Three Bonus

PTV = The sum of the PV generated by you and your personally enrolled Partners

5. Uni-Level Bonus

The Uni-Level Bonus pays you a percentage of all the OV (Organizational Volume) through a uni-level structure up to 7 Levels of Partners deep.

The higher your rank, the higher the percentage of Organizational Volume that is paid per level and the more Levels you earn commissions through (see chart below).

Amare Global Uni-Level Bonus

OV (Organizational Volume) = The combined total of all PV generated by a Partner and their entire downline

6. Revenue Bonus Pools

How Much Does It Cost to Join Amare Global as a Partner?

In order to sign up as an Amare Global Partner, you’ll have to pay for a one-time $69.95 enrollment fee.

Purchasing the $69.95 enrollment fee grants you access to a Wellness Partner Kit that includes several marketing materials about Amare’s products and the science behind them, the company’s compensation plan and vision, training, replicated website, personal back office, etc. 

In addition, during your signup, you’ll be prompted to purchase a Launch Pack that costs $849.95 and contains $1608 worth of Amare Global products (retail value).

The Launch Pack is designated as a “Wellness Partners Exclusive” offer but it is entirely optional to purchase.

Is Amare Global a Pyramid Scheme?

Most of the time it’s very hard to distinguish between a legit MLM company and a pyramid scheme.

Make sure to watch the video below to discover how to spot and avoid pyramid schemes in general.

The main difference between a legit MLM and a pyramid scheme is that your income potential with a legit MLM is mostly based on selling the company’s actual products or services to retail customers while your income potential with a pyramid scheme is mostly or solely based on recruiting other people into the scheme.

Not all MLMs are legitimate. If the money you make through an MLM is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate one. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s not legit. It’s a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of their participants lose money. – Federal Trade Commission

Amare Global cannot be considered a pyramid scheme as its compensation plan seems to be maintaining a healthy balance between retail sales and recruitment.

First of all, the PV required to qualify for some of the company’s bonuses can be gathered both through personal purchases as well as through retail sales. What this means is that Partners don’t have to personally purchase Amare’s products to qualify for its bonuses as long as they keep selling its products.

The Refer One, Get One program whereas Amare Global awards customers for recruiting other customers is a testimony of the customer-centric nature of the company.

The same goes for the Me & Three Bonus whereas Partners are being awarded for getting customers or Partners to purchase Amare’s products on Subscribe & Save.

However, the Me & Three Bonus could be made a lot more retail-oriented by rewarding Partners only for the volume generated by their personally enrolled customers excluding the volume generated by their personally enrolled Partners.

Other than that minor potential adjustment, Amare Global’s compensation plan is pretty legit.

Even advancing through the company’s ranks doesn’t require that much recruitment…

In order to reach the company’s highest rank, the Five Heart Servant Leader, you only need to have 6 personally enrolled Partners who have reached the rank of Platinum Heart Mentor.

Amare Global doesn’t seem like a pyramid scheme at all!

Amare Global Pros

1. Free Replicated Website

Once you join Amare Global as a Partner, the company offers you the option to set up a free replicated website through your personal back office.

When people visit your replicated website and purchase Amare’s products through it, a percentage of what they pay will land in your pocket.

In addition, if someone signs up as a Partner for Amare Global through your replicated website you automatically become their sponsor, and they become part of your downline.

If marketed the right way, this replicated website could help you maximize your retail sales, recruits and thus your income.

If your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business – Bill Gates

2. Money-Back Guarantee

Amare Global offers a 12-month money-back guarantee to all product purchases made directly from the Amare Global corporate and replicated websites.

Research shows that money-back guarantees and refunds increase customers’ feelings of satisfaction with their purchases.

In addition, people are much more likely to buy products that have a money-back guarantee as well as purchase from the same seller that offered it in the future.

If leveraged the right way, Amare Global’s money-back guarantee could have a rather positive impact on your retail sales.

In addition, Amare Global offers a 30-day money-back guarantee to products purchased by its Partners.

You can read all about Amare’s Return & Refund Policies right here.

3. BBB Accredited & A+ Rating

BBB (Better Business Bureau) is a non-profit organization that ranks and accredits businesses, charities, and non-profit organizations based on several factors, such as

  • Legitimacy
  • Information gathered online
  • Complaints received from customers
  • Complaints resolved by the company
  • etc

Amare Global has been accredited with BBB since 2018.

This means that BBB has determined that Amare Global complies with the BBB Standards for Trust, eight principles that summarize important elements of creating and maintaining trust in any business.

In addition, Amare Global has received an A+ rating from BBB which is actually the highest possible rating.

While BBB is not an official business evaluator but rather an independent organization, the higher the BBB rating a company receives, the more credible and trustworthy it is considered.

Please note that Amare Global’s high BBB rating and accreditation isn’t definite proof neither that the company is indeed legit nor that it will help you achieve your financial goals..

It’s just a good sign!

4. Company Experiences Growth

According to, Amare Global made revenue of

  • $1 million in 2016 (launch)
  • $3 million in 2017
  •  and $4 million in 2018

This is a 300% growth from 2016 to 2017 and a 33% growth from 2017 to 2018.

Such growth is definitely an encouraging sign that the company is doing well and probably won’t tank at least for the next couple of years.

Amare Global Cons

1. It's Still an MLM

Aside from all its pros, Amare Global is still an MLM.

And I am not at all fond of the MLM business model in general for many reasons…

First of all, the percentage of MLM participants who never actually make a profit is awfully high (74% – 99%).

In addition, the majority of those who do manage to make a profit, earn no more than $5000 per year.

Secondly, I hate selling and recruiting…

And thirdly, I’ve heard so many stories of people losing friends, family, and money due to the pushy and sleazy practices they were being taught by their “mentors” that I have become repulsed by the MLM business model in general.

Being involved in an MLM company is just not worth the trouble in my mind.

Especially when there exist other much more legit ways of building a substantial income without having to turn into a sleazy salesperson jeopardizing your relationships with those around you because you can’t stop pitching them questionable products that they neither need nor want.

And truthfully, there’s not a single indication that Amare Global is any different from your average MLM in any way…

2. Complicated Compensation Plan

Heart Start Bonus, Levels, ROGO, Me & Three, uni-level structures, various percentages, different ranks, pools, shares, PV, PTV, OV, infinities, legs, yadda yadda yadda.

Seriously, Amare’s compensation plan is a mess.

A person who is newly introduced to the MLM business model doesn’t stand a chance of really grasping how to leverage it to actually make money.

This is no random occurrence though…

MLM companies make their compensation plans so complicated on purpose to “confuse” people into joining them.

It’s called “Complexity Bias” and it’s the tendency of people to trust complex concepts more than simple ones.

Marketers use complexity bias all the time to boost the sales of a product/service by incorporating confusing language or insignificant details into its packaging or sales copy.

MLM companies do the exact same thing with their compensation plans to get more people to join them.

And no, I am not making things up…

You can read all about complexity bias right here.

3. Expensive Enrollment Pack & Products

Although joining Amare Global as a Partner is relatively cheap at $66.95, the company’s Launch Pack, as well as its products, are quite expensive. 

Yes, purchasing the Launch Pack is indeed optional but let’s not kid ourselves here… You are not going to start earning money out of thin air…

Once you join Amare Global as a Partner, you are going to need to get your hands on products to make demonstrations and give away as samples to potential customers and recruits.

If you are serious about earning money with Amare Global, you’ll just HAVE to purchase the Launch Pack which costs $849.95

What happens when the products you got with your Launch Pack run out?

Well, you’ll have to personally purchase more products for demonstration and sampling purposes something that automatically translates to even more expenses. And you wouldn’t call Amare’s products cheap…

In addition, expensive products will probably be harder to sell as well.

Furthermore, if you want to increase your chances of success with Amare Global, you’ll have to consider using the products yourself as well.

The easiest way to sell a product is by showing the results you achieved by using it yourself.

More expenses right here…

What I am trying to point out here is to not get fooled by the very small $66.95 enrollment fee.

The subsequent expenses of actually running your Amare Global business will probably rise up to hundreds of dollars per month.

I don’t know about you but for me, that’s way too much money to invest in an MLM.

4. No Income Disclosure Statement

Amare Global has been operating for 4 years now and it hasn’t published a single Income Disclosure Statement yet.

Most of the time, MLM companies that have been operating for just a couple of years avoid publishing an IDS because they don’t have enough statistical data to put together an accurate one.

However, 4 years is more than enough for an MLM company to have gathered all the required data to accurately represent the average yearly income of its representatives.

I can safely assume that the reason behind this lack of an IDS is that the vast majority of Amare Global’s Partners are generating so little revenue that if made public, potential Partners would never actually bother to join the company.

On the other hand, all Income Disclosure Statements I’ve come across until now reveal the exact same thing – that the vast majority of MLM reps never actually make any profit and those who do make a profit, would have to throw an additional couple of bucks on top of it to buy a pizza.

I know, you know, and the trees in my backyard know that if Amare Global published an IDS tomorrow it would tell the exact same story…

The funny thing is that in its Policy Manual (Section 9.1 – A – VII), Amare Global states the following:

In an effort to conduct best business practices, Amare Global has developed the Income Disclosure Statement (“IDS”). The Amare Global IDS is designed to convey truthful, timely, and comprehensive information regarding the income that Amare Global Wellness Partners earn. In order to accomplish this objective, a copy of the IDS must be presented to all prospectiveWellness Partners.

But there’s no Income Disclosure Statement available… LOL 😛

5. Questionable Products

It’s undeniable that the Gut-Brain Axis is really a thing as it’s being researched as we speak.

The concept is definitely not an attempt of Amare Global to spawn a need out of nowhere and then present its products as the solution.

However, could Amare Global’s products really help balance this Gut-Brain Axis and make people experience optimal mental states?

Maybe… Who knows…

I believe that just like with most wellness-related supplements distributed by MLM companies, some people will experience positive results after using Amare’s products while others will not experience any results whatsoever.

After all, the health claims Amare Global makes about its products cannot be substantiated in any way. The company itself discloses that its products and their benefits have neither been evaluated nor approved by the FDA.

6. Lawsuit Against Founder

In 2004, Dr. Shawn Talbott, lead product researcher, and developer and one of Amare’s executive founders had a lawsuit filed against him by the FTC for making unsubstantiated product claims and using deceptively formatted infomercials in pitching dietary supplements (CortiSlim & CortiStress) in his previous company Window Rock Enterprises, Inc.

The FTC alleges that Window Rock Enterprises made advertising claims about CortiSlim’s ability to cause rapid, substantial, and permanent weight loss in all users and that CortiStres could reduce the risk of or prevent, osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.

All of those claims were overblown and completely unsubstantiated.

In 2005, Dr. Shawn Talbott and the other two defendants had to pay $4.5 million to settle the FTC’s lawsuit charges.

This is definitely not the type of lawsuit you would like to see having been filed against the co-founder and lead scientist of an MLM that manufactures and distributes mental wellness supplements.

While this lawsuit took place more than 10 years ago, can anyone ensure us that Dr. Shawn Talbott doesn’t make similarly unsubstantiated claims about Amare’s products as well?


Amare Global MLM Review Summary



Amare Global provides no Income Disclosure Statement. 74 – 99% of all MLM reps either lose or make no money.



Marketing materials, training, free replicated website, personal back office.



Amare Global is quite affordable to join. Business expenses could rise up to hundreds of dollars per month.



Amare Global is definitely NOT a pyramid scheme. It’s products are kinda questionable.

Overall Rating


Is Amare Global Suggested?

Truthfully, I would try some of Amare’s products at some point myself just out of curiosity…

The good news is that the company is definitely not a pyramid scheme.

Despite the complicated nature of its compensation plan, Amare Global manages to maintain a pretty healthy balance between retail sales and recruitment…

The payout of the company’s bonuses, as well as their qualifications, are mostly based on either your or your downline’s PV which is generated solely through retail sales.

In addition, you are not really obligated to personally place monthly orders to remain active, or qualify for certain bonuses or earn higher commissions percentages, etc.

In simpler words, your income potential as a Partner for Amare solely depends on your retail sales in conjunction with the retail sales of your downline.

As mentioned earlier, even advancing through the company’s ranks doesn’t require that much recruiting on your part.

If you have been looking for a legit, retail-oriented MLM company for a while, Amare Global might be one of the few…

The main downside of Amare Global is that it hasn’t published an Income Disclosure Statement.

This could be an indication that the company is trying to hide the fact that the vast majority of its Partners earn very little to no money.

If this kind of “business opportunity” seems to work for you, then, good luck with your launch!

If not, check out a better money-making opportunity right here.

    Thanks for your great review. I have a friend who is heavily involved in Amare. She is making money but is working her head off. Personally, I don’t think it’s worth it, but I’ll let her make her choice.

    I just wanted to let you know that the science guy you mentioned above is named Shawn, not Scott.

    Thanks again.

    1. Hi Julie, thanks a lot for sharing. I truly hope that your friend becomes one of the very few people that succeed in MLM.

      Thanks a lot for the heads up regarding the name. It was just a typo.

      All the best and stay safe,


  2. Actually to the contrary, it’s totally substantiated because most people that join a network marketing company never sponsor anyone!
    So then why did they join? They joined because somebody introduced a product to them. What companies are doing now is making it mandatory that people first join as customers so that way we can clear up the confusion for you. Only if they start sponsoring have they considered an affiliate!

    1. Actually, on the contrary, it’s absolutely unsubstantiated… Show me the actual numbers that back up your claim. The fact that you believe it to be true doesn’t mean that it’s actually true.

      The whole basis of becoming involved in an MLM is to generate commissions on the sales of multiple levels of distributors in your downline (hence the term Multi-Level Marketing).

      MLM without recruiting and building a downline is not MLM, it’s more like affiliate marketing.

      Most people who join a network marketing company never sponsor anyone not out of choice but rather out of inability to gather recruits.

      That’s exactly why according to those MLM stats, 99% of all MLM participants lose money.

      Please stop going around spreading misinformation because you literally become part of the problem.


  3. Thanks for your review, I decided after reading it to go ahead and give it a shot! I have to tell you that this honestly is the first MLM I have been with that the products really are as good as they claim!

    And the prices have been drastically reduced compared to what you reported. The market is not oversaturated yet, so it does have potential! I hit the rank of silver my first month, and Gold for my second, which has a guaranteed income of $2000 a month for 6 months. I have been with Amare for almost 3 months.

    I have also earned our yearly trip, all-expense-paid for 2!

    Thank you for the honest review, but it has gotten much better since your original one!

    You should try some products! The retention rate of customers is about 88% personally mine is about 95!!!!

    1. Hey Kellie, thanks a lot for sharing your experience as an Amare Global Partner. It sounds that you’re doing pretty well!

      I’ll definitely schedule this review for an update since Amare has undergone such drastic changes as per your claims.

      All the best,


  4. Hey, I appreciate your review. If you hate selling and recruiting, that might explain why you don’t like MLM.

    Most people that join a network marketing company join to use the product they don’t join to make big money. It’s a performance profession. The ones who perform best get paid best. That’s fair!

    1. Hey Jeff, indeed, one of the many reasons that I don’t like the MLM business model is because it involves a lot of selling and recruiting.

      Your claim that people don’t join MLMs to make big money but rather use their products is completely unsubstantiated as there’s no research or study anywhere online to back it up.

      The vast majority of MLM participants I’ve personally interacted with have joined their respective MLMs because someone marketed them the business model as a way of attaining financial, time, and location freedom.

      That’s another thing I don’t like about MLMs – the unrealistic claims they make to draw unsuspected victims in.

      All the best,
