Yes, you’ve probably guessed, there have been some big changes at Truvy which was formally called TruVision Health.
A re-branding exercise!
So if you found it strange searching for TruVision Health only to be taken straight into their new branded website Truvy.com, then that’s the reason why.
For a company who is supposed to be doing so well, this re-branding just doesn’t sit well with me.
Who am I to judge, but I thought getting the word out there and becoming established takes a lot of work, patience and time, and now, not only are they going to have to convince people about this decision, but isn’t it like starting afresh?
Weight gains affect us all, and we see so many diets and dietary products out there with a massive portion of them just doing nothing, but we are still prepared to take a stab at the next in-product.
I am in no way associated with Truvy.com and therefore I reserve judgment and will keep an open mind and be as unbiased as I can, giving you the facts for you to decide on your own merit.
All the same, we are here to review Truvy or is it TruVision Health, so let’s get on with it.

What is Truvy about and who are the founders?Truvy formerly TruVision Health was founded by Travis Martin, Shawn Gibson, and Derek Baily in 2014 and are located in Utah in the US.
They are an MLM or “multi-level-marketing” business in the Health and Wellness niche promoting products for weight loss along with supplementary products for your health.
For anybody who doesn’t know what an MLM is, I would suggest reading this article I wrote first before continuing.
For those who are interested there is a business opportunity that you can get involved with and we’ll be discussing that a little later on.
You might be asking, why the change of company name that so many people associated with and loved as TruVision Health?
I mean they are successful and reports tell me they generated $100 million in 2019.
Coming from 30 years working across many businesses in a software development capacity re-branding tells me one thing and one thing only.
If you check the reasoning behind the change, then they say it’s a much-needed makeover to take the company into the future.
They say that “Tru” retains the original name followed by “vy” which means “to compete”
Some say, “It’s softer, hipper and a lot easier to remember”
I personally think “TruVision Health”, tells me exactly who and what they are about rather than “Truly” that says what?
We turn Skeptics into FANS, well I reserve judgement.
Is Truvy a Pyramid Scheme?
Before we get into this review let’s just clear a few things up because people are always indicating that MLM type businesses are pyramid schemes without doing any research at all.
MLM businesses carry this stigma around with them because of the way some MLM businesses choose to operate.
Due to the compensation plan, which operates in a pyramid style (hence why people get the pyramid scheme from).
What you should know is that businesses, in general, operate in a pyramid style fashion and therefore this is nothing out of the ordinary.
I can categorically tell you that Truvy is not a pyramid scheme because they for one have an extensive product line. So nothing to hide behind there!
Now, that is out of the way, let’s continue…
Let’s look at the Truvy products range
At the last count, I found 126 products available through the Truvy website, which sort of makes for an extensive product range.
So, let’s go ahead and check out the new product line that was either re-branding of an old product or the real deal.
- New Truvy 30-day Combo Pack
“Tru” according to Truly, supports the blood chemistry which originates from their “famous” truFIX formula.
“Vy” (pronounced vee) is their powerhouse product packed with ingredients that “can” make you feel more naturally energized. Body fat optimization, which suppresses your appetite without you feeling starved.
- Truvy Must-Haves
Same as the above with the addition of …
- Truvy’s grape super drink
- 30 day supply of reNU Detox Which claims to support body detoxification and helps to maintain a healthy digestive system.
- New Truvy Share Pack
What about getting enough to share around with your friends and family.
Truvy’s most popular product range
Interested to see the CBD product where according to Truvy, the best way to administer CBD Oil and that’s in a patch form.
After researching many CBD companies this is the first time I have come across this way of administering CBD oil. Interesting though!
The Truvy products are in categories listed below…
- Most Popular
- TVH Staples
- Crafted Healthy
- Samples Packages
- By Nature
- TVH Labs
- Last Chance
The extensive Truvy products range with current prices
Why not head over to the Truvy website to check out their product range in more detail before you think of purchasing or before you consider Truvy as a good business opportunity.
Truvy Business Opportunity – What you need to know
OK, first and foremost, why the rebranding?
Is it to get rid of any stigmas that may be hanging around and to give them a clean bill of health, so to speak?
Is it to bring the company into the future with a hip sort of name like I’m hearing?
I don’t know about you but TruVision Health tells me exactly what this company is about, Truvy tells me nothing.
I did find some interesting reading on the FDA website, that’s the Federal Drug Administration for the years 2015 and 2017. Check it out if you’d like.
All said and done, plenty of people are saying great things about the products and the company, which would have been under the previous name of TruVision Health and not Truvy. For the time being anyway!
The reviews can be found on the GOOGLE MY BUSINESS platform and to get there you would need to type into Google the company name along with the locality.
Don’t try and enter Truvy Utah because nothing will appear. You have to enter TruVision Health Utah. That’s until the re-branding has fully been completed.
How to Make Money With Truvy
Just like all MLM businesses you become an associate or distributer and in many cases there is a fee to be paid. Varies from MLM to MLM.
I understand that to become a Truvy Associate it is free.
Normally 3 ways to make money as an associate…
- Purchase the products yourself.
- Market to your customers.
- Recruit others to join your team, in which case any products sold by your team you will earn a commission from.
This all adds to your PV (Personal volume)
Here you can check out the Truvy compensation Plan for yourself
I’m not going to describe the compensation plan like many do because it can change at any time. Suffice to say, it is pretty straight forward anyway.
You can either click the image below for an explanation of the Truvy Compensation Plan or you could check out the documentation which simplifies it more here.
What others say about Truvy
I do find it a little strange that you can’t find customer reviews on the normal 3rd party review sites.
There is not even a facility on the new Truvy website either to store reviews to promote who they really are. An opportunity missed don’t you think?
Like I mentioned earlier you can find Truvy reviews under their former name and 5 stars but don’t get excited because you are not going to find any negative reviews on there.
But not all is lost because I did find some reviews under the new re-branded name…
So, can a business be that good? 5 stars throughout!
What I like about Truvy
- Free to become an associate
- The compensation plan is pretty straight forward, not like some MLMs I have come across in the past.
- Reviews are extremely positive.
What I don’t like about Truvy
- Re-branding, from TruVision Health which tells me who they are to Truvy that doesn’t! This is a massive change for any company and very rarely executed.
Can open up all sorts of problems with credibility my number one.
- Whilst I did find some reviews under the new name of Truvy, I couldn’t find any in the normal manner, through 3rd party websites where they can be believed more. Anything controlled by a company can also be influenced by them too.
- Not accredited with BBB, even under their former name TruVision Health.
- Products are expensive.
- Only the top 1-2% really make any money in an MLM, period.
- What you will normally find is that between 50% and 65% will have left and moved onto something else by the time the 12 months is up. Therefore there will always be an emphasis to replenish your team and recruit more. There, the cycle continues.
- A total lack of training for anybody who hasn’t a clue about selling and marketing and who doesn’t come with experience in this business model.
It’s supposed to be the responsibility of your sponsor to guide and teach you, but if they come with no experience (and they normally do) then that leaves you on your own.
Even if they do come with experience, knowledge is very rarely passed on and besides what normally happens is your sponsor is preoccupied trying to recruit more people.
This is not unique to Truvy, it’s just how these businesses operate.
Is Truvy a SCAM or is TruVision Health a Scam?
This is a popular search criterion, for many when researching a company, product or business opportunity, and one I hate.
Yes, I know a little strange but so is re-branding.
Everything sort of starts from the beginning again and opens up a whole lot of questions if you are considering getting involved.
Based on my research which mainly is covering the TruVision Health name I couldn’t find anything to suggest that TriVision health or Truvy is a scam.
It does, sort of depend on what you class as a SCAM?
They have been operating since 2014 and have an extensive product range, that people are raving about, however, the products are on the expensive side.
Is Truvy a Worthy Business to get involved with?
MLM’s, in general, are hardball and Truvy is no different.
If you come from a sales background and know-how to market this type of business, then go for it.
Coming from experience with a couple of MLM’s, I would not recommend this type of business for newbies coming into the “Make Money Online” niche. But, you can obviously ignore my advice!
I wasted several years going down this MLM route with promises of getting rich and listening to all that BS which simply does not work!
Why should you believe me?
I’m not trying to sell you something so does that make you suspicious?
Just offering the facts for you to decide!
What you need to know
All MLM’s rely on “Landing-pages” which are a basic webpage which in many cases will be given to you, so you along with 100s or 1000s will have the same landing page to market.
When/if you leave, you leave with nothing unless you already had a website.
One, two, three years of hard work could all be down the pan!
After wasting a number of years, I found that Affiliate Marketing is the route to take
Probably the best training platform online is Wealthy Affiliate, who specializes in affiliate marketing and they can provide you with the training.
A training platform designed around newbies and covers everything.
From creating your website, hosting, 24/7/365 security backup and support, knowing your crowd and competition, keyword research. SEO, weekly live training, plus 100s of training courses in video and text format, not to mention a community that goes beyond anything I have come across before.
What’s more, it’s free!
You are obviously looking for an online business, then why not do it the right way and don’t rely on others to do the work.

OK, I must apologise for the confusion, but that is exactly what happens when companies change direction and end up creating unnecessary problems.
Anyway, all said and done I hope you enjoyed this review.
Any questions for me or you’d maybe like to tell us your story. Where are you at? Are you considering the MLM route? Do you have any experiences with MLMs?
Go on, don’t be shy. Why not share your experiences, I’d like to know.
Until next time, stay safe.
