Is Nature’s Sunshine a scam, pyramid scheme, or is this a legitimate Home Based Business Opportunity?

In this Nature’s Sunshine Review, I will be reviewing both Nature’s Sunshine products, and their business opportunity to help you answer this key question for yourself.

This is my unbiased Nature’s Sunshine Review.

Company Details & History

Natures Sunshine Logo imageNature’s Sunshine begins with a very unique story.  Back in the early 1970s, Gene Hughes was plagued by a nagging stomach condition, a problem that he had been suffering from for some time.  A neighbor of his suggested that he try cayenne pepper, and to his amazement, it was the miracle cure.  However, Gene Hughes could not bear swallowing a spoonful of cayenne pepper on a daily basis.  Gene’s wife then came up with the revolutionary idea of putting the powder into an easy-to-swallow gelatin capsule.

This idea led to the foundation of Nature’s Sunshine in 1972, being the first company to ever encapsulate herbs.

From that simple act of putting an herb into a capsule, Nature’s Sunshine very quickly became an enormous enterprise, currently offering more than 475 unique herbal formulas.  Their extensive product line is offered exclusively through nearly 600K Distributors in 30 international markets around the world.

Product Line

Nature’s Sunshine offers vitamins and minerals related to amino acids, antioxidants, body cleanse solutions, brain health, digestion, enzymes, essential oils, herbs, personal care, energy, and so many more.

MLM Business – Getting started

Nature's Sunshine Products imageNature’s Sunshine offers their MLM business opportunity for free for the first year when you make a $40 product purchase.

Questions that must be asked…

They advertise two Compensation Plans to meet the needs of their individual members.  I was unable to verify if an additional product purchase or enrollment into an AutoShip Program (or both) would be required to maximize your earning potential within their Compensation Plan.

This is usually the case in MLM businesses if you wish to earn the maximum amount of commissions and/or bonuses.  I encourage you to talk with a Distributor directly to ensure that you have all of the details.

Building the business…

As a Nature’s Sunshine Distributor, you will have the option to utilize any business style that meets your goals and/or talents.

You can sell products directly through those whom you come in contact with, open a physical retail store, attract online shoppers through a personalized website, or build relationships and partner with health professionals.

Nature’s Sunshine Review Conclusion

In my opinion, Nature’s Sunshine is a very legitimate business.  This is not a scam.

Nature’s Sunshine offers more than 600 products, featuring more than 475 unique formulas, proving their legitimacy in this multi-billion dollar health and wellness industry.  These products are consumable, offering you a tremendous opportunity to earn repeat business from loyal customers.

If you possess the desire to build a health and wellness home business, I believe that Nature’s Sunshine offers high quality products with the training and support to help you succeed.
