GNLD Review- Do These Health Supplements Really Work?

By Summer Banks Jun 08, 2017

I’m obsessed with finding diet supplements that actually work. Let’s find out if GNLD products fall into this group. We did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the side effects, ingredients, scientific research and level of customer care. We additionally read dozens of user comments and responses that are posted online. Lastly, we compressed all of the data we collected to give you the info you really need.

GNLD Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Dietspotlight Burn.

What is GNLD?

To begin, GNLD is also known as NeoLife. This is a brand of health supplements for men and women. These products address weight management, vitality, skin care, immune system health, digestion, anti-aging and other concerns. Some of the key ingredients in these formulas include amino acids, gotu kola, vitamins and minerals, protein, garcinia cambogia, gymnema sylvestre, bladderwrack, dandelion leaf and cayenne pepper. You can purchase these products through third-party dealers like Amazon.

From what we gathered, GNLD International, LLC has been around since 1969. This business is located in Freemont, CA. They have a good BBB rating and offer a wide range of supplements. Furthermore, there are some positive customer comments posted on the web for these health products, but read on…

High Prices – “Can You Afford It?”

One issue we have is with the steep prices. “The GNLD NeoLife Shake will cost you $63.99 for only 15 servings. If you use this twice a day, it will only last one week. Clearly this will become very expensive,” commented our Research Editor.

One customer stated, “How does anyone afford the NeoLife Shake? I tried the chocolate, but definitely can’t afford to buy this several times a month. Yikes.”

However, a different user posted, “Makes me a bit dizzy, but I like the taste.”

Another commented, “It’s comparable to other protein shakes. Nothing special, but not bad either.”

Fad Ingredients – “A Problem?”

Another concern we have is with GNLD ingredients. We noticed that some of these supplements contain fads like garcinia cambogia, which are not backed by any solid science. One customer reported, “Tried the GR2 Control Thermogenic Enhancer. Does not help with weight-loss like it claims to. Waste of money.”

On the other hand, a different user had this to say, “This product gives me an energy boost. I’m guessing it has some caffeine in it.”

“Not sure about this diet product. Have experienced a few GNLD side effects like nausea and stomach pains,” mentioned another.

According to our research, if there is a certain aspect of a diet supplement that is quite burdensome or difficult (high prices, fad ingredients, unpleasant taste) the likelihood of long-term success is slim. So, if GNLD products do in fact cost too much for many people to afford, this could be a real dilemma.

The Science – “Any Provided?”

We took a close look at the official website for GNLD supplements, but could not find any solid clinical research to support these products. This is unfortunate, because we at DietSpotlight like to see some actual science that backs up the formulas and the ingredients they contain.

The Bottom Line – Does GNLD Work?

So, should you whip out your credit card and order a GNLD supplement? Well, to start with, we like that all of these products are easy to purchase online. It’s also nice to see that ingredient labels and user instructions are presented on the official website. Then again, we have some reservations about these formulas because they are not supported by any documented research. Also, we’re concerned about the high prices.

If you’re serious about shedding pounds, then we encourage you to choose a product that contains clinically tested ingredients for weight-loss, does not contain any fad components and will not break your bank account.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. It uses a combination of four powerful ingredients, which have been shown in published clinical studies to help speed up fat loss and kick-start metabolism. They are not fads. Be aware that we can’t find any negative talk or discouraging comments, and the user feedback online shows people are seeing amazing results.

The makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so certain of their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

Previous GNLD Review (Updated September 25, 2012):

What You Should Know

GNLD is a multi level marketing company that sells nutritional supplements and water filters. Multi level marketing companies sell their products through individual distributors who buy their products from higher level distributors and also make money from building a distribution network below them. You can find their products online, and to name a few are GNLD Cleansing and Detox, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Digestion, Fiber and Memory and Heart Health. We are always concerned when first reviewing diet and beauty products sold through this method as we frequently find that the company spend so much energy and time focusing on the distribution network that the quality of the products takes a back seat. We will have a more indepth look below at some of GNLD's products to see if they live up to the hype. GNLD's supplement products fall under four main categories: Nutritionals, Weight Loss, Herbals, Skin & Personal Care, and Home Care. We will focus on GNLD's Weight Loss line for this review. We will focus on GNLD's Weight Loss line for this review. Products include: Bio-Tone Trimming System, Enersine, and several versions of the GR 2 Controller, including shakes, bars, and chews. Products cannot be purchased directly from the GNLD website but must be bought through a distributor. The website locates local representatives for you. None of the prices are listed on the website which makes it difficult for consumers to determine the c cost or value of the products before discussing it with a representative. We find that most consumers prefer to have as much information as possible before being solicited to purchase.


Varies based on the products chosen.

Product Features

GNLD's weight loss products have different ingredients but one common one is arginine. Arginine has some clinical support showing that it aids in boosting metabolism, which in turn can burn stored fat more efficiently. Another common ingredient is ornithine which is an amino acid that works together with arginine. Clinical studies appear to support mixed results as to the use of these two substances on muscle building and fat burning. The GNLD website does not provide any links to clinical studies supporting their effectiveness. There is nothing that really stands out for us in the GNLD weight loss formulations. The ingredients are common to middle of the pack products and the products lack some key ingredients that we always look for in effective weight loss aids. These ingredients include green tea extract and caffeine, both of which are clinically proven to produce a thermogenic response in the body which increases metabolism. The GNLD website does not thoroughly explain each ingredient and its function in the formulations. We do like that they have included the Supplement Facts label to outline exactly what is in each product.


  • May contain some ingredients which may help with weight loss.


  • No money back guarantee offered.
  • Does not contain several key effective ingredients.
  • Not available for purchase on website.
  • No pricing available until after consumer has spoken to a distributor.


We find the GNLD weight loss products to remain buried in the vast mountain of weight loss aids on the market today. The formulations do not appear to be cutting edge or particularly potentially effective. The GNLD website is just as focused on explaining the benefits of being a distributor as it is with the products themselves. We were disappointed to find no money back guarantee offered. We like to see a guarantee because it not only helps the consumer buy with confidence knowing that they can return it if it doesn't work out but it also shows that the manufacturer stands behind its products.

Look at you tube for talks by founder of Neolife a top scientist. All supplements backed by scientific research! This review is not accurate.


Can GNLD Biotone be used during the day? it says to use in the evening before bedtime, why?

Devon (Editor)

The company recommends it to be taken at night for mainly two reasons; because, first, you are to take it with a stomach that’s been empty for ideally 3 hours, which would likely overlap with your bed time. The second is because the ingredients set to work on metabolic processes that only take place during your sleep cycle, like repair and growth.


What combination of the supplement can i take for hormonal imbalance or high polactin?

Victoria (Editor)

Hi! Because of these conditions, please make sure to consult with your physician before starting a new weight-loss program or product.

Victoria (Editor)

Hi! Because of possible interactions with other products, please make sure to consult with your physician before taking products together.


I use to buy TRE-EN-EN product but now am 23 weeks pregnant am I allowed to drink it.

Devon (Editor)

Please ask your doctor if it would negatively affect your body. Luckily Tre-en-en is not known to conflict with nursing or pregnant mothers.


Does neo life shake really work for weight loss?


It does if followed by recommended food that must be taken along with it

Brittney Quintana

The shakes themselves are not meant to make you lose weight. One shake has all the whole food nutrition you need for one meal.
If you are looking to lose weight, the weight loss pack provides shakes for 2 meals a day, breakfast and lunch, for a month. If you stick to this, have small, healthy, organic snacks in between and a good dinner (protein and veggies) then you will lose weight.
There’s also a HUGE emphasis on eating organic. The label should have an outside company verifying that it’s organic. USDA Organic and NonGMO Project are the two most common.


Well then. If that’s the case then there’s no point taking this supplement because without them you can still loss weight with the diet instructions


Hi! For detailed product and usage information, please refer to the GNLD official website to learn more.

I took the shake to my nutrition dr. and he discovered that the shake causes inflammation in me, something I have been dealing with and cutting out inflammatory foods. Thankfully I did not take GNLD’s reps word that this would be good for me. It might be greater for some, but not for all..


Will the gnld neo life Aloe vera gel Nutriance help with stretch marks?


Hello KevinY, All users are different and can experience different results.

Devon (Editor)

Hi, Silas. GNLD products do not claim to cure Bronchitis, nor could we find clinical trials of Bronchitis patients being treated with it.

Stephen (Editor)

Do you have any allergies to speak of, Jaedy? Have your doctor go over this formula with you.

Dupe (Verified User)

Stephen (Editor)

Peris, I don’t wish to alarm you but it would be best to seek professional medical attention regarding this matter.

Onome B. O (Verified User)

Pls which GNLD product can cure Gonorreah? I already started taking TRE-EN-EN Which was prescribed after taking the quantum test but I think I need more products to actually cleanse or detoxify my system.


Gonorreah cannot be cured by using vitamins. Only medical doctors can prescribe the proper medications. Remember that medications take time. Also, please understand that there is no such thing as “detoxifying” STDs are serious deseases and have nothing to do with “toxins”

Cameron (Editor)

It would be best to see a doctors help to cure an STD.


Is it possible for gnld products to revive chronic kidney failure?


Hi Emmanuel, I know a person who has been living on one kidney for 40+ years and has been doing Neolife that long.

Stephen (Editor)

We have not run into this concern before. In such cases it would be best to ask your doctor.

  Is this safe with other medications?

Are there any side effects of using GNLD Neolife shake when someone is using Atripla? WHat about Calmag, Full Motion, Phytodefense, AMitone? I heard that herbal supplements can have negative effects in combination with these drugs.

Devon (Editor)

Lydia, We’ve not encountered side effects with these specific supplements and GNLD, but what’s most important is that your doctor gives the O.K. to combine these products.

Karen (Editor)

Hi Victor. Red meats and food high in protein help incraese blood flow and virility. If you’re looking for a product that does that you might want to see Pronabolin

Turnlogun, Your presentation appeared mockery, so what’s wrong if every one turns? Do u v a book call “where there’s no doctor?”. Aside that GNLD supplement are not drugs but can also be abuse just like drugs so when u take it accordingly help doctors to lack jobs if there are not creative. GNLD SUPPLEMENT Don’t need doctors my tight man, it need dcepline. I am with KEDI HEALTH CARE


Tell us your thoughts about GNLD.
Who told you that? GNLD products are the food that heals. Since 1948 no report has come in negative side of GNLD. NeoLife produce is the betters and people learn from us. It is only GNLD FADB and World Health Organization doesn’t regulate our products because our products are based in Nature Backed by science.If you can’t fight us joint us.

   its just nature and science in bottle
Lianna Marie (Verified User)

I first started taking GNLD products when I was 3 months pregnant. My mom is a GNLD distribuitor, so I have easy access to this products. haha
I didn’t even feel pregnant, i mean, sure the belly was huge, but i felt amazing. Amazing hair, skin, nails, and well energized. My son is now 2 yrs of age and hes been taking liqui-vite and Salmon Plus, and let me tell ya’ll that he is an extremely smart boy. Has only gotten sick once in his life, so far. I take CAL-MAG, SALMON OIL PLUS, LIPOTROPIC ADJUNCT,PHYTO-DEFENSE, and NEOLIFE SHAKES. I’m feeling great. While every one is over here falling down with the flu, I’m just here drinking my tea comfortably. hehe I love these products. I swear they have magic powers… nah, its just nature and science in a bottle. (;


I want to know if Tre-en-en has any effect on head injury.I had a car accident and sustained injury and was perfectly healed afterward.A year after,one of ur distributors introduced Tre-en-en to me, wen I started taking it I had a relapse so i stopped taking it. Could u pls explain what effect it has on head injury? Or do u have any of ur supplement dat will be good for me


Hi Toun,

I doubt the tre-en-en product would have caused this. I would try omega 3 salmon oil plus for your head injury.


I join Gnld July last year. Me and my wife use tre-en-en, Provitality plus, tre, neo-cal, Neolife tea, rasp-eleven and the shakes these products are amazing. They keeps us healthy and energised. Let me know if you need some more

  Im a breastfeeding mom

Im a breastfeeding mom, taking omega 3 salmon oil while breastfeeding and carotenoids are the best to keep your babies away from flu… and its the best for both mother and baby’s health!

   i tried the product
bert (Verified User)

i am just a friend of a GNLD registered who was convinced of the product, at first i thought just of buying the product to at least make my friend happy , but when i tried the product it works really for me, i am always energetic and accomplshed my job succesfully without stressss, i always feel enthusiasm towards fulilling my work, and one day i approached him because i wanted to register to get discounted when buying the products, i hate selling, i just registered myself in the company to get best prices for my family’s consumption

   i was really a sickly type
marie (Verified User)

when i was still single, i was really a sickly type, i was petite and i usualy suffer from colds, flu and cough. i used to take over the counter synthetic medicines,when i met my husband my life has changed specifically my health, he used to be GNLD director in our city though the product is not that known, his costumers became so loyal because of the powerful effect of these products, he never failed to let me take such supplements and to my surprise i am not longer thesickly one who used to get colds n flu easily, and finally when i got pregnant with our first child up to the third i cannot let gnld products be out of my system, it is truly the best supplement i have ever encounter that gives me full energy, good health and healthymind and heart, and my kids are so heathy too since breastfed them and they are also taking the vita squares supplements . i also sared this to my co tchers and they became my loyal costumers too. my husband and i dont use the products for business anymore but a means of sharing these to those whom we care about..

  How much money can you make with it?
Angela Kenton

How much money can you make with GNLD and how do you get paid


Hi Angela, you can make a lot of money if you willing to put in the time. You can make a profit by buying at wholesale and selling at retail and by the volume of purchases within your network – this is where the serious money is… If you focus on getting people to use the products, the money will come as people will generally become repeat customers as the products work!

  Loved the product.

  Loved the product.
citigan2012 (Verified User)

I have been using GNLD for many years. YES it is pricey but it is the best on the market. Their digestive enzymes work fast , their protein powder is above any other I have tried ( 9 spinal surgeries so exercise is important for me as is protein) Their VIT C threshold controlled when I feel something coming on I take 3,000 mg twice a day and whatever it is never comes on and it does not hurt my stomach nor cause any other problems like other c’s do.
Their fish oil is pure, non toxic and no mercury…I have had no knee pain since being on the Salmon oil plus for 3 yrs.
Yes there are cheaper things on the market but do they work. Not like the protein powders here nor the Vit C….

  Yes you can become distributer
Vince (Verified User)

Yes you can become distributer, that would be better since you are regular user of GNLD products, that means you can save money in purchasing those products that you’re using right now..
