Qivana Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


The results of my research into Qivana were somewhat interesting. We decided to do one of our in-depth reviews, to take a closer look at the ingredients, side effects, clinical facts and customer service. We went on to read hundreds of user testimonials from across the internet. Then, we summarized and condensed it all to give you the information you need.

What is Qivana?

Firstly, Qivana is a direct sales business with a number of products related to weight-loss and health overall. For the purpose of this review, we are going to take a closer look at the metabolism program that includes: Shake, Stick, Boost and Relief. Each is formulated to be taken with other supplements. Ingredients are not listed for all of them, but some contain decaffeinated green tea, cayenne pepper and l-carnitine. You can take these with you wherever you go, a good thing.

The official website does not provide any information about when the company was founded. We like that they manufacturer a number of products that can be used together, but read on…

No Prices are Listed – “How Much?”

The first thing that caught our attention about Qivana ingredients what that no price was listed. “With the lack of information for all products, combined with the fact there are no prices listed publicly, we are not sure what the dieter would take a chance on the line.” said our Research Editor.

“Qivana is a rip off. Their products never show up in the mail, you call them argue with them and they say it’s backordered, then that your product was mailed, ” said one user.

”Very expensive. Horrible after taste, and no different than any other shake along with a green tea supplement and some determination,” reveals another.

MLM Business Opportunity – “A Problem”

Overall, the company seems to be far more focused on promoting affiliate sales and starting businesses with the Qivana name than selling the products to customers directly. The problem with most MLM business opportunities is the expensive startup costs, combined with the difficulty of purchasing smaller quantities of the supplement ideal for one person to use.

One user said, “The focus is on recruiting, not product sales. And the teams now claims product cures everything from MS to Diabetes.”

”I’m taking the boost and I really don’t feel a difference, I’ve even been getting calls to join their team… but putting out more money first? no Thanks!.” said another.

Our research indicates that if there’s part of a diet program that’s annoying, like being repeatedly invited to join the business, customers will have a harder time maintaining use of the product. If Qivana is more about sales than results, dieters will soon turn away.

The Science Behind Qivana – “Proven?”

Because of the lack of information regarding ingredients in the formulas, we are unable to determine whether or not there is any science to support them. At DietSpotlight if we are unable to verify the scientific research behind products, we see red flags.

What Users Are Saying

"”Excellent product. My son, who has a history of Crohn’s Disease, says it is the only one he has tried that reduces stomach gurgles, balances his GI tract and in the end helps him to gain weight.”"

"”After using different probiotics, these have met all my needs.”"

"”Haven’t been on it long enough yet. It takes the body alittle time to do what it’s suppose to do, depending how sluggish your intestine is. I usually give a product three months to evaluate whether it works for me.”"

The Bottom Line – Does Qivana Work?

Well, are we already in the car running off for this one? We were initially excited to review Qivana, as it looked as though it may be a promising company with a good supplement. However, because they do not provide full ingredient information or pricing and seemed overly concerned with building the business rather than selling the products, we do not feel comfortable suggesting the line to dieters.

If you’d like to drop some weight, we recommend buying a supplement that gives you safe and effective ingredients at an affordable price so you get value for your money. One that is not associated with an MLM opportunity.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. It is made with a unique blend of four clinically proven ingredients known to help support metabolism and increased fat burning power. As we researched, we could not find mention of negative side effects, but we were able to locate reports of users seeing great results.

We’re thrilled to see the makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so confident in their product they’re giving new customers a Special Trial Offer, which is always a good sign

What You Should Know About Qivana

Qivana created the Metaboliq program to help dieters achieve weight loss success. There are four supplements within the Metaboliq line by Qivana: Shake, Stick, Boost and Relief. In each of these supplements you have different roducts: QORE, Metaboliq, Prime and Skinshft. Each is formulated to be taken with other supplements in the program. Qivana also formulated the Qore program. Qore contains four supplements: Probiotic, Essentials, Defense and Detox.

Testimonials for the Metaboliq and Qore system are available on the official website. Before and after photos are included with some of the testimonials. The testimonials support weight loss claims, but there is no mention of exercise and eating habits while taking the product. Products are not available for sale from the official website.

List of Ingredients in Qivana

Shake - no ingredients.

Stick - no ingredients.

Boost - Decaffeinated green tea, cayenne pepper and L-carnitine tartrate.

Resist - Indian herb to block sweet tastes.

Product Features

Metaboliq includes Shake, Stick, Boost and Resist. Shake contains 200 calories. Dieters are supposed to use shake as a meal replacement. Stick also contains 200 calories and works as a meal replacement.

Boost contains three ingredients. Green tea is proven to increase metabolism and weight loss, but the caffeine content in green tea is likely the reason these weight loss benefits. Boost contains decaffeinated green tea so the dieter receives none of the benefits of caffeine. Caffeine is proven to boost fat burning potential. Cayenne pepper may have slight fat burning ability, but it is likely included in the supplement to increase absorption of other ingredients. L-carnitine is not going to increase fat burn or decrease appetite.

Resist is a carb blocker. Some carb blockers have some clinical evidence backing claims of increase weight loss and decreased sense of sweet taste, but the name of the ingredient is not included for Resist.

Qivana offers entrepreneurs a compensation system for selling Qivana. There is no mention of price, so we have no idea if the program is worth the money charged by Qivana.

Advantages of Qivana

  • Some ingredients are listed on the Qivana website.

Disadvantages of Qivana

  • The company is more focused on promoting affiliate sales than selling the product.
  • No complete list of ingredients.
  • No product prices.
  • Some testimonials do not contain before and after photos.


There is some promise in the Qivana Metaboliq program. Reduced calorie meal replacement is a great start to weight loss, but the Boost supplement leaves much to be desired. No fat burning ingredients or appetite suppressants are included in the formula. Dieters losing weight on the program likely lost weight because they decreased caloric intake by using meal replacements instead of eating high-calorie foods. Even though green tea is included in the supplement, it is in a decaffeinated variety. Decaffeinated green tea lacks the proven fat burning effects of caffeine.

  • Vitamins in Your Line of Product

    I have an ex daughter in law that is Giving my granddaughters Quiana supplements. Is there vitamins for children in your line of products?

    • Joanne

      They don’t have vitamins. The probiotic,defense, essentials is amazing for kids.

  • Investigate the Science behind the product
    Your Name

    With any natural product supplement company I suggest to always investigate the science behind the products and the company. If they are reputable their science expertise should be part of their Web site. Few in this industry have their own in house science teams. Very expensive but a great asset to the company and their representatives. Anyway I’m a believer in quality supplements. A senior citizen who never gets sick or even a cold. And taking no pharmaceutical products.

    • Maribel (Editor)

      We couldn’t agree more with you! We are all for making sure a product is backed up science and clinical studies. We’re a believer of quality too! Since we’re on the same page, thought you could agree that Dietspotlight Burn is a clinically proven, safe, and effective alternative (backed by science).

  •  Dont Feel Different Feel Good
    Bob (Verified User)

    I drink the shakes each day. Don’t have any after taste. Have gained muscle
    density and have lost fat on my torso. Boost is an added supplement to use
    with the other metabolique products so you are not going to feel different from just taking boost.

  • All companies have pros and cons
    Dr. Melanie

    I have sold many different supplements from various companies over the years. All companies have pros and cons. Qivana is the most thorough in their research of each ingredient and the combined product itself. I have never seen a supplement company invest so much in research. Almost all of their products are patented so they cannot be copied by other companies and they have leaders in the nutrition industry working for them, constantly innovating new products. I have read the ingredient label on every product and read every research paper conducted on Qivana. They are safe and effective. Average weight loss is 1.5 pounds lost per week between numerous studies without any change in diet or exercise. Of course, as a doctor I always recommend diet and exercise as well but for the studies they did not have the participants make any changes. The downside to Qivana is that they are a fairly new company and are not well organized at this time. I had to speak with one of the executives directly in order to access their research and I had to look at an actual bottle of the product to see the ingredients. They do not seem to have this information anywhere on their website. I have spoken with the leaders of the company about this and they assure me they are woking on adding this information to the website so hopefully it will be added shortly.

  • Gary

    Since I’ve been on their products I have lowered my blood pressure and been released off of 9 medications I had to take after open heart surgery. Also I’m down from 236lbs to 2011 lbs by using their Metaboliq system… it’s saved me a lot of money on pharmaceuticals and my doctor is thrilled. ..As is my wife.

  •  I'm taking the boost and I really don't feel a difference.
    Kleal (Verified User)

    I’m taking the boost and I really don’t feel a difference, I’ve even been getting calls to join their team… but putting out more money first? no Thanks! It is very true that they are all about the money… why wouldn’t you sell the product more than the business?

    • Your Name

      Qivana is a ground floor company. It is in the brand-building stage. You are putting money into buying a business. What business opportunity would you ever acquire for free?? There is real science behind every product and human clinical trials for every product brought to market by this company. I am an RN and have NEVER been more impressed by the scientific research and studies behind every product Qivana has brought to market. The product sells itself. We do not push products. We are selling a business opportunity.

  •  It is a life changing product
    Teresa (Verified User)

    Qivana has changed many lives with their products! They save money by giving it back to their IBO’s instead of putting it on the shelves with storage space prices and then people don’t correctly take the product. The lady that ordered didn’t consider that she was re-setting her metabolism and had a perfect meal in that shake for about 7.00 a day to correct your metabolism, not loose muscle mass and bone density! Less than a chick-fil-lay sandwich for sure and much more nourishing. I have had nothing but pleasant customer service when dealing with the Q team – James is incredible!Not to mention – the products do what they say they will do!

    • MIGS

      I have been using Qivana products since August I went from a size 10-12 to a size 4 jeans, I feel healthy, energized and the best I have since 16 years old. I am 58.
      I love the ease of the shakes and the peanut butter protein bars. This program is about $200 a week but it has changed my metabolism forever, It is the best investment I have ever made in myself. Why can’t regular people make an income on a product instead of just the millionaire big box stores…This product is the only thing that has given me what I see as a permanent change and healthier body. Clinical trials would be great but they are very expensive and that would increase the cost of the product..maybe the Drs that started this company will do it someday. Check out the people who developed these natural products.. they are all experts in their fields, obesity and herbs

      • Elizabeth

        I just started using the weight loss products to see how it works before I can get my husband to try but having some difficulty with the product. I called the company but I am told I don’t have anybody I can talk to but I have contact via e-mail with questions which I was not impressed with. Can you email me? perhaps your input can help me with my diet. thanks much appreciated.

        • Jay

          Hi, I am one of QIVANA’s distributor. Have you find the solution for your weight loss plan yet? If you still need help with it, please feel free to email me.

      • Liz

        Qivana worked for me I lost 26lbs.

      • Annie

        $200 a week! How is that sustainable for the average person? What about the rest of the grocery bill? That is one family’s grocery bill! How is that permanent? Clinical trials would prove the science and show real change, Real science takes time! not just … Oh, nevermind. Try losing weight with real food. I lost 50 lbs. I did it with a real weight loss program with real food and real vitamins and not something like this. I can’t believe this…
