New Informed-Choice Logo on Immunocal Boxes

Very soon, when Consultants receive their Immunocal boxes, they will notice a new logo ( Trusted by sport) on the top panel of each box.  

This logo signifies that the world-class anti-doping lab, LGC - Science for a Safer World, with its quality-assurance program, is stating that Immunocal is free of banned substances.
So whether you are a weekend warrior or Olympic Gold Medalist, you can enter your competition with “peace of mind” knowing that Immunocal has been tested by one of the top programs worldwide.

Many natural products are available that claim to help your immune system, but very few have undergone the rigorous testing and published human trials that Immunotec has accomplished over the years. Over forty published scientific and medical articles attest to its remarkable credibility.

The Immunotec Children's Fund

The Immunotec Children's Fund was established to continue Dr. Gustavo Bounous’ lifelong dream of improving the lives of underserved and underprivileged children.

Once again, Immunotec has continued this philosophy by taking a holistic approach to The Immunotec Children's Fund by addressing all aspects of well-being so important to our future generations.

Immunotec has entered into a partnership with its Consultants from around the world to help support children's academic, nutritional and physical education needs within their local communities.

Immunotec Consultants may submit their formal requests to support a local organization or cause that would benefit from a donation from the fund. The causes or organizations that best promote academics, nutrition, physical education for children, aged 5 to 16, will be selected by The Immunotec Children's Fund Selection Board led by John Molson, VP of Research and Development.

When a Consultant or Customer places their first order with Immunotec, a portion of that purchase is donated to The Immunotec Children's Fund.

Executive Connection with Charlie Orr, CEO, Immunotec

In this month’s Executive Connection, Direct Selling News Publisher and Editor in Chief Lauren Lawley Head speaks with Charlie Orr, CEO of Canada-based Immunotec, about servant leadership, authenticity and being a lifelong learner. 

 Charles L. Orr, CEO
DSN: What is the one thing you enjoy most about being Immunotec’s CEO?
CO: Being with field consultants and our employee colleagues in all our markets.

DSN: What are the characteristics that make an Immunotec Consultant successful?
CO: While there is no single way to do the business, our top leaders tend to do certain things that lead to success. First, they tell their own unique, inspiring story regularly. Then, they focus on others daily—they’re servant leaders. Related to that, they build a team in order to help others, and they work the business system as a team. They keep it fun and simple so that it’s duplicable and shared every day. They’re genuine. They stay true to who they are. And finally, they’re lifelong learners who are committed to personal and organizational development.

DSN: What do you tell Immunotec Consultants to lead and inspire them?
CO: It starts with the home office team being present with them. There is no substitute for being in the marketplace. When you are in-market, fully engaged and being yourself, listening, having fun with your colleagues, these are the most important things you can do. I’m sure they remember what we say, but our physical and emotional support makes the most impact. There’s no such thing as spending too much time with the field.

DSNWhat insight did you bring from your experience as the Executive Director of Direct Selling Education Foundation that has been most useful to you at Immunotec?
CO: I had so many wonderful experiences that it’s impossible to choose just one. When I was in the DSEF I had the privilege of meeting great executives and volunteers from many DSA member companies. Every day I encountered new ideas and insights, from coast to coast and around the world. I saw so many companies and people building their businesses really well, as well as companies working through a rough patch. It was like earning an additional master's degree in terms of understanding our business model and how dynamic and rapidly changing the environment can be when you’re inside a company.

DSN: What do you value most about the direct selling model?
CO: The fact that it’s people centric.

DSN: What is your vision for Immunotec?
CO: For Immunocal® to be the nutritional choice on a worldwide basis.

DSN: Is there one basic principle that governs your leadership at Immunotec?
CO: Everybody is treated fairly, with respect, with love.

DSN: What project or accomplishment do you consider to be the most significant in your career?
CO: I don’t think about what I have done; I think about what we do. When a company gets the partnership and collaboration really working well between home office and field, there’s nothing better that can happen to you in this business model. I see that as a collective accomplishment.

DSN: When you’re not at work, where are you most likely to be found?
CO: With my family.

Immunotec: Growth Driven by Alignment

Immunotec: Growth Driven by Alignment
by Barbara Seale

Better. That’s the word that captures how Immunotec created a dramatic growth surge this past year. It got better at a wide variety of actions that drive its business. Collectively, all those improvements resulted in a 47.5 percent increase in 2014 total revenue, reaching CAN$80.8 million (US$72 million).

Sponsoring, which the wellness company defines as the number of new consultants and customers, got better, too. It increased 85.2 percent over 2013 to nearly 64,000 in Mexico, its largest market, while the rest of North America increased 26.7 percent to nearly 20,000. Since then, the numbers have continued to get better, reaching almost 100,000 in total. The company’s growth catapulted it into the 2015 Direct Selling NewsGlobal 100 for the first time in its 19-year history, coming in at No. 97.

Such inspiring growth doesn’t happen randomly. Great products are required, of course, and Immunotec can boast that its flagship product is backed by an ever-increasing number of impressive clinical studies. It’s even listed in the prestigiousPhysician’s Desk Reference, the comprehensive drug reference book used by doctors, nurses and pharmacists. But products don’t tell the whole story. Underlying the numbers is a critical concept: better alignment. CEO Charlie Orr credits the growth surge to the alignment through implementation of the company’s vision, mission and values keystones.

“This isn’t just about a number of years of great growth,” he says. “We already had everything we needed, but we were out of balance. Until we all got aligned in terms of how we thought about the business every single day, growth was destined to be elusive.”

Walking the Talk

Words alone aren’t enough though, and Immunotec threw the weight of a comprehensive program behind the words, creating visible messaging reminders that help to cement the common goal of consultants, employees and the board of directors to grow the business. In the headquarters lobby, a floor-to-ceiling stone wall incorporates all the important words from the VMV for visitors and employees to see. Accompanying the wall are stone portraits of Bounous and his collaborator Patricia Kongshavn, Ph.D., who was a professor and fellow researcher in immunology at McGill University.

Framed copies of the VMV were presented to employees, who now prominently display them in every office and department of Immunotec in Canada, the United States and Mexico. And events—the lifeblood of any direct selling company—always reflect the VMV. Consultants even refer to them during opportunity meetings. And every communications element, including incentives, promotions, the company’s bimonthly electronic newsletter, the website, the Immunotec Facebook page, and email signatures are designed and aligned to “live” the VMV.

“The better alignment that our Vision, Mission and Values created throughout the company has accelerated growth, and it will support reaching $100 million Canadian and beyond.”
—Charlie Orr, CEO

The VMV even inspired the creation of the Immunotec Children’s Fund, the company’s philanthropic flagship. Immunotec launched the fund at last year’s annual barbecue to continue Bounous’ lifelong dream of improving the lives of underserved and underprivileged children. The fund partners with consultants in their local communities to help support children’s academic, nutritional and physical needs.

“The better alignment that our Vision, Mission and Values created throughout the company has already accelerated growth, and it will support reaching $100 million Canadian and beyond,” Orr says. “The next thing that is foundational for us is consistent execution of our business rhythm throughout all of our markets.”

That rhythm pulsates through the power of corporate, regional and local events strategically scheduled throughout the year to reinforce the sponsoring, engagement and development of consultants. From smaller events in January that build excitement for the big sales convention every February, to regional conventions in each market, to the company barbecue in September, to the big sales incentive trip—or trips, depending on the market—something is always happening to deliver excitement, training and recognition.

“Executing against our business rhythm is as important as anything we do,” Orr says. “When you break that business rhythm, you confuse yourself and the field. You take something away that people have come to expect. We may tweak, update or change, but we always partner with the field to make everything we do an improvement over the last event, and always first class. But each event must have a high degree of predictability because our consultants are the folks who drive the business forward.”

Business Builders

Once the events are over, consultants take their knowledge and enthusiasm home. They work their business using recently developed training programs and better communications tools that create message alignment across the company.
“Our products have always been great, but we needed our distributors to open new doors,” says direct selling veteran Jean-Pierre (JP) Trottier, the company’s Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Over the past two or three years we have provided them with training programs, communications to support the products and the business opportunity, a new field recognition program, and a business presentation template so that the presentation was easily duplicable and everyone spoke the same language. New people came into Immunotec because they wanted to live an active and productive lifestyle. We were able to position the product to attract a large segment of the population, and we supported business-building activities at the same time.”

They recrafted the compensation and incentives program for leaders and paired it with additional leadership-development initiatives, training leaders on their responsibilities at each leadership level. For example, three years ago a senior leader could earn the annual travel incentive trip through personal performance. Today’s incentive qualifications require leaders to demonstrate both the ability to perform personally and to develop members of their teams. Field leaders soon realized that focusing on their teams would bring even more income opportunities and satisfaction. The company also developed field task forces that enable the company’s headquarters staff to partner better with field leaders.

“Those who were given new responsibilities rose to fulfill the new expectations,” Trottier recalls. “People want to feel appreciated, and feel they can contribute. The system we created enabled them to feel better about their role and the impact they were creating. We’re still working on it, but it’s becoming part of the culture.”

Investing in Infrastructure

As sales and sponsoring ramp-up, Immunotec is supporting its field by investing in key infrastructure. Its new $500,000 technology platform will be faster and easier to use, and it will provide better access to information that consultants use to build their business. The online order system will be more user-friendly and will provide the opportunity for immediate product purchases. They expect to launch a program this fall to ramp up monthly orders and auto-ship with an eye toward improving consultant retention. At the same time, they will launch programs that reward auto-purchasers, such as greater discounts.

“Our products have always been great, but we needed our distributors to open new doors.”
—Jean-Pierre (JP) Trottier, Vice President, Sales and Marketing

“We’re developing special loyalty programs that reward users so that they order regularly. For some people it takes weeks or months before they feel the benefit of the products, so we put lots of effort into communicating to users to explain the benefits of the products and of staying on the products. This also benefits the field, as it helps them create long-term customers.”

The new state-of-the-art system will give Immunotec an improved ability to analyze data, as well. This year the company will also deploy new payment processing capabilities in selected markets that will better support commission payments.
Beyond technology, Immunotec opened a new sales office in October 2014, in Commerce, California, customizing it with meeting rooms and computer facilities to support business presentations and sponsoring. Trottier says the facility has been a big help in boosting U.S. sales. Orr notes that the investment in the facility recognized better sales in the U.S., especially in Southern California, which produces about 25 percent of the company’s U.S. sales.

“Our Southern California-based folks demonstrated by their performance that it was time for us to open such a facility,” Orr explains. “Looking ahead, I think that model can be replicated in other parts of the country.”
As Orr looks to the future, he is both optimistic and patient. He envisions the company expanding into more international markets, especially in Central and South America, over time, but he also wants to increase penetration in current markets. He notes that the company has created a robust product development system that will provide ongoing new products and enhancements. Orr also envisions further developing Immunotec’s field leadership and notes that the company has Diamond Leadership, its first major leadership level, in two-thirds of all states in Mexico, its largest market. But as Immunotec approaches its 20th anniversary, he emphasizes that this is a moment in the company’s history that deserves to be saluted.

“Everyone should celebrate the fact that we entered the Direct Selling News Global 100 and the North America 50. But just like there’s a difference between achieving rank and holding rank, our goal is to hold our Top 100 ranking,” he says. “Overall, we could grow as much as 10 percent in 2015. But we’re taking time now to hold rank, to do all the right things and not force things that can’t be forced. I see a vast amount of potential if we follow the model we’ve put in place over the last few months for how we think about this business.”

Announcing Special Motivational Guest Speaker, Leslie Zann to speak at the Business Blast meeting on September 12th.

Leslie Zann is a master at helping people discover and ignite their true and limitless potential. She has an extraordinarily unique way of making deep and emotional connections with her clients…and these connections lead to unveiling their outrageous achievement.

With more than 20 years of Direct Selling experience, Leslie has developed a unique talent for helping people overcome their potential-stopping “limiting beliefs”.

Her one-of-a-kind perspective has much to do with the fact that she’s worked on both sides of the fence.  She’s built her own very successful Direct Selling business ($1.2 million in sales) and has eight years of corporate experience with three distinct business models: Direct Selling, Network Marketing, and Party Plan.

Leslie helps organizations strategically align their sales, management and operational goals with targeted action plans.  And, through personalized coaching, she inspires top field leaders to align their vision for success with proven strategies for increasing sales, sponsoring and highly effective leadership development.

She believes great achievement is always possible and that a person’s mindset is the key to unlocking the door to that achievement.  In fact, she often tells people, “I believe if we change our thinking, we can change our lives. Limiting beliefs prevents most people from designing the life of their dreams.”

FAQ: Can you overdose on Immunocal?

Can you overdose on Immunocal?
There have been no reports of toxicity from overdosing on Immunocal. 

Glutathione is a tightly regulated intracellular constituent and is limited in its production by negative feedback inhibition of its own synthesis through the enzyme gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase, thus greatly minimizing any possibility of overdose.

Immunocal® First to be Granted Strength and Performance Claim for a Stand-Alone Whey Protein by Health Canada

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QC, May 12, 2015 – Immunotec Inc. (TSXV: IM) a direct-to-consumer company and leader in the nutritional industry (the “Company” or “Immunotec”) announced today that Health Canada has granted a new health claim specific to Immunocal’s ability to help increase muscle strength and enhance performance when combined with regular exercise.
“To be the first in Canada to obtain a performance claim for a stand-alone whey protein isolate reinforces our leadership position in the health and wellness industry and when combined with our existing immunity claim, gives the Immunocal brand unique positioning. These milestones are the fruition of over four decades of research at leading university hospitals in Canada and abroad.” said Mr. John Molson, Vice-President of Research and Development. Mr. Molson also stated, “While at first glance this claim may seem athlete specific, the application is much broader given the importance of maintaining muscle strength during the aging process.”
The published findings of two peer-reviewed, double blind, randomized, placebo controlled clinical trials were used to support the application. The most recent study, run at Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM) and published in the JOURNAL OF NUTRITION HEALTH AND AGING (2015), found that Immunocal imparted a performance benefit of approximately 10% in a model of resistance exercise in an elderly population of between 65 years to 88 years. The first study exploring Immunocal’s effect on muscular performance was conducted at the Montreal Children’s hospital and published in the Journal of Applied Physiology (1999). It demonstrated that consumption was associated with an average increase of 13.5% in peak power and thirty second work capacity in a younger population of 20 year olds.
About Immunocal
Immunocal is a specially formulated cysteine-rich whey protein isolate, developed and marketed worldwide by Immunotec over the past 20 years. It initially secured a Health Canada NPN (Natural Product Number) on November 11, 2007 for the health claim “Immunocal is a natural source of the glutathione precursor cysteine for the maintenance of a strong immune system.”

Immunotec Inc. is a Canadian-based company ranked in the DSN Global 100 list. The Company develops, manufactures, markets and sells research-driven nutritional products through direct-to-consumer sales channels in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. The Company offers an extensive family of nutritional products targeting health, wellness, weight management, as well as energy and fitness.

Glutathione supplementation - manipulation of natural defense mechanismsin health and disease

Article 8The human body is one of nature’s finest miracles and researchers are still unlocking many of its secrets. Recent discoveries have shed important light on the role that glutathione plays in maintaining health.

Most individuals have not heard of glutathione, however given the accelerated course of research publications on the subject and the large impact it will have in future health care, the term glutathione will shortly become integrated into our everyday language, the same way as we use the words “antioxidant” or “cholesterol”.

Glutathione is the body’s own health ‘AID’ – Antioxidant, Immune Booster, and Detoxifier. This small protein, produced naturally in the body, maintains these three crucial protective functions. In fact, your life depends upon it. Without glutathione, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation.


In the last twenty years the volume of research into GSH has grown immensely. A huge variety of theoretical papers, bench-top laboratory experiments, epidemiological studies and—most importantly—clinical trials on humans, has linked glutathione to an extraordinary variety of health challenges. The list is long and would be hard to believe were it not for the strength and credibility of the research.


Advances in the study of antioxidants have grown to the point that a whole new branch of medicine has developed called “Free Radical Biology” which focuses on oxidant/antioxidant balance. These scientists have elaborated upon several hundred different disease processes where #antioxidants play a vital role. The shelves of natural food stores and pharmacies are resplendent with a large array of different antioxidants offered. However, although these antioxidants including vitamin C and vitamin E are “natural”, they are not natural to your body. If you do not ingest these vitamins, they will not be found in your cells naturally. Given the importance of #antioxidation in hundreds of different disease processes, one poses the question – “What antioxidant does the body manufacture to ward off these processes?” #Glutathione is the most abundantly produced antioxidant in the body. In fact, the presence of this ubiquitous small protein is crucial for the functioning of any of the other antioxidants we know of.


Your immune system is constantly on the prowl for foreign antigens—agents of cellular damage, toxicity and disease. These antigens include viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. To neutralize these antigens the body needs a ready supply of glutathione. If it doesn’t have enough, some of the invaders will get through and infect the body. We can’t avoid illness and aging altogether — although a few scientists are pursuing some age-old dreams — but by keeping our #intracellular glutathione levels up we also keep our immune system on full alert and fully armed. Dr. Gustavo #Bounous, a leading glutathione expert, concurs that glutathione is fuel for the immune system. “ The limiting factor for the proper activity and multiplication of our #lymphocytes (white blood cells) is the availability of glutathione”. Dr. Bounous’ research at McGill University has culminated in the development of a nutritional supplement called “Immunocal” a natural source of the glutathione precursor cysteine for the maintenance of a strong immune system.


Hundreds of toxins are eliminated by the GSH enzyme system. It’s no surprise that GSH concentrations are highest in the liver, the body’s major detoxifying organ. We inhale and ingest natural and synthetic toxins every day of our lives and can’t possibly avoid them, especially in our technological times, our congested and polluted cities and with our bio-engineered food supplies. Experimental studies have shown that low glutathione levels lead to poor liver and kidney function, and result in unnecessarily large quantities of toxins circulating through the body. There, they continuously damage individual cells and organs.


Every day our bodies are exposed to factors that drain our levels of glutathione: Stress, pollution, radiation, infection, poor diet, aging, injury and fatigue. “Concern about maintaining one’s glutathione level will eventually be on par with other health maintenance issues. People will soon be raising their glutathione levels the same way they take their vitamin pills each morning,” says Dr. Bounous.


It is vital to clarify one particular aspect of the glutathione story. When people find out about GSH, they want to go to their health store, buy some and ‘take’ it. Although it can be found as a supplement, eating glutathione has negligible effects on your health. It is quickly broken down in your digestive tract and eliminated. GSH must be manufactured within your cells, which is exactly where it appears—in every cell of your body. The only way to accomplish this effectively is to give your body the building blocks (precursors) it needs to manufacture glutathione for itself.

Some products such as NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) have been developed to provide these precursors but there are also natural ways to raise glutathione levels. Vitamin C, E and selenium indirectly support glutathione function. Milk thistle (silymarin), alpha-lipoic acid and L‑cysteine may have moderate effects. A natural source of the glutathione precursor cysteine for the maintenance of a strong immune system is Immunocal.

The immune system | Glutathione

The immune system is complex, but a major cornerstone of the immune system is a molecule
called glutathione. It is present in every cell in your body, is absolutely essential for your health,
and is a critical front line defense to maintain wellness. You need glutathione to remain alive.

Glutathione is the master antioxidant, and is responsible for the proper functioning of our immune
cells. Immunocal is a natural source of the glutathione precursor cysteine for the maintenance of
a strong immune system.

How? It does so by providing special proteins which supply your cells with the specific building blocks needed to produce glutathione, so that your body’s defense mechanism can work efficiently.

Immunocal is a specially formulated natural health product which is comprised of a rare and fragile
protein derived from whey. A cutting-edge method is used to isolate specific whey proteins, and most
importantly, ensures that they are maintained in their natural state so that they are preserved during
processing. The protection and integrity of these very fragile proteins is critical, since they act as a
glutathione precursor for the maintenance of a strong immune system.

Maximize your wellness!
