Agel vs Pills
What is Agel?
Agel is a company that produces and distributes vitamins, minerals, proteins and other health and wellbeing products in the form of a gel through a network of independent distributors. Agel is a Multi Level Marketing business. What they sell is called gelceuticals.
They started in 2005 and have opened up in dozens of companies since their US launch. They have thousands of members reselling their product.
You can't buy Agel products in a supermarket. It's sold through the distributors. Much like Amway. Or any of the other possibly hundreds of legitimate MLM businesses that have sprung up over the years since Amway won a landmark case in 1979 when the Federal Trade Commission found that Amway did not qualify as an illegal pyramid scheme.
Aside from giving a little backstory and history we will not be looking at Agel or MLM's business ethics or their compensation plan.
We'll be looking specifically at Agel Vs Pills.
We won't be dragging up the hundreds of pages which prove how effective Agel is. Why? Because all the research has been conducted by Agel.
We will look at it solely from a laymans point of view, with a pound of common sense and a few heaped tablespoons of logic.
Gel works better. Apparently. It absorbs into your system so much faster. They say.
Okay, so the gel gets into your system faster. So if you really need the vitamins and minerals, take yours first thing in the morning. Wash it down with an orange juice. Or take them the night before.
Not all of us are elite athletes that require immediate results from our supplements. In fact if you have a healthy lifestyle and eat the right foods you don't need to rely on a dozen different elixirs (or potions, or gels, or pills or whatever).
"Agel™ EXO is a powerful blend of 14 rare and exotic fruits and plant extracts. These whole-fruit purees and plant extracts are absolutely loaded with antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients... One small packet of Agel EXO contains the equivalent of nearly five full servings of whole fruits and berries!"
Go and eat five full servings of fruits and berries! Your taste buds will love you for it!
Though one might wonder that even after devouring the small portion of EXO that comes in the little packet that you might still be hungry. What are you going to eat then?
Chase it down with some FIT!
"Agel™ FIT plays a powerful role in the sometimes frustrating struggle of eating less and moving more. Eliminating the harmful effects of stimulants, FIT contains a natural, active ingredient called Super CitriMax™, the patent-pending form of HCA (hydroxycitric acid), which comes from the extract of the fruit and rind of Garcinia cambogia."
"Take one Agel™ FIT packet twice a day as needed, 30-60 minutes before a meal."
Okay, so we have that sorted out. EXO to replace the 5 servings of fruit and because you'll probably go hungry because of it, take a couple of FIT's.
That's 3 gel packs per day.
Then there's MIN (vitamins and minerals), OHM (a boost of extra power), UMI (I got not idea what this is supposed to do for you), PRO (protein) and FLX (for your joints).
It's probably recommended to take at least one of these per day.
Each comes in a box of 30. So you get a months supply in one box. Except for FIT. If you're taking two a day that means there's only enough for half a month.
You could be going through 3 to 7 or even 8 boxes of Agel per month.
The alternative is that you eat a balanced diet. And just to be sure take a few multi-vitamins to make up for any short-fall.
But gel is so much easier to swallow than pills!
Break the pill in half. Into quarters. Grind it up. Dissolve it. But otherwise yes, a gel based product is easier. But then again a juice is even easier still.
Compare the prices...
A box of Agel costs what? $80? And if taken as recommended you'll be going through 2, 3, 4 or more boxes per month.
A bottle of multi-vitamins is how much? Twenty bucks? And they can have 100 tablets in there. That's 3 months worth! Do the math.
But I can make money with Agel!
Maybe I should sell those pills that the other MLM sells!
If all you're interested in is making money...
There are plenty of other ways. I'm not here to sell anything to you or sign you up to any program. I have no affiliations with any MLM company. I'm just amazed at the ongoing costs that these MLM incur not just on customers but on their members.
But again, if you're comparing Agel to Pills, then which do you think wins?
