Trevo continues to make a name for themselves in the MLM space

From the way their website talks about it, you’d think this company discovered the elixir for eternal life instead of just another vitamin-infused drink.

Well, their product actually does have way more vitamins than possibly any other nutritional supplement out there. 174 ingredients from the world’s most nutrient-dense plants are packed into this beverage, and people love it.

Does this mean I’m involved?

This video explains everything:

Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on Trevo.


Trevo is basically the Chicago Bulls in 1996, except in drink form.

Not gonna lie, the Stevens family, Trevo founders, look a little plastic. I’d bet there’s more than supplement juice (i.e. botox) keeping them youthful.

Mark Stevens, CEO, is a pretty well-known business owner/entrepreneur and best-selling author. He’s listed in the Who’s Who in Corporate America and serves on a number of important boards and charities. He’s been a motivational speaker and success coach. [1]

Holli Stevens, Director of Finance, has been nationally recognized as a top salesperson in the direct sales industry.

The couple formed Trevo together, which is governed by 7 “empowering principles”, 4 pillars, 9 core values, and a mission statement…


Here are the four pillars:

  1. Vibrant physical health
  2. Enthusiastic emotional health
  3. Thriving spiritual health
  4. Abundant financial health


Heard those before…from every other nutrition MLM.

Their 9 core values are…

  1. Persistence
  2. Consistence
  3. Giving
  4. Fun
  5. Embrace
  6. Passion
  7. Together
  8. Innovation
  9. Integrity

That’s all good, but what does life for a distributor actually look like?


Trevo essentially has one product – their 174-ingredient nutritional supplement drink called Trevo. It does come in different sizes…

  • 32-ounce bottle
  • 2-ounce Trevo2Go bottle

The drink is a “three-phase formula” that works in the following three ways…

  • Restores energy and focus and stimulates your body.
  • Renews your body with phytonutrients.
  • Revives you with anti-aging and immunity properties.

But, really, why do they need 174 ingredients? Seems a little excessive.

Well, if you take all the magical herbs and exotic plants that various MLMs use in their nutritional products and combine them into one drink, you’d have Trevo.

Some supplements focus on nutraceuticals found down in the depths of the ocean, some like to tout the incredible wonders hiding in the Amazon rainforest, and some like to tell lofty stories about trekking the Himalayas for their ingredients. Trevo combines them all.

The drink includes everything from acai, asparagus, biotin, banana, bromelain, and coral calcium (literally calcium from fossilized coral), to garlic, amino acids, noni, papaya, pomegranate, and…162 other things. [2]

What you get is basically a SUPER superfood supplement that serves all kinds of functions, including:

  • Mental health and cognition
  • Weight management
  • Heart health
  • Cellular health
  • Digestion
  • Nervous system
  • Immune system
  • Circulatory system
  • Eye health
  • Bone and joint health
  • Blood pressure

Whether or not it’s really effective to just throw all the best herbs and fruits together into one miracle drink is up in the air.

The FDA has not backed any of their claims, of course, however there are some studies that look promising. They’re and Kosher, CAP-e certified, vegetarian, and they’re endorsed by Dr. Brian Wilmovsky, a pretty famous chiropractor who’s all about natural medicine.

They’re also ORAC certified and have a high score of over 373,000 per bottle. ORAC (Oxygen radical absorbance capacity) scores are basically a way to tell how high-powered and effective the antioxidants in a given substance are. [3]

There are definitely scientific benefits to many of the ingredients in Trevo too. Amino acids are crucial proteins for building and maintaining cell health, antioxidants fight free radicals that have been linked to diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, and polyphenols have been shown to successfully lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease. [4]

Trevo also claims the beverage is good for the health of everyone from your toddler to your great grandpa (children should be over the age of 2).


You do have to purchase monthly minimum orders to remain active and get commission, and the more you buy, the more commission you can access.

  • 1 bottle a month gets you access to 1 generation
  • 2 bottles a month gets you access to 2 generations
  • 3 bottles a month gets you access to 5 generations
  • 4 bottles a month gets you access to 5 generations
  • 6 bottles a month gets you access to all 8 generations [6]

You’ve got 8 ways to make money with Trevo:

  1. Retail sales
  2. Power start commissions
  3. Upgrade commissions
  4. QVP commissions
  5. Bulk pack commission
  6. Team volume recognition pool bonus
  7. Leadership bonuses
  8. Charity bonus

Their compensation plan is a single line matrix compensation plan. It’s pretty unique to them, and everyone who joins Trevo after you benefits you somehow.

Retail sales commission is about 20-40%, which is pretty standard. A bottle of product is $59.99, which could net you $22. You get some decent bonuses for enrolling preferred customers too.

Compression is used to make sure that your commission are maximized every month, which is nice.

When one of your personal recruits enrolls a new “Life and Health Coach” (distributor), you get 20% of their enrollment purchase in the form of a matching bonus.

You also get bonuses for selling bulk packs and moving up in rank, and of course, group volume commission.


Compensation plan is not bad. It’s not great either. It’s pretty middle of the road as far as nutritional MLMs go, but they’ve got some decent bonuses that might tip it in favor of the distributor.

The product idea is pretty catchy, to be honest.

It’s pretty hard to compete in this niche because everyone and their mother is pushing nutritional products from MLMs that contain the latest miracle fruit and super vegetable.

Trevo really goes head to head with the competition, one-upping them all by including every nutrient dense ingredient they could find.

But as with so many other MLMs, the money is top-heavy. Even if the company is sitting pretty, only the top 1% of reps are seeing that wealth, if that.

Would it be worth your time to join Trevo? Eh, maybe. You’d have to really believe in the products and have a solid approach to getting your leads.

But if it’s the money opportunity you’re chasing, there are other opportunities out there that would yield a better reward for your time.

If you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)
