Why Vida Divina is doing so well (full review)

Miracle capsules, goji berries, and detox teas galore.

Sounds like…a health and wellness MLM.

They’re all the same, right? Or could Vida Divina be a diamond in the rough?

Vida Divina has actually been doing quite well in a competitive space.

Does this mean I’m involved?

This video explains everything:

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


Vida Divina was founded by sales genius and charisma king Armand Puyolt, who got his start in door-to-door sales when he was a kid to help out his family financially. He was already being recognized on stage as a top sales person by the young age of 16.

He’s done a lot since then. By 18, he bought his own home. By 20, he hit a million. By 25, he reached 5 million.

Puyolt has been involved with ACN, Metabolife, Kyani, and even Total Life Changes, where he was a million dollar earner. Vida Divina is his biggest venture yet into launching his own company, and he definitely hit the ground running.

Within 2 months of Vida Divina’s launch last summer, they’d already hit $23 million in sales. Most MLMs struggle to make that much in their first YEAR. [1]

Vida Divina’s core goal is to help everyone lead a “divine life” by valuing its members and employees as the most important component of the business. According to their website, “the true measure of a company’s success is measured by wealth achieved by the many, not the few.”

If they really believed that, they probably wouldn’t be in this industry, considering that providing success for only the top few is what makes MLM function.

How much does Vida Divina cost?
In order to become a Vida Divina Affiliate, you have to purchase a start-up kit, and they’re not cheap.

The most affordable start-up kit is $120, and it comes with a 3 month supply of Te Divina. Other starter kits range from $300 to $1,200. And the more you pay, the more commissions and bonuses you qualify for.

On top of that hefty start-up cost, you must also meet a minimum of 120 PV in auto-ship requirements every single month in order to stay active.


The products here fall into the health and wellness category, with all your typical findings: detox teas, weight control, nutrition, performance, and skin care. Although, the company does offer a few fairly unique products.

Vida Divina has two flagship products: Factor Divina and Te Divina.

Factor Divina is a nutritional supplement drink made with over 32 vitamins and superfoods, including blueberry, green tea, goji berry, mangosteen, acai, spirulina, zarzamora, amalaki, and 20-something other hard to pronounce nutrients.

Te Divina is a detox and weight loss tea. It contains 12 different herbs that are designed to rid your body of toxins and parasites. The tea is $60 for a box with 6 satchels, and each satchel makes one gallon of the tea. $10 for a gallon of tea isn’t the worst price I’ve ever heard, but it’s certainly not cheap.

One of their most commonly used ingredients is chaga, a powerful medicinal mushroom that supposedly helps with everything from digestion to blood pressure to memory, allergies, ulcers, energy, and stress. It’s found in their Factor Divina supplement as well as their coffee, nutritional capsules, chocolate milk, and nutritional chews.

The company also sells a chewing gum that helps with digestion, tongue strips containing HCG, and even a pomegranate flavored “sexual enhancement gel”, lol.

The main ingredient in most of their products, chaga (a mushroom), has definitely been shown to have some powerful benefits. It’s been used for medicinal purposes for centuries in places like Russia and Poland to cleanse, disinfect, fight stomach and liver diseases, and even cancer.

Chaga contains a lot of antioxidants, and there is good evidence that it stimulates the immune system. There’s also research to show that it could lower blood sugar and cholesterol.

The mushroom’s antioxidant properties come from the protection of cell components against free radicals. That same protection has been shown to protect against oxidative damage to DNA. In one study, cells penetrated with chaga were shown to have 40% less DNA damage than those that were not. [2]

So, when the company says that their products can actually protect your DNA, they’re not lying.

In fact, the mushroom was even shown to have some anticancer effects in a study in 2011. [3]

Their weight loss tea, Te Divina, has 12 different herbal ingredients, but the top listed ingredient is persimmon leaves.

Now, I usually call bull on these weight loss teas, but a study back in 2006 fed rats super high-fat foods and then gave one group a bunch of persimmon leaves, and guess what? The ones who consumed a persimmon leaf didn’t retain as many lipids – i.e., the leaves actually suppressed weight gain. [4]

Side Effects
When taken in conjunction with medications such as aspirin, chaga can increase your risk of bleeding. You shouldn’t consume it if you have a bleeding disorder or before or after surgery.

There really hasn’t been enough research done on chaga to identify all of its potential side effects, so it’s not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

It’s also possible that since chaga activates the immune system, it could increase your chances of certain autoimmune diseases, so it’s not recommended for people who have multiple sclerosis, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis.

As for the tea, it’s all made of herbs that are generally pretty safe. It can cause constipation (there’s a lot of fiber in those herbs) and fluid retention, though, which are pretty opposed to weight loss.


Retail commission with Vida Divina is 28%. Not bad, but nothing special.

They do offer fast track bonuses at a whopping 50%-70%, but those only last so long. If you start out strong, though, you can go in making decent money.

Other bonuses include a 20% presentation bonus, a 50% generational matching bonus, a home mortgage bonus, vacation bonuses, and free product bonuses.

They also offer binary team commission to anyone with 2 personally sponsored, active affiliates, one on their right leg, and one on their left leg. Binary commission start at 5% for the lowest ranking qualified affiliates and go up from there. Everything up to Bronze level stays under 10%, but once you hit that, your team commission could get all the way up to 20% at the highest ranks.

Of course, the minimum pay leg volume to hit those highest ranks is 1 million. Good luck with that.


Vida Divina is not a scam. In fact, their products are decently legit, for a health and wellness MLM.

Their founder sounds like he definitely knows what he’s doing, too.

The compensation plan is nothing spectacular, but it’s definitely fair.

That being said, the start-up costs are high, and the monthly auto-ship requirements are more than some people’s car payment.

Unless you have a network of family and friends who are DESPERATE to buy lots of weight loss tea and nutritional supplements, and I mean lots, you’re going to be stuck with a closet full of the stuff, and you’ll have lost more money than you made.

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

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