Laminine sold by LifePharm maybe a dangerous supplement. The company is currently under investigation by the FDA and FTC. I have heard of people becoming deathly ill after taking this product. I would hate to see anyone else getting sick or even dying after taking this product. The company states Laminine can cure everything from Cancer To Aids.

In addition, the Attorney General's Office will be investigating LifePharm as to it's practice of being a "pyramide" scheme - which is illegal. Be warned of products sold through a pyramide scheme as it's normally found to be dangerous and not safe to take.

This is shocking what the company has gotten away with and should be shut down for this.

Laminine dangerous??

AUTHOR: Carol - ()

          Any one saying that Laminine is dangerous obviously has not used it.  I believe the fda doesn't like it because it is helping so many people.  

    The company does not claim to heal cancer or anything else.  Laminine provides nutrients it needs so the body can heal itself.  Any negative reactions is just the body detoxing all the garbage that the fda approves.  They don't want people to be healthier because they would lose so much money.  

    My experience, I had severe arthritis, already on two medications.  I was still in a lot of pain and had joint inflammation.  My doctor wanted me to start taking injections of Humira, I don't like taking prescription drugs.

   I refused injections after reading the side effects, I started praying for God to give me some other answer.  Two days' later a friend told me about Laminine.  I started taking it and within a few day's my pain and inflammation was down enough I no longer needed to worry about taking injections.  I am gradually cutting back on the medications I was already on.

   Other benifits:  I no longer have depression, I sleep wonderfully, not waking up during the night.  I have more energy during the day and 'I Feel Happy!!'.   Thank God for Laminine!!!

Independent Distributor.

AUTHOR: tennisace - (United States of America)

This report looks to be completely fictitious and sent by a jealous competitor.  They do not site any proof of any of their accusations.  I've had people check and no one can find any proof of any investigation by the FDA, the FTC, any Attorney General's office or any government agency.  The company does not state that Laminine cures anything.  In fact, they are very careful to make sure that they state "This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."  LifePharm Global is an 11 year old legitimate network marketing company.

A simple rule: If it is an MLM, it is a ripoff

AUTHOR: Steve - (USA)

If you follow this one rule, you will save yourself a lot of money. MLMs prey on the poor and uneducated who think they are owning a "business". It is an intrinsically unsustainable structure, which is why most people lose money on them. And with all those unsophisticated people out there trying to recruit as many people as possible, you will always get a good amount of them that make crazy claims (like the curing of AIDS). It is impossible for a company to control their sheep - er, "distributors," even if they wanted to. 

And given the huge markup that is required to pay all those levels of commissions, everything sold in an MLM is way overpriced. This is why they have to make their product seem unique (like freeze dried egg whites or whatever), so that it is hard to compare prices. 

If you are already in an MLM, please check out http://www.mlmwatch.org/. You have been taken for enough money, get out now.

Laminine MLM Rip Off

AUTHOR: lee - (United States of America)

There is very little online information about this product other than hype posted by the company and it's distributors.  However I have tried it without joining the MLM and found that it does absolutely nothing.  I bought some out of curiosity through Amazon after having been approached by a neighbor who is a distributor.  I tried it for two months with no noticeable results good or bad.

I was highly suspicious of the whole thing because I know that MLM schemes are basically pyramid schemes that have managed to stay more or less legal by selling a real product.  In the case of laminine, they have worked up an ingenious story about how this chicken egg product is different and of course way better than ordinary organic hen's eggs.  It may indeed have some egg white in it, but the label is careful to avoid specifics by stating only that it contains a 'proprietary blend' which could be anything.  I'm guessing it's a blend of sugar and maybe egg white, or maybe just plain harmless white powder.

Any product that is only available through joining an MLM scheme is obviously suspicious.  Amazon is the only place I know of that is selling it retail - at $40 a bottle of 30 pills.  It's a scam and a fraud at any price, but to the best of my knowledge it hasn't killed anyone or caused any negative physical symptoms.  If it were on the up and up you would be able to buy it at health food stores or other such retail outlets.  If the FDA or other agency isn't investigating it, I hope they will soon do so, as these type of scams spread fast.  Lots of people will lose their money and the company will disappear a quickly as it appeared taking the profits with them to some off shore location.

AUTHOR: Soaring Eagles - (United States of America)

I am a daily user of Laminine and an independent distributor with the company.  The post by "InfoDoctor" is ludicrous.  He apparently has been "doctoring his info". 

InfoDoctor states: " Laminine sold by LifePharm maybe a dangerous supplement...I have heard of people becoming deathly ill after taking this product. I would hate to see anyone else getting sick or even dying after taking this product."

Laminine is primarily the freeze-dried and purified extract from the white of an organically raised fertilized hen's egg. If hen's eggs are dangerous, we are all in big trouble.   

Infodoctor further claims: "The company states Laminine can cure everything from Cancer To Aids".  This too is false.  I have never heard any distributor make the claim the product can cure cancer or AIDS.  If they did, they would be terminated by the company for making unsubstantiated treatment claims, as only approved pharmaceutical drugs can make this kind of claim.  A review of the website quoted by InfoDoctor shows this link:

http://www.iwanttotrylaminine.com/laminine-brochure.pdf 

Which states: "These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."

Infodoctor states that the FDA and FTC are investigating LifePharm (the manufacturer of Laminine).

The FDA is not investigating Life Pharm according to a search of the FDA website, which always lists investigations and warning letters sent to companies.  An FDA database search for LifePharm reveals no investigations:

http://google2.fda.gov/search?q=lifepharm&client=FDAgov&site=FDAgov&lr=&proxystylesheet=FDAgov&output=xml_no_dtd&getfields=*

Furthermore, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is not investigating Life Pharm as a "pyramid" scheme.  A Federal Trade Commission database search for LifePharm  also reveals no investigations:

http://ftcsearch.ftc.gov/search?q=lifepharm&btnG=Search&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&client=ftc_consumer&proxystylesheet=ftc_consumer&filter=0

Update to InfoDoctor: 
Network marketing (Multi-level marketing) is neither a pyramid scheme, nor is it illegal:

"Legal multi-level marketing (MLM) involves being recruited in order to sell a product or service that actually has some inherent value. As a recruit, you can make a profit from the sales of the product or service, so you don't necessarily have to recruit more salespeople below you. And while you may be encouraged to recruit other salespeople whose sales would give you more profit, you can stick to just selling the product directly to the consumer if you choose".

A pyramid scheme, however, never sells a product with independent value.

It's unfortunate that frivolous posts without supporting documentation remain here on this report in perpetuity.  If you are unhappy with the company for some reason, InfoDoctor, then contact them.  Don't make frivolous posts here.
