WE WERE APPROACHED BY THREE US NATIONALS FROM NEW YOURK WHO ASKED US TO DEVELOP AN EFFECTIVE ARGININE PRODUCT ALONG THE LINES OF PRO-ARGININE.

IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND AND SERVE OUR CLIENTS WE STARTED INDEPTH INVESTIGATION AND FOUND THE FOLLOWING;

FIRST WE ANALYZED ALL MRS. ALLEN'S STATEMENTS REGARDING L-ARGININE AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO VERIFY ANY OF THEM TO BE INDEPENDENT OF ESTABLISHED BENEFICIAL PROPERTIES OF L-ARGININE.

WHILE HER PRODUCT SEEMS TO TRIGGER MOST OF THE KNOWN BENEFITS OF L-ARGININE THERE IS NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT IT OTHER THAN THAT IT IS HEAVILY OVER PRICED AND ITS POINT OF SALE AND PRICE IS LITTERALLY ALL OVER THE MAP.

HER CLAIM TO HAVE A DOCTORATE DEGREE IS ALSO UNVERIFIED. NOTHING SHE HAS SAID PROVES ACTUAL, LONG OR SHORT TERM ASSOCIATION WITH TRUE SCIENCE.

SHE NEVER PUBLISHED ANY RESEARCH DATA, INSTEAD QUOTES HALF TRUTHS ABOUT EXISTING RESEARCH AND CLAIMS TO HAVE THE "ONLY SAFE" FORM OF ARGININE.

SHE DOES HAVE TALENT TO PRODUCE A PRODIGIOUS NUMBER OF GOOD LOOKING WEB SITES, PACKED WITH HOLLOW PHRASEOLOGY. PERHAPS, HER SUPPOSED, PH.D HAILS TO HER AMAZING ABILITY TO DAZZLE ANYONE TO BELIEVE SHE IS THE "QUEEN OF ARGININE."

THEN WE FOUND THAT SHE ADVOCATES SWALLOWING "COMPUTER CHIPS", WHICH, THUS FAR, HAS NEVER BEEN PROVEN TO LEAD TO ANYTING BUT STOMACH PAIN, AT BEST. WE SURE LAUGHED AT THAT ONE HERE AT THE LAB.

WHAT SHE ALSO HAS IS A UNDENIABLE, DEPLORABLE REPUTATION AMONG ANYONE WHO HAS EVEN ATTEMPTED TO DO BUSINESS WITH HER, HER HUSBAND OR COMPANY

THIS BECAME ALL TOO CLEAR WHEN WE SPOKE TO AGEL CORPORATE ASSOCIATES WHO WERE KIND ENOUGH TO PUT US IN CONTACT WITH SYNERGY WORLD WIDE. EXECUTIVES AT BOTH COMPANIES REPORT HAVING HAD A HORRENDOUS EXPERIENCE DEALING WITH HER. 

THEN THERE ARE SCORES OF OTHERS WHO REPORT THE SAME WHEN WE DID ASK AROUND.

CONCLUSION: HER PRODUCT IS INDEED SAVE TO INGEST, BUT DO NOT BE FOOLED TO PAY MORE THEN ABOUT 35 EURO OR 40 US DOLLARS AS IT ONLY COST ABOUT 4 DOLLARS TO PRODUCE A ONE MONTH SUPPLY.

WE CAN NOT SUPPORT HER HAVING DONE ANY QUALIFIED RESEARCH AND DO NOT KNOW IF, OR WHERE, SHE ACTUALLY RECEIVED A DEGREE, ANY DEGREE FOR THAT MATTER.

IF YOU NEED A NICE LOOKING WEB SITE WE DO ADVISE YOU CONTACT HER AS SHE HAS, AT LEAST, ABSOLUTELY PROVEN TO KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THAT WELL.

THIS WOMAN WOULD DO WELL CHECKING IN TO A MENTAL INSTITUTION AND LEAVE THE FIELD OF SCIENCE AND BUSINESS TO THOSE COMMITTED TO HONESTY, INTELLIGENCE AND DIGNITY.

FEEL FREE TO RESPOND TO THE LISTED E-MAIL ADDRESS. IF IT MAKES ANY SENSE WE WILL  MAKE SURE TO REPPLY.

A Couple of Points

AUTHOR: Just do a little research - ()

1: Her character was called into question when she allowsed her product to be marketed using fear tactics.  Intimating or outwrite stating (depending on which website you read) that l-Arginine (without her blind amino acid binding) causes death.  See the following link for the abstract: (((link redacted))).  A more balanaced conclusion that might be drawn from the study (if, indeed, any comclusion could be drawn from a study with such a small n and relative low power), would be than if you are over the age of 60 and have new onset ST segment elevation, DO NOT SUPPLEMENT Arginine (in any form).

2: Just because someone was featured in an article in the Wall Street Jounral, or was invited to speak at a conference, or whatever... this does not make them an expert in their field, does not lend any extra validity to their research (if there was any), or gravitas to any claims they have made.  To believe that is does is an exercise in circular logic.  And has, in this instance, lead to the circular self-promoting internet sites.  Just as Oprah Winfrey had a futurist/psychic on her show  who was predicting mass earth shifts, flooding, etc., etc., still... none of his predictions came true.

3: Keeping an open mind:  Just visit the following websites and ask yourself which ones you think are legitimate:

(((link redacted)))

(((link redacted)))

(((link redacted)))

She's done all this an no Wikipedia page?!!?  Must be a clerical error.

(((link redacted)))

(((link redacted)))

Somewhat better.  And the second one is a product that used to use her "version" of l-arginine (but... *gasp*... with l-cutrilline in it too, which she says is BAD).

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0010649/

There we go.  But be careful... actual science!

Really? This was when she graduated with a BSN?

AUTHOR: Just do a little research - ()

According to her own survival story website, she was working for the EPA on scholarship while working towards her PhD some time before 1983.  This time at the EPA is when she was exposed to PCBs, again, from her own claims from videos on Youtube.

Again... Bogus.

Nobel Nominee?

AUTHOR: Just do a little research - ()

From Nobelprise.org:

"In the month of September, the respective Nobel Committees send invitations to thousands of qualified individuals to submit names of candidates for the following year. Around 200-300 names are submitted since the same candidate can be nominated by several persons. The names of the nominees cannot be revealed until 50 years later."

The above is, for all intents and purposes, a cut and paste from one of her own websites.  

Completely fraudulent.

#5 General Comment

Your attack on Dr, Carl Hallberg, Ph.D

AUTHOR: ArthurJohnson - (United States of America)

Mr. Chris Golden,

I have read every single comment posted on this subject and while I can see good bad and ugly throughout the whole thread, I found your post particularly interesting.

You attack Dr. Hallberg, Ph.D for using bad grammar and poor spelling. You also state that you wouldn't want him to be YOUR doctor! Did you read Dr. Hallberg's background before going on your rant? If so, you should have been able determine that Dr. Hallberg has never claimed to be a medical doctor. You should also have been able to conclude that Dr. Hallberg is Swedish which means that English is his second (or even third, fourth or fifth) language which means that his English is probably better than your Swedish!

So, to criticize Dr. Hallberg for his poor spelling and bad grammar and to accuse him of being retarded is in poor taste and shows a high level of ignorance on your part. Why didn't you stick to facts instead of attacking him for his spelling and bad grammar?

May I ask what academic credentials you have Mr. Golden? I doubt that English language is one of them because your own text carries many examples of poor grammar and incorrect spellings. And you say that Dr. Halleberg is retarded? Tut tut Mr. Golden!

Here's a quote from your text Mr. Golden, where you attack Dr. Hallberg for using bad grammar and poor spelling:

Let's see YOUR products on here, or the ability to see the results. 
Let's see what you can do.  I mean, except for piss and moan cause Dr Allen is smarter than you and can obviously market her products better than you.  I think your sore about that "Doctor."  And "Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D.,"  you have the worse spelling and grammer that I have seen.  You call yourself a doctor, but your blog reads like a comment from a teenager on Facebook.  Only long, and meaner, but with the same poor grammer and lack of intelligence. 


Basically, I have highlighted and underlined four spelling errors and I won't even attempt to correct your poor sentence structure and punctuation errors! By the way Mr. Golden, the text box you wrote in highlights incorrect spellings. Didn't you see your highlighted errors?

I have no doubt that you may have benefited from using products formulated by Ann de Wees Allen, ND, but your statements carry no more credibility than anecdotal observations. You claim to have seen the research papers. If they exist, why doesn't Ann de Wees Allen, ND make them available for peer review? Her refusal simply raises questions about her credibility because scientists are usually eager to receive peer review of their work!

You may also wish to consider who else you criticize in your uneducated rant. Your comments on Synergy are purely speculative and their corporate attorney's may not appreciate you making statements about the company "watering down" its products! Really Mr. Golden? Can you prove that? I think you are speculating again!

You had your rant and you had an opportunity to present some credible evidence to support Ann de Wees Allen, ND but all you accomplished was making yourself look, dare I say it, "retarded" because as an English speaking person, you actually make more spelling and grammatical errors than Dr. Hallberg who is Swedish. Maybe Dr. Hallberg should continue his commentary in Swedish!

So far as Ann de Wees Allen, ND is concerned, she is a brilliant marketer. Are her products better than other formulations? Maybe or maybe not. She is known to be an extremely difficult individual to work with but allegedly, so was Steve Jobs! That said, it seems that Ann de Wees Allen, ND, uses fear based marketing tactics to elevate her own products. For example, she is either up front or makes veiled statements that other L-Arginine formulations are unsafe for use over the long term. Really? Does she define "Long Term" and has she carried out independent research to validate her comments? Basically, she has a knack of implying, without actually saying, that unless you use her products, you are putting your health at risk. See, fear based tactics!

Questions I'd be asking are:

1 - If she claims to have a ND degree, where did she get it from?
Ordinarily, this shouldn't be important but Ann de Wees Allen makes such a big thing about being referred to as Dr. Allen that she could help herself in the academic scientific community by stating where her degree is from.

2 - Where can the clinical trials be found and who actually carried out the studies? She frequently refers to these studies and implies that they are on HER products. Are they double blind studies on HER products and if so, who carried them out? They MUST be independently carried out to have real credibility!

3 - Where are the patents? I understand that they can be found on the USPTO web site but why does she feel it necessary to make interested people spend hours trying to find them? This is so unusual and again, does not assist her in gaining peer group acceptance.

4 - Who owns the Glycemic Research Institute she often refers to and what work does it actually carry out above and beyond that of Ann de Wees Allen's own interests? The GRI is often referred to and for may people, it appears to be an independent laboratory in Washington D.C. I am not convinced that it is independent from Ann de Wees Allen, ND and further more, I'm not sure that it is staffed and carrying out research on products other than her own! But, I may be wrong. Why doesn't Ann de Wees Allen, ND clarify her involvement and the true work of the GRI? And if anyone thinks that answering with a "She doesn't have to" comment is being smart, it isn't. Again, it does nothing for her acceptance in the scientific community.

5 - Why has Ann de Wees Allen REALLY moved from one place to another so frequently? Surely, not everyone that she's been involved with have tried to "steal" her work or force her to downgrade the quality and integrity of her products! And know this: Ann de Wees Allen, ND, has been involved with more businesses than have been highlighted in this thread!

There are probably many other questions that could be asked but on the other hand, have any of her products actually done harm to her users?

So, Mr. Golden, the next time you decide to go on a rant and attack someone, do your own research and think before you criticize a non English speaking person that has more academic credentials than you. Use a spell and grammar check or ask someone that is smarter than you to read your work. And finally, be very careful about making loose (yes Mr. Golden, "loose" is the correct word here. You used "loose" in your text when you should have used "lose") comments about a company and their products e,g, Synergy Worldwide, Inc.

Dr, Hallberg; I do agree with Mr. Golden that you sometimes attack the person and don't stick to the issue of product viability. This leaves you open to criticism and people without a real defense to put forward on behalf of Ann de Wees Allen, ND, focus on that and not the real issue!

Ann de Wees Allen, ND, has been known to sue or threaten to bring suit against people for the slightest known or unknown infringement but it's interesting that Dr. Hallberg hasn't been sued yet. Hmm, maybe he's on to something!

Sincerely
AJ

A final word

AUTHOR: Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D. - (Sweden)

You may not like my way of presenting my case or my lack of control over the English language. All true since I am not a trained writer nor born in an English speaking country. I am Swedish, trained in Chemistry and don't speak English all that often. All I have been asked to do is make an evaluation of Ann de Wees Allen and what we found was overwhelming evidence that she needs a mental check-up and has done little but blow smoke up everyones bum with her misleading claims.



Arginine, if taken in combination with other amino acids can indeed do a lot of good for the body but to combine it with sugar (fructose) and other non-effective ingredients is simply a scam. There are several arginine based products that do exactly the same Pro-argi-9 does and for a fraction of the price without some fake Doctor blabbing garbage. Also if you read all my posts it should have been clear that I've said that her product may work but no more than some other arginine blends we tested.



It's her b. s statements and idiotic business methods that we found appaling and riled up against. Discredit me all day long if you like but know that anyone with half a brain who reviewed her claims will side with me in a nano second. Ask any Ph. D. in chemical engeneering and get back to me.

#7 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I have had part in Synergy, Agel, and Boresha

AUTHOR: TEACG - (United States of America)

To all who have been following this post, I'm sure this will solve nothing, but will hopefully get some of you thinking.  I no long have a dog in this fight, I just hate to see someone get slammed like Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D." is slamming Dr Allen.  He presents his case poorly, and comes off as unintelligent.  I have been out of the "L-ARginine" loop for sometime, and went to do some research online to find who is NOW selling Dr Allen's product.

I say "now" since I know that in a short period of time that I have been using the product and have known her (personally) she has move her L-Arginine several times.  I'll get to that in a bit.

To JS, and others, I have heard the glowing testimonies of others who's lives were changed by Dr Allens product.  And am myself a product user.  Because of who I knew, I had access to her website that is for doctors only, and I have personally seen the research.

I started taking this product when it was sold as Proargi9 with Synergy.  Syngergy was started by a man who cared about peoples health and wanted to change peoples lives.  Long story short, he gathered effective natural products to help people, to include Dr Allens product.  The products that I saw that worked the best, were the DNA Repair Cream, the Vitapak, and the Proargi9.  Syngery was a rising star earning people a great deal of money.  I came to Synergy very very skeptical, but willing to give it a shot. 

I had a thyroid issue and other small things steming from that, and I needed a change.  I knew people who were personally helped by these above mentioned products, and I figured what did I have to loose.  The products worked!!  Skin issues were being taken care of with the DNA Repair Cream.  I did not need meds after taking the L-Arginine.  I put these products through the test.  Acutally, I was so skeptical and couldn't appreciate the prices at first, that I found other places to buy them, like Ebay. 

I was very close friends with Dr Allens friends soon after joining the company.  I met them through my sister.  After sometime, Dr Allen pulled her product.  Word had it, that Synergy tried to force her to give them her patient/formula.  She refused and left. 

I have to believe this is what happened.  Because, I soon watched a change with the rest of Synergy's products.  They had labels switched on the skin care line.  The DNA Repair Cream no longer worked. And so on.  We tend to focus on the fact she left, leaving a mess, but has anyone done any real research into Synergy?  I'd say not.  Not at least on this blog.  Synergy "watered down" their products, or changed the formula.  That's what the results shown.

She went to Agel.  Why she left, I have no idea.  I do know that she went to another company before going to Boresha.  To get the discounts, I joined Boresha, but due to a difficult economy, I couldn't justify spending that much for coffee. 

I could go on like JS about the testimonials of others and myself.  I'll put it simply, Dr Allens L-Arginine works.  And anyone who has tried it, and has done so according to her proticol, will agree. 

I will agree with the person who started this that Dr Allen hops around to much for my liking.  I quit joining these MLM's for that reason.  I wasn't going to follow her like some groupie, but I always stayed in contant with those that did so I could get my hands on her product.

I agree that I think her product is over priced.  Do I know if her claim is true that her's is safe and everyone else's is not?  No idea.  I'm not a biochemist.  I can only go by personal results.  I will say this also, I had the "wrong" form of L-Arginine, the HCL, and it did mess me up. 

Like I said, I know her close friends who have been to her home on several occasions, and to say the woman has no money....you're an idiot.  No, a "retard."  She is very wealthy.

She is energetic, has a heart to help people.  She had taken time to help me along with another doctor from here in Colorado.  She has changed lives.  The lives of my friend (who was bedridden for two years), my sister and myself.  I know when it's working and not.  I know when I recieve a bad shippment because of how my body reacts.  So Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D., as one person had mentioned, what is your true purpose for dogging this woman out?  Calling her unprofessional names.  My guess is, you're not a real doctor, but probably someone who did not do well in the business because you do not know how to talk to people, and you blame everyone else for your own short comings. 

Further, to say after all of our testimonials, and her resereach, that she knows nothing, is a retard or should be locked up is insane.  Maybe you should be locked up.  Better yet, maybe you should be grounded from the computer.  Let's see YOUR research on here.  Let's see you make an L-Arginine that is equivelent to hers.  Better yet, let's see you actually back up all of your previous statements with facts.  All you do is rant, but you show nothing.  Period. 

Let's see YOUR products on here, or the ability to see the results.  Let's see what you can do.  I mean, except for piss and moan cause Dr Allen is smarter than you and can obviously market her products better than you.  I think your sore about that "Doctor."  And "Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D.,"  you have the worse spelling and grammer that I have seen.  You call yourself a doctor, but your blog reads like a comment from a teenager on Facebook.  Only long, and meaner, but with the same poor grammer and lack of intelligence. 

One more thing, you make a statment that she says to eat computer chips.  You are a retard for sure.  If you listen to her and if you actually READ her reports, she likens her product to an edible computer chip.  I just wanted to set the record straight for those who also did not do their research, and just followed the good doctor here blindly. 

In conclussion, again, you present your case poorly, and with little intelligence and with poor spelling and grammer.  Further, with what you say and how you say it, I sure wouldn't want you to be my doctor. 

Have a wonderful day!!

Sincerely,
Chris Golden

Yes there are exceptions of course!

AUTHOR: Cr new york - (U.S.A.)

In response to your previous posting ...



"Ok JS you are roped and tied....no problem. Your experience with her has been good. You will overpay for her product, and be happy about it. There are always exceptions to the rule for sure. You are one. However, let the collective negative experiences of many, many people over much time with several companies, reveal to you her lack of ethics and moral character. I need say no more to you, for the blind will never see... LOL! Lucky you......."



Yea, it is true she is roped and tied! You can try all you wish, but to convince her otherwise (regarding Allen's character and ethics) would be fruitless. Many hundreds and now possibly thousands of people all speak of her lack of honesty and moral character, and downright missleading and unethical behaviors. They speak from personal experience as I do. If several or maybe even dozens speak of her in a positive way, it is still OVERWHELMINGLY NEGATIVE ON BALANCE !!! I used her overpriced product with good results as I have stated. But read all of the other information I have provided regarding her actions to undermine me after a HUGE effort at marketing her product to Pro Football teams.



Where there is smoke there is fire. Figure that out and you will save yourself the grief associated with any dealings with her. Oh, and I have purposely posted my picture on a previous post here so she can and WILL recognize me if ever she reads this paper trail of exposure!

Speaking of the blind will never see, I apologize that my initial question to you in response to your statement about the products being over priced got lost in my lengthy reply. Clearly you didnt SEE my question because you didnt respond to it.

So let me resubmit to you this one YES or NO question.

Do you think that the man who was able to get off of an insulin pump by drinking the Boresha Coffee thinks that $100 per month is overpriced?

Very Overpriced?

AUTHOR: Jennifer Strickland - (United States of America)

Very overpriced?  Do you think that the man who was able to get off an insulin pump thinks the products are overpriced?  The woman who doesnt have to take pain meds every day, do you think she thinks it is overpriced?  Considering the products to be overpriced is a subjective statement based on each individuals situation.

I spend $200 per month on products for myself. I look better and feel better than I have in over 12 years without crazy dieting or medication for my narcolepsy.  $200Thats a BARGAIN!

I have met Dr. Allen and had conversations with her personally at 3 different events.  She took almost an hour of her time after a meeting to talk with my friend who has Addisons disease.  Unethical?  Questionable character?  Again, actions speak louder than words.  That is not what I have personally experienced.

Is she wacky?  Absolutely!  Some of the most brilliant people I know are whacky.  I would question a person who claimed to be brilliant and wasnt wacky.  You should read up on some of the crazy stuff that Einstein used to do.

I think a person can also be judged by the company they keep.  Look up Bruce Levitin who is the current COO of Boresha.  He spent 18 years with Home Depot as the Vice President.  He has extensive experience with multi BILLION dollar companies.  This is a man that could write his own ticket at most any company, but he CHOSE Boresha.

Does she have an ego? Absolutely!  Do I blame her?  NO!  Why? She has spent almost 30 years of her life on science and theories that have been discredited by her peers.  Now the scientific community is coming out with proof that what she has been saying all along is correct.  Dr. Oz recently said that the 2 ways to combat diabetes and obesity are with fat burning (thermogenics) and natural hormones (growth hormones).  Dr Allen has the world ONLY fat burning coffee.  The fat burning tea she developed is the ONLY non-drug product on the market that specifically targets the genetic risk factors for obesity in humans. If you made those wouldnt you be a little proud?  Especially if everyone around you had been discrediting the research you had devoted your life to.   Her L-Argenine product is the only L-Argenine product that naturally increases the bodys production of growth hormone. The other way that doctors and researchers are saying is necessary to battle diabetes and obesity.

I can send you a couple of articles by doctors independent of Boresha that backs her science and research.  I dont have access to them at this time.  Articles from Dr. Oz would be pretty easy to find.

So

Overpriced?  Thats relative. Ego?  Yes, and well deserved. So what? Ethics? Excellent. Based on my personal experience with meeting her as well as the President, Vice President and COO of the company. Science?  Solid.  There are over 50 legal claims that have been approved by the FDA. That is posted all over their websites. If a company was making false statements about FDA legal claims exactly how long do you think the FDA would allow them to stay in business?

You can also get answers directly from the company if you would like.  Just email  info@boreshacoffee.com

Results speak louder than words

AUTHOR: Jennifer Strickland - (United States of America)

I have been using Dr. Allen's Boresha products for a year and a half now.  I was a lifetime dieter and was diagnosed with borderline narcolepsy 12 years ago. Doctors prescribed me Ritalin that I was to take twice a day if I wanted to have any energy and not be dangerous behind the wheel of a car. I didn't want to take a pill so I drank extra coffee.  Through Dr. Allen I learned that regular coffee spikes your blood sugar and makes you FAT. Plus, you would get an initial energy surge, but you would also crash soon after.

This April will be one year that I have kept off 35 pounds of fat that I burned off by drinking her fat burning coffee and tea.  Plus, I have more energy then I have ever had.  No pills, and no dieting. 

I met a man from Georgia who was able to get off of an Insulin pump by switching to this coffee.

I met a man from Colorado who had to have his thyroid removed and so always struggled with his weight.  In 90 days he burned off 46 pounds of fat and 41 inches.

A very close friend of mine had to quit her job last May because the stress was worsening her health issues.  She could have qualified for disability. She has Addison's disease, fibromyalgia and is a carrier of Lupus.  Using the ARG Matrix she now takes NO medication and feels better then she has in over 10 years. 

I am a distributor, and proud to be one.  With the results that I have experienced and the life changing results I have personally seen in others, why wouldn't I be?

So here is my question:

If you have all these statements that say that all of her science is a bunch of bull, but the results of using her products prove otherwise, what carries more weight?

If I were to tell you that something is a bunch of bull, but you saw people getting amazing results, which would you believe?  What you read, or what you saw for yourself?

The age old saying, "Actions speak louder than words", still holds true in this situation.

AUTHOR: Cr new york - (U.S.A.)

    I was involved with Dr Allen when she was with Synergy and used her ProArgi9 product. I was a serious amateur bodybuilder and found her product to be equavilent to other products on the market, however greatly overpriced.
    As a Synergy distributor, I and my partner John Lance sucessfully contacted every Pro football trainer at a tremendous effort and cost. We promoted this ProArgi9 product to each Pro team. Our only response was from the trainer at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who informed us several of his players used this product, but it was not officially sanctioned by the team. However it was thoroughly checked out before allowing these players to take it, and it was "approved".
    Several days later I got a personal phone call from doctor Allen (we exchanged numbers at a Synergy meeting) telling me to cease all contact and all marketing efforts with the Buccaneers, as this was her baby.
    After choosing to continue, I was a guest on a local FL radio show and did a 45 minute spot regarding several of Synergys products, including ProArgi9. She got wind of this (it's her home turf) and in another call made to me threatened a lawsuit for using her name on the show. We felt we were up against a formitable legal challenge, so we withdrew our efforts.
    Shortly thereafter she left Synergy and took her product with her. She has since moved on from that company,  and is associated with another, to the best of my knowlege.
    She sure didn't act like a "straight shooter" with us in our Synergy dealings. As a matter of fact, the experience left us questioning her integrity and henceforth the integrity of any company/product she is associated with.
    Voodoo science, overpriced products, marketed by a professional "confidence" woman is what I experienced.

She is a lunatic indeed!

AUTHOR: Estelle de Cloutier - (France)

Whoa, what a good thing this happened!

Finally someone who stood up and did something about this woman.

She (Ann de Wees) came to a AGEL meeting and made one wild, unsupported claim after the next.

She then also promised several friends that they could represent her in several US markets and never followed through.

These people had done business with many others before without any hick-ups to then suddenly be caught in her bs was tragic.
This Dr. Carl Hallberg maybe a bit harsh but he is absolutely right as far as that there is not one sane person who would do business with her.

That is all I have to say to this.

More Fuel For the Fire Than a "Rebuttal"

AUTHOR: Ezra M. - (United States of America)

First and foremost, allow me to say that I am perhaps one of if not THE most skeptical person on the face of the earth. No matter the claim, I am immediately inclined to write it off as utter nonsense until such a time that sufficient evidence with which to substantiate the claim can be provided.

I tried the ARGMatrix because my mother sent it to me out of concern that I was approaching 27 and stood at 6'3" and tipped the scales at a monstrous 130 pounds (sarcasm.) Outside of the Army (and I challenge anyone with a similiar physique to enlist and NOT gain weight) it is unbelievably difficult for me to gain weight. The product worked, I've gained 10 pounds since but this isn't the point of my post.

I attended a "tasting" party featuring the various products from Boresha with my mother. I figured whatever, if nothing else it's a way to spend some time with her. The person hosting the party mentioned Mrs. Allen and her various accomplishments and whatnot which included having an IQ of 244. I realize that the numerical results tend to fluctuate depending upon both the test being administered and the scale that it is scored against. I myself am of fairly high intelligence and as such, I have an immense interest in all matters regarding human intelligence. When I heard 244, I immediately wanted to cry shenanigans. I am no expert on the subject by ANY means nor would I ever claim to be so but I felt pressed to question how any person of such purported intelligence could possibly even function as a human being.

Another "fact" that was brought up was that she is the only known/recorded Stage IV (and please correct me if I am in anyway mistaken about this) cancer survivor. If that is indeed true then I am happy for her. I've had multiple cancer related deaths on both sides of my family and one who survived by the skin of his teeth so I know the pain attributed to cancer and the jubilation one experiences after having survived it.

I'm an avid user of Wikipedia. As to whether or not the majority of if not all of the information from their website is 100% factual I couldn't say but thus far I've been given no reason as to why it isn't mostly factual at the VERY least. Naturally, I wanted to research Mrs. Allen to get to the bottom of my misgivings about her supposed IQ and at the same time, learn more about her battle with cancer. All I got was a polite message that that page didn't exist. As to whether or not this can be attributed to her having her name trademarked I do not know. Regardless, I find that to be more than a little suspicious. Not nearly as suspicious as there being absolutely NO mention of where she obtained her degree but suspicious nonetheless. 

In closing, I'd simply like to say that I honestly care very little whether or not she is legitimate. If she is then great. If she isn't well then, congratulations on such a tremendous scam that may or may not rival the scam revolving around Y2K and the scam Al Gore has going with global warming. I personally haven't come to a conclusion on the latter but as I mentioned at the beginning, I may very well be the most skeptical person in the world so unless AllahBuddahKrishna Clause himself descends from on high to spell it out for me, I will continue to believe the world to consist of nothing but liars unless they can prove otherwise (not that I am so arrogant that I believe they should feel so compelled and/or obligated to prove anything to me.)

Some links to satisfy those who like to get a glimpse of the lunacy

AUTHOR: Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D. - (Sweden)

Look at the following links and enjoy:
  (((REDACTED))) This is posted by one of many people who ask the same question that I have asked all along: where did she get that Ph.D, and PLEASE list the details of your personal survival story.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxXxDRPrVw8 After sputtering through the many false claims about Arginine (that is dangerous and causes male invertility) she never worked with Synergy and when she left to join AGEL she pulled the same stunt: to hype up the product and then leave everyone hanging with questions after she sprinkled the distributors and consumers alike with false, unfounded quotes and non-existing data.

Here are the many links to her webs sites that only serve one purpose: to create the illusion that she is ''involved'' with a lot of action...when in fact these web sites are all created her own staff!
Look and learn from the deception: 
www.anndeweesallen.com
www.nuvogenetea.com/research.htm
(((REDACTED)))

Here a link that shines light on her zealous attempt to stem use of her name...as if that name is worth a dime!
(((REDACTED)))

Study all the comments via the link below as it will illustrate how her lies poisoned the minds of gullible consumers: (((REDACTED)))

Some folks will rant and rave and call her sputterings on low-glycemic research ''unparalleled'' and they are right...for its deceptive nature and unfounded character!

Also note that she left Synergy before sales of ''her'' inspired Arginine product took off and that she also left AGEL when hundreds joined thinking that she was going to be part of it when in fact she lied about nearly all of her data and never showed up when rooms filled with desperate distributors were left without her.

Here another web page questioning her integrity: (((REDACTED)))

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYxy9JwEqCA
If you look at this clip you see what true deception looks like. ''The Queen of Arginine'', what the hell? LISTEN to what my NY based co-researcher call a ''whack job!'' After seeing this and all the other clips it shouldn't be too surprising that people run away from this woman? She doesn't even show or list this so called ''Hershe's research.

I close by asking any of you to find another so called ''scientist'' who has published a comparable amount of hot-air and issued as many false claims. People like her don't end up well. We deal with real scientist every day and NON OF THEM has a tail this long...made up by absolute garbage.Ann's tail is not only long but is studded with dingle berries, and I am not even sure if they are low-glycemic!

But I have to admit, she is funny...at times, and what she should be doing is become a stand-up commedian....and stop selling lies for truth.

Ann de Wees-William Bloomfiled

AUTHOR: Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D. - (Sweden)

Mr. Bloomfield, thank you for your frank and short post.
Not only did you point exactly at the facts it illustrates the zealous, blind and selfish motivation of those who benefit from ''Dr.'' Allen's lies and show-mastership.

It is shocking that even an MD (Mitsos) would lower himself to promote the absurd imago of a proven charlatan, sociopathic liar.
All for profit made on the backs of those who are ripped-off buying in to the de ''Dr'' Allen nonsense.

Since my first posting I received 61 e-mails confirming the vile and delusional nature of ''Dr'' Allen and nothing since has urged me to either rescind or change any of my warnings.

If people want Arginine products they can find many good alternatives over Synergy's version which are ''inspired'' and sold by Allen suck-up's the likes of Dr's. Prendergast and Mitsos...for a lot less money and without the falsehoods.

I am not getting in to the long-winded, b.s report by Mitsos, but the fact that this fellow would even write ''Blind Amino Rider'' already tells us what an idiot he really is.

What the hell is a ''Blind Amino Rider'' ?!
If Mitsos just said ''Sugar'' I could actually go along with that part of the nonsense.

Then, to touch on one more ridiculous claim, where is all that scientific evidence that ''independents'' have to show Pro-Argi 9 is actually any different than, lets say, Solgars or any other brand?

Any way, I am greatly enjoying the course this blog is taking...as it clearly puts a lunatic, liar against the wall, where she belongs.

In closing: if people feel that my 'tone'''and verbage is an indication of a lack of credibility I have nothing to say other then: you can point at me all you want...call me a ''school boy'', while you suck up to those who deceive you with their polished, haute-couture language as they stride across the cat-walk of deception and ask you to pay top-dollar for absolute noting but chlorated sugar and Arginine.

While I am busy adding millions of dollars to our corporate bottom-line you can believe the lies that de Wees Allen is supposedly selling anything but hot-air...
So, please let me see the contract showing Ann sells ''millions'' worth of her product per month to anyone but Mickey Mouse.

For me, having to hold-back and speak ''nice'' all day long, this is a perfect out-let to blow off some panted-up steam and tell how it is.
So, instead of objecting against my choice of words I also suggest the ignorant among the readers to devote time on true research and then get back to me with some sound arguments.

Dr. Allen: In A Class by Herself

AUTHOR: Dr. Mitsos - (United States of America)

In my view Dr. Allen is the preeminent expert in the field of human biochemistry as related to the glycemic index and its effect on the obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemic.  She is also the #1 scientist in the world in the field of l-arginine research and product development.

Dr. Allen is in on the cutting edge of scientific breakthroughs, including the Glycemic Index, Brain Glycemic Index, Cephalic Response, Adipose Tissue Fat Storage, Fat Cell Key Codes, Obesity, Diabetes, Childhood Obesity, Low Glycemic Food Development, Low Glycemic Glycoside Sweeteners, L-Arginine, Blind Amino Acid, Riders, L-Arginine Isofrom Pathways, Genetic Polymorphisms in Dysregulated Arginine Metabolism Sickle Cell & Thalassemia; Edible Computer Chips, Soft Particle Nanotechnology, Human Maximum Performance in Athletes, Non-fattening, diabetic-friendly chocolate candy and ice cream.

Dr. Allen was awarded the first Glycemic Patent, the first l-Arginine Patent, the first Sickle Cell Patent, and is credited with the discovery that L-Arginine is a Blind Amino Acid, which led to her discoveries on the mechanism for formulating safe L-Arginine.

Dr. Allen knew about the risks of using L-Arginine without a blind amino acid rider long before this Johns Hopkins study: The medical doctors were confused, but Dr Allen had the knowledge from her advanced research.

 JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (JAMA)
Vol. 295 No 1, January 4, 2006
L-Arginine Therapy in Acute Myocardial Infarction 
The Vascular Interaction With Age in Myocardial Infarction (VINTAGE MI) Randomized Clinical Trial 
Steven P. Schulman, MD et al

Division of Cardiology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, USA

It is no surprise because she had a 20 year head start and currently has over 250,000 clinical trials of l-Arginine with no negative side effects.

Dr. Allen's patent licensing has generated over a billion dollars and continues to break all global records in licensing-technology.

Anyone out there who has not sold over a billion dollars of anything would not be in a position to question the value of her science and products.

Dr. Allen heads the Glycemic Research Institute in Washington D.C., Dr. Allen has made more discoveries in glycemic food technology than any other scientist worldwide.  The Glycemic Research Institute is the only Glycemic government Certification trial laboratory in the United States, and is also authorized by the United Kingdom and Canadian Governments.

It is my understanding that the government fee for laboratory certification is 5 million dollars.

On June 19, 2009 Dr Allen was asked to address the World Health Organization (World Sickle Cell Conference) at the United Nations. At this event she donated $100 million dollars worth of patents for the natural treatment of sickle cell anemia.

Dr. Allen was the first woman scientist ever to speak at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic and helped Mr. Universe, Ron Coleman in winning his title.

Dr. Allen has done research for Proctor & Gamble, Hershey foods and Cargill (a corporation with revenues of over 100 billion dollars).

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 1998 was awarded to Robert F Furchgott, Louis J Ignarro and Ferid Murad for their discoveries concerning "the nitric oxide as a signalling molecule in the cardiovascular system".

It is my understanding that Dr. Ignarro purchases millions of dollars worth of Dr. Allen's L-Arginine monthly.

In addition Dr. Allen herself was nominated for a Nobel prize for her research in Sickle cell anemia.

I could go on and on....... by the way, do you think the average person out there knows what schools Albert Einstein attended?  Did Einstein have an MD degree or a PhD?  Does it really matter?

I have had the pleasure of working with some very talented physicians on a daily basis: MD, DO, DPM, DMD, DDS, DC.  I can tell you that I don't care where they went to school.  I do care about the results they get and how they are able to help people with their many talents and abilities that comes from year of experience in their specialized fields.

I have seen first hand the power of Dr. Allen's products on myself. my family, my patients and my friends.  I have seen these benefits: significant reduction in body fat, balanced blood sugar levels, increased muscle mass, improved sexual health and increased energy levels.

The bottom line is that Dr. Allen's products have and will continue to impact the health and improve the quality of life for millions of people around the world.

Dr. Allen is in a class by herself.

Sincerely,

Dr. Mitsos

''Dr'' Allen is a RN, not a Doctor as she is alluding

AUTHOR: Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D. - (Sweden)

Again, we are not in the Arginine business. We develop skin and haircare as well as protein products.

There are a lot of people in the supplement business and Naomi Allen (Ann de Wees Allen) is one of them.
What makes her different is the long list of people she leaves behind that have either directly been negatively effected of indirectly been abused when those who offering Allen's Pro-Argi 9 have been unable to continue to provide them with the product because of Allen's ridiculous antics, or had to pay far too much for it. She either reneged on deals or ''changes her mind.''
We already covered all of her false and misleading claims.

We have contacted the authors of the 56 e-mails we received about her and only a few have allowed us to publish them. The majority fear meritless legal challenges by Allen.

The fact that she chooses to call her self ''Doctor'' when in fact she is an RN, a registered Nurse at best, is one of many signs of her megalomania and sociopathic, narcissism.

Also let me remind the many readers of this blog that we have not condemned her Arginine product but pointed at the simple fact that NON of her claims are backed by science, and or that she has done something ''special'' to make it any better than competing products.

Her product delivers most of the signs that all Arginine products offer, be it at a much higher price and with an above average percentage of sugar added to it.
It is her lack of honesty, her ridiculous attitude and nonsensical claims of heritage that lead to this long-winded report on her. And, as was to be expected, it has had enormous success. Many, many are now steering clear from this demented soul.
 
And as far as her sob-story of personal recovery: we are glad that she conquered a potentially fatal medical condition but to ride it for every tear-drop in order to urge people to buy her products is one of her cheap, misleading and abusive methods.
 
In closing: We LOVE to hear from any independent scientists (with a Ph.D. in Chemistry) to step forward and vouch for her and her claims....we are waiting.

Ann DeWees Allen - Master Marketer

AUTHOR: kprehm - (United States of America)

I have been with Synergy Worldwide for almost 7 years, and the first 3 were part of the time frame that Ann DeWees marketed ProArgi9.

To the person that suggested she must be legit or otherwise she couldn't be head of the Glycemic Research Institute, it doesn't take much time to realize IT IS HER COMPANY!  She is great at setting up one company to "certify" the other companies products that she also OWNS.  She is a masterful marketer, and I can find no evidence of any traditional schooling that would give her the title of Dr. Maybe naturopath through the mail?

I have heard her personally tell her tearful survival story, and it definitely differs in small ways from the one in print.  Dr. Linus Pauling was the person to "heal her", and it was the EPA that supposedly let her as a college intern (once again, what college?) work with live PCBs which supposedly caused her to have esophogeal cancer and stomach removed, replaced with a plastic one, etc. etc.  From my research, the EPA has told me that if I can come up with the college she went to, they will verify the story, but to the best of their knowledge, no one would have been working with PCBs at the time of her alleged encounter.

Can anyone find me the college she would have attended - probably during the 70s so I can get back with the EPA?

She is one masterful promoter!  She had us convinced that without a "blind amino acid rider" her patented kiwi sweetner - that the arginine wouldn't work or else not be safe.  B.S.!  As pointed out, all the research she cites as evidence about the power of arginine, NONE have used ANY of her formulas as the test arginine!  That should tell you something!

So obvious...

AUTHOR: alphavortex - (Canada)

I am an end consumer.  I have tried a couple different L-arginine products and while I do agree they are overpriced, they are quite remarkable.  I have reaped the benefits.  My reason for registering and posting is this : They guy knocking Dr. Ann de Wees is incredibly obvious that they are a competitor.  Further, they are knocking themselves by posting unsubstantiated remarks in such an unprofessional manner.  They sound like a high school kid arguing...  Calling the competition a "retard" and such is a lame way to discredit them.  If I were to knock someone, I would post links and details to the facts.  They choose not to and just say, google it...  Take everyone with a grain of salt is my advise - from either side.  I have been doing research on the ingredients and there is an insane amount of information to read with 99% of it being positive.  I have recently switched from Pro-Nitric to Pro-argi9 mainly because of the sweetener used.  I'd like to see the prices drop though :)

My advice here is : Be Constructive!  You'll get more intelligent people taking you serious.  No one in their right mind could take this guy hammering on Dr. Ann serious but maybe there is truth in some things he has to say albeit it's impossible to credit them in this type of delivery.

I will not give any further infromation of who I am. Anyone can see who I am by doing a name  search. Besides, I am not the one on the ''stand'' here. And also not looking forward to spend time defending statements for which anyone can find credible evidence.

So, no, I am not going to give any further private information, only to serve a bunch of frauds whose success rides a pack of lies. I don't lose or make money by saying anything I have so far but I am confident it has saved many a hefty dime by avoiding this zealous liar.

Instead of sniffing at my door you should satisfy your desire to be Sherlock Holmes and go and look at what that great "Dr.'' buddy of yours pulls out of her phony, ''Royal'' top hat.

You are more than welcome to discredit me all you want...as in the end you are just another moron who'se efforts to suck up to a scammer will prove to be as much a waste of time as dealing with her on every other level.

are independent. Because if you really looked at all of her claims and antics (on also You Tube)
you wouldn't even waste time defending this lunatic. Again, all of these so called ''supporting web
sites'' are all owned by her and not by independent scientist, as non would touch this retard with a
ten foot pole. We have yet to speak to an actual Ph.D. who admits doing business with her.

We have too many friends and associates that suffered losses because of her nonsense.
We are not in the production or development of products that have anything to do with hers
or are even remotely related. We develop skin care/treatments and whey/peptide-protein based products.
We have been asked to analyze her product and her character because people we know have
been abused by her. As we have stated before: her product seems to be effective according to
all characteristics of L-Arginine, but not because ''Dr.'' Ann did anything to them or it contains any
special ingredients.

If you still doubt our findings why don't you give the woman a call and record her jabber and then
get back to us.
One conversation with her will end your desperate efforts to support her garbage.
Do know that we have several audio recordings of her. And if these defenders keep questioning us
and our integrity we will post these recordings and all e-mails related to this lunatic online.
Because this would put an end to her professional efforts we will only go that far if we are forced
to in deffence of our character.

If there is anything we can help you with let us know.

Dr Allen a scam?

AUTHOR: Cr new york - (U.S.A.)

I was involved with Dr Allen when she was with Synergy and used her ProArgi9 product. I was a serious amateur bodybuilder and found her product to be equavilent to other products on the market, however greatly overpriced. As a Synergy distributor, I and my partner John Lance sucessfully contacted every Pro football trainer at a tremendous effort and cost. We promoted this ProArgi9 product to each Pro team. Our only response was from the trainer at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who informed us several of his players used this product, but it was not officially sanctioned by the team. However it was thoroughly checked out before allowing these players to take it, and it was "approved". Several days later I got a personal phone call from doctor Allen telling me to cease all contact and all marketing efforts with the Buccaneers, as this was her baby. After choosing to continue I was a guest on a local FL radio show and did a 45 minute spot regarding several of Synergys products, including ProArgi9. She got wind of this (it's her home turf) and in another call made to me threatened a lawsuit for using her name on the show. We felt we were up against a formitable legal challenge, so we withdrew our efforts. Shortly thereafter she left Synergy and took her product with her. She has since moved on from that company,  and is associated with another, to the best of my knowlege. She sure didn't act like a "straight shooter" with us in our Synergy dealings. As a matter of fact, the experience left us questioning her integrity and henceforth the integrity of any company/product she is associated with. Voodoo science, overpriced products, marketed by a professional "confidence" woman is what I experienced. Submitted by William L

Who is Dr. Carl Hallberg and what is his motivation

AUTHOR: Dck - (U.S.A.)

I began to try the Boresha products and I have been doing some due diligence on the company and Dr Ann Dewees Allen. I read through the posts of Dr Carl Hallberg. It is not easy to find answers to his attacks and claims against Dr Allen. So I decided to contact the new CEO of Boresha who I recently met. I have asked him to review Dr Hallberg's accusations and provide some answers for me. The new CEO of Boresha has excellent credentials and he did a great deal of due diligence before accepting the position to become CEO

Although I could not refute your claims, I could not find any other hoax or complaints about Dr Allen anywhere else on line. Dr Allen has been around for years in the market, I think about 25 years. If she is as bad and fraudulent as Dr. Hallberg says shouldn't there be some others exposing her?

She definitely does seem eccentric to me and her bio is not openly available as well as details about her patents and methods of research are not clearly described. However Dr Hallberg makes some very aggressive accusations like "She has no money and is a fraud,end of story" and"she might as well check in to a mental institute right away. It is that simple."

My Question to you, Dr Hallberg is this: It seems clear to me that you have a vested interest in discrediting Dr Allen since you are trying develop an effective L Arginin product to compete with hers. What are your credentials and background that we should believe your statements? Also, please list 3 or 4 high credentialed colleagues who agree with your assessments?

Interlinked web sites

AUTHOR: Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D. - (Sweden)

To spell out a few points, when looking at Mrs. Allen's way of doing business undestand the following:

She has compiled existing medical research and taylored it to look as if she has either been involved with the creation of it or has done tests personally that would substantiate any ''expert'' commentary on the subject.

In particular the issue with Arginine supposedly killing people. Note that the subjects who died did so post-operative. Not from ''just'' taking a generic version of arginine. Also understand that the simple consumption of coffee or ephidrine could have triggered serious cardivascular trauma after a medical procedure of that magnitude.

She used this data to imply that only her form of arginine is safe, which is an absolute falsehood.

She does the same with sicklecell therapy, but fails to allow us to actually speak to the ''scientist'' that she supposedly works with.

She also, (hence earlier reference to her ''prodigiuos'' volume of web sites), is a master at building and linking self created websites that are smacked with titles and misleading info that do nothing but one thing: make her look good without any substance to back it all up, independently. (One scientist we spoke to said it well when writing us: ''she has mastered the impossible-to sell baked air.''   (trouble is, all of her web sites look alike and came obviously from the same web builder). Faking independent references about you is only going to work if you fool and use established forums to do so, NOT by building your own sites. Trouble is NO independent scientific (real) forum would allow her nor her ''science'' the light of day. She did fool the Washington Post, but only once. They have admitted the mistake and said to NEVER write about her again.

MLM companies, we have recently learned, need ''leaders' people that will go on strage and blab the most wonderful stuff. From EVERYTING we found is that she has given them (the MLM'ers) a wonderful ''story'' to be hauled around and send on stages to drive the MLM cattle in the right direction: sales

That is exactly why we see so many idiotic video vlips of her japping away about female orgasms and other nonsense. It is hard to not tear up when she goes in to her ''personal'' story-being saved by this phantom doctor who does so supposedly using  arginine but then fails to save the rest of the world with that same method. Just think about that for a minute: here is a ESTABLISHED MD who will save her (without telling anyone how) but then stops using the miraculous results on other patients nor write a detailed report about it, which he is obliged to by law, while working for a public hospital. Also do we love to know if he used L-Arginine in the form of powder, liquid, administered intravenously, oral...anyting at all?

We can go on for about ten more pages and if we need to we will. Let us not actually have to come up with a detailed scientific breakdown of her claims to prove the absolute waste of time this all has been, because once we do, she might as well check in to a mental institute right away. It is that simple.

We've done our research

AUTHOR: Dr. Carl Hallberg, Ph. D. - (Sweden)

The rebutal above really made us mad! That wasn't smart.

Let us just say this: It is simple, we spend three weeks on calls and interviewed 23 people. How much does it take to satisfy any rational human being to realize that if you are dealing with ''Dr'' Allen you are dealing with a mental patient. How else can we describe acurately a repertoire filled with such volume of falsehoods? We are stunned to ever come across anything like it in our 17 years developing products.

Then she has a HUGE ego to boot! (just enjoy looking at the You Tube clips).

We have recorded statements were she claims to be related to English royalty and is proud of it, no matter how far removed. As if that would give anyone a license to lie...

Again, if her computer chip comments don't do it for you just read her prolific web sites filled with hollow claims, perhaps then the penny hits the bucket.

Even if anything she's ever done had some basis of being taken serious on a scientific level why do we not read from real scientist about it?!

The obvious pattern we found while going through the collection of data was that not one (!) person had a good time dealing with her. To give you some details (to muzzle the odball who actually gives her an ounce of credit), she has promised 6 different individuals to ''own the market'' but then refuses to sign basic contracts outlining the details to substantiate the offer. Or follow through with delivery!

These people lost a lot of time and money because of her irrational behavior. That is NOT just some deal that went wrong, NO, that is a PATTERN!

From three US nationals we heard that she threatens to sue if they tried to enforce the agreement! People, what does it take to stay away from that woman?

We are not picking on her, we were asked to look in to her and her products and we did NOT anticipate the huge load of garbage on that woman. Most of the material is freely available only peoples comments that kept pouring out to us.

People that ever had to deal with her are upset. Nothing we did triggered that. We don't care what she eats for breakfast, we don't care if she has fake blond hair. What we do care about is her insistent lies on the back of true science, and that has to stop.

She can sue us all day long, all she'll trigger is an avalange of TREU SCIENCE that will dismiss her arrogant snoot once and for all. She lies, we don't. That simple.

In fact we could counter claim that her statements about Arginine has and is still damaging those who sell a REAL product. We challenge anyone to step forward and actually show us one ounce of evidence that anything she has ever claimed about arginine came out of her own lab or is based on her OWN test guided buy her. 

She has no money and is a fraud, end of story. Right there is your indicator of her success. And if anyone likes to take us on, be our guest as we will have a field day with her and her legal team in court.

We are sick and tired to have to deal with opportunist like her, while we bring ethical products to market, consistent with consumer expectation, only to have a liar, and half wit give TRUE science a bad rep.

AGAIN: Show us that doctorate degree, show us the INDEPENDENT science and we will back off.

As a final note; since we placed the first post we have received 157 e-mails from people. And trust us, not one of them will help that woman in court.

And if she or the lone brave soul dares to counter our statements we will start posting these e-mails ALL over the ripp off report. We'll see how long she'll last then.

SO THINK before you spout more lies to support that kind of person!

We will not back down. The buck stops here.

She may not be as fake as the author wants you to believe

AUTHOR: chase.420 - (United States of America)

All I had to do was go to her website and see that she has claimed that her research was on the cover of The Wallstreet Journal.  So I went to the wallstreet journal's homepage and searched her name over the last two years.  Well low and behold!  She has had an article in it pertaining to her research and how it plays a vital role in the lives of diabetics.
I don't believe a word that the author of this rip-off report just for the simple fact that he hasn't done the simplest of research into Dr. Allen's character or her qualifications.  In my opinion,  she must meet the qualifications of a Chief of Biomedical Research at the Glycemic Research Institute in Washington D.C.  I don't think some bum off the street would have this position,  and I certainly wouldn't believe that a writer for The Wallstreet Journal would write about her in the manner that he did,  without any truth to his story. 
I'm also sure that her backround could be explained if someone simply looked for it.  I will report back with any new info I come across.  I am wanting to research her further because I am in question of her claims as well,  but i am in no hurry to claim that she has done nothing that she has claimed. 
Also,  nearly everybody has had bad business with another person or business in their life.  Just because the bad deals that she made with someone are claimed in the authors report doesn't make them true either.  The so called Agel and Synergy executives that had horrendous dealings with her are only shareing their side of the story.  For all we know they were trying to rip her off and now they are mad about it cause they got caught. 
I don't know.  I just think everyone needs to give her a fair chance and do simple internet research from reputable sites.
