When I first searched the Internet for information on Legacy for Life, I got an immediate and in your face letter that was written by Mr. John B. Foret, Director of the Division of Compliance and Enforcement, Office of Nutritional Products, Labeling and Dietary Supplements, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition of the Department of Health and Human Services to Ms. Adrian V. Matthews. Ms. Matthews (is) (was) an independent distributor for Legacy for Life.

The issue addressed in the letter to Ms. Matthews involved claims for the treatment and prevention of disease made at her website and involving Legacy for Life flagship product BioChoice®. She had stated at her website that “BioChoice® provides safe and natural protection against over 26 infectious bacteria that you are exposed to everyday, such as: E.Coli, Staphylococcus, Salmonella, Pneumonia, Streptococcus and Influenza. BioChoice® helps the body protect itself from the devastating effects of over 80 autoimmune diseases, such as: Lupus, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Psoriasis, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.”

I then queried the net again and found Ms. Mathews selling a Legacy for Life product called, the Legacy Balance for Life Plan, a weight loss/weight management plan that “provides unique and proprietary products to ensure your success. Each product has been specifically formulated and tested to make sure it is safe, effective, and unsurpassed in results among other weight management products on the market today.” These are pretty big claims and when I read the product marketing information, I didn’t see ingredients or how they worked mentioned.

Information of how to purchase and how to become a distributor for Legacy for Life links can be found at the site.

The company appears to be about 4 years old. I would still like more information on Legacy for Life. Please provide a review here for me or direct me to the leadership. If independent distributors are allowed to create websites and market the Legacy for Life products without supervision, I want to know. It is hard to imagine that any reputable MLM opportunity would have any distributor in trouble with the Dept. of Health and Human Services.

Until I learn more, I cannot recommend Legacy for Life. If health and wellness are your passion there are many other MLMs in this category that have more history, more complete information in their marketing materials, and more clarity on the web.
