Visalus, lose weight and earn money!
Today’s spotlight is on the VISALUS slimming program.
Ever heard of Visalus? You’ve probably heard of it, as this weight-loss program is gaining momentum in France and Europe. Also known as Body by Vi Challenge, it’s a balanced, sustainable weight-loss transformation program. It is said to be suitable for all weight-loss objectives, and could also, if we are to believe the information provided by its manufacturer, represent an income-generating opportunity!
Let’s find out all there is to know about this meal replacement program, and what it has to offer.
Visalus presentation and promises
According to official information, Visalus is a simple program that can be easily integrated into any lifestyle. It is a 90-day program, renewable until desired results are achieved, offering the following promises:
- Healthy weight loss;
- A new-found fitness level;
- The opportunity to participate in a referral program to obtain products free of charge;
- An opportunity to win thousands of euros in various prizes.
Visalus is not just a diet, but also an opportunity to earn income by becoming an independent distributor of the product. We’ll come back to these aspects later, but first let’s take a look at what Visalus promises in terms of weight loss:
- Ingredients and formulation based on approved scientific data;
- Optimum nutrition to help build muscle mass;
- Stimulation of metabolism;
- Appeasement of hunger.
The flagship product of the Visalus program is Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake Mix, a milk shake powder to be used in place of 2 meals a day (including breakfast), plus a snack and a balanced meal, for a healthy day and maximum results.
Visalus, the Manufacturer
Little detailed information is available on the manufacturer of Visalus. What we do know is that it is a company founded in 2005 in Nevada, USA, by 4 founders who put forward a fundamental commitment:
“ To have a positive impact on life, health and prosperity. “.
Visalus is a program that has enjoyed enormous success in the United States, then in Canada, and is now gaining momentum in Europe, particularly in France.
The Visalus business opportunity
In addition to losing your extra kilos, Visalus offers you the opportunity to become an independent distributor of the products you use. Visalus offers a remuneration plan in the form of commissions on sales, which can be as high as 25%. You can be part of a team, or create your own, for even more income opportunities.
Visalus provides its independent distributors with all the tools they need to succeed: marketing tools, a virtual office, training, etc.
The icing on the cake is that the best distributors can win prizes such as luxury cars or trips.
Visalus doesn’t give any precise information on the composition of its shake, which is really regrettable coming from a company that claims to be so serious.
What Visalus does tell us is that its shake is a “fusion of 23 vitamins and minerals that the body needs for good health. It’s also a blend of protein, digestive enzymes and premium fiber.”
Thanks to our research, we were able to deepen our knowledge of the composition of the Visalus shake.
1. Tri-Sorb proteins:
Highly assimilable by the body;
2. Certified non-GMO soy:
Processed to remove isoflavones, which can have a negative impact on estrogen levels.
Soy was chosen because it is a complete protein, easy to digest, and may help reduce cholesterol levels.
3. Whey Concentrate or Whey Hydrolysate:
Helps build muscle mass.
This protein has been recognized by the FDA as a “fat loss accelerator”.
Added to protein is a patented, clinically tested acid that helps the body absorb protein.
Muscle-builders are also fond of this ingredient.
Protein, apparently omnipresent in the Visalus shake, will have the role of increasing muscle mass. As a result, the basal metabolic rate is increased, as muscle mass consumes more calories than fat mass.
Scientific studies on Visalus
The official Visalus website states:
“a group of physicians, wellness, formulation and production experts, all with high reputations and decades of experience and research, take part in the Vi product formulation process. These scientists review published clinical and scientific studies, and even conduct their own studies in an effort to find supplements that may have health-supporting properties.”
Unfortunately, no studies are available or referenced to which consumers can refer to verify Visalus’ claims for themselves.
What is known is that studies on soy have shown that this ingredient has the ability to build muscle mass just as effectively, if not more effectively, than whey-based proteins.

Visalus side effects and contraindications
The information provided by the manufacturer does not mention any side effects or contraindications.
However, pregnant or breast-feeding women, as well as people undergoing medical treatment, are advised to consult their doctor before starting a Visalus slimming program.
Testimonials from Visalus users
According to many nutritionists, the Visalus program gives good weight-loss results, and represents a balanced and safe meal replacement.
However, several nutrition professionals warn that this type of meal replacement program carries a high risk of weight regain, if a real approach to diet rebalancing and lifestyle change is not implemented at the same time as the slimming cure.
As far as users are concerned, consumer opinions are in the same vein, confirming the product’s effectiveness.
It’s worth noting that the possibility of earning money and the opportunity to earn income are highly emphasized in comments about Visalus products.
