Does Asea Really Work?


Does Asea really work?You’re either wondering if Asea works as an anti-aging device or a money making opportunity. Luckily there is one answer for both questions. So does Asea really have the secret to longevity and health, as well as the next great business opportunity? Let’s find out.

Overview
Asea is not the first company to come along and say that they battle free radicals. This Salt Lake City, Utah-based company is taking it to an entirely different level though. Many people have looked through all of their promotions and have asked aloud whether it’s just extremely expensive salt water, and a thinly disguised Ponzi scheme.

The Claim
There are several claims made by the makers and distributors of Asea. As a product they claim that their salt water holds the key to the fountain of youth. They offer a host of vague benefits, and promise that their product will help reverse any problem you’re having that is associated with aging. Just in time for the aging baby boomer population.

They call it “time in a bottle” which alludes to the fabled Fountain of Youth that Ponce de Leon searched for in vain for much of his life.

They are making a lot of fuss about something called “redox signaling” and have covered all of their bases by saying it’s a new invention, and that they’ve cornered the market on it.

This is a classic example of modern day snake oil salesmanship. Promise that a product has a cure for all that ails you and you’re sure to attract enough people that will want to learn more.

As a multi-level marketing opprotunity (MLM) they claim that they have a business opportunity that you can’t afford to pass up. You can sign up as an affiliate and you have a double-sided business instantly, both selling consumers on the benefits of drinking Asea, and recruiting new affiliates to join your downline (explained in detail below).

The Hype
The hype comes from all of the affiliates out there that are populating the Internet with a lot of junk information about how great Asea is. This is the blind leading the blind and the amount of misinformation makes it really hard to find accurate data on what Asea is. Any research you can do will be cluttered by pseudo science and rhetoric either from the main Asea company or their legion of salespeople.

The Cost
The cost to buy a bottle of Asea water is $30 if you buy it by the four pack for $120 and this is only if you select to have it automatically shipped to you monthly. This is an outrageous price for a supplement, but represents the cost if you buy from an independent distributor. To make it more attractive they sell the same product at Amazon for $180, in order to entice you to seek it elsewhere for less.

The cost to become a distributor of Asea ranges from being free, to costing $25 a month for their “Pro” plan. Unlike some programs it does not appear that they make you buy the product at wholesale and resell it at a retail price. You just serve as a lead capturing service for them, and handle the marketing and customer-finding activities for the main company, collecting your commission from the sales you make.

The Commitment
If you want to take Asea, there isn’t much commitment aside from drinking it down. This is all that’s required, and they make no mention of changing your diet or exercising more. They pride themselves on not being a diet pill or a weight loss supplement.

If you plan on making Asea your business, you will have to commit to moving enough units of the stuff to generate a part-time or full-time income. As a sales rep for the company it is your job to get people to either become a sales rep under you, or buy and drink Asea water from you so you can get paid.

The Downline
Like any multi-level marketing you will be in someone’s downline and you will have your own downline. Your real goal is to sign up as many people as you can under your downline. This means that theoretically any and all work they do will benefit you. Conversely, any and all work you do is benefiting your upline which can have any number of people in it, namely those that started the company and their closest friends.

The drawback to MLM and network marketing companies is that if you get in too late, and this is the case for the majority of people, the pool of potential customers shrinks and you’re left in a saturated marketplace with no chance of big earnings. And this applies even if you have a legitimate product to sell.

In the case of Asea, sooner or later people realize it’s a big sham, and you’re left with nothing while the originators cash big checks on your efforts.

Evaluation
There is nothing to make one believe that Asea is nothing more than fancy saltwater. The benefits of natural sea salt are real, but you can get this from any grocery store or health food store for far less expense and hassle than dealing with an Asea representative.

The business opportunity that Asea represents is nothing new. It has been used for several decades, with similar products like Noni Juice and Herbalife. They promise ordinary people the chance to have their own business, but in many instances the distributors are the major customers for the manufacturer. Why be content selling one bottle at a time when all you have to do is sell wholesale to distributors by selling them on the American dream.

Proof that any clown with a webcam can join and promote Asea:

Final Asea Review

There will always be phony baloney products like Asea that hit the market. They are thinly veiled pyramid schemes that operate right on the fine line of what’s illegal and what’s legal. There is usually a really smart person at the top, that knows how to create a somewhat believable product, get it manufactured, and come up with some slick promos to attract some believers.

It is your responsiblity to pay them no mind, and no money.

Our Recommendation
Don’t drink Asea and don’t try to sell it either. It’s just a quagmire of hopes and dreams and false promises. The only people that will tell you it’s a great product are either trying to get you to drink it, or get you to sell it with them. You can even find websites out there that say it’s a scam, but they are actually affiliate websites that contain links to get you to sign up as a distributor, or to buy the product as a consumer.

What do you think? Does Asea work or not?

I really do hope people take your advice and not get in to this!
This can never be marketed as a viable product with proper results. This is just a money making scheme for those at the top.
MLM’s don’t work unless you’re the one sat at the top, so please don’t get involved and put any money in to this!

My dad has been having this ASEA for about two weeks now, and he says it’s having great effect on his health. Could this be coincidental?

Probably. Of course, the placebo effect works wonders with colored water and a bit of flavoring these days.

It is more than likely he IS feeling better because of the anti-oxidants that Asea promotes. You can get the same anti-oxidants for a lot cheaper price by taking simple Vitamin C – 1,000 mg 2x/day.

Well Tim no you can’t get the same antioxidants from taking vitamin C. And John it’s not a placebo effect, children with autism who are thriving on this don’t know what a placebo effect is. I as well am not having a placebo effect. I was a long time sufferer of Lyme, 3 years of antibiotics and IV’s, I tried everything, nothing helped until ASEA came along. You bashers need to get your “heads outta your butts” because this is real life, real results and a real opportunity.

Great review. Thanks. You’re exactly right, all the hype out there and positive reviews are from people that are pushing this “new” gimick supplement. If it actually did anything it’d have FDA approval.
I’ll wait until I see REAL studies and REAL results over the long haul. Sadly people are always looking for a magic potent or pill, and if there IS one, I’m finding it first!

FDA only approves products for companies that wish to pay millions to get them approved….hummm usually big pharmaceutical companies. Smaller companies cannot afford this and this is why many good products are not FDA approved. I take ASEA and was a skeptic as well. I feel great and have had great results personally, plus the company guarantees the product with a full refund if you are not satisfied.No FDA approval just means that someone didn’t pay them millions to get it their little stamp….By the way, FDA also has approved a lot of dangerous drugs that kill, and cause major side effects to individuals. Sad to place so much trust in a government agency that has tons of lobbyists to make sure certain drugs and remedies never get FDA approved. I think you have to try something for yourself to see if it really works, who cares about their multi-level marketing. All I care is if the product works.

I think your article here is pretty good. Most of what is written seems accurate as far as I can tell. However, you don’t address their main (and puzzling for a scam) claim: that they have tested their product in a legitimate lab and those scientists were very surprised at the results of a double blind study. I know that one or two studies don’t prove much, but I was surprised when I looked it up and saw that Appalachian State’s Human Performance Lab is legitimate and lists ASEA tests as some of the recent studies. Note that these are studies of Asea’s effect on the body in an exercise context (and not of any sort of healing), but it was puzzling. I don’t take or sell Asea, but some of my friends do. The claims seem “too good to be true”, so they probably are, but you might review the study as part of your response if you want to be fair to the product.

I will say that for me the author of this site is correct.
I used Asea for 4 months with high expectations for it.
What it did was make me UNhealthy, not well.
I had several things appear within my physiology while I was using it and they all disappeared when I stopped the product.

You may have had a cleansing effect. Did you talk to anyone about your issues? When you take ASEA you have to drink a lot of water to push the old, damaged cells and toxins through your system. It also helps to back off and take less, just start on a lower dose and increase over about a week, or so. I also had some issues when I first started but I knew beforehand that this may happen and I worked with it. Now I have many benefits that I could report. If you did have a cleansing effect, the symptoms would have reversed once you stopped also but possibly if you continued taking it most likely have gotten better as your body was cleansed as well.

I am sorry it did not help you. Many people I know feel it is a blessing.

I once did a detox before I knew anything about detoxing. At the time, my bowels were not working regularly although my family medical doctor had previously once told me that once a week to eliminate was “my normal.” During the detox I developed an ulcerated throat and a huge red welt on my thigh. I couldn’t eat for 3 days. The only thing I had done differently was the detox so I stopped it. Months later as I was doing research on diet, disease, health etc I found out that when detoxing it’s imperative that you eliminate regularly, 1-3 times a day. It can be dangerous if toxins are being removed and not eliminating. The toxins have to go somewhere.

My husband, my mom, my cousin and I have been taking ASEA for months now. We have all seen drastic results. My mom who will 85 next month no longer needs her cane after using it and needing it for almost 4 years. She was very unstable and walked very slowly. She now walks normally. She has also lost some weight and her blood pressure which she takes medicine for has decreased drastically. I don’t ever remember it being 126/74 even on the medicine.

So for anyone to say ASEA is a scam or snake oil either hasn’t tried it or didn’t give it enough time. It’s real science. Because ASEA detoxes the body it’s important to drink lots of water to flush out the toxins and also understand that you may feel worse before better. This was also what my chiropractor had told me when I first went to him. He also told me that my condition didn’t happen overnight and niether would recovery.

ASEA never claims to cure any disease. What it does is it creates, protects and repairs cells. And it will go to the area of the body first that need it’s most so we may not see the results we’d like because it’s working where we can’t see. Before anyone forms an opinion and says No to ASEA, be sure you understand what you’re saying No to first.

For those who try ASEA for a week or a month and then give up, please read this: http://www.thedoctorstv.com/forums/766-February-21-2-12-Stop-the-Pain-You-Never-Thought-Would-Go-Away/topics/13144-ASEA

I’ve been using Asea. #1 they don’t tell you how carefull you need to be with the water. I took a swig straight from the bottle and was told that i probably ruined the whole bottle. So I got another bottle and have been drinking the dose in the am and evening. I feel ok I guess. I have noticed big puffy bags under my eyes (have been spraying face also) and this morning my fingers were puffy as well. I’ve been drinking a lot of water as well. I took my dose before dinner, then ate, then a couple hours later did my pilates and it felt like my muscles were jello. I had no extra ANYTHING!!! I will finish the bottle, then finish the bottle that I was told that I ruined because it was $30. Up until now I don’t feel a damn thing. I sleep the same, my workouts are worse and I feel pretty much the same except for the puffiness which sucks. I eat healthy and get plenty of sleep so I don’t know what is going on. I do know that there needs to be WAY more information out there as to how to properly use this product. I think that the water can become destabilised a lot easier than just putting your mouth to the bottle. More information and MAYBE I will try again. As for now. This product is a waste of my time and money.

I’ve used the product. The only thing its done for me is given me many sleepless nights. I’ve ever in my life had problems sleeping until I started this product. I called my rep and was told I’m probably not taking enough of the product(go figure) and don’t drink it before bedtime. I will certainly send the 4 empty bottles back for a refund. I guess it’s all about who you want to believe. The lady I bought this from was very convincing and even had a really good story about her fight with cancer and how it’s in remission nw. I don’t think she scammed me because I think she truly believes this stuff works. Me – not so much. It’s very expensive water. If it makes you feel great then good for you. I’m more apt to belive the placebo effect is the real reason for your health improving. After being diagnosed with cancer four months ago I started to look at everything for a way out – even snake oil products. The real studies of cancer patients have shown over the years the things that you can do to fight cancer, ie – vegan diets, plenty of exercise, organic foods and positive thinking. The best thing anyone can do for themselves is to learn about the products you are putting into your body and the effects they are having on you. When you start finding things out you will be amazed. And even more amazed at how good you’ll feel when you stop putting those unhealthy products into your body. And the best part is it won’t cost you anymore than your time to do the research on the internet. Do your research and form your own opinion as there is tons of info out there for free. Save your snake oil money and send it to your favorite cancer foundation, but do your homework there also. Send it to the one that has the biggest research budget and the smallest administrative percentage charge. Just my thoughts…………

I have been on ASEA for 2 years. I am not selling it nor building an organization. My husband, older son and I both take it daily. I have researched it, been to meetings and have no doubt that we have had great results. I have even sprayed it on areas where I had skin tags and they were gone in a couple of weeks. Don’t listen to the naysayers; do your own research. Our energy levels are higher, we sleep well, we have had no negative side effects. There is no more salt than our bodies naturally produce. As far as contaminating the bottle, read the directions. Don’t drink it from the bottle, use a glass, pour a couple of ounces, don’t mix it with anything else. I try to take on an empty stomach twice daily. It is difficult to explain all that it does…doe your research. I know that when I had my annual eye exam my vision improved so much that the doctor told me that I no longer need my contacts. I am a professional speaker, 71 years young, going 90 miles and hour working and living my life. I am not naive nor easily duped….I consider ASEA an important part of my daily health care routine.

To be honest I was looking for an answer to a simple question of “Does ASEA Really Work?”
As an engineer I have a logical approach to find answers. That’s why I began to look for the reasons that cause aging. Where I find out that our body is planned to be able to function properly for more than a century. So what stops it and force it to illness and death?
The answer was in our cells. As we get older they become less effective. Not because they want to, but because we force them by what we eat and the air we breath. And etc. But if I in my age want to find a solution to correct this, what can I do?
Eating more vitamins and minerals? Doing sports? Live in a better environment? Change my life style?
All can help, but what about the recent situation of my body cells? In simple language I gathered a lot of toxin all these years in my cells. Which the stress of modern life and air pollution help them to get worst.
When I was looking for the answer I come across one word “ASEA”. With a one line description:
“Scientists around the world are saying this is the biggest Health Science discovery in the last decade, and probably worthy of a Nobel Prize.”
Did I hear correctly? Biggest health science discovery? Here I needed the help of a friend who is a bio-chemist scientist. Asking her I find out yes! The human old dream came true. ASEA drink is the secret of how to stop aging and how to boost body energy to its ultimate level with quite a natural way. To drink water!
I began my research where I find out astonishing effects about ASEA water. But is it a simple water? A juice? A vitamin? An antioxidant element?
Simply not. But it is more than all these. ASEA advancing life is a GIFT TO YOUR BODY CELLS.
But what is the most important is MY OWN EXPERIENCE. I am using it almost a year now and all my pains I had in my mnees vanished, I feel fully energized and fresh.
So decide for yourself, but ASEA WORKS FOR ME like nothing before…this is my story.

It like those varies mall scams that get you to pay for salt treatment that’ll keep your skin when in reality it’s just nothing more than typical bath salt. Not only are they trying to get your to buy their low quality product but as mentioned in the review, you can get something similar for way cheaper. Not something one should consider unless their fine with having their money go down the drain.

I have been looking for real, independent research information on this product. Your article makes a lot of claims about how this is a scam. However, you list no references or any indication that you have any real information that this is bogus; it seems to be nothing more than mere opinion. Please include links to actual studies that prove your hypothesis.

I know a man who overcame leukemia on this product. His doctors told him he was probably going to die and after three weeks he could see a change once the cancer was completely gone the doctors gave no respect to the fact that ASEA had changed his life. The FDA is a joke and so are most doctors- trying to treat cancer by killing all of your cells instead of building your cells up to restore your body…. Anyone who thinks the FDA is right should realize all the junk food they approve, and if you do think that the FDA “knows best” you should really go online and research the things they approve started with high fructose corn syrup, or just watch tv and listen to the many side affects with taking any kind of medication. Stop being brain washed by the government.

What rang alarm bells for me when considering the purported merits of drinking asea is that the people at the top of this business are mormons. If they are so gullible to believe in an obvious charlatan like joseph smith and his phoney writings, then they can believe and expect everybody else to believe literally anything, including the whacky, pseudo-scientific miraculous powers of their redox signalling salt water potion.

I’m a bit torn on this. A friend gave me a free bottle to try on my husband’s leg as he heals from massive blood clots. I haven’t started using it yet on him. I have used it on strange patch of skin on my nect that has bugged me for several months now and beginning to really annoy me with itching and scabbing. I spray it on twice a day for about a week and it’s nearly gone now. Just a small raised place in my skin but no scaling or scabbing now. Makes me wonder. I’ve been using it on my dog’s neck where she has a horrible ugle growth that keeps oozing, the result of sabceaus gland cyst gone wrong. So far I’m not seeing the possitive results on that, but I’ve only been using for a week on her. If it heals that ugly thing, then I’ll be a believer!

As an avid ASEA user (product saved my life), I’ve come to learn that the majority of people on this planet are, well, for lack of a better word, ignorant! We’ve learned all our lives that doctors, government and the FDA are our soul guardians to our health, wrong! Everyone knows, excuse me, those of us with intelligence know the FDA is a big farce, with lobbyists that push harmful pharmaceuticals, and, Doctors don’t study healing they study sickness. Here are 2 doctors that truly understand
the power of Redox Signaling, Dr Narain Naidu, and Dr. Jagat Narula. Both spoke at a recent ASEA convention, doctors with reputations like this do not align themselves with a product that has no validity. If people really care about there health, they will do there due diligence and take the time to speak with any of a number of Doctors who have committed themselves to this breakthrough product, read the infinite amount of information available and take the time to educate yourself on the proper way to take ASEA. Realize that you will go thru a detox period, that may be awful, but thats a good thing! Think of all the crap you’ve been exposed to, eaten or taken. If more people took ASEA our government wouldn’t be so burdened taking care of all those people who feel entitled to have the government take care of them because they’ve never taken care of themselves. I share this with friends, family and people I’ve come to appreciate and respect, I would never introduce something to anyone if I didn’t feel it was something very special, and truly feel it would be irresponsible of me not to share this with others. My wife, and I have been taking this product for about 22 months, we both feel younger and have a sense of wellness, especially myself as my Lyme symptoms are not present. My Mom, who had breast cancer and lung cancer has been taking ASEA for 19 months, and has come off her blood pressure medicine and her inhaler, saving her $300 per month, her recent scan showed her lung nodes to be shrinking. Her Doctor called me to learn more about ASEA and says her oxygen levels in her blood are the highest he’s ever seen in her, she’s 78. I’ve come to realize this is transformational technology that is changing the way we look at healthcare, and affording many people a chance at realizing an extra income while making a difference in someones life. Quit your whining get your heads out of your ass and realize that great things do happen, and if your to blind to see it, to bad for you!
Testimonial Videos-these were shot over a year ago, I had been on the product for about 6 months.

This site was probably set up by a drug company. They may have created some of the negative comments. After this product was developed a drug company in New York offered the developers several hundred million dollars not to sell it. They refused, because they knew they had a product, that in time would change the world. I had a cancer tumor behind my eye seven years ago. Radiation killed the cancer. Five days after the treatment my retna detached. Ever since then I had a bad problem with dry eyes. I had to use eye drops several time a day to reduce the eye pain. I have been on ASEA for 3 months. I used it as eye drops and drank it. It cured my dry eye problem. When you are 10 to 12 years old you start losing the molecules in your cells. That is why bad things start happening as you get older. What ASEA does is cause the body to replace the molecules. ASEA does not cure anything. It returns the body to good health. The body can then remove the problems and sicknesses we get as we grow older. You wait 15 minutes after eating or drinking to take it. Wait another 15 minutes before eating or drinking. Hold each swallow in your mouth for 1 or 2 minutes. Divide your body weight in half. That is how many oz of water you must drink to wash out and detox your body each day. Never drink out of the bottle. Take 2 oz in the morning and 2 oz in the afternoon. YOU WILL BE BLESSED.
