Does Limu work?Limu is a multi-level marketing program that is centered around selling seaweed-based beverages and other products. They did the same thing prior to 2003 when they were abruptly shut down by the FDA for violations in the claims they made. So the big question is, has anything changed since then?

Health products are often used by network marketing companies because they are easy to trump up. All a person has to do is appear alive, energetic, and enthused, and then give the credit to the product they’re trying to sell. This sort of tactic is very effective, because it uses a living, breathing example of how great the product is, and people make the conclusion that it must be because it works so well.

The Claim
Limu is careful not to make a lot of direct claims about what the product can do, and uses statistics instead that are taken out of context. For example, they state that there are over 950 independent studies on Fucoidan, as listed by But what they don’t say is what the findings are in these reports. They basically searched that website and are stating how many search results came back.

The Hype
The hype comes from all of the people that are trying to sell this as their business. There’s an eclectic mix of people saying it’s a scam, and others saying it’s the best thing to ever happen to them. Who’s right? It all depends on what side of the fence you’re on. If you’ve invested money into it and are trying to make money with it, of course you’re going to say it’s a great company to align yourself with. And if you read the facts of the 2003 FDA crackdown you’ll probably conclude that it’s pretty much the same story a decade later.

The Cost
They say the suggested retail price is $50 a bottle, but suggest getting a bulk order and get it autoshipped to save the most money. We found a distributor selling a 4-pack for $135 which comes with a new member packet and qualifies you as a seller as well. You’re recommended to upgrade your order to be eligible for more bonuses and incentives. The biggest package on offer was for $1000 which includes an array of their products, marketing materials, and accessories, plus qualifies you for all of the compensation levels not included in the basic pack.

The Commitment
You’d have to commit to this and treat it as your number one priority if you want to be successful with it. But that is can be said for any business venture on the planet. Successful business people invest themselves fully in their endeavor, often putting their business before anything else. This is true from the smallest of small businesses all the way up to the biggest of the big.

What interesting is that this is the same business that was shut down in 2003, with the same CEO at the helm, and the same type of product being sold, even based out of the same city. So at least they didn’t move things offshore to escape any legal ramifications. It does lead one to wonder how long they’ll stay in business this time, or what loopholes they’re using in order to stay within legal limits.

Seaweed has long been known for its healthy benefits, but there’s no guarantee what sort of seaweed they’re using, how much goes into the product, and what sort of quality control is in place. Plus there must be a lot of extra additives because seaweed isn’t orange in color, so there is most likely dyes and other chemicals added to the drinks. At the end of the day you’d have to fully stand behind the product, enough to recommend it to others and feel good that you’re helping them live better.

Final Limu Review

The Limu company has been around for several years, and originally sold a product called Royal Tongan Limu. That business was shut down and had to pay millions of dollars in fines for making claims that the product could cure health problems. It seems this time they are avoiding making any direct claims as to what it can do, but it’s still the same people running it, and it’s still essentially the same type of product.

Our Recommendation
Multi-level marketing programs are not inherently bad, but they are one of the most abused ways to sell a product, and that bad reputation is strengthened when the product being sold needs to use misleading claims to do so. It’s easy to get swept up in the hype videos showing people that have supposedly made a lot of money, or won a car, or a trip to an exotic locale, but cutting through the razzle dazzle it’s clear to see that while those at the top might be having a lot of fun, those at the bottom won’t likely replicate that success.

What do you think? Does Limu work or not?

  1. I have been using Limu since June 2015 since then have NOT had ANY problems with my LIFE LONG ILLNESS ASTHMA, Chronic Bronchitis and Pneumonia. MY health has improved EXPONENTIALLY and I ABLSOLUTELY LOVE the fact this is an ALL IN ONE SUPPLEMENT. I DON’T take ANY other vitamin or mineral because I KNOW LIMU has me COVERED! 🙂 #DOINGITLIMU #LIMUFORLIFE

  2. My husband and I are promoters for LIMU and are in Tucson, Arizona. We were EXTREMELY skeptical as well, however this product is changing our lives. The health benefits alone are worth it, my husband suffered horribly from migraines and has not had one in the two months of using the product. Our doctor has also approved the use of this product and did research. The business part does take time and work, however you can be successful if you want to be. If you would like more info please feel free to check out

  3. Whoever wrote this is totally being a hater. My husband and I are promoters for LIMU. I have never promoted a product or worked at multi marketing. I’m a total skeptic too. I could not deny my neighbors results from using this product though. Her hands are basically deformed from rheumatoid arthritis. After using product for 6 wks she has no inflammation which means no pain! I was amazed and have known this women’s pain for 15 years. All I could think about was my mom, she has scoliosis bad and in pain a lot but hates taking pain meds.. I’m talking to everyone I know who has pain due to inflammations. I’m only talking to people who I think can promote the product successfully, meaning not everyone is a promoter. Yes we want people to promote,but it helps if you have the right personality and looking for opportunities. I’m a Christian with a large community that I love very much. The idea of helping people make money that i love is so cool. I’m a helper by nature!! To the hater who wrote this, I checked and the articles are legit and are very convincing based on the factual studies done. contact me if you’re interested in this product.

  4. Well, after reading this, I would say that your “facts” are wrong. I noted a lot of erroneous material in your article but won’t answer each claim because it’s not my place to do that. Limu is a wonderful product and is just a perfect food. There are no medical claims and it’s not touted as a cure for anything. Now there are over 1,300 independent scientific studies on on the benefits of Fucoidan, which is Limu’s main ingredient. Also, we don’t “sell” anything…we share what the products have done for us individually and show people how to get them and they pay exactly what we pay! It’s been a wonderful product for me and I will promote it because I believe everyone should be drinking it!

  5. Hello everyone, I am just like many folks in here I was very skeptical at first about the whole Limu deal. Suffering a battle with some serious acid re-flux attacks extending for over 5 months as well as unpleasant constipation problems, myself unwilling to take medication for it and create a dependency (and contribute to pharma to become richer than what they are); I decided to give Limu a try, just for the hell of it, just to see if this hype was legit. To my deepest surprise, after about a month of using it, my health has improve so dramatically that I am still in shock! Of course, eliminating certain foods is supposed to help as well, but when you do so and still have the problem, you can get irritated quickly, so I gave it a shot. I don’t know how is working for others and cannot make any “medical claims” about Limu helping me to get rid of these two nuisances. All I know is that I feel great, more energized, alert and grateful to GOD for finding this seaweed juice and this company!
    What? They are making money? As long as they are doing it ethically and legally, why the hell not? Is capitalism right? I’ve never being able to understand folks who get into Direct Marketing, MLM, or whatever you want to call it, expecting for things to happen miraculously. In a “normal” job you work 40 hours plus for X amount of money per hour, and chances are that will NEVER make more $$ than your mediocre supervisor… that’s how we were taught and that’s the way it is as a general rule. A company like Limu motivates you to go beyond that, and I have seen with my own eyes and ‘average joe” coming from bankruptcy (or almost homeless), getting a pretty descent income or a new car paid by the company…of course they had to work their tails off… but again you do the same working your tail off 40, 50 60 hours weekly for someone else to become richer!… enough with the whining!

    Peace to all…

    Constipation?…GONE, Acid re-flux? …GONE… thats all I know. Thats why today I am also a Limu (Latino) promoter, and I enjoy very much seeing others succeed and report health improvement as well…

  6. Limu promoters can make quite a profitable and stable business in a short period of time. The reason that MLM doesn’t work for some people is because they don’t do it correctly or they do not have a way to get momentum started. Limu has the easiest plan that I have seen. It’s about helping people with the product and the business. Getting to the level of making $10,000 a month in 6 months is very possible. Don’t let the negative people sway you the wrong way. There’s a lot of people that get established in the business and free themselves from their daily job. Find a promoter and they will help you thrive! Good Luck!

  7. I’ve been using limu for 60 days now and I can assure you it does work, I am now a promoter and doing very well, I had high blood pressure and because if drinking limu its lower and I feel great, I was pre diabetic but not anymore and I had neuropathy in my feet its gone. I have energy and I’m going to live a longer healthier life, if you would like to give it a try my email is The best part about promoting it is you don’t have to sell anything it works for you.

  8. They were not caught lying. They were caught making health claims which the product had not been approved by the FDA and therefore health claims are not to be made about anything without their stamp of approval. I do know that there are 1,000’s of people that after taking this drink they are off of medicines that they were taking for things such as gout, high blood pressure, ADHD, Diabetes and the list goes on.

  9. I’m also a Limu promoter. My focus though is product use. I have allergic asthma …. asthma induced by allergens in my environment. In 2014 I was at the Doctors office getting antibiotics, allergy meds and steroid shots every 3 months. I started taking Limu Original pretty close to the first of the year, January 2015. My last doctor visit was Feb 18th. I believe that due to my daily use of Limu Original has reduced my allergic reactions. It’s now mid June and I have not been to the doctor in months, i’m sure she thinks i’m going to another doctor!!! So if you have questions or concerns about the Limu Original products please feel free to contact me I will answer or direct you to the answers you require.
