What is ASEA Global?
I have reviewed many multi-level marketing companies on this site but never thought I would be reviewing one that sells a rather bizarre product.
Yap, you had that right. This is no ordinary water though. ASEA’s claim to fame is Redox signaling. Redox means “reduction and oxidation” which apparently can be fixed with salt.
On their website, they explain: Redox signaling is cellular communication within a living organism and is an essential function of normal physiology. In fact, a wide range of biochemical and physiological processes critically depend on redox signaling in and among our cells.
Don’t stress out if you don’t grasp it. I am having trouble wrapping my head around it myself.
Sodium Chloride is the key ingredient used to make Redox Signaling Molecules.
Sodium Chloride is just another name for salt, so in a nutshell what ASEA sells is nothing but salt infused water. We will delve deeper into that as we go along.
Founded by businessman Verdis Norton in 2009, ASEA sells and distributes health and wellness products through independent sales representatives using the network marketing model.
They currently have over 30,000 associates globally and operate in ten different countries across the world.
ASEA is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. They are accredited and have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
ASEA productsASEA has products in 4 categories with ASEA Redox Supplement being their flagship product.
1. ASEA Redox Supplement
This is what they call their miracle water, or water loaded with salt and other minerals for added nutritional benefits.
Its benefits include:

One case of the ASEA Redox Supplement case 4 pieces of 32 fl oz (947ml) bottles of ASEA Redox, so you’re paying around $30 per bottle!

How does ASEA work?
To get your business up and rolling, you will need is to purchase one of 4 product packs.
- ASEA Advancing Life – 1 Case of Asea Redox for $120
- Basic Plus – 2 Cases of Asea Redox for $240
- Builder – 4 Cases of Asea Redox for $370
- Express Builder – 8 Asea Redox of Asea for $770
The higher up the package you purchase the more you can expect to make in commissions.
Basically, there are two main ways one can generate an income with ASEA.
- Earn commissions through retail product sales.
- Earn commissions when those who join under you and recruit other new members.
That is just how most MLMs work. Number 2 is where the real money lies. If you can build a large team below you, you can expect to start making some good income.
You will also need to maintain 100PV which is just one case of their ASEA Redox to remain active in the business.
Distributors can expect to earn up to 25% in retail profits. ASEA uses the binary compensation plan model where you have two teams each building their own teams.
To get a better understanding of the compensation plan, check out the video below.

Can you make money with ASEA?
I believe if you have the right skill set and most importantly, mindset, you can make money.
There are people who claim that the company has great products that have helped in improving their health. These people are bound to keep buying and as long as they are active you will make money.
That being said, the harsh reality when it comes to making money with network marketing is that it’s not as easy as a lot of people are lead to believe. People don’t like being sold stuff and most people suck at making sales.
ASEA has a training program that looks solid and is aimed at helping members grow their businesses.
There are also a few positive reviews about the product so I guess it works for some. And of course, like I mentioned one can make money with this opportunity.
Are You Looking For a Way to Earn Passive Income
Without Having to Recruit?
They are many.
Selling a bottle of fancy salty water for $30 is plain ridiculous. Your body gets salt from the food you eat so ingesting more salt in your water is going too far.
As a matter of fact, Redox supplement has 123 milligrams of sodium per bottle which is 7% more than what is safety recommended by the FDA.
I don’t want to wade into whether the product works or not since I haven’t personally used it.
Reviews online are pretty mixed. There are those who swear the products work. Most are distributors and so why would they say otherwise.
However, the majority are just not buying into it.
From what I have observed advocates of ASEA are floating a lot of fancy scientific names to defend the products. I doubt whether even they themselves understand what the heck they are saying.
It could be just a bottle of seawater with nice packaging or it could be just a Placebo. Placebos work 20% of the time.
I will let you be the judge of that. Personally I would rather take advice from the med student.
Is ASEO Global a scam?
As a business, I wouldn’t call them a scam.
A lot of people are skeptical about joining MLMs due to the recruiting nature of the business. As long as a company has a product or service behind it, you cannot brand it a scam.
Scams, particularly pyramid schemes, tend to take money out of your pocket using deceptive means. In most cases, they sell you an endless story of investing your money in nothing to grow your money. We all know that money does not grow on trees.
The part that gives me goosebumps is the products. There is hardly any resource out there that can prove that drinking ASEA Redox Supplement will sort out your health issues.
There are way too many red flags with the products that I would be careful of investing my money with ASEA Global.
To most, it’s not a very viable option to grow a business.
I was a former network marketer and aside from being a real pain to everyone I approached to join my business I spent a lot of money and never got to recruit even one person.
I might have approached over 300 people. Some of them were clearly not happy about it.
Recruiting is very intrusive. Most people will feel like you are taking advantage of the relationship you have with them
I had to face the facts. Was I really building a business or was I just helping someone else make their money?
Truth be told you are not really running a business. The people running the business are the people whose products or services you are selling. They dictate what you sell, price, and what you make for it. If you owned the business, you would have a say in that.
All that talk about the business being easy and how anyone can do it is nothing but hot air.
The fact is, most people suck at selling.
According to this article on Wikipedia, over 99% of people who join MLM companies lose money. That is a big number.
If you are just joining ASEA Global or thinking of joining ask yourself whether you really stand a chance at success. I hate to burst your bubble but the odds are heavily against you.
Are there better alternatives to ASEA Global?Certainly yes.
I would say one of the most effective and long term ways to make money way you can make money selling products or services is through your own website.
You don’t even need to own the products to earn commissions with a website.
Neither do you need to recruit people to your business. People need to come to you. how about you check out how I make money online without having to recruit.
No need to run around chasing after people to join your opportunity. There are billions of people connected on the internet today. You just need to put yourself in front of that audience.
This review is by no means meant to discourage you from joining or staying on with ASEA Global. If you feel you have what it takes then, by all means, go for it. If you don’t, just remember to keep your options open.
