Beeyoutiful Formulas FAQs
« on: May 06, 2006, 08:11:10 AM »
This question is purely out of curiosity, but who formulates all the beeyoutiful.com products?  What is the criteria for determining whether you carry a product or not?  (hope it's okay to ask this)  Thanks.

Sure, it's okay!

The products come from different sources.

Some we formulate by researching and talking to professionals/herbalists/researchers, etc...until we come up with a great forumula. Then we get a manufacturer to make it for us. We have a rose hip vitamin C with Propolis that is being "created" for us right now. I believe (from experience) that it will be the most effective vit C product on the market. Other products are still in the research stage.

Other products we "find" through recommendations from our customers, and after researching and testing the product, meeting the developers, and talking business for a while, we discuss relabeling, possibly reworking or perfecting the existing product with higher quality ingredients/different ingredients, etc... Or if it is perfect, we just rename and relabel.

Supermom was a product previously created by another company. I ran out of prenatals, and grabbed an old ugly bottle sitting on the back of our shelf and WOW. Supermom. The original name was so unmemorable, I still have to ask Gabe what it was called... I recommended it all the time to friends, and they couldn't remember the name, or find it to buy. So in frustration I said one day "we should just call those vitamins "Supermom" and sell them ourselves."  ;D

We do not work with MLM (multi-level-marketing) companies. But we DO work with small, home-based, or "grassroots" type companies. We look for products that we feel are superior in quality, but poorly marketed, or poorly named, and therefore largely undiscovered. And of course, we try everything to see if it is really "the best."

Gabe is quite extrordinary at researching and "spying" quality stuff. He is really great at knowing whether something is legit and quality, or just glitter and marketing. And it's amazing how much glitter and marketing is out there.

Our final "requirement" is that, if at all possible, we want the customer to be able to use or make the "real thing." Like making yogurt or kefir, instead of buying Tummy Tune-Up, or eating straight Spirulina while changing your diet to meet your vit requirements, eating fresh garlic instead of taking the capsule, and harvesting your own rosehips and bee pollen.

We want to educate our customers to the point where eventually, they won't need us anymore, so if society breaks (somehow, someday) our customer base will be able to care for their families successfully, and naturally without supplements, doctors, or Beeyoutiful.com. WellTellMe.com is part of that "education." And we are learning as well - thanks to you.

Finally,
If you make/create something that you feel is superior (even if all you have is a recipe) - whether it be a tincture, a moisturizer, a balm... Send us some to try, and tell us why you think it is the best.

And that's the whole story.  :)

Okay, at the risk of sounding like a stalker..... ;)
  I was raving about Supermom to a friend who follows the Pearl publications and she said "I wonder if they just relabeled the 'NOW' vitamins?  I think I remember reading a similar testimony by Rebekah a while back about those."  Not that it's the point of this thread, but I thought it might ring a bell about the name.        ~L

:-\ Corporate secrets exposed...  ;) I guess we could have expected it since we run our own forum!  In any case we do like NOW and they have worked with us to make two custom products as well, and there are several other companies that we are working with to private label existing or customized products... You might as well know now since they are GREAT companies and have wonderful products in our opinion.

OrganixSouth.com has a bunch of great Neem products... paraben and detergent free shampoo, a great toothpaste, and a hypercritical neem oil that we think could be a good birth control solution... although there have been no studies outside of India that we know of.

HoneyGardens.com which has some great "bee" products.

Victorian Lavender which does not have a website, but whose "Leave in Hair Conditioner" we should have in the next month, and whose healing salve should be available sometime this fall...

Possibly Energytan.com which even if we don't private label their products... are really great, inventive products.

...and there are our own inventions that are in the works as well. An all natural, safe for babies to adults, bug lotion; and the kids vitamin which... is looking pretty yummy...

So. That is all I am going to say on the subject. After all, I don't think that any other vitamin company on earth would have said as much, and, well, this forum is not really intended for the intensive dissection of Beeyoutiful products!

By the way, the basic business model of Beeyoutiful.com was to take products that are just not marketed in a way that will ever get the appropriate customer response, to re-present them in a way that allows the clearest understanding of the use of the product, and to educate the customer so that even if the products were not available, they could still get the same results.

Finally, a few people (not here, I think) have mentioned that Beeyoutiful products are expensive... I know that is probably just ignorance or maybe they have never purchased vitamins before, but another Beeyoutiful "business principle" is that price point is critical. Basically, if the intention is to teach customers how to use alternatives to Beeyoutiful products, then Beeyoutiful needs to make it worth their while in the short run to keep buying Beeyoutiful stuff if only for convenience sake! Their prices are universally are as low as can be found in the industry! Compare a bottle of ThreeLAC to a bottle of Tummy Tuneup, and you will see what I mean. Maybe there is a difference in effect, I have yet to run a test or hear of a testimony either way... but I highly suspect that Tummy Tuneup is equally effective... in any case, its way cheaper!

Oooh, sorry if I over-stepped boundaries by initiating this thread.   :(  But, Gabe you are right....you've shared way more than I could imagine any other company doing and it is much appreciated.  I have not yet purchased any Beeyoutiful products, but I am becoming increasingly impressed both by testimonies I read of the products themselves and the very ethical, openly honest business practices Beeyoutiful.com has demonstrated.  I predict I will soon be one of your raving customers.  So, thank you.   This forum is a tremendous ministry and thank you for educating people about the resources that are available.

Busted.

Quote from: healthybratt
There are several "natural living" stores in the city but everything they sell is so overpriced, I can barely afford to purchase the few starter herbs I've got, much less "all natural", "organic" foods and all the yeast killers and vitamin supplements I might need to get my health back.  I managed to keep a couple of extra dollars back for some powdered spirulina.  I paid $10 but it only lasted me 2 weeks and it didn't do a thing for me.  So, now I have to find another route and something else that will cost more money that might not work.  My hubby (and I) are getting pretty tired of spending money on "snake oil" for "imaginary" health problems.  I would love to try the "beeyoutiful" products, but again, they are not cheap.  For the price I would pay for a bottle of SuperMom, I could buy my family about 12-15 meals or 5 pairs of pants, a new pair of glasses for hubby or even pay the water bill for 4 months. :-[

I have since tried the SuperMom and aside from the overabundance of Iron, I'm completely amazed at the results of the product.  ;D  My biggest concern is not necessarily the added budget expense as I can generally adjust my budget to accomodate necessities, but, when shopping for a new product there is so much sensationalism out there and it's really hard to know what's going to work and what isn't.  So my initial investment is always the scary part.  I spend my extra budget this month and if the product flops, I have to wait another month or whatever to try something else that might also flop. 

So take it from the cynic, Supermom, Yeast Assassin, and Tummy-Tuneup are good products and well worth the purchase price.  Now if I could just convince my friends... ::)

I couldn't agree more! After having my wisdom teeth pulled last fall I had a ton of complications and had to take alot of medications and antibiotics. This resulted in terrible digestion problems :'(. I tried taking every acidophilus and probiotic pill I could find. They all helped a little but it wasn't unlit I took Tummy Tune-up that I really felt better.

I have also found SuperMom to Be about a third of the price of other good quality vitamins. Thanks for the great products!!

 :) I've read great reviews of all the Beeyoutiful products on WTM and everywhere I look it says that Beeyoutiful products are superior and at excellent prices. I totally believe this knowing their motivaton behind the buisness. And I would love to support their buisness (and family). However, my question is as follows...I am about to start a yeast cleanse on me and my ds (breastfed, 4 months old) and can't quite figure something out. Sorry if I've overlooked the answer. If the Acidophilis Blast inhibits the reproduction of yeast and the Tummy TuneUp helps recolonize our intestines and the Enzyme digestive helps with yeast cell wall digestion what is the garlic's and Colostrum Transfer Factors purpose in the Pregnancy Anti Yeast package? To boost the immune system or is there more to it? And does Beeyoutiful have some sort of fiber recommendation or product they sell along with these Anti Yeast products. I've read you should be taking fiber while cleansing. Thanks :) I'm trying to compare Beeyoutiful to other supplements for Anti Yeast and either they have you buying more things than you need or I've missed ingredients and purposes of Beeyoutiful products.

Great question!   

The Colostrum Transfer Factor has naturally occurring components which stimulate the growth and balance of friendly flora in the body.  One component in particular -- lactoferrin -- has been found in several studies to  inhibit a wide range of bacteria, certain yeasts (Candida Albicans, in particular), and certain intestinal parasites.  So the Colostrum Transfer Factor is not only helping to build up the good flora in your GI, but is also helping to get rid of the bad bacteria and yeast.  And on top of that, it is working to boost your immune system!

Garlic is known to have wonderful antifungal properties!!!

Of Course! I knew that but wasn't thinking clearly (obviously!) We've been using garlic for eczema and the coconut oil too. THANK-YOU for the explanation. I was sure there was one.

O.kay with the last Beeyoutiful magazine coming out and them   announcing what looks like their official "cut" from not just Gabe and Becka but Welltellme.com I've done a little more research into this and now do not feel as bad about posting my research on this matter. You guys can check my links and what I've posted but my conclusion is that a large percentage of Beeyoutiful supplements look like they are repackaged NOW products ... It looks like Beeyoutiful repackages them with catchy names and pretty pictures, but if you're like me plain ol boring names w/ plain ol boring pictures at about half the price is fine with me. It looks like Beeyoutiful sells them for regular NOW asking price, but www.luckyvitamins.com just has such great prices!!! And free shipping after $100. Now some folks have said spending the $120 for free shipping is easy to do at Beeyoutiful.com ... it is a little harder at Lucky's since their prices are practically cut in half...but stock up, buy for friends, split an order with a lady at church or whatever!! I am in NO WAY attached to anyone in ANY of these companies, not Beeyoutiful, not Gabe and Becka and not Welltellme.com ... I'm just simply a bargain hunter and always feel bad when I see people post in this forum how their saving up for something in the Beeyoutiful catalog and I get most the stuff for like yeah, half the price...so here is my several hours of research...hope its helpful for somebody!

Are you saying that these are equivalent to Beeyoutiful products, same ingredients, amounts and such?  Money is tight and it would be great to get them for less if they are the same thing!!

I'd like to understand something.  Why did Beeyoutiful break from the Anast family and WTM?  Was there some strife of some sort?

I always thought there was a good relationship.

I also am wondering if it's true that Beeyoutiful is truly selling NOW products with a different label.

How can I know what's true?

I've loved getting my products from Beeyoutiful and supporting a Christian, family-run company.

What to do?

I also am wondering if it's true that Beeyoutiful is truly selling NOW products with a different label.

How can I know what's true?

They said so on this forum a long while back.

Ok, I did a search and found it.  Thanks, WR.

I still have an uncomfortable feeling about the split between Beeyoutiful and WTM.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about it.  Seasons come and seasons go.  There is a time to "walk with" and a time to "part ways."  The people concerned know the why's and how's; we need not concern ourselves.  Let us just continue in our own searches for ways to improve the health of our families!  :D

I'd like to understand something.  Why did Beeyoutiful break from the Anast family and WTM?  Was there some strife of some sort?

I always thought there was a good relationship.

I also am wondering if it's true that Beeyoutiful is truly selling NOW products with a different label.

How can I know what's true?

I've loved getting my products from Beeyoutiful and supporting a Christian, family-run company.

What to do?

well if you have the money to support Beeyoutiful and feel comfortable doing so...do it!! if you don't than buy the cheaper product. I post for those of us w/ small income and lots of family or who just feel like they would like the money to go elsewhere (support WTM maybe w/ the money you would save!! :) or missionaries or whatever!!! or buy extra supplements for friends/family who come asking for help - I love having tons of extra on hand to pass out when folks call!)

I hope this does not turn into a he said she said thing where ppl start taking sides and suddenly not liking one side because of such and such and because they are loyal to so and so.

Beeyoutiful has started their own health forum so IMO if we want to know about it  then  it might be best to ask them  this way it might help chill out on any missunderstandings and accidental rumors which can very easily happen.

Here is their link for their forum. I happen to love WTM and I can also see where in time when beeyoutifuls forum gets a going stronger I can also grow to love them as well. I already like their forum even know in its infancy. I also like other forums as well. IMO we can gain knowledge from a variety of sources.   :) ;) :)

What to do?

Plenty of companies repackage products and sell them.  It is not unethical, if that is what you are concerned about (which maybe you are not, but just in case...).  I don't think it is anyway.  You can google and find so many companies that specialize in repackaging vitamins and other things.  It's not a big secret.  Happens all the time.  Kind of like name brand and generic items at the grocery store.  Many times, same factory, same assembly line, same product, only different labelling.  While I have known for a long time about the Now products being repackaged for Beeyoutiful, I think Beeyoutiful prices are still very good and competitive and I believe the company has great integrity and good information (which is hard to find).  Choose where you want to buy, but I don't think their integrity should be questioned or implied based on this, which it seems to be in some posts here.  They seem like super nice people to me who are just trying to make a family business work, which I applaude and am happy for them in their success.  I'm gonna check out their health forum.   :)

I know that I mentioned the Now vitamins a while back and Gabe was very open about the fact that they had started out with the Now formula because it had been effective in Beka's life and they wanted to pass on this great product they had found.  (It was a long time ago, but that is how I recall it.)  I have no idea what has happened since then, but I believe that the best way to get to the bottom of it is to call and talk to someone at Beeyoutiful.  They are very pleasant and forthright and have nothing to hide - which is more that I can say for most companies.  ~L
