Organo Gold, found at OrganoGold.com, is a new multi-level marketing business opportunity in the health and wellness industry. They specialize in providing supplements and beverages based on the Ganoderma mushroom, a mushroom that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years.

Though they sell different health supplements, in both capsule and powder form, as well as skin care products, their real claim to fame is the Organo Gold Coffee. This coffee is said to be all organic, and infused with organic Ganoderma sourced from one of the world’s largest providers of organic Ganoderma.

To begin as an Organo Gold Distributor, you must first purchase a Promotional Builder Pack at one of three different levels. The Bronze Pack will cost $199, the Silver Pack $499, and the Gold Pack $1299. As with most MLMs, you are required to purchase your products wholesale upfront, and then sell them to customers you seek out at the marked up retail price.

The retail price of Organo Gold products must be at least 50% marked up over the cost of wholesale items, however, if you choose to sell the items at a steeper price mark up, you may do that as well.

Organo Gold’s Health Claims

OrganoGold.com makes many claims on their website about their products, especially testifying to their “organic” nature. Unfortunately, no Organo Gold products have ever been FDA approved, and the term “organic” in the United States only applies to products which have been verified organic based on a set of standards.

Does this mean that Organo Gold products are definitely not organic? No. However, it is important to point out that their organic status has never been verified by anyone – currently it’s just a claim they make.

In addition, many of their distributors sell Organo Gold products from websites, and many of them make significant health related claims about the powers of Ganoderma and Organo Gold. I have read distributor sites that claim Ganoderma has “been proven to fight certain forms of cancer.”

For the record, Ganoderma has never been “proven” to do anything health related. Many universities in the US are currently running studies on this mushroom and the benefits it may have, but there haven’t been any studies done by the medical community in the US or China that have proven Ganoderma’s health benefits.

In fact, a study by the University of Pittsburgh showed that prolonged use of Ganoderma could actually cause health complications, like blood thinning (which is especially dangerous in combination with certain medications, including basic aspirin) and liver problems, as well as short term problems like nose bleeds, dizziness, and upset stomach.

It is important to be careful and aware of what effects are occurring when you are trying any new supplements, especially those that have not been vetted by the FDA.

The Bottom Line on Organo Gold

Organo Gold seems like a basic MLM company. There aren’t many reports of past employees being burned or mistreated, and there aren’t many reports of customers having issues with their products.

But like any MLM company, if you plan to make a business out of it, you must be willing to put in the necessary hard work, time, and effort to build your downline and create a reliable customer base. Network marketing has never been nor ever will be “an easy way to make money.”

  • This has now reached Northern Ireland. Seems to me like a pyramid scheme. Dodgy.

    I got sick from it! READ the article above! I drank the coffee for 4 days. I had an upset stomach every day I drank the coffee and a headache. My neck broke out in a rash every time I drank any of it with sweetener and creamer in it. The ingredients are not healthy, just read them.

    My name is cliff and I to had a bad reaction from drinking OG coffee. Needless to say I am no longer an OG Distributor and as a matter of fact I have gotten an attorney who is willing to take up my case and he asked me if I knew any others who were having bad reactions from drinking Organo Gold coffee. He wants to consider a class action suit in essence.

    I would like both Diane and Cindy who have had the same bad experience as I to please contact me if they wish to join me with getting this suit going against OG or any one else and finally blow the lid off of this so called health coffee.

    My name is Cliff and I can be reached here,- [email protected]
    • About two months ago I tried organo gold cafe mocha with ganoderma extract. I drank about 7 pouches in a week or so I woke up one morning feeling strange I noticed a weakness on the right side of my face I was eating my breakfast and also notice the taste was off. As the day progressed the weakness got worse. I went to the hospital and was diagnosed with bells palsy. Almost two months later the right side of my face is still parylized. But here is the kicker. My friend was over about four days ago and gave him coffee the organo gold with ganoderma. He called me this morning to ask how I was doing my face and such. He then says I have bells palsy as well. The onley thing we did that was the same was drink the coffee. And a few days later bells palsy in two people. What is going on here?? If anybody has heard of this or something similar please post it up. It took about 6 days for bells palsy to hit me. It took about four days before it hit my friend???
    • Drank a cup tonight about 7:30 pm. I said, will it keep me awake? I was told, no it will help with insomnia. Say What? About 1/2hour later, my face felt twitchy and I felt like I couldn't talk right. Started getting a headache which became intense. I rarely get headaches. Was awake most of the night. 😯😣☹😦
    • Hi Cliff, can u tell me more about how u faced OG coffee & does it officially certified by Singapore's Health Ministry?
  • The ignorance of the posters who are against mlm and organo gold is astounding.
    • I agree with you. This is just another common tactic, whereby you give a negative publicity to promote your opportunity. There are are more ethical way of promoting your business. You want to tell us, the thousands of people who use this coffee world wide are wrong and only a handful of you nay Sayers are right?
  • I am so tired of reading the "testimonials" of the Orgasmic Gold coffee. You make money by convincing people to sign up and locking them into an "auto-ship". The new members end up with boxes and boxes of product in their garage. They are told to give away free samples (not free for the new member!). From my honest experience, the only people that drink this stuff are members of the cult, oops I mean Orgasmic Gold.

    If you do background check on Bernardo T. Chua, you will see that he is not squeaky-clean. He is a Chinese-Filipino who once worked for Organo Excel in California.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernardo_T._Chua

    Now, I hope that at least some of the people that read this blog have critical thinking abilities. So listen to this: most of the "positive" comments regarding Organo Gold are from Organo Gold members, and distributors. All of the "negative" comments and reports, are from neutral 3rd parties.

    In other words, there are no 3rd party positive reviews. The coffee was tested by www.coffeecupnews.org and they found it to be the most foul-tasting black coffee they have ever tested, and the Latte and Mocha are mostly sugar. Put enough sugar in anything and it will taste better.

    The company is being investigated for false claims and shoddy business practices:

    http://www.krgv.com/news/special-investigation-organo-gold-federal-investigations/

    Again, the only people that have positive reviews of this product (and the company in general), are the members themselves. The protect Orgasmic Gold and Bernardo Chua in a "cult-like" way.

    Check out www.behindMLM.com for more comments and reviews regarding Organo Gold.

    Do you want a garage full of coffee that only your friends and family will drink (after you annoy the hell out of them)?

    Look at the ingredients of any of the Orgasmic "Organo Gold" products.......do your research. Do you see any healthy ingredients?

    Did you research the Ganoderma mushroom? Did you research the side effects of consuming too much Ganoderma?

    The coffee product makes Orgasmic Gold a legitimate MLM (multi-level marketing) company. The money is made from recruiting and the forced auto-ship. Even if the product was candy-coated deep-fried dog turds, I'm sure that some member would espouse the benefits of eating dog turds because the fiber inside the turd is organic and fiber is good for you!

    If you want to try to make a lot of money....and lose a lot of friends and family in the process, then by all means, join and sell that coffee dream!!!!

    • google up some ‘more popular’ brands and see what you find:

      http://www.thecorsaironline.com/lifestyle/2011/09/23/acrylamide-a-coffee-drinkers-worst-nightmare/

      Looks like every coffee can cause cancer and energy drinks kill you, so don’t buy ANY of those. Lots of people also bring up the “open case against OG by USDA/NOP”. Here it is, see page 5:

      http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/getfile?dDocName=STELPRDC5086877&acct=nopgeninfo

      OG paid the $4000 fine and the case has been CLOSED as the NOP report states. So, the compliance was achieved and hence OG has the USDA certification which they have on their product boxes.

      Amazing how people read one little thing and hold on to it for their deal lives and can’t move past it! Enjoy your coffee everyone!
    • do you have latest info other than the fda investigation in 2010. surely they would have been shut down by now
  • Anyone who trust the murdering FDA for approval of anything has the brains of a SHEEP. FDA IS PIMPED BY PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES AND SUPRESSES NATURAL HEALTH INFORMATION! DUUUUH!
  • http://www.krgv.com/news/special-investigation-organo-gold-federal-investigations/

    The FTC is just one of the federal agencies looking into Organo Gold. The Food and Drug Administration investigated Organo Gold's CEO in 2004. He was issued a warning that his company was breaking the law by making medical claims that could not be verified.
  • Yesterday, I got to be invited by someone to hear about this marketing along with other people. I wasn't really interested because I know multi-level marketing are all the same. Scam us into joining them. As the person is selling the business or the opportunity behind it, with all the get rich strategies, I focused on the product. I reconditioned myself into not falling into the networking part of it, but I find the product marketable. I am a coffee drinker and they had me try the mocha latte and I love it. I only consumed half of the sachet because it's already creamy as it is.

    If I'll just market the product, not getting too fancy about the claims and all.. Just the taste by itself is saleable. I'll focus on that.
    • Hello Cherrey. I want to warn you, I just called and cancelled my distributorship with Organo Gold. I have lost money but more importantly, I got sick from it! READ the article above! I drank the coffee for 4 days. I had an upset stomach every day I drank the coffee and a headache. My neck broke out in a rash every time I drank any of it with sweetener and creamer in it. The ingredients are not healthy, just read them. Then the worst.....I started to hemorrhage. I have been bleeding for 2 days non stop and still bleeding. My daughter has Von Willebrands which is a bleeding disorder. I only thank God that I did not send her any!! I have bleeding issues and am convinced that the coffee is what made me bleed severely. DO YOU WAN TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR CAUSING PEOPLE TO HEMORRHAGE AND POSSIBLY HAVE MISCARRIAGES OR WORSE? ALL FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY? I lost money in canceling but I am happy that I did not die or my daughter was not harmed or anyone else. Just wanted to share my story before you decide to sell something that could potentially harm others.
  • That is becauise the FDA only approves drugs that are sold behind the counter and are prescribed by a doctor. The FDA does not approve coffee or ganoderma, so be that, i am with OG and i make money big money!
  • If all of the benefits on this mushroom is true. Every chinese should be very healthy. But they're not. they still have cancer, diabetes, liver problems. ETC.. If OG is there to help people get rich by getting into this business, every member should be driving their own black Mercedes. but they're not. So' I'll just keep drinking freshly brewed starbucks, Work hard and live within my means. And live a happy life.
    • George, can you provide everyone with a link to the FDA site where it labels OG as a "fraud" PLEASE, oh, wait, you can't because that has never happened and such a page does not exist (I looked for hours). Here is real evidence against someone from OG, Mr. Chua, which is from 2004, when he was in a different company:

      http://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/2004/ucm146343.htm

      A warning letter - oh gosh, end of the world. This must be the ONLY company that had a warning letter issued again them... Actually, they issue many each month:

      http://www.fda.gov/iceci/enforcementactions/warningletters/default.htm#browse

      Or, google up some 'more popular' brands and see what you find:

    • Sounds like a recipe for success, unlike this OrganoBS
    • The FDA has listed Organo Gold a fraud.

      Do an Internet search for:

      Gano excel FDA warning letter
  • I just heard from someone in Singapore that one of the key members of Organo Gold in Malaysia ran away at least half a million Singapore dollars last month. This person can't be found at this point. So have this successful Bernado Chua, one of the founder for the company has done something about it with his amazing power of network contacts yet? lol
