Pro baseballer Alex Rameriz on XS Energy Drink – “It’s just unbelievable!”

Alex Rameriz is a pro baseball player with the Yomiuri Giants pro-baseball team in Japan, the current champions and known as “The New York Yankees of Japan”. He played three seasons in the Major Leagues in the US, with the Cleveland Indians and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Apparently he’s been playing exceptionally well the past year. Have a look what he told The Japan Times -

Yomiuri Giants slugger Alex Ramirez is feeling better than ever. Ramirez has had an extra spring in his step this year and he’s crediting a little bottle he says packs a big punch.

Ramirez has taken to drinking energy drink Xs, which he said has him feeling better and is aiding his training this spring.

“It’s just unbelievable,” Ramirez said of his newfound secret that he said he found through Amway. “Before the game, that’s what I drink. Last year I was taking Black Powder. But I feel the difference between this and the other things. It’s unbelievable.”

Ramirez said he was especially pleased because the drink helped him keep his energy levels high, as opposed “to feeling that low after a while” that comes from caffeinated drinks.

I’ve not been able to find the ads published online anywhere (why not, Amway??)  but I did find the following video published by Amway IBO organisation eFinity on their FaceBook page. It’s apparently a behind the scenes type “teaser” of the upcoming campaign, probably produced by Amway to show IBO leadership. I look forward to seeing the actual ads!


Forbes Magazine promotes Amway’s anti-aging products!

Forbes.com has just posted their most recent listing of the world’s billionaires, and Amway Founder Rich DeVos is listed at #176 with an estimated net worth of $4.5 billion. What’s truly incredible though is the amazing youthful looks of the 84 year old Rich DeVos. Now, I know that Amway’s Artistry brand includes some superb anti-aging products, and combined with Nutrilite they’re unparalled – but I never realised they were this good!


For those missing the point, that’s Dick DeVos (Richard DeVos Jnr), son of Amway founder Richard DeVos. Forbes made the same mistake last year, before later correcting it. Still, at least this year they didn’t call us peddlers of a  “pyramid selling scheme”.

51 years and Amway continues to grow – $8.4 billion for 2009

Alticor, Amway’s parent company, has reported record sales of $8.4billion for 2009, a 2.3 percent increase of 2008. Real growth, accounting for currency fluctuations, was 5.9%.

Apart from Amway, the sales figures include revenue from other Alticor concerns such as Amway Hotel Corporation and recent acquisitions like Gurwitch Products and Metagenics, however the bulk of the sales is from the direct selling giant, Amway Corporation.

As noted with last years sales release, Amway is not providing breakdowns of particular markets, however they did note – Continue reading
