Who are the people behind J-Global?

The leaders behind J-Global are Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis as CEO’s. The person you frequently see during launching and expo is its Chief Visionary Officer Scott Lewis. He is in charge of the global promotion of J-Global as a company and the brand.

Randy Ray has a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. He has over forty two years experience in the computer industry. Notable among owners of these major systems are the Red Lobster Inns of America, NASA (Space Shuttle Launch Processing System), DOT (National Wheel Rail Simulator System), Personal Blood Storage, and ICCA (Cancer Centers of America).

Randy is listed in “International Who’s Who,” and he received awards as Florida Businessman of the Year in both 2003 and 2004. He has been working in the MLM industry for more than sixteen years.

While Wendy Lewis graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a BA in Sociology and Mathematics, and later received an MED in Educational Psychology from Temple University. Wendy was the President of AMSC and the Director of Customer Operations responsible for all the training and support activities.

These leaders have proven themselves successful in their chosen fields and are now combining their knowledge, experience and expertise to give us a superlative system which is J-Global. The main reason why J-Global is the fastest rising MLM company in the world and even received numerous citations in this industry is because of the unparalleled quality of leadership these top people have shown over the years.

DISCLAIMER: Product results may vary from person to person.




In summary, these products ROCK. They’ve been developed by some of the greatest scientists and doctors in their respective fields. In fact, one of the doctors is actually an advisor for NASA astronaut’s nutrition.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, J-Global started back in 2009. If the products aren’t as amazing as they are, they wouldn’t still be around today. They wouldn’t be on their track to becoming a billion dollar company. They’re growing in leaps and bounds with 30+ operational offices globally and shipping products to over 100 countries.

I’m personally using the product. My husband uses it. I let my kids take the products for their well-being. If I don’t trust the products, I wouldn’t have it taken by my love ones. Simple as that.

Also, I’ve walked away from a substantial income from my previous company of which I was their #1 Leader in the whole of Asia and Singapore because I strongly believe that that J-Global will offer me a bigger passive income and higher growth prospects over the next few years.

Personally, I love this business. It comes with a “business-in-a-box” for e-commerce and they have cutting-edge breakthrough products that was shared earlier.

On top of that, for financial reward, the business can help you to make as much as USD $100,000 per month.

You can directly buy these products in J-Global official website. You have the option for these products to be delivered right at your own home too.

What we’ve learnt from Joseph Schooling’s Olympic Gold Medal win in the 100m Butterfly Final @ Rio 2016 which was won against all odds:

  1. Start working on your Goal as early as you possibly can. Start it Now! The Power is in the Now.
  2. Look at your clearly defined, written Goals daily and sacrifice everything to achieve it. Remember why you are “here”.
  3. Focus on Daily Activities that are important and go for gold.
  4. Have the Right Attitude, No Grit, No Guts, No Glory. Don’t settle for second best. Give your all.
  5. Train / Work hard. Start your day as early as possible.
  6. Learn from the best. Get a coach or mentor to help you.
  7. Be Positive. We all have doubts, the trick is to never look back. Believe in yourself. Be confident you can achieve anything you set out to do.
  8. Size does not matter. Being small doesn’t mean you are invisible. Make Big Steps that makes you Unstoppable.
  9. Stay away from Negative people who do not share your goals. Most importantly, do not engage in negative self-talk. Keep your mind in positive mode always.
  10. Work for a higher cause. Serve beyond Self. Be part of something bigger.
  11. Practice Does Not Make Perfect– “Only Correct Practice Does“.
  12. Have a good support group. Surround yourself with people who want to see you succeed.
  13. Prioritise your tasks. You can’t win every battle. Choose which activity you must excel in and win.

2016 Olympian Joseph Schooling from Singapore is on top of the world because of these factors. If we want to be a world champion, we have to adopt Joseph Schooling‘s approach to success.





A short interview (video) with Sam Renga, USANA Diamond Director and Million Dollar Club member talks about what he has learnt from Nanncy Long in network marketing / MLM 16 years ago..These secrets has helped him build a big and strong team with USANA and become a successful network marketeer today.

The 4 Secrets of Being A Successful Network Marketeer / MLM

  • Determine what you want.
  • Decide what you are willing to give up or reschedule to get what you want.
  • Associate with people who will help you get what you want.
  • Have a Plan that works and work the plan.

Sam was one of Nancy Long‘s downline in Nancy’s first MLM company 16 years ago. Previous to this he had no experience in Network Marketing and did not take any supplements.

He became inspired when he read/listened to Randy Gage’s “Escape the Rat Race” book recommended by Nancy Long. That led him on a long journey to be an expert in this industry by reading as many of the network marketing classics available in the market.

Though they are competitors in the network marketing industry, they have stayed in touch and have mutual respect for one another.

Sam also talked about Nancy Long’s forthcoming new book about how to become successful in direct sales based on her over 30 years experience in this dynamic and robust industry. An industry that has made her millions of dollars and take her to the top of the 3 previous direct sales companies she’s been involved in. We will announce details of Nanncy‘s new book here when details are available.

Thank you Sam for being generous in your sharing. – Sam Renga, talks to Nanncy Long

Before you start taking any herbal medicine or supplement be sure you assess your vitamin needs. Consider your lifestyle and diet. Look for nutritional deficiencies in your diet. There are some medical tests you can do to find out your vitamin or nutritional deficiencies or do research on possible remedies for health symptoms you may have.

It has been well documented that our food supply isn’t as rich in nutrients as it once was. This is due to several factors including mono-crop farming, depleted soil, earlier harvest for longer transports and the varieties being grown. Ideally we take supplements with the intention of supplementing our existing diet.

Environmental toxins and stress can also contribute to health issues.



Below are some tips on how you can select good supplements / vitamins that can help you overcome some of your health challenges and help you stay healthy:

1. Serving Size / Dosage

If the supplement is only one serving size per day especially a multivitamin, you are wasting your time. It is not possible for producers of vitamins to pack all the vitamins into one capsule/tablet to complement your healthy diet.

2. When to take a supplement

It is vitally important to take the vitamins at the right time to help optimize your nutrient absorption. Read the label.

3. Quality

Not all vitamins are created equal. Quality of your supplement makes a big difference as to whether it will help you stay healthy. Avoid partial vitamins which are combined with other chemicals. They are completely different from vitamins from whole, real food.

If you remove a part from the whole, you get “synthetic,” “isolated,” or “fractionated” pieces of the whole. it is not the same. Your body cannot absorb synergistically synthetic supplements with bio-availability being the key concern.

Partial vitamins also requires higher dosages to work as well as good natural vitamins. It is like comparing fast food with real whole foods. The nutrient value lost can be more than 50%. Furthermore, these anti-nutrients can deplete the nutritional value of your foods just like cooking can alter the nutritional value of your food.

4. Price has bearing on Quality

Price is usually a good indication if the supplement is of a good quality. If you buy it from a discount store or from a small producer, you do not know if they have good manufacturing practices in place. If it is cheap, it usually means that there is very little R&D that went into the making of the product. For the true value of the product, compare cost per day than cost per bottle.

5. Where you buy your supplements?

Is it a highly reputable company with highest quality control manufacturing practices?

6. RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance and RD (Recommended Daily Intake) guidelines.

The supplement must meet with the specified minimum RDA/RD amounts.

7. Must include added bonus of essential minerals.

These minerals add their unique layer of nutritional support. Many specialised vitamins lack important minerals.

8. Whether it is evaluated by laboratories or received awards.

Labs that provide clinical evaluation of the vitamin or awards are a good indication of the quality of the supplement. Look for research studies to show that the product is clinically proven to support health.

9. Look for manufacturers with a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) facility.

A GMP facility must comply with rigid standards, the same standards required by pharmaceutical companies as mandated by the FDA.
This assures that what is in the bottle is the same as what is on the label.
Discrepancies happen more often than you might realise!
Recently a study on 55 brands of vitamin D supplements found they contained between 9% – 146% of what was listed on the label!
Next, you want to know that the raw materials are of high quality.

10. Does the manufacturer have a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for each ingredient.

Having a COA means that the raw material is tested by an independent lab and deemed to be contaminant-free.

11. Is it NSF certified. is a respected third-party quality assurance organisation. It verifies that a facility complies with good manufacturing practices, and takes proper steps to ensure product safety and accurate labelling.

12. Other Seals of Approval

Seals of approval from, the Natural Products Association (NPA), the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), and others are indicative that the products are the best supplements to take. However, the absence of such a seal is no reflection on quality, either good or bad.

13. Look for transparent labeling.

Some products contain “proprietary formulas” that do not reveal ingredients’ amounts and concentrations.
It should have the herb’s scientific name, plant part, and an expiration date. It’s also nice to see the plant’s place of origin and whether it was grown organically or wild-crafted (picked in the wild). Companies will say they do this to protect their formulations from their competitors, and we understand this. But less-than-reputable companies hide behind these words to conceal the fact that there isn’t enough of specific ingredients to do you any good.

If you have allergies, you should check if it contains soy, nuts, animal products etc.

14. Avoid supplements which contain binders or coatings

Binders and coatings holds the product together so it can be easily swallowed. Also look out for fillers.  Some of these substances may be bad for your health. Research to find out which substances should be avoided.

15. Label Red Flags

Look for “red flags” on labels—Sucrose (sugar), artificial colouring and flavouring, preservatives, and additives such as shellac, chlorine and other chemicals should be avoided. Check to see if it contains hydrogenated oils.
These are usually hidden in the “other ingredients” category. Watch out for meaningless terms like “nutraceutical” which does not add any value to the supplement.

16. Make sure you are getting the therapeutic dosage.

Some companies intentionally add a miniscule amount of an expensive ingredient so they can add it to the label. “Fairy dust” does not give you right amounts of the ingredient for it to be effective in providing a solution to your health.

17. The vitamin must be formulated with a knowledgeable researchers or herbalists.

Buy products from herbalists who understand the required dosages and possible interactions. The americanherbalistsguild provides useful information on various herbs and how they should be used.

18. Beware of Private Label Supplements

These are supplements created by manufacturers based on existing generic supplements. Look for spelling mistakes, no contact numbers, and hype claims about the value of their product to get an indication of the product reliability.

19. Look for a 30 Day Return Policy

Reputable companies will offer a 30 Day money back guarantee.

20. Avoid overly expensive products.

Expensive does not mean that that it is a very good product. If is it over US$100a bottle, you may be paying too much for the product.

21. Look for Standardized Herbal Extracts vs Whole Herbs.

Traditional herbalists prefer the use of whole herbs, also called full spectrum extracts. Standardize extracts usually means the use of harsh chemical solvents to isolate the main active ingredients. Check for Absorption and Bioavailability Rates.

22. Check whether your supplement will dissolve

USP refers to U.S. Pharmacopeia, an organization that was established to create state-of-the-art standards to ensure the quality of medicines that humans use. This includes vitamin and mineral supplements. An example of the kind of USP designation that you want to look for on the label of a product you are considering would be something like, “this product conforms to the USPXXVII requirements for disintegration and dissolution”.

23. Customer feedback

Always be on guard on user comments on social media. Recommendations can be bought. Always read in between the lines of such user recommendations. Comments on Amazon, particularly those who are “Amazon Verified Purchase” are more reliable.  Put more weight age on recommendations from other health professionals.
The Better Business Bureau rating is also a good gauge of whether the company has a good customer rating and low on complaints or legal issues.

24. Expiration Dates

Always look for an expiration date. While some nutrients, such as calcium and other minerals, maintain their potency for several years, others like vitamins B and C have a significantly shorter shelf life. The FDA doesn’t require expiration dates on supplement bottles, so many companies don’t provide them. I do not recommend buying such products. Who knows how long they’ve been sitting on the shelf or warehouse?

25. Are Dietary Supplements Regulated by the Government?

Contrary to popular belief, dietary supplements are regulatory govt organisations eg

  • FDA regulates the manufacturing of supplements (ingredients that can be included in the supplements and the manufacturing practices)
  • FTC regulates the marketing of vitamins and supplements (eg proper labelling and benefit claims of the products).

26. Adverse Reactions to your Vitamins / Supplements

Don’t believe all the propaganda about vitamins and supplements being unsafe. There are very instances of people getting an adverse reaction from alternative medicinal products if you adhere to the label instructions and choose a good quality supplement. If you are worried about adverse reactions on your supplements, you should be even more worried of the medicines that your doctor is prescribing routinely to you. Do careful research on the medications you are taking to assess your risk of adverse reactions, poisoning, and even death which your doctor will not tell you because if you knew, you wouldn’t take them.

What if I pick the wrong supplement?

If the vitamin supplement you are considering doesn’t meet the standards discussed above, it can pass right through your body and do you no good at all.

To give you an example of this, I have actually seen a photo of an x-ray taken of a person’s colon area with the vertebrae of their backbone off to one side. In this photo I could clearly see two supplement tablets, still intact, looking like they had just come out of the bottle. These supplement tablets were poorly made, never disintegrated and would soon end up in the toilet. Photos like these are a graphic illustration of the fact that just because you swallow your vitamin supplement doesn’t mean your body is going to be able to use it.



If you have gotten to the point where you are looking for a vitamin and mineral supplement to take, congratulations. You have taken a positive step towards improving your health and taking better care of your body. However, make sure to continue that commitment to yourself by doing your homework and making sure that you choose a good quality supplement. It makes no sense to go that far then end up wasting your money on something that your body can’t even use.

Source on above Supplements and Vitamins Usage Research:
Archives of Internal Medicine (now called JAMA Internal Medicine) was Why US Adults Use Dietary Supplements by Reagan L. Bailey and colleagues from the Office of Dietary Supplements at the National Institutes of Health. It also relies on the NHANES dataset, a representative survey of US civilians which began collecting specific information on reasons for supplement use in 2007. Data are collected through interviews, and a Dietary Supplement Questionnaire was used to gather detailed information on each participant’s use of vitamins and other supplements. This survey reports the results from 11,956 adults (children, young adults (< 20 years), and all pregnant and lactating women were excluded from analysis). Here’s the snapshot of the participants:
