There’s a new kid on the block on the Network Marketing Juice block. It’s called Zrii (pronounced Zree as in tree). Its formula is based on the Amalaki fruit, a fruit that grow in the lowlands of the Himalayas. It was apparently used in the ancient science of Ayurveda.

Amalaki (emblica officinalis) is a fruit which grows at the base of the pristine Himalayan mountain range in northern India. Ayurveda describes amalaki as the single most important botanical for promoting cellular rejuvenation, immune function, and increased vitality(Source)

There seems to be some confusion about its launch date however. Certain press releases such as this one, claim the product was launched 10/3/07. However the main site (here) says it’s still in pre-launch. The main site has the unfortunate feature of an automatically lauchned audio-visual SitePal style talking head. She sounds like a 12 year old girl! Could they not find an adult woman to lend her voice? You can turn her off by hovering your mouse over the area of her feet to show the object control.

That said, I suppose the best of this is that you can get in early. And the best time to join an Network Marketing company is at or near the beginning. However, it doesn’t do any good to just join them as they roll out. Once the buzz stops, will it be a sustainable product and opportunity? That’s always the question.

Update December 2007: Looks like that link I listed as “main site” was just a distributor site I followed from the press release.  And now it’s selling Xango. Now that’s interesting and I’m sure there’s a story behind it, but that distributor bailed pretty quickly didn’t she? Below is the link to the actual Zrii site:
