Herbalife nutritional supplements are food – not medicine. If you can eat, you can use the Herbalife products. Since these products are nutritional food supplements, they are safe to use. However, certain individuals including pregnant or lactating women, insulin dependent diabetics, individuals with high blood pressure and those with compromised kidney function are advised to consult with their physician before beginning to use this or any other food supplement.
Given the specificity of the formulation of these products, it is possible that, apart from losing weight or gaining weight, you will experience various body changes that may be caused by the natural function of body detoxification or improper use of the product. I suggest you to speak to me before you order your products so that I can assist you with the right products tailored to your needs.
✔ It's because of the way Herbalife chose to operate on the market.
Companies that manufacture nutritional supplements usually place their products on store shelves and then deal with classic marketing techniquest like commercials, banners, radio and TV advertising, but Herbalife simply chose a different way of placing their products on the market. Being sold through stores, pharmacies or only through independent distributors is simply a matter of how the company choses to place the product on the market.
With a network marketing approach like Herbalife has, the products have a person who can pass on their own experience and whose personal testimony speaks of the strength of the product, which is more powerful than a thousand advertisements.
✔ Being sold through retail stores isn't, in any case, a guarantee that a product is safe to consume.
Health Inspections - Many times you will hear about certain products and food being withdrawn from sale because health inspections found viruses or contaminations. The same can happen to products sold through direct sales.
Hypovitaminosis / Hypervitaminosis - The levels of vitamins and minerals in all Herbalife formulas are carefully designed to assure that individuals consuming them will develop neither deficiencies nor excesses. All of the formulas are created to assure that all individuals, regardless of their nutritional needs, receive optimum nutrition. Studies demonstrate there is no "buildup" of vitamins or minerals associated with use of these products.
Also, these products have been carefully reviewed and approved by each and every Ministry of Health in every Country Herablife is available on the market. Dietary supplements like the ones manufactured by Herbalife are subject to strict controls and in entering the market of certain countries they must all pass certain control tests and the meet all the conditions set by each country (like the California Proposition 65), in order to be sold within the borders of that country. So having passed the quality and safety control of more than 90 countries worldwide, we may say for certain that this products are the most controlled products you can get.
✔ It is solely dependent on the distributor.
When a product is placed on the market through independent distributors the company expects all distributers to attend training.
People that sign up as independent distributors are usually trained to sell these products. Therefore they will be competent to assist you on the use of the products, it is important that you ask them for a daily schedule to follow and use the products strictly as per instructions. When the schedule is followed correctly, people get good results.
Herbalife products work. They have already helped millions of people lose or gain weight and live a healthier life.
✔ Herbalife places a top priority on providing high-quality, safe and effective products.
The company works closely with both Scientific and Medical Advisory Boards, a team of distinguished doctors, scientists and nutritional experts, who help develop quality products.
Through a donation from Herbalife, the Mark Hughes Cellular & Molecular Nutrition Laboratory has been established at the University of California, Los Angeles. Named after Herbalife's founder, the lab conducts research to advance the fields of herbal and nutritional science.
The Formula 1 studies, conducted at University of California, Los Angeles; University of Ulm, Germany; and Seoul University National Hospital, Korea, showed that using Formula 1 meal replacements twice a day led to effective weight loss. Individuals in the studies who had certain weight-related conditions showed improvement in those conditions as a result of using Formula 1 meal replacement shakes.
✔ Herbalife products are based entirely on herbal nutrition.
Herbalife products do not contain drugs, medications, hormones or other synthetic agents. All ingredients in the production program must fulfill three important conditions: purity, potency and stability. This is how we maintain the high level of quality associated with the program's name.
The herbal mixtures used in these products have been created by experts to maximize nutritional potency. The herbs are of the highest quality available anywhere in the world and are free of pesticide residues and other possible contaminants or genetic modifications. The compression of the herbal mixtures occurs under -180 degrees in strict quality control to assure both purity and safety.
✔ It's entirely up to you how long you want to use them.

✔ Please, do not compare a healthy meal replacement with a protein blend or whey protein powder.
The amount of protein contained in the "Formula 1" meal replacement is exactly the right amount our body needs in one meal. Remember that we're talking about a meal replacement not a protein supplement. A meal replacement is a mixture of proteins, vitamins, minerals and botanical ingredients wile a protein supplement contains only protein. Also it's impossible to state how much protein is "enough". The “right” amount of protein for an individual depends on many factors… including activity levels, age, muscle mass, physique goals and current state of health. As with most tissues in the body, muscles are dynamic and are constantly being broken down and rebuilt. If you aim to gain muscle, the body must be synthesizing more muscle protein than it is breaking down so therefore you will be needing some more proteins than the classic Formula 1.contains, that's why there are other specific Herbalife products designed to adjust your protein intake.
✔ Studies confirm that there are many benefits of soy protein.
Soybean has been in use for more than 5000 years and it's innocuous. Soy protein is used in almost every processed food and it is the #1 ingredient in the best-selling meal replacement shake in the world.
The latest studies into soy protein suggest it does not decrease testosterone and raise estrogen, as previously thought. Studies presented at the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Meeting, found the post-workout consumption of soy drink to be statistically significant in hastening mass, fat-bone free mass (FBFM), and increases in strength, when compared to other post-workout formulations (skim milk and maltodextrin beverage), both of which had a similar degree of efficacy. This study demonstrated that intact proteins from both soy and milk protein are effective in supporting muscle hypertrophy, lending a degree of support to soy as a legitimate post-workout nutritional beverage.
✔ Herbalife goal is to make nutrition taste great.
That means different things to different people as some individuals focus purely on nutritional value, others on taste. To strike a balance, Herbalife formulas use a variety of sweeteners to create flavors the consumers will enjoy. Herbalife sugars are all low in glycemic index and won’t spike blood sugar. This is important, because a blood sugar spike may be followed by a quick drop, which might leave people feeling hungry, tired, irritable and cause an insuline reaction.
✔ Herbalife uses primarily fructose because it’s a great tasting carbohydrate.
The fructose Herbalife uses in its products is derived form orange peel or beets which is a more natural source than corn sweetener. Pure fructose frequently gets confused with high fructose corn syrup. Fructose is a natural, simple sugar commonly found in fruits and honey. The absence of glucose makes pure fructose fundamentally different from high fructose corn syrup which you usually find in most candy bars. The good thing about fructose is that is does NOT go directly into the bloodstream after you eat it (like other simple sugars do). Instead, fructose takes a stop in the liver to get metabolized which slows down its release into the blood.
✔ Sugar is an important part of a healthy diet.
Sugars are essentially carbohydrates and carbohydrates are necessary to boost our energy. The important part is that in Herbalife products, with low glycemic sugars, there are also proteins and fibers inside, that also help to slow the release of the fructose which is why people feel satisfied with energy for 2-3 hours. Also, the amount of fructose is between 9-12 grams depending on which product you use. Some of the new shakes may have only 6 grams of sugar. Each gram of sugar has 4 calories so a shake with 12 grams of sugar is only 48 calories which is very little when you consider a typical soda has 200 calories of sugar.
✔ There are also some non-artificial (like powdered honey and Stevia plant or Monk Fruit), and artificial (such as sucralose) sweeteners added. Artificial sweeteners, such as sucralose, are exceptionally tasty, pass through the body undigested and have a value of 0 in the glycemic index and are always used at minimal doses to avoid excessive intake.
Latley Herbalife has decided to swich from artificial sweeteners to non-artificial and currently sucralose is being replaced in some formulas by non-artificial sweeteners like powdered honey.
