Herbalife is a company that began 33 years ago with a “mission for nutrition,” according to the company website. Today, Herbalife has more than a million distributors worldwide, offering the line of Herbalife to people who want to lose weight and look and feel better. The weight management line consists of meal programs and supplements that can help dieters achieve their weight loss goals more efficiently. Supplements include those for appetite suppression, metabolism boosters and enhancers. While we appreciate that Herbalife appears to offer something for everyone, we prefer a single formula that can effectively meet all three of these needs for convenience and cost friendliness to the consumer.

The Herbalife products are sold through independent distributors and through some online retailers. We were unable to find the products for sale on the company website. To connect with a distributor in your area, you must first supply information about how you learned about the company. There is also information available on the company website about how to become a distributor.

Ingredients

For the purpose of this review, we will take a look at one Herbalife weight loss supplement, Total Control. This product claims to boost metabolism and aid in weight loss without irritability or restlessness. The ingredients in this formula include calcium, green tea leaves extract, dried ginger root extract, dried theobroma extract, dried yerba mate extract, astragalus, celery, fennel, hawthorne berry, licorice, marshmallow, parsley, suma, dried cinnamon extract and alfalfa.

Product Features

Herbalife offers a 30-day money back guarantee on all purchases. It also provides ample information about the science and research that goes into its formulas. In addition, we found customer testimonials that back the claims of the products. This is the type of information that we encourage consumers to look for; because it shows that the company has confidence in their products.

While we are pleased to see healthy ingredients on the list, the large number may reduce the potency of the active ingredients. Green tea is the only serious weight loss ingredient in the formula. The substance can boost the metabolism and suppress appetite. However, green tea is more effective with other weight loss ingredients like chromium and safe stimulants. We don’t see any other active weight loss ingredients on the list.

Advantages

  • Herbalife is a proven company with a long reputation.
  • The products are reasonably priced and come with a money back guarantee.

Disadvantages

  • Herbalife Total Control does not contain many weight loss ingredients.
  • The large number of ingredients may reduce the potency of the formula.
  • Products are not available for sale through the company website.

Conclusion

Herbalife is a reputable company with a relatively long history of providing weight loss and nutritional supplements. However, we are skeptical whether the long formulas and lack of active ingredients will really be the most effective way of dropping the pounds. We believe that other options filled with more potent ingredients may be a better choice.

    no side effects, but for weight loss initially you have to calculate your BMI according to your BMI you have to use herbalife product for this contact your local herbalife club. generally formula for wait loss is. you have to drink 250ml shake instead of breakfast and dinner, shake consists of you have to blend milk by adding herbalife shake powder which has different flavour including that you have to mix 1 table spoon of protein powder if you add more protein powder shake become bitter, above is the process for making shake. including shake you have to take afresh. you have to mix afresh powder either in hot water or in cold water it is for energy as well as it will help for purify blood. simple formula for weight loss using herbalife is take food only one time (only lunch no breakfast no dinner). for breakfast and dinner you have to take milk shake. you can eat fruits if you feel hungry…….

    I have used Herbalife’s core products and the Total. For me, the Total did speed weight loss and reduced my appetitite. I am no chemist. Have complete faith in the esteemed scientific/medical advisory board Herbalife has made of scinetists, doctors and nutritionists. Overall, nice article.

    There is an ingredient in the powder shakes or the pills that has messed up my face. I have dry patches near and behind my ear, on the sides of my face are dry patches near my mouth and under my neck. They itch continually. So dry that they pealed after putting on Vaseline to moisten them up. I need to know what it is and what to do about this?

    Firstly…drinking this supplement does not help you lose as much weight as you want. key word is As Much. IN ORDER to lose a healthy amount of weight requires not only tea but also adequate exercise and this tea is a very good companion. However of you Only want to solely rely on drinking this to lose up to 10kg of weight. i suggest you better dont waste your money. Go out and run or swim for at least half an hour to an hour per day. BUT this is a good nutrition supplement though…

    I used this product for 1month and lost 9ponds.. I stop for a while because the place I was going to closed & I never seek another place to go until recently. I started back 5days ago. I have not check my weight yet. Because I want to wait another week. The only side effects I had with it is. I tried to eat something that I probably was not suppose to eat was. Dunkin Donuts sandwich. I felt like i wanted to throw up all day. Had no appetite the whole day. What I love about it. It stops the craving for junk foods and thats something I enjoy is cookies..Yes the product is expensive I think its worth it. BUT IF U HAVE HEALTH PROBLEMS LIKE ANYTHING CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE USING ANYTHING…I’M A HEALTHY 42old so I started off with the starter kit..it contains 3 drinks I do at night only to loose weight. #1 aloe make u go to bathroom
    #2 Tea Energy
    #3 Shake Dinner.
