Here are the answers to a few common questions regarding our products.

Are these ingredients good for me? Are these ingredients scientifically tested?

Herbalife employs the best talent in the health and nutrition industry who make sure that all the ingredients and the products meet the most demanding standards. From the fields where the crops are grown, to the distribution centres where they are picked up by end consumers, every step is monitored and checked.

When they start creating a product, Herbalife’s scientists start with researching how each of the ingredients that go into it help with your general health and well being. Every ingredient that goes into every product is extensively researched and substantiated by scientific literature.

Are all the ingredients mentioned on the label really in there?

You can be most certain that they are! In all countries, supplements are very strictly regular, and Herbalife always has a goal to meet or exceed the minimum requirements for the respective country.

When products reach the end of the manufacturing cycle, they are tested to make sure that everything that is stated on the label is actually in the product. Products are tested to make sure that all the nutritional values and the taste remain the same until their expiry date.

Where do the ingredients come from?

The screening process to become a Herbalife supplier lasts on average 1.5 years, so that we can make sure that everything is grown to the precise Herbalife standards. Growers are visited on a regular basis by the company’s scientists and doctors who help them achieve and maintain the quality you expect.

Herbalife is also unique among supplement companies with its methods of post-marketing controls, that check that the end consumer always gets exactly what he or she expects from the products.
