Herbalife Nutrition highest industry standards for all of our products guide

There are no health risks associated with Herbalife. Before a product makes it onto the shelf, each product journey follows strict processes governed by EU and local laws, regulations and internal guidelines to make sure it's safe for consumption. These guidelines start from product concept all the way through to packaging. Herbalife Nutrition follows a 14-step quality assurance guide to make sure you’re consuming only the highest quality products.  

Across the 90 + markets we operate in, we have dedicated Quality Assurance teams. These teams make sure that any new or existing Herbalife Nutrition product follows all local government food regulations. 

You may notice across the Herbalife Nutrition portfolio; some products or flavours might only exist in Europe and Africa whereas other products and flavours might only exist in the USA. This is due to our understanding of preferences for taste and ingredients in different markets and also due to our compliance with local regulations. 

How does Herbalife Nutrition ensure there are no health risks associated with products? 

Herbalife Nutrition has taken part in multiple studies and clinical trials to ensure there our products are completely safe.  

A study conducted in 2010 by Li Z, et al, on NIH-PubMed concluded that Protein-enriched meal replacements do not carry any adverse effects on health. Both high-protein and standard-protein diets were well tolerated and sustainable. There were no changes in liver function, renal function or bone mineral density based on routine clinical assessments.  

This study showed that both the HP (high protein-enriched) and SP (standard protein) diets resulted in the expected weight loss typical of a Meal Replacement diet plan in individuals over 12 months.
