CAN PATIENTS WITH MEDICAL PROBLEMS SUCH AS DIABETES, HYPERTENSION, CANCER, ADHD ETC. USE YOUR PRODUCTS?
Yes, if they can eat, they can use Herbalife Nutrition products as these are meal replacement products and nutrition supplements. In NO way do we advise on medications as this is done by their doctor. We coach clients on how to use the products to achieve the maximum nutrition.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DONT DRINK WATER AND DONT LIKE DRINKING WATER?
Your body needs water whether you drink it or not. If you dont drink enough water, your body will recycle water from your colon, stool, liver and kidneys. This slows down your metabolism and impairs your body function. This manifests in skin problems, low energy levels, constipation, bloating, headaches and many other health issues. Increase your water intake gradually until you reach your required levels.
CAN I DRINK FRUIT JUICE?
Fruit juice is loaded with sugar (and preservatives and stabilisers) and is stripped of all the fiber from the natural fruit. Rather sip on water, aloe, or the instant herbal beverage througout the day.
SOME OF YOUR PRODUCTS ARE HIGH IN CAFFIENE - ARE THEY SAFE?
Herbalife Instant Herbal Beverage (the tea) is made with a natural caffiene. It is processed differently to tea and coffee (it's raw). An average cup of coffee contains around 85mg of caffiene and our tea contains 65mg of caffiene. People with caffiene sensitivity should read product labels carefully.
I’M PREGNANT, IS IT SAFE TO USE HERBALIFE PRODUCTS?
Herbalife Nutrition products are meal replacement products and nutrition supplements. They contain no unsafe ingredients and can be consumed throughout pregnancy and while breastfeeding .
