Nourishing the Potential in Everyone

About Us

Herbalife Nutrition is a trusted leader in nutrition with more than 40 years of experience nourishing the potential in everyone. We improve nutritional habits around the world through high-quality, great-tasting, science-backed products that can be customized to meet individual needs and taste preferences.

We cater to a variety of daily nutritional needs, offering choices to consumers with products that can be enjoyed any time of day. By providing high-quality nutrition products and economic opportunities, we're making a positive impact in communities worldwide.

Our Products

We offer a full line of great-tasting nutrition products that can be customized to meet individual needs and help consumers achieve their unique wellness goals. Our products include meal replacements, protein shakes, teas, aloes, high-protein snacks, vitamins and supplements, sports nutrition, and outer nutrition products, all backed by science.

Our Business Model

Direct selling is our business model. The model avoids intermediaries in the supply chain and sells products directly to consumers: it is a person-to-person sale. Our science-backed nutrition products are available exclusively through Herbalife Nutrition independent distributors, who are entrepreneurs dedicated to supporting their customers’ nutrition and well-being goals.

Most independent distributors do the business part-time. Some distributors use their experience to build sales organizations that can grow, while most simply focus on selling Herbalife Nutrition products to people they know to earn supplemental income.

Our Commitment to Quality

Our products are grounded in science, with more than 300 doctors, dietitians, and scientists who have expertise in nutrition, science, and health dedicated to developing safe and beneficial products.

Our scientific staff ensures that we use the best available processes and equipment, ensuring that our procedures are at the highest possible standard. We use only the finest ingredients from credible suppliers committed to meeting our high standards. Partnering with trusted suppliers who have been producing quality ingredients for many years also allows us to have traceability of the active ingredients in our products.
