Information about Herbalife - {Vanity - Apologies offered}
me | today | me

Posted on 07/07/2005 4:39:44 PM PDT by MikefromOhio

Sorry for the vanity here, but I am going to the best source for information that I can find....

My wife has received information for a company called Herbalife. It seems that by selling this stuff, she could make money. Do any of my fellow FReepers have any opinions of this company, what they sell, and how their process works?

Here's how it works.

Send them all your money.

They will send you a lifetime supply of Herbalife products.

Convince your friends and family to do the same.

it seems that the onus of getting the word out is on YOU, not the Herbalife people....

You can't beat large internet cost cutting retailers in the field anymore, both on price and freshness.

Run from it, there are better ways to throw your family's savings down the drain, if you're so inclined.

Of the Herbalife MLM people I've known, only two are successful at it, both own seperate retail businesses where their selling of herbalife is a side business that has no costs and outlays outside of inventory and stocking costs.

One owns a gym, the other owns a house/office building cleaning company. Point being they're face to face with potential clients for other business first.

I saw that site too...


well everyone, it seems to me that this is a HORRIBLE idea. I will pass that onto my wife. I hope she listens and I will show her all those websites you all sent to me...

Thanks again!

I know a guy who was on their television show 15 years ago. He claimed to make $20-$25,000 per month from Herbal Life.

But today he is out of the business and sells hairpieces.

Ask yourself: would she make more money from selling the product or recruiting subordinates? If it's the latter, beware!

Also, consider, what is the public opinion of herbalife? I understand it to be bad. What is the usefulness of the product? I do not know.

I would stay away from herbalife...you can look up info about this product on the web. I would like to take this time to let you know of a better product (maybe not money wise but healthwise). The company is called Mannatech and you can look that up also. Associated topics are glyconutritionals, glycoscience, and glycoinformation. This is at least 10 years old and I have not heard of anyone ill or dying from this product. It contains all-natural products(vegetables, fruits, roots, etc.) Does not contain ephedra or other like products. All ingredients are regulated and measured. I can tell you that this product is not intended to treat, cure, or diagnose...BUT, I was diagnosed with pre-cancer of the cervix and carcinoma in-situ of the uterus and after 8 months on this product I had my first NORMAL pap smear! Its worth a try to look it up.

What is y’all’s opinion on taking the shakes to help lose weight? We have a friend who lost a lot of weight in 6 months and we’ve been trying the glutton free version the last few weeks.

I’ve seen some stories on the net regarding strokes and liver problems. Has anyone had any experience with using the shakes to lose weight?

Thanks!
