If you’re looking for a product that boasts the ability to curb hunger and will fuel you all day long, Herbalife protein powder may be the protein shake for you. With 20 vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients while also containing zero amounts of cholesterol and trans-fat, Herbalife is a formidable protein powder in the health and wellness arena.  

The benefits of Herbalife don’t stop there. The protein powder also contains aminogen, bromelain, and papain to support protein digestion. It also contains 9 grams of protein and healthy fiber to help support weight management while also including the antioxidant vitamins C and E.  

If you’re looking for a fast, healthy meal alternative, Herbalife may be for you.  

Herbalife Shake Review

Nutrients 

As mentioned, Herbalife certainly packs a nutritional punch in their products. With only 90 calories and 0 grams of cholesterol, this lean shake is geared to help you reach your weight loss goals.   

However, Herbalife is not organic, contains zero superfoods, and has a heavy amount of artificial sweeteners. Additionally, this product contains low amounts of protein (9 grams per serving) and contains only 3 grams of dietary fiber. If you’re using Herbalife to gain weight or as a hefty meal replacement, due to the lean caloric intake, this may not be the right product for you.  

Herbalife also contains a large amount of controversial and artificial ingredients such as soy protein isolate, soy lecithin, and two types of molds including aspergillus niger and aspergillus oryzae. 

Taste 

Although it may lack nutritionally, Herbalife makes up for this with its above par taste.  Due to the amount of stevia used, Herbalife powder doesn’t contain that strong plant-like taste commonly found in other protein shakes.  

For those who don’t enjoy the taste of stevia, Herbalife’s flavor is mellow enough that you can easily conceal it with add-ons like fruit, honey, extra milk, and so forth. Many customers report even liking the natural taste of the smoothie powder alone, which is an incredible feat that most other protein shakes can’t say.  

Price 

The price is another feature that sets Herbalife above its competitors. Herbalife provides nutrition at an incredibly reasonable rate. While prices can fluctuate depending on where you purchase the powder, on average the price comes in around $40 per container or $1.51 per ounce. This is far below the average market price, and some containers cost more than double the amount of Herbalife.  

What People Are Saying 

Most customers report being very happy with this product. Customers especially like that they can see the benefits and progress of their weight loss journey. Some people report losing several pounds within the first few weeks of using Herbalife. Other people report saying that they feel good while using this product and that they have more energy.  

Conclusion  

Herbalife tastes good and helps people achieve their weight loss goals. However, there are a lot of questionable ingredients used in the Herbalife protein powder. Additionally, this protein shake isn’t as nutrient-dense as other similar products on the market.  

If you’re looking for a hearty meal replacement that’s a little more long-term, this may not be the right product for you. On the other hand, if you’re looking for short-term help for your weight loss journey, Herbalife could be the product for you.
