198 Herbalife Consumer Reviews and Complaints
It's been 1 year and I haven't used the products since. The advertisements direct viewers to a website that allows them to purchase a "success kit". The program helps you to lose weight without feeling hungry and tiredness. I will never ever do business with this company again. The man's urine had turned dark brown, he had hepatitis and had been feeling unwell for a couple of weeks. No one is skipping meals whatsoever.

Ackman claimed that Herbalife distributors "primarily obtain their monetary benefits from recruitment rather than the sale of goods and services to consumers.

Herbalife also hires independent, outside experts to ensure our operations are in full compliance with laws and regulations. Herbalife is not an illegal pyramid scheme.
Herbalife also countered that Ackman based his accusations on a misunderstanding of the company's distributor base. At an investor conference in January , the company released results of a Nielsen Research International survey showing 73 percent of Herbalife distributors never intended to make money by reselling the product.
