Each product is developed using the purest ingredients available and formulated to deliver easy-to-digest and optimized nutrition to the body. The mission of Herbalife Nutrition is to improve the nutritional habits of people around the globe through accessible, sustainable, and affordable products.

Herbalife Nutrition Club stores might not necessarily be visibly affiliated with Herbalife, but they use Herbalife Nutrition products in their menu items. Per the policies of Herbalife Nutrition Club, such stores are not franchises, restaurants, or retailers for Herbalife. These are operated by independent distributors who lease a space for customers and members to enjoy products and gather around nutrition, wellness, and fitness. For customers, this is a way to use or try Herbalife products without needing to buy full packages of products.
Certain Herbalife Nutrition Clubs also offer fitness classes to become complete health and fitness centers. Such clubs also provide social support, which is a key element in achieving and sustaining health and fitness goals. Social support, encouragement, and guidance can go a long way in helping people stay active and healthy. Nutrition Clubs bring people together and offer a support network and a sense of community. With over 75,000 nutrition clubs, around 70% of Herbalife Nutrition’s annual revenue comes from nutrition clubs around the world. In 2020, Herbalife Nutrition produced $5.5 billion in annual revenue.
According to The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), there is a clear correlation between income and a healthy lifestyle. A study by JAMA highlighted that the richest people in the U.S. tend to eat healthier food, exercise more, and enjoy access to better healthcare. Herbalife Nutrition Clubs are often opening in less affluent areas of the country, offering healthy food, social support, and access to the latest nutritional information to low-income communities. It is common for such low-income communities to have an abundance of fast-food restaurants in the region where they live. With Herbalife Nutrition Clubs opening in such areas, residents now have access to healthier alternatives.
With just a small membership fee, customers can enjoy healthy shakes, teas, coffees, and other products daily. Members also have access to fitness classes and other activities such as weight-loss challenges, fitness walks, and more. A key advantage for members of Herbalife Nutrition Clubs is they can get instructions and guidance on various nutrition, wellness, and fitness-related topics from the company’s experts: dietitians, doctors, and personal trainers. Some members of these clubs are so impressed with Herbalife Nutrition products and support that many become part-time distributors as well. With sales in over 90 countries, Herbalife Nutrition has a vast network of independent distributors.
