Herbalife Shake Reviews: An Honest Take

The following is a condensed version of Herbalife shake reviews. So, what’s all the hype about? Does it really work? Give me a little bit of your time and read on to find out more.

The Rundown

Herbalife is a tried and true company that sells products for weight loss, bulking up and for general health. The products contain- in general-  fiber, protein, minerals and some caffeine. The quick start program has four elements- Formulas 1,2, and 3 and the Herbal Tea Concentrate. Taking them all will achieve optimum results.

Herbalife started selling diet products in the 1980s and you are able to buy their products from their online store (you have to sign up for the website) or from a member. You can also go to a third party like Amazon if you want to search for a better deal. Herbalife has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau which is always a good sign and the length of time they’ve been in business speaks volumes about their product.

The Price

The major hang-up we had with Herbalife was the price. You cannot get the quick start program from the website so we had to search the web for individual products. It will be upwards of $100 each month and that’s just for starters. If you want to replace more than one meal with the powder, than the price doubles. The issue with Herbalife is the cost and it will cause many people to drop off from the program altogether. It can be a major roadblock for many dieters. Shakeology has a similar problem. There are shakes out there for a fraction of the cost. However, some people do feel that it is a bargain or at least worth the steep price tag.


The taste leaves much to be desired. There are even hundreds upon hundreds of reviews complaining about it online. A lot of people buy the who kit and caboodle only to not be able to make it past the first shake due to the poor taste. A lot of people likened the shake’s taste to chalk and many complained of the consistency, saying that blending won’t even get rid of it. However, once again, there are others who like the taste. Herbalife must be doing something right because they’ve been so successful for so long. It doesn’t seem as though taste has been such a huge roadblock for them.

The Science

There are no studies to back up Herbalife’s efficacy. The ingredients aren’t even listed on their website. The best you can get regarding whether or not Herbalife works is word of mouth and there is a lot of it. Herbalife sells their product using their customers. There are thousands of happy customers willing to pedal their products. They must be doing something right.

Does it work?

The company is tried and true; it has a great Better Business Bureau rating. They’ve been around a long time and seem to know what they’re doing. However, the really high price tag and even worse taste is a major issue for us. This leads us not to want to recommend Herbalife to our readers.There’s also no clinical studies to back it up which is very concerning. If the product worked so well, then put it in a scientific study! There are other, better products out there that are cheaper, better tasting, and are clinically backed. Also, Herbalife has very little options for vegans and those with gluten sensitivities. Their flavors, while extensive, still leave much to be desired. If you want to try Herbalife, find one of their members and get a few packets from them. This is a better option then buying a whole container for $40 just to find out you don’t like it or that it doesn’t work for you.Herbalife works on the premise that if you need one product, you are going to need the next and so on and so forth. The products just continue to get pricier. If you believe Herbalife’s fans, then yes the diet supplement works. However, there are no scientific studies to back it up and it might break the bank. Look for cheaper alternatives that will work better like IdealShake and Vega One.

We hope you enjoyed our honest Herbalife shake review. Enjoy your hunt for the perfect meal replacement!
