LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

has extended its official sponsorship of triathlon champion Heather
Jackson to keep her fueled and fast through 2016.
Jackson joins the ranks of elite athletes powered by Herbalife, which

worldwide. The Herbalife24™
products are part of a comprehensive performance line that offers a full
day of nutrition support - everything from pre-workout to recovery. The

"I am so grateful for the ongoing support from Herbalife. Their products
are exactly what I need as an endurance athlete - something for before,

takes the guess work out of my hydration, fueling and recovery, letting
me focus more on my training," said Jackson. "And to have a sponsor that
truly believes in you as an athlete and wants to do whatever they can to
help you reach your athletic goals is indescribable. Herbalife's support
over the past year has been an absolute game-changer to my triathlon
