Herbalife Launches GLP-1 Nutrition Companion Product Combos Designed to Supplement the Nutrition Needs of Individuals Taking Weight-Loss Medications
Customized Product Combos to Support Long-Term Weight Loss with Balanced Nutrition Will Be Launched First in the United States and Puerto Rico
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Herbalife, a premier health and wellness company and community, announced today the launch of the Herbalife® GLP-1 Nutrition Companion, a new range of food and supplement product combos fueled by the #1 Protein Shake in the World* and intended to support the nutritional needs of individuals on GLP-1 and other weight-loss medications. Herbalife’s Classic and Vegan options are now available in the United States and Puerto Rico in a variety of flavors.
Recent research has shown that people taking GLP-1 weight-loss medications may experience decreases in muscle density and malnutrition. Herbalife is dedicated to addressing these nutritional deficiencies through the new combos that include nutrition products designed to deliver protein and fiber. Additionally, the Company’s independent distributors create a supportive community to help consumers develop proper nutrition habits while on weight-loss drugs and maintain those habits after the drug treatment ends.
“Weight-loss drugs curb your appetite, so people taking medications like GLP-1 Agonist may have difficulty getting all the macronutrients, micronutrients or physical activity they need for optimal muscular, cardiovascular and brain health,” said Kent Bradley, M.D., MBA, MPH, chief health and nutrition officer at Herbalife. “Individuals taking these medications should supplement with products that help meet these needs and focus on making foundational lifestyle changes to achieve sustainable weight loss.”
The Herbalife® GLP-1 Nutrition Companion includes:
Classic Product Combo
- Formula 1 Healthy Meal Nutritional Shake Mix (the #1 Protein Shake in the World*)
- Protein Drink Mix
- Active Fiber Complex
Vegan Product Combo
- HERBALIFE V Plant-Based Protein Shake
- HERBALIFE V Plant-Based Digestive Support†
- HERBALIFE V Plant-Based Greens Booster
Each product combo provides vital protein to help build muscle tissue and maintain lean muscle mass while providing energy and fiber to promote regularity and a healthy digestive system. Additionally, the Classic combo delivers essential vitamins and minerals to support overall health, while the Vegan combo also delivers three organic blends of 20 fruits and vegetables.
“Our independent Distributors help their customers meet their weight-loss goals and establish healthy habits with nutritious products, combined with coaching and a supportive community,” said Humbi Calleja, vice president and general manager of Herbalife, North America.
For more than 43 years, Herbalife has been supporting consumers in their commitment to embrace a healthier, more active lifestyle, including those on their weight-loss journey.
