Over 30 years ago, in 1980, Mark Hughes, founded a weight loss company called, you guessed it, Herbalife. It all started with a weight loss shake that Mark created after seeing his mother struggle with weight loss his entire life and eventually died from it. She actually became addicted to the weight loss pills she had been taking and eventually started using other pills that she, unfortunately overdosed on. He decided to make it easier and healthier for people to lose weight. Mark started by selling this weight loss shake out of the trunk of his car in Los Angeles, California.
That weight loss shake which is called Formula 1, is now the core product in Herbalife’s line of products. Herbalife actually now has several product lines for things such as weight loss, weight maintenance, weight gain, sports nutrition, healthy heart, digestive health, healthy aging, children’s nutrition, men and women’s nutrition, and skin and body care, just to name a few
Since Mark Hughes got it started, Herbalife has become the largest weight loss company in the world whose products are all natural. Just recently, in 2011 Herbalife surpassed the 5.4 billion dollars in sales mark. They continue to steadily and quickly grow and expect to be doing over 10 billion in sales by 2015.
Herbalife prides itself on its high-quality products and stringent product testing, to ensure that all products meet Herbalife’s high standards and are produced with only the best ingredients.
The company has a great track record for results. In fact, over 70,000 people recently have reported having great results by using the Herbalife products.
With the great products that Herbalife produces, it is no wonder it has 2.3 million distributors worldwide. The company also provides phenomenal training for its distributors so that they have all the tools that they need to be successful.
Along with these tools is a very generous compensation plan. This plan allows distributors to get a higher than most discount or profits on products right from the beginning but are able to move up to higher discount or profit levels quickly and easily, making it more of a motivation to move up in the marketing plan.
With these facts, it is easy to see that Herbalife strives not only to produce the best products and results for its clients but to give great opportunities to those who desire to be successful in their own business.
