Herbalife Side Effects You Should Know About gives all its customers a 90 day money-back guarantee so you can always return the product and get your money back if you are not 100% satisfied.

Just like any other product in the market, Herbalife is required by the USDA and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to list all the ingredients that are used in the manufacturing process of the product. The company also needs to list the manner in which each of the products should be used so that customers are completely aware of how use Herbalife products.

Herbalife has also released a number of clinical testing for their products stating that there's no direct side effects caused from the use of the products. In most cases, side effects reported following using Herbalife products are related to the detoxification & diet process, a sudden change in nutrition, dehydration or interaction with prescription drugs and allergies.

When starting to use Herbalife products, it is highly recommended to consult with a Herbalife authorized distributor about starting a slow, safe and personalized Herbalife diet plan.

Below are some of Herbalife’s side effects that have been reported by customers and the root cause of the same.


Caffeine is a stimulant and therefore is used in a fair number of energy boosting products from Herbalife. It is also an ingredient that helps in increasing metabolism levels and therefore used in some weight loss products. Sometimes caffeine may cause headaches, anxiety and hypertension too. This is something that is possible when caffeine is ingested in high amounts. To give you an idea of the amounts present in Herbalife products consider the fact that a standard cup of coffee contains about 85 grams of caffeine and a standard serving of any Herbalife product will deliver about 75 grams. So while the amount of caffeine is controlled, those allergic to the ingredient may need to watch what they are consuming.

Digestive Issues

Many people who start using Herbalife tend to stop it because of diarrhea, headaches and nausea. What they do not realize is that this is being caused due to the large number of toxins that are being eliminated. What you need to understand is that these symptoms are temporary and shall soon vanish as soon as the body gets used to a cleansed state. What you need to understand is that toxins and free radicals are covered with fat molecules. As the fat is burnt, the toxins are released into the blood stream from where they are eliminated. The entire process of removal of toxins takes about 2 weeks. This is the minimum amount of time that you need to give Herbalife products to settle down.


Bloating is another side effect that some people face. However, this is not a side effect that is common or caused due to Herbalife. It occurs due to the sudden change in dietary habits. What you need to do is to adjust the portion size in order to avoid the bloating feeling. Consume a healthy snack in between to avoid bloating and flatulence.

Swollen Legs

If you experience swollen legs, you should know that it is an allergic reaction to some ingredient in the Herbalife product that you are using. Check the label and see if there is a product that you are allergic to and check with your doctor immediately.

Allergic Reactions

Some of the common ingredients that are included in Herbalife products that can cause allergic reactions include shell fish, soy and caffeine. In case of any kind of allergic reaction from any Herbalife product, you need to consult a physician immediately. While an allergic reaction needs to be attended immediately, you may want to allow your sinuses some time to clear up. Since sinuses are made from soft tissue, they are almost always the first to react and get blocked. Give this issue a matter of three days and you should be in the clear.

Dry Mouth

While you may not be used to a dry mouth, this is another great symptoms that shows you that the product is working. A large number of detox products lead to a dry mouth so that intake of water is increased. This is something that aids in the process of toxin elimination. While it is the black or fruit tea that causes dryness, it can also be caused due to acid reflux from consuming some of the Herbalife shakes. This is because they contain psyllium husk and guar gum. If consumed in large quantities guar gum dehydrates the body leading to serious issues later. The good thing is that this ingredient is regulated. It can therefore only a small amount is allowed in supplements and food products.


Acidity is one of the side Herbalife effects that have been reported by users of Cell-U-Loss. So in case you are experiencing acidity and are using this product, you may want to discontinue it. This is because it contains apple cider vinegar, iron, vitamin C and herbs that are diuretic in nature like corn silk extract and couch grass.


Some kind of skin irritation and redness is the most common complaint that has been received about Herbalife. This again is a symptom that you will observe when the body is detoxifying. Redness, blotchy skin and itchiness are common. But it is important to realize that the skin is the largest organ and it takes time for it to throw away all the toxins that have been collecting there for ages. To expedite this process that would otherwise take around 2 weeks, exercise! The sweat can help in removing the toxins faster. Symptomatic relief can be sought with the Herbal Aloe Soothing Gel.


It is obvious that Herbalife side effects are either allergic in nature or they are caused due to the initial process of detoxification that starts in your body as you get started with Herbalife products. This is why it is a good idea to give the process at least 3 weeks before you can decide anything about the product.
