Let's take a look at the world-famous MLM brand HerbaLife and their product for weight loss, Formula 1. Everyone knows what HerbaLife is, but a famous brand does not guarantee the best quality.

This is a great shake for us to review because of its popularity. We created this website especially for people who wanted to compare the differences between weight-loss products independently from mere advertising.

The Formula 1 shake has a 25% soy base.

Herbalife Formula 1 Review


Major scientific have warned people about the possible danger of using soy products. Soy can cause different health problems such as: brain damage, breast cancer, pregnancy complications, kidney stones and more.

This shake has a good taste and low cost - at $35 for 30 servings, it's only $1.33 per shake. But it contains 9 grams of sugars and 135 milligrams of sodium. These are high amounts and certainly too high for a supposedly healthy meal replacement shake. Also, it only has 9 grams of protein, ideally there should be about 15 grams per serving.

Top Benefits:

Good taste, Low price

Negative:

Contains soy (Why is soy bad for you?) high sugars, high sodium, a low protein amount per serving, doesn't help against hunger, and it contains artificial flavors.

Formula 1 does not help against hunger and has artificial flavors. Furthermore, our team recommends you to use products with natural sweeteners only. For a similar price you can get something much better. It is a good example of how advertising can make a poor quality product a best-seller.

WLT Conclusion:

For a good price, you get a good taste product, but it has soy, high sugars, high sodium and low protein. Definitely, not the best choice for our readers.

I'm now almost 69. I fell for this stuff in the mid 80's. Never had even a hint of a kidney related problem. Seven months into the program, I began having very TINY grit - like things in my urine. Dr. called it the very OLD term of "the gravels" Well, within a few months the 'gravel' became BIGGER! I went through an IVP; many visits to the urologist; extreme pain from passing Kidney STONES. I finally told him bout the Herbalife. He told me very emphatically, "Do NOT take any more of that stuff. He could not prove it was the herbal life but the high incidences of kidney problems was no coincidence to him! The incidences went on into the late 80's. Please beware of this product!

I used Herbalife since it first came out in the70's. It didn't work then and it does' work now! Even though it's inexpensive, it's not worth it

I have been drinking the Formula 1 meal replacement for 2 months now. I use it for breakfast and dinner. I eat one meal a day about 2:00. I had gone on vacation for a week and could not stay on my shakes easy, so I expected to not loose as much. But all in all I am very pleased and happy with the Herbalife Formula 1 Healthy Meal Replacement. I would put a little low fat yogurt in one of the daily shakes and that made it more creamy. Thanks for your time. I am not one that usually leaves comments, but wanted to share my experience so far. Susan

After a year of using HerbaLife, I found out this contains soy! I can't believe I never noticed that before. I don't know if I'll keep using it since I don't really think soy is all that great. Thank you guys for a great product review!

The ingredients of this aren't that amazing, plus they use soy, which I'm skeptical of. I'd rather buy a more expensive product with natural, high-quality ingredients than use HerbaLife. And the taste wasn't good.

The HerbaLife shake is okay, but the vanilla is nothing to brag about. Too plain. I like adding half-and-half with Dutch chocolate. I like that it's cheap, that's a plus.

I dislike this formula in comparison to the shake mix for instant meals that you just add water to. This is okay but nothing out of the ordinary.

The taste isn't what I had hoped it'd be. The French vanilla flavor is the one I got. I'll try different flavors but I'm not sold on HerbaLife.

Tastes great but I had some minor stomach issues from this product. It's easy to mix things into it but the mild nausea isn't fun.

My brother used to be a salesman for HerbaLife and so I've tried all of their products. The shakes are really good, plus they're affordable. The vanilla flavor is my favorite. I have it for breakfast most days.
