Product Highlight – Formula 3 Cell Activator

The Cell Activator, in my opinion, is one of the most important supplements in the entire Herbalife line of products.  What it does is help support the body’s absorption of micronutrients and promote cellular production.  The cell activator does contain aloe which assists with absorption, and it contains select botanicals, nutrients, and antioxidants to support healthy aging.

The key ingredients are pycnogenal, which helps cells optimize the use of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and proteins, and an alpha-lipoid acid which is an antioxidant known to combat the effects of oxidative damage done by free radicals.  Dr. David Heber, MD chairman of Herbalife Nutrition and Scientific Advisory Boards, reports that the Cell Activator is “cellular-preserving cellular function”.  The alpha-lipoid acid supports the integrity of the mitochondrial membrane, which is the “powerhouse of the cell and produces energy”.  The cell activator also contain magnesium and potassium.

Herbalife is all about Cellular Nutrition.  Basically the belief is that inactivity directly correlates to weight gain  When one is trying to diet and lose weight, they cut their calories and therefore have no fuel for energy.  The cell activator provides energy by allowing the body to absorb proper nutrition  If the body can efficiently absorb proper nutrition, energy levels will increase, activity levels will increase and the result will be a loss of unnecessary weight.

The Cell Activator is NOT a stand alone product.  It was designed specially to work with the Formula 1 Shake and the Formula 2 Multivitamin.   It is to be taken twice a day with either a meal or your Formula 1 shake.  I personally take one with my breakfast and one with my dinner.

Week 4: Staying the Course

Moving up the marketing plan and making it to President’s team is the ultimate goal for those working the business.  The business of Herbalife is unique.  Yes, it is a multi-level marketing company, but it is so much more than just signing people up. Herbalife products really do help people live a much healthier life.  There is something for everyone.  Our motto at our nutrition club, N2 Nutrition, is “offering nutrition from the nursery to the nursing home and all athletes in between”.   Herbalife is truly one of the best nutrition companies out there and this company was built upon are integrity, helping others, and simply having fun.  This business is FUN!!!  What is great about being an independent distributor is that you have the freedom to be your own boss.  Sometimes, people within your organization hit a plateau or have a hard time staying focused.  As their mentor, there are many ways to help them stay the course and stay motivated.

Sharing your story and your results are the key to your success in selling the products.  I can not stress enough how important it is to get your results first. Make sure your team is still on the product and continuing to get results. The best way to share these products is to talk from the heart.

Use, Talk, Wear!

Now that you are successfully building an organization, it is up to you to keep your momentum going.  There are ways to keep yourself and your team motivated.  Keep doing the 2-4-1, but encourage your team to do more. Run a promotion.  Set a goal for your team and reward those who obtain it.  It can be as simple as getting a special t-shirt for those who get 2500 volume points in 1 month or as extravagant as throwing an exclusive party for those getting 10,000 volume points in 1 month.  It is totally up to you, so be creative. It can be as small or as big as you want it to be.  Herbalife is constantly running promotions for all distributors.  There are vacations, experiences, and cool items; just another way Herbalife gives back to its distributors.

So keep it simple, keep it fun, and stay the course!

Week 3: Getting to Supervisor using the 2-4-1

There are a few different ways to become a Supervisor.  Supervisor is when you are at 50% discount and is truly to gateway to the marketing plan.  Not only do you receive all of your products at a 50% discount, but you make 50% profit on all retail sales.  Your goal should be to coach your team to become supervisors as well. 


How to become a supervisor???  You can put in a supervisor order, which is 4000 volume points – this can be expensive.  You can also become a supervisor by accumulating 5000 volume points over the course of 1 year.  I believe in trying to build your business and your team and setting yourselves up for success.  You do this using the 2-4-1.


As you go into your second month, you simply repeat what you did the first month. 

Find 2 new Distributors

Find 4 new Customers

Go to 1 training 

(Tip = Get your entire organization to the training!)


You do another 500 volume points this month; you should now have 8 distributors in your organization who each do 500 volume points.  This gives you 4,500 Total Volume and hello Supervisor!!! 


You will finish the month at 42% discount and begin receiving your 50% discount, as you become an Active Supervisor at the beginning of the following month.  Your approximate retail profit from you customers should be around $1500.00, give or take.   The more effort you put in, the more profitable you will be. Coach your team to duplicate what you have done, and your organization will be growing quickly!

Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix

The Healthy Meal shake is probably the most highlighted product within the entire Herbalife product catalog.  It is part of the core program that truly helps people achieve the results they desire.  The Formula 1 Nutritional Shake is currently offered in 7 flavors.  There are 6 permanent flavors and 1 seasonal flavor.
1. Vanilla
2. Dutch Chocolate
3. Wild Berry
4. Cookies and Cream
5. Cafe Latte
6. Pina Colada
7. Mint Chocolate Chip (seasonal special)

Past seasonal flavors have included, Orange Creme, Pumpkin, and Dulce de Leche.   The Vanilla and Pina Colada are both certified Gluten Free as well as the Allergen Free – that will be discussed in a future blog.

Each shake mix comes in a powder form and contains 9 grams of soy protein.  Studies that have shown diets that are low in fat and cholesterol and that include a daily intake of 25 grams of soy protein have been know to reduce heart disease.  The shake has the Heart Smart stamp on every canister.  The 20 vitamins and 10 minerals, including Vitamins C and E, help support metabolism, cellular growth and repair production.  There is enough antioxidant power in each shake that is equivalent to 2 servings fruit and vegetables.  Each shake has 9 grams of fructose sugar (equivalent to that of an apple) and 13 carbohydrates.

The shakes are simple to make too!  Simply mix 2 heaping scoops with 8 oz of nonfat milk or soy milk.  Add ice for more of a milkshake texture and feel free to add frozen fruit into the mix.  Another option is to mix 2 scoops of the Formula 1 with 1 or 2 scoops of the Protein Drink Mix.  If you choose to go this route (which most of us do) mix it with water and ice.

Not only is this a nutritional meal replacement that will help you with weight management, increased energy, and overall health, but the shakes are delicious as well!   Below is one of my favorite shake recipes…

Blueberry Blast:
2 Scoops of Formula 1 Vanilla Healthy Meal
1 or 2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Drink Mix
1/3 cup of frozen blueberries

Week 2: Getting Started on the 2-4-1

Each new distributor begins with a 25% discount.  The goal is to move up the marketing plan and receive a larger discount as soon as possible.   


The next level in the marketing plan is a Senior Consultant, which receives a 35% discount.    There are 2 ways to achieve this goal.  The first is by placing a 1 time 500 volume point order – this will immediately boost you up to the 35% (of which you will receive on that 500vp order), and the second way is by accumulating 500 volume points in 1 month at 25%.   Go to your first Success Training Seminar (STS).  Herbalife provides monthly training – usually the 3rd Saturday in each month.  Check on under events to find dates in your area.


Now the 2 in 2-4-1!  Sponsor 2 new distributors and coach them to do the exact same thing you did.  Get each of them to VIP 500 in the first month. 


Tip:  Get your 2 new distributors to next STS.


For those who just put in a 500vp order – what do you do with all of that product???   Use it….to continue to get your results!  Sample or Share it!

Sell it…Can you get 4 customers who will buy it from you.  That is where the 4 in 2-4-1 comes into play.  Coach your 2 new distributors to do the same thing.


2 Distributors – 4 Customers – 1 Training

Herbal Tea Concentrate


The Herbalife Herbal Tea Concentrate is one of the key products to weight management.  The tea will help burn fat, enhance your metabolism, boost energy, improve circulation, and provide you with antioxidants.  The tea can be enjoyed throughout the day for a natural energy life.  The thermogenic (metabolism boosting) and antioxidants provided from the green tea make this product a key factor in weight management programs.  Enjoy up to 4 servings a day.




One half of a teaspoon is 1 serving that can be served hot or cold in 8 fl oz of water.  Each serving is 5 calories, and with the thermogenic properties in the tea, can help burn up to 70 calories.   It comes in a powder form and each bottle contains approximately 60 servings.




The key is in the tea!!




There are 5 fast acting natural botanicals in the tea.




  1. Green Tea Extract – known to be an antioxidant and anti-cancer.  It’s 100 times more effective than Vitamin C and 25 times better than Vitamin E.  It contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which shuts down an enzyme cancer cells depend on in order to thrive.  EGCE also helps relieve allergy symptoms and relax the bronchial tubes – which helps those who suffer from asthma.  Green tea has been known to help fight free radicals, boost memory and increase the metabolism.




  1.  Orange Pekoe Tea – Also contains antioxidant properties and supports the cardiovascular system.    This tea further enhances the benefits of the green tea and helps keep the vascular system healthy to bring proper nutrition to your heart and the rest of your body.




  1. Malva Sylvestris Extract – Also known as common mallow, assists in soothing the digestive system.  This extract is known to help draw out toxins and assists the body in cleansing itself.




  1. Cardamom Seed – Also full of antioxidants and helps with relieving inflammation in the throat.  Soothes a soar throat, hoarseness, or any type of throat disorder.  The cardamom seed is also beneficial to those suffering with respiratory allergies and gastric problems in the stomach




  1. Hibiscus Extract – known to assist in reducing blood pressure and helps remove excess water caused by bloating or retention.  The extract also helps in improving circulation.






The Herbal Tea Concentrate contains 85 mg of natural caffeine.  It comes is 4 different flavors, Peach, Raspberry, Lemon, or Original.  The tea should never be mixed with milk; the casein protein binds to the catechins and reduces the concentration and effectiveness of the catechins.
