LOS ANGELES, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), a leading global nutrition company, announced that today six independent Herbalife Members from Florida are traveling to Washington, D.C. in support of Herbalife and the value it has brought to Members, consumers and communities for over 34 years.
These six independent Members will represent members from across the state. In Florida alone there are more than 54,480 independent Herbalife Members.
It's the first time Members from Florida bring a clear message to Capitol Hill about the opportunity and integrity behind Herbalife's products:
- Herbalife is a company built on great products. Herbalife has been making nutritional products for nearly 35 years developed by expert scientists and nutritionists using quality ingredients and produced in facilities with industry-leading quality controls. Nearly three-quarters of Members join Herbalife to use its products for their own consumption and a quarter of Members are so passionate about Herbalife that they have chosen to sell the products.
- With hard work and dedication, Herbalife can lead to real business opportunities and a healthier life. People chose to sell Herbalife products because the company offers an equal and accessible economic opportunity, world-class products, and the opportunity to connect with a community of like-minded people.
- Herbalife has the best consumer protections in the direct selling industry. The company's 'Gold Standard' Member protections include low start-up costs with no minimum product purchase requirements and a 100% money-back guarantee, including shipping costs.
- Herbalife is an active and engaged corporate citizen. Herbalife has a demonstrated commitment to advancing the well-being of the residents and communities in which it operates.
Andres Mejia, a Herbalife Member from Miami, Florida said "As I look across my community, I see that a healthy active lifestyle is something we all need to do a better job of embracing. Herbalife provides a roadmap to success so that an individual can achieve their fitness goals one step at a time. The goal of Herbalife is to motivate people to be the best they can be and I am proud to be a part of that."
