Herbalife Products Associated To Fatal Acute Liver Failure In India In A Medical Report

According to a case study report published by medical staff in India with the title:

Slimming to the Death: Herbalife-Associated Fatal Acute Liver Failure—Heavy Metals, Toxic Compounds, Bacterial Contaminants and Psychotropic Agents in Products Sold in India

Herbalife is a global nutrition and weight management company selling and marketing nutritional and weight loss supplements.

Herbalife associated liver injury was reported from multiple countries in the West. India is fast becoming the largest growing market for Herbalife products, expected to surpass the United States in sales revenue.

We report the first case of a fatal acute liver failure from the Asia-Pacific region, in a young woman who consumed Herbalife products over 2 months.

We also present unsettling data that showcase heavy metal contamination, toxic compounds, psychotropic substances, and pathogenic bacterial contamination in similar Herbalife products in India. The growth of Herbalife in India and expansion of its nutrition clubs in major cities that promise fake health benefits portend a serious public health concern. ( J CLIN EXP HEPA- TOL 2019;9:268–272)

Herbal and dietary supplements (HDSs) are increas ingly used among the general population and remain a growing market globally. They can be procured without prescription and are generally consumed without specific medical advice and monitoring. Unlike standard prescription drugs, the safety and efficacy of HDSs are not well studied. The marketing of HDSs as food supplements surpass required preclinical and clinical testing in many countries.

Well-described large studies have shown that various HDSs are associated with severe liver injury.

Herbalife is a global nutrition, weight man- agement and direct selling company that develops, mar-kets and sells nutritional and weight loss supplements, sports nutrition and personal care products. Herbalife!- associated liver injury was initially reported from Israel, followed by Spain, Switzerland, Iceland, Argentina and the United States.

Recently, India has become the largest growing market for Herbalife products and is expected to surpass United States in sales revenue in the coming years. We report the first case of Herbalife associated fatal acute liver failure from the Asia–Pacific region in a young woman who consumed three products over a period of 2 months.

We also present unsettling data of comprehensive chemical analysis, toxicology and microbial contamination studies of similar Herbalife products retrieved from the patient’s original place of purchase (a nutritional club at Kottakal in Kerala) and those purchased online from different regions in India.

  7. Llevo 16 años tomando muchos suplementos Herbalife y cada dia estoy mejor y mejor.
    Tuve una embolia y se me diagnosticaron mas de 7 enfermedades autoinmunes con una medicacion muy fuerte (mas corticoides) y reposo y subi 30 kilos ademas de desarrollar Fibromialgia. Tengo 75% de discapacidad!! Y ahi me ofrecieron mejorar mis hábitos de vida (alimentos y ejercicio). Entre otros consejos acepte usar los suplementos Herbalife. Con un programa serio y un seguimiento semanal, bajé 30kg, mejoré los dolores, mi actitud cambio del dia a la noche! Sigo tomandolos para complementar mi nutricion, tengo 60 años y no me gustan los alimentos que provienen de animales en gral. Es muy facil que una persona OBESA durante MUCHOS AÑOS tenga el HÍGADO ENFERMO…entre otras consecuencias. Cuando empezamos un programa de nutricion Herbalife no pueden pedirlnos estudios medicos a las personas, ni que nos cuente sus problemas de salud. Lo UNICO que me pregunto a mi mi Asesor fue: SUS MÉDICOS LE HAN PROHIBIDO ALGÚN ALIMENTO??? UD ES ALÉRGICA O INTOLERANTE A ALGUN ALIMENTO?
    Si respondes que NO es porque puedes COMER HERBALIFE porque es COMIDA MAS RICA EN NUTRIENTES, BAJA EN GRASA Y CARBOHIDRATOS (Y CALORIAS) Y MUCHO MAS SEGURA Y FACIL DE PREPARAR QUE EXISTE!!!
    Y si esa persona por tomar SOLO 2 MESES UNOS BATIDOS MUY CO.PLETOS Y ALGUN OTRO SUPLEMENTO DE VITAMINAS O FIBRA O CALCIO….ETC ETC….ES IMPOSIBLE QUE DAÑE UN HÍGADO SANO!!!
    Eso hablamos con mi medico un año que salió la misma noticia en España…..es una NOTICIA FALSA PARA PERJUDICAR EL CRECIMIENTO DE LA FACTURACION DE HERBALIFE porque si mas gente esta SANA y en su PESO SALUDABLE…..menos van al médico, ni a operarse, ni a la farmacia, etc etc.
    Hay toda una INDUSTRIA DE LA OBESIDAD……y cuando sus beneficios bajan hay que usar los medios y los periodistas para lanzar un BULO. Lo triste es que la gente lo crea….y desista de buscar una solucion a su sobrepeso….y siga en ese CÍRCULO DE LA ENFERMEDAD!!
    MI CONSEJO: SI ALGUIEN LE QUIERE ROBAR SUS SUEÑOS (EN ESTE CASO SUEÑOS DE SER SALUDABLE Y FELIZ, PERO VALE PARA OTROS SUEÑOS TAMBIEN)…….NO LO PERMITA. AVERIGUE….LEA FUENTES SERIAS, PREGUNTE A OTRO MÉDICO, REVISE BIEN QUIEN LE DÁ ESA INFORMACIÓN Y CUALES PUEDEN SER SUS INTENCIONES Y SUS INTERESES. NO CREAN TODO LO QUE OIGAN……SEAN CAUTOS….SE MERECEN SER FELICES….TENER UNA VIDA ACTIVA Y SALUDABLE. SI SE PUEDE!!! SI PUEDES BUSCAR TU BIENESTAR!!! NO DEJES QUE NADA NI NADIE TE ROBE TUS SUEÑOS!!! (Frase de Jim Rhon)
