Mark Hughes was the founder of Herbalife Nutrition in 1980. They specialize in nutrition supplements, weight management, sports nutrition, and personal care products. He lost his mother to an eating disorder and he began brainstorming an idea on how to curb this disease. Herbalife products include teas, protein shakes and bars, aloes, vitamins, sports hydration, and energy drinks. The first nutrition formula was a protein shake that was established in 1980 became the highest sale by 30% in 2015.

It’s no secret that there’s an obesity issue in America, an average of 39.6% of Americans are overweight. One reason for this is that people like the taste of food. If they have a nacho potato chip and the cheese melts in their mouth, they obviously aren’t going to stop at the serving size on the nutrition label. Some people may have a dull sense of taste, meaning that they will consume for salty and sugary foods to add flavor to their meals. This increases their health and risks their lives. Placing them at a higher risk for cancer, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. This can double if smoking is added to the mix.
