Good Nutrition: Unfortunately the doctors here do not recommend or endorse any product. But, as a physician, speaking to a patient in india i feel obliged to tell you that buying such products is an extremely expensive and unnecessary situation. I have been to india. I know that good food with good nutrition is readily available. There is no magic that this unnecessary product would provide you over a good diet.

MANY: Herbalife is a multilevel marketing (mlm) company which makes all kinds of products. Many mlm companies charge higher "retail" prices for their products than for "members" (who are marketing the products). You could check out resources such as http://www.Iherb.Com/ and http://www.Vitacost.Com/ which offer quality, yet affordable nutrients. It's best to get nutrients from healthy food if you can!
