Further to our conversation at Herbalife and pregnancy

All Herbalife products are absolutely the best and they can promote a perfectly healthy body.

But pregnancy is an exception and when you pregnant you should read the information on the labels. Not every product can be used.

Herbalife F1 Nutritional shake, fiber, multivitamins, Herbalifeline can be used during pregnancy.

However I decline to use Aloe Vera, Rose-Ox, Xtra-cal, Tang Kuei.

  1. A woman should avoid herbs with the effect particularly affecting the uterine muscle, increasing blood circulation and over having a laxative effect.

  2. Another general principle is that no herb should not be used long term (longer than 14 days).

  3. Note also the various herbal compounds that are imported to us from abroad (eg.from Asia), which are largely unproven herbs that can have a negative impact on the healthy development of the fetus.

  4. Generally, a pregnant woman should avoid plants with a strong effect: Goldenseal, rosemary, marjoram, bearberry, basil, hyssop, wormwood, vervain and some other medical herbs (RN Dr.Peter Fort.
