Shakeology Vs. Isagenix
By Kjersti Cote
Something you’ve been waiting for. That’s for your patience!
For the sake of time, I combed through Herbalife’s product line and selected just a few products that would somewhat compare to some of our products or seem to be a unique product for them.
The first product I always research are the shakes. It seems like everyone has a shake and you can learn a lot about a company just by their shake!
Herbalife has several different formulas of shakes all of which have denatured proteins, most of which contain soy protein, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners and none of them are a true meal replacement as they have too low in calories. Cost per serving? Cannot find cost for any product.
Herbalife must be known as the “soy company” along with Visalus as they even sell roasted soy nuts. Again, looking at their bars, soy protein peppered throughout, along with artificial sweeteners.
Their Herbalife24 Hydrate product is inferior to our Want More Energy, really not a comparison. Again cost?
In looking at product called Cell Activator, I’m not sure how much this product costs but this product isn’t worth anything. I tried to match it with one of ours that might be somewhat comparable- Ageless Actives- It doesn’t compare!!! In our Ageless Actives, we have 250mg of Resveratrol, Herbalife Cell Activator has .9mg (Yes, point nine milligrams). As a matter of fact, the Cell Activator only holds about 241mg of total nutrients, that’s still less than our Resveratrol alone.
Isagenix is far more superior in so many ways-

Last but not least, the comp plan difference-
Herbalife, along with New Skin and Amway, runs on a Stair Step Break Away.
Stair step break away-
- Pays by levels- 7 or 8
- Has ben around for 50 yrs.
- Accepted by regulatory agencies
- This plan helps the leader and discourages regular distributors and new beginners
- Complicated and difficult to explain
- Group volume breaks away
- Can have executive pass-by or rank pass-by, which means that your whole team can pass you and be placed above you, you losing that volume and pay, this is based on compression or (success)
- Leads to unhealthy competition and front end loading
- Limited levels, blocks income
