How Herbalife Shakes Can Help You Gain Weight

A large percentage of South Africans struggle with issues surrounding their weight gain, whether due to health conditions or a need to improve their self-esteem. People often forget, however, that being underweight can also lead to health problems and a knock to one’s confidence. For both women and men, it can be incredibly difficult to not just gain weight but do so in a way that is healthy and sustainable. Finding shakes to gain weight can be tricky too, as one really cannot be sure that what you are getting is value for money. Herbalife’s products, however, have been tried and tested, and the positive testimonials speak volumes.

The Risk of Being Underweight

Thankfully, we have come a long way from the idea that beauty needs to look like a reed-thin model, but some parts of society still glamorise looking starved. Those who fight an uphill battle to pick up a few kilograms, however, often feel self-conscious and as though they need to force-feed themselves just to get to a healthy BMI. Men, in particular, may feel embarrassed about not being able to bulk up or gain more muscle. Being underweight is also strongly linked to malnutrition, as the body simply does not have the nutritional reserves it requires to function. Some of the health risks of being underweight includes:

  • Malnourishment, deficiencies in minerals and vitamins, and anaemia.
  • Feeling tired or lethargic.
  • Conditions such as osteoporosis that stem from nutritional deficiencies.
  • A weakened immune system, getting ill quickly, or an inability to fight off infections.
  • A higher risk of complications from surgery.
  • Problems with fertility due to an irregular or absent menstrual cycle.
  • Developmental and physical delays in children who do not receive proper nutrition for their bodies and brains.

For some, investing in shakes to gain weight is the last resort, and people often seek out calorie-rich products that promise the world. Our Herbalife products are dynamic in that they can be used for both weight loss and gains, and adjusting your diet and workout plan accordingly is all it takes. For those looking to drop a few kilograms, our shakes, in particular, are a superb meal replacement – but anyone struggling with the opposite simply needs to add a shake as a supplement to an already balanced meal.
