The information available at our fingertips can be overwhelming.  The general public and professionals in the fields of health and nutrition need more reliable information.


The Herbalife Nutrition Institute (HNI) was conceived in 2010 to promote knowledge on nutrition, exercise, behavior, and public health among physicians, nutritionists, and other professionals who need to understand these topics.  Its mission is to encourage and support education on the relationship between a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle and examines topics of interest in the field.  Its ultimate goal is to be a trusted, online source of science-based nutrition research, available to anyone interested in these topics.  For health and science professionals seeking more advanced analysis and resources, they can sign up for exclusive industry news or submit papers for consideration for publication to the HNI site.


Renowned experts, key opinion leaders, doctors and nurses, and researchers staff the Institute’s Editorial Board with expertise across the broad scope of health care disciplines, all of which have a connection with Herbalife Nutrition.  As chairman, I’m proud of our efforts to offer unbiased views on the latest advances and controversies in nutrition, and believe these debates are valuable in advancing the dynamic field of nutrition science.


We write, edit, analyze, and post noteworthy studies and summaries on fitness, public trends, and current science.  We translate complex concepts and findings into simple statements for quick consumption.  And we support conferences, panels, and exhibits at a wide range of scientific societies.


With rising levels of obesity around the world, the science of nutrition, fitness and overall health is as important as ever in order to better understand how we can effect real change.  And the experts that comprise the Herbalife Nutrition Institute are at the forefront of leading the charge and providing valuable insight and solutions to help us all lead healthier and happier lives.
