This description sounds pretty much the effects of an ordinary cup of tea, so is there anything in this supplement that makes it worth trying? We take an in depth look at Herbalife Total Control to find out.
Herbalife Total Control is a straightforward looking supplement that contains just various tea types as well as ginger and pomegranate rind extract. All these ingredients are known for health benefits but the precise quantities are unknown so may not match research carried out on the ingredients. It may not actually do anything at all. That said, some people seem to like this supplement so it looks like one of the better offerings from Herbalife.
Herbalife looks safe but it may cause side effects in some people. These are mainly related to caffeine and may include jitteriness, anxiety and sleep disturbances.
Other side effects may include heartburn, diarrhoea or stomach discomfort.
Some people are allergic to pomegranate. Allergic reactions may include itchiness, difficulty in breathing, runny nose or swelling.
Herbalife Total Control is expensive. The set price from a Herbalife distributor is $40.10 for a bottle of 90 capsules (1 month’s supply). However, some distributors offer a discounted price and we have seen it on sale for as little as $33.00.
You can also find Herbalife Total Control on sale at Amazon USA for $38.75, which looks like the easiest option.
We are not very impressed by Herbalife Total Control. We all love tea, but in our opinion this supplement is massively overpriced. There is no real reason why what is essentially a tea and caffeine pill should cost $40.10 a month and in our opinion, you would get better support for energy and weight loss simply by drinking more tea.
In addition, Herbalife Total Control can be a rigmarole to buy if you go through a distributor because you will undoubtedly be urged to buy additional products.
Overall, we do not recommend Herbalife Total Control.

Herbalife Total Control is a supplement that the advertising claims will perk you up and enhance your energy as well as increase the speed of your metabolism. The thinking is that this will help weight loss because you will burn off extra calories by moving around more. In addition your metabolism will be working more effiiciently also helping weight loss.
Herbalife Total Control is a simple looking supplement. It contains just various types of tea, more specifically green tea extract, oolong tea extract and black tea. Tea – especially green tea – is a powerful source of antioxidants and there is evidence that green tea can help the body go into fat burning mode.
All teas come from the same plant, Camellia Sinsensis, but differ due to the manufacture process. Green tea is less processed (unfermented) so retains more nutrients and antioxidants making it better for health and weight loss. Black tea, the type of tea most commonly drunk in the West, has lost many of these benefits during the drying process but is still good for health.
Thanks to the teas, the caffeine content of each capsule is 82mg, so is roughly the same as an average cup of instant coffee.
The supplement also contains ginger root powder and pomegranate rind extract. Ginger root is well known for its various medicinal properties although its proven effects are mostly related to preventing nausea and sickness. Pomegranate rind extract is rich in antioxidants and has been linked to improving heart health.
Take 1 capsule 3 times a day.
Although we quite like the look of Herbalife Total Control, we are not as impressed with Herbalife.
Herbalife Total Control is just one supplement on sale from this major MLM company. Herbalife was founded in 1980 and today has a revenue of close to $4 billion. It is sold via a network of ordinary people working as distributors worldwide.
Thousands of people work as distributors for the company – attempting to generate an income from selling Herbalife products. You can sign up for the company yourself and get discounts on products which you then theoretically re sell for a profit and many people have answered the call in the hope they can build a home business with some extra income. The problem is that there is very little reason why anyone should bother actually buying supplements for the full price when anyone can become a distributor and also get the discounted price.
Herbalife has been under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission for the last two years on charges that it is an illegal pyramid scam rather than a legitimate business. According to business experts, Herbalife is a pyramid selling scheme, “causing enormous harm” to the people who sign up as sellers for the company.
We carried out an investigation into Herbalife and were very concerned about the lack of quality of some of the supplements as well as the business plan.
According to the product information, there are three key benefits to Total Control:
This is further explained in the brief overview,
Total Control® tablets contain a proprietary blend of tea extracts and caffeine which quickly stimulates metabolism and provides an energetic and alert feeling.
It may help a bit. The caffeine/green tea combination has been studied and it can increase fat oxidation during moderate-intensity exercise. However, this effect may not work on everyone. The efficacy may be impaired if you are already an habitual coffee or tea drinker, and effects will vary from person to person. One problem with caffeine for weight loss is that the effects will wear off once you become accustomed to it.
The ingredients contained in Herbalife Total Control come under a proprietary blend, so we cannot provide a full ingredients profile because the individual amounts are unknown. However, the product information states that each capsule contains 82mg of caffeine derived from the teas. Serving size is equal to one capsule.
Proprietary blend (353mg)
Herbalife Total Control looks pretty safe for most people but may cause the following side effects. Many of these are related to caffeine and may include;
Other side effects may include;
Some people are allergic to pomegranate. Although this is rare, symptoms may include;
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor first if you have an underlying health condition or are taking prescription medication in case of interactions.
There are plenty of customer reviews for Herbalife Total Control and many of these are positive. Of course, with any MLM company, distributors are always quick to jump in and post positive reviews. So we took a look at the reviews only posted from people who had actually bought the supplement and seemed like genuine customers.
There are many positive comments. Many of these relate to the energy boosting aspect of the supplement,
Totally keeps my hunger at bay and gives a little boost of energy as well…
Very satisfied. Gave me great energy during my 8hr shift.
Nice boost of energy. Cleaner than coffee.
Not everyone is as pleased,
It didn’t do anything for me. Just could not sleep at night.
It’s just caffeine???? I’m a little disappointed. I was expecting more given all the hype about Herbalife.
A little bit of energy, but didn’t see much of a difference in appetite
