Nutritional therapist Michelle Lake has previously been quoted as saying, according to The Sun: "There’s no doubt Herbalife is extremely well-marketed but I have concerns about who the distributors are.

“What is their training? Are they really qualified to be recommending nutritional supplements to the general public and what is their motivation?”

Herbalife said previously in a statement: "All our independent Herbalife Nutrition Members are independent business people and not employees of Herbalife Nutrition or paid ambassadors.

“They are compensated only when products are sold and never for the introduction or recruitment of new Members; as such they do not receive any salary or sponsorship fees.

"Every day millions of consumers safely use our products around the world and no known hepatotoxins have ever been found in our products.
