Q&A about Liftoff®

By David Heber, M.D., Ph.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.N.
Chairman of the Herbalife Nutrition and Scientific Advisory Boards

Below, Dr. David Heber answers questions about Liftoff®.

Q: Is the amount of caffeine in Liftoff® effervescent energy drink safe?
A: Liftoff® contains approximately 75 milligrams of caffeine, which is what is found in a cup of brewed coffee. In people who are sensitive to caffeine, this may cause a jittery feeling. Most people who try Liftoff® report more mental clarity without jitters.*

Q: Can Liftoff® effervescent energy drink be mixed with other caffeinated drinks, like tea?
A: The total amount of caffeine-containing drinks consumed should be less than three per day for most people, or approximately 240 milligrams of caffeine. If you combine Liftoff® effervescent energy drink with one or two cups of tea, there should be no problem unless you are sensitive to caffeine. If you notice any sweating or a rapid pulse, just cut back. Liftoff® can be mixed in cool water for refreshment on the go, or in hot water like a “tea.”

Q: What do the nutrients in Liftoff® effervescent energy drink do?
A: Liftoff® contains B vitamins, Vitamin C and taurine, which provide additional nutritional benefits in helping your body use nutrients more efficiently while also protecting the cells of your body.* As with all Herbalife products, Liftoff® provides Cellular Nutrition.
