Hello and welcome to the about page for nutritiongeeks.com. I’m Nathan and am the new owner of nutritiongeeks.com as of 9 May 2019. That being said, I’ve researched some of the past history of this site and found that customer service was not what it should be.

The old site was about nutritional supplements but was more e-commerce with little interaction with customers. I will ensure that changes as of now. Yes, we sell Herbalife nutritional supplements but there will also be content on this site. Furthermore, content that will be helpful to your health and even your bank account.

Who am I?

I am a 18-year active duty military member and pride myself on treating people with respect and like family. What I will be sharing here on nutritiongeeks.com will be from the heart. If someone contacts me they will be answered within 24 hours.

This website is devoted to assisting people all over the world to increase their knowledge about Herbalife In addition, it is a way to learn the importance of maintaining healthy levels of this master antioxidant.
