Herbalife is a global nutrition company that promotes healthy lifestyles in people by selling science-backed products that help people get the right balance of healthy nutrition, according to company.herbalife.com.

Brad said he used to work in the oil industry and did not have a healthy diet while on the job, which mostly consisted of fast foods and energy drinks. After Kay convinced him to try Herbalife, he said he has been hooked since.

But what got me was we did a health evaluation and she showed me my metabolic ageI basically had the body of a 60-year-old in a 35-year-old body, he said. But thats what spurred me. Thats what made me want to start feeling better, eating better. I cant eat McDonalds anymore. I used to eat there two or three times a week.

Wild Turtle sells Herbalife shakes, teas and other products; provides health and wellness evaluations; and promotes ways for people to live healthy.

Were here trying to help people be healthy, Kay said. We will do health evaluations. We do measurements. We will weigh you. Well help you with meal planningthat way that person has options, especially if they dont like certain things or they dont eat certain things. It doesnt even have to involve our products. Yes, we would love for them to use our products, but we would rather them go home and be able to be healthy than not to be healthy. So its really what were doing this for.

Their biggest sellers are energy teas of multiple flavors and meal replacement shakes.

The teas are mixtures of green and black teas, flavors and natural sweeteners.

For example, the Aquaman tea is a green and black tea known to be thermo-genic by raising a persons core temperature to help them burn calories, Brad said.

The tea itself might have 20 calories, but youre going to burn close to 80 just by drinking it. It also depends on how active you are as well, he said.

The meal replacement shakes, not meant to totally replace food, have at least 200 calories, 24 grams of proteins and 21 vitamins and minerals. Most of the shakes they offer, except two, are gluten-free and plant-based.

Youre going to get close to half of your daily-required vitamins and minerals in one shake, Kay said. If youre very deficient on a lot of things, just adding one shake to your dietits going to help out a lot.

The teas and shakes can also have add-ins such as caffeine, pre-workouts and fight fighters as well as multivitamins and protein bars. A basic tea is $3.50 and a basic shake is $7.50, before add-ins.

The Terrapins said a goal is to work more with the tribe in the future and promote healthy living through different programs.

Honestly, our business is 90 to 95 percent Cherokee Nation, she said. Were blessed. They have blessed us so much being out here. Weve made a lot of great friends, people that come and see us daily. We know them by first names. We genuinely care about our customers. Theyre no longer our customers; theyre our friends and family.

Wild Turtle is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Its located at 17632 Muskogee Ave.
