James said "Using the Herbalife24 range was a fantastic aid in training and competing in this event, I found the Herbalife 24 Formula 1 Sport and particularly the Herbalife24 Rebuild Endurance a massive help. I found my ability to train longer and harder was increased and my recovery after each session was vastly improved. I would recommend the entire product range but especially these two products."
