Brief Answer:
no clinical trials done on this

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,

Congratulations on your pregnancy :) I am glad to hear it.

Herbalife Afresh is a herbal product. It contains natural anti-oxidant. However, the product is not studied clinically i.e. no clinical trials exist to ascertain the benefits of the same in pregnancy.

Hence, I would suggest you to avoid taking this. Drink a full glass of plain undiluted milk daily. It is a XXXXXXX source of calcium. You can also take a small cup of curd daily. This is also XXXXXXX in calcium.

Hope this helps you.

Take care!
