My daughter is overweight and wants to try Herbalife diet supplement, it contains soy (estrogen base) and I m worried this will mess with her hormones. She suffers from depression and is on Prozac, she took the birth control pill for a few months and it changed her personality to angry and short tempered so she came off it and a month later she felt like herself again. Can Herbalife shakes/diet supplements cause issues?
