Herbal Essence?
The inside track on the company's earnings, with Michael Johnson, Herbalife chairman/CEO.

Should sky-high oil prices crimp the U.S. economy, Cramer said Wednesday Herbalife's business model should still work.

A network marketing company , it sells nutritional supplements and weight management products. After reporting a standout quarter on Tuesday, its stock has soared. It's now up 88 percent since Cramer first interviewed its CEO on Nov. 2009 at $40.90 a share.

Cramer thinks Herbalife's stock will continue to climb for several reasons. Not only it is a plan on combating obesity, it gives you exposure to the aging population, who now need nutritional supplements. But to learn more about what's ahead for this company, Cramer invited CEO Michael Johnson back on "Mad Money." Watch the video to see the full interview.
