EXHIBIT 4.1

DESCRIPTION OF THE REGISTRANT’S SECURITIES
REGISTERED PURSUANT TO SECTION 12 OF THE SECURITIES
EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934

Nature’s Sunshine Products, Inc. (“Nature’s Sunshine,” “the Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) has one class of securities registered under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended: our common stock.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

The following summary of the terms of our capital stock is based upon our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (the “Articles of Incorporation”) and our Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”). The summary is not complete, and is qualified by reference to our Articles of Incorporation and our Bylaws, which are filed as exhibits to this Annual Report on Form 10-K and are incorporated by reference herein. We encourage you to read our Articles of Incorporation, our Bylaws and the applicable provisions of the Utah Revised Business Corporation Act for additional information.

Authorized Shares of Capital Stock

Our authorized capital stock consists of 50,000,000 shares of common stock, no par value, and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, no par value. As of February 26, 2021, there were 19,795,732 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding and no shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding. The outstanding shares of our common stock are duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid, and non-assessable.

Listing

Our common stock is listed and principally traded on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “NATR”.

Voting Rights

Each holder of shares of our common stock is entitled to one (1) vote for each share held of record by such holder on the applicable record date on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders of common stock. The holders of common stock do not have cumulative voting rights.

Dividend Rights

The holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends from funds legally available therefor, when and if declared, on such conditions and at such times as the Board of Directors may designate, provided, however, that no dividends shall be made with respect to the common stock until any preferential dividends required to be paid or set apart for any shares of preferred stock have been paid or set apart.

Rights upon Liquidation

Subject to any prior or superior rights of liquidation as may be conferred upon any preferred stock, and after payment or provision for payment of the debts and other liabilities of the Company, upon any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company, the holders of common stock then outstanding shall be entitled to receive all of the assets and funds of the Company remaining and available for distribution. Such assets and funds shall be divided among and paid to the holders of common stock, on a pro-rata basis, according to the number of shares of common stock held by them.







Other Rights and Preferences

Our Articles of Incorporation provide that no holder of shares of the Company of any class now or hereafter authorized, as holders of such shares, shall have any preferential or preemptive right to subscribe for, purchase or receive any shares of the Company of any class, now or hereafter authorized, or any options or warrants for such shares, or any rights to subscribe to or purchase such shares or any securities convertible into or exchangeable for such shares, which may at any time be issued, sold or offered for sale by the Company.

Fosun Preemptive Rights

Pursuant to that certain Stockholder Agreement dated June 26, 2014 between the Company and Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical (Group) Co., Ltd. ("Fosun"), Fosun has the right to purchase its pro rata share of any equity securities offered for sale by the Company, subject to certain limited exceptions. Fosun's pro rata share is based on the ratio that the number of shares of common stock held by Fosun bears to the total number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately prior to such offering.

Transfer Agent and Registrar

American Stock Transfer & Trust Company is the transfer agent and registrar for our common stock.

Certain Anti-Takeover Effects

Certain provisions of our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws may be deemed to have an anti-takeover effect.

Advance Notice Requirements for Shareholder Proposals and Director Nominations. Our Bylaws provide advance notice procedures for shareholders seeking to bring business before our annual meeting of shareholders or to nominate candidates for election as directors at our annual meeting of shareholders and specify certain requirements regarding the form and content of a shareholder’s notice. These provisions might preclude our shareholders from bringing matters before our annual meeting of shareholders or from making nominations for directors at our annual meeting of shareholders if the proper procedures are not followed.

Additional Authorized Shares of Capital Stock. The additional shares of authorized common stock and preferred stock available for issuance under our Articles of Incorporation, could be issued at such times, under such circumstances and with such terms and conditions as to impede a change in control.

Issuance of Undesignated Preferred Stock. Our board of directors has the authority, without further action by the shareholders, to issue shares of undesignated preferred stock with rights and preferences, including voting rights, designated from time to time by our board of directors. The existence of authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock would enable our board of directors to render more difficult or to discourage an attempt to obtain control of us by means of a merger, tender offer, proxy contest or other means.

Limitations on Stockholder Ability to Act by Written Consent or Call Special Meetings. The Articles of Incorporation eliminate the right of shareholders to act by written consent without a meeting. Further, the Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation provide that special meetings of shareholders may be called only by the Board of Directors acting pursuant to a resolution adopted by a majority of the Board of Directors or by the Secretary, following his or her receipt of one or more written demands to call a special meeting from shareholders of record who hold, in the aggregate, at least ten percent (10%) of the voting power of the outstanding shares of the corporation.

Classified Board. The Company’s board of directors is divided into three classes. The directors in each class serve for a three-year term, one class being elected each year by the Company’s shareholders, with staggered three-year terms. Only one class of directors will be elected at each annual meeting of the Company’s shareholders, with the other classes continuing for the remainder of their respective three-year terms.
