A clinically-documented probiotic + prebiotic for weight management

In a study published in EBioMedicine, compared to placebo, HOWARU® Shape (10B CFU B. lactis B420 alone or in combination with 12g of prebiotic fiber Litesse® Ultra polydextrose) controlled body fat mass, trunk fat mass, waist circumference, and reduced energy intake in overweight adults*.

The six month gold-standard study conducted at four leading research centers demonstrated that both the probiotic alone and probiotic in combination with the prebiotic fiber Litesse® Ultra have strong weight management benefits. These impressive results were obtained with no change to participants’ diet or exercise habits.
