Wondering which of our many supplements can support your weight loss journey as part of a complementary and integrative health plan? Before you dive into research on dietary supplements and get lost among the product labels and potential benefits of various active ingredients, check out our top tips below!

Shape Shake 2.0 – Meal Replacement for Weight Loss*

Losing weight sounds easy in theory: Weight loss occurs when you eat fewer calories than your body burns, regardless of what you eat. You can create a calorie deficit by increasing the calories you burn through exercise, consuming fewer calories, or both.

Our Shape Shake 2.0 helps you achieve this deficit as part of your daily routine*. It’s not a snack; it’s a complete and full meal! One serving of Shape Shake 2.0 provides you with approximately 206 calories per serving and balanced macros of proteins, carbs, fiber, and fats. And that’s not all! It also provides you with 24 vitamins and minerals. Everything you need to make it easier to reach your goal faster.

Here’s how it works: Mix 350 ml of water with 6 tablespoons of Shape Shake 2.0 powder. Shake vigorously and enjoy instead of 1-2 meals per day*.

Glucomannan Capsules – Plant Powered Dietary Supplement

Glucomannan is a starch-like water-soluble dietary fiber, and the main part of the konjac plant. The plant’s starchy fiber is found in its root, where it’s extracted for use in various dietary supplements. Because glucomannan expands in your stomach, this dietary supplement can make you feel fuller longer and contribute to weight loss as part of a calorie-reduced diet**.

The path to your feel-good weight is less of a relaxing walk around the lake, and more of a trail run up and down a hill. One of the most important things along the way? A powerful team that keeps pushing you to do your best! Our Glucomannan Capsules dietary supplements are plant-based energy packs. And best of all: these dietary supplements contain no gelatin. We’re proud to say they are 100% vegan.

Here’s how it works: Take 2 capsules three times a day with food and enough liquid.

Daily Vitamins – Practical Vitamin Supplements

Are you in a calorie deficit or not managing to consistently eat a balanced diet? A vitamin dietary supplement can help your body meet its vitamin needs during stressful periods***. Your body usually gets these nutrients from food. Although they don’t have calories, they play an important role in your body’s health.

One serving size (2 caps) of our convenient Daily Vitamins covers 100% of your daily requirements for vitamin D, A, E, C, K, and the B vitamins 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, and 12. We use freshly harvested fruits and vegetables from Germany, process them as little as possible, and poof! We come out with top-notch Daily Vitamins dietary supplements, optimally balanced for your needs.

Here’s how it works: Take 2 capsules daily with enough fluids.

Want another upgrade to get into your best shape? Check out our Shape Pack Pro, featuring Shape Shake 2.0, Glucomannan Caps, and Daily Vitamins, plus Energy Aminos and L-Carnitine on top.

Energy Aminos – Your Pre-Workout Boost

Your alarm clock goes off and you feel more like hibernating than a sweaty workout? We’ve all been there! Pre-workout drinks not only give you everything you need to prep your muscles for your workout, but also an extra boost. It’s like drinkable motivation, so you can get up and go!

Caffeine, BCAAs, and added micronutrients: foodspring’s Energy Aminos provide you with an unbeatable power combo of caffeine and simple carbs for that kick you want right before your workout. BCAAs are some of the essential amino acids your muscles need, while the micronutrients get your immune system and metabolism going. Stumbling into your morning workout half-asleep is a thing of the past****!

Here’s how it works: Dissolve 20g of Energy Aminos powder (1 scoop) in at least 400ml of water. Drink 20 minutes before your workout.


*Weight reduction with Shape Shake 2.0: Replacing two meals a day with one Shape Shake 2.0 each contributes to weight reduction as part of a low-calorie nutrition plan. Replacing one meal helps maintain weight. But they can only serve their intended purpose as part of a low-calorie plan that also includes other foods. Be sure to drink enough fluids every day and have a varied and balanced nutrition plan as part of a complementary and integrative health approach.

**The dietary supplement glucomannan contributes to weight loss as part of a low-calorie nutrition plan. Your nutrition plan should include a daily intake of 3g glucomannan in three portions of 1g each, taken with 1-2 glasses of water, before meals, and in the context of a low-calorie nutrition plan. Be aware that there is a risk of choking for people with difficulties swallowing or when these dietary supplements are not taken with enough fluids. Take them with plenty of water to make sure they reach your stomach.

*** Note: Vitamin needs are unique for each individual. Before starting any new nutrition plan, it’s always a good idea to ask your healthcare provider for a micronutrient check-up. If any deficiencies, health conditions, or absorption disorders come up, targeted use of dietary supplements may be important.

**** Vitamin C supports the normal function of the immune system and vitamin C, B3, and B12 all contribute to a normal energy metabolism, while vitamin C and B3 help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
