HOWARU® Shape is the latest innovation in the premium line of DuPont HOWARU® probiotics. Each of the HOWARU® probiotics is clinically-proven and designed to help users live their best lives.
Tailor-made for people looking for a convenient weight management solution, HOWARU® Shape will help consumers control their body weight and shape.
In a study published in EBioMedicine, 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™ delivers strong weight management benefits. These impressive results were obtained with no change to participants’ diet or exercise habits.
Another recent study has found that dietary supplementation with the B420™ strain increases the relative abundance of Akkermansia muciniphila in the gut microbiota – a bacterium linked with improved metabolic health and anti-inflammatory properties.

In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight, and more than 600 million of those were classified as obese. Consumers continue to look for answers, as seen with the growth of weight management supplements to an over $5 billion industry.
This health and market trend is why we created HOWARU® Shape, a probiotic formula that’s clinically proven to keep your waist trim without requiring changes to diet or exercise.
