Almased’s story began more than 30 years ago in the quaint town of Bienenbüttel, Germany.

Holistic therapist Hubertus Trouillé was a man with a passion for holistic science. He was inspired by a dream to help his patients optimize their slow metabolism, combat diabetes and fight heart-related diseases (metabolic syndrome). 

An experienced flower wholesaler before his training to become a naturopath, Trouillé worked to formulate a product that would improve the body’s metabolic functions in a natural, healthy way.

The search was on for the best natural raw materials, such as non-GMO plant protein which packs a clean punch and is low in allergens.

Some raw milk protein was needed, but it also had to be low in milk sugar (hence the fully cultured yogurt). By adding raw unprocessed honey full of living enzymes – the dream began to show its true potential.


Together with his son André, Trouillé developed this mixture of nutrients based on soy, yogurt, and honey until he had perfected the unique fermentation process. After self-testing, he administered the mixture to his patients.

Surprising results

After using the product, his patients experienced a wide range of benefits from increased energy and a stronger immune system, to faster cell regeneration and many other positive effects - all due to an efficiently functioning metabolism.

Much to his surprise, Mr. Trouillé had not only developed a formula to support the metabolic function but an amazing product that supports easy weight loss.

Activating the metabolism in overweight patients automatically produced the reduction of unhealthy body fat. And from this, a star was born - The Almased Weight Loss Phenomenon™.

The greater challenge became the production procedures to keep the live enzymes in the raw honey and yogurt culture to stay active and full of vibrant health, while still within the container.


Almased's processing is very different from the standard methods used in the industry. This proprietary method is admittedly expensive, but as Andre Trouillé says, “that is what it takes to do the job while adhering to natural, holistic values.”

Did you know that even after the Almased canister is sealed, fermentation continues? This is how Almased remains an active, living food that supports the body in so many different ways.

German law only allows claims which have been scientifically proven. So, Almased’s first of many international university studies soon began.

The scientific study with Dr. Aloys Berg, University of Freiburg Medical School in Germany, was Almased’s first weight loss study. The results proudly showed:

  • Supporting healthy cholesterol levels
  • Balancing hormonal activity, such as leptin, ghrelin, and others
  • Lowering specific markers related to inflammation, like CRP (C-reactive protein). 
  • Improved fat burning

Results of the Almased group were much better compared to the control group, which was trained and well-monitored by a nutritionist for the German Olympic team.


Those results led to another study by Daniel König, M.D., University of Freiburg, Germany, who found that liver health can be improved within three weeks by using Almased.

Andre Trouille knew the value of their new product. Yet, he speaks of how he was at first surprised by the interest shown by doctors and universities all over the world. Still, positive results continued to bring attention. 

There were multi-international studies that followed, completed in India, Brazil, USA, Germany, and England. The results were amazingly successful showing improved blood sugar levels and insulin health. 

Some years later, Dr. Stephan Martin from Dusseldorf, Germany, twice presented Almased’s outstanding results supporting Almased’s positive effects on blood sugar management at the annual American Diabetes Association (ADA) conferences.

Dr. Martin also worked with Dr. Joachim Messing from Rutgers, on the specific DNA and amino acid profile of Almased and the raw materials. After the unique manufacturing process, the finished Almased product contained many metabolism-supporting bioactive peptides which were not present in the raw materials alone.


One more example is lunasin. Before processing, there is much less lunasin in the special “lunasin-rich" non-GMO soy powder. After Almased's particular fermentation method, there is a much higher lunasin content.

For 30 years Almased remains an innovative nutritional complex, supporting whole-body metabolism and brain function. It even leads to improvements in “hormonal steering” of the body’s biological systems.

Today, Almased has become Germany's most popular easy diet for weight loss. Many consumers speak of experiencing better quality of sleep, greater mental clarity, and improvement in their hair, skin, and nails.

All of these beneficial effects are called The Almased Weight Loss Phenomenon™ and have been tested and confirmed in many scientific studies at renowned universities. 

From Our Kitchen Table to the World

Hubertus Trouillé and his Almased product have come a long way since he first toiled at his kitchen table. He must have had a lot of foresight and determination. 


Trouillé created such a unique product and turned it into a family business which grew to become the bestselling weight-loss product in Germany. Almased is now considered the insider’s tip among experts for nutritional medicine and metabolism world wide. 

In their early days, Trouillé’s son, Andre, drove around their hometown in a van filled with cans of Almased, delivering to local shops and customers.

Today, Almased is still a family business, owned and operated by Trouille’s son, André, and his daughter, Ann-Kathrin. They have since expanded the Almased line into the United States, Canada, Austria, Switzerland, and parts of the United Kingdom.

Almased is still manufactured under the same process and value standards as when it was initially developed by Mr. Trouillé - with a vision to create a high-quality, natural product that helps people regain and preserve their highest level of health

Whether from a garage or a kitchen table, success is not really so much about one’s humble beginnings. It’s how you end up.

Weight loss can be really tricky, especially if your hunger hankerings outpace your nutritional needs.

How do hormone levels affect your appetite, and how does the hormone adiponectin affect weight loss?

According to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, it’s known that the hormone leptin can help with weight loss by reducing our appetite.

But another fat hormone, adiponectin, can stimulate weight loss by raising the metabolic rate without affecting appetite.

Adiponectin also has anti-inflammatory effects and has been shown to help reverse insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes). 

Just like leptin, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-ɑ), plaminogen-activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) and adipsin, adiponectin is also released by fat (adipose) tissue.

The body uses adiponectin to regulate the metabolism of sugar and fat, for both energy and weight loss. 

However, low levels of adiponectin are associated with obesity. Even though adiponectin is produced by fat cells, obese people generally have much lower levels of adiponectin than do lean people.

Adiponectin Function

Boost Your “I Feel Full” Hormones

Satiety hormones—hormones that tell our brain that we’re full—include insulin, adiponectin and leptin. 

How to increase adiponectin levels and enhance metabolism? Through improved nutrition.

The Rights Stuff? Switch to Whole Foods and Whole Grains.

The more you eat healthy foods, the more you come to enjoy them. 

Whenever possible, choose lean meats, fish, or plant sources for protein, lots of veggies, fiber and healthy fats, low-glycemic carbohydrates, and some complex carbs, too. 

Fiber alone reduces the glycemic impact of meals by stabilizing glucose levels and improving insulin sensitivity. Adding fiber to meals increases adiponectin levels by as much as 115 percent! 

Whole grains

Protein boosts hormones that work to burn fat and help control appetite by making us feel full. 

In addition, the building blocks of protein, essential amino acids, must be present in order for the body to absorb nutrients from food.

More on this on.

Avoid the wrong stuff. Read nutrition labels to make wise choices.

Limit your salt and sugar, skip deep-fried foods altogether, and kick the junk food habit. Cut out (or at least cut down) on processed foods. 

Timesavers like frozen veggies and dried or canned lentils and beans are fine. 

But watch out for those “convenience” foods and boxed meals that come loaded with trans fats, artificial ingredients, and hidden sources of sugar.

And Adiponectin-Boosting Supplement?

Recent research studies have shown one dietary supplement for weight loss and meal replacement—one with vital amino acids—can help the body ensure that we have enough adiponectin when we need it.

This is critical because if we are getting enough high-quality protein and amino acids through diet and supplementation, we decrease our hunger hormones and increase hormones that make us feel full.

Fortunately, we get the optimal protein support that we need with low-glycemic, high protein (LGHP) formula, known as the Almased Weight Loss Phenomenon™

Almased comes to us from Germany, where it was developed more than 30 years ago, and it supports burning more fat than other popular diets.

It is also scientifically proven that Almased supports healthy blood-sugar levels and appetite-regulating hormones.

One key to healthy weight loss is to ensure the hormones adiponectin and leptin are in balance. 

According to Dr. Charles Shively, Almased has a synergistic effect with the hormone leptin, which teaches the brain to "hunger relax."

Living the good life means savoring good food, and that all begins with  Almased. Almased’s formula is perfectly balanced, with 27 grams of essential amino acids to energize the body’s natural production of adiponectin and leptin in the body. 

Seriously – Almased has it all.

Slim down with Almased, but don’t give up taste!

You know it's essential to keep track of your newborn's weight for health reasons, and it’s just as important for new moms to keep tabs on their weight, too. 

If healthy eating habits were maintained during pregnancy, it wouldn't take long to drop those extra pounds after giving birth. By then, many new moms are strongly motivated to get out of their elastic-waistbands – fast!

But how to lose weight fast and safely?

Create a greener future for yourself and the environment. Aim for a full spectrum of rainbow smoothies made from fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, purple plums, leafy greens, orange carrots, white chia seeds, and red raspberries.

It sounds appealing, but is a smoothie healthy for breakfast?

Not all smoothies are equal and substance matters. Check out the protein, carbs, and fat content because they all have different metabolic effects.

Some “healthy” smoothies have little protein or fat, but a whole lot of carbs, mostly from sugar. Metabolically speaking, you’d be eating candy for breakfast! You could also look forward to blood sugar swings, cravings, crashing energy, and you may even become grumpy!

Sure, talking about death is an awkward and morbid topic, but what we don’t realize is that every day, we are engaging in unhealthy habits that increase our chances of being closer to death. Still, we choose to ignore our consequential actions until one day we find ourselves suffering from illnesses that we could have prevented a long time ago.

Another dilemma is that with the advancement of modern technology and medicine, Americans are now capable of living longer. So, we start to believe that we are “invincible.”  However, in many cases, the science for many breakthrough therapies, such as cryotherapy, stem cell, gene therapies remains unproven, or there is not enough scientific evidence to support the notion that they could extend lives. The answer to living longer always falls back to what our grandmothers did generations ago, and that was: eat healthily, exercise regularly, and sleep well every day.

If over the years, you have taken a detour from a healthy lifestyle, Almased has a diet hack that can help you cheat death by putting you back on the right path to living longer and healthier.
