It has been developed by a company (Pro-Ven Probiotics) with a good track record in the probiotic marketplace.

What are probiotics?Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that offer health benefits, especially your immune system and digestive system.

What are the Benefits of ShapeLine

There are several benefits to using ShapeLine. According to the manufacturers the following benefits may be experienced when using ShapeLine.

  1. Improve healthy bacteria population.
  2. Aid digestion.
  3. Improve immune system.
  4. Potentially help with the decrease in fat absorption.
  5. Help weight loss.

It is well documented that a good probiotic supplement can ease the symptoms of Menopause. Women approaching their 40’s and 50’s can experience hot flashes, anxiety, loss of libido and weight gain. –

How Does ShapeLine Work?

In theory it works much in the same way that most probiotic supplements work.

You take the supplement once a day and the healthy strains help replenish your gut with healthy bacteria.

The bacteria within ShapeLine is said to increase the production of bile (the fluid made and released by the liver, which to metabolize fat and stop the absorption of a percentage of fat from the food that you consume.

It would be wrong to call the probiotic a fat burner – more of a fat blocker. It also has the added benefit of lowering the production of bad cholesterol (LDL)
