In 1985, noted scientist and holistic therapist Hubertus Trouille created the unique Almased formula to treat and improve the metabolism of his patients in Germany. Based on their results, Almased was found to be very effective for losing weight and improving psychical and physical performance. Today, almost 20 years after Almased's invention, the company is owned and operated by Hubertus Trouille's son, Andre Trouille. Almased is still manufactured under the same quality standards and patented processes as it was when originally developed and is the best-selling weight loss product in Germany. In 1998, Almased USA, Inc was founded to bring the remarkable Almased products to Americans who seek to achieve or maintain their ideal weight while enhancing their overall health and wellness.
