Fulfill Plus Facts
- Developed by an anonymous German doctor
- Proven medical device class for treating obesity and weight management
- Available in UK stores or online
Fulfill Plus is manufactured by German company Scheffler Plantafood GmbH (who seem to be now called “Plantafood Medical”) and distributed in the UK and Ireland by World Foods Brand Management (WFBM) Ltd, who market a number of health supplements. We could find NO information about the manufacturer on the official Fulfill Plus or distributers’ website.
On the plus side, we could find no Fulfill Plus scam or rip off reports or for either the manufacturer or distributor too!
We had no problem getting hold of Fulfill Plus though, as the two or three Holland and Barrett stores we visited seemed to stock it!
The official website is very basic and although not a bad looking site fails to give any real in-depth information about the product or manufacturer. There is a contact number and web contact form to allow you to contact them directly. You can also purchase directly from the site from their basic and functional “online shop”. Again the bare minimum of information is available here and no mention of any money-back guarantee.
Fulfill Plus has been given EU proven medical device class 11a status, which means it can be used for the treatment of obesity and for weight management. Marketing information claims the supplement was developed by a German Doctor, who was looking for an effective way to manage meal size portions to combat the growing trend to eat larger meals.
We tried to find out more about the development behind Fulfill Plus and the German doctor (even just his name!) but couldn’t find this information anywhere!
So let’s move on and take a look at how Fulfill Plus works.
Fulfill Plus Concerns:
- THE COST! Recommended serving means you may need 3 bottles per month!!
- Lack of independent consumer testimonials
- Lack of scientific data referenced to back up claims
What Does Fulfill Plus Claim To Do?
Fulfill Plus claims to be a unique clinically proven way to reduce your food portion sizes for treating obesity and managing your weight.
The unique ingredient absorbs up to 50 times it weight producing a natural gel in the stomach that means you can only eat less due to feeling fuller sooner.
They claim this can have longer-lasting results as …
A full dosage of Fulfill Plus can take up as much as 50% of your stomach volume so after a few days you will notice that your portion size will naturally reduce which will also help re-educate your eating habits.
So What Is Fulfill Plus and What Are The Ingredients For Fulfill Plus?
Fulfill Plus is an appetite suppressant diet pill that aims to reduce calorie intake by making you feel fuller sooner. This means that during meal times you eat less food and as a consequence consume fewer calories.
There is only one active ingredient in this supplement Plantago ovatae, which is 100% natural and is suitable for vegetarians.
- Plantago Ovatae (400mg): Also known as Ispaghula husk, it contains high level of soluble dietary fibre that swells when in contact with water by absorbing up to 50 times its weight in fluid. This has been suggested to increase sensation of satiety, which in turn may help weight loss. Some evidence to show it may help to stimulate bowel movements by softening stools and relieving constipation.
So What Does All This Mean?
The natural ingredient Plantago Ovatae when mixed with water expands to be 50 times its normal size turning into a gel like substance. This adds bulk in the stomach so that there is less space for the food about to be consumed. This should mean that you can only eat less than your normal portion sizes, so that you eat less calories during each meal.
Fulfill Plus aims to combat the trend for growing portion sizes by making you stop eating quicker so that you eat less. Following this approach over a few days could mean you naturally reduce portion size, helping to re-educate your body and eating habits.
How to Take Fulfull Plus Tablets
You are advised to take 3 to 5 Fulfill Plus tablets with a large glass of water 30 minutes before your main meals. You should start with just 3 tablets and increase to a maximum of 5 depending on getting used to the supplement and your feelings of fullness.
You should be aware that as the daily recommendation is to take upwards of 5 tablets before each of your main meals, you can soon find that you take 15 tablets per day. This means that one bottle will not be enough for one month’s supply.
Does Fulfill Plus Have Any Side Effects?
Most consumers will not suffer from any negative side effects.
You are required to consume at least 2 litres of water per day whilst taking Fulfill Plus tablets. You should only continue taking this supplement for 30 days.
If you are taking any medicines you are advised to take them at least an hour before consummation as Fulfill Plus can delay absorption.
Caution: You are advised not to take this supplement if you suffer from disease-related strictures in the gastro-intestinal tract, bowel disorders,and diabetes or have a known hypersensitivity to Plantago ovatae (Ispaghula husk).
Warning: If you are hypersensitive there is a chance that adverse reactions can occur. You may experience an increase in bowel motions along with softening of faeces.
Any Fulfill Plus Reviews From Customers?
We could find only ONE customer testimonial for Fulfill Plus and this was on the official website! No other sites stocking this product have any positive or negative testimonials.
So what does the ONLY consumer review say?
Over the next few weeks I started making myself much smaller portions around 2 thirds as much as usual and my weight started shifting, the first week I lost around 4 pounds and then it steadied to between 2-3 pounds per week yet it didn’t feel like I was dieting.
Michele gained weight during pregnancy and had trouble shifting the weight after giving birth. She started using Fulfill Plus and managed to lose just over 3 stone in 4 months by reducing her portion sizes and helping her to eat less.
It’s a shame there weren’t more reviews available!
So Does Fulfill Plus Work?
There is evidence to suggest that Plantago Ovatae, also known as Blond Psyllium, could be an effective dietary fibre that promotes sensations of fullness, which in turn may promote positive weight loss results.
The Medline Plus website suggests that Blond Psyllium it…
can make dietary fat more difficult to digest and can increase the amount of fat lost is the stool when taken in combination with dietary fats such as soybean oil or coconut oil.
What is not taken into account is the amount of this ingredient required to exert an effect. We couldn’t find any studies online, or on the official Fulfill Plus website, that supports the claim it a full dosage of Fulfill Plus can take up to 50% of stomach volume, resulting in reduced food portions.
In summary, Fulfill Plus may provide a way to manage and decrease food intake. The main ingredient Plantago Ovatae is considered mostly safe, if not hypersensitive, as long as it’s taken with plenty of fluids.
Where Can I Buy Fulfill Plus?
Fulfill Plus is available over the counter without prescription from selected Holland and Barrett stores and online.
One bottle of 120 capsules costs around £38 ($57). You could quickly find that one bottle doesn’t last long though as you are required to take 9-15 tablets per day, meaning your supply maybe finished in 8 days!

Overeating is certainly an obesity time-bomb and a supplement that offers a solution to reducing meal sizes and controlling hunger pains is welcome.
At first Fulfill Plus has all the elements to be a fantastic diet supplement but we were disappointed when we dug a little deeper.
Initially Fulfill Plus seems to be reasonably priced but when looking at the serving size you soon realise that this supplement could be costly! One box will not last very long if taking the recommended 3 to 5 tablets prior to each meal, meaning you may need up to 450 tablets per month. This means the potential cost could work out to be around £150 ($225), making it potentially one of the MOST expensive UK diet pills on the market!
You may well lose weight taking Fulfill Plus but it will come at a cost!
With the lack of scientific references to back up claims, lack of consumer reviews and money-back guarantee from the manufacturer we have to reject Fulfill Plus diet pills.
