Frequently Asked


  • I am pregnant. Can I use Benevita products?

    If you are pregnant, consult a physician before using Benevita products. Maintaining a healthy diet during pregnancy is essential to ensuring the well-being of mother and child. Benevita products are safe and beneficial for the majority of healthy adults, but expecting and nursing mothers should consult health care providers before their use.

  • Can I use Benevita products if I have a medical condition?

    If you have a medical or health condition, are taking prescription medications, or have dietary restrictions, please consult a medical professional before using Benevita products or changing your diet or lifestyle. 

  • Will Benevita cause drug interactions?

    Benevita products are not medications but dietary supplements, so they should have no negative impact on your health. But if you are currently taking physician-supervised medications, we recommend you consult your health care provider before adding Benevita products to your diet.

    Also, ensure when using Benevita supplements that you consume the FDA’s daily recommended intake of vitamins, minerals, and calories for the safest, most beneficial effects.

  • Can children use Benevita products?

    ACN’s Benevita products have been developed and formulated specifically for adults, so we advise against their consumption by children. 

  • Can I mix Shake-It! with water and/or milk?

    While we recommend Shake-It! to be mixed with water, you can certainly mix it with low-fat milk or typical milk substitutes for increased flavour or nutritional benefits. Be sure to monitor portion sizes, however, as additional ingredients can increase calorie load per serving.  Also, be sure to check out our Vanilla Shake-It! recipes on the Benevita web site,, for tasty and healthy ideas that add a little more flair and flavour to your shake! 

  • Can I add fruit or other ingredients to Shake-It!?

    Adding fruit or other healthy ingredients to Shake-It! can increase its nutritional benefits. Keep in mind, however, that added ingredients will increase per-serving calorie load. ACN formulates Benevita Shake-It! drinks for optimal results when made according to label instructions.

  • Where is the best place to store Shake-It!?

    Store Shake-It! powders in a cool, dry place, and maintain them at or below room temperature. Avoid product exposure to humidity or sunlight.

  • Where is the best place to store capsules?

    Store capsules in a cool, dry area at or below room temperature or in the refrigerator. Do not place unused capsules where they might receive exposure to humidity or sunlight, and keep them safely stored in the original bottle with lid tightly closed. 

  • Which government entities are responsible for regulating Benevita products?

    ACN’s core values include individual and corporate compliance with all international, federal, and local laws, including applicable regulatory laws. All ACN products available in Europe are produced, labeled, and imported in accordance with regulations established by the European Union and the relevant authorities in the countries in which our products are sold or distributed. 

  • When do Benevita products expire?

    We stamp all Benevita products with a ”best before” date. After this date, we cannot ensure the efficacy of products or their flavour. We do not permit sale of Benevita products after the “best before” date. ACN recommends that IBOs sell Benevita products prior to one-month remaining expiration dates.

  • What is glucomannan?

    Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fibre derived from konjac root. The Benevita Weight Management System contains 3 grams of glucomannan, the Japanese-grown and harvested Amorphophallus konjac root that actively contributes to natural, progressive weight loss when accompanied by a calorie-restricted diet.

  • I am a vegetarian. Which Benevita products can I use?

    All Benevita products are suitable for vegetarians. 

  • How much water do I need to drink?

    Shake-it!, Go!, and Recover! capsules contain glucomannan. In order to ensure product efficacy as well as overall hydration and health, we recommend consuming at least 2.25 litres of fluid per day. This helps maintain blood volume and prevents dehydration. You should also remember to spread your fluid intake throughout the day, and avoid consuming a large amount at once.

  • Will I need vitamin supplements while using the programme?

    Benevita has specially formulated Shake-It! to meet the EU requirements for foods used in energy-restricted diets for weight reduction that replace one or more meals a day. A full list of nutritional facts and ingredients is available on the Benevita web site.

  • Are there any side effects?

    While made from natural ingredients, the Benevita Weight Management System should be followed according to directions for use to avoid complications or side effects.
