Nature’s Diet Caps +, provided by Douglas
Laboratories, is a combination of an herb and a
mineral specifically designed to support sensible
weight management programs such as those involving
consistent, moderate dietary restriction and regular
Each capsule of Nature’s Diet Caps + delivers 250
mg of (-)hydroxycitric acid from 500 mg of a highquality,
standardized Garcinia cambogia extract.
This natural extract comes from a tropical fruit grown
in several Asian rain forest areas. Research shows
that (-)hydroxycitric acid helps maintain a healthy
balance of hepatic lipogenesis and gluconeogenesis,
thus preventing excessive conversion of glucose from
dietary carbohydrate into body fat. Further, research
indicates that (-)hydroxycitric acid plays an important
role in the regulation of normal appetite. Unlike many
commonly used diet ingredients, (-)hydroxycitric acid
is not a central nervous stimulant, and will not lead to
side effects such as insomnia, nervousness,
depression, hypertension, rapid heart rate, addiction,
or withdrawal symptoms.
Chromium is also provided at a significant level by
Nature’s Diet Caps +. This essential trace mineral
potentiates insulin action and thus influences
carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism. In its
biologically active form, sometimes called glucose
tolerance factor (GTF) from brewer’s yeast,
chromium is associated with nicotinic acid (vitamin
B-3). Chromium polynicotinate closely resembles the
brewer’s yeast GTF in both biological activity and
chemical composition as it also contains chromium
associated with nicotinic acid. Chromium
polynicotinate is yeast-free and has documented high
bioavailability. The typical dietary chromium intake
in the U.S. can vary considerably depending on eating
habits. Most self-selected diets contain less than 50
mcg per day, which is below the minimum of the Estimated Safe and Adequate Daily Dietary Intake
established by the National Research Council, Food
and Nutrition Board.
Nature’s Diet Caps + capsules may be a useful
dietary supplement for those who wish to successfully
manage their weight.
