Diet Doc Warns Against Potential Side Effects of Unregulated Weight Loss Supplement Forskolin

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 01:00:00 EST

HELENA, MT--(Marketwired - February 17, 2017) - The Forskolin Diet is based on the ingestion of an extracted herb that comes from the root of a plant that grows in India and Thailand. In the states, it is taken in the form of a supplement to treat many conditions including asthma, glaucoma, heart disease and weight loss. Being that forskolin is an unregulated supplement, there are no published guidelines regarding proper dosing, nor is there a standard as to the amount of forskolin that retailers must include in each tablet; meaning that potency can vary from retailer to retailer. Though preliminary research has suggested that forskolin might lead to a greater loss of body fat and elevated hormone levels over time, the safety and efficacy of the forskolin still has yet to be established.

Dr. Nishant Rao of Diet Doc Prefers Balanced Diet Planning for Weight Loss Over the Alkaline Diet

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 01:00:00 EST

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - February 15, 2017) - Honduran naturalist and holistic health guru, Dr. Sebi might have been best known for his claims that individuals should be only consuming foods that are identified as 'alkalizing plant foods (the alkaline diet)' to support the claim on his website that, "These foods control the acid level in the body, which protects against harmful mucus buildup that compromises organs and leads to the development of disease." Dr. Nishant Rao -- Medical Director of the nationally recognized weight loss program, Diet Doc believes that this particular claim isn't backed up by the facts. "The truth is that food has a very minor impact on the acid level within the body, which is in fact controlled by the lungs and the kidneys." Dr. Rao continues, "The body's normal acidic range is extremely narrow 7.35 to 7.45. Additionally, the pH for blood (which Dr. Sebi's diet is presumably referring to) is different from that of various cells in various parts of the body." Blood pH is highly regulated by the body, to the point where severe health issues can occur if it is thrown out of range.
