About NOW Foods

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

NOW Commitments

  • Customer Focused and Information Driven - NOW believes that their products, services, and the decisions they make should be primarily influenced by the desires and needs of NOW customers. The decisions that NOW makes should be based on accurate information and therefore NOW places a high value on knowledge and learning within their organization.
  • Quality and Value Oriented - Acting in the best interest of NOW customers, NOW endeavors to produce the highest quality products at competitive prices. NOW's first priority is to maintain quality where it counts the most - in the products. NOW's exceptional cost-conscious team of employees then focuses their energies on driving costs down. Nurturing this competency of value drives NOW's ability to provide high quality products at the very best prices.
  • Natural is Better - NOW is convinced that natural products are better than their synthetic counterparts and produce better results in human health. Therefore, wherever possible, NOW strives to provide products that contain natural ingredients because they are better for their customers.

NOW Science
NOW experienced professional and technical staff formulate their products to be of the highest quality. NOW have a group of biochemists, chemists, nutritionists, and food technologists who review current science and nutritional parameters, and formulate their products to be effective for the intended use. NOW structure/function claims are based on science for active ingredients, and on nutritional science for nutritional content. Serving sizes are based on doses from clinical studies and other published data. NOW contemporary formulas are designed to meet the health and wellness needs of today’s consumers. NOW use ingredients that have been tested for effectiveness in clinical trials and laboratory studies.

The heart of their science is third party independent research. NOW investigate and review clinical studies and other lab studies conducted on their ingredients and their formulas. Best science is used to support best formulations which lead to best quality.

NOW products are constantly being tested in clinical trials conducted at top universities and research centers around the country and in various parts of the world. NOW products are being tested to determine such things as effectiveness for joint support, quality of life for cancer patients, cardiovascular support, and athletic endurance. Effective products mean health and wellness benefits, which mean quality.

GMP Quality Assured
NOW's GMP certification covers standard operating procedures, employee training, product specifications, expiration dating, vendor certifications and much more. Standard operating procedures include sampling and testing incoming materials according to NOW Foods specifications, inspecting manufacturing processes, and testing finished products to specifications. Tests include organoleptic evaluation (human senses such as sight, taste, smell), physical testing of tablets and capsules, chemical identity of ingredients, potency and contamination testing by the company's in-house state-of-the-art analytical testing lab, as well as microbiological testing by NOW Foods' in-house rapid analysis microbiological lab.



NOW™ Foods remains committed to its original goal – to produce the highest quality nutritional, herbal and body care products available…at prices people can afford. The company does this by sourcing our raw materials directly from the manufacturer, thereby relying less on brokers and distributors, and avoiding costly television and radio advertising.

Its high-volume business has allowed it to build strong business ties with some of the best raw material producers in the industry. NOW Foods savings are passed on to its customers in every product it manufactures, every day.

Diet Support Tea by Now Foods with ForsLean® is a patented ingredient derived from the herb Coleus forskolin that has been clinically shown to support healthy body composition when used in conjunction with healthy diet and exercise regimens.*

State of the art. Powerful yet safe. These guiding principles were used to formulate NOW’s Diet Support capsules, reflecting some of the most cutting edge research available.

Safety is one of the most important ingredients that goes into the formulation of every NOW product. For NOW Diet Support capsules, we required each ingredient to meet NOW’s stringent quality requirements, have comprehensive supportive research, and above all, have a proven safety record. We synergistically combined several key ingredients:

Super CitrimaxTM

(-)-Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is a relative of citric acid, a fruit acid that accounts for the tartness in lemons. HCA is naturally found in high amounts in the Malabar tamarind (Garcinia cambogia) fruit. Studies continue to amass on the role it plays in fat burning even with short-term use. It is believed that by inhibiting a particular enzyme, HCA moves the metabolism of excess carbohydrates away from inevitable fat storage.

And HCA may support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels as well, since this enzyme also functions in these arenas. The body’s stores of glycogen, an appetite-controlling carbohydrate is increased, a fact that interests exercise enthusiasts due to glycogen’s positive role in energy and endurance.

We know appetite is also partly controlled by a brain chemical called serotonin. Medical science is very interested in the role serotonin plays in sleep and mood as well. Studies suggest HCA may help the body support adequate serotonin levels, but naturally and without side effects [1]. For safety, we use the heavily researched and clinically proven Super CitrimaxTM form. Balanced with calcium and potassium and HPLC tested for purity.

Bitter Orange Extract

Many companies have chosen to use the stimulant ephedra or ephedrine in their diet support formulas. Concerns over these ingredients led us to turn to a patented Bitter Orange extract called Advantra Z®.

This powerful alternative has long had a variety of uses in traditional Chinese medicine and stimulates certain cell receptors in the body in a much more selective fashion than ephedrine. This reduces unwanted effects, while maintaining its thermogenic quality [2] *. Thermogenesis is a fat burning process that occurs independent of exercise. The researched Advantra Z® extract we chose uses a proprietary extraction technique that eliminates solvent residues. Standardized to 6% synephrine it includes four other biologically active and synergistic components +.

NOW Diet Support has been formulated to maximize effectiveness. In addition, this product was designed so that none of its ingredients interferes with or interacts with other commonly used diet support ingredients; in fact, NOW Diet Support enhances the entire weight loss process [1]+. In Part One of this article, we explained how Citrimax and Bitter Orange Extract assist in boosting the metabolism. Part Two concludes with some of the foundational components:

L-Carnitine

The nutrient l-Carnitine is the carrier that fats need to ride in order to enter the fat burning “furnaces” of our cells. Afterwards, the toxic byproducts are removed via l-Carnitine. This makes l-Carnitine deficiencies of critical import not only in fat metabolism but also for organs and tissues that rely on fats for their proper functioning.

The heart derives two thirds of its energy from fats. Therefore, many medical professionals welcome l-Carnitine’s cardiovascular support potential. NOW Diet Support contains a substantial amount of l-Carnitine to ensurenitine available. It is supplied by Lonza of Switzerland, and is guaranteed:" ":und in other brands.

Green Tea Extract

Green tea naturally contains protective antioxidants. Other companies add green tea to their diet support products for its naturally occurring caffeine content, which can provide changes in energy and metabolism. But research suggests it may be the antioxidants rather than the caffeine that are the critical components in green tea’s fat burning effect [2].

NOW uses a green tea standardized to contain a minimum of 60% of these important polyphenol antioxidants, and greater than 30% active catechin components. Tested for microbiological and heavy metal impurities this extract is guaranteed to be pesticide free.

Chromium and accessory nutrients

As every “Low Carb” dieter knows, the management of blood sugar levels plays an invaluable role in weight loss. Lifestyle factors including poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and stress can cause undesirable fluctuations in blood sugar and can even lead to a condition called insulin resistance syndrome.

This is a condition where insulin’s role in blood sugar control becomes hampered, possibly contributing to sleep disturbances, obesity, and even adult onset diabetes. Chromium is an important factor in insulin function and interest is building for its potential value in supporting healthy blood sugar levels [3] and weight management [4].

The addition of Vitamin B-6 and Uva Ursi to NOW Diet Support helps to support healthy water balance. Iodine is included to support the production of thyroid hormone. These ingredients round out a balanced, safe product that adds up to more than just a sum of its parts.
