Star Caps Overview
Star Caps is an all natural dietary supplement used by Hollywood stars to lose weight. Star Caps contains “a rare blend of papaya and garlic (from the higher Andes of Peru) that help metabolize protein, eliminate bloat and detoxify your system.”The official website states that Star Caps are not diet pills but rather “all natural dietary supplements”.
Perhaps referring to Star Caps as “all natural dietary supplements” is more glamorous than calling them diet pills; in the end, they are going after the same market – people who are seeking to lose weight. Star Caps is developed by Nikki Haskell, whose pictures are posted throughout the website -either glamour shots of her alone or with her celebrity friends. Beyond her pictures, we have no idea who this Nikki Haskell is or what her credentials are and no information is offered about her on the official website.
What is Star Caps?
In addition to the papaya and garlic extracts, Star Caps have the following ingredients: Valerian, Corn Spices, Papain (protein digestive enzyme), Magnesium Carbonate and Magnesium Oxide. They claim that just 2 capsules a day will help you melt off 10-125 pounds.
They recommend that StarCaps be taken with a glass of orange juice, a banana or potassium and you are further advised to avoid sugar, butter, and cheese. Each bottle of Star Caps contains a 2 week supply and includes a diet booklet.
One bottle retails for $80.00 plus $8.95 shipping and handling; thus a one month supply will cost you $160 (although, through their website, they offer you a $10 discount on the purchase of 2 bottles) but you are still responsible for the shipping and handling costs. To avoid shipping costs, you may buy StarCaps at retailers such as GNC, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Great Earth Vitamin Stores.

Star Caps Review – The Bottom Line
If you are serious about weight loss then perhaps a product that does not even want to be referred to as a diet pill is not the choice for you. Star Caps seems to be a temporary fix in any case; “detoxify your system and eliminate bloat” seems to suggest that these pills act as a form of diuretics and also promote water loss. If you want long term weight loss, you may want to purchase another less expensive product, one that has appetite suppressors, fat burners and metabolism boosters in its ingredients.
