Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 is a weight loss supplement made in America by Windmill Health Products LLC.
There’s presently only one version being produced and it comes in a red and white bottle, but there used to be three different types.
All of them contained its own individual formulation of ingredients and, despite the fact that they were four very different products, they were all called Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4. The only way to differentiate between them was by looking at the packaging’s colour.
This caused a lot of confusion, so it’s great that Windmill Health have finally decided to pick one version and stick with it. However, the way they have done things is still a little strange.
The former colour choices were red, green, and blue. This being the case, the present colour choice (red) makes it appear Windmill Health decided to go with the “red” formulation, but this is not so.
They chose the “green” formulation and made it the new red. Just to make matters that little bit more confusing, there are still a lot of the old green boxes of Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 available to buy online. So, if you buy the old green version (in a box) or the new red version (without a box) the pills are the same.
Neither formulation has any similarities to the old red version (in a box), but they are all called Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4.
What is Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 and How Does it Work?
Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 is a diet pill powered by four natural ingredients and designed to help people to lose weight by providing support in four different ways:
- Burns calories
- Controls the appetite
- Binds fat
- Satiety and digestion
Three tablets provide:
- Green Tea Leaf Extract and Matcha Tea (262.5mg): Matcha is a finely ground green tea powder that’s believed to have 10 times the power of normal green tea, so it’s a little strange that Windmill Health have chosen to dilute it with normal green tea extracts. However, this is probably a pretty potent dose and green tea of any kind is a good ingredient to have. It’s packed with health-boosting anti-oxidants and also boasts proven fat burning
- Garcinia Cambogia Extract (750mg): Extracts taken from garcinia cambogia fruit are rich in hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which has the ability to help kill hunger urges. HCA further assists weight loss by preventing the body from converting excess carbohydrates to body fat. However experts believe, in order to be effective, the HCA content of garcinia cambogia must be at least 60%. The HCA percentage of the extract used here is not disclosed.
- Glucomannan (200mg): A form of natural fibre that absorbs water inside the stomach and expands to create a feeling of satiety. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has evaluated all the claims made about the various heath benefits associated with glucomannan and only endorse it’s ability to lower cholesterol levels and help provide weight loss. However, the EFSA state three (1000mg) doses are needed per day. A daily dose of 200mg is not enough to provide the promised appetite suppressing effect.
- ProBiotic Blend (250mg): A dose of good bacteria to help improve gut health. A healthy digestive system absorbs nutrients more efficiently, and may provide some degree of weight loss, but probiotics should never be considered a “power ingredient”.

Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 Side Effects & Health Issues
None of the active ingredients have a reputation for causing side effects, but women who are pregnant or nursing an infant should refrain from using any brand of supplement unless their doctor has informed them it is safe to do so. The same advice is offered to people who have existing health problems and/or are using medication.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
It’s not possible to purchase Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 from the manufacturer’s website or the special site they have built specially to promote the product.
This makes it very hard for UK residents who wish to buy Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 because, although the product is available to buy from many American pharmacies and certain stores, such as Walmart and Kmart, most of them don’t ship to the UK.
There are normally several listing on eBay, but buying diet pills on eBay can be a chancy pursuit because you can never be certain the products you receive are genuine.
Most of the eBay sellers are offering the old green box of Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 so, even if it’s genuine, it must be old stock. However, the price for the new red-type supplement is generally £13 to £18, plus the cost of international shipping and this often doubles the cost.
There is no money back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
Doctor’s Select Weight Loss 4 should provide some level of support in most of the ways it’s intended to, but it is unlikely to work as a fat binder. Windmill health state they’ve added glucomannan to bind fat.
The experts at the EFSA have already evaluated glucomannan’s potential in this regard and say it does not possess fat binding abilities. And the fact that the amount provided is not enough to allow it to unleash its ability to suppress the appetite, means the presence of glucomannan serves no purpose.
However, people living in the UK won’t have easy access to the product anyway and would be far better off seeking a stronger-acting diet pill that’s easier to obtain.
