Carb Blocker 500 mg
Carb Blocker, a natural starch neutraliser
Carb Blocker contains phaseolamine, a natural extract of the kidney bean (Phaseola vulgaris) which inhibits the enzyme alpha-amylase. This enzyme digests the starch in food and converts it into glucose. Phaseolamine helps to neutralize ingested starch, which is important for diabetics as well as for those trying to reduce or control their weight by following a low-carb diet.
¤ Two capsules of Carb Blocker provide one gram of phaseolamine which has been shown in vitro to help neutralize 2,750 calories of starch (around 600g of spaghetti for example). Its efficacy has been confirmed by two in vivo studies: in one, individuals supplemented with phaseolamine lost almost 3.5kg in one month, while those given a placebo lost less than 500g. In the second, absorption of starch was reduced by 66% in those supplemented.
¤ Fabenol™ phaseolamine is obtained from non-GMO plants. It has no stimulant effect. Each gra ...
What is Garcinia cambogia?
