Carb Block with Phase2™ is an all-natural, non-stimulant white kidney bean extract. It is the first carbohydrate blocker clinically proven in multiple studies to delay the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This, in turn, reduces the caloric impact of starchy foods, and also lowers the glycemic index.
How does carb block with Phase 2™ help with weight loss?
Over the past few years as fat intake has dropped, carbohydrate consumption has increased. An average diet in North America provides almost 50% of total calories from carbohydrates. Also increasing with carb consumption have been the rates of diabetes and obesity. Foods containing starchy carbohydrates, such as potatoes, pasta, bread, and grains, such as white rice, which have been refined, have a high glycemic index. That means they will spike insulin levels as high as white sugar will. When blood sugar is high the body will store carbs as fat.
The pancreas produces a starch-digesting enzyme called “alpha amylase,” which converts starch into glucose (sugar). Calories from sugar are either burned, by activity, or stored as fat cells, when there is not enough activity to burn them. PHASE 2™ binds with alpha amylase, thereby “neutralizing” starch calories and preventing their conversion into glucose, and the ensuing storage as fat cells in the body. Safe, non-stimulant, carbohydrate control produces weight loss by reducing body fat, not muscle. Phase 2 has no known side effects, or drug interactions. It is backed up by clinical research done with humans.
Clinical studies are based on one 500mg capsule, taken 3 times per day with meals. One gram (1000mg) of PHASE 2™ will neutralize the starch calories of one pound of pasta, or one loaf of bread. Use one PHASE 2™ capsule with each meal that contains carbohydrates in the form of flours, starches or sugars, at least 3 times per day.
