BariatricPal Nature's Carb Blocker

Product Description

A carb blocker (sometimes referred to as a starch blocker) is a dietary supplement that is designed to keep starches from being absorbed in the GI tract blocking the absorption of calories found in these starches. Carbohydrate blockers work by inhibiting the activity of maltose and sucrose. This leads to decreased absorption of main carbohydrates from diet and that means lesser calories which promote weight loss. Inhibition of these enzymes also promotes satiety thus reducing energy intake. Using an effective carb blocker can enhance the results expected from a diet plan that is purposefully low in carbohydrate intake.

Our Carb Blocker contains four unique active ingredients:

  • Phaseolus Vulgaris (Bean Protein) – this ingredient inhibits the starch digesting the enzyme Amylase thus blocking the digesting of starches. Studies on this ingredient have demonstrated the ability to enhance inch and weight loss. Patients whose calorie and carbohydrate intake was highest demonstrated the most significant results.
  • Gymnema Sylvestre Extract – this ingredient comes from the leaves of a woody shrub native to India and Africa.  This ingredient has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for many years and is called “gurmar” which in Hindu means “destroyer of sugar.”  Gymnema inhibits Amylase, thus blocking digestion of starches.
  • Cassia Cinnamomum Extract – this is a type of cinnamon prepared from the dried inner bark of an evergreen tree that grows in Southeastern Asia.  Cassia Cinnamomum contains hydroxychalcome and similar chemicals that improve insulin sensitivity which may improve blood glucose control in patients with diabetes. With starches being blocked by the other ingredients and the addition of Cassia Cinnamomum, stored and circulating glucose can be used as energy, thus improving blood sugar levels.
  • Vanadium Sulfate – this ingredient is an inorganic form of the mineral vanadium.  There is evidence that it aids in increasing the effectiveness of insulin.  

Carbohydrate blockers work by inhibiting the activity of maltose and sucrose. This leads to decreased absorption of main carbohydrates from diet and that means lesser calories which promote weight loss. Inhibition of these enzymes also promotes satiety thus reducing energy intake. Using an effective carb blocker can enhance the results expected from a diet plan that is purposefully low in carbohydrate intake.
