Carb Down - 90 Capsules
- One capsule of Carb-Down blocks up to 100 grams (400 calories) of starch.
- Carb-Down is a supplement that can be used strategically to support weight management.
- Carb-Down is vegetarian.
As vegetarian dietary supplement to inhibit carbohydrate absorption, Carb-Down is a unique combination of the Phase 2 brand starch neutralizer, Gymnema sylvestre, and Chromemate brand chromium polynicotinate. Phase 2 starch neutralizer is an extract from the white kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). Research shows that this extract can block the absorption of carbohydrates (from starch) because it contains a protein component that inhibits the enzyme alpha-amylase from breaking down carbohydrates from foods. When this enzyme is blocked, the starch thats eaten cannot be converted to fat. In a recent double-blind study in humans, Phase 2 starch neutralizer decreased the percentage of caloric burden from complex carbohydrates by 60%. The addition of Gymnema sylvestre and Chromemate is to support appetite control and glucose metabolism.
