Carbo blocker

February 3, 2008 at 6:05 am Leave a comment

Businesses have cottoned on to the demands for a slim, trim figure by churning out fat-busting products from the frontiers of alternative medicine. Products such as carbohydrate blockers work by inhibiting the metabolism of carbohydrates into stored fat.

This ingredient is called phaseolus vulgaris, an extract from the northern white kidney bean. The extract interferes with an enzyme in the body called alphaamylase that breaks down carbohydrates into glucose. Instead, carbohydrates are excreted from the body before entering the blood stream. Brand names such as Carb Blocker, Carb Away etc are available and are sold in stores.

However, the effectiveness of these products are still dubious and no concrete evidence is shown.
