Due to their specific ingredients, carbohydrate blockers can restrict the absorption of carbohydrates from food. The main component of carbohydrate blockers is usually the natural protein, phaseolin, obtained from beans.
In addition to this, carbohydrate blockers are often fortified with vitamins and zinc. Ingesting them blocks the formation of enzymes that are responsible for the absorption of carbohydrates.
Carbohydrate foods are made up of starch. This is broken down by the enzyme alpha-amylase and can be used in the body. However, not all carbohydrates are healthy for the body and can even have a negative effect on weight.
Carbohydrate blockers aim to suppress the enzyme alpha-amylase and thus prevent starch from breaking down. The carbohydrates are excreted from the body unused.
Phaseolin from the American kidney bean is used as the basis, but fenugreek seeds are also used in some cases. The protein phaseolin acts directly in the body and prevents the absorption of carbohydrates.
Carbohydrate blockers are often used as a supplement to a change in diet.
Carbohydrate blockers are usually taken with meals. This is the optimal time to counteract your carbohydrate intake.
The body can absorb and utilize the carbohydrate blockers well. The absorption of carbohydrates is reduced by carbohydrate blockers, the ingested carbohydrates are excreted without being utilized.
Scientific studies have shown that consuming too many and unhealthy carbohydrates can have a negative impact on weight. The natural ingredients in carbohydrate blockers ensure that these carbohydrates are not processed. Regular consumption can therefore be proven to have a positive effect on weight loss and thus support the diet in a healthy way.
When taking carbohydrate blockers as a dietary supplement, there are no known interactions with other drugs.
An overdose of the contained ingredients can be ruled out, as the body excretes the substances contained in the carbohydrate blockers. Thanks to the natural ingredients, carbohydrate blockers are well tolerated.
If you are unsure, it is advisable to consult your doctor, who can provide further information on a healthy diet in combination with carbohydrate blockers.
