Maximum International 1-EZ Diet Fat & Carb Blocker - 60 Capsules
Maximum International 1-EZ Diet, Fat & Carb Blocker blocks the absorption of carbohydrates, binds unwanted dietary fat before it can be stored in the body and regulates blood sugar levels. With so many diet products on the market, how do you decide which one will be most effective? With that question in mind, Maximum International has introduced 1-EZ Diet Fat & Carb Blocker, formulated to address a dieter’s multiple needs for safe and effective weight loss. Fat & Carb Blocker does just that ― blocks the absorption of fat and carbohydrates from the diet and helps to eliminate them from the body.
Fat & Carb Blocker contains chitosan, a product derived from the fibrous outer shell of crustaceans. Chitosan binds to and absorbs many times its weight in fat and cholesterol in the intestine. Because chitosan is a fiber, it helps speed the elimination of these substances from the body. Phaseolus vulgaris derived from white kidney beans is another ingredient in Fat & Carb Blocker. This derivative interferes with the production of alpha-amylase, the enzyme that breaks down starch from carbohydrates into simple sugars that are easily absorbed into the blood stream. Why is this an important factor in healthy weight loss? Simple sugars that are not expended as energy are converted into glycogen and fatty acids which are then stored as body fat. To make matters worse, elevated levels of glucose made from simple sugars contribute to the abnormal insulin levels that are associated with type 2 diabetes. Fat & Carb Blocker contains oat bran, another healthy fiber.
Oat bran is a soluble fiber that has long been known to lower harmful cholesterol when consumed regularly. It is recommended by the American Heart Association as part of a low fat, low cholesterol diet. As a weight loss aid, oat bran’s bulking properties help to reduce appetite, assist in the elimination of fats, and control blood sugar levels. Chromium is another key ingredient found in Fat & Carb Blocker. This essential trace mineral promotes weight loss by improving the utilization of insulin, reducing body fat, and maintaining lean body mass. Many people are lacking in this crucial nutrient that is depleted in over-farmed soils or stripped out of processed foods. Fat & Carb Blocker contains 44 mcg of chromium to promote healthy musculature and help burn unwanted body fat. Unlike other products, Fat & Carb Blocker can help you shed excess body fat by addressing the multiple factors that contribute to unwanted weight gain.
Chitosan is a nontoxic fat-absorbing fiber found in the outer shells of crustaceans. Unlike other weight loss substances, chitosan captures or absorbs fat in the stomach and carries it safely out of the body as waste. As a fiber, chitosan dissolves in the stomach and provides a feeling of fullness, helping to suppress the appetite. Like insoluble plant fibers, it is not digestible and therefore has no caloric value. However, unlike plant fibers, chitosan’s unique properties give it the ability to significantly bind fat, acting like a “fat sponge” in the digestive tract. The best time to take chitosan is with a meal that contains unwanted or “bad” fats. Every gram of chitosan absorbs up to 6 grams of fat. Water is a very important cofactor to chitosan because it will assist your body to pass the fat through your digestive tract. Therefore, the more water the better. Chitosan should not be used when consuming “good” fats such as the healthful essential fatty acids and the fat-soluble vitamins A, E, D and K. To avoid their absorption from being inhibited, these healthy fats should be taken four hours before or after taking chitosan.
Chromium Picolinate is a mineral best known for helping to regulate blood cholesterol and blood glucose levels. It is vital for the metabolism of glucose and for the synthesis of fats and proteins. The average American diet is chromium deficient for many reasons. One such reason is the high consumption of sugar in the typical American diet which causes a loss of chromium in the body. Another is the lack of chromium in mineral-depleted soils and processed foods. It has been estimated that 2 out of 3 Americans are hypoglycemic, pre-diabetic, or diabetic, and that insufficient chromium may play a key role. Due to its ability to control blood sugar and metabolize fats, Chromium is widely used as an effective weight loss aid and to control appetite. Studies also show it may increase longevity and help fight osteoporosis. Supplemental chromium is best absorbed by the body when “chelated” or bonded, with picolinate, a naturally occurring amino acid metabolite.
