Source Naturals - Phase 2 Carbohydrate Blocker 500 mg - 30 Tablets
Source Naturals Phase 2 Carbohydrate Blocker contains Phase 2 white kidney bean extract. Phase 2 works by slowing down the digestion of starch by inhibiting alpha- amylase, an enzyme that breaks down starch to be more fully absorbed by the body. Carbohydrate Blocker may help support weight loss when used in conjunction with the Maximum Metabolism Weight Loss Plan (included).
Weight Control Is Acute Health Concern
Excess weight is a major health challenge in the United States. Statistics confirm 110 million overweight Americans, of which 39 million are more than 30 pounds overweight.
The number of overweight individuals has grown by epidemic proportions in the Western world and the trend is a grave one. According to Journal of American Medical Association research, during the past ten years the number of overweight Americans has increased by 65 percent. And a new risk group is comprised of “fast-food-loving” children, of whom one in three now tips the scales at “overweight.”
Weight Loss Is An Uphill Battle
One thing we know for certain about weight management is that for many people it becomes a lifetime struggle. And when these individuals lose weight, they more often than not gain it back. In fact, once off their diet, people rebound and put on an additional 10 percent, ending up heavier than when they started their diet.
One major “offender” when it comes to weight issues is the impact of carbohydrate consumption. Why do we gain weight when we eat carbohydrates? Complex carbohydrates are digested by alpha amylase, which breaks them down, principally as glucose. This glucose is then stored as energy or fat. It was theorized that a product that could block this activity would reduce the amount of carbohydrates converted to glucose.
People balk at dramatic changes in lifestyle, no matter how many times your doctor may say “the best way to lose weight is to push yourself away from the table.” So the goal of scientists becomes to identify a convenient way to cut down on caloric consumption, principally carbohydrates.
Powerful Starch Control
Source Naturals Phase 2 Carbohydrate Blocker supports the dieter’s quest for a healthy and simple weight loss when used in conjunction with the Maximum Metabolism Weight Loss Plan. Carbohydrates (common foods such as pasta, bread, baked goods, rice, grains and potatoes) are high in calories. And a typical Western diet gets half its daily caloric intake from starch.
Phase 2 Carbohydrate Blocker is offered in tablets, and in tasty, fruit flavored, chewable wafers. Both contain a highly refined derivative of white kidney beans. Phase 2 Carbohydrate Blocker works by inhibiting alpha amylase, an enzyme that breaks down starch into glucose so that it can be absorbed in the body, thus decreasing caloric intake.
With Phase 2Carbohydrate Blocker, undigested starch may pass through the body unabsorbed. Two tablets taken just before meals may reduce the digestion of dietary starches.
Phase 2 Carbohydrate Blocker is manufactured through a proprietary process and studies prove that it’s safe and easy to use. The studies indicate that there is no effect on the digestion and absorption of other foodstuffs, namely protein.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well- researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
