In this review we focus on the supplement White Kidney Bean Carb Blocker. The manufacturers claim that this supplement intercepts the absorption of carbs, starches and fats. This prevents such foods from being broken down and converted into either fats or sugars, or from being digested. It is claimed that this supplement can help weight loss, and also that it reduces hunger and suppresses appetite.
The only active ingredient is White Kidney Bean Extract (600mg) – the white kidney bean (phaseolus vulgaris) is known to accelerate weight loss. It acts as a starch blocker, inhibiting the starch-digesting enzyme amylase that converts starch to absorbable sugar.
Other inactive ingredients are vegetable capsules, rice flour, and magnesium stearate. The manufacturer makes no mention of whether the magnesium stearate is derived from vegetable or animal sources; however, the rice flour is a mere bulking agent and offers no other value.
The manufacturer of this supplement directs that 2 capsules be taken before the largest meals each day. For optimal results, these supplements should be taken 20 to 30 minutes before a meal with 8 ounces of water. Alternatively, follow the instructions of your health-care provider. You should not take more than 4 capsules per day.
