We all love to eat carbohydrates: potatoes, rice, bread, pasta. Ordinarily, these ingested carbs are broken down into sugar and deposited in the blood stream, which impacts sugar levels causing cravings for sugary (and fatty) foods, leading to weight gain. Our SL Series Carb Blocker Max formula inhibits this breakdown of carbs into sugar, allowing the carbs to pass through your system, and for you to enjoy the carbs that you love while avoiding weight gain. Specifically, the white kidney bean extract in Carb Blocker Max blocks the digestive enzyme called alpha-amylase that is responsible for the breakdown of carbohydrates. The unabsorbed carbs then pass out your body as waste. In order to get the same benefits as taking one of our white kidney bean extract capsules, you'd have to eat large amounts of white kidney beans. Combining white kidney bean extract with a balanced diet and exercise is a great way to enjoy your favorite starchy foods like potatoes, rice and bread all while shedding excess weight. For best results, it is best to use Carb Blocker Max ahead of time when you know you'll be consuming a very carb-heavy meal. There are no known side effects associated with taking white kidney bean extract. Sendel Lab's SL Series Carb Blocker Max is manufactured in the USA at an FDA inspected facility.
