This product has been specifically designed for those who eat pasta, bread and other carbohydrate-heavy foods. The triple-approach formula works to: Neutralize Starch Enzymes: White Kidney Bean is an all-natural, non-stimulant ingredient that neutralizes the negative effects of carbohydrates by inhibiting a portion of the body's amylase, the enzyme responsible for digesting starch. This powerful plant extract works to decrease the number of starch-carbohydrate calories digested by the body. Enhance Digestion: Lipase and Protease are necessary enzymes responsible for breaking down fats and proteins. These enzymes are included in this formula to optimize the digestion of foods. Support Metabolism: Chromium Picolinate helps to promote healthy metabolism of carbohydrates and fats in the body. This formula also supplies a concentrated extract of Cinnamon. When combined with a healthy reduced calorie diet and exercise plan, Maximum Strength 3-in-1 Carb Blocker provides a targeted approach to helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
