Carbohydrates are necessary to provide the body with the energy it needs to function. Unfortunately, carbohydrates are the main ingredients in many of our favorite foods- which are also some of the worst things we can eat. Breads, pastas, potatoes, rices and alcohol all contain large amounts of carbohydrates and are nearly staples in the average persons diet. This product is marketed as being able to block those carbohydrates from becoming fat. The website says to take 1-2 capsules with each meal that contains carbohydrates. It also states that you must combine Carb Lock with exercise and a healthy meal plan to shed excess weight efficiently. Carb Lock is supposed to enable you to still eat the food you enjoy (albeit in moderation), while it partially blocks the carbohydrates contained in it to keep them from being stored as fat cells. In order for carbohydrates to be digested, they need to make use of a natural enzyme called amylase. Certain members of the bean family have been proven to block amylase production and clinical studies have shown that two thirds of carbohydrate intake was blocked in this way. This is why Carb Block uses extract of the Northern White Kidney Bean to help reduce the amount of carbs absorbed.
