What You Need To Know
Carbo Guard is a part of the Herbalife family. Herbalife has been around for more than 28 years and is based in Los Angeles, California. The website allows you to contact Herbalife via an email address, a physical address or a phone number. Their products are for health and well being and are distributed in more than 70 countries by more than 1.9 million individual representatives.
As far as I can tell, Herbalife’s Carbo Guard is formulated with two major ingredients…chromium and Vanadium. Chromium may provide multiple benefits, including weight loss assistance, lowered cholesterol and glucose, and aid in burning fat and building muscle tissue. Vanadium is an herbal medication used to treat diabetes and help lower cholesterols. It also carries in it fiber which has been shown to slow the absorption of carbohydrates.
This product features the ability to assist you in achieving your weight loss goals, while lowering your cholesterol and blood sugar levels and raising your ability to burn calories and create lean muscle. Chromium is of extreme importance for the body’s utilization of insulin, and may help prevent swings in blood sugar levels. This is the idea behind controlling sugar and carb cravings. The recommended daily dose is 200 mcg (0.2 mg). The fiber may be helpful with blood sugar swings too. My only concern is that fiber generally inhibits the absorption of nutrients taken with it. That’s why you should never take your Psylium or Metamucil (if you use that) at the same time as your other supplements.

I actually had to refer to a few different sites to establish things like ingredients and marketers when it came to this product. When searching for carbo guard you are first sent to a product used as an epoxy. When I finally found Herbalife’s Carbo Guard, it was from an individual representative of the company but when searching for a more succinct product description on Herbalife.com, I came to the realization that this product is not available through the main website anymore. I am sure it is a worthwhile supplement, available from a long standing and reputable company, but the fact that it is in short supply either brings me to believe that it didn’t work as well as reported or it just plain didn’t work.
