What You Should Know
Carbozyne is an all-natural carbohydrate and fat blocking dietary supplement manufactured by PowerNutra, a leading supplement provider in the United States. Carbozyne’s formulation combines Phaseolus Vulgaris and Chitosan as part of their all-natural formulation, which the manufacturers claim will effectively block fats and carbohydrates from being absorbed by the body. Because this is merely a fat blocker, it does not offer any weight loss benefits. A more complete formulation would make Carbozyne beneficial for all dieters. Nevertheless, Carbozyne markets itself as another fat blocker that will allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without the caloric side effects. Fat blockers are regarded as all hype in the dieting world, and there are some factors in Carbozyne that makes it more hype than truth. There are also some factors that might make Carbozyne more effective than the average fat blocker.
Carbozyne’s official website is not available at this time, but Carbozyne is widely available from many popular online sites. Carbozyne is normally sold in 60 count bottles for $19.95 each — however, some suppliers offer discounts. Further information about Carbozyne, including sample trials and product guarantees, are not known because of the website’s unavailability. Carbozyne is still decently priced and is accessible enough for all dieters. Further observation into Carbozyne’s formulation should reveal its true potency.

The makres of Carbozyne emphasize that its potency is derived from Chitosan and Phaseolus Vulgaris, two popular diet supplement ingredients. Unfortunately, only one of these ingredients has verifiable proof as a fat and carb blocker. Various studies show that Phaseolus Vulgaris, otherwise known as White Kidney Bean Extract, helps prevent carbohydrates from being fully absorbed by the body. However, studies show that Phaseolus Vulgaris is best absorbed through natural food instead of extract form for the most potency and it can be obtained by eating a variety of beans.
Chitosan, on the other hand, is not considered a potent carb or fat blocker. Studies show that Chitosan removes roughly 30 calories from the body if taken in heavy dosages. It does not appear Carbozyne contains enough Chitosan to even achieve this effect. Furthermore, Chistosan is derived from shellfish and can trigger allergic reactions in those who suffer from them.
- It contains Phaseolus Vulgaris, a proven carb blocker.
- Carbozyne is a cheap alternative to other fat blocking supplements.
- Most of its ingredients have not been proven effective, especially in the doses likely included.
- There are no testimonials or scientific information available about Carbozyne.
- It only offers one mode of weight prevention (reducing carbs) so it is not suitable for dieters seeking a complete approach to weight loss.
One ingredient found in Carbozyne might help block carbohydrates from being fully absorbed, but there is no evidence showing it will completely prevent carbs from being absorbed. Dieters are advised to eat a healthful diet instead to prevent gaining weight. Carbozyne might offer some benefits during diet “cheat days”, but is not the best solution for combating weight gain.
