What You Should Know
C Block is marketed as a weight loss product that has been specially designed to help those who are following a low carbohydrate diet to lose weight. C Block apparently stops cravings for carbohydrates, which the distributors claim is one of the reasons those following a low-carb diet are sometimes unsuccessful in losing weight. Who hasn’t been tempted to have another piece of bread at a restaurant? Also according to the distributors, C Block inhibits the conversion of carbohydrates into fat, which helps weight loss if it is used in conjunction with a low fat diet. The ingredients in C Block apparently help to inhibit the digestive enzyme alpha-amylaze. Alpha-amylaze is the last stop for breaking down carbohydrates, and prevents the conversion of fat into sugar. Fat is stored in the body when sugar is converted into carbohydrates.
List of Ingredients
The ingredients in C Block include Chromium, Vanadium, White Kidney Bean Extract, Dicalcium Phosphate, and Phaseolus Vulgaris.
The ingredient white kidney bean extract was featured in a double blind placebo controlled study and has been shown to decrease starch absorption without any toxicity. Chromium and Vanadium can together help control blood sugar level and therefore may stop excessive fat building up in the body, particularly following carbohydrate meals. C Block is priced at $16.95 for forty-five tablets. Those distributing the product state that two tablets should be taken with water fifteen minutes before each meal.
- The distributors are honest and do state that it has not been approved by the Food and Drugs Administration.
- C Block appears to be easy to obtain online.
- It is wheat and gluten free, which means those who have a gluten or wheat intolerance may be able to tolerate this product.
- There is no actual clinical evidence offered that proves that C Block can help procure weight loss.
- Some users can find following a low-carb or no-carb diet to be very difficult, and that is the only condition under which C Block will work.
- Product does not contain stimulants or appetite suppressants.
- Product return policy is unclear.
C Block and its distributors do have some points in their favor when compared to other weight loss products. The distributors categorically state that it has not been approved by the Food and Drugs Administration. Unlike a number of other weight loss products it does not contain a large number of stimulants, in fact it contains no stimulants. Our main problem with this product is that those who strictly follow a low carbohydrate diet often lose weight naturally. This means that if this product is taken by someone diligently following a low carbohydrate diet and the result is weight loss, there is no hard evidence to suggest that it is C Block itself which has actually procured the weight loss. Low-carb diets can be very difficult for many dieters, making us question the probability of success that a user might have with C Block.
