Absolute Nutrition C Block claims to inhibit the absorption of carbohydrates and reduce the craving for carbohydrates that a person has especially when they are dieting. It is said that blocking the absorption and consumption of carbohydrates can help a person lose weight. This review tests these claims by looking at particular features of this product.
- White kidney bean extract
White kidney bean extract helps a person to lose weight by blocking the absorption of any carbohydrates that they eat. It does this by inhibiting the enzyme responsible for the breakdown of carbohydrates. This enzyme is called amylase. Carbohydrates are one of the main contributors to the synthesis and storage of fat in the body so reducing their absorption results in a reduced fat storage.
Chromium and vanadium also help to reduce fat storage by increasing the sensitivity of cells to insulin so that they take up more sugar from the blood and use it for energy instead of storing it is fat.
The manufacturer suggests taking two capsules each day. Each capsule should be taken 15 minutes before a meal with a full glass 8 oz of water. The two capsules together provide a daily dose of 700 mg of white kidney Bean extract which is a little bit below the scientifically recommended dosage of 1000 mg. The dosage of chromium is also low at 200 micrograms instead of the recommended 1000 micrograms.
Absolute Nutrition C Block can be purchased online for $19.82 which gives 90 capsules. If customers purchase two packages together the cost is $18.83 per package, which is a 5% discount.

Absolute Nutrition C Block Review – Conclusion
The ingredients in this product are completely naturally derived and have a fair amount of scientific research to back them up. The price that the manufacturer offers this product at is quite reasonable too and they do offer a discount for buying multiple packages, which is a bonus.
However the dosage that they offer their ingredients at is below what was determined as effective by scientific research so there really is no way we can be certain this product will work. The other problem is that they don’t offer a guarantee so they instead shift the risk to their customer who will end up losing money for no beneficial results if the product does not work. The discounts that this manufacturer offers are also not as impressive as some of the other manufacturers’ discounts. We advise customers to explore some other carb blockers before making a final decision.
