This product, White Kidney Bean Extract by the manufacturer Arazo Nutrition, claims to slow the absorption of carbohydrates, preventing them from being broken down and converted to fat and sugar. Weight loss may be achieved by preventing carbohydrates from being digested. The manufacturer also claims that this product reduces hunger, and acts as an appetite suppressor. The following is a review on this carb blocker.
The only active ingredient is white-kidney-bean extract (600 mg). This extract prevents starches from being absorbed and converted to fat. White kidney beans are high in fiber; this also prevents cholesterol from being absorbed. Our research has found that the amount of the active ingredient in this formula is almost half that of other similar products on the market.
The other inactive ingredients are vegetable cellulose, rice flour, and magnesium stearate. The rice flour is a bulking agent, and offers no particular value.
The manufacturer does not state if the magnesium stearate is derived from a plant source or from an animal source.
The manufacturers claim that this product has no side effects. However, they also state that this product is not to be used by pregnant women, children, or people with a family history of liver, kidney, or even prostate disease, or those with a family history of endocrine conditions. In addition, anyone on prescription medication should first consult a doctor before taking this dietary supplement.
The manufacturer suggests that 3 capsules be taken twice daily with an 8-ounce glass of water, 20 to 30 minutes before the biggest daily meals. Alternatively, the capsules may be taken as a doctor suggests. No more than four capsules daily must be taken.
