Is Carb Blocking Safe
If you’re looking into weight loss, one thing to know about is carbohydrate blocking supplements. One in particular is C-Plex 60. Here are some facts about carb blocking that may help you find out if it is a safe way to lose weight and how well or bad it works.
The that this type of weight loss supplement works is by keeping your body from digesting a certain amount of carbohydrates (about 60%-70%) from turning into fat or triglycerides. Now you may want to know what happens with the undigested carbohydrates. The digestive system will treat undigested calories as garbage and won’t take in the nutrients or calories from the food. This means you just pass it in a bowel movement.
The way that C-Plex 60 works and other diet pills similar to this is by using a substance to inhibit an enzyme in your body called alpha amylase from turning food into energy or glucose. Phaseolus vulgaris is the substance that can neutralize the amylase before it starts breaking down carbohydrates. Some of the carbs get blocked but not all of them.
In theory we have now shown how carb blockers work, however we need to find out if it works in the real world. There is a lot of research and studies that have been done to show this method of weight loss does work if taken as instructed. One study showed that 40 obese individuals were given a carb blocker similar to C-Plex 60 and 40 were given a sugar pill. Both groups maintained the same eating habits and the group with the diet pill lost an average of 7.7 pounds. The placebo group only lost an average of 2.6 pounds. This amount of weight loss is healthy and safe.
