Taking Pure Advantage Carbs Away (Carbohydrate Blocker) prior to enjoying a high-carb meal may block 35% to 40% of carbs from starch. An active ingredient in Carbs Away, White Kidney Bean, was recommended on the Dr. Oz show as very effective in controlling weight gain.
During the digestive process the body converts carbohydrates found in starchy foods, such as breads, potatoes, rice and pasta, into sugar. Your body does this by breaking-down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme that is produced in the pancreas. Carbs Away can help inhibit the alpha amylase enzyme before it can convert starch into glucose and then fat. Theoretically, it allows the carbohydrates to pass through the system with less caloric intake.
Carbohydrates are used by the body as fuel, but over-consumption of carbs can lead to serious weight problems. Energy is dependent on two forms of carbohydrates, starch and sugars. These are initially broken down into an easily digestible form called glucose. The body uses most of its glucose as fuel. The rest is stored in energy cells as glycogen. These cells have glycogen reserves, similar to tanks. Once these tanks are full, excess glycogen is converted into fat by the liver. The liver builds fat for a simple reason: dietary intake exceeds the body's energy expenditure. In other words, the body takes in more fuel than it can use, so the body stores the energy as fat. What does this mean? If you eat meals containing large amounts of carbohydrates, then some of this fuel will be converted into fat.
