Carbohydrate (starch) blockers are an exciting new nutritional supplement. Here's how they work:

During the digestive process, your body converts carbohydrates - found in starchy foods such as potatoes, bread, and pasta - into sugar by breaking down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme produced in the pancreas. These sugar calories are then either burned off through exercise or stored in fat cells for future use. Inactivity means that these stored fat cells increase in size, which results in weight gain.

The all natural nutritional starch blockers' ingredients are extracted from white kidney beans, which neutralize some of the digestive enzyme alpha amylase before it can convert starch into sugar and then fat. The white bean extract has been clinically shown to delay the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, while also reducing the glycemic index and caloric intake of starchy foods. Essentially, it allows some of the starch carbohydrates to pass through the system with less caloric intake.

In addition to the white bean extract, L-arabinose, a carbohydrate found naturally in foods such as beets and corn, blocks the activity of gastrointestinal enzyme sucrase, whose job is to break sucrose down into glucose and fructose. If sucrose cannot be broken down into glucose and fructose, then it cannot be easily absorbed. If it cannot be absorbed, it cannot turn into fat. In other words, if the enzyme sucrase is blocked from converting sucrose into glucose and fructose, sucrose cannot be absorbed, and is essentially rendered harmless.

Green Tea Leaf Extract, Apple Extract, and Hibiscus Flower Extract, have all been reported to impede the gastrointestinal absorption of starch.
