Carb Neutralizer/Carb Controller with Chromium, Fiber & Prebiotics
120 grams Powder
The high quality ingredients in Dr. Bo's®, CarbStop™ Phase 2 Carb Controller have been shown to help reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches when used in a serving size not less than 1,000 mg and two servings per day. Bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice have long been an integral part of the diets around the globe. Defined as "starches," and often identified as high glycemic, these foods are best consumed in moderation, particularly for those who have a sedentary lifestyle.
Adding CarbStop to these favorite foods has been clinically proven to lessen their effect on blood sugar levels PLUS neutralizes their impact on caloric intake. Each serving has the potential to neutralize the digestion of 2,000-2,800 carb calories. So, insure the success of your weight loss program with this clinically tested, all-natural starch neutralizer extracted from a non-GMO crude bean powder.
CarbStop's advanced formula is further enhanced with digestive resistant fiber and prebiotics, including FOS and inulin, and also contains 50 mcg Chromium per serving. Some studies have shown that Chromium may reduce insulin resistance, although additional studies are required.

How It Works
CarbStop contains a clinically studied, all natural, non-stimulant starch neutralizer/carb controller extracted from crushed bean powder (Phaseolus vulgaris). CarbStop works in the intestinal tract by temporarily inhibiting the acton of a starch digestion enzyme, called alpha-amalyse. This is the enzyme that breaks down starch into sugar.
When CarbStop is taken prior to a carbohydrate meal it results in less starch being absorbed and a lower rise in blood sugar. The major source of carbohydrates in the U.S. diet is starch and Dr. Bo's Phase 2 bean extract significantly inhibits starch absorption. The central theory is that the digestion of carbohydrates begins with salivary amylase in the mouth and continues with pancreatic amalyse in the gut. The ability to neutralize these enzymes may assist in weight loss control.* The ability to neutralize these enzymes results in a decrease in the digestion of carbohydrates into mono and disaccharides, which are then absorbed in skeletal tissue after conversion to triglycerides and fatty acids.
Who Can Benefit?
Obesity is a dangerous and highly prevalent condition throughout the United States and much of the world. Approximately, 61% of the U.S. population is either overweight or obese. Obesity increases the risk of several co-morbidities, including degenerative arthritis, obstructive sleep apnea, dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and coronary heart disease. In addition, to health risks, obese individuals have a lower quality of life evaluation scores (SF12) than their non-obese counterparts.*
Fortunately, obesity is treatable and there is strong evidence that even modest weight loss (5% of body weight) significantly decreases the risk of these diseases, especially diabetes and cardiovascular disease. There are pharmaceutical treatments available for obesity, but the side effects are numerous including cardiac valvular disease, hypertension, seizures, sexual dysfunction and fecal incontinence.*
How Much CarbStop Do I Need?
Original in vitro research showed that one gram of bean extract (1,000 mg) is capable of neutralizing approximately 2,250 starch calories. However, through review of numerous clinical studies and research, convincing evidence is shown that due to genetic differences among individuals, different dietary habits, and metabolic differences, one gram neutralizes approximately 1,600 starch calories per one gram. The recommended serving size of 1/2 rounded teaspoon consists of 1,250 mg of Phase 2 (1.25 g of Phase 2 times 2,250 starch calories equals 2,813 starch calories times 70% is approximately a 2,000 starch calorie neutralization). CarbStop is most effective when taken two times per day and should be ingested prior to consuming starchy foods or a starchy meal.
