Carb Tek contains the active ingredients white bean protein, gymnema sylvestre extract, fenugreek and a blend of “lite n’ lean” (alpha lipoic acid, Korean ginseng, green tea extract, L-carnithine).
White Bean protein (phaseous vulgaris) is useful in controlling food consumption, body weight, lipid accumulation and glycemia. There are two main mechanisms of action it achieves this:
It contains an inhibitor of alpha-amylase, the enzyme responsible for carbohydrate digestion. Inhibition of alpha amylase results in reduced carbohydrate metabolism and absorption, essentially reducing the available caloric content of starchy foods.
It modulates the activity of cholecystokinin and glucagon- like peptides, resulting in a reduced appetite.
Gymnema Sylvestre is a wood climbing shrub native to India and Africa. It’s weight loss effects are due in part to its appetite-suppressing effects and its ability to decrease the absorption of glucose from the intestines. There is also some evidence that Gymnema may also have some diuretic properties.
Recommended Dosage: 3 capsules 15 minutes before 2 meals with 8 ounces of water. Do not exceed 6 capsules in a 24-hour period.
