Phase 2®, is a patented form of phaseolamin, an extract derived from white kidney beans, which has been shown to neutralize the starch found in foods like potatoes, breads, pasta, rice, corn and crackers. This is why Phase 2 is called a “carb blocker.” If your love for carbohydrate-rich foods has been an obstacle in your attempts to lose weight, this supplement may be able to help! Phase 2 also has been shown to help promote insulin sensitivity and maintain healthy triglyceride levels. Phase 2 blocks the activity of alpha amylase, a digestive enzyme that breaks down starch in your intestines, making it available for energy as glucose or for fat storage. When starch is not broken down, it simply passes through your system.
Research has shown that phaseolamin can help you achieve your weight loss goals without the use of dangerous stimulants or laxatives. In fact, studies have shown that taking Phase 2 can help you lose up to 10 times more weight than you might otherwise! In addition, Phase 2 has been shown to decrease body mass index and fat mass. According to Dr. Harry Preuss, a Georgetown University Professor who is one of the world’s authorities on the use of dietary supplements to combat obesity, large doses in animal studies have caused no harm, and there have been no harmful side effects in small clinical studies on people. In addition, no problems have been reported in the 10 years this product has been in the marketplace.
