Carb Intercept with Phase 2 Overview
The may be more than one way to cut body fat and weight, but one thing everyone agrees on is that you absolutely have to control your carb intake. That means eliminating or rationing breads, pasta, potatoes, pizza, white rice and other foods - a nearly impossible proposition for many people. But even for those that do have the willpower, it's nice to be able to enjoy those foods without feeling guilty or sabotaging the results of all your exercise and dieting.
Carb blockers like Natrol's excellent Carb Intercept with Phase 2 are finally gaining the popularity they deserve. Carb Blockers aren't a complete weight-loss solution in and of themselves, but they do give you flexibility and consistency on your low-carb regimen. Carb Intercept uses the best-known Carb Blocker ingredient, Phase 2 is produced from a white kidney beans. Phase 2 blocks the enzyme (alpha amylase) that digests starches into sugar. It therefore prevents starchy carbs from ever being converted to more body fat. Natrol has also added bioavailable chromium to Carb Intercept. This mineral is very hard to get from your diet, but plays a crucial role in enabling your body to use insulin more efficiently. That may not sound very exciting, but efficient insulin metabolism really goes hand in hand with the low carb concept and why it's effective. That's probably why although there are dozens of Phase 2 Carb Blockers on the market, Natrol's Carb Intercept is getting very popular. It couldn't be easier to use, just 2 capsules 20-30 minutes before a meal, with a glass of water.
