Carb-cutting Enzyme Stopped By White Kidney Bean Extract


(I sell the powder which can be made into capsules using a capsule filler machine, which is much less expensive than buying the capsules already made)


You can also sprinkle the powder on your food. Or, blend with a liquid.


According to Science Daily, UCLA researchers reported that an extract in white kidney beans may stop carbohydrates from breaking down into sugars. Normally, a digestive enzyme in the body metabolizes starches into little pieces of sugars. White kidney bean extract is suggested to stop this process so the starches remain in the form of fibers. Fibers cannot be absorbed and therefore do not become body fat.



 Americans are getting fatter. In fact, more than 60 percent are overweight and 18 million have type 2 diabetes. It’s an epidemic that’s becoming more of a problem with each passing year. Now, a new discovery could help you shed those dangerous pounds and live a healthier life.


Pastas … breads … cereals … We know them well. And doctors say it’s carbs like these that are making us fat.


“The problem is that starches are broken down immediately into sugars. When starch breaks down into sugar, it stays in the bloodstream, but is eventually stored as fat,” Steven Rosenblatt, a family practice doctor in Los Angeles, tells DBIS.

But if you can’t bear to give up your favorite foods, there’s a new option. UCLA researchers have found an extract in white kidney beans may help the body stop carbs from breaking down into sugars.


“By lowering the amount of starches in our diet and the amount of carbohydrates in our diet, we allow the body to slowly start to burn off that stored energy,” says Rosenblatt. He with the bean extract, known as Phase 2, which is sold in pill form and is now even added to certain foods. Here’s how the extract works: A digestive enzyme in the body normally acts like scissors, literally cutting starches into little sugars. White Kidney bean extract stops the enzyme from cutting, so the starches stay in the body as long fibers and are burned off quicker — making losing weight and keeping a normal blood sugar much easier.


Doctors say patients in the clinical studies who took white kidney bean extract lost body fat, not lean muscle. The extract is not recommended for pregnant women or type one diabetics because their blood sugar could get too low. Mild nausea is the only known side effect. Nora Cosgrove’s struggled with her weight all her life. She admits to probably having been on every diet, but nothing worked. But when her doctor said she was on the fast-track to developing type 2 diabetes, she tried the extract.


After three months, she lost 30 pounds and six dress sizes! “I’m not tired anymore,” Cosgrove says. “That’s the main thing.”


Patients still need to watch what they eat and exercise. But at least they don’t have to give up carbs for good.


Recent research has shown the optimum time to take white kidney bean extract is just before a starch-rich meal along with 8 oz of water. However, the studies also showed that itcould still provide some of its starch “neutralizing” benefits when taken during, or just after, a starch-rich meal. One such study demonstrated that white kidney bean extract could remain effective when a capsule is opened and sprinkled onto food.




The purpose of taking white kidney bean extract is to reduce the absorption of carbohydrates, in effect creating an artificial low-carb diet. The most reported negative side effect associated with low-carb diets is ketosis, a metabolic disorder characterized by an accumulation of chemicals known as ketones, which are produced by the body as a byproduct of burning fat. High levels of ketones in the body can cause excessive excretion of sodium and water. People with ketosis tend to feel sluggish and tired. Less severe side effects associated with low-carb diets include constipation, gas and excess protein in the body. Excess protein creates more burden on the kidney, as the kidney needs to work harder to reabsorb the protein metabolites, and therefore may exacerbate any existing kidney medical conditions.




According to the HealthGuidance website, some people suffer from various minor side effects and discomforts such bloating, gas, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Usually the gastrointestinal symptoms are short-lived and mild. Also, white kidney bean extract may lower blood sugar, and therefore close monitoring of blood sugar is important for patients with diabetes or those who have just undergone surgeries. Not enough is known about the use of white kidney bean extract during pregnancy and breastfeeding, so it is recommended to avoid use during these times.
