-As vegetarian dietary supplement to inhibit carbohydrate absorption, Carb-
Down is a unique combination of the Phase 2 brand starch neutralizer, Gymnema
sylvestre, and Chromemate brand chromium polynicotinate. Phase 2 starch
neutralizer is an extract from the white kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris).
Research shows that this extract can block the absorption of carbohydrates
(from starch) because it contains a protein component that inhibits the enzyme
alpha-amylase from breaking down carbohydrates from foods.* When this enzyme
is blocked, the starch thats eaten cannot be converted to fat.* In a recent
double-blind study in humans, Phase 2 starch neutralizer decreased the
percentage of caloric burden from complex carbohydrates by 60%.* The addition
of Gymnema sylvestre and Chromemate is to support appetite control and glucose
