carb blocker for diabetes

Should I use a carb blocker for diabetes?

Carb Blockers have become increasingly popular recently as a way to help reduce sugar intake and lower the risk of blood sugar spikes.

But how exactly do Carb Blockers work, and are they really an effective tool to use against diabetes?

Lets discuss exactly what Carb Blockers are, the science behind how they work, and whether or not you should incorporate them into your every day routine.

What Is A Carb Blocker?

A Carb Blocker is a supplement that interferes with the digestion of carbs and by doing so, reduces the sugar that enters your bloodstream.

These supplements are popular because they allow you to enjoy carb-heavy "cheat foods" without big spikes in blood sugar levels.

Usually when carbs are eaten your digestive system breaks them apart and turns them into glucose, which is sugar. This glucose causes blood sugar to rise.

A Carb Blocker interferes with this process, allowing you to enjoy those delicious carb-heavy foods, without the guilt.

The Science Behind Carb Blockers

While a pill that "blocks" carbs may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, there is actually a significant amount of research behind these miraculous supplements.

The main ingredient, Phase II Carb Controller, has been studied extensively and has been clinically shown to reduce the digestion and absorption of dietary starches by as much as 66%.

Normally when you eat carbohydrates your body produces an enzyme called "amylase" which finds the carbs and breaks them down into sugar.

Carb Blockers interfere with this enzyme, which allows as much as 66% of these starchy carbs to pass through your digestive system without being turned into glucose.

This means that if you were to eat a sandwich with 45g of carbs, your body might only digest about 15g of them. The other 30g (or 66%) would pass through your digestive system without being turned into harmful glucose.

Are Carb Blockers Effective For Diabetes?

The short answer is: YES!

At its core, diabetes is just chronically high blood sugar levels. If you can reduce your blood sugar, you can reduce the effects of diabetes and in some cases even put it into remission.

Dozens and dozens of clinical studies have all shown that a low carb diet is a highly effective way to lower blood sugar levels.

The reason these diets work is because carbs are digested and turned into sugars, and these sugars raise blood sugar levels.

Less carbs, less sugars.

Carb Blockers work in exactly the same way. They can effectively reduce up to 66% of starchy carbs from being turned into sugars.

The effect of this is that you can enjoy the benefits of a low-carb diet, without actually following a super strict low-carb diet.

Now don't get us wrong, we still advocate that you eat less carbs and do what you can to naturally lower blood sugar, but Carb Blockers can be a great tool when you know that carbs are going to be on the menu.
