CarbSense - Carb-to-Glucose Inhibitor
Neutralizes Digestion of Complex Carbohydrates to Accelerate Weight Loss

Step 2 in the Smart Weigh System, CarbSense reduces the digestion and glucose conversion of complex carbohydrates.

If you have been on a calorie restricted diet for more than two days, you know how difficult it can be to avoid, or even reduce, the amount of complex carbs in your daily menu.

It becomes more confusing when the "experts" confess you must have some starchy foods in your diet, because if you eat too few carbohydrates, you risk lowering serotonin levels and depressing your mood, which can in turn cause binge temptations for fatty and sugary foods to help satisfy your cravings. Avoiding complex carbohydrates also means that an important nutritional component of a healthy diet that adds dietary fiber, B-vitamins, and trace elements may be missing.

With CarbSense, you can eat pasta, bread, rice, potatoes, and other complex carbohydrates as part of a balanced diet.

CarbSense contains Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer®, a natural, non-stimulant component of the Smart Weigh System for weight management that allows you to eat complex carbohydrates, yet limit the calorie contribution of those foods.

Phase 2® is an all natural extract from the white kidney bean, Phaseolus vulgaris L., which is supported by a substantial body of competent and reliable scientific evidence, including 14 clinical investigations, proving CarbSense may reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches.

Two capsules of CarbSense at least twice a day, taken before starchy meals or a snack, may assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program.

Features & FAQs

What is CarbSense?

CarbSense is a dietary supplement containing a unique natural botanical extract that helps to safely neutralize calories from starchy foods and is a valuable addition to a healthy weight management program.

What is the active ingredient in CarbSense?

Phase 2®, the active ingredient in CarbSense, is a concentrated extract manufactured through a proprietary process from non-GMO white kidney beans. Phase 2® is a standardized, all-natural, non-stimulant starch-neutralizer and is the first starch neutralizing product proven to be effective in human studies.

How does CarbSense work?

During the digestive process, the body converts complex carbohydrates, found in starchy foods such as breads, potatoes, pasta, and rice, into sugar. This is accomplished by breaking down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme produced in the pancreas and, to a lesser extent, in the saliva. The resultant sugar molecules are either burned off through exercise, or stored as fat for future use. Unfortunately, inactivity means that the stored fat accumulates over time. The result is weight gain. The active ingredient in CarbSense “neutralizes” the digestive enzyme alpha amylase before it can convert starch into sugar and then into fat. Essentially, it allows carbohydrates to pass unchanged through the digestive tract, thus reducing the amount of calories absorbed from this source.

Are there any studies showing that CarbSense works?

Testing by an independent laboratory utilizing a modified USP test method in a controlled test tube experiment, showed that Phase 2® neutralizes 2,250 starch calories per gram – equivalent to over one pound of pasta. Phase 2® survives undiluted gastric and intestinal solutions thus preserving its action on alpha amylase in the intestinal tract. Mayo Clinic studies of a similar extract to Phase 2® demonstrated efficacy and safety in animals with a clear mechanism of action. Human studies have shown that Phase 2® can block up to approximately 57 to 85% of the calories derived from complex carbohydrates.

Are there any human weight loss studies with CarbSense?

One study on 60 healthy human subjects, male and female, aged 20-45 years, who were 12 to 33 pounds overweight, showed that 500 mg of Phase 2® taken before a high starch meal produced an average weight loss of 6.5 pounds after 30 days with a 11.63% reduction of fat body mass, preservation of lean muscle mass, and a 3.44% reduction of waistline, a 1.39% reduction of hips circumference, and a 1.44% reduction of thigh circumference. A second study at Northridge Hospital in Los Angeles on 50 healthy overweight subjects consuming 1,500 mg of Phase 2® with a starch-rich meal, lost 129% more weight compared to placebo at the end of the 8 week study. Waist circumference was 36% more reduced and energy levels 27% higher in individuals taking Phase 2®. No adverse side effects were reported in either study. Additional clinical studies are currently underway to determine the long-term benefit of Phase 2® after 3 to 12 months of use.

What is the recommended dose?

It is recommended that individuals take one to two capsules of CarbSense with each starch-rich meal.

When is the best time to take CarbSense?

CarbSense should be taken with meals. Although CarbSense works best when taken with a meal containing starchy foods such as pasta, bread, crackers, rice, potatoes, and baked goods, it can be taken with any meal if desired.

How much weight can you expect to lose per week with CarbSense?

Based on two independent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies on 110 human subjects, male and female, individuals can expect to lose an average of 0.75 to 1.5 pounds per week when taking 500 to 1,500 mg of Phase 2® either before or with each starch-rich meal. One significant benefit is that the weight loss comes from the body’s fat stores with lean muscle mass being preserved. Individuals also show modest reduction in waist measurements and often report an increase in perceived energy level.

Are there any negative side effects of CarbSense?

Few, if any, side effects have been observed – even at high doses. There have been a few reports of flatulence likely related to the increased fiber content in the lower colon representing the undigested carbohydrates. The addition of fennel seed powder in CarbSense is a natural way to reduce these occasional gastrointestinal events. There are no known interactions of Phase 2® with any medications.

How does CarbSense affect the digestion of other food components?

Phase 2® does not interfere with the normal digestion of proteins or fats nor does it block the absorption of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or essential fatty acids. It selectively “neutralizes” the action of alpha amylase which is specific for the digestion of carbohydrates.

What affect does CarbSense have when desserts or other sweets are eaten?

CarbSense will only act on the complex carbohydrate portion of these foods, not the sugar content. Although there is some starch in cakes, cookies, pie crust, and other baked items from their flour content, the sugar calories from these foods will still be available for absorption.

Who should take CarbSense?

CarbSense can be safely taken by all individuals wishing to achieve a more optimal body weight. When added to a program of diet and moderate exercise, CarbSense can be expected to produce more significant weight loss benefits in individuals who are significantly overweight than in those wishing to achieve minimal weight loss. However, CarbSense may be an important adjunct to the maintenance of optimal body weight.

What effect does CarbSense have on blood sugar levels?

Studies with Phase 2® on healthy individuals have shown no adverse effect on resting blood glucose levels. By preventing the conversion of complex carbohydrates into glucose, Phase 2® reduces the amount of glucose available for absorption following a carbohydrate-rich meal, thus helping to avoid excessive blood sugar levels.

Have any safety or toxicity studies been performed on CarbSense?

An independent toxicity study on an earlier version of the Phase 2® extract showed that there were no impairments of health or organ pathologies observed in test animals consuming as much as 50% of their diet from white bean extract. Further, the treated animals were characterized by lower average body weights compared to the placebo controls even though the treated animals consumed significantly more food. This suggests an effective inhibition of weight gain.

Are any diet changes recommended for individuals taking CarbSense?

For best results, it is recommended that individuals adopt a more balanced diet and participate in regular exercise such as walking for 20-30 minutes three days each week. With CarbSense, individuals can continue to eat the foods they enjoy without all of the starch-derived calories.
