Phase 2 Carb Blocker Review Whatsupp NutritionPhase 2 Carb Blocker is for weight management and is one of the fat loss supplements formulated by WhatSupp Nutrition. It contains the clinically studied ingredient, white kidney bean extract, and it claims to help people lose weight by blocking the body from digesting a portion of ingested carbs.

Each serving size (3 veggie capsules) of Phase 2 Carb Blocker contains 1.5 grams (1,500 mg) of Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer (White Kidney Bean Extract). The suggested use is to take one serving before any meal containing complex carbohydrates or starches, or as directed by a health care professional.

Phase 2 Carb Blocker’s single active ingredient is white kidney bean extract, also known as phaseolus vulgaris. The common belief is that this herb is a carb blocker, a compound that affects the digestive process and results in the absorption of less dietary carbohydrate.

More specifically, white kidney bean extract is thought to function as a type of alpha-amylase inhibitor. Amylase is a digestive enzyme that is in charge of digesting starch. By blocking this enzyme, it prevents it from digesting starchy carbohydrates, which means that these carbs are not broken down into glucose and are eliminated as waste by the body.

That being said, even if white kidney bean does have this effect, carb blockers only block complex carbohydrates. These include grains, vegetable and legumes. Carb blockers have zero effect on simple sugars because they do not need amylase to be digested. This means that they are ineffective on sugars found in fruit, milk, natural sweeteners, cakes, candy, etc.

While Phase 2 Blocker is correct in that it does contain a clinically studied ingredient, this ingredient has never been proven to lead to positive weight changes. More research needs to be conducted to know just how safe this herb is and how – or even if – it can benefit weight loss.

As for side effects, for the most part, white kidney bean is typically safe when taken as an oral supplement for the short term. The most common side effects are stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. That being said, it may lower blood sugar. Therefore, if you are pre-diabetic or a diabetic, this may not be the right product for you to take. This is also true if you are pregnant or nursing.

It is in your best interest to play it safe and talk to your healthcare provider before taking Phase 2 Carb Blocker.

No-Stim ReviewNo-Stim is marketed as a caffeine-free weight loss supplement from Addrena LLC. Designed for both men and women, it is non-stimulant fat burner meant to function as both a thermogenic and appetite suppressant to help with weight management. According to its Amazon sales page, it promises “slow, steady weight loss results over time in a safe way without stimulants.”

Taking dietary supplements that can help curb hunger can make it easier to stick to a calorie-controlled diet. As for one that encourages thermogenesis, this can be beneficial when combined with exercise to maximize fat burning potential.

That being said, the only way to really know if No-Stim can live up to claims is to take a look at the ingredients in this non-prescription weight loss formula.

When this No-Stim review was written, the ingredients included the following: Potassium Iodide, Hoodia Gordonii Stem Extract, Guggel-Oleo-Gum-Resin Extract, Saffron Bulb Extract, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, Selenium.

Unfortunately, none of these ingredients have ever been clinically proven effective for weight loss. In spite of this, there are still claims that have been made about each of them, and this may be why some of these ingredients may sound familiar to you.

For instance, hoodia gordonii is believed to help suppress appetite and the common story is that it has been used by South African tribesmen for centuries during long hunting trips to help stave off hunger.

Potassium iodide, on the other hand, is needed by the body to maintain proper thyroid function. Insufficient amounts of this mineral can lower metabolism, which may contribute to weight gain.

Selenium and guggulsterone are both believed to help support metabolism, saffron is believed to decrease appetite, lower cravings and give the mood a boost, while N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine may help thyroid function.

Although these do sound like wonderful benefits, without solid clinical evidence to prove that they can indeed be advantageous for weight management, there is no guarantee that they will be of any real assistance to those who take them.

On the plus side, No-Stim is true to one of its claims. It is a non-caffeine and stimulant-free dietary supplement. This may make it an ideal choice for anyone who is highly sensitive to stimulants or who simply wants to avoid them, and is interested in trying an over-the-counter (OTC) weight management product.

That being said, keep in mind that even though No-Stim is available without prescription and is stimulant-free, it’s still wise to speak with your healthcare provider before taking this supplement for weight loss or any other health reason, to make sure it is the right choice for you.

The recommended dosage is to take 1 tablet before meals, two times per days (a maximum of 2 tablets in 24 hours).

Daily Fit ReviewDaily Fit claims to be a stimulant-free fat burner that has been formulated to help you burn calories. It offers thermogenic fat burning support to help you stay lean and fit. It is manufactured by Optimum Nutrition and its primary active ingredients are L-Carnitine and Green Tea. Both of these ingredients are thought to help support metabolism and help you get the most out of your fat burning when combined with exercise.

More specifically, when this Daily Fit review was written, the formula contained the following ingredients per 2 capsule serving: Thiamin (3 mg), Riboflavin (3.4 mg), Niacin (12 mg), Vitamin B6 (4 mg), Folic Acid (200 mcg), Vitamin B12 (12 mcg), Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl (500 mg), Green Tea Extract (200 mg), Red Pepper Extract (65 mg), Black Pepper Extract (10 mg).

The suggested use is to take Daily Fit in the morning after meals. Other than this instruction on the official product page, no other directions, such as how many pills to take per day, etc.) are provided.

None of the above ingredients have ever been clinically proven effective or safe for weight loss or treating obesity. What’s more, Daily Fit is not stimulant-free as the manufacturer claims. It may be considered “non-stimulant” due to the low levels of caffeine in green tea but it is certainly not free of caffeine, which is a stimulant.

Although green tea certainly does not contain as much caffeine as coffee nor is the caffeine content of green tea extract as potent as caffeine anhydrous, caffeine still exists within it. For a company to claim that their product is “simulant-free” or to give the impression that it does not contain caffeine is simply untrue and irresponsible. It suggests that either the company is lying or that it does not know the difference between a product that contains caffeine and one that doesn’t.

Either way, this is a red flag for Daily Fit and the company behind it, Optimum Nutrition. If you are interested in taking a fat burning dietary supplement, there are better products available from far more reputable companies.

That being said, no matter what dietary supplement you might consider as part of your weight management regimen, always remember that it’s a good idea to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider. A professional medical opinion can be very useful in helping you find a product that is safe and provides you with the best weight loss support.

Dr. Tobias Colon 14 Day Quick Cleanse ReviewDr. Tobias Colon: 14 Day Quick Cleanse is a dietary supplement that has been designed to support detox, weight loss and increased energy levels. It is an advanced cleanse formula with herbal natural ingredients. Its primary function is to support digestive health and purification, as well as support healthy energy and weight loss.

When this review was written, per serving (1 capsule), the ingredients in the Dr. Tobias Colon: 14 Day Quick Cleanse included: Senna Leaf (142.5 mg), Cascara Sagrada Bark (150 mg), Psyllium Husk Powder (150 mg), Flaxseed Powder (50 mg), Aloe Vera Gel (40 mg), Lactobacillus acidophilus (25 mg), Licorice Root (25 mg), Medium Chain Tryglycerides Oil (7 mg).

Essentially, what this list of ingredients reveals is that this product contains natural laxatives, herbs and fibers. More specifically, Lactobacillus Acidophilus helps to promote healthy levels of bacteria in the intestines. Senna and Cascara Sagrada are well-known for their laxative capabilities. Aloe Vera is an herb believed to be a colon cleanser as well as a livef cleanser. Flax Seed and Psyllium Husk provide a bit of bulk to stool so that old fecal matter can be moved out of the colon.

Combined, these ingredients are meant to aid the intestinal tract by helping it free itself of excess waste, cleanse the body of toxins and helps to support bowel movements in a non-irritating way. It also helps to alleviate bloating and supposedly boosts energy.

Unlike the majority of dietary supplements that can aid with weight loss, Dr. Tobias Colon: 14 Day Quick Cleanse is meant to be used occasionally. It is not meant to be incorporated into your daily diet over the long term.

The directions are to take 1 or 2 capsules at bedtime with 8 ounces of water every day for a maximum of 14 days. Begin with 1 capsule at bedtime for the first 3-4 days, or as directed by your healthcare professional. It is recommended that you drink plenty of water throughout the day while you are doing this cleanse.

Once you have finished the cleanse, either by doing the full 14 days or less, and you would like to do it again, you should take a 6 to 8 week break before re-starting.

While it is highly likely that you will frequently urinate and have bowel movements while on this cleanse, there is absolutely no proof that any of these ingredients actually “cleanse” or “detox” your body. The reality is that your vital organs, such as your kidneys and liver, naturally detox your body all of the time. If you want to cleanse your body and flush toxins out of it, the best thing to do is improve your diet (eat more fiber), drink plenty of water, limit you salt and sugar intake, get proper sleep, and exercise.

As for weight loss, any weight you might lose on the Dr. Tobias Colon: 14 Day Quick Cleanse will be water weight, which you will promptly gain back, once this cleanse is over. No measureable fat loss will occur from taking this product.

Should you be interested in taking this product, be sure to consult with your doctor to make sure it is a safe and smart option for you. We do not consider Dr. Tobias Colon: 14 Day Quick Cleanse to be one of the top weight loss pills.

Apidren PM ReviewApidren PM is a caffeine-free dietary supplement designed to help you continue your fat burning and weight loss efforts, even while you sleep. It is made in the USA and comes from a company called NutriPharm. The company also produces a product called Apidren, It is common for many users, who are seeking 24-hour fat burning and other weight management benefits to take both the Apidren and Apidren PM products.

Apidren PM is free of stimulants, so you can take it at nighttime without worrying about it affecting your sleep. Furthermore, in addition to being designed to aid in weight loss while you sleep, the products ingredients may also help you obtain a more restful slumber.

When this review of Apidren PM was written, it was composed of the following ingredients: Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Chromium, GABA, Irvingia Gabonensis, Magnolia Bark Extract, Pellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Melatonin, LactoSpore.

The suggested use is to take 2 capsules with 8 – 12 ounces of water approximately 1 – 2 hours before bedtime. Users are cautioned not to drive or operate heavy machinery when taking Apidren PM.

Essentially, the mixture of herbs that make up the Apidren PM formula may help regulate blood sugar levels, burn fat, breakdown fat and help the body relax.

That being said, it is highly unlikely that you will experience measureable fat loss from taking Apidren PM. The reason is that no matter if it helps you burn or breakdown fat, the only way to shed pounds is by combining a healthy calorie-conscious diet with regular exercise. You’re not going to be burning tons of fat while you’re immobile and sleeping.

That being said, one way that Apidren PM may be able to benefit some people is by helping them to get a more restful sleep. If this product does manage to do this (keeping in mind that it has never been studied or proven to be effective in this way), it could be beneficial to your overall health and weight loss goals. The reason is that regular restful sleep can improve your health and benefit your weight loss goals by helping you maintain a high-functioning metabolism.

Prior to taking Apidren PM, it is strongly recommended that you first run your intentions to do so by your healthcare provider to make sure this is a safe option for you. This is especially important if you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition or are currently taking medication.

BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea Review

BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea is an over the counter supplement that is taken in the form of a beverage instead of a pill like a capsule or tablet. This product is meant to help dieters who are trying to lose weight but at the same time, it is also geared toward individuals who are seeking a better fitness level, as well.

This product is sold on a number of different websites, but at the time this review was written, its own official website or a page on an official manufacturer website could not be located. This makes it rather difficult for a consumer to be able to inform him or herself about the product through the manufacturer’s own information. That said, for the purposes of this review, information was gleaned from what was shared on retailer and online market websites where the product was being sold.

According to the product description used for BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea on Amazon.com, a user of this product will be able to improve his or her weight loss efficiency by “flushing fats and toxins.” That said, it does not make any additional effort to explain what that means or how it is meant to happen as a result of the ingredients in the product. The description also states that using it promotes a healthy digestive system. Again, aside from the claim itself, no additional information or explanation is provided.

This product’s description suggests that either it is meant to work as a fat blocker product or it reflects a rather strange lack of understanding of the way fat loss works in the body. If that fats that it claims to help a person flush are dietary fats found in foods, it means that the product claims to include ingredients that stop the body from absorbing some dietary fat from consumed foods, causing it to travel through the body and head out with the waste, undigested.

On the other hand, if it is claiming that fats stored on the body are somehow detaching and are entering the digestive tract only to be flushed away, then it is a strongly deceptive statement and should not be believed at all.

Unfortunately, the description did not contain a full list of the ingredients in this product. It identified only senna leaves, which are known to work as a type of laxative. Laxatives do not promote fat loss. Instead, they produce only temporary weight loss by causing water loss and relieving constipation. The weight soon returns once the body is rehydrated.

Ideal Protein’s Ideal Complete ReviewIdeal Protein’s Ideal Complete is a meal replacement product designed to be used on its own or as a part of the broader Ideal Protein weight loss system. This is a part of a sizeable category of products that use meal replacement products to ensure that dieters reduce their daily calorie intake.

To use this option to its fullest potential, dieters must choose several products along with Ideal Complete and must use the website, group meetings and solo dieting coach sessions to obtain a “smarter eating education.” In this way, they will be controlling their calories as they learn, and once they’re done learning, they will know how to reduce their daily calories without needing to entirely rely on the meal replacements.

Ideal Protein’s Ideal Complete comes in three possible drink flavors or a bar. The flavors of the drink are chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. The bar is a toffee and pretzel flavor. These products are meant to be used to replace whole food meals in order to ensure that a dieter keeps within a certain daily calorie range.

Unfortunately, these products are quite expensive and there is next to no information provided about them on the official website. The site is attractively designed and features large images of appealing-looking products. However, aside from brief statements such as “Spoil yourself with our sumptuous strawberry flavoured meal replacement drink,” and pointing out that the product is gluten-free, no other information is provided about them.

At the time of the writing of this review, no list of ingredients could be located on the official website. This makes it very difficult for dieters to be able to make an educated decision about whether or not they would like to choose the Ideal Complete product line for their own weight loss needs.

It is also important to note that if these products are used as a part of the program, the clinics are known to be extremely strict. In fact, there are several reports online from customers who have said that they were discharged from the programs after having admitted that they cheated on the rules. The program does not accept returns and will not issue refunds.

Considering the high cost, the lack of information provided to the dieter and the fact that it is extremely strict – and strict diets have a lower long-term success rate – it is unlikely that this product or program would be recommended by most doctors.

Nopalina Review

Napolina is a type of diet supplement pill that claims to help a user to become more healthy and to shed excess weight with greater ease. This is a product based on a fiber complex of both soluble and insoluble fiber, in addition to omega fatty acids (3, 6 and 9).

The official product website offers a limited amount of information regarding what the pills actually contain and what each of the identified substances are meant to do for a user. For example, some of the claims that are made about Napolina – such as supporting improved cardiovascular health – are based on studies suggesting that eating an adequate quantity of dietary fiber is good for the heart. However, the claims and the research mentioned in the marketing on the website are not actually specific to this product or any of the substances making up its formula.

That type of marketing tactic seems somewhat dubious as it leads customers to believe that there is research on the product – or at least some of the ingredients that comprise it – when there may not be any research backing these substances or the complete formula at all. With a marketing strategy such as this one, it’s always wise for a consumer to stay on his or her toes and carefully conduct his or her own research before purchasing the pills or using them.

The majority of the claims made about Napolina are general statements that could be made regarding any source of dietary fiber, from breakfast cereal to fruits and vegetables. That said, it should also be pointed out that many studies have pointed out that taking fiber through supplementation is not the same as obtaining it in food. Many fiber supplements are associated with a range of side effects and unwanted problems. Among the most problematic can be the dependency the body can form on fiber supplements. The body can come to depend on fiber supplements in order to be able to maintain its bowel function regularity. It is not uncommon for a person who stops the use of a fiber supplement to experience constipation, bloating, and a range of other uncomfortable and undesirable symptoms.

As there are no relevant studies about Napolina or its ingredients cited on the product’s official website, it is unclear whether these pills or their ingredients are linked with any of the problems frequently experienced through the use of fiber supplementation. Therefore, while there is the possibility that it could potentially provide the body with the same kind of benefits as ingesting dietary fiber through food, there is no way of confirming that from a scientific or medical perspective.

Nature's Way Curica Turmeric ReviewNature’s Way Curica Turmeric is a natural supplement product meant to help people who are trying to live a more active lifestyle for better health or weight management. This product is geared specifically toward easing the pain that can occur from overextension during a fitness routine or other physical workout.

While Nature’s Way Curica Turmeric is not meant to help dieters directly with weight loss, it can play a helpful role in making sure the exercise component of the weight loss strategy is an effective one.

This particular formula is based on the curcuminoids found within turmeric, but it has been carefully designed to ensure that they are bioavailable. The reason is that the benefits of turmeric may have considerable potential, but the substance can be difficult for the body to absorb. Therefore, choosing products or forms of the ingredient that are more bioavailable – that is, that the body will absorb more readily – is quite important.

One serving of Nature’s Way Curica Turmeric is two capsules. These two capsules contain 600 mg of theracurmin (which is the enhanced bioavailability version of the turmeric rhizome complex). That ingredient is 30 percent curcuinoide, offering 180 mg of that substance. The package directions suggests that you take 2 capsules per day, but if you’re unsure, it’s always wise to speak to a doctor about the right dose for your specific needs and expectations.

The supplement is based on turmeric. This is a commonly used spice that finds its way into many foods in several parts of the world. It is bright yellowy orange and tastes somewhat like mustard. That said, it has also been used medicinally for hundreds of years. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to explain why it has been used for conditions such as joint pain and arthritis, stomach pain, heartburn, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, high cholesterol, headaches, colds, lung infections, irritable bowel syndrome, skin inflammation, fibromyalgia and many others that are related to swelling and pain. It is also believed that regular consumption of this ingredient may help to reduce the risk of some cancers.

For people who are exercising, this type of product may be helpful because of the anti-inflammatory properties, as well. It can help to overcome pain and discomforts after an intense workout, during the time that the muscles are recovering. That said, this is not meant to be used for the treatment of chronic pain or as a treatment for an actual injury unless directed to do so by a doctor.

She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement ReviewThe She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement is one of several products sold under the She Supps brand. This particular product is a product meant to be consumed as a shake instead of a major meal. The idea behind this product is to provide the user with a nutritious meal with only a limited number of calories. In this way, a dieter may be able to lose more weight.

The official webpage for this product on the She Supps website claims that it provides users with a balanced carbohydrate to high quality protein ratio as well as a number of essential nutrients. They are all delivered in what it claims to be an easy to mix and delicious shake beverage.

This product is vegetarian friendly, low in fat and easy to store or bring with you when you travel or commute. That said, it does contain both dairy and gluten ingredients, so people with those dietary sensitivities may want to choose a different product. The manufacturer of this product was careful to label the product with those potential allergens in order to ensure that consumers can inform themselves.

The idea behind this product is that dieters can drink it instead of a full meal. It is convenient to prepare and to consume and is meant to offer an experience similar to drinking a “gourmet” milkshake using natural flavors. It is also designed to use protein to help reduce hunger while providing complex carbohydrates – for example, micronized oat flour – to ensure the user has the energy he or she needs to get through the day. Beyond that, the multivitamin complex provides the body with nutrition.

To use this product, the package directions recommend adding 2 scoops (the equivalent to 20 grams) of the product powder to a blender or shaker cup along with 300 milliliters (10 ounces) of water or milk. To give things a different edge, the package also recommends trying this shake with some fresh fruit or ice.

The She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement is sold in four different flavors: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and banana. Each jar contains 30 servings, which is a one month supply for a user replacing one meal per day.

At the time this review was written, the She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement ingredients were: Protein Blend (Whey Protein Concentrate (Milk), Soya Protein Isolate, Milk Protein), Dextrose Monohydrate, Oat Flour, Waxy Maize Starch, Multivitamin Premix, Flavouring, Colouring, Stabilisers, Sweetener: Sucralose. Each serving provides 177 calories, 19.38 grams of carbs, 6.28 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein and 17 grams of sugar.
