Carb Stopper Extreme is an over the counter weight loss supplement that is meant to make it possible for a dieter to shed the extra pounds more easily than is possible with unassisted dieting and exercise. The concept behind the claimed benefits regarding this diet pill is that it will help to promote the blocking of carb absorption from consumed foods, making it easier to adhere to a reduced carbohydrate diet.

There is one active ingredient in this pill. It is an extremely common substance in the nonprescription weight loss industry called white kidney bean extract. It is that ingredient that the site claims is responsible for the carb blocking action There have been some studies that have been conducted on this ingredient and while they are mostly considered to be preliminary, there have been some promising results that would suggest that this substance can help to stop the digestion of some of the carbs that are consumed by a dieter.

That said, what the studies have yet to conclusively show is whether or not this action is powerful enough to actually lead to weight loss. It is one thing to be able to block carb absorption, but it is something else to be able to do it to such a degree that it has a meaningful impact on caloric digestion and will then lead to weight loss.

Therefore, while it is true that Carb Stopper Extreme contains an ingredient that does likely function as a carbohydrate blocker, it cannot be said that it has been proven in published studies for having a direct link to fat loss from the body.

There are some positive customer testimonials on the official website for this product, but it is interesting to note that there are pictures of the people associated with the testimonials, and that a few of them appear to be photos that were taken in a studio, as they are in perfect lighting with a clean white background, and it is a picture of the head and shoulders of the people, with no clothing visible. While it may not be true that this is stock photography or models posing for the photos, it certainly gives that impression.

Carb Stopper Extreme is sold with a 90 day money back guarantee, within which time up to 1 opened and all other unopened bottles can be returned for a full refund of the purchase price. That said, the shipping will not be refunded for this product.

Body Perfect Kidney Bean is a nonprescription weight loss capsule product that is manufactured and sold by a company in the United Kingdom called Bio-Synergy Ltd. It is advertised on the official manufacturer’s website as being a “high strength formula” that will help its users to stop their bodies from absorbing some of the carbohydrates that they are consuming in their food.

The ingredients – though not their quantities – are listed on the webpage for the product on the official site. They reveal that the only active ingredient within this diet pill is kidney bean extract. The other ingredients are non-active and include the capsule shell, which is gelatin, as well as magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide.

This means that any benefit that could be obtained from Body Perfect Kidney Bean is based on the assumption that kidney bean extract will, indeed, not only be able to block some carbohydrates from being absorbed into the body, negating their impact on weight, but it also assumes that there will have been an effect that is large enough to actually generate measurable weight loss. After all, it is one thing to prove in a lab that this ingredient can act as a carb blocker, but it is something else to do this with such strength that it will have an impact on a dieter’s efforts to shed excess pounds.

To the credit of the manufacturer, it has taken the step to inform consumers that this pill is not a weight loss solution on its own. It provides specific advice that recommends visiting a general practitioner to ensure suitability and, if it turns out that this product is right for the individual, then it recommends using it as a part of a greater healthy lifestyle. This is very important as it may not be appropriate or safe for everyone, and popping this pill (or any pill for that matter) on its own will not cause weight to simply magically melt away.

It points out that weight loss can be hard work, but that by using this product, it will help to ensure that the best possible results will come from those efforts.

Unfortunately, it does not cite any scientific or medical studies that would suggest that it has any clinical foundation upon which to base its claims. Furthermore, research into the effectiveness of kidney bean extract in terms of measurable weight loss produced very few results, and among those that did exist, the research was typically small and/or inconclusive.

Activ8 X Diet Drops are a type of over the counter diet supplement that come in the form of a liquid instead of the traditional pill form such as capsules and tablets. This product was developed by AMAS Enterprises Ltd. It is a part of a growing category of formulas that are a liquid to be used one drop at a time, as a part of a larger alternative sector of the market that provides an option outside of pills. This is appealing to individuals who struggle to be able to swallow pills.

The effects promised by the official website for this product include carbohydrate blocking, metabolism boosting, fat burning, and appetite suppression. This is quite the ambitious list for one formula to be able to achieve. It is important to look into the formula in order to decide whether or not it could be possible for dieters to be able to achieve these benefits through Activ8 X.

At the time that this review was written, the official website listed the ingredients in this product as being: chromium, grapefruit powder, grape seed extract, panax ginseng, pyruvate, garcinia, beta alanine, green tea leaf extract and capsicum.

The first thing that should be noted by this formula is that it contains a large number of ingredients. When a product has more than a handful of substances in its formulation, it is usually very helpful to know the quantities in which they have been included to know for certain that there will be enough of any of them to actually produce the desired benefits. Unfortunately, the official website did not provide that additional information.

It should be noted that while there are two known fat burners in this formula – green tea leaf extract and capsicum – they are extremely low on the list so it is unclear whether or not they will be powerful enough to offer measurable benefits. Moreover, it is also worrying that the rest of the ingredients on this list are completely unproven as they have not been researched in any large published study that would be acceptable by the medical community.

For this reason, it is very difficult to believe that Activ8 X drops will be able to live up to the considerable list of benefits that it has promised on its official website. Therefore, it is hard to think of a good reason to recommend this product over a range of other options within this market that have a much better reputation and more scientific proof in their track record.

XLS Medical Carb Blocker review

XLS Medical Carb Blocker is a diet supplement that is geared at individuals who are trying to lose weight but who find it very difficult to be able to keep their intake of foods that are high in carbohydrates under control. This includes people who want to be able to eat pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, and other high carb foods in larger quantities.

This product is made in Europe. At the time of the writing of this review, a supply for one month would cost a dieter £51.51, which is quite pricey, particularly when compared with other products that contain similar ingredients within their formulations. Though there is some clinical evidence to support the claims that are made by the product’s manufacturers, they are very limited, which makes it difficult to justify such a high price tag.

The manufacturer, Omega Pharma, is based in Belgium. This company is a large one and it boasts a very positive reputation. It is also a very well known company after having its Quickstep pro cycling team competing within the Tour de France, including the celebrity cyclist, Mark Cavendish.

Each bottle contains 60 capsules, which lasts a startlingly small amount of time, 10 days, as the product needs to be taken at a rate of six capsules per day. The claims made about XLS Medical Carb Blocker – which is the newest product in the XLS lineup at the time of this review – are that it will help to shrink the body’s ability to absorb carbs, effectively negating some of their calories as they will pass through (and out of) the body with the rest of its waste.

The product is based on a patented ingredient called Phaselite, which is a derivative of the common bean called phaseolus vulgaris. This is a natural bean fiber which is manufactured by InQpharm, which is another pharmaceutical company. The substance is available only to the pharmaceutical industry and is the only active ingredient in XLS Medical Carb Blocker.

The manufacturer claims that it reduces the activity of the enzyme called alpha-amylase, which is responsible for metabolizing carbohydrates. Without as much of the enzyme, fewer carbs are absorbed by the body.

It should be noted that the official website does not reveal the amount of the substance within each pill and does not show that studies have proven that this amount is adequate to lead to any measurable amount of weight loss. In fact, the evidence that the substance works, at all, is very limited.

Carb Intercept Sprinkles

Natrol Carb Intercept Sprinkles seem like a method of losing weight that is much more fun than taking pills or fad diets. The real question to ask, then, is whether or not this product is actually safe and effective enough to make it worthwhile. Instead of popping pills, the concept behind the Natrol Carb Intercept Sprinkles is that you place them right onto the food you’ll be consuming to help manage the number of carbohydrates that are actually absorbed by your body. They are conveniently packaged so that they can travel anywhere with you, at home, at work, in a restaurant, or even on vacation when you go away from home.

Though the concept may seem appealing at first glance, there have been some customer reviews that have shown a downside to using a product that has to be sprinkled on food. The first complaint is that it doesn’t feel as medically sound and has a more “fad”-like association. Many customers also complained that while it seemed to be a good idea, whenever they were in public, it was embarrassing to shake the Natrol Carb Intercept Sprinkles all over their food. Though it is not the most subtle and discrete way of dieting, the up side is that people who struggle to swallow capsules find these easier to take.

Though the entire ingredient list was not available at the time of this review, the key ingredient in Natrol Carb Intercept Sprinkles was listed as Phase 2 Carb Controller, which is also known as white kidney bean extract (also known as Phaseolus Vulgaris). This is an ingredient that is commonly used in over-the-counter weight loss supplements because there is some clinical evidence that in the right dosage, it may allow for some carb blocking effects.

Related to this supplement, several unpleasant and undesirable side effects have been noted, including gas, cramping in the stomach, and diarrhea.

In terms of the actual form of the supplement of a sprinkle instead of a capsule, there truly aren’t any medicinal benefits to one over the other except that it may be easier for some to swallow the sprinkles if they struggle to take pills. The main ingredient is very common and there don’t seem to be any benefits except perhaps psychological ones for one over the other.

In order to decide what weight loss plan is best for you, whether sprinkles, pills, or anything else for that matter, it is best to speak with your doctor to ensure that it will be safe for your unique health needs and expectations.
