How do carb blockers work?
Carbohydrate blockers work by inhibiting the enzyme alpha-amylase that breaks down and digests complex carbohydrates. These are molecularly made up of many simple carbs linked together in a chain. These complex carbs have to be broken down into glucose by enzymes before they are then able to be absorbed and used, or the excess stored as fat.
When you take a carb blocker though, the enzyme is temporarily blocked, allowing the complex carbohydrates to pass through your system undigested. This means that they are not converted into glucose and therefore not stored as fat. They also do not contribute any calories or raise blood sugar levels. It still allows however, for the ‘good’ simple carbohydrates to be digested properly. As a result, you still receive the benefit and nutrition of the ‘good’ carbs, but not the ‘bad’ ones - a win-win situation!
Some may think though that if they begin taking a carb blocker supplement that they can eat as many complex carbs as they like. Taking one of these supplements doesn’t allow you to overindulge on your favourite pastas and breads, but it does allow you to manage and control your carbohydrate intake as well as allow you to have the occasional treat without the guilt.
