Ingredients & How it Works

Key Ingredient:

  • White Kidney Bean Extract

White Kidney Bean Extract is known to act as a starch blocker inhibits the amylase which turns the starch consumed into sugar which may then be absorbed.

As per clinical/scientific research and to provide effective results, Chromium (used for weight loss, to increase muscle, and decrease body fat, improve athletic performance, to increase energy, and to prevent age-related mental decline), and Chitosan (used to treat obesity, high cholesterol, and Crohn's disease including, anemia, loss of strength and appetite, and insomnia) should be included in the ingredients.

Other Ingredients:

  • Gelatin
  • Cellulose
  • Stearic Acid Vegetable Source
  • Magnesium Stearate Vegetable Source
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Natural Mineral Whitener

Cellulose is used as an excipient in the pharmaceutical industry. Vegetable stearic acid
Is used as an emulsifying agent, solubilizing agent, tablet and capsule lubricant. Vegetable magnesium stearate is used as an anti-caking agent adsorbent disintegrant or glidant to allow powder to flow freely when tablets are manufactured.

Magnesium Stearate poses as a contaminant and may impede nutrient absorption.

It has been proven clinically that there be no artificial ingredients present in the formula, as it might hinder results.

Our Review Summary of GNC Live Well Phase 2 Carb Controller

This product does offer the consumer a good guarantee and it seems to be affordable and easily obtainable to the consumer. However, due to the facts that there are clinically proven key ingredients lacking in this supplement, there are artificial ingredients in the supplement which may hinder results, and the recommended daily serving is much higher than specified by clinical studies, do we find that this product might be ineffective and may cause an overdose. The fact that the manufacturer does not bother to list the benefits or educate the consumer about how this product actually works is another downside. manufacturers should take the effort to explain to its potential customers why this product stands out from the rest.
