Carbozyne Reviews

Carbozyne is a nonprescription weight loss pill product that is manufactured by a company called PowerNutra International, which is an American company that produces a number of different supplements into this marketplace and many others in the health and beauty product market. It is advertised as being an all natural dietary supplement that blocks carbs and fats.

The key to the effects that the manufacturer claims the product to have are a result of two primary ingredients within the formulation: phaseolus vulgaris (white kidney bean extract) and chitosan (from shellfish – so people with shellfish allergies should avoid this product). Those all natural substances will, according to PowerNutra, block carbohydrates and fats from being able to be absorbed into the body, negating their effects and their calories on bodyweight.

As this product is a blocker, it does not actually offer any benefits for weight loss. That is, if this pill was taken on its own, then the body would not simply burn away fat and lose weight. Instead, it would have to support other efforts of reduced calorie dieting and increased daily exercises to have any impact on weight loss at all.

While fat blockers are gaining a great deal of hype in the nonprescription dieting environment, there are some facts that should be understood to show how Carbozyne may be more marketing than actual benefits. At the same time, there may also be some areas in which this product is more effective than other products on the fat blocker shelves.

The official website for this product is essentially made up of a single page fact sheet that provides a basic rundown of the claims, a list of the ingredients, and a small and blurry reproduction of the supplement facts table from the product packaging. The directions for the product are also available here. According to that page, for one bottle of 60 capsules, the full retail price is $19.95, but the promotional retail price is $12.95 (with an explanation that resellers are not permitted to sell for over the full price or less than the promotional price). As one capsule is to be taken three times per day, this means that one bottle lasts only 20 days. That said, its price is still more than competitive in this market.

The full list of active ingredients within this formula include: Phaseolus Vulgaris, Chitosan, Guarana, Coleus Forskolii, and Chromium Polynicotinate. This reveals that the formula also includes a stimulant (guarana) and that it could temporarily boost fat burning while also increasing the risk of side effects. A doctor should be consulted before taking this product as it could reduce the absorption of fat soluble vitamins and other nutrients, so proper supplementation in appropriate timing may be required.
