Natrol Carb Intercept is designed to eradicate one of the biggest hurdles to weight loss—cravings for carbs. While you have every good reason to drop those unwanted pounds, your diet program can easily be derailed when you start craving for foods high in carbohydrates like that morning bagel you can’t do without.

We previously discussed another Natrol Product known as Natrol Acai Berry.

Back to carb intercept. This isn’t to say that carbs are bad. In fact, they’re necessary for good health as the primary source of energy. Carbs are converted into energy, which the body needs for regular exercise. But those that are not used up are stored as fat. And this can happen a lot when there’s an oversupply such as when you can’t stop devouring on your favorite pastries.

So how can Natrol Carb Intercept help?

Natrol Carb InterceptCarb Intercept is an all-natural diet plan that features Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer. It’s a white kidney bean extract that is said to inhibit the enzyme responsible for digesting starch, and therefore functions to neutralize carbs found in breads, pasta, cereal, and rice. As it intercepts starch breakdown by impairing the enzyme that converts starch into glucose, it enables carbs to pass through your system without much caloric absorption.

Product Details

Natrol LogoCarb Intercept is a weight loss supplement manufactured by Natrol. It is offered in both capsule and sprinkle formats. Each serving contains 1,000 mg of Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer. It also has 40 mcg of Chromium, which aids in metabolizing proteins and fats for energy. Other ingredients include calcium, sodium, and dibasic calcium phosphate.

One-month supply of Carb Intercept can be purchased directly from the manufacturer for $35. You may also purchase from other vitamin shops and distributors.

Some Considerations

There is much hype surrounding the potency of white kidney beans. All over the internet, you’ll find a lot of information as to how it can benefit weight loss programs.

However, you’ll find that most of these were published by companies that manufacture and sell supplements that contain white kidney bean extract as starch blockers. Also worthy to note that there are no published scientific studies that can prove the effectiveness of products like Natrol Carb Intercept (which we discussed before).

Some experts say that while this product is indeed effective in blocking starch, that is not enough to produce significant weight loss. It doesn’t work as well as a thermogenic fat burner. Thermogenesis refers to the fat burning process, which happens when there’s a boost in the body’s metabolism. White kidney extract doesn’t have the capacity to increase the body’s metabolic process.

Also, more effective than blocking out carbs is choosing whole grains, which can promote proper digestion and detoxification. Whole grains consumed with fat burners can be more efficient in giving you the weight loss results that you desire. This, and a well-balanced diet and proper exercise is what you need to meet your weight loss objectives. Natrol Carb Intercept can offer minimal aid towards achieving those goals.

Overall, if you have the money, you could give this product a go, but none the less, there are more products that will work better than this. It seems to be another hit or miss.
