Carb Down by Davinci Labs is a unique combination of Phase 2 brand starch neutralizer, Gymnema sylvestre, and Chromemate brand chromium polynicotinate. Phase 2 starch neutralizer is an extract from the white kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). Research shows that this extract can block the absorption of carbohydrates (from starch) because it contains a protein component that inhibits the enzyme, alpha-amylase from breaking down carbohydrates from foods. When this enzyme is blocked, the starch that's eaten cannot be converted to fat. In a recent double-blind study in humans, Phase 2 starch neutralizer decreased the percentage of caloric burden from complex carbohydrates by 60%. The addition of Gymnema sylvestre and Chromemate is to support appetite control and glucose metabolism.
