White kidney beans contain a protein called Phaseolamin, which experts suggest may help to reduce the body’s enzymatic digestion of dietary starches. It is thought that Phaseolamin may block the function of an enzyme called alpha-amylase, which works by breaking down starchy foods ready for digestion. However, when alpha-amylase is prevented from performing this role, fewer carbohydrates are absorbed and converted into sugar. For this reason, white kidney bean is often referred to as a carb blocker. The high-fibre content also means that they may help you feel fuller for longer and they have long been taken to support healthy weight loss diets.
Previously known as ‘Starch Neutraliser’, our highly-concentrated White Kidney Bean Extract 5000mg contains safe and effective levels of Phaseolamin. Plus, each extract is standardised to ensure a consistent level of potency and purity. Our convenient EasyGest capsules have a smooth easy-to-swallow outer shell and are simple to add to food or drink if preferred. It is recommended to take one to three capsules just before the main meal of the day.
