Phase 2® is an amazing, non-stimulant, all-natural nutritional ingredient that is derived from the white kidney bean. It is the first nutritional ingredient that has been clinically & scientifically proven to neutralize starch, found in in your favorite foods such as potatoes, breads, pasta. rice, corn and crackers.
During the digestive process, your body converts carbohydrates, found in starchy foods such as potatoes and pasta, into sugar. Your body does this by breaking-down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme that is produced in the pancreas. These sugar calories are either burned off, through exercise, or stored as fat cells for future use. Unfortunately, inactivity means that these stored fat cells accumulate. The result is weight gain.
Phase 2®, an exclusive, all-natural nutritional ingredient extracted from white kidney beans, "neutralizes" the digestive enzyme alpha amylase before it can convert starch into glucose and then fat. Essentially, it allows the carbohydrates to pass through the system possibly with less caloric intake.*
Phase 2® is the first natural ingredient that meets these high standards of excellence through clinical research. Phase 2® has demonstrated clinical efficacy through several recent U.S. university-based human studies. Phase 2® has demonstrated safety through LD50 studies, the gold standard test for acute and chronic toxicity.
The white kidney beans used to make Phase 2® are non-GMO (genetically modified) while the extraction process uses purified water - no solvents! Virtually all impurities are removed during extraction process.
