Another clinical trial found that a tea drink consisting mainly this extract brought about a 25 percent reduction in carbohydrate absorption
In addition, whole grains and legumes (beans) have been shown to improve glycemic control and slow the rate of carbohydrate absorption
and the risk of diabetes.
Currently, anti-diabetic drugs acting through inhibiting carbohydrate absorption
from the intestine are usually [alpha]-glucosidase inhibitors, such as acarbose and miglitol, which inhibit the breakdown of complex carbohydrates into simple ones in order to reduce glucose absorption and hence only work with a meal containing complex carbohydrates (Bischoff, 1994; Yee and Fong, 1996).
Gymnema, a plant extract, helps to block sugar and carbohydrate absorption
It delays gastric emptying and inhibits carbohydrate absorption
, and may also stimulate insulin secretion.
In August 2008, the Company released top-line results from its 163 patient, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of Trizytek, which is a stable and pure combination of three active enzymes in a fixed-ratio that is designed to improve fat, protein and carbohydrate absorption
in pancreatic insufficient individuals.
Blocking carbohydrate absorption
and weight loss: a clinical trial using Phase 2 brand proprietary fractionated white bean extract.
The enchantment of a mechanism: increasing metabolic rate (thermogenic), decreasing absolute carbohydrate absorption
("starch blocker"), increasing satiety, or decreasing appetite.
