Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer - Frequently
How often should I take Phase 2?
Phase 2 should be taken before a starch-rich meal. If you eat carbohydrate
foods a great deal, then you should consider taking Phase 2 on a regular basis.
However, if you only eat starchy meals occasionally, then you will only need
to take Phase 2 occasionally.
Can it be taken at any other time?
No, Phase 2 can only have an effect on you when taken prior to the consumption
of starch or a starch-rich meal.
How much should I take?
For most people a positive effect can be obtained by taking just one capsule
of Phase 2 (500mg). However, for maximum benefit the label on the bottle suggests
taking two capsules on each occasion (a total of 1000mg).
Can I take more if I want to?
The suggested dosage is 1000mg, but it's possible that some people may experience
additional benefit by taking 1500mg. Since everyone's metabolism and constitution
are different, some people may wish to experiment on themselves to find the
right level for them.
How much would it block for me?
The amount of starch that may be blocked in any one particular person is something
that can't be specified because everyone has their own biochemical identity
and their own quantities and strengths of digestive enzymes.
What about the sugar I eat?
Phase 2 prevents some of the starch you eat from being broken down and digested
by the body. It has no effect on any sugar that you consume.
How much weight can I lose?
The more carbohydrate foods you tend to consume the greater the benefit you
can receive from taking Phase 2. Therefore, those whose diets contain the most
starch will tend to be the ones that lose the most weight, whilst those who
generally eat starch sparingly will be the ones that lose weight only modestly.
Results also depend on the chemistry of an individual's own digestive system
and for that reason the effects of Phase 2 will inevitably vary a great deal
from person to person.
Can I eat as much starch as I want?
You can eat as much starch as you want and Phase 2 will work to reduce the
calorie intake that you receive from it. However, if you use the taking of Phase
2 as an excuse to increase your consumption of carbohydrate foods, then there's
a danger that you may only succeed in defeating the object of the exercise.
Can I estimate likely progress?
Phase 2 works by reducing the absorption of calories from starch foods. If
you bear in mind that a pound of body fat is the equivalent of about 3500 calories,
then you will at least know how many calories you need to reduce absorption
by in order to lose a certain amount of weight. For example, a saving of 500
calories a day should translate into a weight loss of a pound in a week.
Is taking this product completely safe?
Yes, it's completely safe. Phase 2 is an entirely natural food substance extracted
from the white kidney bean. Clinical studies have reported no adverse side effects.
Are there any known interactions?
There are no known interactions with any foods, drinks, drugs or
medications of any kind. However, Phase 2 is not recommended for
anyone with an allergy to beans.
What if you have diabetes?
Clinical studies carried out on Phase 2 have shown that taking it before meals
results in volunteers having lower blood sugar levels than those taking a placebo.
If you are a diabetic, it is therefore recommended that you let your doctor
know if you are considering use of Phase 2. It is also important if taking Phase
2 to consider increasing the frequency of blood glucose monitoring in order
to prevent any possibility of hypoglycemia.
Can it be taken when pregnant?
Reducing your calorie intake during pregnancy is generally not recommended.
Does it affect vitamins or minerals?
No, Phase 2 only affects the body's absorption of starch. It does not have
any effect on vitamins or minerals or any other nutrients.
Are the beans genetically modified?
No, Phase 2 is extracted from white kidney beans which have not
been genetically modified.
