We’ve taken a look at GNC Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller, a natural product that aims to reduce carbohydrate absorption and thereby contribute to weight loss. Spikes in blood sugar levels caused by carbohydrates have been implicated in increased fat storage and this product aims to reduce that. We’ll examine the ingredients and other relevant factors about this product in our assessment of it.
What’s in GNC Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller?
The only active ingredient in this product is an extract from the white kidney bean. White kidney bean extract inhibits the specialized protein that is secreted in the digestive tract that breaks down starchy carbohydrate molecules. If the starchy carbohydrate molecules are not broken down, then they are not absorbed. Carbohydrates are the major contributors to fat synthesis, so this ingredient reduces the effect of that.
This carb blocker is missing an ingredient like chromium which helps the body cells to take up glucose from the blood. This is also an important function of a carb blocker because it stabilizes blood sugars, and to a degree can enhance energy production.
How Do You Use GNC Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller?
One capsule of GNC Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller should be taken twice a day before meals that are high in carbohydrates. Each capsule contains 500 mg of white kidney bean extract.
120 capsules of GNC Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller, which equates to a one month supply, can be purchased online for the price of $19.99. The manufacturer also offers a special where a customer purchases two bottles of the product and then receives the third free. The special is only available for a limited time.
Is There a Guarantee?
There is a guarantee on this product which is valid for 30 days from the date of the order. If a customer is not satisfied with their purchase they can return it for a refund of the purchase price. This does extend to items which have been opened.
We applaud the manufacturer for offering a guarantee but we do believe that it is too short to try the product sufficiently. Basically it doesn’t give the customer a chance to try a full course of the product.
The Conclusion of our GNC Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller Review
The dosage instructions for this product are very clear and comprehensive. The dosage of white kidney bean extract is also optimal. Despite this, Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller may not be as effective as similar carbohydrate blockers because it is short of an ingredient that these other products have.
This product also falls short of some other manufacturers because the specials and discounts that they offer don’t significantly save the customer money. Furthermore, the guarantee they offer is not ideal. It is for these reasons that we recommend that customers look at other products.
