Phase 2® Starch Blocker is made from all natural White Kidney Bean Extract to help block unwanted carbs and starches.

What is Whole Health’s Phase 2® Starch Blocker?

If you love bread and pasta, you may have a problem. These starch-heavy foods are full of complex carbohydrates that lead to unwanted body fat. Our Phase 2® Starch Blocker is a powerful diet supplement that blocks those unwanted carbs. It sounds great but you may be asking, how does it work?

The key ingredient to this potent formula is pure White Kidney Bean Extract. This natural carb blocker inhibits amylase, the enzyme that digests starches. When amylase is blocked, those carbs pass through the body undetected, meaning you don’t absorb those calories. Without White Kidney Bean Extract blocking amylase enzymes, those digested sugars and carbs lead to additional body fat.

Health Benefits Of White Kidney Bean Extract:

  • Blocks unwanted carbs and starches*
  • Reduces digestible carbs in starch-rich foods*
  • May lower blood sugar levels*

  • Phase 2® may help people who want to control their weight while also enjoying carb-rich foods again in moderation. Carb Blockers are also helpful for those who need the glucose support to reduce the blood sugar "spike" often associated with consuming starchy foods.

    Why Our Phase 2® Starch Blocker is a Good Choice

    Phase 2® White Kidney Bean Extract is clinically shown to reduce the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates by up to 66% (click on link) thus reducing the caloric impact of starchy foods. This natural carb blocker can be helpful in maintaining your target weight along with a sensible diet and exercise. Our ingredients are safe and processed free of contaminants and stimulants.

    Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take two capsules during a starchy meal, preferably at first bite, with 8 ounces of water, or as recommended by a health care practitioner.

    Whole Health® guarantees every product that we sell. We are proud of the quality of our products and want to make sure you are completely satisfied and that is why we offer a 60-Day Money Back Guarantee.

    A Bean Extract that May Support Weight Loss

    A Bean Extract that May Support Weight Loss : Main Image
    People taking bean extract with slight calorie restriction lost an average 6.4 lbs over 12 weeks
    In the never-ending quest for the secret to losing weight and keeping it off, another natural product with promise comes to light: an extract from white kidney beans, Phaseolus vulgaris, that interferes with carbohydrate digestion and absorption. Researchers found in a preliminary study that the extract helped overweight and obese people lose weight during 12 weeks of calorie restriction and maintain the weight loss during 24 weeks of unrestricted eating.

    Watching weight

    The study, published in Obesity, was divided into two parts: weight loss and weight management. During the weight loss part of the trial, 123 overweight or obese people were put on individualized diets based on gender, age, weight, and activity level. The diets were designed to encourage weight loss through slight calorie restriction for 12 weeks. Participants were also assigned to take 1,000 mg of Phaseolus vulgaris extract three times per day or placebo.

    During the weight management part of the trial, 49 of the original bean extract users were monitored for an additional 24 weeks while continuing to take the extract. They were told to eat a nutritionally balanced but unrestricted diet.

    Bean extract brings better weight loss

    Researchers found several positive effects:

    • During the weight loss part of the trial, people taking bean extract lost an average of 2.9 kg (6.4 pounds) while people taking the placebo lost 0.9 kg (2.0 pounds).
    • Bean extract users also lost more body fat, suggesting that the weight loss was not due to muscle loss, and inches around the waist, indicating that abdominal fat, which is more closely associated with diabetes and heart disease than other types of fat, had decreased.
    • During the weight management part of the trial, 73% of participants successfully maintained their weight.
    • No negative side effects were seen in people using the bean extract.

    “We conclude that [Phaseolus vulgaris extract] is effective and safe in weight loss and weight management, even with unrestricted energy intake,” the study’s authors said.

    No quick fix

    These results suggest that Phaseolus vulgaris extract might increase weight loss while on a low-calorie diet and further suggest that this bean extract might help with the stickiest of problems: maintaining weight loss, but the amount of weight lost and kept off over a total of 36 weeks (9 months) was modest, at 2.9 kg or 6.4 pounds. If you are trying to lose a meaningful amount of weight, a comprehensive program that includes diet, exercise, and supplements may be the best approach.

    Here are some things to remember:

    • Eat beans. Whole beans are rich in complex carbohydrates. They slow down carbohydrate digestion and help regulate blood sugar levels, and are an important part of a low-calorie diet that promotes weight loss, along with fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
    • Make it count. All effective weight-loss diets are based on calorie reduction. Focus on sustainable habit changes that eliminate extra calories—snacks, sodas, fancy coffees, and even juice might be adding to your calorie load and might be well replaced by fruit, herbal tea, or water.
    • Get support. Researchers have found that one of the keys to successful weight loss and maintenance of weight loss is social support. Meeting regularly with a support group or an individual counselor may help you meet your goals.

    Best Carb Intercept Product! Review by Kathy W

    I have used other products that use the Phase2 branded ingredient and cost more money and they don't have as high of milligram strength, Whole Health has 1200 per serving!! Product really works, I don't gain weight when I take before starchy meals (30 minutes before I eat) and never feel bloated. So glad I found this product since I had been buying another name brand and getting the same results. So now I get more for my money! Buy in volume and get a 25% discount!
