Nutrilite Carb Blocker 2 has had a long list of names throughout its lifetime – including Calorie Just, Carb Blocker, Calow, and CB Plus – but it is now hanging onto its latest name from this manufacturer. Whatever the name on the label, the promise has always been the same: that it helps dieters to be able to limit the digestion of carbohydrates that are consumed in various foods such as breads, potatoes, sugars, pastas, cereals, starchy veggies, and rice.

Three Active Ingredients

At the time of the writing of this review, there wasn’t a great deal of information provided regarding the ingredients that make up the formula for Nutrilite Carb Blocker 2, but the product label does list ingredients such as:

  • White Bean extract
  • Soybean extract
  • Parsley Concentrate

These are the top three ingredients on the list and the only active substances in the formula. The remaining ingredients listed are fillers and preservatives.

White Bean Carb Blocking Benefits

Among the active ingredients, white bean extract (also commonly called phaseolus vulgaris or white kidney bean) is known to be capable of binding a type of enzyme in the body which is known as alpha-amylase. This enzyme is responsible for breaking down starches that are consumed in food in order to make them small enough to be absorbed by the body.

By binding to that enzyme, it cannot perform its task and therefore some of those starches cannot be broken down enough to be absorbed. Those starches that are not digested and absorbed by the body are instead eliminated as waste.

There has been research conducted on white bean extract and its ability to block carbohydrates and its effects on weight loss. One study found short term use of this extract combined with dietary modification, exercise and behavioral intervention resulted in greater weight loss in the subjects who took 1000 mg of the proprietary white bean supplement that was used, versus the placebo group. That said, this randomized study was conducted only on 25 healthy subjects and only for 4 weeks. Longer studies with more subjects are needed to determine the true potential benefits of this extract.

Meant to Be Used with a Calorie Controlled Diet

The use of Nutrilite Carb Blocker 2 is meant to be accompanied by a reduced calorie diet, and it claims to be able to block up to 500 carbohydrate based calories. It was originally developed for people who were already following a high protein, reduced carbohydrate diet.

If the product does actually contain enough of its ingredients in order to produce the effect that it claims, then it may have the potential of being helpful for people who are trying to lose weight by slashing the calories that they take in made from carbs. It could help to give them a bit of an advantage when they cannot completely shrink the number of carbohydrates that they eat every day.

Unfortunately, at the time of the writing, this product was available exclusively through Amway, which is not a method of purchasing that is appealing to everyone. Unlike some of Nutrilite’s other products, it cannot be purchased through the official manufacturer’s website or through any “local” seller links that are provided on that site, as is the case for its other products.

Nutrilite Carb Blocker 2 Update – May 2020

Nutrilite Carb Blocker 2 is no longer available. That said, as of May 2020, you could still buy Nutrilite Carb Blocker, which appears to be the identical product as the ingredients and the claims are the same, with the promise of blocking up to 500 carbs per meal.

What’s more, this diet pill is still available via Amway and no where else. A single bottle of 90 tablets could be purchased for $39.00, which is costly. The reason is that the directions are to take 1 to 3 tablets with a carbohydrate-containing meal, with the maximum daily dose being 9 tablets. This means that if you took the full 9 tablet dose daily, one bottle would last for only 10 days. This makes the product very expensive.

There is no proof that taking Nutrilite Carb Blocker 2 or this rebranded version will lead to weight loss. The manufacturer did not backup its claims with studies and white kidney bean has never been clinically proven effective as a weight loss aid.

Additionally, this ingredient can cause digestive upset and may not be safe to take by certain individuals, especially those with certain medical conditions or pregnant or nursing women. Do consult with your healthcare provider if you wish to take this or any other OTC carb blocker.
