LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Overview

What You Need To Know About LMNITRIX Carb Blocker

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker contains white kidney bean, which may help to prevent the breakdown of some carbohydrates in the stomach, which in turn could effectively reduce the calorific content of a meal. This type of supplement could also be used in theory by someone having a “cheat day” from their day, to reduce the impact of the cheat meal. The manufacturers have neglected to tell customers that the product will only work on starchy carbohydrates, and does not block the digestion and absorption of simple sugars.

What Are The Side Effects Of LMNITRIX Carb Blocker?

Some of the ingredients found in LMNITRIX Carb Blocker could cause a range of side effects.

Our research indicates that when white kidney bean-based carb blockers are dosed appropriately, a variety of side effects are quite common, especially when first taking the supplement. These potential side effects include stomach pains, gas, digestive discomfort, bloating, diarrhoea, and heartburn.

Chromium, Gymnema Sylvestre and cinnamon can affect blood sugar levels, and so may not suitable for diabetics.

More information about the potential side effects that could be caused by this supplement is available under the Side Effects tab.

How Much Does LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Cost?

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker can be purchased from the official LMNITRIX website, where a single bottle costs $34.99. Delivery charges may also apply. Each bottle contains 60 capsules and provides a 30-day supply. Of course, if used only on cheat days, then a bottle should last far longer.

Our Verdict On LMNITRIX Carb Blocker

The main carb blocking ingredient in LMNITRIX Carb Blocker is white kidney bean extract. This supplement contains far less white kidney bean extract than the amounts used per meal or per day in successful clinical trials, meaning that it is likely to have a limited effect. Other ingredients in this supplement, such as glucomannan, are also underdosed. We believe that LMNITRIX Carb Blocker is trying to do too much at once; it would be better if this were a well-dosed carb blocker rather than a carb-blocking, appetite suppressing, energy boosting weight loss supplement that performs poorly.

There are no customer reviews for this product. The manufacturer’s returns policy is confusing and contradictory, with different policies laid out on different parts of the website. As such, customers may not be able to receive a refund.

Overall, we do not recommend LMNITRIX Carb Blocker to our readers.

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Key Features

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker contains white kidney bean, which may help to prevent the breakdown of some carbohydrates in the stomach, which in turn could effectively reduce the calorific content of a meal. This type of supplement could also be used in theory by someone having a “cheat day” from their day, to reduce the impact of the cheat meal. This type of supplement has limited impact, and cannot prevent the digestion of all the carbohydrates in a meal. It also does not seem to affect simple sugars. It is important not to over-rely upon carb blocking supplements such as this one, as people tend to over-estimate the impact of the supplement, and use it as a justification to overeat, eventually leading to them regaining weight.

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Facts

  • Manufactured by LMNITRIX
  • 60 capsules per bottle
  • Suitable for use by men and women

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker is manufactured by an American supplement company called LMNITRIX, who are based out of West Virginia. LMNITRIX describe themselves as a family-run company, and are mainly known for their range of pre-workouts, BCAAs, and other workout aids. As well as selling each of their products individually, LMNITRIX also sells “stacks” of several products together that target weight loss, athletic performance, and other areas. The company can be contacted via the details supplied on their official website.

How to Take LMNITRIX Carb Blocker

Directions for use are as follows: Take two capsules with your largest meal of the day.

  • The manufacturers do not make this blindingly obvious, and so we thought that we should clarify that the carb blocking element of this supplement will only work to block carbohydrates if carbohydrates are present in a meal.

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Concerns:

  • Confusing money-back guarantee and returns policy
  • No customer reviews
  • Numerous ingredients are underdosed

What Does LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Claim To Do?

According to the manufacturers, LMNITRIX Carb Blocker contains a blend of white kidney bean and eight other active ingredients, which offer a variety of benefits. These include blocking carbs, boosting energy levels, and enhancing the consumer’s metabolic rate. The product is described as a cheat day companion that “blocks those unwanted carbs and sugars” so that you can eat a cheat meal without totally derailing your diet.

Does LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Work?

White Kidney Bean extract has been proven to block the digestion of some starchy carbohydrates in a meal, which in the long term could increase a dieter’s speed of weight loss. It will not have an impact upon weight loss if they are not already dieting, and over-relying upon this supplement could actually cause weight gain. It does not affect or block simple sugars, something that the manufacturers do not make clear!

Successful clinical trials using White Kidney Bean Extract used a total of 2000 mg per day, which is far more than the 500 mg dosage found in a daily serving of LMNITRIX Carb Blocker.

Cassia Nomame is often referred to as a fat blocker, but the only available supporting trial was conducted in animals. Its effectiveness and optimum dosing levels in humans have seemingly not been researched.

Glucomannan is an appetite suppressant, but like many ingredients in this product, it is underdosed and will have minimal impact upon the consumer.

Overall, this supplement could theoretically aid weight loss, but its benefits are limited by the insufficient doses of many ingredients.

What Are The Ingredients of LMNITRIX Carb Blocker?

The ingredients found in LMNITRIX Carb Blocker are detailed below. The ingredient quantities listed are per serving of two capsules.

  • White Kidney Bean Extract 4:1 500 mg: One study in humans showed that participants who consumed white kidney bean extract, in addition to being on a multi-component weight loss programs (diet, exercise, and behavioral intervention), lost more weight when compared to those who just followed the multi-component diet. This is due to the ability of white kidney bean to reduce the absorption of complex carbohydrates, meaning that it can effectively reduce the calorific content of starchy foods. The study used 1000 mg of white kidney bean extract, twice a day. Source
  • Glucomannan 200 mg: This fibre comes from the root of konjac, a plant native to Asia and acts as an appetite suppressant. The powder absorbs water upon contact and can swell up to 17 times in size, becoming gel-like in consistency; it not only helps to fill the stomach, but slows down digestion, meaning that the dieter can go for longer before feeling hungry again. There are several studies that highlight that the regular use of glucomannan before meals leads to a significant weight loss without any other changes being made. However, studies typically use much larger amounts than are found in a daily serving of this supplement. Source
  • Chitosan 200 mg: This sugar is a type of fiber extracted from the shells of crustaceans such as lobster and crabs. It may block the absorption of dietary fat and cholesterol. Studies suggest its effects are minimal. Source
  • Cassia Nomame Extract 8% Flavanols 100 mg: Cassia Nomame is a herb from China, and is used in folk medicine as a diuretic. It is often referred to as a fat blocker, but we struggled to locate any evidence from human clinical trials supporting this claim; there is some evidence from rat studies that Cassia Nomame could suppress weight gain by blocking fat. Source
  • Cinnamon Bark 100 mg: Several studies have found a link between cinnamon and the regulation of blood glucose levels, and it may play a small role in improving insulin sensitivity. In terms of its effects upon weight, this area has been under-researched. In any case, the dosage used in this product is far too low to be effective. Source
  • Gymnema Sylvestre 100 mg: Herb traditionally used in Indian medicine, several studies have shown that gymnema sylvestre can support healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Research into its role in weight loss is still in preliminary stages, but a few studies are publishing promising results. Source
  • Protease 1,000 HUT/G 48 mg: Digestive enzyme that helps to break down protein.
  • Lipase 1,000 FIP/G 20 mg: Digestive enzyme that helps to break down fats.
  • Chromium (as Polynicotinate) 125 mcg

Does LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Have Any Side Effects?

Some of the ingredients found in LMNITRIX Carb Blocker could cause a range of side effects.

Our research indicates that when white kidney bean-based carb blockers are dosed appropriately, a variety of side effects are actually quite common. The amount of white kidney bean used in this supplement is less than a quarter of what was used in successful clinical trials; whilst the effectiveness may be reduced, the likelihood of side effects occurring may also be reduced.

As dieters get used to the effects of the product, they may experience stomach pain, increased bowel movements, and flatulence. Some have reported severe gas and bloating that can occasionally cause significant discomfort in the stomach.

Eating an excess of carb-rich foods whilst using carb blockers such as white kidney bean can cause diarrhoea and heartburn. This is due to the fact that large amounts of food remain unprocessed in the digestive tract, causing noticeable issues.

The side effects of Cassia Nomame are generally unknown and under-researched. However, as a diuretic, it is likely to increase urination and could cause dehydration if you are not drinking enough water.

Chitosan sometimes causes mild stomach pains, constipation and gas. Chromium, Gymnema Sylvestre, and cinnamon can affect blood sugar levels, and so may not suitable for diabetics.

Glucomannan works by absorbing water in the stomach, making it very important to drink plenty of water when taking the product and adjust the dosage if problems occur. Consumers who do not drink enough water when taking glucomannan may experience constipation and stomach cramps. As glucomannan is a fibre, it is likely that its use will increase the rate of one’s bowel movements. Diarrhoea may also occur. Those who experience diarrhoea should cease using the product immediately.

As highlighted above, glucomannan also affects blood sugar levels. Diabetics should consult their doctor before taking any glucomannan-based product.

As glucomannan absorbs water, it can swell, and could be a choking hazard. Do not chew the capsule.

Caution:
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you have a known medical condition including diabetes or hypoglycaemia and have questions about the advisability of taking this product, consult your physician prior to use. Ensure that you are drinking enough water throughout the day to avoid dehydration. Diabetics should consult their doctor before purchase, as this product can affect blood sugar levels.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For LMNITRIX Carb Blocker?

We were unable to locate any customer reviews for this product.

Does LMNITRIX Carb Blocker Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

LMNITRIX’s policy on returns is fairly confusing. On their “returns policy”, the company states that they only offer refunds on unopened packages returned within 14 days of receiving it. This policy does not qualify as a money-back guarantee, which should only refer to opened packages (meaning that customers have had a chance to try the product and decide they don’t like it before receiving a refund).

Incidentally, the company claims to offer a 60-day money-back guarantee on product sales page for Carb Blocker, also describing it as a “100% Guarantee” on the links at the bottom of the website. Looking at the terms of the guarantee, however, it is phrased as if it only covers BCAA products.

It may be worth contacting the company for clarification if you are thinking of applying for a refund for any LMNITRIX products, as the website is full of strange contradictions on this issue!

Where Can I Buy LMNITRIX Carb Blocker?

LMNITRIX Carb Blocker can be purchased from the official LMNITRIX website, where a single bottle costs $34.99. Delivery charges may also apply. Each bottle contains 60 capsules.

The product is also available on eBay, where a single bottle costs $34.99, plus delivery charges.
