As vegetarian dietary supplement to help limit carbohydrate absorption, Count-Down is a unique combination of the starch neutralizer, Gymnema sylvestre, and Chromemate® brand chromium polynicotinate. The starch neutralizer is an extract from the white kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). Research shows that this extract can block the absorption of carbohydrates (from starch) because it contains a protein component that inhibits the enzyme alpha-amylase from breaking down carbohydrates from foods.* When this enzyme is blocked, the starch thats eaten cannot be converted to fat. The addition of Gymnema sylvestre and Chromemate® is to support appetite control and glucose metabolism.*
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule with water, before any meal containing carbohydrates from starch, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
