This post is dedicated to one of my favorites…Plexus Block.
What is it?
Plexus block does just what you think it would do… it blocks starches and sugars from converting to glucose in the body. Block slows the absorption of starch and sugar for healthy glucose levels and can help to reduce starch and sugar from converting to glucose in the body by up to 48%.
I don’t eat a ton of starchy foods…it doesn’t sit well with my UC. But there are times I like to eat cupcakes and drink wine. So, I take 2 pills of block 30 minutes before my meal and it helps so much!
The main ingredient is white kidney bean extract…hello…Dr. Oz has been talking about that for years! The other is brown seaweed blend.
What do those ingredients do?
The active ingredient in white kidney bean extract is something called “phaseolus vulgaris” which interferes with the pancreas’s ability to secret alpha-amylase. In other words, it’s blocking the enzyme necessary for starch digestion. So, the starch will then pass through the digestive tract intact without being broken down into simple sugars and possibly later being stored as fat. Yay!
Brown seaweed is a source of fucoxanthin. There have been many studies that show fucoxanthin supplements can aid weight loss and reduce liver fat. Here’s a visual that helped me understand it….when you place dried brown seaweed in a glass, then add water, it expands. Filling up your stomach so you eat less. Seaweed also has iodine…which most Americans do not get enough of.
See…it just works out so perfectly…Before/During/After. (I will highlight Probio5 next…in the mean time, check out the video I made explaining why I love it…CLICK HERE)
