should I take Phase 2?
should be taken before a starch-rich
meal. If you eat carbohydrate foods a
great deal, then you should consider
taking Phase 2 on a regular basis.
However, if you only eat starchy meals
occasionally, then you will only need to
take Phase 2 occasionally.
Can it be
taken at any other time?
2 can only have an effect on you when
taken prior to the consumption of starch
or a starch-rich meal.
should I take?
people a positive effect can be obtained
by taking just one capsule of Phase 2
(500mg). However, for maximum benefit the
label on the bottle suggests taking two
capsules on each occasion (a total of

more if I want to?
suggested dosage is 1000mg, but it's
possible that some people may experience
additional benefit by taking 1500mg.
Since everyone's metabolism and
constitution are different, some people
may wish to experiment on themselves to
find the right level for them.
should I take it exactly?
taking Phase 2 about 10 to 15 minutes
happens if I'm busy then?
busy at that time or you simply forget to
take Phase 2 before your meal, you can
always take it along with your food or
even immediately after eating, as in
these circumstances Phase 2 will still
provide you with at least some of its
starch neutralising benefits.
starch does it block?
clinical studies conducted on Phase 2 so
far show that it reduced starch
absorption in the study volunteers by
varying amounts, ranging from an average
of 28% to an average of 85%.
would it block for me?

particular person is something that can't
be specified because everyone has their

the sugar I eat?
prevents some of the starch you eat from
being broken down and digested by the
body. It has no effect on any sugar that
weight can I lose?
carbohydrate foods you tend to consume
the greater the benefit you can receive
from taking Phase 2. Therefore, those
whose diets contain the most starch will
tend to be the ones that lose the most
weight, whilst those who generally eat
starch sparingly will be the ones that
lose weight only modestly. Results also
depend on the chemistry of an
individual's own digestive system and for
that reason the effects of Phase 2 will
inevitably vary a great deal from person
Can I eat
as much starch as I want?
eat as much starch as you want and Phase
2 will work to reduce the calorie intake
that you receive from it. However, if you
use the taking of Phase 2 as an excuse to
increase your consumption of carbohydrate
foods, then there's a danger that you may
only succeed in defeating the object of

works by reducing the absorption of
calories from starch foods. If you bear
in mind that a pound of body fat is the
equivalent of about 3500 calories, then
you will at least know how many calories
you need to reduce absorption by in order
to lose a certain amount of weight. For
example, a saving of 500 calories a day
should translate into a weight loss of a
pound in a week.
this product completely safe?
completely safe. Phase 2 is an entirely
natural food substance extracted from the
white kidney bean. Clinical studies have
reported no adverse side effects.
any known interactions?
no known interactions with any foods,
drinks, drugs or medications of any kind.
However, Phase 2 is not recommended for
anyone with an allergy to beans.
you have diabetes?
studies carried out on Phase 2 have shown
that taking it before meals results in
volunteers having lower blood sugar
levels than those taking a placebo. If
you are a diabetic, it is therefore
recommended that you let your doctor know
if you are considering use of Phase 2. It
is also important if taking Phase 2 to
consider increasing the frequency of
blood glucose monitoring in order to
prevent any possibility of hypoglycemia.
Can it be
taken when pregnant?
your calorie intake during pregnancy is
generally not recommended.
affect vitamins or minerals?
2 only affects the body's absorption of
starch. It does not have any effect on
vitamins or minerals or any other
