Recent research has
shown the optimum time to take Carbo blocker is just before
a starch-rich meal along with 8 oz of water. However, the studies
also showed that it could still provide some of its starch
"neutralizing" benefits when taken during, or just after,
a starch-rich meal. One such study demonstrated that Phase 2®
Carbohydrate blocker could remain effective when a capsule is opened
and sprinkled onto food.
