Carbohydrates are essential for a well-balanced diet and healthy body. They provide the only energy source (glucose) for many vital organs, including the brain, central nervous system and kidneys. The digestive system breaks down carbohydrates into glucose and the pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin to help the glucose to move from the blood into the cells.

On the other hand, reducing the amount of carbohydrates (bread, pasta, etc.) in your diet is one of the best ways to lose weight. There are many studies showing that low-carbohydrate diets are more effective and healthier than the low-fat diet that is still recommended all around the world.

Studies show that low carbohydrate diets reduce your appetite and make you eat less calories and lose weight pretty much effortlessly as long as you manage to keep the carbohydrates down.

Proprietary placebo controlled clinical study with 31 healthy adults proved that Belinal® administered before carbohydrate meal reduces glycemic index of a meal by 35% and so contributing to the control of the body weight.

In 8 weeks animal study three groups of animals had unlimited access to the water and to one of the following feed. First group to healthy basic diet, second group to atherogenic diet ( basic diet with yolk, lard, fructose and cholesterol) and third group to atherogenic diet supplemented with Belinal®.

The final body weight of the animals after 8 weeks:

923 g in basic diet group, 

1.049 g in atherogenic diet group

923 g in atherogenic dietgroup supplemented with Belinal®. 

Similar to humans, guinea pigs store most of their blood cholesterol in LDL form,  poses similar enzymes associated with cholesterol synthesis and arehighly sensitive to dietary lipid intake. The results of body weight demonstrate that Belinal® is very potent ingredient for weight management.
