Plexus Block

Plexus BLOCK™ contains natural ingredients, clinically-tested to work immediately to block the absorption of up to 48% of carbs and sugars from your meal — without blocking the absorption of any beneficial nutrients. *

When you eat, the body does what it’s naturally wired to do — converts carbs and sugar into glucose. But when too much glucose is converted at once, the excess can be stored as fat. Excess glucose means excess fat and excess fat can lead to excess weight.

HOW Plexus BLOCK™ WORKS

Block is a dietary supplement providing natural ingredients, clinically-tested to work immediately to block up to 48 percent of the absorption of carbs and sugars during digestion. When used daily with meals that contain carbs or sugars, Block provides quick-acting ingredients. A Brown Seaweed blend, White Kidney Bean extract, and Chromax® Chromium Picolinate work together to help maintain normal blood sugar levels already in the normal range, improve glucose metabolism and body composition. *

Block is taken at the start of a meal. Food travels through the normal digestive process. Once chewing begins, the enzyme alpha-amylase is released through saliva in the mouth, and moves with the food through the esophagus to the stomach where food degrades into smaller particles. As digestion continues, in addition to alpha-amylase being secreted from the pancreas, another enzyme, alpha-glucosidase is introduced. The two enzymes, alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase are responsible for 80 percent of carb and sugar digestion. The clinically tested ingredients in Block target these enzymes and bind to the carb and sugar molecules in the small intestine, neutralizing up to 48% of their ability to convert carbs and sugars into glucose–without blocking the absorption of any beneficial nutrients. *
