Carbo Curb helps those people struggling with sugar and carbohydrate cravings. Carb cravings can be a symptom of insulin resistance, neurotransmitter imbalance, or mood problems. This formula addresses these concerns to help people working to avoid dietary intake of carbohydrates.
About the ingredients:
L tryptophan and theanine are amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Theanine is found in green tea and is a derivative of the neurotransmitter glutamic acid. Theanine is calming and relaxing, while also promoting mental alertness and concentration. Theanine may also reduce irritability. Improving mood and emotional balance can help reduce eating habits driven by stress. Tryptophan is used in a similar fashion as theanine- to promote relaxation, improve sleep, reduce anxiety, and lower cortisol levels. Lowering cortisol can reduce carbohydrate cravings.
Relora is a proprietary blend of herbal extracts of Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense. Both Relora and Rhodiola rosea support the body’s ability to withstand stress. Stress and elevated cortisol are associated with overeating, weight gain, carb cravings, and excess fat deposits especially in the abdominal area. Relora has been found to help reduce the stress hormone cortisol and to rebalance DHEA to healthy levels. Research on Relora also shows it can reduce short-term anxiety and improve sleep, concentration, fatigue, muscle tension, restlessness, irritability, and mood swings.
Rhodiola rosea is a plant that grows in the mountains and high latitudes in the northern hemisphere. As a traditional medicine, it has been used by herbalists in Scandinavia and Russia. The Vikings reportedly used Rhodiola to enhance strength and endurance. It was also used in some regions during cold and flu season. At present, the root is used medicinally as an adaptogen to increase the body’s resistance to the effects of stress. Many studies have confirmed rhodiola’s reputation as an herb to optimize performance during stressful events. Rhodiola is used to reduce stress-related physical and mental fatigue, athletic performance, and physical endurance. It improves mental and psychomotor performance in people exposed to prolonged physical and emotional stressors. Furthermore, rhodiola can help reduce feelings of anxiety in people with generalized anxiety disorder.
