Tribitor is a carb blocking product made in Poland for MarMar Investments Ltd.
Although products of this nature can assist weight loss by reducing the daily calorie intake, good results require carb blockers be used as part of an overall weight management regimen that includes a sensible diet and regular exercise.
Unfortunately, many people who seek out and buy this kind of dietary supplement do so for the wrong reason.
Carb blockers work by reducing the amount of calories the body receives from food-provided carbs such as potatoes, pasta, bread, and cake.
Sensible dieters would avoid such food or strictly limit its intake, but not everyone wishes to do so.
People enjoy eating chips and cake etc. and some dieters look for a way to cheat, that will allow them to continue eating the food they love without having to live with a (fat) body they hate.
MarMar investments could be accused of promoting this way of thinking because they tell potential customers Tribitor will always be there “when carbs are on the table” and will allow them to enjoy their meal “with less consequence”.
Method of Action
Tribitor differs from most other carb blocking supplements in two main ways. The first big difference is it comes as a powder that's intended to be mixed with water and consumed as a drink.
Carb blocking diet pills are far more common and, unless you have a problem swallowing pills, are likely to be easier to take. The other difference with Tribitor is the formulation is designed to lower the glycemic index.
When people speak of the glycemic index, they are referring to the scale used to measure the effect different carbohydrate providers have on blood glucose levels.
Not all carbohydrates are created equal. The glycemic index of carrots, nuts, and grapefruit does not exceed 54 and, although overindulgence would not be a good idea, the blood sugar levels of people who eat such food is unlikely to become suddenly elevated.
Cakes, chips, and white bread are a different story entirely. Food such as this has a glycemic index of 70 or higher and is best avoided. Such food types are also the ones carb-lovers tend to crave the most, but they are bad for the body in a number of different ways.
When people eat food that has a high glycemic index, it causes their blood sugar levels to rise suddenly. The pancreas responds to this by producing extra insulin.
This brings the blood sugar level down, but the insulin often works too well, causing the blood sugar level to become so low it triggers a desire to eat more food (especially sweet food) to bring the blood sugar level back up to normal.
So eating food that has a high glycemic index is not conducive to weight loss. It also increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
Key Ingredients and Blend Potential
Each sachet contains:
- White Kidney Bean Extract (1.2g): Easily the most popular carb blocking ingredient in the world, white kidney bean works by suppressing the normal activity of the amylase enzyme that's responsible for breaking down carbohydrates.
- White Mulberry Leaf Extract (600mg): The results of a double-blind placebo-controlled study suggests supplementation with white mulberry leaf extract improves glucose tolerance and decreases insulin production.
- Green Coffee Bean Extract (400mg): An ingredient that provides chlorogenic acid. Green coffee bean extract is a good inclusion for a blend of this nature because research suggests chlorogenic acid has the ability to reduce insulin secretion.
[box type=”info” align=”” class=”” width=””]Usage Guidelines – One sachet is required per day and should be taken 15 minutes before any meal that is rich in carbohydrate. Although MarMar Investments state it is possible to consume the powder without water (the flavor is likely to be intense), the recommended way to consume Tribitor is to place the contents of a sachet in a glass of water and consume it as a drink.[/box]

Side Effects & Health Considerations
Diabetics will need to get a doctor's advice before using any product that has the ability to alter insulin levels. People who suffer from other medical conditions would also be wise to obtain a doctor's approval before using Tribitor. The same advice is offered to women who are pregnant or nursing a child.

If you are looking a good carb blocking product, Tribitor is probably one of the best options available to you, but ask yourself why you want to block carb intake in the first place.
If your desire to block carbs is the result of a sincere desire to lose weight, you are looking at the wrong product and would obtain a far greater level of support, and much better results, by using a supplement that helps control hunger cravings, boosts the metabolism and (preferably) provides further support in other ways.
The level of benefit provided by Tribitor is far too limited. If your main goal is to find a way to limit the damage caused by high carb food, this product may help you to continue eating in an unhealthy way, but don't be fooled into thinking you will lose weight.
Even the best carb blockers only limit carb digestion. They don't prevent it entirely and it's also worth noting a lot of high carb food, such as chips and cakes, are also high in fat; so you will still have pretty good shot at gaining weight anyway.
