Fabenol® belongs to the group of alpha-amylase inhibitory natural extract obtained from Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean, kidney bean) that blocks the digestion of dietary starch, thus providing remarkable benefits in the maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels and adequate body composition.
Fabenol® is available in two strengths:
- Fabenol®: Standardized to alpha-amylase inhibitory activity 8,000 units/g
- Fabenol® Max: Standardized to alpha-amylase inhibitory activity 20,000 units/g
The seeds of Phaseolus vulgaris contain an inhibitor of alpha-amylase. This alpha-amylase inhibitor is identified in the protein fraction of the bean. This protein binds with the active sites of alpha-amylase and prevents the starch metabolizing activity; hence it is also called as “Starch Blocker“.
The mechanism of action of P. vulgaris alpha-amylase inhibitors involves an indirect approach to weight loss by inhibiting starch breakdown and of sugar assimilation. Therefore, these phytocomponents are also called as “Carbo-blockers”. Due to inhibition of alpha-amylase the breakdown process gets inhibited and the complex carbohydrate has a higher probability of elimination without being assimilated into the body as storage fat.
