Blocks sugar absorption well
 October 14, 2012
"But it does not stop cravings for sugar. That will take will power. This product allows you to cheat every once in a while and not worry about it as each capsule can block up to 25 grams of sugar from being absorbed.
If you want to see what it tastes like to not taste sweet at all open up a capsule and lick the contents, then eat something sweet. :) it lasts about 45 minutes or so."
