Specialized Activated Charcoal Is First True OTC Fat Absorption Blocker

Share Article

The world's most versatile and powerful adsorbent now has a new application: oral over-the-counter fat blocker. Carbostat, by Senscina, contains a specialized form of pharmaceutical grade low-dose activated carbon to specifically target dietary fat and block its absorption.

Activated charcoal has been used for hundreds of years as an adsorbent and purifier. With the recent success of the prescription fat blocker orlistat, it was only a matter of time before the most potent and versatile adsorbent and purifier ever known be refined to a grade and quality that seeks out and specifically targets dietary fat.

Carbostat, Nature's Calorie Filter, has been introduced by Senscina LLC, of Cincinnati, Ohio. Each capsule contains 400mg of activated carbon formulated in what they term a "mesopore matrix", maximizing the carbon's affinity for dietary fats, fatty acids, carbohydrates, and cholesterol. Although the cholesterol reducing properties of activated carbon have been known since the late 1970's, it is only now that the proper grade and refinement has been formulated into a marketable dosage form that is easy to use with a minimum of side effects.

"Using highly mesoporous activated carbon in a very low, specific dose is the key," says Todd McFarland, pharmacist, and creator of Carbostat, "Our formulation maximizes the available mesopore concentration in a pharmaceutical grade activated charcoal. The result is one of the world's purest activated charcoal formulas, with a high degree of preference for the size and solubility of those molecules that contribute the largest amount of calories to the American diet. This puts the ideal natural calorie filter in the right place, at the right time, easily bettering any fat blocker ever marketed, over-the-counter or prescription."

"Carbostat begins to block absorption of fat and cholesterol with the first dose. Combined with the proper level of caloric intake and lifestyle modification, I am convinced that most consumers will find Carbostat the catalyst for weight management they find most valuable."

Carbostat is available at select pharmacies and on the Carbostat nature's calorie filter web site.
