Supplements sold as “starch blockers” or “carb blockers” are really starch-enzyme blockers; they inhibit the body’s production of the starch-digesting enzyme, alpha-amylase. With lessened amounts of alpha-amylase, the body is less able to break down starches (carbohydrates) into sugar (glucose) for further digestion. That’s how starch blockers work–at least on a theoretical level.
