The Power of Three: Pharmachem Launches New 3 Phase System for Weight Control

KEARNY, NJ – Building on its long-term successful platform of Phase 2 Carb Controller™, Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc. has launched two new companion, proprietary weight management ingredients, Phase 1 Hunger Controller™, and Phase 3 Sugar Controller™, creating a unique, safe, clinically studied system of weight control products.

Called The Three Phases of Weight Control, the ingredient system addresses the many ways consumer gain weight, whether over eating, consuming too many carbs, or eating too much sugar.

“As we continue to thoroughly research obesity trends and eating habits as they affect weight gain and loss, we realized that portion size and sugar consumption are significant contributors to weight gain and poor health,” said Mitch Skop, senior director of product development for Pharmachem Laboratories.

“The Three Phases of Weight Control gives the manufacturer the option of introducing the entire system, or offering them separately as Phase 1 Hunger Controller, Phase 2 Carb Controller or Phase 3 Sugar Controller,” added Skop.

Phase 1 Hunger Controller™ is a convenient family of flavored beverage powders containing Olibra™ clinically shown to promote appetite control and satiety. A study published in the International Journal of Obesity showed that subjects who consumed foods containing Olibra had significantly reduced food intake at subsequent meals. Another study at Maastricht University, The Netherlands, showed the ingredient to be effective in helping subjects maintain their weight over a longer term of 18 weeks.

Phase 2 Carb Controller™ is a proprietary extract of the white bean clinically shown to reduce the digestion of starches. Its efficacy and safety have been confirmed in over two dozen separate studies.

Phase 3 Sugar Controller™ is a powdered formula shown to be effective in supporting health blood sugar levels. A new human study of Phase 3 Sugar Controller showed that 1.1 grams of the material had a significant effect on improving blood sugar and insulin levels after consumption of a beverage containing 70 grams of sugar.
