I went to BJ's tonight and saw it and bought it. It tastes pretty good. Just sipping on my first one now. Don't know if it will work tho. Found this info online, and just thought I'd pass it along here for your consideration.


Great tasting CARB CRUSHER™ natural tea with lemon contains GCA™ a patent pending all natural ingredient that reduces carbohydrate and calorie absorption without stimulants or gastrointestinal discomfort. GCA along with sensible diet and exercise provides an excellent nutritional component for individuals on a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. GCA is the answer for reducing carbohydrate and calorie absorption in the digestive and hepatic systems without stimulants or causing gastrointestinal discomfort. GCA reduces the amount of carbohydrates (sugar and starches) absorbed from a meal. Additionally, even when you're not eating, GCA inhibits stored sugars from supplying your energy needs, forcing our bodies to initiate the burning of fat as an energy source.

CRUSH the Carbs and Calories on your ENTIRE menu. No need for special menus and new recipes in the kitchen. Now a solution is available that makes it quick and easy to enter the Low-Carb Revolution - thanks to Carb Crusher™. Carb Crusher™ is the latest from the team of nutrition experts that represent the Florida-based ITC (Innovative Technologies Corporation of America, Inc.). This delicious tea is the only beverage to contain an extract of the patent-pending ingredient, GCA™. When used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program, Carb Crusher™ can assist in the reduction of the body’s absorption of calories and carbohydrates (both simple and complex) in the digestive and hepatic systems without stimulants. Whether you’re counting calories, calculating sugar intake, or watching which carbs you ingest, this is GREAT news. Not only has the expert team at ITC finally provided everyone who wants to lose weight with a sound nutritional answer for reducing carbohydrate and calorie absorption in the digestive and hepatic systems, but they’ve done it WITHOUT any added stimulants, and WITHOUT causing the typical gastrointestinal discomfort commonly experienced with competitors in pill form. In test markets, these were very important aspects contributing to the overall high quality of this product.

How does Carb Crusher work?
The key ingredient in Carb Crusher™ is GCA, an extract made from unroasted green coffee beans, which is an outstanding nutritional ingredient for individuals on a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. Specifically, GCA reduces the amount of carbohydrates that get absorbed (of both simple and complex carbohydrates) in the digestive and hepatic systems by inhibiting the active transport of sugar into the body. PLUS…even when you're not eating, GCA is still working to inhibit sugar being released from the body’s glycogen stores (which are found in the liver and muscle). This results in forcing our bodies to initiate the burning of fat sooner as an energy source. That means is that Carb Crusher™ can be taken on an empty stomach, or taken at night since there is no added caffeine or stimulants.

Scientifically Proven
One of the key constituents of GCA is Chlorogenic Acid, the subject of numerous studies which show that it inhibits a critical enzyme involved in the metabolism of simple and complex carbohydrates without causing any gastrointestinal discomfort. The active compounds of GCA have the ability to reduce the absorption of consumed carbohydrates in the digestive and hepatic systems, thereby having a positive effect on glucose management, blood glucose levels, and weight management. “Now you can have a ‘cheat day’ at home or your favorite restaurant and feel a little less guilty,” says Steven Smith, CEO/ President of ITC, and exclusive marketer of this unique product. “The feedback we’ve gotten from our test markets is astoundingly positive. Whether people are counting calories, eliminating carbs, or watching glucose levels, they’ve all reported that Carb Crusher™ is a powerful ally that helped them take the weight off.” People who used this product feel that, finally, someone has created a product that helps take the stress out of most any diet when used as part of an overall plan that includes a sensible diet and exercise. In addition to the GCA Green Coffee Extract, ingredients also include pure filtered water, natural tea concentrate from tea leaves, and natural lemon flavors, sweetened with Splenda® brand sucralose. Carb Crusher™ has 0 calories and contains no artificial colors or flavors.
