Ultimate Carb Control C-120X White Kidney Bean Extract
Poor quality control
I ordered 4 bottles to stock up in May 2013. They sent me products that were manufactured in 11/2011 which means I have 6 months to use them all. I buy in bulk, I still have 3 more bottles so I probably won't need the new ones until November of 2013. I returned them for a refund and wrote to tell them to send out new products. Three months later I tried restocking them again and they sent me the same stuff that was manufactured in 11/2011 which means I have 4-5 months to finish them. I think this is VERY bad practice and bad QA.

I have taken quite a few different carb control products. These tiny little pills outweigh all the others. They are so easy to take and allow me to enjoy my splurges.

Works when used in a complete program
While I believe this product does help a little. I think as an aid its okay. If your are looking to use this as a weight loss product you may have to give that some thought. There are no magic pills. This product is best bought on sale and it is pricey. I believe it helps and works, but ultimately you get the most gains by doing the complete deal of eating right, working out in some manner, and using this as an aid.

I had a bottle of these left in my medicine cabinet from the past and decided to try them again and really monitor my results. I am very surprised at the result! After spending the past couple of months working diligently to take off twelve pounds. I decided to incorporate some carbohydrates back into my diet. By taking one or two of these little babies (depending on the amount of carbs I am eating), it enables be me to treat myself w/o gaining weight. I LOVE this product!

It really works
I started taking these a couple of years ago and they really help. I cut back eating carbs but when I do eat simple carbs, take one and it really helps to cut down on the amount of sugars from going into your blood stream.

Been doing the lower carb diet thing for years and when I do load up on carbs, pasta,bread potatoes I'll take two before consumption and it does help. This will not make you lose weight, you still have to diet and get off your rear end and exercise.In away I just think it is over priced. Swanson runs two for one offers every month and I've been a customer for a long time and they had a twofer on this product just once. But still worth it.

Ultimate Carb Control C-120X White Kidney Bean Ext
I am pleased with the results. I am curious if this blocks nutrient absorption.

I've been using this product for at least two years on an as needed basis. It definitely has helped me to maintain and control my weght. I just take one before/during/or after eating something that I might want to splurge on or when I have those pasta cravings. You do not have to take this product prior to eating and it's easy to carry a few in your purse.

My husband and I take this as part of a low carb diet. We have been using this for a few years now and are happy with the results.

At this time I have not seen any change

Easy and Effective.
I like that you take these right before you have an urge to eat something high in carbs. You don't have to wait 30 min. Sometimes you just can't wait and it is great to have this available.

I don't know if I have taken it long enough to know for sure but it really doesn't seem to be working. Give me a while longer.

Small, easy to take, effective
I have used these little pills for carb control for several years. They are so small that I find it easy to take one even without liquid so I can use them anyplace at any time when I am going to have a HIGH CARB meal. I effectively lost weight using them... enough that my doctor ASKED what I had done to lose that much weight (about 25 pounds) between visits. Had I not had a satisfactory explanation, tests would have been ordered to see if there was a problem.
I had a friend challenge me about "HOW" I knew that they controlled carbs for me... so I did an experiment using about six different food items... candy, pasta, rice, potatoes, chocolate cake, & pecan pie. I would eat equal portions (one cup, one 3" piece, one bar) with and without using a c-120x tablet on different days & a few days apart. To see if my carb intake was affected, I checked blood glucose before eating the food serving... and 2 hours after eating the item. In every case (to a varying extent) the indications were that I absorbed fewer carbs into my system using the pill than I absorbed when I did not use the pill.

This really works
My husband bought the Ultimate Carb Control C-120X extract just a few days ago and With diet and exercise, my stomach has been shrinking. The tiny tabs. are so small it is so easy to swallow. By the way, I am a new customer and I cannot believe this pill works so well. First day I took the pill, I felt full and I ate less food. After I ate I felt very full but comfortable. You have no problems with stomach aches. You feel very satisfied with eating smaller portions. I would certainly refer this product to friends and family. I also bought the ultimate apple cider vinegar pills, but have not received them yet. I cannot hardly wait to take them. I know I will have great results. I will keep you informed. Thank you Swanson for cheap prices and excellent products.

Love this product. It totally works for me. Took through thanksgiving and didn't gain any weight which was shocking considering how much I splurged. I recommend this product to anyone who likes to eat carbs and not have to pay for it later!

Used last Thanksgiving. . .
I have been watching my weight, as usual, so last Thanksgiving I decided to take two of these tablets to block 150 carbs, since I planned on eating alot. Well, they filled me up so much that I could only eat a fraction of what I usually eat. I get the feeling that these pills expand in my stomach (and hopefully carry away alot of the carbs that I have eaten). I split them in half for normal meals since I usually try to watch my carbs in general. Tiny pill that is easy to swallow.

I think these are very helpful in helping to control carbs. I have bought many times. I just think they are a little spendy.

Helps me cheat
This product is very helpful if you want to cut on carbs when you dieting. It doesn't give you gas.

Seems to work
I think this works! I don't lose weight, but I don't gain weight when I eat extra carbs and I can only attribute that to this product. I like that it is such a small pill, making it easy to carry and to swallow.

This product REALLY HELPS!
I don't have much weight to lose, but this is the first product I've found that REALLY DID HELP. I had struggled for MONTHS to lose 5 lbs and couldn't get it off, but when I started using this with a low carb diet, that 5 lbs FINALLY came off! Now I'm working on the next 5 that I need to lose.

I have tried many other carb blockers and this is the best by far. Worth the extra money for sure.
May 12, 2012
I first tried this product when it came out use 4-5 month no results. Used it again 1year later still no results.

Much better than 5 horse pills
My wife was taking the regular white bean extract. These are just as effective but much smaller and easier to swallow.

c120x ultimate carb control
i'm an inveterate carb counter: no pasta, rice, potatoes, sugar...although i haven't eaten these since i starting using c120x, i tried eating more complex carb items and taking it. the verdict on c120x: it's either my imagination or it REALLY WORKS. no weight gain in 3 months. excellent product for me, although it's pricey. i hope you have periodic sales or BOGO on it soon.
