Tribitor Carb Blocker – Lessens the effects of high carbohydrate content foods
Why You Might Buy It: It has some good ingredients
Why You Might Not: It’s not PhenQ
Our Opinion: It’s hard to beat the weight loss benefits that are offered by PhenQ
Tribitor is a carb blocking supplement distributed by a Polish company called MarMar Investments.
With a name like that, we’re guessing the company HAS very little to do with the manufacturing process and have to wonder if this is a white label product.
If this should prove to be the case, the same formulation could be on sale elsewhere under any number of different brand names, but that’s not to say the product will not work.
Most carb blocking products are only designed to limit carbohydrate digestion. This lowers the daily calorie intake because carbohydrate normally provides four calories per gram, and any carbohydrate that is not processed does not provide any calories at all.
Tribitor works in this way as well, but also contains ingredients that have been carefully chosen for their ability to reduce the glycemic index, thereby further preventing weight gain and reducing the likelihood of diabetes and cardiovascular disease (often associated with high GI food like cake, pasta, and chips).
Tribitor Advertised Benefits
According to the marketing material, using this product 15 minutes before carb-rich meals reduces the glycemic index and helps diminish the health consequences associated with eating carbohydrates:
- Sugar cravings
- Late night eating
- Post-meal slumps
- Belly fat
How Tribitor Works
Carbohydrate is usually split into two groups. Complex carbs like brown bread, oatmeal, and fruit have a low glycemic index.
They deliver their calories slowly and are good for providing long-lasting energy. Simple carbs like white bread, potato, cakes, and confectionery have a high glycemic index and are absorbed very quickly.
This provides the body with a quick blast of energy. It also pushes the blood sugar level up considerably.
The body responds to this by releasing insulin to bring the blood sugar level down. Insulin is so good at this the blood sugar level often falls so low it results in a desire to eat more food—especially sweet food.
Not surprisingly, simple carbs are best avoided by anyone who wishes to lose weight. Simple carbs are bad for the body in other ways as well and are known to increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
If Tribitor can do the things it’s supposed to do it could seem like a very attractive option for anyone who wishes to continue eating lots of potatoes and cakes etc. without piling on the pounds, but an attitude like that is not healthy and will not help anyone who is serious about becoming slimmer.
Unfortunately, MarMar investments could be accused of encouraging people to foster such an attitude because the Tribitor marketing material states it will help you to “enjoy your meal with less consequence”.
Each sachet contains:
- White Kidney Bean Extract (1.2g): A popular starch blocking ingredient. Many diet pill manufacturers offer carb blocking products that contain white kidney bean because it disrupts the activity of the digestive enyzme amylase, which is responsible for processing carbohydrate.
- White Mulberry Leaf Extract (600mg): Some research suggests white mulberry extract suppresses insulin production and improves glucose tolerance.
- Green Coffee Bean Extract (400mg): A popular diet pill ingredient that provides chlorogenic acid. Although it’s abilities are likely to be eclipsed by chromium (a more popular diet pill choice), the chlorogenic acid provided by green coffee bean extract appears to have the ability to limit insulin secretion.
Other than a single comment, published on the product website, we were unable to find any Tribitor customer reviews.

The Final Judgment
Although the price of this product is very good, the guarantee period is poor.
Two weeks is not nearly long enough to allow anyone to fully evaluate the abilities of a product of this nature.
Dieters who buy any of the leading weight loss products, such as PhenQ, are given a 60-day money back guarantee.
They will also have a better chance of success because all the best weight management supplements are designed to offer dieters support in many areas by providing ongoing hunger control, encouraging the body to burn calories and fat at an accelerated rate, and delivering other benefits that make it easier to lose weight in a safe and efficient way.
Although we were unable to find any customer reviews, we suspect Tribitor will be capable of helping people to enjoy a high-carb meal with less consequences, but “less” is the key word here.
Carb blockers only block some of the carbohydrate the diet provides and, unless they are used alongside a low-calorie diet and exercise, their use is unlikely to prevent further weight gain—especially when people are eating a diet that regularly provides a lot of simple carbs.
