Let’s Talk Calocurb Side Effects

They’re rare – but it can happen.

So, you’re thinking of trying Calocurb, or maybe you’ve just bought your first bottle. Either way, you’re keen to read up on what to expect when you first start taking it. When taking a brand new supplement most people worry about any unexpected changes that might occur in their body, and we value transparency, so let’s talk potential Calocurb side effects!

We love product research, and as do our friends at Plant and Food Research NZ – who discovered Amarasate™, our bitter compound found in Calocurb! Trying a new product is exciting—we’ll be the first ones to admit to tearing open a courier package as soon as it arrives at work—there’s no judgement here.

However, it’s great to know when you are trying a new supplement or vitamin – how it could affect you. Let’s dive into what our scientific research has shown could be potential side effects when you first start taking Calocurb.

Remember: Calocurb is a natural product with only three plant-based ingredients including Rosemary extract, Canola oiland most importantly Amarasate (our active ingredient). So, if you do encounter any of these side-effects, keep in mind that they are completely normal and safe.

PREPARING FOR THE DETOX

When you first start taking Calocurb, you may encounter a laxative effect, resulting in a cleansing of the bowel within the first 24-48 hours.

Hey, it’s ok – we can talk about it!

As one of Calocurb’s three ingredients is a bitter compound (which is an active ingredient) – when you first start taking it your body may think, ‘woah, now this is different’, and work to get rid of what you have ingested. This is rare – but it’s nothing to worry about!

It acts as a bit of a detox and can be a good starting point to flush your system before you head into your Calocurb routine. It may be accompanied by mild stomach irritations and a bit of nausea in some cases – but your digestive system will quickly get used to the natural signal that Calocurb triggers from your upper intestine (where is releases and gets to work); and these will stop.

Just like any other detox - it’s a spring clean for your body – but check out what some of our other customers have said about their own experience.

HOPPY TASTING BURBS? YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT.

How does Calocurb work with your system? Well, with all active ingredients you take in the form of a supplement or food, there is the potential for a different reaction. Each person’s digestive system is different, so no two experiences are the same. 

What we have found through our clinical research is that some Calocurb users have reported a feeling of slight indigestion when they first start taking Calocurb.

This is again due to your amazing digestive system working out how to process the bitter compound (extracted from New Zealand Hops) and making sure it’s triggering the right signals to help manage your appetite. You may also experience a hoppy tasting burb…ahem, yes – just like you’ve drunk a fresh NZ craft beer.

Now this may sound like heaven to you (hello craft beer lovers), or it may sound not so great. It’s important to remember that this happens very rarely, and if it does happen, the side effect will pass as your body gets used to taking Calocurb.

SO, YOU’RE ALL SET TO GET GOING WITH CALOCURB…HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

A lot of our customers don’t feel any side effects at all, but we have had others letting us know that they have experienced what we’ve just run through. So, for us – we like to ensure all of our customers are happy and up to speed on all things Calocurb!

Before you begin – we have a few golden rules we like to start people off with:

 

1. TAKE ONLY ONE CAPSULE PER DAY FOR THE FIRST 48 HOURS

Let yourself get used to the active ingredient first before you get stuck into your Calocurb routine. After 48 hours, you can take one capsule – twice per day 4 hours apart.



2. DO NOT OPEN THE CAPSULE.

Our specifically designed capsule releases in the upper digestive system instead of the stomach (where things are usually absorbed), so it can get to work in the right area to trigger the natural signal to help manage your appetite and cravings.



3. CALOCURB IS BEST TAKEN WITH WATER ON AN EMPTY STOMACH. 

This helps the efficiency of getting Calocurb where it needs to go in your digestive system and releasing at the correct point. However, if you do encounter any of these side effects, try taking another Calocurb with a bit of food (half a banana) to help ease this initial experience.

If you do start feeling some of these side effects when you first start taking Calocurb, don’t worry! These experiences are completely normal, safe and documented. It means Calocurb is starting to work for you!

The side effects should subside and disappear after the first 24 to 48 hours, however if you find these are persisting – get in touch with us for further advice or a full refund within 30 days. We aren’t in the business of leaving people disappointed – so we want to make sure we’re with you every step of the way on your health journey with Calocurb.
