I wouldn’t be terribly surprised. Carb Blockers typically inhibit the enzyme Amylase (which breaks down carbs) from becoming produced so the carbs would go through your method undigested comparable to fiber… but not the very same consistency as fiber. Carb Blockers and Fat Blockers can wreak all sorts of havoc with regularity so some people get looser stools (which includes oily stools), some get much more constipated (depending on what they eat). It’s typically healthier to just steer clear of certain sorts of foods if you do not want the dietary impact from them than to take some thing to prevent them from becoming digested and this is one reason for that in specific.
With all that becoming said, the Amino Acids most likely shouldn’t be causing it, but again, it depends on what all is being taken (eg. if it’s a milk-based drink, dairy can be constipating). If you aren’t drinking sufficient water (and the excess carbs not being broken down can call for a lot more depending on how a lot you eat), that can cause constipation… but also if you’re consuming a lot of carbs with a Carb Blocker, that can cause issues. You could attempt consuming far more fiber, drinking more water, and/or not eating as a lot of carbs with the blocker to see if that assists. Very good luck and I hope I helped!
