Overview
Chitosan is a form of dietary fiber that is most commonly derived from the hard outer shell of such sea creatures as shrimp, crabs, and other shellfish. According to research, Chitosan may have the unique ability to bind to fats in the stomach, thus preventing the fats from being absorbed into the body. Scientists think this characteristic is linked to Chitosan's strong positive magnetic charge, which enables it to attract and bind to fats, which are negatively charged. The most common uses for Chitosan are for healthy weight maintenance and cholesterol balance.

Research Indicates
  • May reduce the body's absorption of cholesterol in the foods we eat
  • May be more effective at lowering cholesterol than oat gum
  • Scientists agree that the weight loss potential of Chitosan is plausible, but no studies have been able to support this
  • May support healthy circulation
  • When used topically, it can aid healing and recovery from skin grafts
  • Research is currently being conducted using Chitosan for several medicated wound dressing products
Recommended Dosage
  • Typical daily dosage is 350 - 1050 mgs; take 3 capsules with 8 ounces of water prior to a high fat meal.
Cautions
  • If you are pregnant or lactating, consult your health care practitioner prior to using this product.
  • Since Chitosan prevents the absorption of fats, it should not be taken along with fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) and it may inhibit the absorption of some medications.
