Product Count: 120/CT
Product Form: Capsules

Overview
Chitosan
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 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.

Research Indicates
  • May support healthy cholesterol balance
  • May support healthy circulation
  • Research is currently being conducted using Chitosan for several medicated wound dressing products
  • Scientists agree that healthy weight maintenance benefits of Chitosan may be plausible, but no clinical studies have been conducted to support such claims
Recommended Dosage
  • Take 3 - 6 capsules with 8 ounces of water prior to eating a high-fat meal.
Cautions
  • If you are pregnant or lactating, consult a health care practitioner prior to using this product.
  • Since Chitosan may prevent 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.
Psyllium Husks
Psyllium, an odorless and tasteless seed husk, is a member of the family Plantaginaceae, and is not related to wheat. There are several species of Psyllium but the seed husks from Plantago ovata are the best quality and have the highest fiber content. Psyllium husks are pure dietary fiber and they are not digested in the small intestine, but are partially broken down in the colon, where they act as a food source for friendly flora. Mostly, Psyllium acts as a sponge in the intestinal tract, swelling as it absorbs water and waste material in the bowels. This forms a soft, bulky mass that passes through the colon more quickly (keeping potentially toxic waste moving in the colon) and evacuates more smoothly and easily. The Food and Drug Administration has approved Psyllium to reduce cardiovascular disease risk with recent studies confirming risk reduction.

Research Indicates
  • Fiber is important for normal bowel function.
  • May support healthy blood pressure
  • May support healthy blood sugar balance
  • May support healthy cholesterol balance
Recommended Dosage
  • Take 3 - 6 capsules with 8 ounces of water prior to eating a high-fat meal.
Cautions
  • If you have chronic constipation, a bowel obstruction, an ulcer, diabetes, are obese or are pregnant or lactating, consult a health care practitioner prior to using this product.
  • Some individuals experience an allergic reaction when taking Psyllium. Some people may also have respiratory reactions to Psyllium dust. Call your health care practitioner or seek medical attention if you have fast or irregular breathing, skin rash, hives or itching.
  • Psyllium may cause gastrointestinal pain, flatulence and abdominal pain. Consult a health care practitioner if these side effects become severe or do not go away.
