Chitosan is a new dietary fiber derived from chitin, an animated polysaccharide, derived from the shells of crustaceans. Chitosan does not contain any appreciable amounts of toxic minerals such as mercury which have previously been associated with the meaty portions of certain shell fish.
Like other fibers, Chitosan is indigestible, is free of calories, and can reduce the transit time foods pass through the digestive system and out of the body. Therefore less fats, in general, including cholesterol, sterols, fatty acids, and essential fatty acids are available to be absorbed. Dietary fiber is usually deficient in modern diets where foods are more highly processed. Fiber tends to increase stool bulk, hydration and acts as a catalyst for colonic microflora, all of which speeds transit time, and produces a softer stool.
Each capsule contains:
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules with 8 ounces of water thirty to forty minutes prior to one or two meals per day, or as directed by a physician.
Warning: A high quality essential fatty acid supplement such as flax seed oil, along with ample supplemental fat soluble nutrients vitamins A, D, E, and K should be taken at a meal apart from Chitosan supplementation Drink at least 64 oz., or 8 full glasses of pure water a day
Anyone under medical care for degenerative conditions, or using medications, should consult a health professional before using Chitosan. Avoid this product if you are allergic to shell fish, pregnant or lactating. Not recommended for children or teenagers.
