Description of Diet Chitosan 500mg 60 caps from Source Naturals
Breakthrough Dietary Fiber
250 mg and 500 mg
Chitosan, a fiber derived from chitin in shellfish, is classified as a nondigestible
aminopolysaccharide. Chitosan is synthesized by removing acetyl groups from
chitin, through a process called deacetylation. Although the mechanism by which
chitosan works is still being researched, animal studies have shown that chitosan
binds with bile salts in the digestive tract, reduces the absorption of certain
dietary fats (like cholesterol and oleic acid), and plays a role in maintaining
healthy serum cholesterol levels in laboratory animals. (Results of animal studies
may not extrapolate to humans.) When taken as part of the Maximum Metabolism
Weight Loss Plan, body fat may be reduced.
