Chitosan is a new dietary fiber derived from chitin, a 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 shellfish.
Like other fibers, Chitosan is indigestible, and can reduce "transit time", which is the time it takes for foods to 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 speed transit time, and produce a softer stool.
Warnings: Avoid this product if you are allergic to shellfish, pregnant or lactating.
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. Not recommended for children or teenagers.
Notes: This nutrient is of the highest quality and purity obtainable, free of all common allergens (antigens), and does not contain preservatives, diluents, or artificial additives. Keep in a cool, dry place, tightly capped.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, 2 capsules with 8 ounces of water thirty to forty minutes prior to one or two meals per day, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
