Chitosan (120 caps)
Chitosan is an aminopolysaccharide, derived from chitin which makes up the exoskeleton (shell) of crustaceans such as shrimp, lobster, and crab. It has been the subject of over 1500 studies. There has been many years of clinical research on Chitosan as a natural weight loss, fiber and colon cleansing supplement. It has also been used for many years in water purification, due to its remarkable ability to absorb oil, grease, and other toxic substances out of the water.
Chitosan is a beneficial soluble dietary fiber that is more fluid and more stable than others. It electromagnetically sweeps out cholesterol, fats and acids. Helps regulate blood sugar, resulting in reduced fat production in the cells. It reduces bad LDL cholesterol while increasing beneficial HDL. It will help reduce risk factors for obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. It promotes healing of ulcers and other lesions. It improves calcium metabolism and strengthens bones. It chelates heavy metals, and reduces uric acid levels in the bloodstream.
Fiber is such an important thing to have in our diet. Dietary fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans and seeds. It is not found in meat, dairy or refined foods. One benefit of fiber is that it binds to toxic bile acids and excess fats, reducing their absorption. Fiber provides bulk, producing a feeling of fullness which helps to reduce overeating. Fiber helps reduce bowel transit time, decreasing production and absorption of fecal toxins, while feeding the friendly flora. Fiber improves regularity, assists in elimination, aids digestion, and helps clean the bowels. Fiber is also important in lowering cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease, lowering high blood pressure, and improving blood sugar. Chitosan (pronounced ‘Key-toe-sahn’) provides all of these fiber benefits and more. Studies on diabetes show that Chitosan controls both blood and urine sugar much better than plant fiber. Chitosan can produce dramatic weight loss as proven in a clinical study in Helsinki. Participants lost an average of 8% of their body weight in fat in just one month, an average of more than 15 pounds per person. This is good news for the overweight and obese. The National Institute of Health states, “Obesity is the leading cause of heart disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, and even cancer.”
Chitosan is lipophilic, meaning that it is attracted to fat. Most fibers are hydrophilic, which means they repel fat and attract water. For example, straight psyllium fiber will absorb water, producing bulk while leaving fats behind that can contribute to constipation. Laboratory research comparing 23 different fibers proved that Chitosan worked 55% better than the next best fiber for eliminating fat from the intestinal tract.
