Chitosan 1000 - Original Overview

Chitosan is a type of fiber made from chitin found in shellfish. One form is used industrially to remove oil from water and even to clean oil spills. In a dietary supplement form it also has oil and fat binding properties to control blood lipid levels and supports healthy stool formation. The specialized Chitosan from Natural Balance is denser and more soluble, resulting in more effective binding to fat in your diet. If you're looking to lose weight and or just want to maintain healthy fat levels, Natural Balance Chitosan can help.

Chitosan 1000 - Original Description from Natural Balance
CHITOSAN is an insoluble or non-digestible fiber. Marine-sourced chitosan is produced from chitin, which is part of the shells of crustaceans including shrimp, crabs and lobsters.

Some studies suggest that diet rich in fiber can help reduce the transit time of foods in the digestive system so less fat is available to be absorbed. Additionally, chitosan is not digestible and therefore has no caloric value. Taken before meals, fiber may help provide nutritive support for healthy weight management.
