NOW Chitosan is a natural dietary fiber extracted from shellfish that may block the absorption of fat and cholesterol and act as a diet supplement.

What is NOW Chitosan?

Chitosan is a dietary fiber derived from crustaceans that can bind to fat and cholesterol in the digestive tract, helping to maintain cholesterol levels already within healthy range.

NOW® Chitosan features LipoSan ULTRA®, a patented high density form of Chitosan that, in laboratory testing, binds up to five times more fat than conventional Chitosan. A clinical study has demonstrated that LipoSan ULTRA® may aid in supporting a healthy body weight.

Health Benefits of NOW Chitosan

Chitosan is a natural, fat-binding, dietary fiber. Since fiber is not digested in the body, it will bind with fat and can assist in moving fat through the intestine without it being absorbed. Fat that is not absorbed cannot contribute to weight gain. Of course you still need to eat a nutritional diet and exercise to maintain a healthy weight in addition to any diet supplements you may take.

Why our NOW Chitosan is a Good Choice!

In addition to 500 mg of Chitosan, this product is also formulated with Chromium, a mineral essential for normal glucose metabolism. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that works with insulin to help maintain healthy blood glucose levels that are already in normal range and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Select NOW Chitosan from Whole Health in this high density form that can assist with losing weight and decreasing fat absorption in your body.

Why Do Dieters Use It?*

Some dieters say that chitosan helps decrease appetite.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Chitosan has been shown to inhibit fat absorption in animals, although in studies in humans chitosan did not inhibit fat absorption. Some research has found that taking chitosan during a weight loss program increases the amount of weight loss. In other studies, however, chitosan was ineffective.

It is important to note that supplementing with chitosan will also cause the body to excrete the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, too.
