Chitosan is a carbohydrate polymer that is extracted from the outer shell of crustaceans like shrimps, prawns, lobsters, shellfish and crabs. Chitosan binds to the lipids in the digestive track to help prevent their metabolism, which in turn helps in weight management.
The chitins present in chitosan are positively charged amino polysaccharide molecules that absorb the negatively charged fats and lipids and helps to prevent them from entering the blood stream. Chitosan supports heart health by promoting the levels of HDL “good” cholesterol in blood. It helps maintain healthy blood pressure.
Chitosan can also help absorb calcium thereby maintaining bone health. It also contributes to digestive health.
Suggested Usage:As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 3 times daily, 30 minutes before each meal along with 2-3 glasses of water or as directed by a healthcare professional.
