Chitosan is a dietary fiber derived from the shells of crustaceans that has been shown in non-clinical studies to bind to fat and cholesterol in the digestive tract. NOW Chitosan contains LipoSan Ultra, a patented high-density form of Chitosan that binds up to five times more fat than conventional Chitosan according to laboratory testing. A published clinical study has demonstrated that LipoSan Ultra, taken as directed, may aid in the support of healthy body weight and serum cholesterol levels already within the normal range. NOW has also included Chromium in this formula. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that helps to support healthy blood glucose levels and the proper utilization of protein, fat and carbohydrates.
You have to make sure you eat properly to achieve maximum effect for this product, but it helps you not gain weight when you go out for dinner or want to have the occasional splurge. If you use this in conjunction with a healthy diet, you WILL lose weight! I bought this as well as the Starch Blocker and I never really have to worry about what I'm eating making me gain.
