Formula: In our new
formula, we have induced the patented version of Chitosan called: LipoSan ULTRA®, it is a high-density form of Chitosan and in numerous independent laboratory studies, LipoSan ULTRA®, has proven to be 5 times more effective at binding to fat than regular chitosan. We have also added
Chromium which is an essential mineral to help with the normalization of glucose metabolism.
Chitosan Advanced acts
as a "Fat Blocker." By
attaching to fat particles, Chitosan prevents fat from being absorbed through
the intestinal tract. Instead, the fat bound to Chitosan passes safely through

A dietary fiber derived from chitin, a polysaccharide found in the outer shells (exoskeleton) of shellfish that is an effective weight loss and cholesterol-lowering aid. This insoluble, non-digestible fiber causes the molecular attraction and bonding of up to 12 times its weight in fatty oils- a process called polymerization. The gelled fat polymer is too large to be absorbed through the intestinal wall and travels through the body without being digested. According to clinical studies, weight loss averaged 8% of body weight over a 4-week test period.*
Taken 30-45 minutes before eating, chitosan can bond to some of the fat content in consumed food. The result is a fat polymer too large to be absorbed through the intestinal wall. Instead, the fat polymer passes safely through the digestive tract and is excreted from the body.*
Studies show that ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) helps activate chitosan in the stomach and intestine into a fat-absorbing gel. When ascorbic acid was given with chitosan to rats, far more fat was trapped and excreted in the feces than when chitosan was given without ascorbic acid. It is important to take pure ascorbic acid to enhance the fat-absorbing effects of chitosan. Here is the inexpensive addition to taking this Chitosan Advanced. Vitamin
C. Buffered or other forms have shown not to work like just plain ascorbic acid.
Once activated in the stomach, chitosan binds to some fatty acids and carries them through the digestive system without being absorbed. This helps reduce the number of fat calories digested by the body. With proper use as a dietary supplement, diet, and exercise, Chitosan works with your body and can be effective in helping to eliminate excess fat from your diet, supporting healthy weight loss and maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels.*
As a dietary supplement, Chitosan has been marketed for about 20 years in Europe and Japan as a "fat blocker". When combined with a sensible diet and moderate exercise, Chitosan can work with your body to help eliminate unwanted fat.*
LifeSource Vitamins has also included Chromium in this formula. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that works with insulin to support healthy blood glucose levels and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat, and carbohydrates*
