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 the body.*

Articles, and Studies:
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 (
) 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.
. The buffered form of Vitamin C has shown not to work the same as plain ascorbic
acid (Vitamin C).
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
