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 features 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 works with insulin to support healthy blood glucose levels and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat, and carbohydrates.

Good fat blocker I have used this from time to time when consuming fatty foods(Fried) I do not use it daily but on the odd occasion in an effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle it is used.This is a good investment, one bottle would last a long time. September 20, 2013
it's actually helped me lose weight I have lost an inch around my stomach in fat,combination with CLA ...this product helps with weightloss simply in that it absorbs fat from the foods,that way the body starts to burn stored fat instead, resulting in fat loss, I have changed other eating with workout at least 5 days/week (30 m per day )...thank you swansonvitamins May 27, 2013
