Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok I have not noticed much other than my stomach not feeling so bloated after a heavy meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been using for over 20 years with the good result. Helps my bad habit to consume comfort foods late night :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement to eat fat and not absorb it I usually take this fat supplement before dinner daily. Once in a while I will take during the day for fat lunch.I like using this Chitosan because you take it with your meal with a glass of water. I don't worry about fat sticking to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product if you do your part Be sure you understand that this supplement blocks the intestines from absorbing fat (good and bad fat), so if you take any other supplements/medication/vitamins that require fat to get into your system, you will block them if taken at the same time as this supplement. I was happy with the product and made a point of taking all other supplements and vitamins first thing in the morning, then I used this product with my lunch and dinner meals. Since you can take it at the same time you eat, it was very convenient. On top of that, I made sure to work out about four days to compound the benefit of blocking new fat. In the morning, I also made sure to take a supplement that focuses the body on burning fat before muscle. I only gave it four leaves for Effectiveness, because it isn't a miracle supplement; you have to do your part to get better results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No effect Saw this product on Dr. Oz so I thought I'd try it. It was a waste of money. Certainly will no purchase again.
Date published: 2014-09-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A far better Chitosan I have used a (hard pill) Chitosan before but it just swelled to a ball , causing constipation ,but the powder in capsule form not only avoids this side effect but will absorb more fat quicker. The only thing I marked it down for is that there are much cheaper fibers out there but they don't work as well on fat

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liposan I have been taking this with a combination of Glucoman and cider vineger, I have lost 4 pounds in one month with a proper diet and walking briskly for an hour at least every day ,In all honesty I can not tell if it was this product's effectiveness was what caused the weight loss, with all the other factors taken into consideration I would give it some of the credit but not all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if works or not, just take because of what I've heard/read it can do for me.
Date published: 2014-04-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective for weight loss I take one capsule with every evening meal and once in a while at lunch if I am eating out or am having a particularly high in fat meal. Liposan helps to absorb the fat from a meal. Won't be without this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liposan This product has served me well in my approach to weight management.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with Weight Loss This product combined with a sensible diet helped me shed a few lbs. It helps with keeping things moving too. Loved the other reviews so tried this... will order again as the chitosan is excellent for regulating us baby boomers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great weight loss formula I've taken other weight loss formulas, but ths is by far the best I've ever used. I've lost 27lbs using this product it really works.
Date published: 2013-08-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a Bad Product I like being able to take this product right when I eat rather than having to remember to take it a certain amount of time before eating. I also like that there is not any nasty flavor. I don't generally see big results when continuing to eat fatty, unhealthy foods and not doing some kind of exercise a couple of times a week. I get the best results when I use portion control when eating and limiting the fatty or unhealthy foods. I also exercise 4-5 times a week from 10 to 30 minutes. I started at about 120 lbs. this last time I started taking these and am now down to 114 (5' tall) in about 2 mos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well! I have used this product for years. Easy to take and makes me feel full very quickly so I eat less. Help to maintain weight with no side effects. Great price too from Swanson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good Been getting this for sometime now and for me it really keeps my weight in control and is a great product :)
Date published: 2013-05-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works if you do I've written two positive, detailed reviews for this product but have never seen them published here. Therefore, this will be quick and to the point [besides my battery is about to die]. . . , I've read others reviewed on this product and the negative ones are the result of those people want to do things "the easier, softer way." In other words, this isn't some miracle pill that's gonna do all the work for you—you have to help it along. I watch my fat intake and it's become a habit and way of life now to always read labels to check the fat content, trying to keep it under 20 grams per day. I try the light, low-fat, or fat-free versions of products and was surprised at how palatable a lot of them are (believe me when I say there are lots that are horrible too). I certainly found that fat-free sour cream is delicious if you mix an envelope of dry onion soup with it with Pringles fat free chips, or whatever other low fat chips you desire. Dieting sucks but it doesn't have to be hard or make you miserable. I use the chitosan as a "help" to a low-fat diet. I don't pig out and expect the chitosan to do all the work. This is a great product and it's the only brand I saw results with and knew I wasn't imagining it. No side effects, no fishy taste or smell. The bottom line: IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely Recommend I've been using this product for at least two years on an as needed basis. It definitely has helped me to maintain and control my weght. I just take a couple before/during/or after eating something that I might want to splurge on. You do not have to take this product prior to eating and it's easy to carry a few in your purse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swanson Quality My husband and I have been using this fat blocker for years along with our low carb diet. We are happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on Market I have used these for years & they work great. Always have them with me wherever I go. Will continue to buy these as long as they are available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have lost fat in my legs and but. Not a fast thing but slow and steady

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable Product Very easy to use.Has allowed me to treat myself on occasion and not feel guilty.
Date published: 2013-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have only been taking this product for about 2 days. I don't know if I am losing weight yet, but I take it right before a meal, and about 10 minutes later, I begin to feel really great. I also cut down food portion size too, which is typical with dieting, but I have had no negative effects from this product. Every time I take it with food, I feel great.
Date published: 2013-02-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been using for years This product has helped me maintain a healthy weight and regulate my digestion. I have used this product for years and will continue to use it. I have recomended it to many people.
