Product Description

Size: 240

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. 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.

Customer Reviews

Soon after I take this, I get fish breath/burps.
psarro
The doctor warned me again that the meds I take will harm my liver, and liver test also was elevated.
Vintner Don
Probably more of a placebo than an actually 'working' product.

I had an annual cholesterol test, and it was high as it always is. The doctor warned me again that the meds I take will harm my liver, and liver test also was elevated. I had to find a way to lower the levels. I started taking both Chitosan and Red Yeast Rice. After 3 months, I had another blood test done. After I have been taking this combination for just 3 months, my cholesterol had dropped 40 points. I have had only one test since starting the supplements, so can not say for sure if it was a fluke, or if it truly does reduce the cholesterol level. I do believe it is helping. This was my second batch of supplements, and until I find that my blood test proves differently, I will continue to take this combination. Your results may differ from mine.

I take this before eating fatty foods and I noticed that my weight has
been staying a few pounds below normal. It also helps with digestion and
I've been told cholesterol as well. I like it. Not sure what it's actually
doing but it's all been positive.

Does what it says it will do; absorbs dietary fat and sends it on through the body without its being stored in fat cells. May cause a little diarrhea until you get used to it, but the end result is worth it.

I have been using chitosan [as ALLI] for over ten years now. It has the same effect, though you must take two or more capsules. get the pure kind like this one.

it is a nice break from alli as I find alli is REALLY good when eating REALLY FATTY foods, but chitosan is a bit milder, and same effect.

I use this one almost daily, and the fat is down to 6%.

ALLI is a mega option to get the really fatty ones.

remember to take a multi-vitamin, as in fat soluable types, these products stip those vitamins and you need supplements.

FDA approved this way before ALLI as a viable fat-blocker: check out their site.

I've taken chitosan for years iff and on. I do believe this has helped me to keep the my fat absorbtion low. When I don't take it u feel like I gain more fat. I've only used Now brand products and feel they have the highest potency of the product in each capsule. I take 3 500mg before a high fat meal

I have been using NOW Chitosan for 6 years. I take a couple about 15 minutes before eating anything with a bunch of fat, i.e. meat, chips, dairy, coffee with cream, etc. A couple weeks ago I ran out and was too lazy to buy more. This morning I got on the scale and gained 3 lbs in 2 weeks. I haven't done ANYTHING differently, still eat the same, workout, sleep the same, etc. I just ordered another bottle and will see if I loose the weight after getting back on-track.

Who woulda thought!
