Chitosan is a dietary fiber derived from chitin, a polysaccharide derived from the shells of crustaceans. Chitosan does not contain any appreciable amounts of toxic minerals such as mercury, which have been found in the meaty portions of certain shellfish. Like other fibers, Chitosan tends to increase stool bulk and hydration, and acts as a catalyst for colonic microflora, all of which helps support normal transit time.*
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, 2 capsules with 8 ounces of water thirty to forty minutes prior to one or two meals per day, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
WARNING: A high quality essential fatty acid supplement such as flax seed oil, along with ample fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K should be taken at a meal apart from Chitosan supplementation. Drink at least 64 oz, or 8 full glasses of pure water a day. Avoid this product if you are allergic to shellfish, pregnant or lactating. Not recommended for children or teenagers.
