Chitosan is a new 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 previously been associated with the meaty portions of certain shellfish.
Like other fibers, Chitosan is indigestible, and can reduce "transit time", which is the time it takes for foods to pass through the digestive system and out of the body.* Therefore, less fats in general, including cholesterol, sterols, fatty acids, and essential fatty acids are available to be absorbed. Dietary fiber is usually deficient in modern diets where foods are more highly processed. Fiber tends to increase stool bulk, hydration and acts as a catalyst for colonic microflora, all of which speed transit time, and produce a softer stool.*

As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules wtih 8 ounces of water thirty to forty minutes prior to one or two meals per day, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
A high quality essential fatty acid supplement such as flax seed oil, along with ample supplemental fat soluble nutrients 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. Anyone under medical care for degenerative conditions, or using medications, should consult a health professional before using Chitosan.
