Chitosan is a dietary fiber derived from crustaceans that can bind to fat and cholesterol in the digestive tract, helping to maintain cholesterol levels already within healthy range. NOW® Chitosan features LipoSan ULTRA®, a patented high-density form of Chitosan that in laboratory testing, binds up to five times more fat than conventional Chitosan. A critical study has demonstrated that LipoSan ULTRA® may aid in the supporting healthy body weight. Chromium, a mineral essential for normal glucose metabolism, has been included to complete this formula.
