Chitosan is a dietary fiber derived from the shells of crustaceans. NOW Chitosan contains LipoSan Ultra, a patented high-density form of 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 help maintain healthy blood glucose levels that are already in normal range and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat and carbohydrates.*
