Chitoglucan is a patented bioactive component of the edible enokitake mushroom, obtained through hot water extraction of the fruiting body, followed by alkali treatment of the extracted liquid. The resulting extract is a unique complex of chitosan, beta glucans, fatty acids, fiber, and glyconjugates.
- Reduces body weight and BMI*
- Trims body fat and visceral (abdominal) fat*
- Shrinks waist circumference*
- Help maintain cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood glucose levels already within a healthy range*
For best results, chitoglucan should be combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise program.
Mechanism of Action
Chitoglucan works in two different ways to aid weight reduction:*
- The beta glucans prevent the absorption of fat by trapping and repelling fat from the mucosa through coating the gastrointestinal walls,
- The fatty acids have a beneficial effect on lipid and glucose metabolism*
Numerous studies, including two specifically designed to test safety, have found no adverse effects in subjects using chitoglucan., Unlike some weight loss products, chitoglucan does not interfere with the absorption of minerals in food consumed.* Chitosan also offers an alternative to crustacean-derived chitosan, for vegetarians and those who do not consume shellfish for safety or religious reasons.
