How Liposan Products Are Effective for Weight Management

As a naturally fibrous biopolymer, chitosan has proven an effective ally in weight management.

Obesity is a well-established risk factor for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia, hypertension, osteoarthritis, and strokes. Considering current scientific knowledge and population needs, it appears tactical to provide weight management solutions to tackle the obesity epidemic while promoting calorie restriction to enhance overall wellness. 

Chitosan benefits

Chitosan is a versatile and biocompatible biopolymer that has found a variety of applications in all areas of the food sciences. Chitosan has many intrinsic nutritional values, such as antioxidant and prebiotic properties and health-promoting bioactivities against many chronic diseases. For this reason, one of its main applications has been in the nutraceutical and dietary supplement market. 

Chitosan has nutraceutical properties, including antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and antiulcer bioactivities, including its application as a dietary fibre with fat-binding qualities. It is worth nothing that supplements containing chitosan will also encourage the body to excrete the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, as well.

As a naturally fibrous biopolymer, it has proven an effective ally in weight management. Chitosan can actively absorb up to eight times its weight in oils, fats and lipids, making it an excellent option for treating obesity, cholesterol, and other related diseases and conditions, including hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, inflammation, immune diseases, etc. 

Chitosan and its derivatives have been shown to lower cholesterol by blocking the absorption of dietary fat and cholesterols. They can also facilitate weight low and body fat loss in humans, subsequently lowering systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Chitosan is also a valuable prebiotic, promoting colonic conditions. 

Chitosan properties and bioactivities: 

  • Antimicrobial 
  • Antioxidant 
  • Fat-binding  
  • Prebiotic 
  • Anti-inflammatory 
  • Anti-carcinogenic 
  • Antiulcer  

ChitoClear® chitosan

Liposan products are powered by high-quality chitosan. The active ingredient is Primex ChitoClear® chitosan . A recent study assessed the selective fat-binding capacity of ChitoClear® chitosan to different fat types. The results show that ChitoClear® chitosan selectively reduces fat absorption and has a higher affinity to binding fatty acids with higher polarity compared to other chitosans. It monitored fatty acid absorption, neutral sterol and bile acid excretion in guinea pigs, a suitable animal model due to its similarities with human lipid metabolism. This is significant, as different fat types have different metabolism in animals and humans.

Liposan Ultra 

LipoSan Ultra is a unique and proprietary dietary fiber formulation, shown to significantly reduce body weight. The main constituent is chitosan that has been modified and optimized to enhance its solubility in stomach acid and fat binding performance. Liposan Ultra has a higher density and solubility than chitosan itself. In the digestive system, LipoSan Ultra complexes and binds with dietary fat  in such a way that the fat is not absorbed by the body.

User benefits include:

  • Fast-acting – dissolves within 3-5 minutes
  • Convenient – can be taken right before any meal
  • Binds up to 5 times more fat than similar products
  • Helps maintaining normal blood LDL cholesterol level

Liposan Fibers & Vitamin C

Liposan Fibers & Vitamin C is a natural, bioactive chitosan product that improves digestion and gut health. By mixing Vitamin C with our proven Liposan Ultra, increased effectiveness of each capsule has been achieved.

LipoSan Fibers & Vitamin C contains natural marine chitosan that quickly dissolves in stomach acid and binds dietary lipids, thus reducing intestinal lipid absorption. This significantly reduces calorie digestion and promotes weight loss. Within three minutes of working in the stomach, over 90% of the Liposan Ultra is already working on neutralizing meal-derived fat. 

Proven results include:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Powerful antioxidant protection
  • Better cholesterol control
  • Effective weight management

Liposan Micro 

Lastly, Liposan Micro is a Primex patented formulation. It has all the benefits of Liposan but comes in micro-granulated dust form. Liposan Micro is ideal for people who don't like swallowing capsules and can be added directly to any meal, condiment, sauce or dish. It is micro-coated to remove any taste and comes in a convenient spice jar, ready for easy use.

Chitosan has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as a safe food additive, dietary fiber, and functional ingredient for consumer use.
