Chitosan from crab/shirimp/squid

· ChitoSlim is made from Korean red crab shell under strict quality control system
· Chitosan has characteristics of the animal fiber which is not degraded by the digestive enzymes
· Chitosan promotes bile secretion and helps adjust blood cholesterol by decreasing fat absorption in stomach
· A variety of human clinical trials show that chitosan is effective in reducing body fat

· We can produce high molecular weight water-soluble chitosan
(When we add 5 g of the soluble chitosan in 100 g of water, it is dissolved within 10 mins)​ 



Recommended Dosage
· Regulation of blood cholesterol concentration: 1.2~4.5 g per day
· Reduction in body fat: 3.0~4.5 g per day​
