Weight Management

Healthy Weight Management for Complete Whole Health

About one-third of adults in the United States are dealing with weight management challenges.1 This is far more than a cosmetic issue, considering all the long-term health implications that go hand in hand with maintaining a healthy weight. The reading on the scale is closely tied to level of cardiovascular health, overall mood and energy level, quality of life, joint health, and even immune system response.

More and more consumers are looking for trustworthy natural products to help support their weight management goals. Unfortunately, many products in recent years have boasted fast benefits without having any scientific support, or worse, have contained unhealthy levels of stimulant chemicals. Consumers are understandably cautious.

New Weight Management Supplement: An Effective Natural Tool with Clinical Support

Dietary fibers have long been touted for their ability to “flush” dietary fats from the digestive tract. There is some truth in that assertion, but consuming enough plant-derived fiber to cause rapid elimination of fats can also cause elimination of needed nutrients as well.

In the past two decades, chitosan, a unique dietary fiber typically derived from shellfish, has been the subject of research for its lipid-binding tendencies. Although the research is not conclusive, one explanation of the mechanism involved is that chitosan naturally emulsifies or binds with dietary fat globules as they are released from ingested food in the stomach and digestive tract. As emulsified fat passes from the stomach to the small intestine, it naturally creates an insoluble matrix around the lipids. This makes it difficult for the enzyme lipase to reach the fat and reduce it to free fatty acids, which would then normally be absorbed into the bloodstream. Instead the fats are passed through the digestive system as waste.2 Instead of relying on stimulating herbs to heat up the metabolism, chitosan binds up lipids so the body doesn’t have to deal with them.*

While lipid-binding supplements are not a license to over-eat, they can be very helpful when combined with a comprehensive lifestyle program including healthy diet and exercise. All individuals should speak with a physician before incorporating weight management supplements into a whole health regimen.*

Recommended Ingredient

LIpoSan Ultra®, manufactured by Primex, is a unique stimulant-free fiber derived from sustainably-harvested cold water shrimp. An Icelandic marine biotech company and global leader in chitosan-based ingredients, Primex has a patented manufacturing process for altering the physical properties of chitosan to make it rapidly soluble in stomach acid.  The chitosan fiber in LipoSan is almost immediately effective at binding with lipids when taken at mealtime.*

1 – According to 2010 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

2 – Note: Currently the FTC does not permit the advertising claim that chitosan blocks the uptake of dietary fat from the small intestine into the blood stream.
