Remarkable Feature of  Chitosan Oligosaccharide

Chitosan Oligosaccharide
is a non-toxic functional amino sugar of low molecular weight. 
Chitosan Oligosaccharide is a mixture of oligomers of D-glucosamine. The degree of polymerization of the oligomer is about  20.3. Its molecular weight is average 3,880.

Chitosan Oligosaccharide is  obtained by an enzymatic  hydrolysis of chitosan using chitosanase.

While chitosan works only from the stomach and intestines as it is not absorbed into the system, Chitosan Oligosaccharide can reach the colon where it is  broken down by the enzymes and delivered throughout the body to cleanse cells of waste.

Chitosan Oligosaccharide has the following benefits;
-Binds excess fat and inhibits fat absorption
-Lowers LDL/boosts HDL cholesterol
-Anti-cancer,  Anti-bacterial
-Supports immunity 
-Lowers blood sugar
-Controls blood pressure
-Prevents constipation
