In order to certify the fat binding ability of all kinds of Poly-D-Glucosamine and chitosan in general and our Solusitan® Enriched Poly-D-Glucosamine blend specifically, Lineatabs® requested an independent laboratory to test some of the various existing kinds of Poly-D-Glucosamine and high quality chitosan ingredients. We want to emphasize that we have compared our Solusitan® blend to the best and most popular chitosans and similar ingredient products in market at this present time (Absorbitol Plus®, high quality pure chitosan and others).
The purpose of this study was to determine the fat-binding capacity of our Solusitan® Enriched Poly-D-Glucosamine blend in comparison to Absorbitol Plus®, a high quality pure chitosan and other basic chitosan products that are found in many dietary supplements that are designed for fat and triglycerides reduction.
The study methodology has been developed by the Seafood Laboratory of Oregon University (USA) and modified by Dr. Meler. (Department of Applied Pharmacy, University of Medicine, 50 139 Wroclaw, Poland). Poly-D-Glucosamine eminence Dr. Krotkiewski was also involved in study supervision and direction. The method is using the subtraction of the amount of fat bound to chitosan (and/or present in the loose form in the chitosan emulsion and fiber net) from the initial amount of oil added to the system.
The results of the fat-binding ability of all studied enriched Poly-D-Glucosamine and chitosan-based ingredients can be compared in the graphic below. It is clearly seen that Solusitan® provided the best fat binding capacity absorbing 31.22 g of oil per each gram of Enriched Poly-D-Glucosamine —without interfering in the absorption of the essential minerals and vitamins that the body needs. None of the other studied Poly-D-Glucosamin blends or chitosan-based products offered such spectacular results.
