TIENS Chitosan Capsules


TIENS Chitosan is a multi-functional food supplement.  Chitosan contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels and effectively supports slimming diet due to its unique ability to bind fat particles in the digestive system.



TIENS Chitosan is classified as soluble fibre. Like other soluble natural dietary fibres it is important for the functioning of the digestive tract.

Chitosan together with cellulose are the most abundant polysaccharides (complex carbohydrate) on earth. It is made from chitin found in the shells of crustaceans, insects and in the cellular walls of some fungal species. As a natural compound, it is non-toxic and biodegradable, completely safe for the environment. This is why it is becoming widely applied not only in foods supplements, but also in human and veterinary medicine, cosmetology or biotechnology in the broad sense. 


TIENS Chitosan is produced from the shells of red leg crabs. It is characterised by a very high – 85% degree of chitin deacetylation. The higher the deacetylation degree of this organic compound, the stronger the biochemical activity of the obtained chitosan. Hence, the formula is remarkably effective.

Chitosan present in the preparation is not digested nor absorbed by the human body. After entering the stomach, it significantly increases its volume in the presence of water, and effectively stops hunger. Additionally, chitin fibers wrap themselves around fat molecules, which renders them undigestible for the digestive enzymes. One chitosan molecule binds few times more fat compared to its own weight, and the bound fat is later excreted from the body. At the same time, the substance does not limit the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E, which has been confirmed by scientific research.
