Natural Balance, Chitosan, 1,000 mg, 120 Capsules55 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Studies suggest that a diet rich in fiber can help reduce the transit time of foods in the digestive system, so less dietary fat and cholesterol are available to the system. Chitosan is not digestible and therefore has no caloric value. Taken before meals, this fast-acting Chitosan is a helpful addition to your weight management program.

Natural Balance Diet Plan
Try incorporating these simple, proven methods into your lifestyle for healthy weight loss and maintenance. This dietary supplement, when used in conjunction with the Natural Balance Diet Plan, is intended to support a healthy weight maintenance program.
1. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables with every meal and snack.
This helps ensure healthier sources of long lasting daily energy, fiber and nutrients with less fat and sugar. Eating fruits and vegetables as snacks also helps decrease hunger cravings!
2. Choose unprocessed and fresh, whole foods as often as possible.
Some examples are: brown rice instead of pasta, oatmeal instead of toast, fresh whole fruit with skin instead of canned. Reduce starchy foods to whatever extent possible. This approach helps to maximize the consumption of healthy fibers and foods that typically have a low glycemic index, resulting in improved appetite control.
3. Move every chance you get!
A regular exercise program is the best option to reach desired goals. For example, a brisk, daily walking routine of 30-45 minutes will utilize calories and stimulate fat metabolism and fat loss.
4. Practice moderation.
Watch meal portions. Whenever possible, additional servings at meals should include only fruits and vegetables. Avoid eating late at night.
5. Avoid constantly checking the bathroom scale!
Since the scale measures only total body weight, it cannot measure body changes or fat to lean muscle ratio. The mirror and how your clothes fit are the best indicators of firmer, leaner muscles!
6. Practice reality!
There is no magic pill or food for successful long-term weight loss. Consistent healthy choices over time enhanced with Natural Balance dietary supplements will help you meet your goals!
Use only as directed. Take four capsules before lunch and four capsules before dinner. As with any form of fiber, drink at least eight glasses of water per day.
Cellulose, gelatin capsule, magnesium stearate.
Do not use if safety seal is broken or missing. Keep out of reach of children. Keep you licensed health care practitioner informed when using this product. Store in a cool, dry place.

iHerb Customer Reviews
When you compare chitosan products, don't just look at the price and the number of capsules. Look at how much chitosan is in each capsule. You will be amazed at the differences you find.
I should mention this product contains pure chitosan. I tried another brand before, also from iherb, but it contains chromium! I couldn't see any results from that brand, but this one works great. Thanks iherb for carrying it!
