in Combination with Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C) Promotes Further
Fat uptake in the body in presence of chitosan
oligosaccharide may be even more decreased by adding to the latter
ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
Chitosan oligosaccharide, creating a salt bond with ascorbic acid,
forms chitosan oligosaccharide ascorbate and thus stabilizes quite
an unstable vitamin C, i.e. it acts as a carrier for ascorbic
acid. Under the influence of the stomach hydrochloric acid there
occurs proteinization of chitosan oligosaccharide and release
of ascorbic acid.
Some of researchers suggest that decrease of fat absorption in
presence of chitosan oligosaccharide ascorbate can be explained
by synergetic action of ascorbic acid and chitosan oligosaccharide.
Chitosan oligosaccharide ascorbate is capable of controlling cholesterol
synthesis by metabolism activation. Moreover, chitosan oligosaccharide
ascorbate application enhances immunological functions of the
Chitosan oligosaccharide ascorbate may be used alone as well as
in composition with other biologically active substances for preparing
various BAS (for more information concerning
Chitosan and weight loss please see page 7).
Saw Palmetto in the Prevention Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
The incidence of prostate gland disorders increases each year
in men after the age of 40. Problems associated with prostate
disorders can range from uncomfortable inflammation and increased
urinary frequency to cancer and death.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men and
is the second leading cause of cancer deaths after lung cancer.
The American Cancer Society predicts that this year 209,900 cases
of prostate cancer will be newly diagnosed, and that approximately
41,800 men will die from this disease.
Several natural products are effective in preventing and/or treating
these conditions. These include: extracts of the herbs saw palmetto,
Pygeum africanum and stinging nettles root; the minerals zinc
and selenium; and a diet high in vegetables containing lycopene.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) denotes an enlargement of the
prostate gland. This non-cancerous condition occurs in half of
men between the ages of 40 and 59, and in 80 percent of men over
age 70. The first sign of clinical BPH is usually the need to
urinate frequently during the night. As the condition progresses,
many men also develop a slight pain or burning sensation during
urination as well as difficulty starting the flow of urine. There
is also a noticeable decrease in the force of the urine stream.
As the gland enlarges further, it begins to squeeze or pinch off
the urethra, obstructing urination (for more information
