Chitosan is a polysaccharide derived from chitin, the material that comprises the exoskeletons of crustacean shellfish. It consists of randomly distributed molecules of D-glucosamine and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. Studies suggest that chitosan has benefits for blood pressure, healthy cholesterol, and weight management. Recent research indicates that a low-molecular-weight chitosan oligosaccharide, which is produced from the enzymatic digestion of chitosan, has a beneficial impact on blood glucose management. This ingredient is branded as Orisett by Nutragenesis LLC (Brattleboro, VT). The low-molecular-weight chitosan oligosaccharide is readily absorbed into the bloodstream with oral administration and thus has significant advantages over other forms of chitosan.11
