Scientific Background

Polyglucosamine, also named chitosan, is a polyaminosaccharide derived from chitin, a component of the exoskeleton of crustaceans.

Due to the presence of multiple amino groups, polyglucosamine, when dissolved in aqueous acidic media, shows a high positive charge on its surface that allows it to adhere to or to aggregate with negatively charged molecules; this can be exploited in a variety of processes.

In the acidic environment of the stomach (pH ≈ 2) polyglucosamine swells and forms a positively charged gel. The gel attracts negatively charged molecules such as lipids, fatty acids and their oxidized forms. Once in the small intestine (pH ≈ 7-8) these complexes solidify and are subsequently excreted in the feces, as aggregates.

Clinical Studies

Lipiban formula is clinically tested Physiologic regulating medicine, 1, 25-29, 2006.

Patent

Lipiban is covered by patents in Italy (1373986), in the EU (EP1996207), in the USA (US9050356), in Japan (JP5557451) and in Mexico (MX2008011289).

The incidence of metabolic disorders has significantly increased worldwide, leading to a global epidemic of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs), obesity and diabetes. The WHO has estimated that CVDs are one of the main causes of death globally, and experimental evidences linked Oxidative Stress (OS) to CVDs, since OS promotes in a “vicious cycle”, endothelial dysfunction, leading to CVDs exacerbation. Specific, synergic and harmonic formula are required to concurrently address the main aspects of OS. To identify which pool of antioxidants have to be supplemented with the diet is a relevant aspect, since inappropriate supplementation can result in damages or inefficacy.

Properties and Indications

Lipiban is a clinically tested food supplement containing low molecular weight Polyglucosamine, and Vitamin C. Its specificity is linked to its unique composition. Polyglucosamine (Chitosan) is a natural fiber that is obtained from the shells of marine crustaceans, endowed with special features that reduce intestinal reabsorption of cholesterol and fatty acids.
