How does KiOnutrime-CsG® work?


In acidic stomach conditions, KiOnutrime-CsG® is protonated and able to bind to negatively charged molecules (fats, fatty acids and bile salts) through electrostatic interaction. Once at the duodenal pH, chitosan precipitation allows the excretion of the chitosan-lipid complex therefore reducing lipid absorption.
