Oyster mushroom chitosan dietary fiber with specific binding properties and with bioactive B-vitamines
Bowel active – Binding – Cleaning – Relieving
PlastiCLEAN contains the world´s only dietary fiber chitosan, extracted from the chitin of oyster mushrooms – a purely natural, non-digestible fiber and so-called biopolymer.
In-vitro measurements in laboratories chitosan shows a special and universal binding capacity for undesirable substances. Thus chitosan is bi-polar, it able to adsorb both, polar (water soluble) and nonpolar (lipid-soluble) substances – multifunctional for binding, cleaning, relief and diet support.
In environmental technology, chitosan has long been used for purification: the natural substance can it can bind metals or metal compounds by adsorbtion and form complexes that are difficult to dissolve and therefore easy to filter out.
But chitosan can do even more. In agriculture and the food industry its antimicrobial and antifungal effect is put to good effect, for example, to preserve food, fruit and vegetables, in animal feed or seed treatment. Chitosan works as a natural insecticide and inhibits fungal growth biologically and without any chemical battering.
A better metabolic availability by biologically activated vitamins
In PlastiCLEAN we provide the biologically active forms methylcobalamin (B12), pyridoxal phosphate (B6) and methylfolate (B9). „Biologically active“ means that the vitamins are already present in a physiological form, as they occur in the organism and fulfill their tasks there. Activated forms therefore have a better absorption and biological availability in the metabolism.
Vegetarians and especially vegans have additional needs for biologically active forms since these are mainly contained in meat, in particular when also dairy products and eggs are despised. However, elderly people whose metabolic functions often are slowed down can suffer easily from B12 or folic acid deficiency, since it is no longer absorbed sufficiently from the diet.
