Chitosan, the active ingredient in Epakitin, is a natural polysaccharide derived from shells of shrimp and crab.
Chitosan naturally binds phosphorus. Binding the phosphorus, in turn, limits the absorption of phosphorus from the intestines.
And, that limitation helps pets with chronic kidney disease by slowing down the damage caused by the disease.
In addition, decreasing serum phosphorus levels and has been shown to reduce urea and creatinine levels.
