What is the recommended usage of Lineatabs®?

Lineatabs® is most recommended when:

  • You want to stop gaining weight
  • You know that eating fatty foods is bad for your body and causes weight gain
  • You still want to be able to enjoy eating fatty foods every now and again, without feeling guilty about it
  • You have little time or energy to prepare healthy meals

Here's how it works:

  1. Use Lineatabs® before or during the meal or snack.
  2. Drop an effervescent tablet in a glass of cold water.
  3. Wait until the effervescent tablet is completely dissolved.
  4. Drink the whole glass of the refreshing lime-flavored solution.
  5. The active ingredient, Solusitan®, attracts the fat in your food and blocks it from being absorbed into your body.

Additional Recommendations:

  • We advise you to enjoy at least one meal per day without using Lineatabs®. This is because your body also requires healthy fats in order to function well.
  • Lineatabs contains traces of shellfish. We recommend that people with an allergy to shellfish do not to use Lineatabs®.
  • The key effective ingredient Solusitan® attracts and binds fat, but does not absorb any vitamins or minerals.
  • Lineatabs® have a refreshing lime flavor that goes great with any meal or snack.
  • We recommend using Lineatabs® when eating fatty meals and snacks, such as: fries, kebab, hamburgers, pork, cheese, sausages, sauces and dips, whipped cream, chips, ice cream, almond bread, etc.
Refreshingly simple. Just drop a Lineatab effervescent tablet in cold water and drink a refreshing lemon-lime beverage with every fatty meal.

Do Lineatabs® work for weight loss?

Lineatabs® was developed as a "healthy lifestyle" weight management product. Its primary purpose is to absorb dietary fat from your food as you eat it. This means that those who have already acheived an ideal weight are more likely to maintain it with the help of Lineatabs® to remove more of dietary fat from the food they eat.

Weight loss is a pretty simple concept. If you burn more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. The body uses fat to create energy. If you remove dietary fat before it can be metabolised in your body, then the body will seek its energy source from stored fat. Lineatabs® is not a "miracle weight loss" product, but can help contribute to healthy weight loss by helping to "lighten the load" on your body's natural metabolic processes.

Simply put, a healthy diet and an active lifestyle (i.e. frequent exercise) is the best route to healthy weight loss. That is always what your doctor will tell you, because it is the truth. Adding Lineatabs® to your regular diet will certainly help your body burn the fat it needs to lose weight by way of not introducing as much "new fat" from the food you eat. However, Lineatabs® alone will not contribute to substantial weight loss in the abscence of a healthy diet and an active lifestyle.

Leniatabs® for simple, safe, and effective weight loss and maintenance.

Does Lineatabs® have side effects similar to other fat absorber products?

We are quite pleased to say that Lineatabs® does NOT have the "unpleasant" bowel related changes (GI-related effects) that accompany some (and one of the most famous brands, inparticular) fat absorber products on the market when used as recommended.

Lineatabs® is not recommended for children, due to their special dietary needs. Lineatabs® is never recommended for anyone with shellfish allergies, as Solusitan® Poly-D-Glucosamine Complex does contain materials harvested from crustacean cartilage that may cause an allergic reaction. Talk with your doctor before using Lineatabs® if you have a medical condition, or are taking any medications.

Beyond these indications, Lineatabs® is deemed quite safe and highly natural*. Lineatabs® contains no drugs, stimulants, or artificial flavors or sweeteners.

Lineatabs does not have

Are Lineatabs® right for me?

Lineatabs® are most recommended when eating fatty snacks or meals. If you enjoy "junk food" occassionally (and most of us do), Lineatabs® can help remove fat from your diet as you eat it. There are no indications that Lineatabs® will burn away fat that has already been metabolised and stored in your body, aside from the simple fact that your body will always seek fat to burn to create energy. The less fat that is available, the better for weight loss-motivated individuals.

Lineatabs® is NOT a replacement for a healthy diet and regular excerise. It is a dietary supplement. You add it to your healthy lifestyle.

In general, Lineatabs® are MOST recommended if:

  • You want to stop gaining weight
  • You do enjoy "junk food" occasionally
  • You have little time or energy to regularly prepare healthy meals and excercise

In particular, Lineatabs® are NOT recommended if:

  • You are a child
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You are allergic to shellfish
  • You are on a sodium-restricted diet

Your doctor knows best. Always to your doctor before adding any dietary supplement to your diet, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking medications.


When should I use Lineatabs®?

We advise you to use Lineatabs® effervescent tablets when you eat fatty snacks or meals.

Examples of fatty foods with an unhealthily high fat content:

  • Fries
  • Kebab
  • Hamburgers and Cheeseburgers
  • Pork
  • Cheese
  • Sausages
  • Sauces and dips
  • Whipped cream
  • Chips
  • Ice cream
  • Almond bread
  • Meat pastries, etc.

With which meals should I avoid using Lineatabs®?

We advise you to enjoy at least one meal per day without using Lineatabs®. The body also needs healthy fats in order to function well. Examples of healthy fats include olive oil, nut oils and fatty fish.


Can I use Lineatabs® with every meal?

It is possible, but it is preferable to enjoy at least one meal per day without using Lineatabs®. Our bodies need healthy fats in order to function properly.


Will Lineatabs® interact with my prescription medications?

We always recommend that you talk to your doctor before adding Lineatabs® (or any dietary supplement) to your diet if you are currently taking any prescription medications.

Are Lineatabs® approved by the FDA?

Not exactly. Lineatabs® is a dietary supplement. If you weren't aware, dietary supplement manufacturers and distributors are not required to obtain approval from FDA before marketing dietary supplements. Before a firm markets a dietary supplement, the firm is responsible for ensuring that:

  • the products it manufactures or distributes are safe
  • any claims made about the products are not false or misleading
  • the products comply with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and FDA regulations in all other respects

We're working hard to ensure that we're doing all of these things right, and more. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns regarding our products.


Does Lineatabs® contain stimulants?

Nope. Nothing like that in here. Just Solusitan® Poly-D-Glucosamine Complex, a good dose of Vitamin C (100% daily recommended value - for adult women, that is), some natural ingredients to make it taste good, and the ingredients needed to make a quality "fizzy" effervescent tablet. Here, read the label...

Just to real clear...Lineatabs® is NOT presented as a fat-burning product, because it's not. It is not designed to remove stored fat directly by way of boosting the metabolism like a typical thermogenic-type of dietary supplement (many of which your doctor might try to talk you out of taking). Rather it works, sort of like a magnet, to remove dietary fat before it gets digested and metabolized (and ultimately stored in places like the stomach, hips, and thighs).

With that said, Lineatabs® may help you get rid of extra fat in the sense that it is easier to burn the fat you already have with regular exercise, if you are not adding more too it all the time.

Lineatabs DOES NOT contain stimulants.

Enjoy the food, without the guilt. Really?

Yes, really. We understand that it's easy to be skeptical when you see a product making such a statement.

We're not trying to say you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want and you will be just fine if you use Lineatabs®. That simply is not true. Lineatabs® is not a replacement for a healthy diet and regular exercise. Rather, it something you add to your healthy lifestyle to help simplify your weight management program. It's refreshingly simple. Right?

We actually chose our primary "tagline" from among several options (including "Lighten your meal. Diet while you eat." and "Enjoy the food, not the fat.") after lots of feedback from lots of folks in our most-likely customer base. (Our marketing guys call them "focus groups", but we call them "folks like us") We simply explained the product to these most-likely customers and had them try it, then asked for their feedback on our marketing message. The overwhelming majority felt that the "guilt" aspect was spot-on.

The truth is...if you have worked hard enough to reach your goal weight, you tend to stay pretty darn motivated to maintain that. However, food guilt is a real "thing". It really is OK to treat yourself, ocassionally, to something you might normally avoid as a reward for all your hard work. Lineatabs® helps. That's what we mean by "Enjoy the food, without the guilt."


How is Solusitan® different than chitosan?

That is a fine question! There is a difference between Solusitan® and chitosan.

Solusitan® is our proprietary blend. We describe it in the more (and correct) scientific term of "Poly-D-Glucosamine Complex". We do use chitosan in our blend, however the name "Chitosan" has been misused many times in the past in dietary supplement products that do not deliver on their claims. If you enjoy wine (like we do), you probably know there is a HUGE difference between “Box Wine” and ’79 Chateau Margaux, yet both are considered wine!

Chitosan comes in many different qualities. These qualities are called “Grade Standards” and every grade has different characteristics, for example here are a few different grade standards:

  • Food Grade
  • Medical grade
  • Tech grade
  • Industrial grade
  • Pharmaceutical grade
  • Cosmetic grade

We only use the highest grade, which is Medical grade. Would-be competitors would love for us to describe in great detail how we evaluate the ingredients, but we're going to not do that here. We can tell you that normal food grade chitosan has been proven to have no FBC (fat binding capacity). There are many important factors to developing a good fat-binding chitosan, for example, many of the manufacturers bleach their material because it looks nicer, however decoloration decreases the fat binding. There is powder and there are flakes. Flakes do not work for fat binding.

Several collegues in the dietary supplement industry simply bought the cheapest chitosan (food grade or even worse), put it in a tablet or capsule and sold it in the past as a fat absorber. They ruined the market for an ingredient that actually has some fairly impressive scientific support.

Little known is that water, in combination with other key ingredients, is very important for this product to work properly (it intensifies the ionic charge) for fat binding once in the digestive system, chitosan dissolves and forms a positively charged ionic gel. Negatively charged molecules of fats, lipids, bile and acid-forming ions like chloride attach strongly to the chitosan. This is why we developed the product as an effervescent tablet. You want people to drink plenty of water when they take chitosan.


Are there any medical studies that support the claims you make about Lineatabs®?

That's a great question! The answer is yes. You can click here to download our Structure/Function Substantiation document.

Just keeping it real...these studies support the claims we can make about the key ingredient (Deacetylchitin; Poly-(D)-Glucosamine) in our product and is what is required by the Food & Drug Administration for us to make available to anyone who asks for it. We're working on some cool science and documenting much about Lineatabs® and the ingredients we use in the product. We will be happy (and actually kind of proud) to publish very specific science once our USA patent application process is complete. Please stay tuned.

In the meantime, we have an outstanding Nutritional Scientist and trusted consultant who helps us with all things scientific. We call her "Doc Rock", but her real name is Susie Rockway, Ph.D., C.N.S.. If you have specific questions for us or Dr. Rockway, please do send them to us and we will be in touch with specific answers ASAP.

Also, if empirical data interests you, you might like to know that we are new in the USA, but have delivered upwards to 10,000,000 units in several countries over the past 11 years. Our product is patented in Europe (Patent No. WO/2004/019702), and is currently patent pending in the USA. We have an honest return policy and currently have a 0.001% return rate. That's all good news to us!
