ChitosanWhat Makes Chitosan 500 mg Different?

Chitosan is a fiber composed of chitin, which is a component of the shell of shellfish. Scientists in Norway have processed chitin to provide a magnetic binding affinity for fat and cholesterol in the digestive tract. Clinical studies have shown that in five weeks, Chitosan reduced cholesterol by 32 percent, lowered triglycerides by 18 percent, and increased HDL by 7.5 percent. Chitosan is also an excellent aid in weight loss because it binds fat and interferes with the body's absorption of fat calories.

Facts About Chitosan and Weight Loss

Chitosan is a fiber product derived from the exoskeleton (or chitin) of shrimp, lobsters, and crabs. Chitosan was developed by scientists in Norway as an aid in weight loss. It is a naturally occurring fat inhibitor that entraps fat in the intestine and binds as much as 4 to 6 times its weight in ingested fat. Once this fat is bound, it is unusable by the body. It is important to remember that even a modest weight loss can reduce a person's risk of heart disease and cancer.

Scientists have also processed chitin so that it has a high binding (absorption) affinity for cholesterol in the digestive tract. Since cholesterol is normally secreted with the bile and reabsorbed in the intestine, fibers like chitosan can help remove cholesterol from inside of the body. The absorbed fat and cholesterol are excreted through the bowel, improving bowel function.

Studies show that ascorbic acid (vitamin C) helps activate chitosan in the stomach and intestine into a fat-absorbing gel. When ascorbic acid was given with chitosan to rats, far more fat was trapped and excreted in the feces than when chitosan was given without ascorbic acid to enhance the fat-absorbing effects of chitosan. Buffered or mineral ascorbates will not work as well.
