Chitosan is a unique fat-absorbing dietary fiber that inhibits the absorption of dietary fat during digestion. Chitosan is derived from the chitin of shellfish. Chitin is a polysaccharide found in the exoskeletons of shellfish and crustaceans. It is a unique dietary fiber that is indigestible, so it does not contribute to the amount of ingested carbohydrates. This brand of Chitosan dissolves rapidly in stomach acid and almost immediately begins binding to ingested dietary fat, greatly reducing the amount that is absorbed during digestion.
You have to make sure you eat properly to achieve maximum effect for this product, but it helps you not gain weight when you go out for dinner or want to have the occasional splurge. If you use this in conjunction with a healthy diet, you WILL lose weight! I bought this as well as the Starch Blocker and I never really have to worry about what I'm eating making me gain. It's not going to make you just shed pounds, but it will definitely aid in regulating your fat intake and preventing you from absorbing excessive amounts.
