Research on Chitosan & How it Works

Over the years, research on Chitosan has shown that Chitosan is one of the many remarkable weight loss supplements that can substantially contribute to weight loss. Chitosan is the main ingredients of Fat Absorb, which makes it the best weight loss supplement. Due to its unique qualities using Chitosan for weight loss has proven to be very effective over the years.

Chitosan is similar to plant fiber (also known as cellulose) in form. It is derived from “Chitin” contained in the shells of shellfish, which is a long chain polymer; a derivative of glucose and is found in many places all over the world, but it is a main component of cell walls of fungi and exoskeletons of arthropods such as crustaceans. Chitin is a polymer that is found almost anywhere. It is present all around us in plants and animals. It is sometimes considered to be a by-product of cellulose, as the two have very similar molecular structures. Cellulose contains a hydroxy group, and Chitin contains acetamide. Overtime, there have been many reported cases of successful and safe Chitin weight reduction.

Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide, composed randomly of distributed β-(1-4)-linked D-glucosamine (deacetylated unit) and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (acetylated unit). It is produced commercially by the deacetylation of Chitin (which promotes chitin weight reduction). Chitosan (positive charge) is a large molecule that binds significantly with fat molecules (negative charge), converting them into a form that is not absorbable by the body. It prevents storage and absorption of fat in the body by converting into a jelly- like form, somewhat creating a grease ball from the excess bodily fat which becomes too large to be absorbed by the body, thus becoming an inert substance, which then gets ejected out of the body the form of excreta. This is what leads to weight loss, and has proven to solve the problem of how to loose weight fast in a very safe and easy way.

Jan Albelin (M.D.) & Allan Lassus (M.D.) conducted a study at ARS Medicina in Helsinki, Finland from August to October 1994. This is the most significant research done on Chitosan. The study involved two groups of people, Chitosan group & Placebo group. The study found that the Chitosan group had an average weight loss of 15 pounds in a 4 week period whereas the Placebo group only had an average weight loss of 5 pounds. Some of the other positive effects included:

Positive effects Fat Absorb has as a result of Chitosan weight loss are:

  • It inhibits LDL cholesterol(bad) and helps boost HDL cholesterol(good)
  • It helps to control blood pressure
  • Reduces blood levels of uric acids
  • Enhances calcium and hence strengthens bones, inhibits plaque and tooth decay
  • Helps prevent constipation
  • Acts as an antacid
  • Prevents irritable bowel syndrome
  • Offers anti-tumor action
  • It promotes the healing of lesions and ulcers
