Chitosan There are 8 products.
Chitosan is an ingredient extracted from the shells of crustaceans, such as crabs and lobsters that has multiple uses. The most notable, specially in the sports world supplementation is its ability to adhere to the fat , so it is not digested by your body. This way the fats we eat, go through our digestive tract without being digested, and expelled naturally. This way reduce fat intake in our diet, and consequently diminish our percentage of body fat.
The effect of absorbing and adheration to fats works thanks to its rich composition of fiber which is achieved in contact with dietary fat, it becomes a gelatinous substance that is not digested by the stomach.
As consideration should be noted that the chitosan does not distinguish between good fats and "bad" fats; and blocks any fat source. For this reason it is not recommended the intake with any other supplement based on fatty acids such as fish oil, omega-3, 3-6-9, etc
