- Chitosan - some call it fat magnet - is one of the most widely used and the most effective body fat controlling products next to HCA. Chitosan is a glycoprotein fiber extracted from crab and crayfish shells.
- Chitosan goes through a deactivation process during which acetyl groups are chemically removed to increase the activity of chitosan by making it more soluble.
- Chitosan is a phenomenal fat-binding fiber capable of binding lipids in the stomach before they would enter the bloodstream via the digestive system. To put it more simply, it draws excess fatty acids like a magnet, prevents their absorption and later helps the body excrete them.
