Natural lipid inhibitor
Each capsule contains
Chitosan powder …………………. 250 mg
Chitosan displays cationic properties which enable it to bind fatty acids via electrostatic forces. Positively charged chitosan binds to negatively charged fat, bile acids and cholesterol in the intestine and prevents fat absorption. The complexes form between chitosan and fats are excreted in the faeces without digestion. Consumption of chitosan has a beneficial effect by reducing body weight, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and glucose and increasing cholesterol excretion.
In addition to this, modulation of adipokines by chitosan may be one of the mechanisms for weight loss. Adipokines include leptin, tumor necrosis factor alpha, interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein (CRP). It decreases dietary intake which is associated with increased serum leptin concentrations and decreased CRP concentrations. Leptin is known to have a role in appetite suppression.
