Chitosan is a natural product that inhibits fat absorption. It has the potential to revolutionize the process of losing weight and by so doing, reduce the incidence of some of the most devastating Western diseases we face today. Chitosan is indigestible and non-absorbable. Fats bound to Chitosan become non-absorbable, thereby negating their caloric value. Chitosan-bound fat leaves the intestinal tract having never entered the bloodstream. Chitosan is remarkable in that it has the ability to absorb an average of 4 to 5 times its weight in fat.
The same features that allow Chitosan to bind fats endow it with many other valuable properties that work to promote health and prevent disease. Chitosan is a remarkable substance whose time has come.
Chitin, the precursor to Chitosan, was first discovered in early 1811. Chitin is the most abundant natural fiber next to cellulose, and is similar to cellulose in many aspects. The most abundant source of Chitin is in the shells of shellfish, such as crab and shrimp. Chitosan is made by cooking Chitin in alkali, much like the process for making natural soaps. After it is cooked, the links of the Chitosan chain are made up of glucosamine units. Each glucosamine unit contains a free amino group. These groups take on a positive charge, which gives the Chitosan it amazing properties.

Many people believe weight-loss programs should begin with enzyme therapy. Enzymes break down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, along with other helpful functions. Enzymes take those nutrients that are inside food and put them to use in our systems.
One of the most common causes of obesity is the craving of foods and the over-eating which results from that over-eating. When we consume food, we use those foods (healthy or not) to provide nutrients for our ever-working bodies. Without proper enzymatic function, the foods containing those essential nutrients don't get broken down properly. The result is our body telling us to eat more, or in other words, it needs nutrients. With the use of enzymes we can greatly control those cravings and help get those nutrients our bodies need.
