Chitosan de Sotya is a fiber that originates from the shell of some marine crustaceans such as crabs and prawns
Properties and benefits of Chitosan
Thanks to its structure and the "amino" group that forms it, in an acidic environment like that of the stomach, it is able to absorb ingested fat. The fat it captures also becomes non-absorbable, so its caloric value is zero, the fats being eliminated along with the fiber.
Chitosan is capable of absorbing 4 or 5 times its own weight in fat, an action that is enhanced with the incorporation of Vitamin C. Indirectly, the level of "bad" cholesterol is significantly reduced, as fat absorption is less, and HDL rises.
The chromium contained in its formula contributes to maintaining normal blood glucose levels and contributes to the universal metabolism of macronutrients.
How to take Chitosan?
It is advisable to take 2-3 capsules with plenty of fluids before meals.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Keep out of the reach of little kids. Avoid consumption together with medicines and other fiber-based food supplements. An excessive consumption of chitosan and fructooligosaccharides can cause intestinal discomfort
