The naturally occurring substance, chitosan has the ability to significantly absorb and bind fat in the digestive tract. It is chemically similar to cellulose, a plant fibre that prevents fat absorption, and can also produce a bulking effect that increases satiety. Chitosan acts as a soluble fibre in the stomach. It binds with fats and bile acids in the small intestine to form the gel-like complex and in turn leaves the fat indigestible. The complex passes through the large intestine and eventually is naturally eliminated. Fat is not digested and the decrease in bile activity also indirectly reduces fat absorption.It has been proven in numerous researchers, that chitosan may help to manage cholesterol and maintain a healthy, normal level of blood LDL-cholesterol concentrations.
