Category - Chitosan

Chitosan is a popular dietary supplement marketed to decrease body weight via limiting fat absorption in the body and is known as a fat binder. High quality trials indicate minimal effect of chitosan on body weight and is unlikely to be of clinical significance. Richard B. Kreider and co-workers have categorised chitosan as apparently not effective. One study showed that it would take more than 7 months for a male to lose 1 pound.
