Chitosan is a natural ballast substance composed of chitin fibres isolated from crustacean shells (krill, crabs, shrimps and/or lobsters) and treated as dietary fibre intended for consumption as a weight reduction supporting product for adults, except for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Chitosan intake is especially recommended for persons who are on an improper diet with high fat content.
Chitosan is a chitin derivative which displays in the body the properties of dietary fibre. It dissolves in the acid environment of the stomach, owing to which a gel forms constituting a "trap" for fat molecules. Therefore it is important for chitosan ingestion to be associated with drinking large amounts of liquid - at best water. Such action results in reduced absorption of lipid molecules in the intestines and in elevated excretion of insoluble products of binding of fat fractions with chitosan in faeces.
Chromium is a trace mineral that is significantly reduced in the American diet due to the overprocessing of our foods. One capsule provides 170% of the daily value for the essential element.
Chromium is needed for proper carbohydrate metabolism and to help keep blood sugar levels optimal: the effects of chromium deficiency may include low blood sugar or insulin resistance. Inadequate chromium intake is a possible contributing factor to insulin resistance (diabetes), obesity and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
Chromium, in a form called chromium picolinate, has been studied for its potential role in altering body composition. Preliminary research in animals and humans suggested that chromium picolinate increases fat loss and promotes a gain in lean muscle tissue. Double-blind research has also reported a reduction in body fat and body weight in people given 400 mcg of chromium (as chromium picolinate) per day for three months.
