Do Chitosan Supplements Cause Weight Loss?
Chitosan is a dietary supplement composed of chitin, a component of shellfish. It is designed to absorb fat and cholesterol in the gut. The absorbed fat and cholesterol are excreted through the bowel.
|Does Chitosan Cause Weight Loss
Some studies say Yes - chitosan does lead to extra loss of weight, other studies say No. Here is a positive sample.
Weight Reduction Trial Using Chitosan
In a six-month randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study, with 2 groups of dieters on a 1000 calorie diet - one group receiving chitosan supplements, the other receiving a placebo - significantly higher body weight loss was noted in the chitosan group (15.9 kg) than in the placebo group (10.9 kg). Also a greater decrease of systolic and diastolic blood pressure was observed in the chitosan group. There was no difference between the groups in the decrease of LDL and total cholesterol. No adverse effects were noted but the number of drop-outs was higher in the placebo group than in the chitosan group.
Calorie Controlled Diet and Exercise Needed
Most studies show that whether you take chitosan or other weight loss supplements, optimum results are achieveable only if patients follow a calorie-restricted eating plan and take regular exercise.
