Prozis Foods Chitosan + Vitamin C 580 mg – A natural supplement that can help you maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels.
What exactly is chitosan?
Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide that comes from a natural substance called chitin, found in the exoskeletons of crustaceans such as shrimps, crabs and lobsters.
The extraction process is relatively simple and completely natural. First, the shells from the shellfish are removed. Next, the shells are ground into a fine powder that is subsequently deacetylated, which means the acetyl group is removed from the organic compound.
By removing this chemical group, the compound is left with a structure that links itself to fat, forming a material which the body is unable to process.
Why some call it a “fat magnet”.
While most fibres carry a negative ionic charge, chitosan's ionic charge is positive. Lipids, which is to say fat, generally carry negative charges, thus attracting positively charged elements such as chitosan. This is essentially how chitosan's magnetic effect works.
What role does Vitamin C play in the formula?
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fulfills numerous crucial functions in the body. It contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin, and teeth. Additionally, vitamin C contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism, supports normal functioning of the nervous system, promotes the normal function of the immune system, contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, and helps reduce tiredness and fatigue.
