High potency Chitosan capsules, a natural aid in weight control.
Thompson’s Fat Blocker is a natural product that can help to reduce fat absorption in the body. Fat Blocker contains extra strength 500mg Chitosan (pronounced kite-o-san). Chitosan is an aminopolysaccharide derived from ‘chitin’ found in plankton and the exoskeleton (shells) of crustaceans such as shrimp, lobster and crab. Chitosan is processed to create a fibre with a magnetic binding affinity for fat, triglycerides and cholesterol in the digestive tract. This binding occurs when positively charged Chitosan binds with negatively charged fat and bile acids. The binding of these fat and cholesterol molecules to Chitosan prevents them from being absorbed into the bloodstream, allowing them to be eliminated via the bowel.Numerous studies show that Chitosan has many health benefits:
- Absorbs and binds up fat, carrying it through the intestinal tract and out of the body
- Lower blood fat
- Reduces Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) levels while increasing High Density Lipoprotein (HDL)
Fat Blocker also contains Vitamin C, acknowledged as the most important nutrient for increasing the effectiveness of Chitosan. Chitosan is a safe natural substance, biodegradable and environmentally biocompatible.
Used as part of a weight control program, Thompson’s Fat Blocker can help reduce weight by blocking the absorption of dietary fat.
