Benefits of Chitosan
1, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fat, lowering blood sugar
Chitosan is a highly effective lipid adsorbent, which can control the digestion and absorption of lipids, promote the conversion of cholesterol, and lower the fat and lower cholesterol.
2. Repair the gastric mucosa, prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases
Chitosan is an ideal antacid, which can neutralize excessive gastric acid and form a protective film on the gastric mucosa to reduce the irritation and corrosion of the gastric damage surface, thereby promoting the repair of the damaged surface and preventing gastritis.
Application of Finished dosage form of Chitosan
Weight control benefit is popular application of Chitosan. Chitosan is a type of dietary fibers which shows in none-clinical study to bind the fat in the digestive process, which helps to control the weight of human body.
1. The popular finished dosage of Chitosan intended for weight loss is capsules form. Usually one capsule contains 500 mg chitosan, and usually one bottle contains 240 capsules
2. Another popular finished dosage form of chitosan is tablet. Usually one tablet contains 500-750 mg chitosan.
Other knowledge of Chitosan
Chitosan is a liner polysaccharide produced by extraction from shells of crab. It is off powder with a low bulk density. However, in order to make chitosan better for application in food supplements, we improve the bulk density to be around 0.6g/ml.
Chitosan is insoluble in water or alkali solution. But it is soluble in inorganic acid like diluted hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, and most organic acid.
The purity of chitosan is calculated on the deacetylation degree. The deacetylation degree is from 70% to 95% depending on the different application of chitosan.
Chitosan is widely used in many industries such as the Food, Food supplements, Medicine, Cosmetic, Sewage treatment, textile, leather and etc.
In this page, we mainly talk about the application of chitosan in Food Supplements industry for weight loss purpose.
