Chitosan: natural ingredient of Kalospeed

Chitosan is a natural product content in the shells of marine crustaceans. Chemically it is a bipolymer type polysaccharide obtained by alkaline deacetylation of chitin natural.
Chitosan is a powder which, in contact with the gastric juices, solubilizes forming amine groups with positive electrostatic charge capable of binding the negative carboxyl groups of free fatty acids and bile acids, reducing, thus, the absorption enteric increasing the lipid secretion with feces. This property is expressed only with fat, preventing absorption.

Clinical experiences have shown that chitosan reduces the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood by promoting the increase of the HDL fraction of cholesterol and, consequently, a decrease in blood pressure in hypertensive subjects. Clinical studies have confirmed the ability of chitosan which, by binding with the fat, and then blocking the absorption, to significantly reduce the body weight from 4 to 7 kg after 4 weeks of therapy, without, however, show any side effect. The chitosan, in fact, is deleted in its entirety as non-digestible.


During the intake of chitosan (as for all fibers) drink during the day. In people particularly sensitive to dietary changes may occur, constipation or diarrhea. May limit the absorption of drugs and other active ingredients. Not recommended for those allergic to shellfish and fish.
