in the wings of butterflies and in mushrooms. But it wasn’t
until the 1800’s that a French professor discovered this polysaccharide.
Today, Chitin is the world’s second most abundant resource and
is used for a large variety of applications.

How Much Fat can chitin absorb?
Chitin can absorb up to 12 times its weight in fat. It acts
like a magnet, attracting fat, and trapping it like a scavenger
with an insatiable appetite for fats. One 250mg tablet of chitin
can attract, trap and rid the body of about 3 grams of fat.
Can I eat what I like and still not have the fat stick to
my thighs, my stomach?
The secret of chitin is that it attracts fat like a magnet,
traps it, and then expels it from the body. What is important
is that the
What about shellfish allergies?
Chitin is non-allergenic. People with shellfish allergies are
allergic to the meat, not the fibre in the shell.
How does chitin differ from other fibres, like cereals, or
Chitin and chitosan have the unique ability to attract and
bind fat making it indigestible, especially animal fat.
There are many wonderful fibres that we eat such as oat bran,
but chitin is unique in that it is magnetically attracted to
fat, especially dangerous saturated fat. Chitin is the only
fat binding fibre ever discovered. Chitin seeks out, attracts,
traps, soaks up and binds fat stopping it from being digested.
In fact, it is the only substance ever discovered that will
bind excess fat like this.
This sounds too good to be true. I can eat the foods I normally
I love prime rib, but I won’t have to worry about all that
fat and adding weight and my cholesterol and triglycerides?
Not if you take chitin about 15 minutes before your meal. Just
eat your chitin whenever you have a meal with fat. If you feel
that you can’t resist that Big Mac with French fries, then take
your chitin tablets. The fat will be expelled undigested and
will never reach your waistline. It will also not enter your
blood and be deposited in your arteries. The fat will never
get into your system. It’s isolated, sequestered, bound up and
How do you stop fat from being digested by soaking it up?
Fat is the most difficult by far of the three sources of calories
to digest. Of these three sources—proteins, carbohydrates and
fat— fat that contains twice the calories per gram as protein
or carbohydrates. Moreover, fat is very difficult to digest,
and many digestive problems originate with the bodies inability
to digest fats. When you take chitin , the enzymes responsible
for digestion of fats cannot react with the fat to digest it.
In the few hours it is in the body it simply is bound by the
chitin, passes through the colon, and is excreted.
You can see this for yourself with a simple kitchen demonstration.
When you mix chitin with any fat, especially saturated animal
fat such as bacon grease, in water you can see for yourself
how chitin soaks up and binds the fat. We invite you to try
this yourself. See with your own eyes the process by which chitin
works. Once bound, the chitin then passes through your colon
Can I really eat what I like and lose weight?
The amazing, almost counter intuitive, characteristic of chitin
as a dietary aide is that you are not required to change either
your habit or your excercise routine to lose weight. If you
do, then the weight loss will be dramatic, the effects stunning
in a very short period of time.
What is even more important to your health is that once you have
reached your weight goals, you can use chitin to maintain your desired
weight. The most dangerous thing you can do to your body is yo-yo,
up and down dieting. It is absolutely more dangerous for you to
lose 30-50 lbs. on some fad diet and then put it back on again.
The medical weight loss profession is rarely unanimous on any issue,
but it does agree that yo-yo dieting is a killer, nothing is more
dangerous to your long- term health. Let me repeat that: nothing
is more dangerous to your health than yo-yo dieting, period!
