The frightening post-Christmas crunch has already reached its halfway stage, and many of us have already started a healthy life, exercise and a good diet to detoxify ourselves from the recent Christmas festivities.
A few pounds’ overweight is one the things we inevitably take from almost every Christmas, and today, from Mariscos Castellar we want you to know a solution that may make your slimming diets easier.
Today we talk about the Chitosan, a substance that comes from the chitin existing in the crustacean shells as shrimps, crabs, lobsters, etc., and through which the so-called chitosan is obtained.
Many are the characteristics conferred to this substance: antifungal (prevent the fungal growth), antimicrobial, antiviral and procoagulant properties, in addition to being emulsifiable, absorbent and biodegradable. In fact, it has many uses and applications within the medical field or the agri-food industry.
But for our New Year’s resolution, what’s most interesting is that it has the property of being a “fat-expel”, and therefore, a help for the slimming diets because it naturally avoids the calorie intake from the food we take.
The way it acts is by catching a part of the fat we ingest and adhering it to itself. In that way, our body does not consume it and the most part proceeds to be excreted. It is essential to know that this complement is not going to expel the fat we have already accumulated, but acts on the fat we consume at that moment; that is why it is important to complete this help with the healthiest diet possible and exercise.
Besides being a delicious food, did you ever imagined that all this can be done with the shells of our shellfish?
