What is Drasanvi Chitosan?
Drasanvi Chitosan is a nutritional supplement in vegetable capsules, that is made of high density Chitosan.

Properties of Chitosan
Chitosan, also known as Chitosane, is a linear polisaccharide made of chains of D-Glucosamine and acetyl D-Glucosamine, obtained from the shells of some crustaceans.
In its original form, Chitosan is a marine fibre that can not be absorbed and digested naturally by the body, and is therefore safely expelled through the large intestine. Drasanvi use high density Chitosan in these capsules, so as to overcome this problem, improving solubility and absorption capacity.
A large number of studies have investigated the positive effects that Chitosan has on body fat. On of them, done by the Health and Medical Research Centre, from San Antonio, Texas, showed that Chitosan supplementation on a group of obese individuals, had significant better effects on weight loss and body composition index, than the control group.
