Introduction to Chitosan

Chitosan is a polysaccharide found in the shells of crustaceans.

Sources of Chitosan

Chitosan is extracted from the shells of crustaceans, such as shrimp and crab.

Known Side Effect of Using Chitosan

While no long-term studies of the effects of chitosan on human health have been done, animal studies suggest that this compound could inhibit the absorption of minerals and fat-soluble vitamins. Adverse effects on the growth of children and on the outcome of pregnancy are also possible. In addition, although chitosan-included alterations in intestinal flora are believed to be beneficial, the possibility that these changes may have negative long-term consequences has not been ruled out. People with intestinal malabsorption syndromes should not use chitosan. At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with chitosan.
