Block Fat from Being Absorbed
When a person is serious about dieting, they often cut back significantly on fats. But there’s always that occasion when you are faced with a friend’s birthday cake or an irresistible fatty dessert. In those special cases, you may want stay on your fitness track by using a fat blocker supplement. These are also used by fitness-oriented people to lower body fat levels. Most often, fat blockers include chitosan or orlistat (the active ingredient in alli). Fat blockers work by potentially blocking absorption of up to 30% of fat grams consumed in a specific time frame. Decreasing absorption of fat by the intestines reduces the overall number of calories you absorb. Orlistat works by disabling lipase, an enzyme that helps break down dietary fat into smaller components to be used or stored for energy. Another common active ingredient in most fat blockers is Chitosan - a natural product that comes from shellfish and is not digestible, and thus has no calories. It is suggested that chitosan can encapsulate fats and cholesterol before they can be absorbed by the body.
