A natural product called chitosan is derived from chitin, a polysaccharide found in the exo-skeleton of shellfish like shrimp or crabs. Chitosan affects fat in the stomach before it has a chance to become metabolized. It dissolves in the stomach and converts to a gel which "traps" fat, thereby preventing its absorption and subsequent storage.
