Chitosan makes a relatively good weight loss supplement and does, to some extent,
stop gain of weight. Another upside of Chitosan is it boosts the immune system, improves
the good cholesterol count and lowers the blood pressure.

constipation, swelling of heels and wrists and rashes. It is advisable that pregnant
women stay away from it.
