Chitosan is frequently sold at health stores as a 'fat attractor'. Chitosan binds to fat in the digestive system and expels it from the body, which aids in weight loss.
Chitosan recently gained approval in the USA for use in bandages. The bandages include a layer of
carefully produced chitosan that, when applied to a wound, causes rapid clotting, stopping the bleeding. Chitosan is hypoallergenic, and has natural anti-bacterial properties, further supporting its use in field bandages.
