The market today is flooded with so many weight loss products that it is difficult to identify the fake from the real. These products are not only expensive but also ineffective. Fat magnets are newly launched weight loss products that are claimed to be the easiest way of losing weight without any side effects.

Fat magnets are a natural food supplement made from the patented formula of Chitosan derived mainly from shellfish. First launched five years ago, fat magnets represent the most popular weight loss product. The product is ideal for dieters and for those who occasionally like to indulge in rich foods but do not wish to pay the price. They are basically capsules that are easy to take and if used sensibly can be of real benefit to those wanting to shed weight.

The digested fats in our body are negatively charged and the fat magnets are positively charged. Just like the attraction between opposite charges, the fat magnets grab the fats in the body which are then harmlessly passed through the digestive track. Fat magnets do not bind every gram of fat and allow some of it to be absorbed by the system. However, they can trap both essential and non essential fats. So, it is good to take vitamin or mineral supplements at least two hours before taking them.

To achieve the maximum benefits of fat magnets, some efforts should be made to control fat intake. You must follow a low fat diet designed by your nutritionist or some qualified person. The less the fat intake, the easier it is for the pill to work.

Fat magnets are natural and do not contain any weight loss drugs or stimulants. Therefore they have no side effects. One of the main ingredients is derived from shellfish. If you are allergic to it, you should consult your doctor before starting your medication.

Although Chitosan can decrease fat absorption, the amount contained in the capsules is too small to have much of an effect on cholesterol levels. A study involving thirty overweight volunteers who received four capsules of chitosan daily for twenty eight days but failed to reduce any substantial amount of weight shows that these fat magnets may not be as effective as they are claimed to be.
