Glucomannan Supplements: Information
Glucomannan (GLUE-co-man-an) fiber is prepared from the starchy root of the konjac plant. It is a soluble fiber capable of absorbing many times its own weight in water or other fluids. Glucomannan supplements are used as fiber-based appetite suppressants (no stimulant properties).
Glucomannan's Health Benefits
Taken before meals with a glass of water, it is an effective appetite suppressant. The water and Glucomannan fiber combine so that you are comfortably full with less food. This may help dieters lose more weight and feel less hungry. Like any soluble fiber, glucomannan also helps promote healthy elimination and may lower blood lipids with prolonged use.
Using Glucomannan Supplements
Use as directed and drink plenty of water when using glucomannan supplements.
