Glucomannan is an all natural fiber supplement that promotes a feeling of fullness.
Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber source that is derived from the root of the Konjac plant. Comprised of approximately 70% Glucomannan, the Konjac plant is primarily cultivated in Japan. It has been used for centuries in Asian cultures for traditional foods such as noodles, tofu and konyaku, which is a Japanese jelly.
Due to Glucomannan’s expanding properties, it can be useful in promoting a feeling of fullness thereby resulting in people eating less. By expanding in the stomach, Glucomannan can be useful for people trying to lose weight. Fiber-containing foods are also known to support healthy cholesterol balance, and regularity.* When Glucomannan is placed in water, it can swell up to 17 times its original volume which makes it effective and convenient as a fiber supplement.
