Glucomannan is a water-soluble, fermentable, and highly viscous dietary fiber made from the root of the konjac plant (also known as Elephant Yam). The soluble fiber in Glucomannan Supplements absorbs large quantities of water, increasing the weight of the food you have eaten without increasing its calorie count. Therefore you have a feeling of fullness and less of an appetite for more food.
Glucomannan Supplements will also improve your bowel health, blood sugar, and cholesterol more effectively than any other fiber. This is because Glucomannan’s super-fiber qualities decrease the speed in which food enters your bloodstream and increase the speed in which food exits your body through the digestive tract. That keeps your blood sugar and cholesterol in ideal balance, which helps to quickly eliminate toxins from your system.
