Unveiling Glucomannan

Filed Under: Supplements at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Questions about glucomannan have significantly increased since it was mentioned on Dr. Oz show a couple weeks ago. As people look for answers, Lucky Blog hopes to explain a little bit more about this helpful supplement.

Under the name of Konjac root fiber, sales of glucomannan supplements have soared as this potent fiber is one of the key ingredients of a new revolutionary weight loss diet, along with raspberry ketone, white kidney bean extract, and L-Carnitine.

Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber that can absorb up to 200 times its weight in water. Derived from konjac root (Amorphophallus konjac), this true weight loss helper has been proven to help to slow down the rise in the blood sugar after meals, support healthy cholesterol levels, and speed up metabolism.

However, fat burning isn’t the only potential health benefits from glucomannan. A food additive used as an emulsifier and thickener, glucomannan products are also sold as nutritional supplements for constipation, obesity, high cholesterol, acne vulgaris and type-2 diabetes.

Like other forms of dietary fiber, glucomannan is considered a bulk-forming laxative. In the treatment of chronic constipation, glucomannan significantly improved symptoms of constipation while being well-tolerated and free of relevant side effects.

Glucomannan has demonstrated statistically significant improvements in the total cholesterol of obese patients and may be useful as a therapeutic adjunct for type 2 diabetes. When using glucomannan and other dietary fiber supplements, it is best to start out with a small amount and increase gradually. It is recommended to drink at least 8 ounces of water each time any bulk-forming laxative, including glucomannan, is taken.

Glucomannan is an ingredient in a variety of dietary supplement products marketed to aid in weight loss but this natural supplement can help in other conditions as well.
