What is Glucomannan?
With new weight loss supplements on the market all the time, it's hard to know what really works and what doesn’t. According to clinical studies and famous celebrity health specialist Dr. Oz it is "one of the best ways to control your hunger," "and one of the best appetite suppressant supplements."
To find out if Glucomannan lives up to its reputation, we have taken a closer look at this so-called miracle supplement. Here's what you need to know:
History behind Glucomannan
Glucomannan is a sugar-like root obtained from the root of the Konjac plant. This plant has been used for centuries in traditional Japanese cooking as an appetite suppressant. It has gained so much popularity in Japan that it has its own nickname - "the diet of the intestines" - which probably gives you a pretty good idea of how it works. Glucomannan/ Konjac provides such a low calorie intake and at the same time gives the feeling of fullness by absorbing water in the stomach and then expanding and forming a bulky fibre in your stomach.
When it spreads through the digestive tract, it will reduce the absorption of carbohydrates and cholesterol, and thus aid weight loss. This supplement also keeps you fuller for longer without leaving you bloated.
The bulky fiber is then removed from the body and your digestive system is left cleansed left gutted and therefore it is said to help with a host of medical problems such as reducing cholesterol, helps control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes and constipation.
These supplements are GMP certified and made using the highest quality ingredients, subject to a thorough quality control test.
In 2007 a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, took a group of participants who took Glucomannan capsules through 6 weeks and lost on average 4.5 kg.
