Konjac glucomannan, a viscous soluble fiber, provides important support for satiety and weight loss, lipid and triglyceride metabolism, glycemic response and glucose function, vascular health, and gastrointestinal health, regularity and healthy gut microflora.*
Uses For Glucomannan
Weight Management: Glucomannan is a soluble fiber with a high molecular weight and viscosity compared to other fibers, providing enhanced support for weight management. Significant mean weight loss was observed in one 8-week double blind trial, an effect that may be due to the effect of konjac glucomannan on satiety. A later study demonstrated that addition of a resistance and endurance exercise training program to a glucomannan-rich diet provides enhanced support for healthy body composition, lipid metabolism and triglycerides.*
Cardiovascular Health: In several controlled trials, konjac glucomannan supported healthy lipid metabolism and triglyceride levels, possibly by promoting healthy bile acid secretion. Additionally, it supports healthy glucose utilization and vascular function to support overall cardiovascular health.*
GI Health: As a dietary fiber, konjac glucomannan supports GI regularity. Research indicates that it also promotes healthy microflora balance, enhancing the growth of lactobacillus and bifidobacteria for a healthy gastrointestinal tract.*
