About Glucomannan

Glucomannan is a water-soluble polysaccharide extracted from the tubers (roots) of konjac, which is cultivated as food in Japan and Indonesia. Because human digestive enzymes cannot break down this polysaccharide, it passes through the body largely intact, which is the reason it is classified a dietary fiber. Glucomannan is hygroscopic and the dry powder swells into a bulky fiber in water, absorbing up to 50 times its weight while in water. Glucomannan's principal use is as a bulking agent to promote the feeling of "fullness" or "satiety", thereby helping to manage food intake. Glucomannan may also slow the absorption of glucose (sugar) and cholesterol from the gut, helping to support overall cardiovascular health.

Caution

Please consult a healthcare professional before using this product if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking any OTC/prescription medications. Some individuals may experience minor gastric distress and changes to bowel movements as the body adjusts to the addition of the fiber. These can be managed by starting with a lower dosage and slowly working your way up to a higher dosage (up to 3.5 g a day). It is important to drink plenty of water (90 to 100 fl oz) when taking this supplement to minimize the risk of constipation and dehydration. Store in the original container away from moisture and sunlight. Keep out of the reach of children.
