Glucomannan is a natural, water-soluble dietary fiber extracted from the roots of the elephant yam, also known as konjac.
Clinically proven to support weight loss
Glucomannan has been proven to contribute to weight-loss as part of an energy-restricted diet.
It is approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) as a proven and safe supplement to aid weight loss and lower cholesterol levels, when taken as part of a calorie controlled diet. The bulk-forming fibre absorbs water in the stomach and it is believed to promote weight loss via several mechanisms:
- It has a very low calorie content.
- It takes up space in the stomach and promotes a feeling of fullness (satiety), reducing food intake at a subsequent meal.
What is unique about glucomannan?
Glucomannan absorbs so much liquid that if you empty a capsule into a small glass of water, the entire thing turns into a gel. Because of this, it is important to take capsules with a full glass of water to safely and naturally assist weight loss.
In addition to being sold as a dietary supplement, it is used as a food additive, specifically as an emulsifier and thickener denoted as E425. It is a common ingredient in foods such as pasta, noodles and tofu.
