The Many Benefits of Glucomannan - Konjac Root Powder

Glucomannan is a soluble, bulk-forming fiber derived from the konjac root (Amorphophallus konjac) that can help to maintain intestinal regularity.* Glucomannan may also help to maintain serum lipid levels already within the healthy range.* In addition, by promoting satiety (feeling of fullness), Glucomannan can be a convenient addition to a weight management plan that includes a healthy diet and exercise program.* Let's take a closer look at some of the many benefits of Glucomannan.

Glucomannan for Weight Management

One of the most popular uses of glucomannan is for weight management. This soluble fiber can promote satiety, which means it helps you feel fuller after eating. This can be extremely helpful if you're trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. When you feel fuller, you're less likely to overeat or make unhealthy food choices. In one study, participants who took glucomannan before meals lost an average of 5.5 pounds over an 8-week period, while those who didn't take glucomannan only lost an average of 1.5 pounds.*

Glucomannan for Cholesterol Management

In addition to promoting weight loss, glucomannan can also help to maintain already healthy cholesterol levels. This soluble fiber binds with bile acids in the intestine and helps to removed them from the body.* This process can help to reduce LDL ("bad") cholesterol and total cholesterol levels. What's more, glucomannan may also help to increase HDL ("good") cholesterol levels.*

As you can see, there are many benefits to taking glucomannan supplements. If you're looking for a convenient way to promote satiety and support your weight management or cholesterol management goals, glucomannan may be the perfect solution for you. Be sure to talk to your doctor before beginning any supplement regimen, however, as glucomannan may not be right for everyone. For example, those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have difficulty swallowing pills, or have diabetes should not take glucomannan supplements.*
