The properties of Glucomannan

Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber that is derived from konjac root (Amorphophallus konjac). A Variety of Studies show that Glucomannan reduces appetite and food cravings.

Glucomannan (KGM) is a dietary fiber hydrocolloidal polysaccharide isolated from the tubers of Amorphophallus konjac. Over the last few decades, the purified KGM has been offered as a food additive as well as a dietary supplement in many countries. Its main property is i keeping you feel fuller for longer. As a dietary fiber, Glucomannan absorbs water and maintains a feeling of satiation, effectively reducing cravings. It means you’ll be less likely to eat between meals and especially later in the evening. A 60 day study of overweight adults revealed that Glucomannan reduces body weight, body fat, and cholesterol levels without causing the loss of lean mass commonly associated with weight loss. A diet containing konjac flour or KGM is considered as healthier, and these foods are popular in many Asian and European markets. Further, due to the adhesive property of KGM, it can form a defensive covering on the surface of the intestine. Additionally, KGM can reduce the levels of glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure and can enable weight loss. Its wide-ranging effects prevent many chronic diseases through the regulation of metabolism. KGM offers multiple health benefits such as anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, laxative, prebiotic, and anti-inflammatory activities.
