Glucomannan Gold Ready-To-Mix Powder (Solvent-free, e. pure)
Konjac Glucomannan Gold (Ready-to-Mix Powder)Fiber-Rich Glucomannans from Konjac Root
Glucomannan is a water-soluble polysaccharide concentrated 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 as a dietary fiber.
Glucomannan is hygroscopic, and in water, the dry powder swells into bulky fiber-- absorbing up to 50 times its weight. 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, which helps support overall cardiovascular health.
