It is official: the weight-reducing effect of glucomannan was confirmed by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority)*

Do you wish to bring your body into a good shape? Get rid of excess pounds? Glucomannan is the ideal dietary supplement for you.

Glucomannan from the konjac root is regarded as a valuable water-soluble fibre and can have positive properties for the intestinal health. The dried rootstock of the konjac root contains approx. 40% glucomannan. Apart from cellulose, it is part of the plant’s cell membranes and gives it it’s stability. Unlike the potato, the konjac root does not contain any proteins or carbohydrates that are utilisable for the body. Oats, which are a popular fibre suppliers, contain approx. 6% fibres, whereas the konjac root contains 40%.
In Eastern Asia, where the konjac originates from, the root vegetable is used in the kitchen as well as in the traditional health care.

Lose weight with glucomannan (konjac extract)

Glucomannan has a high water binding capacity and is able to bind 50 times of its own weight in water. Therefore, please ensure an adequate liquid intake when consuming this product (one glass of water per capsule).
Glucomannan expands its original volume many times over in the stomach, which causes a long-lasting feeling of satiety. As a result, you naturally have to eat a lot less to be full.

Another advantage of the konjac powder and the contained fibre glucomannan is its influence on the appetite. In 2009, researchers of the Mahidol University in Bangkok found out that the fibre lowers the concentration of the hormone ghrelin in the blood, which is responsible for the regulation of the appetite.

Glucomannan binds bile acid in the intestines. Because bile acid is needed for the digestion, it has to be replaced constantly. The body needs cholesterol to form bile acid.

  • plant-based fibre, which ensures a long-lasting feeling of satiety and promotes the intestinal health
  • is able to inhibit fat-splitting enzymes during the digestion and decrease the fat resorption from food
  • can be of importance for a healthy cholesterol level or blood sugar level
  • vegan, without magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide

*EFSA (European Food Safety Authority): Glucomannan contributes to weight loss with a daily intake of 3g glucomannan in three doses of 1g each, together with 1-2 glasses of water before meals and in the context of an energy-restricted diet. Glucomannan also contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels with a daily intake of 4g glucomannan.
