konjac fiber supplement glucomannan root benefits healthy
Glucomannan is a natural, water-soluble dietary fiber extracted from the roots of the elephant yam, also known as konjac.
It’s available as a supplement, in drink mixes and is also added to food products, such as pasta and flour. It’s also the main ingredient in shirataki noodles.
Glucomannan comprises 40% of the dry weight of the elephant yam, which is originally from Southeast Asia. It has a long history of use in herbal mixtures and traditional foods like tofu, noodles and konjac jelly.
In addition to being sold as a dietary supplement, it’s used as a food additive — an emulsifier and thickener denoted
Glucomannan has an exceptional ability to absorb water and is one of the most viscous dietary fibers known.
It absorbs so much liquid that a small amount of glucomannan added to a glass of water turns the entire content into a gel. These unique properties are believed to mediate its effects on weight loss.
SUMMARY Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber, extracted from the roots of the elephant yam. It has gained considerable attention as a weight loss supplement.

Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber.
Like other soluble fibers, it’s believed to promote weight loss in several ways:
It’s very low in calories.
It takes up space in your stomach and promotes a feeling of fullness (satiety), reducing food intake at a subsequent meal.
It also feeds the friendly bacteria in your intestine, which turn it into short-chain fatty acids like butyrate, shown to protect against fat gain in some animal studies.
Feeding your gut bacteria may also have other benefits. Some studies have shown a correlation between altered gut bacteria and body weight.
Glucomannan differs from most other soluble fibers, as it’s exceptionally viscous, making it particularly effective for weight loss.
SUMMARY Like other soluble fibers, glucomannan absorbs water in your stomach and contributes to feelings of fullness. In addition, it may promote reduced calorie intake and weight loss in other ways.
Other Health Benefits
In addition to promoting weight loss, glucomannan may improve some heart disease risk factors.
According to a systematic review of 14 studies, glucomannan can lower:
It primarily reduces blood cholesterol by decreasing the absorption of cholesterol in your gut.
According to this research, adding glucomannan to your diet could potentially lower your risk of developing heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
As a water-soluble fiber, glucomannan has also been successfully used to treat constipation
