Multi-purpose plant-based dietary fiber. What is glucomannan? Glucomannan is a soluble and fermentable dietary fiber from the konjac root plant. Its chemical structure is similar to that of galactomannan (from guar gum) and comprises a polysaccharide chain of glucose and mannose. . Glucomannan can absorb up to 200 times its weight in water and forms a thick gel-like mass that has been shown to be approximately five times greater than that of guar gum. . . How does glucomannan support health? As a water-soluble fiber glucomannan is appropriate for the relief of occasional constipation.*. The unique bulk-forming property of glucomannan makes it a top-performing fiber specifically suited for providing a feeling of satiety (fullness) and promoting healthy weight loss.*. Glucomannan may be used as part of your diet to help maintain a healthy blood sugar level.*. Promotes healthy blood lipid metabolism and helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.*. Why choose Vitacost Glucomannan? Has no unpleasant smell or taste.
