Product Description

WHAT IS GLUCOMANNAN (KONJAC)? Glucomannan from BULK POWDERS is the highest quality powder derived exclusively from the Konjac plant. Glucomannan (Konjac) is a form of water soluble fibre, which has been shown in research to contribute to weight loss. Glucomannan increases the feeling of fullness (satiety) and thus helps prevent unnecessary snacking by keeping you feeling fuller for longer. Amongst other things, Glucomannan has also been shown to contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels and improve gut and bowel health. WHERE IS GLUCOMANNAN (KONJAC) FOUND? Glucomannan is sourced from the rhizomes of the Amorphophalli Konjac plant, generally found in South-East Asia. As a food source you may find it in things like shirataki noodles. It is also used in gelatinous products due to its ability to take on the flavour of whatever it is cooked or marinated in. You may be familiar with the wave of new "zero calorie" weight loss noodle/pasta/rice products? These use Glucomannan as the primary ingredient! GLUCOMANNAN IS ALSO REFERRED TO AS: Konjac, Amorphophalli Konjac, Konjac Root, Konjac Fibre. GLUCOMANNAN AND WEIGHT LOSS Essentially Gliucomannan is highly absorbent and draws in liquid, causing expansion. In terms of supplementing with Glucomannan Powder; the powder will absorb water, causing it to expand in the stomach. This results in a feeling of fullness (satiety) and in turn helps to stave off cravings and unnecessary eating. If you are dieting or looking to lose weight, this can be very beneficial. In one study, users of Glucomannan dropped an additional 0.8kg (1.8lbs) over 5 weeks in comparison to the control group who were not supplementing with Glucomannan. PERFORMANCE BENEFITS Glucomannan (Konjac) has no direct performance benefits, as it primarily used for weight loss. However, for sports people, a reduction in body fat can increase power to weight ratio. HEALTH BENEFITS Glucomannan (Konjac) contributes to weight loss and is often used to increase the feeling of satiety/fullness. Glucomannan (Konjac) contributes to maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Glucomannan (Konjac) increases levels of healthy bacteria (such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli) improving gut and bowel health.

some people seem to be displaying a real lack of common sense when using this product, admittedly there are no clear instruction on the pack. But by doing a small amount of research over the internet its very easy to establish how it should be used, in fact the lack of clear instruction is the only reason I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5. That and the fact I had to buy two packs in order to avoid the delivery charge, when really all i wanted to do was test it. In future i will buy the bigger packs

There are many different ways you can take this product, in my case I simply used about a shots worth of juice in the bottom of a cup. I then sprinkled in a level amount (Not heaped) from a dry tea spoon, (you get a little plastic spoon in the pack but i found this to be a waste of time). I then stirred thoroughly.
by sprinkling in gently and then stirring thoroughly this should avoid clumping and if you do spot any small lumps just crush them against the side of the cup with the back of your spoon.... simples! Then as quickly as possible... down it! you need to get the mixture into your system before it starts to expand, at this point its practically tasteless and does not give off much of any smell.
If you leave it in the cup for a while it will start to expand and become jellfied, at this point it will start to give off a slightly fishy smell. Just make sure you have swallowed before the expanding begins and you wont have any problems, also it is advised that you drink at least another cups worth of liquid (water,juice ,tea) after taking the mixture, just to be on the safe side.
I have read reports of the pill version of this product expanding inside peoples intestines and them needing to go to hospital to have it removed, so please use caution.

If you want to lose weight without ever feeling hungry, just take a little of this, in water, before every meal, as described on the packet. Brilliant.

You have to be careful with this. My first attempt ended up as a mug full of thick gloop because I left it a few seconds too long. Once you get the hang of mixing it, then it's not so bad. It fills you up and tastes like wallpaper paste! I wish there was a bit of flavour to it.

Does the business. Swells up massively in water and if used as instructed definitely keeps you full for ages. Little tip, heating it up will make it thicker... so depending on what you want to use it for...

Bought this as an alternative to Slim Sip but disappointed. Doesn't really give a satisfied fuller feeling unlike Slim Sip, which is odd considering it's the same main ingredient. Won't be purchasing another.

Doesn't work. Has a gritty wallpaper texture. A waste of money. I put it in water and then I tried it in protein shakes-to no effect.
