What Is Konjac root?
Glucomannan comes from the konjac plant, or rather the root of the plant. Glucomannan is a soluble dietary fiber and the konjac plant that has been widely used in Asia for a very long time. When mixed with water, Glucomannan is a versatile food item, which can be shaped, sliced, and formed into a variety of ways. No matter how it is shaped, it remains a low carb food source and by its very nature, it is a low glycemic food.
Konjac root itself can be cooked and eaten either alone or mixed with vegetables and meat. In addition to being used as a food source, Glucomannan is a gelling agent, and is used to thicken foods as well as acting as an emulsifier, gelling agent, and emulsifier. As you can see, there is a long history of the use of Glucomannan relating to food but why is it suddenly so popular today?
The short answer is weight loss. In a world obsessed with weight loss solutions, Glucomannan is attracting attention for a variety of reasons, the first and foremost reason being that it helps with weight loss.
Many products lay claim to this very same thing, but Glucomannan is gaining in popularity because it is effective and better yet, it is a natural substance! Glucomannan has even proven to be an effective way to lose weight without having to change your diet habits or exercising. Most diet aides only work when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise at least three times a week, but Glucomannan will work without the users making any changes.
Glucomannan is most often taken as a tablet but it also comes as a powder as well. The powder has virtually no taste and because it is a natural thickener, it works very well when mixed into smoothies. Smoothies are not the only food that it can be added to, you can add the powder into nearly any food, it will not change the flavor, and it will give the food some extra texture even. It is a very versatile product.
Other ways to get Glucomannan is to buy Japanese shirataki noodles, they are made with glucomannan, but they are an acquired taste! Some health food and natural food stores also carry Glucomannan gums as well.
Unless you are using it in powder form or eating the shirataki noodles, you will need to take the Glucomannan roughly 15-30 before you are ready to eat a meal.
It is very important to drink a lot of water when you take the Glucomannan, especially if taking it in pill form. Even if you are mixing the powder into your food, juice or a smoothie, you will still need to drink water alongside of it.
It is necessary to drink water to allow the Glucomannan to work like it is supposed to but not drinking enough water with it can also be a health risk, see the side effects section for more information about that.
How It Works
Glucomannan works the same way most dietary fibers work, after being ingested, it will begin to absorb water that is in your digestive tract; as it absorbs water, it expands and thickens, remember, it has been used historically as a thickening agent in Asia. That expansion is how it helps with weight loss, the primary effect of Glucomannan is that you feel fuller, so that you eat less.
Glucomannan works best when taken before you eat and you must take it with plenty of water!
When taken shortly before a meal, the Glucomannan has time to soak up water and expand, making you feel full. By absorbing the water in your digestive track, Glucomannan will also hinder your system from absorbing cholesterol and carbohydrates, which is why it not only helps with weight loss, but with reducing cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure as well.
Your body will rid itself of the expanded Glucomannan in the natural way, which is why Glucomannan is also used to treat constipation, and it is a good system cleanse because it is a soluble fiber and is all-natural.
Who Needs It?
People who have any of the following will benefit from taking Glucomannan:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- High Cholesterol
Glucomannan is beneficial to people with any of the above and so it is most commonly taken by those looking to lose weight, help with constipation, and help lower cholesterol and high blood pressure and to help those with type 2 diabetes because Glucomannan has a therapeutic effect on type 2 diabetes sufferers.
Medical Research Results
Studies have shown that it is possible to lose an average of 5.5 pounds over a span of eight weeks, without any changes to diet or a need to increase or add an exercise regime!
A study compiled by the British Journal of Nutrition had amazing results, with the study group that took the Glucomannan having an average weight loss, over a 16-week span, of 10 pounds, compared to only 1.7 pounds on the average lost by the group that did not take the Glucomannan over the same span of time.
Another study showed that the group that took 1g of glucomannan twice a day not had a significant weight gain as opposed to the control group, but that their LDL cholesterol also was reduced.
An Italian study on the uses of Glucomannan and constipation showed that glucomannan is effective in treating and managing constipation and has very little side effects.
A study done by the Institute of Nutritional Science proved that glucomannan is effective in alleviating hyperglycemia for type 2 diabetics.
The biggest danger with glucomannan is when it is taken with insufficient water, especially when taking it in pill or tablet form. When taken without enough water the pill can lodge in the throat, expanding there instead of the stomach, causing you to choke. If swallowed but not taken with enough water, it will expand and thicken in your digestive tract and can cause a blockage.
It is recommended that you drink at least 8 ounces of water with each 1g of glucomannan that you take and that is the minimum amount that you should take. As long as it is taken with sufficient water, glucomannan has very little side effects.
