KONJAC GLUCOMANNAN: BLOOD SUGAR SUPPORT & WEIGHT LOSS

Konjac/Glucomannan is a dietary fibre commonly added to many foods as an emulsifier and thickener. It comes from the Konjac root, a perennial plant primarily grown in Asia. It has been shown to have one of the highest molecular weights and is one of the most viscous of any dietary fibres.

Simply put, (konjac) glucomannan absorbs water as it travels through the digestive tract, increasing the bulk of the stool and making the stool easier to pass or move through the colon. For individuals prone to constipation, this means less straining and a decreased risk of fissures or hemorrhoid formation. Many use glucomannan as a weight loss aid, in that it helps to get rid of excess water weight.

SUPER FIBRE


It also promotes regular and healthy elimination and is an effective method of getting rid of excess toxins and hormones, including cholesterol, in the body. Efficient removal of these substances may give an individual more energy, make them less sluggish and fatigued (common side effects of toxic overload) and more apt to increase their exercise and eat a healthier, more well balanced diet, further contributing to weight loss. Studies have also shown that taking a glucomannan supplement one hour prior to eating can reduce caloric intake and keep individuals satisfied longer when compared with placebo.

KONJAC ROOT GLUCOMANNAN & BLOOD SUGAR SUPPORT


(Konjac) Glucomannan, much like any fibre, is also helpful in regulating blood sugar levels and can be beneficial for individuals with diabetes. Diabetics need to be cautious when taking glucomannan, as it may interfere with insulin and other blood sugar medications. This product needs to be taken 2-3 hours away from any medication and blood sugar levels should be monitored closely in case there is a need to adjust dosages for prevention of hyper or hypoglycemic states.

Konjac root is particularly useful for reducing the glycemic index of foods. "Glycemic index" refers to how quickly a carbohydrate is metabolized by the body. When a food is described as having a lower glycemic index, this means that it will cause a lower increase in blood sugar than foods with a higher glycemic index (GI). Taken with food, konjac / glucomannan effectively slows the release of the sugars in the food down, allowing the body more time to burn the calories they contain off as energy instead of storing them as body fat. This is part of the reason why konjac is recommended as a weight loss supplement.

It also helps to reduce the fluctuations in blood sugar that can occur when you eat unhealthy carbs that can lead to cravings and subsequent poor food choices and weight gain.

Konjac is available under a variety of trade names such as PGX, GO4Trim, FiberFlow, as well as simply konjac and glucomannan.

Health Canada has put out an advisory on (konjac) Glucomannan supplements in any form, stating that individuals need to take each gram of glucomannan with at least 8 oz of water to reduce risk of choking or developing a blockage in the throat, esophagus or intestines. For these reasons it is also recommended that these products be taken 2-3 hours before bed. Glucomannan can be taken on its own in capsule or powder form or is often combined with other forms of dietary fibre.

A HEALTHY WEIGHT CAN HELP PREVENT THE FOLLOWING

Many medical conditions are brought on or worsened by excess weight.

They include: joint problems caused by the need to bear excess weight, circulatory disturbances, depression, diabetes, gallbladder disease, heart disease, hernias, hypertension, infertility, kidney disease, sleep apnea and skin infections.

DIETING?

Yo-yo dieting also leads to obesity by making the body more efficient at storing fat and altering normal appetite signals.  Emotional factors, such as grief or stress, can contribute to obesity by the use of food as a coping mechanism.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS

Medical conditions that lead to obesity include hypothyroidism, diabetes, hypoglycemia, and candida.  The use of medications, such as antidepressants, cortisone and oral contraceptives, may cause obesity by increasing appetite or decreasing metabolism.  Pregnancy causes weight gain in order to provide nourishment for the fetus and nutrient stores for breastfeeding.  It is normal and should not be limited as long as the woman is eating a well-balanced diet.  Genetics also plays a role in determining your body type and metabolic rate.

DIETARY ADVICE


Dietary advice with regard to weight loss is plentiful; just go into your local bookstore.  The caloric theory states that: If you take in more calories than your body requires it will store them as fat, if you take in less calories than your body requires it will metabolize energy stores to make up the difference.  The key is to alter your caloric intake by only small amounts and increase your metabolism. Skipping meals or starving yourself actually slows the metabolism by telling the body that food is scarce.  Exercise is essential in order to stimulate the body to burn fat and build lean tissue.

5 out of 5 stars Definitely Fills You Up - and Fast
by from Toronto on 21/6/2016
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Great & cheaper alternative to PGX. I've used this product only before dinner as I usually feel peckish and ruin my diet at night. It's really helped curb my appetite and stay on track :)

5 out of 5 stars PGX substitute
by from Vancouver on 4/9/2012
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
This stuff really works! Wife and both tried a bottle of PGX and had good results. Later realized that it is simply konjac root/glucomannan and medium chain triglycerides. So, now we just take a teaspoon of Alpha DME organic virgin coconut oil with it. Still seeing good results but at a fraction of the cost. We use both this brand and the Now Foods glucomannan.

4 out of 5 stars Great appetite control
by from Saskatchewan on 29/9/2011
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Thought I would try this rather than the Pgx products again. This works great. Controls appetite all day. I will continue to use this until I have reached my weightloss goal and then I will keep using for the benefits of cutting and keeping cholesterol down. Luv it!!!
