Haven’t heard of Glucomannan? If you want an easy way to up your weight loss probability, you may want to get Glucomannan savvy.

Glucomannan is a soluble fiber. It is derived from the konjac plant.

Glucomannan has quietly been piling up research that suggests it can be an effective weight loss agent.

One study demonstrated that 2 to 4 grams per day of Glucomannan resulted in significant weight loss.

A recent study by the University of Connecticut, Storrs (zoocon) showed that the addition of exercise to a diet regimen including Glucomannan significantly improved body fat composition and HDL-C, and TC/HDL-C ratio.

In a study comparing Glucomannan to other fibers such as guar gum and alginate for weight loss, only glucomannan appeared to cause weight loss.

In summary, there is a lot of evidence mounting for Glucomannan as a possible weight loss supplement. Add to that it also helps with cholesterol and it’s worth a try.
