Glucomannan for Weight Loss
Glucomannan is a type of vegetable fiber that can be used for a number of reasons, such as to relieve constipation, lower cholesterol, aid in weight loss, and lower blood sugar.
Because fiber slows the emptying of the stomach, it can help people feel fuller longer. This is probably how glucomannan fiber helps with weight loss. Small studies have suggested that this product may be effective for weight loss; however, more research is still needed.
