Native to East Asia and used for over 1,500 years in the kitchen and for the production of medicine, Glucomannan is a natural, pure vegetable fibre, extracted from the konjac root. It is water-soluble and therefore perfectly suitable for absorption due to its strong expansion properties. In fact, it is capable of binding up to 50 times the amount of water in relation to its own weight.
It can thus ensure a reduced feeling of hunger and cravings and can contribute to weight loss as part of a low calorie diet. We deliberately refrain from adding other vitamins or minerals so as not to impair the pure effect of Glucomannan.
Glucomannan is the only ingredient officially allowed to be stated to contribute to weight loss as part of a low calorie diet, in accordance with the EU Regulation 432/2012 health claims.
