Health Benefits of Zero Slim & Healthy Noodles

WEIGHT LOSS – The efficacy of glucomannan fibre for weight loss relies on its ability to absorb up to twenty times its own weight in water. The glucomannan expands after ingestion, and this tends to promote a feeling of fullness as it travels through the digestive tract.

CONSTIPATION – Glucomannan fibre absorbs water, softens digestive contents and increases stool volume, relieving constipation.

HYPERGLYCEMIA & HYPOGLYCEMIA – Glucomannan fibre attracts water in the digestive system and becomes a gel, slowing digestive processes and trapping carbohydrates so that blood sugar levels are stabilized.

DIABETES – One benefit of glucomannan fibre is the ability to regulate blood sugar levels as seen in Type 2 Diabetes, where glucomannan an has shown potential to reduce blood glucose, insulin and serum lipid levels after meals, an effect that seems to be enhanced by glucomannan’s relatively high viscosity compared to other soluble fibers.

HIGH CHOLESTEROL – By attaching itself to bile acids in the digestive system and moving them out of the body, glucomannan can help lower cholesterol and reduce the amount of fat present in the blood.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE – As a corollary to glucomannan’s beneficial effect on cholesterol levels, one study has demonstrated a decrease in systolic blood pressure in healthy men after a four week course of glucoman¬nan supplements.

POSSIBLE ANTIDOTE TO FOOD POISONING – Glucomannan has itself been claimed to be something of an antidote to food poisoning. This claim originates from a single laboratory study in which 18 different food products were subjected to exposure to bacteria, including E. Coli and Salmonella, which were allowed to bind themselves to the products.

When the levels of bound bacteria were measured, the largest quantity were bound by sesame seed extract and konjac gum, leading to the tentative conclusion that glucomann may help to prevent bacteria from enter¬ing host cells. This claim awaits further confirmation, as the effect has not been studied in a clinical setting to date.
