Weight loss is not always easy, and long-term success requires dedication and perseverance. Countless supplements and diet plans are marketed as effective weight loss strategies, claiming to make things easier. One of them is called glucomannan, a natural dietary fibre promoted as an effective weight-loss supplement.
WHAT IS GLUCOMANNAN? - Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fibre, extracted from the roots of the elephant yam. It has gained considerable attention as a weight loss supplement.
HOW DOES IT AID WEIGHT LOSS? - Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fibre. Like other soluble fibres, it’s believed it promotes weight loss in several ways:
For weight loss, take a dosage of 1 gram, 3 times per day, before a meal.
OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS - Glucomannan can improve several important heart disease risk factors, including total cholesterol, “bad” LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and fasting blood sugar.
SIDE EFFECTS - Glucomannan is well tolerated and generally considered safe. However, if glucomannan expands before reaching the stomach, it may cause choking or blockage of the throat and oesophagus, the tube that moves food from your mouth to your stomach. To prevent this, it should be washed down with 1–2 glasses of water or another liquid.
Some people may experience mild side effects, such as bloating, flatulence, soft stools or diarrhoea, but these negative effects are uncommon.
Glucomannan can also reduce the absorption of oral medications like sulfonylurea, a diabetes drug. This can be avoided by taking the medication at least four hours after or one hour before ingesting glucomannan.
