Helps lower cholesterol levels.
450g | 120 vegetarian capsules
This has really helped me lower the ‘bad’ and elevate the ‘good’ cholesterol. I took it for about 5 months before I was retested and could see the results. -Merry
Konjac root (glucomannan) helps lower cholesterol levels by reducing absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. A systemic analysis revealed that the use of glucomannan (konjac root) had significant beneficial effects on total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as body weight and fasting blood glucose.
Konjac root also has the ability to expand 17 times in size, creating a feeling of fullness thereby encouraging weight loss.
Konjac root is particularly useful for reducing the glycemic index of foods, which refers to how quickly a carbohydrate is metabolized by the body. Taken with food, konjac root/glucomannan effectively slows the release of sugars in food, allowing the body more time to burn the calories they contain off as energy instead of storing them as body fat. Konjac root’s fibre has a low-calorie content but is very high in fibre. Similar to many vegetables, this combination helps promote a healthy waistline.
RECOMMENDED USE OR PURPOSE: Helps to lower cholesterol levels (by reducing absorption from the gastrointestinal tract).
