Comments

Konjac is grown in Japan, and its bulky tuber contains glucomannan. This substance has the ability to absorb a hundred times its weight in water, and therefore forms a gel in the stomach, which acts as an appetite suppressant. For greater effectiveness and to keep this gel in the stomach, it is advisable to eat an apple or biscuit half an hour before the capsules are absorbed, to close the pylori at the base of the stomach.

The fiber richness of this plant facilitates intestinal transit, which is frequently disturbed in weight loss regimens. [Text source: “La nature vous veut du bien”, Guide de la Phytothérapie (translation: “Nature wants you well”, Phytotherapy Guide]
