Konjac: Detailed information
Konjac (Amorphophallus konjac K. Koch) belongs to the Araceae family, and originates from southeast Asia. It is grown in south and southeastern China and Vietnam. Its flowers are produced on a dark purplish spathe, with a thick tuber that can grow up to 30 cm in diameter.
The dried and pulverised tuber is called konjac flour, from which konjac glucomannan1 is obtained.
Konjac has been used in China, Japan and East Asia as food. In China, a gel is prepared with konjac flour for detoxification, phlegm liquefaction and relieving circulatory problems. It has also traditionally been used in China for over 2,000 years for asthma, skin and blood disorders, burns and hernias2.
Konjac tuber is rich in glucomannan, a high-molecular-weight polysaccharide. It is a soluble fibre that readily mixes with water to form a high viscosity gel1.

Glucomannan is a soluble fibre that increases feelings of fullness and helps you lose weight. It is also used as a laxative and in cases of high blood lipid levels1. Glucomannan in the context of an energy restricted diet contributes to weight loss3.
To lose weight(1): 9 capsules a day, To lose weight(1): 9 capsules a day, divided into three doses: 3 capsules before breakfast, 3 before lunch and 3 before dinner, together with one or two glasses of water.

Glucomannan is effective in reducing weight and body fat4, 5. When ingested with liquid, the soluble fibre forms a viscous gel in the digestive system that slows gastric emptying and slows down the absorption of nutrients1, 2, which creates a feeling of fullness and helps control appetite and lose weight.
Various clinical studies have shown that consuming konjac glucomannan can lower blood cholesterol levels, improve intestinal transit, gut flora, and the metabolism of carbohydrates2.
Finally, konjac glucomannan also has antioxidant properties. One study established an increase in the synthesis of antioxidant enzymes in the liver and gut mucosa, due to the gene expression regulation mediated by this fibre6.
