    Konjac, Glucomannan


    Yo, I was wondering has anyone has tried glucomannan (Konjac root) as a dietary supplement? How did it work out for you?

    It works well as a thickening agent. It makes whatever liquid you put it in gelatinous (sort of like jello before it sets). Don't remember noticing much in terms of appetite suppression though. But I was eating very low cals at the time, so it's hard to judge.

    I took glucomannan capsules by Now for a while and it didn't do squat in terms of appetite suppression and blood sugar regulation so I dropped it. It's cheap enough so go ahead and try for yourself...
