Beautifully Nourished's Weight Management
Beautifully Nourished’s Weight Management contains pure Glucomannan (konjac mannan), which in the context of an energy-restricted diet, can contribute to aiding weight loss.
Konjac Glucomannan is the only ingredient with an EFSA weight loss claim for Humans.
Glucomannan is a type of fibre found in the roots of the elephant yam, also called Konjac.
Key IngredientsKonjac Glucomannan: Konjac Glucomannan can promote weight loss results. Glucomannan absorbs water and becomes gel-like, promoting the feeling of fullness.
How it WorksKonjac Glucomannan is highly absorbent, binding to water to form a gel, promoting weight maintenance and weight loss by:
- Creating a sensation of fullness that can reduce appetite
- Delaying stomach emptying, keeping you feeling fuller for longer
- Breaking down carbohydrates more slowly, stabilising post-meal blood sugar levels and
- Decreasing fat absorption
Effectiveness: Three human studies showed that glucomannan, combined with a healthy diet, can help people lose 8-10 pounds (3.6-4.5 kg) of weight loss in five weeks (1).
Other Benefits: Glucomannan is a fibre that can feed the friendly bacteria in the intestine. It can also lower blood sugar, blood cholesterol and triglycerides, and is very effective against constipation (2), (3), (4).
Konjac Glucomannan for Weight Loss, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol: A 2008 systemic review found that konjac glucomannan may help lower total cholesterol, LDL (un-favourable cholesterol) and triglycerides. Researchers concluded that glucomannan could be a great therapy for people high cholesterol. A subsequent study found that konjac lowered LDL and recommended its use to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Konjac Glucomannan for Weight Loss and Fatigue: Konjac breaks down carbohydrates more slowly, stabilising post-meal blood sugar levels. As well as reducing body weight, Konjac can reduce fasting blood sugar levels, enabling you to remain energised throughout your weight loss journey.
Konjac Glucomannan for Weight Loss and Constipation: Research has shown that konjac glucomannan can ease constipation. This 2008 study showed that adding glucomannan to a low-fibre diet increased the amounts of probiotic bacteria in faeces and increased bowel movement function by 30%.
Konjac Glucomannan for Weight Loss Results: According to a 2005 study, adding a glucomannan fibre supplement to a balanced, 1,200-calorie diet caused more weight loss than a 1,200 calorie diet plus a placebo. Adding an additional fibre supplement (guar gum or alginate) did not have an impact.
Weight loss vs. Fat loss: Weight loss points to a reduction in the overall body weight, whereas fat loss refers to weight loss, specifically from losses in fat mass at different body parts. A reduction in body weight due to the loss of fat rather than muscle should be your priority if weight loss has been advised by your GP.
