Glucomannan Plus is a weight management supplement produced in England by Evolution Slimming. The company produces an impressive range of products and has an excellent reputation for producing supplements that work. They offer an unusually good level of customer service via online form and free phone telephone number and are well deserving of the high acclaim many customer place on the brand.
As the name suggests Glucomannan Plus relies on the ingredient glucomannan as the main weight loss provider. Glucomannan is immensely popular, thanks to a strong endorsements made by many leading authorities in the diet industry including one made on American TV by the weight loss expert and media personality, Dr Oz. Glucomannan is also one of just a few dietary ingredients that have been scientifically proven to work.
What is Glucomannan?
Glucomannan is a fibrous ingredient derived from the roots of the konjac plant (native to Asia).
How Does Glucomannan Assist Weight Loss?
Glucomannan assists weight loss by providing appetite suppression. It achieves this thanks to its ability to absorb unusually high quantities of fluid.
Supplements that contain glucomannan are generally consumed around half an hour before meals and must be taken with plenty of water (1-2 glasses). Once inside the stomach, the glucomannan fibres absorb the water quickly and expand. The presence of such a mass within the stomach causes a feeling of fullness that leaves a reduced amount of space available for food and make the supplement user feel too full to eat as much as normal.
Because glucomannan can affect the appetite in the way it does, its use enables dieters to lower their calorie intakes by a considerable amount. The body is then forced to start burning its stores of body fat to obtain extra energy. After one study the researchers concluded: “Glucomannan appears to beneficially affect total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, body weight, and FBG, but not HDL cholesterol or BP.”
Glucomannan Plus also contains green tea and chromium. Although chromium has a good reputation as a fat burner, the amount included is probably insufficient to contribute much of value. The green tea content is slightly higher though, and green tea has been proven to be an effective fat burner.
Each capsule provides:
- Glucomannan Powder (500mg)
- Green Tea Extract (50mg)
- Chromium (6μg)
Customer feedback is available and is highly suggestive of a product that works.
