Glucomannan is a soluble, bulk-forming fiber derived from Konjac Root (Amorphophallus konjac). Clinical studies have demonstrated that Glucomannan can provide temporary relief of constipation and may help to maintain serum lipid levels already within the healthy range. In addition, because Glucomannan helps to promote satiety (feeling of fullness), it can be an effective addition to a weight management plan that includes a healthy diet and exercise program.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/2 level teaspoon (2 g) daily with at least 8 oz of water 30 - 45 minutes before a meal.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I started using glucomannan around 2 weeks ago, believing that as it was a natual fibre it was safe. I even wrote a positive review. This last week I started to notice I felt tired and developed a very itchy rash on my scalp, which was driving me crazy, and also tingling in my upper body. I didn't at first connect taking glucomannan with the symptoms. It was only after I checked online about possible side effects that I found this. I stopped using it immediately and all itching etc went away within a day:- •Potential side effects include breathing problems, chest tightness, hives, rash and swelling. Glucomannan has also gotten lodged in the throat of some users. Stop taking the supplement if you experience any symptoms and contact your doctor.
I've been using it for over a year. Terrific product that wards off sugar spikes. Add half a teaspoon to any kind of drink (I personally prefer stinging nettle tea) and immediately stir in three or four drops of liquid stevia. Wait three minutes and the drink will thicken to the texture of a milk shake. As a semi-solid, it's easier to ingest using a spoon. Once the pasty glucomannan enters your stomach and lines the walls, it becomes a barrier that prevents a rapid breakdown of simple starches (like breads and pastries) into sugar and slows absorption of sugar into the blood stream. Graphically your sugar spikes will stop looking like icicles and start looking like soft, rolling putting greens.

with only a tea spoon you can take a day's fiber. if you are good with psylium husk, this is the better way

I use this instead of flour or cornstarch to make gravy and sauces. It has NO calories. If you use a little it goes a long way.

Maybe this was too much fiber added to my diet, because it upset my tummy. I switched to a less concentrated fiber and prefer that.

I use glucomannan powder for everything that I would normally use cornstarch for. Ie thicken stews, stir fry, gravy. It is not quite as tasty as cornstarch, but it still works well. It is also good in thick shakes, like the THM chocolate frappe. At this point in my cooking life, this is a necessary kitchen ingredient.
