What is Glucomannan Plus and how does it Work
The primary benefit the capsules offer it appetite suppression.
Appetite suppressing supplements are generally favoured by people who are trying to stick to a calorie controlled diet, but need a little extra help to keep on fighting against the desire for food.
Glucomannan Plus also contains a couple of supportive ingredients (green tea + chromium) that should help improve weight loss results by providing fat burning benefits as well.
One capsule contains three active ingredients:
- Glucomannan Powder (500mg): A fibrous ingredient that is taken from the roots of the Asian konjac plant. It has the ability to absorb large amounts of water, which cause the fibers to expand inside the stomach and create a feeling of fullness that dulls the appetite. Glucomannan also delays gastric emptying (helps balance blood sugar levels), improves colonic health, and can be useful for treating constipation. The weight loss-enhancing abilities of the ingredient have been proven in time and time again and, 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.”
- Green Tea Extract (50mg): Green tea catechins can improve overall wellbeing and are particularly useful for speeding up the metabolism and initiating thermogenic fat burning. After one 12-week study, conducted at the Khon Kaen University in Thailand, the results obtained from the 60 volunteers showed supplementation with green tea could significantly increase weight loss. The researchers concluded: “Green tea can reduce body weight in obese Thai subjects by increasing energy expenditure and fat oxidation.”
- Chromium (6μg): A popular fat burning ingredient that has been favoured by supplement manufacturers for over 60 years. It is also believed to help curb hunger cravings and balance blood sugar levels.
Customer feedback is very good.

Side Effects & Health Issues
Side effects are unlikely, but pregnant or breastfeeding mothers should not consume any form of dietary supplement without first discussing the matter with their GP. The same advice is offered to anyone who is taking medication or has existing health issues.

The Bottom Line
Glucomannan is a powerful appetite suppressant that has been proven to provide weight loss. The addition of green tea and chromium should help trigger fat burning and enable the user to burn extra fat and calories, so it is hard to fault Glucomannan Plus as a weight loss aid. Given the experience and reputation of the manufacturer though, this is not surprising.
The high fiber nature of glucomannan should also help control cholesterol level and may be useful for diabetics who are trying to control blood sugar levels. However, we feel a doctor is the best person to advise on this, and restrict our comments to how Glucomannan Plus is likely to perform as a weight loss supplement. In this regard it gets our full and complete endorsement.
