Hunger Reducer is a weight management product manufactured by She Supps.
The company specializes in supplements for women, but there is no reason why men could not take this product as well because the formulation is identical to that used for many similar products that are marketed towards men and women alike.
She Supps also make a diet product that targets fat loss – called unsurprisingly Fat Burners
What is Hunger Reducer and How Does it Work?
Hunger Reducer is an appetite suppressant. Products of this nature take away hunger pangs and make it easier for people to be satisfied with less food.
Appetite suppression can be achieved in a number of ways, but Hunger Reducer provides the desired hunger curbing effect by creating a sense of satiety within the stomach.
The only active ingredient is glucomannan. It’s form of natural fibre taken from the roots of a plant more commonly known as konjac, but occasionally known by many other names, including elephant yam.
Glucomannan is very absorbent and the hydration process causes the fibres to expand considerably. When this expansion process happens inside the stomach it creates a feeling of satiety that suppresses the appetite and reduces the desire for food.
Many claims are made for the health enhancing abilities of glucomannan, but most of them cannot be backed by sufficient scientific evidence. Two of them can. The Europeans Food Safety Authority (EFSA) evaluated the scientific data gathered from many of the most important studies that examined the abilities of glucomannan and confirmed the ingredient has the ability to help ensure healthy cholesterol levels and can also suppress the appetite and help people to reduce their body weight.
However, the panel of experts at the EFSA state glucomannan only works for weight loss if it is used in the correct way and point out 3g per day will be required.
This must be split into three 1g doses and each dose should be taken with 1-2 glasses of water. Furthermore, the timing of the doses is also important. Each dose should be taken before a meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and good results will only be obtained if glucomannan is used in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet.
Each (2 capsule) dose provides 1g of glucomannan.

Side Effects & Other Health Considerations
Glucomannan is not a problematic ingredient, but people who do not take the capsules with a sufficient supply of water may find they become constipated and/or experience stomach cramps. Glucomannan can also effect blood sugar levels, so diabetics will need to consult their doctor before using Hunger Reducer or any other product that contains the ingredient.
Hunger Reducer is not intended for women who are pregnant or nursing a child. People who are under a doctor’s care and/or using medication should always seek professional medical advice before using dietary supplements of any kind.
Hunger Reducer is available from the manufacturer’s website and a number of options are available. The first option is to buy a 10-capsule tester pack that costs £2.99.
The price sounds very reasonable but bearing in mind the recommended dose is six capsules per day, the tester pack wont even last for 48 hours. The second option is to buy a jar of 120 Hunger Reducer capsules for £21.99.
The jar is made of glass instead of plastic, so it’s durable and can be used again and again. Repeat customers, who have already purchased a jar, can buy a 120-capsule refill pack, that comes in a paper bag, and use it to re-stock their jar. The bags cost £18.99, so it’s a slight saving, and customers who buy the Hunger Reducer refill pack can feel satisfied they are doing their bit to help save the environment.
There is no money back guarantee, but a refund is offered for unopened bottles of Hunger Reducer if they are returned within 14 days.
The Bottom Line
Hunger Reducer contains a good appetite suppressing ingredient that has credentials (EFSA) that are second to none. It is also designed to be used in a manner that corresponds to the recommended usage guidelines.
In theory, Hunger Reducer should work well. However, the quality of the main ingredient is also important. If the glucomannan fibres have not been sourced from a quality supplier, or have been stored in an atmosphere that allowed them to partially hydrate, results will suffer.
Bearing this in mind, it would have been useful to see some customer reviews, but none are available. This is not a point in the product’s favour, especially when it is sold without a guarantee, so Hunger Reducer is unlikely make our list of top weight loss products any time soon.
