Description

Glucomannan is a natural, water-soluble dietary fiber extracted from the roots of the elephant yam, also known as konjac. It's available as a supplement, in drink mixes and is also added to food products, such as pasta and flour. It's also the main ingredient in shirataki noodles.

Since konjac is mostly made of water, it is low in calories, containing only about 7kcal per 100g. Furthermore, since glucomannan expands when it is mixed with water, it promotes a feeling of fullness. It is well known that konjac is beneficial for weight loss.

But the health benefits of konjac are not limited to weight loss. Dietary fiber boosts the activity of probiotic bacteria in the intestines and is thought to help maintain a healthy bowel. For this reason, konjac is expected not only to prevent skin problems but also reduce the risk of various diseases. It is also found to prevent increases in blood cholesterol.

Perhaps surprisingly, konjac helps prevent osteoporosis and high blood pressure. Konjac and cabbage contain the same amount—43mg per 100g—of calcium, a mineral that plays an essential role in the growth of bones. Furthermore, every 100g of konjac contains 33mg of potassium, a mineral that promotes the excretion of excess sodium (salt). Excess intake of salt is considered one of the causes of high blood pressure. While both the calcium and potassium contents are not very high, its low calorie content still makes konjac an outstanding food that can prevent osteoporosis and high blood pressure all the while minimizing calorie intake.
