Table of contents
Konjac Extract (20:1) 631mg from HSNessentials is a dietary supplement in plant capsules made from 20:1 concentration extract from the Amorphophallus konjac plant bulb, standardised to 95% of polysaccharide glucomannan (600mg of glucomannan per capsule).
Konjac is a plant of the Araceae family, native to various regions of East and Southeast Asia. Its main chemical constituent is a linear, non-digestible polysaccharide, called glucomannan.
This product has been made from a vegetable extract of the Konjac plant, and is presented in plant capsules using ingredients of non-animal origin.
Konjac extract (20:1) 631mg is a product suitable for use in vegetarian and vegan diets.
Because today, in the Western diet, a large amount of refined cereals and very few fruits and vegetables are consumed, and this has led to reduced fibre consumption worldwide.
The high glucomannan content of our Konjac Extract product gives you a type of fibre which is very rare in foods typical of a Western diet, with a high solubility and an exceptional capacity to attract water.
Glucomannan is a type of soluble fibre, present in Amorphophallus konjac, with particular physico-chemical characteristics, and has been approved for:
- Contributing to maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels.1
- Contributing to weight loss in the context of an energy-restrictive diet2
Herbal extracts are concentrated presentations of plants that are developed in order to increase the density of nutrients that are naturally present.
Our Konjac extract has been obtained from the plant bulb, the area where it accumulates the highest density of glucomannan, which is the desired nutrient.
In addition, we present an extract of high concentration and maximum quality:
Nothing less than 2000% more concentrated than the plant's native bulb raw material!
Although herbal extracts concentrate plant nutrients to achieve all their effects without the need to use large amounts, they do not always achieve this.
Many companies that sell food supplements do not declare their content as active, this may be due to several reasons:
- They do not know the active amount, which denotes a low quality of the raw material used for the production of the product.
- They have used parts of the plant with low or no active content to reduce costs.
- They have used raw materials that have been treated aggressively and do not contain or have low amounts of nutrients.
A herbal extract should always reflect its content in the nutritional assets that interest us as consumers, so in our Konjac extract you will find:
That its concentration in glucomannan is no less than 95% of the total content of the product.
So you don't miss out on any of the effects of high-quality Konjac glucomannan!
Did you know that…
The most common practice of the food supplements market is to use gelatines to make the capsules?
Obviously, this is a problem! What about vegetarian people?
They can no longer make use of this supplement, although its content is suitable for vegans, the use of additives ruins the product for this population.
At HSN we have taken a step forward, and our capsules are suitable for vegans thanks to the replacement of the gelatine normally used with a derivative of vegetable cellulose.
Our Konjac Extract (20:1) 631mg is a product suitable for consumption by vegetarians and vegans.
Two vegetable capsules are equivalent to one serving, consume two servings a day before larger meals to reach a total amount of 4 capsules daily.
This product works great with products like:
- Chromium Picolinate 200mcg.
- L-Phenylalanine powder.
- Micronized glutamine powder (Kyowa Quality).
