What is Weight Away (glucomannan)?

Glucomannan (konjac fibre) is a naturally occurring soluble fibre derived from the root of the Konjac Plant (Amorphophallus konjac). It is the most viscous of all known dietary fibre and has been shown to contribute to a reduction in body weight when consumed as part of a calorie restricted diet.

Glucomannan aids weight loss by absorbing water in the digestive system creating a gel. This gel increases digestive transit time which in turn reduces appetite, leaving you feeling fuller for longer.

Each handy, raspberry flavoured Weight-Away sachet combines 1,000mg of glucomannan with 50mg green coffee extract. The green coffee in Healthspan Weight Away is low in caffeine (approx. 1mg per sachet) and has a standardised level of the active ingredient chlorogenic acid. Green coffee has been included to complement the beneficial actions of glucomannan.

Our nutrition experts recommend taking one sachet mixed with water, three times daily, 15 to 30 minutes before meals. A second glass of water should be consumed immediately after taking. For optimum effectiveness, glucomannan should be taken in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Got this for a friend, not me, he says it's fine, but if you leave it after you've made it up, before drinking, it forms a gel, which is rather gloopy, so you need to drink it immediately, and then follow with a large glass of water. He's giving it a go to boost his weight loss
