Comments about NOW Foods Glucomannan 100% Pure Powder from Konjac Root, 8 oz:

This is the very same stuff, minus the inactive ingredients they add, that Roca Labs is trying to rip off the public for $480.00 as their "non-surgical gastric bypass." Obviously, it can be purchased here for A LOT less. Their claim that this product is tantamount to non-surgical gastric bypass is a bit of a radical statement, but they are not altogether lying. Glucomannan DOES expand quite a lot (it's fun to watch in a glass of water!) and if you take enough of it, it could provide a feeling of fullness. How long that fullness lasts, I don't know. That's the catch.

There is no flavor to the powder, so it isn't really hard to eat, it's just a bit boring. Like unflavored Jello.

Rather than putting the powder in your mouth and then swallowing it with water, I would recommend putting the powder into a tall glass of sugar-free flavored water, or whatever other clear sugar-free liquid you choose, letting it expand, and then eating it with a spoon to avoid it expanding in your throat, which could be dangerous.

It's worth a try for weight loss and it is a natural fiber, so even if you don't lose weight, it's good for your body.
