Soluble fibers such as BioKonja™ offer many health-promoting benefits through their ability to form a soft gel with water. Research indicates that soluble fibers help reduce appetite, hunger sensations, reduce calorie intake, lower blood cholesterol and slow glucose absorption. While found in many sources such as fruits, vegetables, oats, and beans, the most-promising soluble fiber may come from BioKonja™. Derived from konjac root, BioKonja™ has an extraordinary water-holding capacity and is the most viscous of all known dietary fibers.

BioKonja™ offers benefits for those seeking to lose weight. Studies show that supplementing with BioKonja™ enhances the weight-loss effects of a calorie-restricted diet and consistent healthy weight loss. Even in the absence of a calorie-restricted diet when obese adults consumed 1 gram of BioKonja™ fiber one hour before each meal for eight weeks, they lost an average of 5.5 pounds of body weight—with no other changes to their eating or exercise patterns.

BioKonja™ creates a feeling of satiety or fullness through its water-binding effects. By creating a thick gel it delays gastric emptying and slows the release of sugar into the bloodstream, which helps to lower levels of insulin and blood glucose. Additionally, improving  blood-lipid profiles and can lower systolic blood pressure. Because of these effects it can greatly benefit individuals with metabolic syndrome or diabetes.

The supporting vitamins and minerals within BioKonja have been shown to contribute energy production and be essential to energy producing metabolic pathways in the body.  Energy production is the metabolism of glucose and therefore calories which uniquely means not only does BioKonja reduce the amount of calories taken in but also helps support the metabolism and speed at which calories are used.

Importantly all of the components of BioKonja have been individually assessed by EFSA the European Food Safety Authority, the clinical data to support each has been reviewed by EFSA experts and given “positive opinion”.  Taken at the recommended dosage BioKonja has been shown to be effective in weight management and even found to reduce blood cholesterol levels.

Delays gastric emptying –The viscous gel of BioKonja™ fibers slows down the rate of the food that goes from the stomach to the small intestine. This also promotes a feeling of satiety that can reduce food intake.
