Propolmannan is a highly purified, patented, natural dietary fibre.
It comes from Amorphophallus konjac, a rare tuberous plant found only in the mountains of northern Japan.
As part of the digestive process, dietary fibres - the only substances not broken down and digested by digestive enzymes - travel to the colon and are excreted without having been absorbed by the body.
¤ Propolmannan is a water-soluble fibre with a particularly high molecular weight.
Using highly specialised technology, it has been reduced to particle size, maximising its density while maintaining a desirable viscosity.
A 500 mg capsule of Propolmannan contains significantly more fibre than the same amount from any other plant.
The enzymes it contains naturally, which would otherwise cause it to break down during digestion, have been removed ¤ Because of its high molecular weight, particle size and viscous structure, Propolmannan passes intact through the entire digestive tract.
Its unique, sponge-like structure acts in different ways to prevent excess calories from entering the bloodstream.
¤ Propolmannan : - by absorbing water and quickly expanding in the stomach, makes you feel fuller faster; - by preventing the breakdown and assimilation of dietary fats by “absorbing” bile acids in the small intestine, transports them safely out of the body; - by slowing the rapid emptying of food from the stomach into the small intestine, reduces the after-meal glucose spike that would normally occur.
¤ Propolmannane therefore forms a stable, viscous barrier which slows down the normal, digestive processes intrinsic to body fat storage.
¤ More than 100 studies, including placebo-controlled trials, confirm that Propolmannan can lead to moderate weight loss by reducing the rate of carbohydrate absorption and by markedly lowering post-meal elevations in blood glucose, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol.
In this way, it helps reduce body fat and abdominal fat mass.
Propolmannan improves metabolism, boosts intestinal health and the immune system.
Taken before the two main meals of the day, Propolmannan can help combat age-related metabolic changes and constitutes an important element of any weight management programme.
