Weight Management: Soluble fibre helps slow the rate of digestion, promoting satiety, digestive health, nutrient absorption and healthy glycemic control. It enhances satiety by absorbing water and adding bulk in the digestive tract. Research has revealed that the high molecular weight and viscosity of glucomannan is particularly supportive. In an 8-week double blind trial, glucomannan provided statistically significant
support for weight management in volunteers. Several randomized controlled trials indicate that glucomannan supports healthy lipid metabolism and promotes healthy glycemic control.
GI Health: Both soluble and insoluble fibres promote GI motility and regularity, supporting healthy bowel
movements and softer stools by adding bulk. Studies with glucomannan, Sunfiber® partially hydrolyzed guar gum, flaxseed and rice bran indicate that these fibres promote abdominal comfort, GI motility and bowel regularity while being well-tolerated. Furthermore, soluble fibre is fermented in the large intestines by intestinal microflora, producing short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs are important energy sources for the colon and have protective effects for healthy colon cell function. SCFAs also keep the intestinal environment acidic, providing optimal conditions for lactobacillus and other beneficial bacteria to thrive.
Detoxification: Fibre also helps to collect and eliminate waste and toxins from the intestinal walls, minimizing the amount of exposure of the GI tract to toxins. Research suggests that flax seed fibre supports colon cell health in part by promoting healthy beta-glucuronidase activity and detoxification. High fibre diets also increase fecal elimination of bile acids to support healthy lipid excretion. Several randomized controlled trials indicate that glucomannan supports healthy lipid metabolism in this way.
