      Glucomannan helps prevent weight gain and helps you lose it! Not only is Glucomannan an excellent source of fiber but also is an excellent product that prevents carbs from being absorbed by the body. When taken WITH or 'immediately following' a meal containing carbs, it flushes those 'carbs' out of the body, therefore does not allow time for the carbs to be absorbed. In addition, Glucomannan suppresses your appetite! (Great things come in 3's)! I've always been a serious healthnut thus am always researching things related to health, nutrition, and exercise. Two months ago, I bought this product for my husband who needed to lose about 25 pounds. Belly fat is the most-dangerous fat because it is linked to all kinds of disease and cancers. For the last A Vitamin Shoppe Customer months, my husband has been taking A Vitamin Shoppe Customer capsules of Glucomannan (aka konjac root) a day (with each meal and with an 8-oz glass of water)...and has lost 16 pounds. I'm so proud of him (and Glucomannan)! Imagine how much he'd lose if he changed his diet and exercised too--HA! And, because I, personally, don't want to gain any weight, (now being in my 50's, in menopause, and still wearing size 2 clothing), I take Glucomannan whenever I eat 'bad carbs.' It prevents my body from absorbing them. Because the capsule is big and is a fiber supplement, it's crucial to take it with an 8-oz glass of water!!! When you get ALL A Vitamin Shoppe Customer BENEFITS of Glucomannan for such a small price, this is a steal! Many, many thanks, VS

      Have had this product for a few days. It says to take 3 capsules 1/2 hour before meal. I wanted to start slowly and work my way up to 3 capsules to see how my stomach would handle this product. I took one capsule 1/2 hour before breakfast, made sure I drank my water and my stomach seemed ok. I took two capsules 1/2 hour before lunch, again made sure I drank my water and a few hours later I am bloated and have horrible gas. Before I just gave up on this product I wanted to give it another try so I tried again the next day and got the same results. Unfortunately I am not able to continue to take this product.

        Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Glucomannan - 100 Capsules:

        I bought this product as an appetite suppressant. I think it did give me the full feeling, however, it also gave me a side affect of having gas. I already had a problem with this (I don't have IBS) because I have a sensitive stomach. This product intensified it and I wouldn't feel comfortable continuing to take it because I am not quite sure when a gas outbreak will occur.

          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Glucomannan - 100 Capsules:

          I have recently discovered glucomannan (and shirataki noodles) and am in LOVE with the substance. However, this specific product just doesn't behave as expected. I usually mix about 1.5 tsp with 1 cup of liquid (e.g. almond milk or lemonade, etc) and let sit for about 10 minutes to make a nice thick pudding or dessert... but this stuff I added 2-3 teaspoons to the same amount of liquid, and it never really gelled into anything more than a slightly thicker liquid, even after sitting overnight and heating. It was also very difficult to dissolve/blend. For those of you who tried this product and wrote off glucomannan, don't!! try it again!! Just not this particular brand!

              Follow directions to a T. Helps you feel fuller so you eat less. I have carefully combined this with several other Vitamin Shop products (Phase 2 and Pysillium caps)for 10 days now and have lost about 6 pounds. I have continued my previous daily walking (about 1.5 miles)and suffer few if any side effects. Definitely worth a try, especially for us seniors whose metabolism had slowed down but appetites have not. Yes the capsules are all large but not a problem if you use a glass of water.

                  I had my reservations about this product, but after a few days of using it, I can definitely say that it works (in a sense). I cannot get through a meal without feeling very full. Food that I could normally eat, now once I get about half way through, I'm DONE! I was really surprised, but happy that it worked. Haven't seen the pounds fall off, but if I'm only eating half of what I normally would, it's just a matter of time before I see results...

                      Works great! You do have to drink at least 8oz of water with it to get the full effect, but as long as you do it will curve your wanting to eat! Havent lost any weight yet, but curves the bordem eating.This is also known as the "skinny Fiber" that cost way more. This is a better option if your trying to save $

                            I only take one before a meal. It helps control your appetite, no kidding. The pills are large so drink before you take pill to get your mouth and throat wet. Lots and lots of water. I actually take 3 20 oz glasses of water. It works, lost on average 4 lbs a week. Good Luck.
                            It works.

                                i take 3 caps 2-3 times a day and it helps to feel fuller faster.
                                also, if i'm hungry but not able to eat, these and some water can help me get by for a few hours until i have a chance to eat. so good for traveling or long work days.
                                there's another brand with a little green tea extract that i like a little better, but i can't take those at night because they keep me up, so these are great any time.
                                can even take with a meal. i just order less than normal, and take them with the meal and soon enough i am full and happy.

                                    I went to Vitamin Shoppe and asked the manager what appetite suppressant might work for me. I had tried Green Coffee extract and it sucked. He recommended this as a healthy, effective choice. I have started taking the recommended 3 capsules prior to meals with a glass of water. Well, at breakfast and lunch I was still too hungry so I thought maybe it didn't work/was a waste of money. However---I had a super light dinner (1/2 a sandwich as I am trying to eat light dinners and heavier lunches). THIS STUFF WORKS! I have been bad at keeping to this new 'diet'...but I felt 'full' and I slept great WITHOUT THE USUAL HUNGER THAT MAKES ME SCREW UP MY DIET! Today is only day 2 for me, but I'm not starving despite drastically eating less! I will write an update soon.

                                      For those that said it doesn't work, you may want to watch what your eating and do some exercise for a change. Insanity is doing the same things, thinking you're going to get the same result! This isn't a magic pill to help you lose weight, it's a pill to help you control your eating habits. I've been working out for over 20 years, but started gaining weight during my 40's, because I drank and ate all the wrong foods. Noted: if you're putting in more then you're putting out, it defeats the purpose, so eat less and work out more! As you age, things will change and that means your metabolism. This was recommended to me by the manager at our local Vitamin Shoppe and I truly appreciate his help. At times I crave for sugar, so that has kept me from losing the last 15lbs. I've lost 15 by eating low carb, but need to lose 15 more. Had I not worked out for over 20 years and ate right for the most part, I would've gained more. If you think you can eat what you want and not exercise, you're sadly mistaken! Take this, eat low carb, exercise and you won't be disappointed!

                                          Taking 2 caps 3 times daily before meals helps to feel full faster, sometimes can make your stomach feel a little funny, no big deal.
                                          IF you are on insulin or other anti-diabetic meds be careful, this slows how carbs/sugar are absorbed, so it can make you hypoglycemic(low blood sugar)

                                            If you've decided to commit to a healthy diet, this could help you a lot with portion control. Taken before meals with a big glass of water, if you make good food choices and eat your meals slowly you'll notice a change. You will feel full with less food, and you'll snack less. I agree the pills are pretty big - that's the only reason I dropped off a star.

                                            Now, if you have no desire to work on the mental piece of your healthy diet (emotional eating, lack of self control with portions), or if you're just looking for a pill to pop but continue to eat potato chips and drink soda all day - your results will reflect that. It only works if you do.

                                                  Very disappointed with the product. After reading the reviews I thought I could try this product. Went to the store , employee working there told me to take it with a fiber pill as well which I also purchased and after spending over $50 and a month on the products I did not have no results at all! Actually put three pounds on and I am not recommending this product.

                                                  I take this product to aid in weight loss by eating less. I also take it for the fiber benefits. It does help but you have to be diligent about taking three of the somewhat large capsules before each and every meal, which I cannot seem to remember at this point. I will buy one more bottle to give myself a chance to get into the habit of taking this.

                                                    After making all diet and activity changes I could, with no lowering of my B/S levels, and metformin gave me terrible side effects, I tried glucomannan as an act of desperation without a glimmer of hope that it could help. To my great amazement, from day one, it helped keep my blood sugars in a good range.
                                                    A1c went from 6.2 to 5.8 after taking it for 4 months. Yeah!!

                                                      I am an avid herbalist and always look up the ingredients in these high priced come-ons that are all over the TV. I am starting a life change diet and thought the appetite curbing might help my resolve. I take as directed before meals and have found I am satisfied with much less food than ususal. Also it calms my hunger so that I can make the healthier choices and not "grazing" while I am preparing the meal. I know herbs can be hit or miss with individuals but I am ordering enough to last me through my target weight loss!
                                                      The only comment is that you MUST drink a full 8-10 ozs of liquid to get the desired result. Some say it might be just the water but I can attest to the fact that it is the fiber, not the water.

                                                          I have battled for years with irregularity. I thought my digestive system was on strike most of my life. Dr. Oz suggested this product, and although I was skeptical, this stuff is amazing! It took about a month to really see the full difference but now I can't imagine life without it! I take 3 capsules every morning about 30 min before breakfast. My digestive system has shown up DAILY since!

                                                              I love this product, it's very effective. The only complain I have is that the capsule is huge and difficult to swallow. Otherwise, the product is really helping!!

                                                              I bought this product when I read all the reviews about it helping to curb appitites, unfortunately it does not work for me. I take the recommended dosage but don't feel any different and am not affected when I eat. I eat just as much as when as when I don't take it. I know this product is not ment to help with weight loss but because of all the reviews I figured I would give it a try.

Not sure how it works, but will keep taking it to see if it will make a difference. Others say it curbs appetite, but I haven't noticed any difference. Will check back in after a few weeks and see how it works.

                                                                      Glucomannan helps prevent weight gain and helps you lose it! Not only is Glucomannan an excellent source of fiber but also is an excellent product that prevents carbs from being absorbed by the body. When taken WITH or 'immediately following' a meal containing carbs, it flushes those 'carbs' out of the body, therefore does not allow time for the carbs to be absorbed. In addition, Glucomannan suppresses your appetite! (Great things come in 3's)! I've always been a serious healthnut thus am always researching things related to health, nutrition, and exercise. Two months ago, I bought this product for my husband who needed to lose about 25 pounds. Belly fat is the most-dangerous fat because it is linked to all kinds of disease and cancers. For the last A Vitamin Shoppe Customer months, my husband has been taking A Vitamin Shoppe Customer capsules of Glucomannan (aka konjac root) a day (with each meal and with an 8-oz glass of water)...and has lost 16 pounds. I'm so proud of him (and Glucomannan)! Imagine how much he'd lose if he changed his diet and exercised too--HA! And, because I, personally, don't want to gain any weight, (now being in my 50's, in menopause, and still wearing size 2 clothing), I take Glucomannan whenever I eat 'bad carbs.' It prevents my body from absorbing them. Because the capsule is big and is a fiber supplement, it's crucial to take it with an 8-oz glass of water!!! When you get ALL A Vitamin Shoppe Customer BENEFITS of Glucomannan for such a small price, this is a steal! Many, many thanks, VS

I recently purchase this product because I was having a difficult time at night, possibly b/c the kids are on vacation which leads to going to bed late, which equals eating late. This product fills you up and if am not mistaken has given me more energy than i need, I believe it is assisting in the area of turning those sugars into energy. Great Product!!!! I don't need to loose any more weight but since on Glucomannan in one week I've lost 3pounds, putting me under my goal weight.

In addition to the benefit of decreasing my cholesterol, it also regulated my blood sugar so that I was not having those sugar lows 2 hours after eating. I take two with each meal and out of all the products I started, this is the one I cannot live without. Also, VS is the best value for glucomannan.

I do not eat 3 times a day so use these if you want to eat less and feel full.

The konjac root is a natural fiber that expands, so there is less room in your belly. Meaning if your stomach is already full, you should eat less. If overeating is your issue AND you can remember to take it 30 minutes before you eat, this will probably help.

                                                                                              Although I never lost more than a couple of pounds using this product alone. I can tell you, it does help with eliminating some of that "belly pooch" that women tend to get. I expect that is the "fiber" aspect. You will become very regular. Also, please remember to drink lots of water with this product. You need it to ensure this passes through your body. I have read reviews of people becoming ill and having a difficult time with it. I think because they were not drinking enough water. I never had any difficulty.

                                                                                              Good luck with your weight loss efforts!

You may want to ask a doctor or just google that question and see what you can come up with. But my experience is that it fills you up. I break open a capsule or two in my smoothie and use it as a filler. But hurry and drink because it practically turns to gelatin if it sits too long.
