Sugar-reducing And Fat-reducing Ingredients - The Magic Konjac
Konjac, also known as grinding taro, konjac, and konjac, is the tuber of the perennial perennial herb of the Araceae family.
Studies have shown that patients with type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance can reduce fasting blood sugar and 2-hour postprandial blood sugar after eating a prescribed dose of konjac food every day for 1 month or more.
2. Fat lowering
Studies have shown that konjac can reduce serum total cholesterol and triglyceride levels and increase high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, which has important prevention and treatment significance for hyperlipidemia.
3. Lose weight
Konjac itself has low calorie, high relative molecular mass and high viscosity. It absorbs water and swells to give a feeling of fullness, which can delay the passage of food from the stomach to the small intestine; reduce the absorption of monosaccharides, reduce the synthesis ability of fatty acids, and can moisten the intestines and defecate , so that some of the unabsorbed nutrients are excreted with the feces, and play a role in weight loss.
The konjac polysaccharide contained in konjac has extremely strong water absorption, can absorb water and expand 80 to 100 times, which can increase the water content of feces and soften the feces. In addition, konjac polysaccharide has gel properties, cohesive properties, and can form a viscous sol, which has a moisturizing effect and can reduce the reabsorption of harmful substances in the intestinal tract. In addition, konjac oligosaccharides can proliferate a large number of bifidobacteria in the large intestine. Bifidobacterium is a non-toxic flora, has obvious immunomodulatory effect, produces short-chain fatty acids to stimulate intestinal peristalsis, quickly excrete carcinogenic deoxycholic acid, lithocholic acid mutant allogeneic substances and other wastes, and remove stool.
