Better intestinal mobilization. It has been verified in a clinical test blind person (with a duration of 10 days) who the Konjac glucommannan standardizes the intestinal movement in patients who suffer of chronic cold. In another experiment, patients who ingested between 3 and 4 daily grams of glucommannan reported to have between three and six depositions per week. These patients did not experience flatulences nor diarrhoea like effects collaterals. Anti-cancer potential. In a study fiber was administered and dust of glucommannan to old.
The results on the effects indicated a loss in the volume of bacteria and a greater amount of good bacteria, such as bifidobacterias. Higher levels of good bacteria mean a smaller amount of cancerigenic nitrosaminas, the proteins that according to are created cause to the cancer of liver and other types of cancer. One thought that this one was another positive effect of a greater peristalsis: the remainders of the body have less opportunities to attend the development of the cancer and other diseases. Aid to annul the effects of the diabetes. In a study in the long term realised in rats diabetics, thought that the fiber glucommannan she reduces the risk of cardiac attacks and ACVs.
The rats followed a cholesterol diet high, but they glucommannan was determining to prevent aortic plates, those fats that block the aorta and increase the potential to acquire cardiopathies. The fiber can obtain the same in people through a reduction of cholesterol LDL and the sugar in blood. Like other soluble fibers, glucommannan can adhere some particular nutrients and come up that they are absorbed by the body, reason why ingest I supplement vitaminic he is recommendable. If it is ingested in excessive amounts, the fiber can cause swelling, diarrhoea or flatulences. Frequently the problem is solved when reducing the consumed amount.
