Has anybody ever taken this supplement? It's a dietary fiber source from the root of the konjac plant. It's used for weight loss but also helps with keeping insulin levels steady. Saw it on Dr. Oz and thought this might be a good thing but I don't know too much about it. I'm going to doing some research and post what I find.
Hope everyone is well - Have a great day yall!!

Howdy Lisa!
I learn something new every day here. No I have not even heard of this supplement. I looked on Google and found this article from WebMD here ~ http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ing...

Please check out the reviews page ( here ~ http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ing... ) of this substance to determine if it is something which you want to put into your body. There was at least one case of it causing intestinal bleeding in a young lady reported in 1 of the 21 the reviews I viewed. The 1 review which covered Hyperglycemia due to PCOS says it works for her. There were no reviews for Diabetes.

I pray that this is helpful to you.
