Good weight loss aid

I used this product with the hope that it would assist me with weight loss. I drank half a teaspoon in a glass of water 15 min before a meal and I lost 3kg with the packet. It also doesn have an unpleasant taste. Also a great source of fibre. Will definitely consider using it again in the future.
What an awesome product

I really like the glucomannan. Excellent to thicken souces and add to stews. Also use this in my smoothies...this is only the beginning.
