Konjac and cholesterol
- Dec 20, 2018 -


A 2008 systematic review found that konjac may help lower total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Konjac also reduced body weight and fasting blood sugar. Researchers concluded that glucomannan could be an adjuvant therapy for people with diabetes and high cholesterol. A later study found that konjac lowered LDL and recommended its use to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
