Benefits of Glucomannan

5 Benefits of glucomannan you may not know

How much dietary fiber are you supposed to eat every day? 5 grams? 10 grams? Even 20 grams?

Actually, the answer is much higher. The Harvard School of Public Health reports everyone should eat 14 grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories consumed.[1] The average American consumes between 2,000 and 2,500 calories a day.[2] So, daily fiber intake needs to be 30 grams or more to meet recommended amounts. No wonder eating sufficient fiber is a struggle!

Glucomannan, a low-calorie fiber source, may be the solution to the fiber dilemma. Check out the many ways incorporating glucomannan into your diet increases overall health.
