So what do you know about your colon? If you don’t know much, keep reading! The colon is about six feet long and part of the body’s digestive system. Its job is to move waste material from the small intestine to the rectum. The small intestine sucks the nutrients out of what you eat and then pours the leftover waste into the cecum, then onto the colon for further processing.
The colon absorbs water from the waste while moving it toward the rectum. In the process, the colon may also absorb harmful materials. The longer it takes for waste to pass through the colon, the greater the chance of absorbing such materials. Foods rich in fiber help to regulate and expedite this important process.
Glucomannan is a gentle and effective natural soluble fiber that may support healthy colon function. It is a “bulk-forming laxative” which means it may help you produce stools that are easier to pass. Glucomannan may also support healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels already in the normal range.*
Glucomannan comes from the Konjac plant, an herb grown in Asia. It is usually ground into a powder, it can be taken in pill form or mixed with a liquid. Glucomannan is also believed to help support satiety.*
If you are concerned that you are not eating a diet rich in soluble fiber, you may want to consider glucomannan. Your colon may thank you!
