Konjac glucomannan powder is a dietary fiber. It is usually made from the root of the konjac plant. Glucommanan powder, capsules, and tablets are used as medicine.
Glucomannan konjac powder is used for constipation, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Some people take glucomannan by mouth for high blood pressure, obesity, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these other uses of glucomannan.
In foods, glucomannan is used as a thickener or gelling agent. It is also included in food as a dietary fiber.

Glucomannan is also believed to promote weight loss, slow the aging process, and even fight certain forms of cancer. Some of these claims are better supported by research than others. Here is a look at some of the key findings:
Konjac glucomannan powder may help keep cholesterol levels in check, suggests a 2008 review of studies published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Based on a review of 14 clinical trials, glucomannan appeared to lower total cholesterol and "bad" low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. On the other hand, it did nothing to improve "good" high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol or blood pressure.
The quality of reviewed studies was moderate to poor. Further research is needed to establish whether glucomannan is a safe and viable treatment option for hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol).
Soluble fiber of any sort can help maintain or improve digestion. Most health authorities recommend a total dietary fiber intake of 25 to 30 grams per day with about one-fourth—6 to 8 grams—coming from soluble fiber. Glucomannan konjac powder is a reasonable option, particularly if you have chronic constipation. It also appears to be safe for short-term use in children and pregnant women.
A 2018 study in the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care reported that glucomannan was more effective in relieving constipation than magnesium hydroxide (used in Mylanta and Milk of Magnesia) during the third trimester of pregnancy.
There is some contention as to whether the metabolic effects of konjac glucomannan powder translate to weight loss. The results of clinical studies have been largely mixed. A 2005 review of studies published in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine concluded that glucomannan supplements, taken in 2- to 4-gram daily doses, increased weight loss in overweight or obese adults.5 The loss was mainly attributed to premature satiation (the feeling of fullness following the consumption of certain foods).Recent studies have not drawn similar conclusions.
Contrary to popular belief, glucomannan konjac powder has less impact on blood sugar levels than expected. This is surprising given that glucomannan passes through the intestines largely intact and can absorb up to 50 times its weight in water.
