Never heard of it.  Since my guy has added extra flax to his meals ie: pancakes, mashed taters, he has lost weight.

if it is too good to be true, it generally is.  Just buy some fiber powder or fiber gummies and have it 30 minutes prior to your meal and it will fill you up faster thus you will eat a smaller portion than you normally would.

This product isn't a scam, as the person stated if it's too good to be true then it is, but this isn't. It actually has helped a lot of people lose weight and people that can't exercise due to health problems have lost weight on this product. Regular fiber will not provide you with the same results that Skinny Fiber will due to the other ingredients in the capsules.

#1- Regularity-The most common reason for the use of glucomannan fiber is to promote regularity. It has proven to be safe and effective for this purpose. The most common reason for chronic constipation is poor diet, so it makes sense that a dietary supplement can be a good option for most people. Harsh stimulant laxitives are usually not necessary.

#2- Cholester
ol-Glucomannan fiber lowers cholesterol by binding up excess bile acids and then excreating them from the body. It also may slow the absorption of cholesterol in some foods.

#3- Type 2 Diabetes-Glucomannan is a soluble fiber, when it is mixed with water it forms a gel. This gel absorbs sugar and starches which slows the bodies digestion of these carbohydrates. This helps to reduce blood sugar spikes. Diabetics have long been recommended to eat foods high in soluble fiber, these foods are referred to as having a low “Glycemic Index.”

#4- Weight Loss-This is not to say that glucomannan is the next “miracle diet food.” But there several glucomannan weight loss studies that have produced impressive results, and the reasons for this are quite simple. Fiber is bulk, it takes up space in the digestive tract and contributes to a sense of fullness. And since it controls blood sugar spikes, this controls insulin levels and reduces appetite.

#5- Promotes Probiotic Bacteria-Surely by now you’ve heard about the benefits of probiotics. Maybe you’ve heard the term “prebiotic” lately. Glucomannan is a prebiotic fiber. All prebiotics are is simply a soluble fiber supplement. Please don’t let them add to much mysticism to the subject, it’s really quite simple.

**So what do prebiotics do?
Prebiotics such as glucomannan act as a natural food source for our natural probiotic bacteria. While a probiotic supplement is always a good idea, why not help them multiply of their own. These “good bugs” are important because they prevent a state known as dsybiosis.

Dysbiosis is a state where our healthy intestinal organisms are compromised and then harmful organisms such as candida can move in.

**Why Glucomannan is Better than Psyllium?
The main reason why glucomannan is better than psyllium is because it is better tolerated by most people. Psyllium can cause abdominal pain and also allergic reactions though rare. And while it’s not related to wheat and contains no gluten, it is derived from a grain which is a problem for some people.

#1.... If the reason for chronic constipation is a poor diet, wouldn't the simple solution be to eat better?

#2..... Eating better will also help with cholestoral.

#3..... Yep, eating better will help here as well.

#4.....Yep, here too.

#5..... Probiotics would work just fine.

I am not here trying to convince you to take Skinny Fiber, I am telling others the benefits there is to taking it. Your own way is yours but there's people that eat right that still cant lose the weight. These are the facts that Skinny Fiber has helped people with.
