Konjac Root Fiber Dense Glucomannan (100% Natural)
I read a few other reviews that said they did not dissolve but I gave it a try. They do not dissolve. I tried in water, vinegar which is like digestive enzymes in stomach, warm water, and lemon because of the acid. None of them dissolved even after hours. Glucomannan is a good product but does no good if the capsule will not dissolve. I opened capsules and poured in the water. I will finish the bottle that way but will not get this one again.

I take this in the morning with a smoothie. Helps me stay full until lunch. Great way to get some fiber in your diet.

Used for almost six months now for extra fiber. Very effective. Make sure to drink a full glass of water with the product.

Alternate with apple pectin
I use this in place of apple pectin so I don't get sensitive to any one fiber. It works very well for my purposes, taken at night it helps me to stay asleep.

I use this product as directed, 30 min before meals and I do feel full faster! It really does work!

Seems effective when taken with other supplements. I am fearful of taking any fiber that is not already suspended in water. I therefore take it by emptying a capsule or two into a couple ounces of water.

I saw this product discussed on an episode of THE DR. OZ SHOW in 2011, and I have been using it since. It serves two valuable functions, if used correctly: It promotes regularity AND satiation. I feel fuller when I eat smaller portions, and I am very regular. I take two capsules with a full glass of water every four hours. To me, it is safe, affordable, and beneficial. I will be using this product for the rest of my life.

I have been taking this for 2 weeks and I have no complaints. On the other hand, I can't judge it's benefits yet. I'll post an updated review after 30 days.

It's a good product
I learned about this product on Dr. OZ about 1.5 years ago. I really like the product. In the time I have taken it I have lost 10 pounds. I know its not a lot of weight but I have had a easy time maintaining the weight Im at. I stopped taking it for about a week and I could tell the difference. When Im on konjac root I feel better. It took about 3 months to feel the difference. I love it and will continue to take it.

Very good product!
This glucomannan product is a great value and does help in causing a full feeling before eating. For me, it is best to take 3 capsules about 15 minutes before eating with a full glass of water. I have seen some information that indicates to take 1 hour before eating. I think it would be best to perform trials by each individual as to what time would work best.

Good appetite suppressant
I take two capsules as directed before each meal. I do not eat as much and can control my caloric intake.

Great Source of Fiber
I have tried a few similar products but the Swanson Glucomannon is the most convenient and a great value. Other brands have huge horse pills that make me gag. These are easy to swallow, to bring along while traveling, and work well to add fiber to my diet.

No clue where all these reviewers were getting that the capsule doesn't dissolve. That's just not true! It's in a regular vegetable capsule and it dissolves great! I take one capsule before a meal with water and it fills me up. I haven't been hungry since using this product! Works great!!! LOVE IT!!!

I have been taking a couple of these capsules every day for more than a year. It is a very easy way to add fiber in to my diet in order to keep my total fiber intake up. The price is terrific. Very satisfied.

Its just OK
This does not supress my appetite very much.

Didn't work for me
Product did not do anything for me. This was my first purchase of this product and I did not notice any difference. I first used it as directed on the bottle, then tried more capsules. It was as if I hadn't taken anything at all. Maybe, like other reviewers have indicated, it does not dissolve well. I finished the whole bottle, only taking them as needed, but not daily.

Helps with hunger and helps to "fill you up" using natural products instead of chemical based substances.

Love this as just a fiber, works great and no side effects like bloating or discomfort for me. I just started it and have not noticed any other possible health benefits yet, but will review again after 3 months.

Helps supress appetite. Same as high price stuff you see on TV.

who can get enough fiber everyday? This is the best product I've ever tried. Plus it really helps with the ellimation process.It also makes you feel fuller longer.

I don't think these are working for me.
I take 3 a day and I don't see any difference. I don't know if I will keep taking them.

capsule does not disolve
After reading the previous review that the capsule does not disolve. ZI tested one by putting it a galss of water and it did not disolve even after 6 hours!

does not work
Took 2 with water before meals for several weeks. Did not curb appetite and did not help me lose weight. Only need to lose 5 pounds and was watching my food intake, but lost nothing.
