How it works
To learn how GlucoMatrix works for weight loss, we have to learn how glucomannan (its primary ingredient) affects your health and how it triggers slimming effects.
First off, glucomannan is a sugar made from the root of the konjac plant. Powder, capsules and tablets are used to make medicines out from this extract.
With high fiber content, glucomannan is used for constipation, weight loss, type 2 diabetes, blood sugar control and cholesterol reduction. But glucomannan is more famous for its ability to reduce weight.
According to the National Institute of Health, glucomannan was able to show significant mean weight loss over an 8-week period study in 20 obese volunteers, by taking 1gram of glucomannan extract for each meal per day.
Glucomannan is believed to work directly inside your stomach by absorbing water to form a bulky fiber which provides its many benefits. It helps suppress appetite by making you believe that you are still full, helps treat constipation, lowers your sugar and cholesterol levels and many others.
Interestingly, GlucoMatrix contains 3,000mg per tablet (3 grams per day, based on the study mentioned above). This means that you are getting the right and safe dosage of glucomannan that may help trigger weight loss for you.
But wait, GlucoMatrix is not just all about glucomannan, it also features other known weight loss agents. First, GlucoMatrix contains energy boosters in green tea and green coffee bean, fat blocker raspberry ketones and another appetite suppressant in African mango.
Directions of Use
Anglo Labs Ltd recommends that you take two tablets of GlucoMatrix before morning meal, another two before lunch and three before evening meal. GlucoMatrix is to be taken with liquid, 30 minutes before eating.
As you can see, you have to consume 7 capsules per day and three capsules before evening meal (which may affect your sleep due to caffeine). Seven capsules will give you high amounts of glucomannan although there are no known side effects for this herb as of this writing.
As mentioned above, it is wise if you consult your doctor first before you take GlucoMatrix.
