LuraLean Konjac (Propolmannan) vs Lipozene (Glucomannan) - Control Weight Loss Support - Page 2
This is authentic Konjac as .

by Dusty R. Green, M.Ed.

The main ingredient in Lipozene is glucomannan.  It is a a fiber derived from konjac root and has been found in the scientific literature to be beneficial in weight loss control support and other positive side effects.  However, glucomannan has been shown to be inferior to its brother, propolmannan.  Propolmannan is much more effective than typical glucomannan that is found in Lipozene and many other supplement products throughout the world.

Glucomannan fiber acts as an appetite suppressant by producing the feeling of fullness or being satiated.  When used as recommended, this fiber can lower calorie consumption supporting the control of weight loss.  In addition, it can help with bowel movement control along with reducing the rate of carbohydrate absorption.  Also, there is documentation showing that it consistently lowers after-meal elevations in blood glucose, triglyceride, and LDL levels virtually side effects free.


Is Propolmannan Supercharged Glucomannan?
Konjac glucomannan does not yield the high quality material that makes konjac propolmannan so effective.  Propolmannan is a polysaccharide fiber derived from a plant (Amorphophallus Japonica) that grows only in the remote mountains of Northern Japan.  Propolmannan is patented in 33 countries as a purified fiber that does not break down in the digestive tract.  The Life Extension Foundation in association with Shimizu Chemical Corporation uses technology to reduce the propolmannan to a specific particle size that maximizes density while remaining in a productive viscous form.  It has the  highest molecular weight of any water-soluble fiber in the natural world making it very difficult for Lipozene or any other glucomannan supplement to compare in aiding with weight loss control.

With the above taken into account, Lipozene.com has other issues:

  • There are a lot of adverse customer critiques that can be located throughout the Internet -- consumer reviews are not very kind,
  • Their parent firm might automatically place additional fees on customers credit cards,
  • Their website recommends you take two capsules of Lipozene three times a day.  At that rate, a one-month supply will cost $90.

The graphs at the bottom of Shimizu's website shows the difference between various forms of fiber and propolmannan, called PROPOL.  As stated on their website, "The Amorphophallus Japonica tubers are first pulverized and then collected.  Amorphophallus Japonica mannan-glucose particles are polished in order to dislodge and extract noxious materials adhering to them.  This process yields a refined, high performance Amorphophallus Japonica mannan-glucose with a high degree of purity that improves product solubility, stability and overall functionality."

The Bottom Line:

  • Konjac root fiber (Luralean) called propolmannan is virtually side effects free,
  • It is superior to Lipozene or any other form of glucomannan supplement that supports weight loss control,
  • A bottle of Lipozene contains 60 capsules,
  • A bottle of Konjac root fiber (Luralean) contains 120 vegetarian capsules,
  • You don't get caught-up in the automatic monthly credit card charges that are associated with Lipozene.com,
  • Konjac root fiber (LuraLean) called propolmannan saves you money!
