Glucomannan + Chromium Konjac root extract capsules from Unimedica are high-dose with 4200 mg glucomannan and 100 µg chromium per daily dose (6 capsules). The daily dose covers the daily needs of an adult (percentage of nutrient reference values according to regulation (EU) 1169 / 2011) for chromium to the level of 250 %.
The so-called konjac root belongs to the Araceae family and comes from the tropics and sub-tropics. It is relatively rich in protein and consists above all of fibre, making it especially valuable for low-calorie and low-carbohydrate nutrition. Now popular as low-carb food, shirataki noodles, for example, are made from ground konjac root in Asia.
Konjac root also contains glucomannan, which - in sufficient amounts – helps achieve a normal cholesterol level (from 4 g per day) and supports weight reduction as part of low-calorie nutrition (from 3 g per day).
Glucomannan + Chromium Konjac root extract capsules from Unimedica also provide the body with chromium, which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood sugar and supports the metabolism of macronutrients. Each bottle contains 180 capsules.

SPECTRUM OF ACTION
(Health claims permitted by the European Food Safety Authority)
Glucomannan (konjac mannan) contributes from an intake of 4 g per day to:
- Maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels
- Weight loss in the context of an energy-restricted diet
The beneficial effect for weight loss is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g of glucomannan in three doses of 1 g each, together with 1-2 glasses of water, before meals and in the context of an energy-restricted diet. For the positive effect on cholesterol levels, 4 g (a complete daily dose as stated) of glucomannan needs to be taken per day.
Chromium contributes to:
- Normal macronutrient metabolism
- Maintenance of normal blood glucose levels
