What's Good About Trimspa?
Trimspa contains glucomannan, a water-soluble dietary fiber derived from konjac root (Amorphophallus konjac).
Like other forms of dietary fiber, glucomannan is considered a bulk-forming laxative and expands in the stomach to reduce appetite by creating a feeling of fullness.
Glucomannan, especially in pill form, needs to be taken with plenty of water, or it can cause obstruction in the esophagus or blockages further down in the digestive tract.
