Kellyann Petrucci, N.D. has made quite the name for herself thanks to the potent cleanses she created that help us heal and slim down.
Petrucci said she’s always exploring ways to make them even more potent. This is why she started researching konjac, a root which grows in Asia.
She found out about its amazing advantages, both for the overall health and for weight loss. This is why she decided to add powdered konjac to her signature smoothies and soups.
Some of her patients helped her test it and she says it was amazing. Now, people can drop up to 11 pounds while triggering a constant fat loss thanks to konjac.
Additional data points out konjac’s power to better the skin health, balance the blood sugar levels and cholesterol, as well as the digestion.
Konjac: One of the most Popular Japanese Foods?
Consumed in Japan for hundreds of years, konjac is a type of yam which is common in the US for production of shirataki noodles.
It can also be found in supplement form (glucomannan) and added to liquids and baked goods.
What’s the Secret of the Konjac?
The special fiber in konjac acts like a sponge in our digestive tract and it sops up liquids and lowers carb and cholesterol absorption, according to Dr Oz.
Kellyan added that it grabs onto three times more fat in the GI than other fiber. It’s great to consume it because it won’t lead to higher caloric intake.
As it takes on liquid, it transforms into a thick gel which goes through our system slowly and makes us feel sated for longer.
This gel helps in the body’s transformation of carbs into sugar and reduces risk of sugar spikes and cravings.
You’ll automatically feel less hungry and cut calories without feeling deprived.
Dr Kellyan’s favorite advantage is how the gel formed soothes our gut lining and promotes healing. This is important, especially with an inflamed gut caused by stress and junk food.
It lowers inflammation which has been linked with weight gain and other health issues.
