Glucomannan is a supplement that can be added to juices, food products, and flour. It can absorb water easily and create gel-like bulk.

Benefiber is also a fiber supplement and has wheat dextrin. A teaspoon of the supplement has to be added to water, dissolved, and drunk twice a day to suppress appetite and promote a sense of satiety. It was launched by Novartis Health. It is tasteless and can be added to other food too.

The product has scientific backing when it talks of the fiber content contributing to regularity, but there is no evidence or clinical results that can back its weight loss concept. Some users have complained of side effects like diarrhea. [12] [13] What Users Are Saying
