An adjuvant in the treatment of obesity, as it reduces appetite by absorbing water in the gastrointestinal tract, causing a feeling of fullness as the fibers expand. Esbeltex is also useful in the treatment of constipation and hyperlipidemia as it reduces the absorption of fatty acids, lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood.
One particle of Konjac powder consists of very long thread-like macromolecules entangled with each other. Upon contact with water, water molecules penetrate into the chain and are absorbed, gradually causing the particles to swell, increasing their volume up to 200 times, turning the powder into a viscous liquid.
The therapeutic effect of Polvo de konjac Esbeltex: hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic and laxative.
Pharmacological action Esbeltex Konjac:
- Appetite suppressing effect: as soon as fiber comes into contact with gastric fluid, it swells, increasing its size several times (the average tablet volume increases from 1 ml to 12 ml in 10 minutes), causing a feeling of fullness.
- Hypoglycemic effect: after ingestion, the fibers turn into a highly viscous gel, which reduces the rate of absorption of food in the small intestine, which leads to a decrease in blood glucose and therefore insulin levels.
- Laxative effect: There are several theories about the laxative mechanism of fibers. The increase in the content of the colon decreases the transit time in the colon; thus, water absorption is reduced, which reduces stool consistency.
Esbeltex tablets have also been effective in reducing weight in overweight patients. Konjac powder is used as an appetite suppressant, making it an excellent aid in weight loss programs and as a laxative in the treatment of constipation and hemorrhoids. Esbeltex lowers total cholesterol and LDL by increasing HDL, so it can be useful for patients with cardiovascular problems, including those secondary to diabetes.
Medical advice: Take Esbeltex with plenty of water.
Special instructions: before using the tablets, it is recommended to consult a doctor.
