Amorphophallus konjac has long been prized medicinally for its weight loss properties and is now used in many weight loss products.

Amorphophallus konjac forms a gelatinous mass when mixed with water. The body does not digest Amorphophallus konjac when eaten, rather the gelatinous mass moves through the digestive system, stimulating the stomach and the intestines, grabbing substances along the digestive tract as it moves through the digestive system. This function is why it is often used as a natural laxative and a diet aid. Its ability to swell when mixed with water allows it to fill the stomach. It moves through the digestive system very slowly, making the appetite feel satisfied for a longer period of time. As a part of a weight loss plan, coupled with exercise and drinking plenty of water, it may aid in the treatment of obesity.
