It is recommended that one takes two capsules one hour before each meal with 250mls of water.
What are the contents of Magilim? Magilim contains Konjac glucomannan, which is extracted from the Konjac plant. When ingested, it turns into a gel like substance with the capability to expand to almost fifty times, giving a feeling of fullness and delays stomach emptying, thus preventing overeating. Konjac also acts as a cleanser, absorbing and expelling toxins from the body. Studies in Kenya show that it also helps in lowering cholesterol. Konjac has also been shown to control blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes and is approved for treating constipation.
There are however, side effects associated with the use of Magilim, though manageable. Magilim should be taken with plenty of water to prevent choking and blockage of the throat and intestines. This product for Kenyans should also not be taken shortly before bedtime.
