Glucomannan in tablet form

Glucomannan is an appetite suppressant that swells in the stomach to create a feeling of fullness. In tablet form, Glucomannan is permanently banned due to the hazards associated with choking on the tablet while swallowing. Glucomannan is still widely available in capsule and powder forms, which do not pose a choking hazard to the user.
