Hello! I just wanted to share what I found out about glucomannan. My llmd said it is actually an excellent binder and can help reduce a herx. It is also good for constipation. I've been making a pudding out of it which I really like, I'll share the ingredients just in case any of you would like to try it! (I get the powdered glucomannan on Amazon, think I paid $11 for a bottle or right around there). Here is the recipe:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 t glucomannan
sweetener of your choice ( I use stevia, not totally sure the right measurement, still playing with that!)
1 T cocoa powder (unsweetened)
Put in microwave for 1 min and 30 sec or if you prefer not to use a microwave I'm sure cooking in a pot for a couple minutes would work. Make sure you really stir before and after then put in the fridge to cool.
I really like it and it's kind of nice to think I'm getting benefits from eating a treat! You can google other recipes too, it's used as a thickener.
