In brief: Weight loss

Lipozene contains konjac which is a type of fiber.
There are many fiber supplements that contain soluble fiber. I am not aware of any convincing studies showing it works. The thought is that soluble fiber by mouth will absorb water & the increased bulk will increase the feeling of being full, so that less food will be eaten. The combination of appropriate diet and exercise works well.
