Get Your Fiber with Konsyl: A Review and GIVEAWAY!



Konsyl Original Formula 450g is the natural psyllium fiber supplement with more psyllium per dose than any other leading brand. Safe for celiac patients, diabetics and pregnant and nursing mothers.


Brand Overview: Founded and trademarked in 1934, Konsyl Original Formula 450g is the #1 doctor-recommended all natural psyllium fiber supplement. The name Konsyl comes from its key ingredient: concentrated psyllium. Psyllium seed husk has been recommended by doctors in the U.S. as a natural dietary supplement for regularity since the 1920s.

Key Features: Konsyl products contain psyllium fiber, a soluble fiber that has multiple health benefits. Psyllium is a bulk-forming fiber laxative derived from the outer coating, or "husk" of the psyllium plant's seeds. It does not come from wheat, and is therefore gluten free. Psyllium works by absorbing liquid in the intestines and swelling to create a softer, bulky stool that is easier to pass. Only certain soluble fibers, such as the psyllium fiber in Konsyl, have multiple health benefits, because of its gelling action. As psyllium forms a gel, it acts like a sponge and absorbs toxins in the digestive tract.  Konsyl has products that are:

§         Sugar and Gluten free
§         All natural
§         Made with 100% pure psyllium, a soluble plant fiber
§         Safe for celiac patients, diabetics and pregnant and nursing mothers
§         Available in powder, capsule and single-serve packets

My Review:

As I grow closer to 40, I am becoming more aware of the areas in my life that I have to fine tune in order for my body to continue to work properly, so I can remain healthy. Not only am I careful about the about of sugar and carbohydrates I consume (as a Type 2 Diabetic) I am also aware that I need to make sure I am consuming the right amount of fiber. So when the opportunity came up to review Konsyl Fiber Supplement products, I knew it was something I wanted to review. I chose to review the  Konsyl Sugar Free Fiber Supplement Packets (set of 30)

The first thing I want to say is that it is very easy to mix with water, has no gritty aftertaste, and comes in a nice Orange flavor, perfect for most people. I can't say whether its the fact that I am using Konsyl or just increasing my fiber intake in general, but I know that in the last few months, I am feeling better and have seen some differences in many of my medical tests that I do regularly. 

If you are dealing with watching your blood sugar, cholestoreal or have general fiber issues, I highly recommend you check out the great products from Konsyl. There is something for everyone.
