I was recently approached and asked if I was interested in reviewing a fiber supplement called Konsyl. Since I have never tried anything like this before, and being that November is" Diabetes Awareness Month ", I said sure! Konsyl was founded in 1934, and is the #1 doctor recommended all natural psyillium fiber supplement.Konsyl comes from it's key ingredient concentrated Psyllium. Konsyl is a bulk forming fiber laxative derived from the outer coating or husk of the Psyllium plant seed. It does not come from wheat and is sugar and gluten free!
Psyllium absorbs liquid in the intestines and swelling to create a softer, bulkier stool that is easy to pass. Konsyl has a slew of health benefits also. They are as follows:
~ All natural
~ Sugar and Gluten free
~ Made with 100% pure pysllium(soluble plant fiber)
~ Safe for celiac patients, diabetics and pregnant nursing mothers
Konsyl is for men and women of all ages. You can manage your weight and your cholesterol with Konsyl. I have high cholesterol issues in my family so I'm curious to see if taken regularly , how it can reduce my cholesterol levels. Konsyl is used for men and women of all ages who want to:
~ Get relief from constipation and induce regularity(even while pregnant)
~ Get relief from various gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohns,
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
(IBS) and Acid reflux
~ Enhance weight loss
~ Follow a heart healthy diet
~ Reduce the chance of having hemorrhoids
~ Decrease blood cholesterol levels and maintain healthy blood glucose & insulin levels
~ Lower the risk of heart disease
I received the Konsyl Original Formula Psyllium Fiber and the Konsyl Psyllium 100 Capsules for review, with a shaker cup and two packets of Konsyl Orange Sugar Free Packets. This was my first time experimenting with a supplement so I was a bit nervous as to the results, but it was a breeze. One thing I goofed on the first time was stirring it which if I read the directions properly, I would have noticed it said stir. What a big difference it made with consistency. I must say that the taste wasn't that bad at all. I really enjoyed the orange sugar free taste. This is an awesome drink for diabetics who are trying to lower their sugar and watching their weight!!
I must say that the Konsyl Psyllium Fiber 100 Capsules were my favorite of all. They are easy to swallow, the don't have a funny smelling taste and the perks that come with it are great. Most people like to have a bowel movement daily, but that is not the case with some. I know this as some of my elderly relatives are always having issues with this. Every ones body is different , so as the directions say that within 12-72 hours a bowel movement generally is produced. The directions were spot on with me.I felt pretty good after using Konsyl.
