Konsyl Fiber Review and Giveaway

As a sufferer of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, I know just how important fiber is, but I find it very difficult to get the recommended 25-38 g of daily fiber intake through food alone so I often take fiber supplements. I was recently introduced to a new brand of fiber supplements called Konsyl, which is psyllium fiber (a soluble plant fiber). I also suffer from high cholesterol but I was unaware that just one serving of Konsyl fiber products provides the body with 6 g of psyllium fiber and provides a variety of health benefits, such as relief of constipation and promotion of regularity (even while pregnant), relief from various gastrointestinal disorders and a reduced risk of developing hemorrhoids, enhanced weight loss, decreased blood cholesterol levels, which can reduce risk of heart disease, and healthy blood glucose and insulin levels, thereby assisting in the management of diabetes. In addition, many Konsyl fiber products are sugar and gluten free, all natural, safe for celiac patients, people with diabetes, pregnant and nursing mothers, and are available in powder, capsule and single-serve packets. You can connect with Konsyl on Facebook and/or Twitter to find out more about their products.

Konsyl sent me for review a box of their 30-count original packets. These 30 single-use packets contain 100% pure psyllium and contain no sugar or sugar substitutes. In addition to relieving occasional constipation by restoring regularity, this products contains a heart-healthy formula that helps to lower cholesterol, which can help reduce the risk of heart disease, helps support diabetes management, digestive health, and a healthy weight. These single use packets are convenient and perfect for “on-the-go”.

I thought the packet was very convenient because I didn't have to worry about measuring. I simply emptied the packet into the shaker cup that Konsyl provided me with and I added in water or juice, secured the lid, and shook for a few seconds. The first time I tried the Konsyl fiber I mixed it with water but I found it difficult to finish this way because let's face it, fiber doesn't taste so good. All the subsequent times I mixed the Konsyl fiber with a mixture of juice and water to give it some flavor and I was able to tolerate it quite well and it got easier and easier each time. The package says this can be taken up to three times a day but I usually took it only 1-2 times a day. Since I've started taking the Konsyl fiber, I've found that my bowels have been moving a little more regular than usual and I'm able to go more frequently and easier. I had no adverse reaction or side effects from using Konsyl fiber. I can easily and discretely take along a packet when traveling, which will be great come time for vacation. A couple of weeks ago I had my cholesterol checked and it was elevated so I feel even more confident in using this Konsyl fiber product and hope it can help lower my cholesterol back down to a normal range.

    I learned that there is growing evidence that suggests a diet rich in fiber lowers LDL or “bad” cholesterol. Good to know. Thanks for the giveaway.
