Konsyl For Healthy Digestive Health & My Health


We’ve all heard about the digestive and other health benefits of having enough fiber, but in addition to helping promote regularity and good digestive health adequate soluble fiber intake offers an abundance of health benefits, ranging from a reduced risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol, to reducing blood sugar absorption, thereby assisting in the management of Type-2 Diabetes. Fiber can also aid in weight loss by making you feel fuller longer.

Psyllium fiber, such as the fiber found in Konsyl Fiber Supplements, is a bulk-forming soluble fiber derived from the outer coating, or "husk" of the psyllium plant's seeds. Because psyllium does not come from wheat it is therefore gluten free and safe for celiac patients. Konsyl products are also safe for pregnant and nursing women. Just one serving of Konsyl Original Formula 450g provides 6 grams of psyllium fiber (equal to 3 grams of soluble fiber), 75% more than the leading brands.


What I Can Tell You:
After my hospital stay and eventually surgery last year, taking care of my intestine is something I now know to be extremely important but I also know if it isn't easy to do, or doesn't taste good, you won't do it. Usually I balance all meals with a nice dose of fiber. Beside it being good for you, the body needs it in order for things to move smoothly. Since my surgery, I have realized that my intestine will never be the same. I know when something is passing through that area and have many different twinges and the occasional discomfort. Most of this may have to do with a protruding intestine which decided to pop out last month. Staying on top of my fiber game has become a full time job. Pushing the intestine back is is also a full time job.

When I first started the Konsyl I only used water and the orange flavor balance one. You can take it three times a day. Simply take a teaspoon, put it in the Konsyl shaker cup and shake. The first day, I wasn't loving the grainy texture but by the end of the second day, I didn't mind it. Eventually I started mixing the the original and Balance by using a half of each on a teaspoon and mixing with orange juice or apple juice. Honestly, it isn't bad. I did have some gas pains one day but don't contribute this to the Konsyl. There are many things that cause me discomfort when it comes to my intestines. I don't treat them very well all the time. These pains sidelined me for 24 hours but eventually they were gone and all was well. It took me a day to go back to the Konsyl but haven't had those pains again.

  3. My comment is I soooo need to win this to try for me and my daughter. We have terrible digestive problems that run in our family. We need to treat our guts better but we don't. My mom is starting to worry my daughter actually has Crohn's Disease which is found in our family. Thank you for introducing me to this and for the chance to win. Fingers so crossed.
