Konsyl's Gluten-Free Original Psyllium Fiber
After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.Â The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.Â It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.
Adding fiber to your diet is important for a number of reasons, including dieting, lowering blood cholesterol, or managing or preventing diabetes or heart disease. That being said, I recently came across psyllium fiber from Konsyl that is not only gluten-free, but also happens to be one of the most effective means of adding concentrated extra fiber to your diet.
I also appreciate the fact that Konsyl Original Psyllium Fiber doesn't contain artificial flavors or additives, and is also sugar-free. When I first tried Konsyl I have to say that I was impressed with the purity of the ingredients in comparison to other brands that I've tried in the past.
Just after a light lunch I mixed up one teaspoon of Konsyl fiber with 8 ounces of water and drank it, and followed this up with another cup or two of water. I noticed that I felt full until dinner, as psyllium fiber is not digested by the body and gives one the sensation of feeling full without adding any extra calories.
No matter what your reason may be to add extra fiber to your diet, Konsyl provides a simple and effective way to do it that is worth trying out. I am now hooked on Konsyl's Original Psyllium Fiber!
