Giveaway! Konsyl

Congrats to our winner, Chris!!

Update: Thank you everyone for commenting, the winner is being contacted now!


Did you know Canada.. whenever I think about fiber I think oh, that's for old people, but that's not true. Fiber provides a whole host of health benefits including:

* Relieve constipation and induce regularity (even while pregnant)
* Get relief from various gastrointestinal disorders, such as diverticulosis, Crohn's disease, acid reflux and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
* Reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol
* Follow a heart-healthy diet
* Enhance weight loss
* Help decrease blood cholesterol levels and help maintain healthy blood glucose and insulin levels
* Reduce the chance of developing hemorrhoids



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.

I tried both the Konsyl Original Formula (contains 100% pure natural psyllium fiber) and the Konsyl Balance (a blend of psyllium fiber and inulin, a soluble prebiotic fiber designed to stimulate growth of healthy bacteria in the gut). I was impressed with both, they mix easily and came with a shaker cup so you can have it "shaken, not stirred". I'm always concerned about drinks like this being grainy but they weren't at all. The Konsyl Balance had a great orange taste - very light, not that fake taste I sometimes associate with these kinds of things.




It feels great to know a quick drink can give you so many health benefits, and if drinks aren't your thing they also have Konsyl Psyllium Caps as part of their line. I loved reading that Konsyl Original 450g is the number one doctor recommended all natural psyllium fiber supplement - makes you feel good to know you're using a highly recommended product.
