Yes, constipation. I know, it makes you cringe. Nobody wants to talk about it. It isn’t the most joyful topic. But more than that, nobody likes to have it! So why don’t we just talk about it for a few paragraphs or so, then discover what to do about it and we’ll be happy and move on! 😉
I have struggled with constipation ever since I can remember. It is a very frustrating, irritating and bothersome issue. There are a few ways to deal with it, some healthy and some not. it seemed like I had tried mostly everything, and then I tried Konsyl. Over the past year, I have been using Konsyl’s all natural products to relieve constipation and they have worked great for me.
Konsyl’s original formula is made up of 100% natural, gluten free, sugar free psyllium fiber. Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative that absorbs liquid in the intestines, swells, and forms a bulky stool, which is easy to pass.
Konsyl products are safe for celiac patients, people with diabetes and pregnant and nursing mothers. Konsyl isn’t just for those who suffer from constipation, but also for those who want to have a healthy lifestyle and better overall health.
Did you know adding fiber to your diet – specifically psyllium fiber, is beneficial? Clinical studies have shown that 7 grams of soluble fiber from psyllium husk, taken daily as part of a heart healthy diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease by helping to lower cholesterol AND can help with weight management AND can help regulate constipation and diarrhea!
Psyllium fiber 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
- § Healthy blood glucose and insulin levels, thereby assisting in the management of diabetes
Konsyl has a number of fiber products; Konsyl Original Formula (450g), Konsyl Balance Orange (450g0, Konsyl Original Formula 30-count packets, and Konsyl Senna Prompt Capsules 90-count.
- Packaged in 30 single-use packets
- Perfect for “on-the-go”
- Heart-healthy formula
- Helps support diabetes management, digestive health, and a healthy weight
The Konsyl Original Formula Packets ($9.50) is my favorite of the Konsyl products. They are small packets that are very portable! Just bring them with you and pour them into your drinks when it is convenient! They are sugar and gluten free, and of course all natural 100% pure psyllium.
The best way to consume is putting the Psyllium fiber in a drink of choice (pulpy fruit juices, iced tea, milk, lemonade). The Konsyl Shaker cup is the best way to mix the formula with the drink. The psyllium absorbs very quickly, so shaking it to mix is a better solution than a stir stick!
**As always, more ways to prevent constipation are to drink plenty of fluids, exercise regularly, and eat a high-fiber diet, including whole-grain (e.g., bran) cereals, fruits, and vegetables.
