CLOSED Giveaway: Konsyl Psyllium Fiber Capsules

What is Psyllium Fiber?
~ Psyllium fiber comes from the outer coating, or "husk" of the psyllium plant's seeds. It is not wheat, and is therefore gluten free.
~ The psyllium husk is a natural source of soluble fiber, similar to fiber found in grains such as oats and barley.
100 grams of psyllium = 50 grams of soluble fiber
100 grams of oat bran = 5 grams of soluble fiber
A bulk forming laxative, psyllium fiber is frequently used to treat constipation. It absorbs liquid in the intestines, swells and forms a bulky stool, which is easy to pass.
The amount of soluble fiber in psyllium is nearly 5X higher than that of oat bran
How Does Psyllium fiber Work?
Only certain soluble fibers, such as the psyllium fiber in Konsyl, have multiple health benefits, because of its' gelling action. As psyllium forms a gel, it acts like a sponge and absorbs toxins in the digestive tract.
What are the Benefits of Psyllium Fiber?
Intestinal Health Benefits
Helpful for both constipation and diarrhea and used to help relieve a variety of gastrointestinal disorders, such as diverticulosis and crohn's disease.
Bulking agent that promotes regularity.
Heart Health Benefits
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 lowering cholesterol.

One dose of Konsyl Original provides 6 grams of psyllium fiber = 3 grams of soluble fiber

We went with the Konsyl Psyllium Capsuls to try out! We wanted something easy to take & lower chlosterol as seen above! I have read that psyllium fiber helps with weight loss also which is awesome! This can also help with bowel movements!
