Review and giveaway: Konsyl Fiber

My son, Ethan, had surgery earlier this week, so we spent two days at Children's Hospital while he recovered.  During these two days, my meals were eaten in a hurry and pretty much consisted of whatever I could grab from the cafeteria.  And I did not grab healthy options.  So, by the time we came home, my digestive system was expressing its unhappiness. Fortunately, I had a couple of products at home from Konsyl, which helped me get back on track.  The products that I had received were Konsyl Balance Orange and the Konsyl Psyllium Caps 100's.

Here's a bit about these products, from the Konsyl website:
Konsyl Balance Orange-
  • Blend of psyllium fiber and inulin, a soluble prebiotic fiber
  • Stimulate growth of healthy bacteria in the gut
  • Sugar Free
  • Refreshing orange flavor
  • Helps to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels*
  • Combination of two fibers helps you maintain a healthy digestive balance*
  • Helps you to manage your weight by helping you to feel full and curb cravings*
*These statements have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Konsyl Psyllium Caps-

  • No sugar or sugar substitutes
  • Convenient easy to swallow
  • Heart healthy formula helps reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol
  • Restores regularity
  • Relieves occasional constipation
I'm now a big fan of both of these products. I really like the capsules in particular, because they're really easy to swallow and I can just take them and be done with it.  The Balance also is a nice option for adding fiber to my diet- I thought that it tasted fine when mixed in with my juice and was easy to drink.  I often don't get enough fiber in my daily diet, so I'm happy to have these two products from Konsyl to help me get the fiber that I need.

Konsyl offers a number of other fiber products as well, visit the website to see them all.

And I have good news! One of you will win your choice of four products from Konsyl. You can choose from the following:
  • Konsyl Original Formula 450g (SRP $19.00)

I would love to try these products because I recently had a conversation with my doctor where she told me no one gets enough fiber unless you just eat celery all day, and that everyone should take a fiber supplement, so I've been looking for something to try.

I try to make sure my whole family gets enough fiber every day. It can actually be a bit tricky! But I'm probably the one who needs it most, so I'd love to try Konsyl products!

Colon cancer runs in my family, so I am always looking for ways to increase my fiber intake. This seems like a simple, yet effective way to do that.
