Easton, MD (PRWEB) February 28, 2008
Konsyl Pharmaceuticals celebrates the 75th anniversary of helping people shake it up. Among all the fiber supplements out there, Konsyl premium psyllium fiber brings customers better mornings with the most fiber per dose, naturally. Konsyl is also famous for its "shaker cup" that makes fiber easy to drink. To date, more than 50,000 shaker cups have been mailed out to customers who request one at the Konsyl website, http://www.addfiber.com.
Today's health awareness is nothing new. Psyllium has been recommended by doctors in the U.S. as a natural dietary supplement for regularity since the 1920s. Konsyl stood out from the rest with the development of a special technique for extracting the most effective part of the psyllium seed, its gelatinous coating. This breakthrough, which led to the Konsyl mixable fiber powder available today, was patented in 1934. Psyllium itself has been known as a remedy for centuries. It has been prescribed in India, where the psyllium plant is natively grown, since 1868. However, other medicinal uses for psyllium seeds have been traced as far back as the Crusades, a millennium ago.
Physicians have been actively recommending all-natural Konsyl fiber to patients for over 50 years. Doctors and patients prefer Konsyl because it's more effective with 6 grams of psyllium per teaspoon dose, more than any other leading brand. Both Konsyl Original and Konsyl Easy Mix are also sugar free and gluten free, making them safe for diabetic and celiac patients as well as pregnant or nursing mothers.
Modern medicine finds psyllium fiber helpful for a number of ailments including constipation, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, diverticular disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), high cholesterol and Type 2 Diabetes.
