Easton, MD (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
Konsyl, the top fiber supplement recommended by doctors across the country, has teamed up with nationally acclaimed nutrition expert Keri Glassman to educate people on the importance of daily fiber intake for promoting normal blood sugar levels as well as insulin sensitivities.
“It’s not news that maintaining normal blood sugar levels is important to overall health and well-being and is a growing concern in the country,” commented Keri Glassman, RD. “Our goal is to help educate people on the importance of fiber to blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as the best ways to insure you’re getting adequate amounts.”
Following a high fiber diet, which equates to 25 grams of fiber per day for women and 38 grams for men, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, helps to decrease cholesterol levels and promote normal blood glucose and insulin levels. The body digests fiber slowly, which in turn slows down the release of glucose, or blood sugar, into the bloodstream, allowing more control of blood sugar levels. Fiber will also help people feel fuller longer which will help people to maintain a healthy weight.
“A healthy diet with plenty of high-fiber foods like whole grains, legumes and vegetables is important,” commented Glassman, “However, many people are not getting the recommended amount of fiber, therefore incorporating a fiber supplement like Konsyl, becomes especially crucial to people trying to manage normal blood sugar levels and insulin management, in addition to overall health.”
Konsyl Original Formula has 75% more fiber per serving than other leading brands, with 6 grams of psyllium fiber per serving—equal to 3 grams of soluble fiber. Konsyl Original Formula is made of 100% psyllium, an all-natural type of soluble fiber that is derived from plants, and is gluten free with no sugar or sugar substitutes.
