Easton, MD (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
A recent study published by NewHope360(1) showed that most Americans are not getting enough fiber, with most only getting 12-18 grams of daily fiber instead of the recommended 25-38 grams. The good news is that 72 percent of Americans have reported trying to consume more fiber to reach these daily fiber recommendations, which is important for overall health and wellness. According to Keri Glassman, a registered dietitian who has teamed up with Konsyl Pharmaceuticals to help educate people on fiber’s health benefits, fiber can help with weight management, promote digestive health, manage blood sugar levels as well as insulin sensitivity, and helps to lower cholesterol levels to reduce risk of heart disease.
“To boost fiber intake, I recommend starting with foods naturally high in fiber like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes and supplementing with an all-natural, psyllium fiber supplement like Konsyl Original Formula,” explains Glassman. “Since Konsyl Original Formula has no flavor, it can easily be used in cooking and baking. I also love to mix it with parmesan cheese and sprinkle onto steamed vegetables, creating a healthy, high fiber dish.”
Below is a high fiber recipe from Glassman featuring Konsyl Original Formula, which is made of 100% psyllium, an all-natural type of soluble fiber. Konsyl Original Formula has 75% more fiber per serving than other leading brands, with 6 grams of psyllium fiber (equal to 3 grams of soluble fiber) in just one serving.
