Easton, MD (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
According to The National Fiber Council, getting just 7 grams of soluble fiber per day from psyllium may reduce the risk of developing coronary heart disease. Nationally recognized nutrition expert Keri Glassman is joining forces with the number one doctor-recommended, all-natural psyllium fiber supplement, Konsyl, to help spread the word to people about soluble fiber’s heart health benefits.
“Coronary Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in this country, however it can be prevented with healthy lifestyle adjustments including a healthier diet,” explains Glassman, MS, RD, CDN. “A diet low in saturated and trans fat and filled with fiber rich foods like whole grains, vegetables and legumes, supplemented with a fiber supplement like Konsyl will help to lower or maintain cholesterol levels and keep your heart healthy.”
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the condition where a buildup of plaque in the coronary arteries can create a blockage and cause a heart attack. Soluble fiber, like that found in Konsyl Psyllium Fiber, reduces low density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol levels by binding to the cholesterol and increasing its’ elimination from the body.
“A fiber supplement like Konsyl Original Formula is ideal for people who need to add more soluble fiber to their diet to lower cholesterol without adding unwanted calories. In addition to reducing cholesterol levels, soluble fiber also slows digestion and will make you feel fuller longer, which can help curb cravings and manage weight,” adds Glassman.
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. 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.
