Closing the Fiber Gap - Konsyl Finds a Way to Increase the Fiber in Our Daily Diet by 20 Percent

Share Article

The National Cancer Institute recommends 25-to-35 grams of fiber per day while the average person only consumers 12-to-17 grams daily.

Konsyl Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a leading producer of high quality, all natural fiber supplements for improving intestinal health, announces Konsyl Original. Konsyl Original is a 100% natural psyllium fiber supplement that can be added to the daily diet and help to close the "Fiber Gap" many people currently have in their daily diets.

Several health organizations and the Federal Government have stressed the importance of dietary fiber. The National Cancer Institute's recommendations of 25 to 35 grams of fiber per day would be equivalent to consuming 8-13 apples per day, or 12 - 16 slices of whole-wheat bread.

According to recent USDAQ surveys, the average daily intake of dietary fiber by women 19 to 50 years of age is about 12 grams. Intake by men of the same age is about 17 grams. The difference between the amounts of fiber we do consume and the amounts we should consume is called the "fiber gap". Decreasing the fiber gap by increasing daily fiber intake, either through diet or with supplements is recommended.

Eating a variety of foods that contain dietary fiber is the best way to get an adequate amount, however, sometimes even the most disciplined eaters have a difficult time meeting the 25-35 gram goal. For individuals having difficulty getting enough fiber in their daily diet, an easy and convenient way is to consider adding a fiber supplement. A supplement containing psyllium is the best choice. An unflavored fiber supplement such as Konsyl can be taken with a variety of fruit juices, which not only adds variety but also extra vitamins and minerals to your daily regiment. One daily dose of Konsyl supplies 5 grams of total dietary fiber, or 20% of the RDA for women and 15% for men.

Konsyl Original is 100% natural psyllium fiber. It contains no sugar or sugar substitutes and is gluten free. Konsyl Original is available online at
