Hi there everyone, today I would like to introduce your to Konsyl 100% All-Natural Psyllium Fiber Products. I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to try out my choice of the Psyllium products and I gladly said “yes” and picked the “Original Formula”.
The product came to me in a very timely manner, I also received 2 little packets (that I now carry in my purse) and a Shaker to mix the product in. The product is a nice 450g size for the Original Formula that I received and this one is Sugar and Gluten Free too!
I have IBS and within a few days of taking this as a supplement my IBS has not acted up almost daily like it has in the past. There is nothing like going to a store, having a bathroom emergency and finding out it’s on the opposite side of the store, much less wondering if the gals at the Service Desk, that saw you go in are going to come to check on you when you stay in the restroom for more then an hour. Embarrassing enough to be in the bathroom so long, but worse yet to keep on going and going and hearing people come in and praying they don’t get sick from the smell. lol Yes those things all go through my mind and more when my IBS acts up.
I am so glad to have tried their product, it mixes up well for me, and I must admit that I don’t shake it as long as it says too, I have pain in my arms and shoulders and nerve damage that causes my hands to suddenly release things if I can’t keep my ADD burdened mind on what my hand is doing. But I recommend that you do, I’ve had to a few times that I needed to follow up fast with a glass of water in addition to the product as it remained thick in my shaker cup bottom. I admit again, now this is all my fault and part of my disabilities, that I did not shake the product in water for long enough.
Speaking of shaking, the shaker cup is something that would be loved by 007 as it states, “Shaken, Not Stirred” on it, that made me laugh when I saw it. It may not be a martini (AKA: Martooni in silly Mariah-isms, yes I have silly words for things at times) but I have to say that this product doesn’t have a taste to it. Unlike another product that one of my doctors had me take, little did he know (nor I, until I did the research) that the flavoring used in that product (by another company and commonly found in stores/drugstores) contributes to two things…Diarrhea and Acid Reflux. I ended up throwing away the product with that orange flavor to it and have tried several other fiber products since, but I had not settled on one. Now I have tried this and I have been very satisfied with the results.
