During Celiac Awareness Month, Nutrition Expert Keri Glassman Encourages People with Celiac Disease to Find a Fiber Alternative like Konsyl Original Formula
Date:5/22/2013

Easton, MD (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder effecting up to 3 million people in the U.S.(1) Celiac is triggered by gluten, causing damage to the small intestine and mal-absorption of nutrients(2). To protect the small intestine and prevent symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, weight loss and vitamin deficiency, people with celiac disease must abide by a gluten-free diet. While there are many gluten-free foods that celiac sufferers can eat, living with a gluten-free diet often means taking out common sources of fiber like cereal and whole wheat bread. This means those with celiac disease will need to look for other ways to consume adequate amounts of fiber — an important part of any well-rounded diet.

“People suffering with celiac disease are often very aware of the nutrient makeup and ingredients in the foods they’re eating, and for that reason are very health conscious. Having celiac disease makes it even more important to pay attention to your digestive health including getting adequate fiber on a daily basis,” explains Keri Glassman, RD. “Supplementing a gluten-free diet with an all-natural, gluten-free psyllium fiber supplement like Konsyl Original Formula is a great way to ensure you’re getting the daily fiber that’s needed to stay healthy.”

According to Glassman, there are numerous health benefits that fiber provides including weight management and promoting digestive health. Additionally, fiber helps protect the heart by lowering blood cholesterol and can help manage blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends 25 grams of fiber per day for women and 38 grams of fiber per day for men in order to experience fiber’s health benefits.

Konsyl is the number one doctor-recommended, all-natural psyllium fiber supplement in the country. It’s 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 per serving—equal to 3 grams of soluble fiber.
