Renowned Nutritionist, Keri Glassman, Announced as New Spokesperson for Konsyl Psyllium Fiber

EASTON, MD--(Marketwire - Aug 13, 2012) - Konsyl, the number one doctor-recommended, all-natural psyllium fiber supplement, has announced that nationally acclaimed nutrition expert, Keri Glassman, will become the company's new spokesperson.

An accredited MS, RD and CDN, Glassman is the founder of Nutritious Life Meals, an advisory board member and regular contributor to Women's Health Magazine, a regular contributor to national TV shows including NBC's The Today Show and ABC's Good Morning America and the author of three books including, Slim Calm Sexy Diet, The O2 Diet: The Cutting Edge, Antioxidant-Based Program That Will Make You Healthy, Thin and Beautiful and The Snack Factor Diet. In her new role, Glassman will work with Konsyl to educate consumers on the importance of fiber and how to utilize fiber supplements, such as Konsyl Psyllium Fiber, in their diets.

"Many people believe that fiber supplements are for people who already have health issues, but my goal is to show people that this is not the case," commented Keri Glassman, MS, RD, CDN, "In fact, getting adequate amounts of fiber is necessary to everyone in order to best manage all aspects of well-being."

According to Glassman, there are numerous health benefits that fiber provides, from weight management to promoting bowel. Additionally, fiber helps protects the heart by lowering blood cholesterol and can help manage blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivities.

"While it is possible to get the recommended amount of fiber from our diet, most people only eat 10 to 15 grams of fiber per day -- meanwhile the American Dietetic Association recommends 25 grams for women and 38 for men per day," explains Glassman. "A diet high in fiber from foods like whole grains, legumes and vegetables, is key, but individual needs vary and often even people who are eating the recommended amount will find that they need more. Konsyl fiber is a simple and effective way to make sure you get your daily recommended dose."

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. 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.

"Keri is very knowledgeable in all aspects of nutrition, this paired with her established presence in the health and wellness industry makes her the ideal expert to represent our brand to help educate the media and consumers. We are excited to have her on board as a part of our team," says Anthony Cantaffa, Executive Vice President from Konsyl.
