MEGAFIBER Psyllium Fiber: Your holiday over-eating remedy!

The holidays reminds me a lot of things: family reunions, friendly get-togethers, parties, gifts and yes, food. I mean a lot of food! Every occasion wouldn't be complete without an awesome and hearty meal to relish with your loved ones. Conversations goes a long way without us minding how many calories have gone already into our mouth through our stomach, and then we realized, we start complaining about tummy fullness. Urk, I guess that's holidays for us!

We don't usually mind about our diet during these season, right? Whatever is served during a party, we just scarf away what we can gather and get that satisfying feeling after. Next thing we know, we gained weight, we started to complain about cramping and constipation and lot more. And that my friends, is where I introduce MEGAFIBER to you!

Megafiber Psyllium Fiber is a 100% all natural, multi-tasking fiber supplement that provides multiple health benefits for overall well-being. The new Megafiber is made from up from all-naturall psyllium fiber, a bulk-forming fiber. When it absorbs liquids, it forms a slippery film and swells by 8-14 times its normal weight and forms a soft, bulky mass that passes quickly and easily through the colon. Plus, it helps stimulate the reflex needed for the to empty.

Launched by the people who originally brought you psyllium fiber, the new Megafiber delivers on all of its benefits at 50 percent more value for money. Without spending more, users of psyllium fiber will get 50 percent more of the hardworking dietary fiber supplement with new Megafiber.  They can expect new Megafiber to help them prevent constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), control Diarrhea or Loose Bowel Movement (LBM), reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart diseases, lose weight, and regulate blood sugar.

Because new Megafiber binds with cholesterol secreted in bile acids and excretes it before it is absorbed into the blood stream, it helps reduce cholesterol and correspondingly, the risk of heart disease. At the same time, it provides a feeling of fullness which in turn helps reduce hunger pangs, and lessens the tendency to overeat.  This could lead to weight loss as new Megafiber also assists in capturing then excreting the fats in our food.
Available at Mercury Drug and other major drugstores nationwide, the new Megafiber comes in bigger 7.5g travel sachets and 300g bottles at existing retail prices of leading brands. It is also offered in half-kilo family size packs for those who want greater savings.

With all of its health benefits, the new Megafiber offers great value for consumers looking to stretch their hard-earned peso.  It contains pure 100% natural psyllium fiber in every dose (the equivalent to 45grams of oats).  It is a natural and safe way to regularly rid the body of wastes that can lead to digestive disorders and serious health conditions.  There are no additives, sweeteners, preservatives, artificial colors or flavoring in new Megafiber. It is also cholesterol-, yeast- and gluten-free. 

I shed 3 lbs already by just having a regular intake of Megafiber in just a month! Hihihi :D
