Because the value of K is constant from the ratio of the concentration of products over reactants. By increasing the equilibrium concentration of reactants, it will then increase the equilibrium concentration of the products in order to drive the reaction forward. This will then decrease the concentration of reactants until the equilibrium constant is reached.
According to Le Chatelier's principle, adding additional reactant to a system will shift the equilibrium to the right, towards the side of the products because the frequency of successful collisions of that reactant would increase, allowing for an increase in the forward reaction, and thus the generation of the product
