    Psyllium Husk

    Psyllium is a soluble fiber used primarily as a gentle bulk-forming laxative. It comes from the plant plantain which produces tiny, gel-coated seeds. Psyllium husk is derived from these odorless, tasteless seeds.

    When Psyllium husk comes in contact with water, it swells and forms a gelatinous mass that stimulates the transport of waste through the intestinal tract.

    Psyllium Husk and Diet & Detox: Psyllium is a convenient way to increase fibre intake, and support your diet. Psyllium is a bulking agent with a high mucilage content which plays an important role in maintaining healthy colon cleansing. The soluble fibre found in psyllium husks plays an important role in lowering cholesterol. Psyllium may also help healthy blood sugar levels of insulin and glucose to aid fat metabolism. Early research shows that dietary psyllium supplementation may help to increase the excretion of fat in the stool

  • psyllium husk eliminates waste from the body
  • psyllium husk increases feeeling of satiety (fullness)
  • pysllium husk may increase the excretion of fat in the stool
  • psyllium may normalise blood glucose and insulin

    Psyllium Husk and Digestive Health: Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative and is high in both fiber and mucilage. Psyllium seeds contain 10–30% mucilage for normal bowel health.

    Constipation: Psyllium husk is a useful remedy for constipation because it can increase bowel movements per day, and decrease total gut transit time, especially for:

  • inadequate fibre intake from modern western fast-food diets
  • a sedentary lifestyle

    Diarrhoea: Pysllium fibre is an effective stool bulking agent in diarrhoea. Recent research suggests that it may have applications in the treatment of inflammatory bowel conditions that cause diarrhoea
