Benefits of Organic Psyllium Husk

Psyllium Husk

In general I will recommend my clients to use Psyllium Husk to add that needed bit of Fiber that our current food lacks.

What is Psyllium Husk? 

Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. It sometimes goes by the name ispaghula.

It’s most commonly known as a laxative. However, research shows that taking psyllium is beneficial to many parts of the human body, including the heart and the pancreas.

It’s most commonly used as a bulk forming laxative or gentle stool softener (it’s the main ingredient in Metamucil), but it’s also a prebiotic that helps balance the good bacteria in your gut.

Why is FIBER so important for our Diet?

There is strong evidence that eating plenty of fibre is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer. Choosing foods with fibre also makes us feel fuller, while a diet rich in fibre can help digestion and prevent constipation.

Dietary fiber increases the weight and size of your stool and softens it. A bulky stool is easier to pass, decreasing your chance of constipation. If you have loose, watery stools, fiber may help to solidify the stool because it absorbs water and adds bulk to stool. Helps maintain bowel health.

I usually chose Psyllium Husk for myself as it is easy to find in all health food shops, it has a very prompt response in our organism and unless used in high doses, there is no side effects. Recommended dose is 1/2 tablespoon at night with plenty of luke warm water. Is a great source of fiber for people consuming a Keto Diet, where Fiber is harder to find in the food consumed.
