Psyllium husks, the powdered seeds of the plantain species plantago psyllium and plantago ovata are a gentle natural bulk-forming laxative, used since ancient times by Asian, European and North African peoples.
The tiny seeds of Psyllium Hulls contain high mucilage causing them to swell up when combined with water. It is this bulking property that promotes intestinal cleansing and good bowel function.
Psyllium Husk Benefits
By adding bulk to the stool, psyllium husk restores the smooth transition of waste through the intestinal tract, absorbing putrefaction and other toxins, soothing inflammation, and helping restore balanced gut flora. Constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome, mucous colitis, diverticulitis, diverticulosis and haemorrhoids can all be relieved. Psyllium has a role in supporting cardiovascular health and weight management through supporting cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
