What is Organic Psyllium Husk Powder?

The seed husk of Plantago ovata (psyllium husk) is well known for its effectiveness in both chronic constipation and diarrhea, two opposite states of the gut [1]. Our Organic Psyllium Husk Powder comes from the finest source in India. Psyllium husk is a natural bulking agent that can be used daily for regularity or with detox protocols.

 

How does Organic Psyllium Husk Powder Work?

Psyllium husk, also known as Ispaghula, is often used to aid in the regularity of bowel movement as this natural product has a gut-stimulatory effect as well as a laxative effect related to its fiber content [1]. However, it is unlikely to cause diarrhea as this natural laxative also activates some gut-inhibitory activity, which may offset an excessive stimulant effect [1].

In 2006, the US FDA authorized a health claim that psyllium husk can reduce the risk of heart disease [2]. Since then, the scientific basis for this effect has been heavily scrutinized. The solubility of psyllium husk in water, its viscosity, fermentability, and the type and abundance of protein and tocotrienols have all been investigated [2]. Clinical studies suggest that psyllium can lower serum and liver cholesterol concentrations and may increase HDL-cholesterol levels [2,3]. Because it is a water-soluble fiber, psyllium may moderate glucose levels following a meal, and insulin concentrations in non-insulin dependent diabetic patients (if taken with meals). Due to its low caloric content per volume, supplementing meals with psyllium husk may also aid in the reduction of body weight and hypertension [2].
