Psyllium Husks

Whole

Fiber constitutes a unique type of carbohydrate that your body is unable to digest. While most carbohydrates are broken down into sugar molecules for energy, fiber cannot undergo this process and instead passes through your body without being digested.

Fiber is primarily recognized for its capacity to prevent or alleviate constipation. However, it offers numerous other health benefits, such as assisting in maintaining a healthy weight and reducing the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. Fiber aids in regulating your body's sugar utilization, helping to manage hunger and blood sugar levels.

Although consuming a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, and legumes can help fulfill your fiber needs (which range from a minimum of 30 to 38 grams per day for men and 25 grams for women), data from the Institutes of Medicine indicates that the average American (and Canadian) consumes only about 15 grams of fiber daily.

Psyllium can play a crucial role in ensuring you attain sufficient fiber intake each day.

Psyllium is the most commonly used and potent natural dietary fiber for promoting regularity and supporting heart health. Its effectiveness is maximized with daily use and can be continued indefinitely. There are numerous reasons why psyllium is incorporated into the daily health regimen of millions. Psyllium aids in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, including the proper balance of HDL and LDL cholesterol.

Psyllium facilitates normal regularity. Unlike stimulant laxatives, psyllium is gentle and non-addictive. Its bulking action eases elimination and enhances comfort. Additionally, psyllium expedites the removal of waste and toxins from the body, preventing their reabsorption from the colon into the bloodstream. Psyllium can be consumed with or between meals and, when taken in recommended doses, should not interfere with the absorption of vitamins and other nutrients. Psyllium is gluten-free, making it suitable for individuals with gluten sensitivity.

REGULARITY

Psyllium supports effortless, healthy elimination and accelerates the removal of waste from the colon. It furnishes gentle fiber to alleviate and normalize bowel discomfort. To uphold regularity and expedite waste removal, take 1 to 3 servings daily, either with meals or between them.

HEART HEALTH

To help sustain normal cholesterol levels and promote heart health, consume 2 servings daily with meals.

LOW CARB & KETO DIETS

Psyllium is recommended for individuals following low-carb and/or keto diets to supplement the extra fiber typically lacking in these dietary plans.

WEIGHT MAINTENANCE

Dietary fiber plays a crucial role in weight management. High-fiber foods like psyllium promote satiety or a feeling of fullness. To support weight maintenance, take 1 to 3 servings daily, shortly before or with meals.
