Psyllium Husk Info

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.

Psyllium Husk Side Effects

Take psyllium supplements with lots of water – at least a glass per dose on top of normal fluid intake. Without the water the psyllium may swell in the gastrointestinal tract and in extreme cases can cause choking. Contraindicated if you have difficulty swallowing, and in cases of oesophageal stricture or any other narrowing through the digestive tract. Prescription drugs may be less effective if taken with psyllium, so take them at different times of the day.

    A spoonful of this is all I need to keep my bowel movement in tact. I love the way it's natural with no sweeteners.

    star

    I suffered from severe constipation. Taking this product for two days solved the problem. I now take it alternate days with a large glass of water or add it to my cereal. Very good price. Better than Metamusil which is loaded with sucrose.
