Plantago psyllium / Psyllium Husks Powder
£3.95 – £18.00
Psyllium or ispaghula, is the common name used for several members of the plant genus Plantago whose seeds are used commercially for the production of mucilage. Psyllium Husks are the shells of the Psyllium Seed.
Psyllium is mainly used as a dietary fibe.
The plant from which the seeds are extracted tolerates dry and cool climates and is mainly cultivated in northern India.
Medicinal Action and Uses
Cholesterol Control – Psyllium fibe has been shown in studies to lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. The use of soluble-fibe cereals is an effective and well-tolerated part of a prudent diet for the treatment of mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia.
Digestive Ailments – Although its main use has been as a laxative, it is more appropriately termed a true dietary fiber and as such can help reduce the symptoms of both constipation and mild diarrhea. It is therefore used in the treatment of IBS, anal fissures and haemorrhoids.
Weight Control – Psyllium is used in weight control and for general intestinal health. It contains a spongy fiber that reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system, making it an excellent choice for healthy dieting.
