Organic psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. It sometimes goes by the name ispaghula. Sometimes also known as fiberhusk. It’s most commonly known as a laxative. Also an essential part of LCHF diets.
Composition: 100% organic psyllium.
On the lower end of dosing, 5g of psyllium is taken once with meals alongside some form of liquid (200mL of water or more) and can be taken at every meal if desired; coingestion of psyllium with a meal is not mandatory although coingestion with water is highly advised. Acute doses of up to 30g appear to be well tolerated assuming enough water (in these instances, around 500mL or so) are also coingested.
If using psyllium for the fecal forming properties, a daily dose of 15g (thrice daily dosing of 5g) is a good starting point and then the dose can be titrated up or down depending on its effects on fecal formation.
NB! Psyllium should be taken with water acutely, and placement of psyllium powder or husk into the mouth without water may result in sapping of saliva and subsequent choking.
