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.
100% Organic Psyllium from India
Due to the varying Indian climate, in which hot summers alternate with heavy monsoon rains, it is the region par excellence for the cultivation of this crop.
Psyllium powder is the ideal way to increase fiber intake! The dietary fiber contained in the seed coat can bind more than forty times its own weight in water.
The psyllium fibers have specific properties that can stimulate intestinal function and bowel movements. It contains two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. The insoluble fiber provides bulk and can therefore ensure regular and better bowel movements. The soluble fiber absorbs water, toxins and waste and can ensure better absorption of nutrients.
If you feel bloated, constipated, or suffer from the opposite, take some psyllium husk powder to ease your tummy.
The average recommended dose for psyllium fiber is 5g in 200ml of fruit or vegetable juice before meals. You can take a dose twice a day. In addition, sufficient water should be drunk.
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.
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.
