Psyllium is a seed which is extracted from Plantago ovata, a plant that belongs to the Plantaginaceae family. The Psyllium Husk is a fibre found in the seed of the plant. The plant itself is native to Asia, the Mediterranean and North Africa, requiring large amounts of sunlight and well-drained, moist soil. The Plantago ovata is a shrub-like perennial plant with narrow green leaves and spikes of small flowers which grow into seedpods where the Psyllium Husk is extracted.
Psyllium Husk has traditionally been used in Western herbal medicine to treat ailments such as constipation, diarrhoea, and problems of the genito-urinary tract. Psyllium husk is high in both soluble and insoluble dietary fibre which helps to bulk up the gut contents. The Husk may also be used in gluten-free bread to make the end product less crumbly.
Benefits of Psyllium Husk
Psyllium Husk is primarily used for gut health, including digestion and colon health. This helps to regulate and soften the stool as a result of the fibre content in the Psyllium Husk, easing pain and discomfort in the gut. The Husk is also thought to help control cholesterol and blood lipid levels, maintaining satiety and hunger levels.
