ORGANIC PSYLLIUM HUSKS, whole
Botanical Name: Plantago ovata
Country of Origin: India
Production: Plantago ovata is an annual herb that grows numerous small white flowers with seeds enclosed in capsules that open at maturity. Psyllium husks are the coats of the psyllium seed.
Qualities: The milled husks contain more dietary fibre than the seeds themselves and are used as a home remedy for treating and relieving gastrointestinal troubles. As a mixture of soluble and insoluble fibre, psyllium husks are a natural, gentle remedy for constipation, diarrhea, and digestive discomfort. They have been used for promoting weight loss and for maintaining a healthy glycemic balance in the body.
Common Use: Psyllium husks have a mild flavour and can be added to foods, though it should be noted that they absorb liquids due to high fibre and mucilage content. They are commonly taken as a tea or mixed with water or juice. It is important to drink sufficient water when taking psyllium husks as they absorb fluid in the body.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
