Everything You Need To Know About Psyllium Husks
Posted on March 29 2017
Fibre is vital to deliver essential nutrients to the body, and is taken in in the form of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. If we don’t take in enough fibre, our bodies will let us know. Although there are a number of commercial supplements available, at Nutriseed we believe in all-natural, organic fibre, and one of the best forms that this comes in is Psyllium Husks.
Psyllium husk is an edible soluble fiber and prebiotic. It has been known as ‘bulking fibre’ as once ingested, it expands to form a gel-like substance by drawing in water from the colon.
Top 5 benefits of Psyllium Husk
- Relief from infrequent bowel movements
If bowel movements are infrequent, Psyllium Husks has been scientifically proven to provide natural relief, through it swelling and stimulating the intestines to contract, aiding passage of stool through the digestive tract.
- Relief from loose bowel movements
As Psyllium Husks soaks up significant amounts of water in the digestive tract, it helps to make the stool firmer and slower to pass through the digestive system.
- Management of blood sugar
The fibre in Psyllium Husks has been scientifically* proven to help maintain a healthy glycemic index in the body.
- Aids heart health
Scientific research has found that a diet in rich in water-soluble fibre (just like Psyllium Husks) is associated with improved cardiovascular health. This is because the fibre has been known to lower triglyceride levels in the heart.
- Weight management
Because Psyllium Husks swell in the system it gives the feeling of satiety and feeling full, which can help prevent overeating. Additionally, it can also aid here as it naturally improves and speeds up the body’s elimination process of waste.
