Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative. This means it soaks up water in your gut and makes bowel movements much easier and can help promote regularity without increasing flatulence. It can be used as a one-off to ease constipation, or it can be added to your diet to help promote regularity and overall digestive health.
Besides keeping your bowel movements regular, psyllium has the ability to soften your stool, provided you drink enough water. This can come in handy with short-term ailments, such as constipation.
If you’ve been told that you need to watch your cholesterol, ask your doctor if adding psyllium to a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet will help you.
We use psyllium seed husks in our bread, buns, wraps, and keto muffins.
We want to make it available to you so you can also enjoy its health benefits.
