For anyone seeking a natural source of dietary fiber to combat IBD, alleviate constipation, and help lower cholesterol.
• Psyllium husk comes from the crushed seeds of the Plantago ovate plant. It is rich in soluble fiber and therefore, even a small amount helps to achieve the cholesterol-lowering effect. In combination with a low fat diet, it has been known to lower total cholesterol by 4% and LDL by 7%. It is being used in the food industry to form gels that thicken and give textural changes to foods. Every 100 grams of psyllium provides 71 grams of soluble fiber. (A similar amount of oat bran would provide only 5 grams.)
• Adding water to dry psyllium causes it to swell to up to ten times its original volume. Therefore, it increases fecal bulk and loosens stools as a way of treating constipation and soothing the digestive tract, thus showing positive benefits in combating Crohn"s Disease and Colitis. It can also assist in riding the system of intestinal parasites.
• With a little effort at first, the use of Organic Psyllium can become a routine part of daily life, and the long term benefits can be profound.
