Organic Psyllium: Lowers cholesterol levels and promotes toxin elimination

• An essential part of any detoxifying program
• Supports healthy blood sugar balance
• A rich source of water-soluble fibre that supports normal bowel function
• May promote weight loss by acting as an appetite suppressant
• Effective in lowering total cholesterol and LDL ("bad cholesterol") levels

What is Organic Psyllium and where does it come from?

Psyllium husks come from the crushed seeds of the Plantago ovata plant, an herb native to parts of Asia, Mediterranean regions of Europe, and North Africa. The psyllium seed husks have been used in herbal remedies and are similar to oats and wheat. 

Psyllium husks are pure dietary fibre, composed mostly of hemicellulose. Daily consumption of fibre can offer many health benefits and plays a crucial role in promoting the health of the colon. Fibre provides bulk, eases passage and helps to speed transit time through the digestive tract. It also aids in glucose absorption and may promote healthy cholesterol levels. Experts in the field of health and nutrition agree that adults should consume 25 to 30 grams of dietary fibre every day to maintain good health. 

Why should you take Organic Psyllium?

• Detoxifying properties: 
The jellylike mucilage produced when psyllium is soaked in water has the ability to absorb toxins within the large bowel. Psyllium is commonly taken to reduce autotoxicity (the toxins are expelled from the body with the husks and seeds).

• Colon Health: Several studies found that psyllium seeds relieved constipation when due to lifestyle factors (e.g., inadequate fibre, sedentary lifestyle). The fibre contained in Psyllium Husks are not digested in the small intestine, but are partially broken down in the colon, where they act as a food source for friendly flora. Traditionally, psyllium husk has been used as a gentle laxative for constipation, by acting as a sponge in the intestinal tract, swelling as it absorbs water and waste material in the bowels. This forms a soft, bulky mass that passes through the colon more quickly and evacuates more smoothly and easily. 

• Digestive Ailments: The soothing, protective effect imparted by the mucilage-rich husks and seeds benefits the whole gastrointestinal tract. Psyllium is taken for stomach and duodenal ulcers, and for acid indigestion.

• Cholesterol: The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved psyllium to reduce cardiovascular disease risk with recent studies confirming risk reduction. The question of how psyllium works to reduce cholesterol is still under investigation, but the authors propose that psyllium increase bile acid excretion and secondarily increase the excretion of cholesterol from the liver.

• Diabetes: Psyllium supplementation has also improved blood sugar levels in some people with diabetes. The soluble fibre component of psyllium is believed to account for this effect.

• Weight Loss: For people looking to lose weight, the inclusion of fibre, especially when eating meals high in saturated fats, may contribute to weight loss in two ways. The first way has to do with the ability of fibre to expand in the stomach, thus speeding the onset of satiety, and thus a decrease in the caloric mass of food eaten. The second way has to do with the ability of fibres to absorb macronutrients. When fibre absorbs fat molecules, the fat molecules are unable to be metabolised and thus pass through the body. This means, simply, that they fail to be stored as bodyfat. In a triple-blind study of "non-restrained eaters,", intake of psyllium husks were shown to cause a significant increase in the subjective feeling of fullness and a reduction in the consumption of fat and calories. The researchers concluded that psyllium could be useful in weight control diets.

Are there any side effects?

There are no side effects associated with Psyllium.
