Psyllium Husk Powder is made from the seeds of ‘Plantago ovata’, which provides them with an outer coating extremely rich in both soluble and insoluble fibres. Fibre has been proven to increase satiety as well as being essential for healthy digestion, yet it is surprisingly common for many diets to be lacking this component. Sevenhills Wholefoods’ Psyllium Husks themselves are a highly concentrated source of fibre, and when ground into powder form, they are made extremely easy to supplement with. Psyllium’s soluble fibre contributes to maintaining healthy cholesterol and insulin levels, whereas its insoluble fibre acts mostly as a stool softener and laxative. Studies and clinical reports suggest that Psyllium may enhance the sensation of fullness and reduce hunger cravings. In addition to improving digestion and cleansing the intestinal system, for these reasons incorporating Psyllium and other sources of fibre into the diet may aid weight loss. Our customers have also taken Psyllium Husk Powder in the past to help maintain normal blood pressure, transport oxygen around the body more efficiently, and for its key effect on the regulation of stable hormonal activity. We recommend adding 1 teaspoon to water, juice or a smoothie. Stir/shake and consume, once or twice daily.

I bought this as an experiment. A pack will last a long time as I only use a teaspoon at a time in a glass of water flavoured with lemon juice. As it swells, I thought the bulk might help to keep me feeling full while trying to lose weight. Not sure about that, but it's good at keeping your bowels moving in a gentle way. I'm going to continue using it.
