Psyllium Husks are pure dietary fibres that are not digested in the small intestine, but are partially broken down in the colon. They act as a sponge, absorbing water and waste material in the bowels. This helps to clear toxins, preventing them from staying too long in the colon. Generally, the fibre in our diet comes from wheat bran, which can be irritating to the sensitive walls of the bowel. As it is non-abrasive, psyllium is ideal for sensitive cell walls. Psyllium husks are very safe and are used by millions of people throughout the world as a natural alternative to some habit-forming laxatives.
Psyllium husks, or isphagula, are mainly grown in the Middle East and are full of fibre. Fibre is found in soluble and insoluble forms. Insoluble fibre remains unchanged when passing through the intestines, whereas soluble fibres change and form a gel-like substance within the intestines. Once digested it draws water in from the colon and pushes out waste from the colon. With today's modern lifestyles and diets, it can sometimes be difficult to obtain enough fibre from our food. As well as making sure we eat enough whole grains, fruits and vegetables, Solgar's Psyllium Husks Fibre can be a great way to top up your levels.
