Fibre and Your Health: A well balanced diet with the correct levels of fibre will stimulate proper elimination. This is necessary for the digestive system to work effectively and to ensure that the body can absorb all the nutrients it needs from foods. Fibre helps to improve the transit of waste products which in turn can help overall health.
A good source of soluble fibre: Psyllium husks absorb 20 times their own weight in water. The result is a soft gel which continues to absorb in the intestinal tract. This helps to clear toxins and prevents them from staying too long in the colon.
Sensitive Bowels: Psyllium husks are an ideal source of fibre for those that have an intolerance to wheat. They can have a soothing effect on sensitive bowels where fibre from wheat can prove too abrasive. Psyllium husks are totally natural and safe, are not absorbed by the body, do not stimulate in any way and are non habit forming. They are suitable for prolonged use.
Not suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
