Use for occasional constipation and maintaining regularity. Psyllium husk is the covering of seeds grown on the Plantago ovata plant. This dietary fiber works by helping to create a bulkier, softer stool that passes more quickly through the colon.*
Promotes a feeling of fullness. Psyllium is rich in the gelatinous, water-absorbing substance called mucilage. It has the ability to absorb 10-50 times its weight in water, which contributes to a subjective feeling of fullness. Studies show it may help reduce the consumption of fat and calories, and may contribute to weight loss.*
Helps cleanse the bowel. Psyllium's water-absorbing properties help sweep waste out of your colon.*
3 grams of healthy fiber per teaspoon. Psyllium husks are about 50-55% soluble fiber (2 grams) with the remainder insoluble fiber (1 gram). The soluble fiber portion absorbs water and provides the majority of its beneficial actions. Use every day to help maintain regularity.*
