What is Psyllium Fiber? Benefits, Usage, and More │ Metamucil

Much of the power of psyllium fiber comes from its resistance to absorption by the small intestine, which enables it to work with the body to provide its benefits throughout the digestive tract.5 Psyllium fiber can resist absorption because the human body cannot break it down. When it mixes with water it forms a gel in the body, increasing its volume by about 20 times that of the dry powder.6,8
Let’s break down how the psyllium fiber in Metamucil helps your body to provide its four main benefits:

Supporting digestive health**

Once in its gel form, psyllium achieves its laxative effects (these effects are not felt immediately) by retaining water in the intestines which helps soften stool.6,9–11 The increase in stool water changes the environment in the colon and makes it easier for your body to move waste through the digestive track to maintain regularity. 6,12 Through this process, psyllium helps trap and remove waste that weighs you down.*

Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels**

Psyllium fiber in the gut also can slow the entry of glucose into the blood following meals. As the sugars and carbohydrates from your food mix with the psyllium gel it slows their absorption, helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.*

Support heart health by lowering cholesterol†

Psyllium fiber gel in the gut also helps to trap bile and the cholesterol it contains inside the digestive tract, preventing it from being reabsorbed.14 Because this cholesterol stays within the digestive system, it’s removed from the body as waste, rather than being reabsorbed, helping lower cholesterol levels to promote heart health.†

Support appetite control**

By holding water and forming the gel in the digestive tract the psyllium fiber from Metamucil powders influences the time it takes for food to travel through the digestive system. This also enhances the feeling of fullness from the meals you eat, keeping us feeling fuller longer.13

FAQs For Healthcare Professionals. How Metamucil Works

1. What is the supplement ingredient in Metamucil?
The active ingredient in Metamucil is psyllium husk, a natural plant fibre that is a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre.

2. How much soluble fibre from psyllium husk is in a single serving of Metamucil?
Metamucil powder formulations deliver approximately 2.4 g of soluble fibre per serving. Metamucil capsules deliver 1.8 g of soluble fibre.

3. How are the types of fibre different?
Soluble fibres dissolve in liquid and insoluble fibres do not dissolve in liquid. Soluble fibre is further subdivided into viscous and non-viscous fibre. Soluble non-viscous fibres dissolve entirely in liquid and serve only to increase daily fibre intake with no additional health benefits at normal serving sizes.

Viscous soluble fibre (such as the kind in Metamucil) forms a viscous gel. Insoluble fibres do not form gels and move through the GI tract largely intact. Most fibres are exclusively soluble or insoluble but not a mixture of both types. Psyllium husk is unique because it is rich in viscous soluble fibre (70-80%) and insoluble fibre. In fact, psyllium husk is one of the highest naturally occurring sources of viscous soluble fibre. Both types of fibre are important to a healthy diet.

4. How does psyllium fibre help maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of my patients’ diet?*
Psyllium husk is a soluble viscous fibre that forms a viscous gel, which traps sugars as the gel moves through the intestines. Trapped sugars are slowly released and absorbed into the body helping maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

5. Do Capsules have the same benefits as other versions of Metamucil?
Metamucil Capsules, Powders, both contain psyllium husk. Please refer to their product detail pages for the details and benefits each product provides.

6. Why are so many Capsules required per serving?
Five Metamucil Capsules are approximately equivalent to one serving of Metamucil Powder. Depending on the benefits one wants to get from the product, one can use a different number of Capsules. For adding some dietary fibre to the diet, one can take as little as 2 Capsules per serving. For maintaining regularity or healthy blood sugar levels and helping to lower cholesterol, one will need more grams of soluble fibre from psyllium husk per serving. Please refer to serving information page for details.

7. How much sugar is in Metamucil products, and what effect would this have on a calorie-restricted diet?
Some powdered formulations of Metamucil contain sugar. Patients on a calorie-restricted diet should read the label to account for the calories per serving in Metamucil Powders (caloric content varies by specific product). There are, however, sugar free Metamucil Powders and Capsules that have fewer calories.

8. Are there any drug interactions or restrictions with Metamucil? 
Bulk fibres may affect how well other medications work. If your patients are taking a prescription medication by mouth, they should take Metamucil at least two hours before or two hours after the prescribed medicine.

9. What are the exact medications one should be careful to separate by the recommended two-hour period?
All oral prescription medications are covered by this label precaution. Healthcare professionals wanting further information should call 1800 028 280.

10. Why is the serving size different for some versions of Metamucil Powders?
All Metamucil powder products contain the same amount of psyllium husk per serving—which equates to 2.4 grams of soluble fibre. However, serving size amounts differ by version because the sweeteners and flavourings used in each Metamucil product vary in volume and density.

11. In what flavours/varieties/forms is psyllium available in fibre products from Meta?
Currently, Metamucil is available in both powder and capsule forms. 5 flavours are available: natural (no flavour), orange (smooth/granular), wild berry, lemon lime. There are sugar-free variants: Orange Smooth Sugar-Free, Wild Berry Smooth Sugar-Free, Lemon Lime Sugar-Free. See our product list for more details.

12. Can I use Metamucil in a nasogastric (ng) tube? In a gastric (g) tube?
No. The product should be used per the label directions.

13. Where can I find information on Metamucil sodium/potassium/calorie/carbohydrate/fat/phenylalanine levels per serving?
You can consult our dosage and serving information page or call 1800 028 280. If you choose to call, additional information is available on elements such as phosphorus and magnesium content.

14. Do Metamucil products contain gluten?
All Metamucil Powders and Capsules are gluten-free (less than 20 ppm). 

15. Which Metamucil products do not contain aspartame?
Metamucil Natural Granular Powder
Metamucil Orange Granular Powder
Metamucil Orange Smooth Powder
Metamucil Fibre Capsules

16. Which Metamucil has gelatin in it? Is it Kosher?
Metamucil Fibre Capsules contain gelatin. Metamucil has not gone through certification to be Kosher.

17. Does Metamucil cause diarrhea?
Unlike many other stimulant laxatives, osmotic laxatives, or mineral oil, Metamucil should not cause diarrhea when used as directed. On the contrary, Metamucil can absorb and retain water to make loose stools less watery. Many doctors believe that a bulk fiber can help make bowel movements more formed and less fluid. In at least eight studies done on Metamucil and psyllium (Metamucil’s fiber ingredient), psyllium was shown to improve viscosity of loose stools and make stools firmer.

18. Are there sugar-free options for my patients?
Yes, Metamucil offers Orange Smooth Powder, Berry Smooth Powder, and Lemon Lime Smooth Powder (all with aspartame). Metamucil Fibre Capsules do not contain any sugar, sweeteners, or artificial sweeteners.

19. Can psyllium cause an allergic reaction?
This product may cause an allergic reaction in people sensitive to inhaled or ingested psyllium.

Psyllium husk for constipation (Equate, Konsyl, Metamucil, Reguloid) | Medicine

About psyllium husk

Type of medicine A bulk-forming laxative
Used for  Constipation
Also called  Equate®; Konsyl®; Metamucil®; Reguloid®
Available as  Capsules, granules, liquid, powder

Constipation is a common problem which can be caused by a number of things. Not eating enough fiber or not drinking enough fluid can cause constipation. Some conditions (such as pregnancy) can cause constipation, as can a lack of exercise or movement (such as being ill in bed) and some medicines.

Often, increasing the amount of bran in your diet and drinking plenty of water each day can effectively prevent or relieve constipation. You will have been recommended psyllium husk (also known as ispaghula husk) to help relieve constipation if you cannot increase the amount of bran in your diet, or if this is insufficient. Psyllium husk, a laxative, works by increasing the bulk of your stools, which encourages your bowels to move the stools through your digestive system, which in turn relieves constipation.

Products containing psyllium husk are available on prescription, and can also be bought without a prescription at pharmacies and other retail outlets. Some combination products contain psyllium husk as an ingredient.

Before taking psyllium husk

To make sure this is the right treatment for you, ask for advice from a physician or pharmacist before you start using psyllium husk if any of the following apply to you:

  • If you are pregnant, trying for a baby or breastfeeding. This is because, while you are expecting or feeding a baby, you should only take medicines on the recommendation of a physician.
  • If it is for a child. This is because laxatives should only be given to children on the advice of a physician or healthcare professional.
  • If you have any difficulty in swallowing.
  • If you are so constipated that you think you may have a blockage.
  • If you are taking any other medicines. This includes any medicines you are taking which are available to buy without a prescription, as well as herbal and complementary medicines.
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medicine.

How to take psyllium husk

  • Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer’s printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about psyllium husk and how to take it. It will also provide you with a full list of the side-effects which you may experience.
  • Take psyllium husk exactly as your physician tells you to, or as directed on the pack. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for preparing a dose. For an adult, a dose of psyllium husk is taken once, twice or three times a day.
  • The powder or granules should be mixed into a full glass (8 ounces) of water or fruit juice before swallowing. Capsules should be swallowed whole with a full glass (8 ounces) of water.
  • It is best if you take your doses just after a meal. Never take a dose at bedtime.
  • If a physician has recommended psyllium husk for your child, check the label on the pack carefully to make sure that you give the correct dose for the age of your child. Remember to stir the powder or granules into a glass of water (8 ounces) before giving it to your child.
  • If you forget to take a dose, do not worry, just take the next dose when it is due. Do not take two doses together to make up for a forgotten dose.

Getting the most from your treatment

  • Sometimes it may take a few days before you feel the full benefit from a bulk-forming laxative such as psyllium husk. However, if after several days you do not feel that your symptoms are improving, or if they get any worse, you should speak with your physician.
  • It is important to drink plenty while you are taking psyllium husk. Adults should aim to drink at least two liters (65 ounces, or about 8 glasses) of fluid per day. Most sorts of drink will do, but as a start, try just drinking a glass of water 3-4 times a day in addition to what you normally drink.
  • Try to eat a balanced diet containing high-fiber foods such as wholemeal and wholegrain breads and cereals, fruit and vegetables, brown rice and wholemeal pasta. If you are not used to a high-fiber diet, it may be best to increase the amount of fiber you eat gradually.
  • Keeping your body active will help you to keep your digestive system moving, so try to take some regular daily exercise.
  • You may wish to include some foods that contain sorbitol in your diet. Sorbitol is a naturally occurring sugar. It is not digested very well and draws water into your bowel, which has an effect of softening stools. Fruits (and their juices) that have a high sorbitol content include apples, apricots, grapes (and raisins), peaches, pears, plums, raspberries and strawberries.

Can psyllium husk cause problems?

Along with their useful effects, most medicines can cause unwanted side-effects although not everyone experiences them. The table below contains the ones which sometimes occur with psyllium husk. You will find a full list in the manufacturer’s information leaflet supplied with your medicine. Speak with your physician or pharmacist if any of the following continue or become troublesome.

Psyllium husk side-effects What can I do if I experience this?
Mild allergic-type reactions such as nose or eye irritation, feeling short of breath, itchy skin Stop taking the medicine and speak with your physician or pharmacist for advice
Excess wind (flatulence), bloating, tummy (abdominal) discomfort As you become used to the extra fiber, these effects should settle down

If you experience any other symptoms which you think may be due to taking psyllium husk, speak with your physician or pharmacist for further advice.

How to store psyllium husk

  • Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children.
  • Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct heat and light.

Important information about all medicines

If you are due to have an operation or any dental treatment, tell the person carrying out the treatment which medicines you are taking.

If you buy any medicines, always check with a pharmacist that they are safe to take with your other medicines.

Never take more than the recommended dose. If you suspect that you or someone else might have taken an overdose of this medicine, go to the emergency room of your local hospital. Take the container with you, even if it is empty.

This medicine is for you. Never give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same as yours.

Do not keep out-of-date or unwanted medicines. Ask your pharmacist about ways to dispose of medicines safely in your local area.

If you have any questions about this medicine ask your pharmacist.

Difference Between Metamucil and Psyllium

Fiber is crucial in people’s everyday diets. Without it, issues of constipation, as well as other health issues, may arise. While fiber can be found naturally in food products, most people often need to supplement it. Eating high-fiber foods is one of the best ways to ensure you give your body sufficient fiber. Let’s look at some ways used to supplement fiber needs, Metamucil and Psyllium. 

What is Metamucil?

Metamucil is a supplement used to treat constipation, lower cholesterol and improve stool consistency. However, for it to treat constipation effectively, it has to be consumed with adequate fluids be it water or any other liquid preferred. Although it is well known for treating constipation, it can also be prescribed for supplementing dietary fiber and managing irritable bowel syndrome. 

It is available as a prescription or an over-the-counter medication. It is available in powder and oral capsules.  

What is Psyllium?

This is a natural dietary fiber prescribed for constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and dietary fiber supplementation. Psyllium husk is the source of insoluble and soluble fiber in Metamucil. However, the two work differently. With an origin from Plantago Ovata, psyllium fiber works by forming a gel once consumed. This gel then traps bile acids and excretes them from the body. The gel also traps sugars and carbohydrates. Due to its gelling property, psyllium helps people experience less hunger and promotes digestive health. It also helps to lower cholesterol and maintain optimal blood sugar levels. 

Similarities between Metamucil and Psyllium

  • Both provide the body with vital fiber supplementation
  • Both are categorized as laxatives

90,000 Benefits of psyllium husk and its use in cancer

Highlights

Psyllium husk supplements with a high soluble fiber content, which are commonly used as laxatives, may also have certain benefits in cancer patients, such as reducing diarrhea caused by radiation. Environmental research has also shown that the consumption of Plantago ovata (the plant from which psyllium fiber is extracted) can reduce colorectal cancer deaths, but more research is needed to confirm this.Several preclinical studies have also shown a synergistic / additive effect of psyllium husk and wheat bran in suppressing colon and breast cancer. However, there is also some evidence that high intakes of psyllium fiber supplements may increase the risk of colorectal adenoma recurrence in patients with high dietary calcium intakes. Hence, when it comes to cancer, accidental intake of supplements such as psyllium husk should be avoided and a personalized meal plan with the right foods and supplements should be made that can complement cancer treatment and stay safe.



What is psyllium husk?

Psyllium is a soluble fiber derived from the seeds of the Plantago ovata plant, an herb commonly grown in India and the Mediterranean region. The seeds are covered with psyllium husk, which is rich in soluble fiber. Up to 85% of the fiber in plantain is soluble dietary fiber.

Psyllium husk has a strong water-absorbing and gelling ability. The soluble fiber of psyllium husk can form a viscous gel in the intestines.Hence, it can act as a volume-forming laxative and is a key ingredient in some commonly used laxatives such as metamucil.

What are the health benefits of psyllium husk?

Psyllium is used as a dietary supplement and is available in various forms such as husk, capsule and powder. Below are some of the suggested uses and health benefits of psyllium / psyllium husk:

Treat Constipation: Psyllium husk fibers are commonly used to treat constipation because they increase stool volume, thereby causing bowel movement.In addition, the stool becomes softer and easier to come off.

Reduces bad cholesterol : Psyllium husk fiber is also used with statins to treat high cholesterol. A meta-analysis by the Mayo Clinic Foundation and Procter and Gamble Health Care in the United States showed that psyllium fiber can help lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol or bad cholesterol when taken with statins, which is almost equivalent to doubling a statin.dose. (Jose Bram et al., American Journal of Cardiology, 2018)

Lowering Blood Glucose and Insulin: Taking psyllium husk may help lower blood glucose (after meals) and insulin levels in type 2 diabetics.

Treat diarrhea: Due to their strong water-absorbing properties, psyllium husk fibers can increase stool thickness and slow down passage through the colon. Hence, taking fiber from psyllium husk can relieve diarrhea.

Lowering Blood Pressure / Hypertension: Psyllium supplements may help lower blood pressure in people with hypertension.

Weight Loss / Obesity: Consuming psyllium husk fiber can help reduce appetite, thereby contributing to weight loss and obesity reduction.

Psyllium husk may also have benefits in many other conditions such as:

  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • To reduce the side effects of the gastrointestinal tract from the Orlistat slimming drug.

Research related to the use of psyllium husk in cancer

Below are some of the clinical, observational and preclinical studies related to the use of psyllium husk fiber in cancer.

Metamucil containing psyllium husk fiber may reduce the incidence and severity of radiation-induced diarrhea

Researchers at the Ottawa Hospital in Ontario, USA, analyzed the results of 60 cancer patients who received pelvic radiation therapy for the presence of radiation-induced diarrhea. Of the 60 patients, 30 patients were also given metamucil, a bulking fiber-forming supplement with psyllium husk fiber as the main active ingredient.Their analysis showed that metamucil significantly reduced the frequency and severity of diarrhea. (J. Murphy et al., Can Oncol Nurs J., Summer 2000)

Consumption of plantain ovata may reduce mortality from colorectal cancer

Researchers at Complutense University in Spain conducted a comparative environmental study to determine mortality rates and prevalence of colorectal cancer in different provinces of Spain and to assess the relationship between consumption of Plantago ovata (from which psyllium is derived) and colorectal cancer mortality. Research has shown that consuming Plantago ovata reduces the risk of dying from colorectal cancer. However, more well-defined studies are needed to confirm these results. (Jose Carlos Lopez et al., J. Epidemiol., 2009)

Intake of psyllium seed powder can increase butyrate production

Butyrate may have the ability to inhibit the growth and spread of colorectal cancer cells. Butyrate, acetate and propionate are formed from the fermentation of dietary fiber in the colon.An interventional study conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark on 20 colon cancer patients undergoing surgery found that adding 20 grams of fiber from psyllium seed powder per day increased for three months. butyrate and acetate production, with butyrate concentration in faeces increased by 42%. (I Nordgaard et al, Scand J Gastroenterol., 1996)

Calcium and psyllium fiber supplementation does not reduce the risk of recurrent colorectal adenoma

A randomized interventional study of 552 patients with a history of colorectal adenoma, conducted by the European Organization for Cancer Prevention Research Group, showed that taking 3. 5 grams of psyllium husk fiber by mouth per day may not reduce the risk of colorectal adenoma recurrence. In addition, the study also found that fiber supplementation from psyllium husks may have adverse effects on recurrence of colorectal adenoma and may actually increase the risk of adenoma recurrence in patients with high dietary calcium intakes. (K. Boniton-Kopp et al., Lancet., 2000)

Consumption of Wheat Bran and Psyllium Husks May Increase Inhibition of Colon Cancer and Breast Cancer: Preclinical Study

  • In a preclinical study in rats, researchers at George Washington University found that consuming wheat bran (which contains insoluble fiber) and psyllium husk (which contains mostly soluble fiber) alone and more in combination can provide protection.Colon cancer promoted by high-fat, low-calcium diets. (O. Alabaster et al., Cancer Lett., 1993)
  • Another preclinical study conducted in rats by researchers at the American Health Foundation in New York showed that, compared to rats fed only wheat bran, rats who were fed a mixture of insoluble wheat bran fiber and soluble psyllium husk fiber in equal amounts of a high-fat diet provided the maximum tumor-inhibiting effect in a breast tumor model (breast cancer). (L.A. Cohen et al., J Natl Cancer Inst., 1996)

Conclusion

Nutritional supplements with psyllium husk fibers are used as a laxative to relieve constipation. They may also have certain health benefits for cancer patients, such as reduced diarrhea caused by radiation. An environmental study has shown that consuming Plantago ovata can reduce deaths from colorectal cancer, but more research is needed to confirm this.Psyllium husk may also have the potential to suppress colon and breast cancer when taken with wheat bran, as suggested by several preclinical studies. However, there is also some evidence that psyllium fiber supplementation may increase the risk of colorectal adenoma recurrence in patients with high dietary calcium intakes. Therefore, use psyllium husk supplements only after consulting your doctor.

Cancer patients often have to deal with various side effects of chemotherapy that affect their quality of life and seek alternative cancer treatments.Taking the right diet and science-based supplements (avoiding guesswork and random selection) is the best natural remedy for cancer and treatment-related side effects.


90,000 Frontier Natural Products, Psyllium Husk Powder, 16 oz (453 g)

There are must-haves, replacements … and there are (in my opinion) must-haves in every home! One such product is psyllium.

Read my review on soluble fiber.

Frontier Natural Products, Psyllium Hull Powder, 16 oz (453 g)

Description
Plantain, also known as plantain ovoid, is a low growing plant typical of Iran, Pakistan and India. It is the main ingredient in the commercial nutritional supplements Metamucil and Citrucel. Not exposed to radiation. Kosher product
In 2 tsp (5g) contains 20 calories, 5g carbohydrates, 4g fiber, 5g Psyllium, powder (seed husk)

Psyllium.What is it?
Behind this mysterious word hides a natural product – powder from the husk of Indian plantain seeds. This is not the weed, the leaves of which we applied to the wounds in childhood, but its relative, a valuable medicinal plant.

The main advantage of psyllium powder is that it consists of 80-85% fiber, 75% of which is soluble (it turns into a soft gel in water).
Soluble fiber perfectly normalizes the digestive tract, improves digestion, slows down the digestion and absorption of fats and carbohydrates, lowers cholesterol and normalizes blood sugar.Serves as a breeding ground for beneficial intestinal microflora, reduces fat absorption, and also captures and removes accumulated toxins and toxins from the body. Helps with both constipation and diarrhea.
Helps with gastrointestinal diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis. Passing through the digestive tract, it envelops the walls of the digestive tract and promotes the healing of wounds and erosions in it.
When taken regularly, psyllium can relieve bloating, flatulence, discomfort, and abdominal pain.

By the way, oat and wheat bran contain only 15% fiber, of which only 5% is soluble. Insoluble fiber is not broken down by the digestive system, but traps our waste products and removes them from the body. There are almost no digestible carbohydrates in psyllium, while other bran contains up to 60% of them.

And what do they eat it with?
Psyllium powder does not have its own specific taste and smell, so it is a pleasure to use it and add to food.
The main culinary property of psyllium is its ability to absorb moisture and turn into a gel-like mass, only 1 gram of psyllium powder can absorb up to 45 ml of water! That is, it is a great thickener.

~ I definitely add psyllium to all baked goods and minced meat dishes (meatballs, cutlets, stuffed peppers, etc.). It perfectly holds and thickens dough and minced meat and gives them a porous airy structure. What cutlets are obtained with him, om-nom-nom, I especially respect from the oven, and so that they are shiny on top (I coat it with an egg).The cutlets are incredibly super juicy, and the pastries are tender, porous, like yeast.

~ I also use psyllium wherever I need to thicken: gravies, sauces, soups (yes, I can add a little there for a change).

~ when late I want to chew something, I add a spoon to Activia or kefir, let it stand for a couple of minutes and eat thick yogurt with a spoon. But the main thing here is not to overexpose in time, otherwise you will not get thick yogurt, but a rubbery something into which a spoon will not stick.

~ It is sooooo good to drink a glass of water with a spoonful of psyllium for healthiness and reduce hunger.

~ my child is prone to constipation from birth, you can’t force him to drink a glass of water with psyllium, but who’s stopping to add it to a milkshake and yoghurt? It turns out thick, tasty, satisfying and healthy.

Now psyllium is my indispensable assistant in the kitchen, but I do not forget about its useful properties.
Children and the elderly often suffer from (sorry) constipation, and psyllium can easily relieve them, those who monitor their weight and health need it too.A very, very useful product in all respects!

And a couple more tips: never take psyllium dry. Only in water or food.
When adding psyllium to the dough, let it stand for 15-20 minutes so that it absorbs moisture, swells and you can evaluate the consistency of the dough. If too thick, add liquid.

I’ve been buying Source Naturals psyllium for over a year and have been happy with it. Once again, it was not in stock and I bought it from Frontier. The latter turned out to be of a finer grind and of a different color.
When mixed in water, Source Naturals gells well, but leaves visible grains – insoluble fiber, Frontier dissolves completely. That is, the% of soluble fiber in the latter is higher and, accordingly, the quality is also higher. For the price, even without a discount, Frontier turns out to be cheaper, but now with a discount, so in general beauty!

If you have never bought psyllium before – give it a chance, I am sure that you will definitely find a use for it and will be delighted with it.

Thank you for your attention and hearts. Be healthy and beautiful!

I won’t even sign where some psyllium, and so everything is visible.

What is psyllium husk?

The shell of psyllium or isphagula is a seed cover grown on the plant Plantago Psyllium , which thrives in the Middle East.Psyllium shell has long been recognized as an excellent means of getting more fiber in the human diet due to its high fiber content compared to other grains. Oat bran, also a good source of fiber, contains about five grams of fiber in a third of a cup. On the other hand, psyllium husks offer roughly 71 grams of fiber for the same third of a cup.

This heavy dose of dietary fiber makes psyllium husks the choice of many who make nutritional supplements and powders such as metamucil.For those suffering from constipation or diarrhea, an appropriate daily intake of dietary fiber can help improve these conditions. As psyllium husk travels through a person’s digestive tract, it absorbs water but is not digested. This leads to the fact that the stool becomes more voluminous, but also softer, which leads to fewer problems in passing the stool.

Although most associate psyllium husk with improved digestion, clinical studies on isphagula have also shown it to be beneficial in lowering blood cholesterol.Of course, cholesterol levels are more likely to be reduced when combined with a low-fat diet. However, even on a high-fat diet, psyllium husks, when taken regularly, reduce low-density lipoproteins, known as “bad cholesterol,” by about 7%.

Some studies also suggest that regular use of psyllium husk supplements can help pass more fat into the feces, leading to weight loss. Other research suggests that psyllium husks can also help lower blood sugar levels.These studies are still in their infancy and have yet to prove that psyllium husks can be useful in these relationships.

It is important to be careful with psyllium. Some complain of bloating or gas when using the product for the first time. Most doctors suggest working a few weeks before a full dose of this dietary fiber. Early reactions may include diarrhea and flatulence.

Some people are severely allergic to psyllium husk.This is especially true for those who process large amounts of psyllium husks to formulate laxatives.
