Healthy Bowels Whole Psyllium Husks (300g)

Fibre is not only good for our bowel health, it can also help keep our hearts healthy and our blood sugar more stable.

We are constantly being told that we must eat more fibre and in particular, soluble fibre. In the US they are now recommending we consume 35 grams of fibre per day. The fact is that most of us eat far less than this.

In rural Africa, where far higher levels of fibre are consumed than in the west – their average daily intake is estimated to be 55 g per day – bowel disease is virtually unheard of.

There are 2 main types of fibre, soluble and insoluble. It is the soluble fibre that is attracting more attention these days because it can be so beneficial for our general well-being as well as bowel health. The reason for this is that soluble fibre, when mixed with water, forms a type of ‘goo’ which is very viscous by nature. It is this characteristic which helps to prevent waste matter in the bowels from drying up, thus making it easier to pass.

Psyllium Husks and Oat fibre are useful types of fibre because they are so soluble by nature.

The ‘gooey’ effect of soluble fibre also makes it useful for our general well-being as well as bowel health. The gel the fibre forms in the gut also delays the absorption of sugar from food and this may be beneficial to Diabetics.

    Features

    • Gluten Free
    • Wheat Free
    • Phytate Free
    • Dairy Free
    • Suitable for Diabetics

    Features

    • Healthy Heart: Soluble fibre may also help keep your heart healthy as well! Studies in the US have shown that soluble fibre, when used as part of a diet low in fat, may reduce the risk of heart disease by reducing the levels of cholesterol absorbed.
    • Pure fibre, no additives: If it is just the extra fibre you want then Psyllium on its own is an easy way to take in that extra fibre most of us need. Psyllium is perhaps the most soluble fibre in the world today as it absorbs more than 25 times its own weight in water. This makes it the most "gooey" type of fibre on the market making it an ideal bowel "cleanser". Taking pure Psyllium Husks in water is perhaps the easiest way of taking in extra fibre and it is particularly useful if you are trying to avoid wheat.
    • 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 to be too abrasive. Psyllium husks are totally natural and safe. They are used by millions of people each year throughout the world. They are not absorbed by the body, do not stimulate in any way, and are non habit forming. They are therefore suitable for prolonged use.

    IBS cure

    Review posted on 29 Apr 2014

    I have had Irritable and Overactive Bowel Syndrome since my late teens and have never been able to find anything to help or combat the effects of foods that irritated me such as Wheat and Dairy. When I was advised by a friend to try Psyllium husk I didn't know how it would help as it seemed to be completely contrary to everything I'd ever been told by the Doctors but now that I take this daily I can eat Wheat, which means bread, pasta, cakes and pastries for the first time in nearly 20 years! This eliminates all the issues I have suffered in the past and I would thorougly recommend it as a supplement to a healthy diet.
