Psyllium Seed Husks or psyllium, are portions of the seeds of the plant Plantago Ovate, a native of India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Psyllium seed husk are indigestible and are a source of soluble dietary fiber. They are used to relieve constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea. They are also used as a regular dietary supplement to improve and maintain regular gastrointestinal transit.
The inert bulk of the husk helps provide a constant volume of solid material irrespective of other aspects of the diet or any disease condition of the gut. Some recent research has shown that they may be effective in lowering cholesterol and controlling certain types of diabetes. Other uses include gluten-free baking, where ground psyllium seed husks bind moisture and help make breads less crumbly. The husks are used whole in their natural state, or dried and chopped or powdered for easier consumption. In either of these forms, one takes them by mixing them with water or other fluids.
Research reported in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concludes that the use of soluble-fiber cereals is an effective and well-tolerated part of a prudent diet for the treatment of mild to moderate Hypercholesterolemia Soluble fibers such as those in psyllium husk, guar gum, and oat bran have a cholesterol-lowering effect when added to a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet. Proper cholesterol regulation is important for everyone, but vital for people over the age of 50.
The husks may also be combined with other ingredients. For example, Green Hills Organics Blackstrap molasses is sometimes used with psyllium seed husks for its high mineral and vitamin content, as well as being an excellent carrier. A typical dose is one to three teaspoons per glass of water.
Add psyllium husk to your breakfast cereals, smoothies, yogurts, fruit juices or soups and stews for added dietary fibre. Psyllium husk mixed with cereal is also great added to muffins, cookies and loaves, sprinkled in your salads or as a replacement for breadcrumbs in meat loaf or hamburger patties
Psyllium husk will keep for up to 24 months when stored in an airtight container.
