Psyllium Husk Powder from Now Foods is an excellent source of soluble fiber to help maintain regularity.
Surveys show that the American diet typically contains just around half of the recommended level of fiber.
Ground from the husk of blond psyllium seeds, Psyllium Husk Powder can be a convenient way to increase the intake of dietary fiber.
The husks contain 71 g of fiber per 1/3 cup, compared with 5 g of fiber per 1/3 cup for oats.
Psyllium can also swell up to 50 times its initial volume when added to liquid. This bulking action can play an important role in maintaining regularity and gastrointestinal health.
By absorbing water to perform a gel, for example, the fiber from Psyllium husks carries stool through the intestine, easing both diarrhea and constipation.
As Psyllium Husk Powder is finely ground, it disperses easily in liquid for convenient drinking.
