Psyllium Powder: The Natural &
Healthy Regulator
Nowadays, it is much more popular for people to enjoy dietary fiber to support their health, by delivering essential nutrients to the entire body. In the market, it is common to find many commercial brands of fiber supplements that are loaded with artificial flavors, colors and fillers. So where is the 100% natural one?
It’s at Cactus Botanics – and it’s psyllium powder!
What is Psyllium Powder?
Psyllium Powder is derived from the husks of the seed of the Psyllium plant, also called ispaghula. It is rich in soluble fiber. Beneficial bacteria utilize soluble fiber to “fuel” the colon, helping to improve the body’s natural elimination process (defecation). The health of the colon, like all body systems, is dependent on energy. Psyllium also slows absorption of foods and holds water, supporting healthy, normally formed bowel movements.
How Psyllium Powder Works
Relieves constipation: Psyllium is a natural laxative. It means it can soak up water in your gut thereby facilitating bowel movements. It helps promote regularity without increasing flatulence. Psyllium husk powder can be used as a solution to ease constipation, or be added to the diet to help promote regularity and overall digestive health.
Healthy weight management: Psyllium powder can be helpful in maintaining and achieving a healthy weight since it encourages a feeling of satiety when it is consumed. Moreover, psyllium powder is capable of improving the body’s natural elimination process which supports healthy weight management, as waste matter is removed more quickly and regularly from the body.
Supports heart health: One study shows that at least six weeks of daily psyllium intake is an effective way for people who are obese or overweight to manage their cholesterol with very few side effects. In addition, numerous studies have shown that fiber like psyllium, taken as part of a healthy diet, can help lower a person’s risk of heart disease. Psyllium can support heart health by lowering blood pressure, improving lipid levels, and strengthening the heart muscle.
Other benefits:
★Maintains a healthy glycemic balance
★Suitable for vegans
