Psyllium husk comes from the crushed seeds of the plantago ovata plant. Psyllium husk is product mainly for its mucilage content. Psyllium is a natural, water soluble, gel-reducing fiber which is extracted from the husks of blond psyllium seeds (Plantago Ovata). Psyllium is a soluble fiber used primarily as a gentle bulk forming laxative. Psyllium husk is derived from these odorless, tasteless seeds. Psyllium contains up to 70% of soluble and 30% of insoluble fibers. Applications: Laxative: Psyllium husk (Plnatago ovata) is generally treated as laxative in the world market. Laxatives are food additives, which stimulate the bowel movement and facilitate excretory action in case of constipation. The swelling up of intestine due to bulk-forming laxative soften and increase the volume of the stools. This then encourages the bowel move and pushes the stool out. Weight Control: Psyllium mucilage absorbs water and expands substantially. In the stomach, Psyllium expansion produces feeling of fullness. This causes a decrease in food intake. Psyllium has no harmful chemical side effects; it is just an herb that is loaded with beneficial soluble fibre. Diarrhoea: Psyllium used as a bulk-forming agent to help relive mild to moderate diarrhoea. Psyllium soks a significant amount of water in the digestive tract circumstances, slower to pass.
