   IntroductionPsyllium husks are increasingly popular food supplements used for weight control and intestinal health. Basically, it’s a godsend for anyone who doesn’t get enough fibre from their diet!Psyllium is the husk of the seed from the Plantago plant – it contains a spongy fibre that reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system! When combined with water, pysllium husk forms a gel (that is naturally gluten free!) that can help to keep the bowels regular and is far more gentle – and natural – than using a laxative.Pysllium husk is often referred to as a colon cleanser, and as a by-product of this – a natural weight loss tool. Once taken, it will bulk and form a mass in the colon, as this is transported through the intestinal tract – taking waste with it – the
husks will ‘scrub’ the intestines clean as they move along.If taken before a meal, the husks will have time to expand giving a full feeling, helping to prevent overeating!Due to its bulking properties, psyllium husk can be a great aid for those seeking to lose weight. Taking it 30 minutes prior to a meal with a full glass of water allows the psyllium to expand, creating a full feeling!
This can help those with bigger appetites to consume less, which can help to instill a healthier relationship with food in the long term. Consuming less food long term will inevitably help your stomach to shrink in size, therefore it will eventually become natural to require less food to reach satiety – in addition to added benefits of lower cholestrol and blood pressure!Rocketing blood sugar levels can be dangerous for both those with and without diabetes – those without should be cautious not to develop diabetes. Introducing more soluble fibre into your diet can help reduce rises in blood glucose levels – specifically after meal times!How? Even though fibre is known as a dietary carbohydrate, it is not broken down by the body into sugar molecules, unlike other carbs! Instead, it passes through the body, assists the maintenance of satisfactory blood sugar levels and helps to keeps hunger at bay.Therefore, individuals who do live with diabetes, for example, could gain improved control over their blood sugar levels by increasing the amount of soluble fibre.DosageIt is advisable to build up the dose gradually to avoid adverse symptoms like bloating, wind and stomach cramps. Myprotein suggests adding 2.5g of Psyllium Powder to 300-350ml of water or fruit juice one or two times a day – these Psyllium Husks are available in 250g, 500g, and 1kg pouches, just in case you wish to test them out first!Due to the bulking nature of psyllium husks, it is essential to ensure you drink enough liquid as otherwise this product may swell up and could obstruct the throat. Psyllium husks are not advised for those who have ever suffered from oesophageal narrowing or swallowing difficulties.This natural source of soluble fibre offers an easy way to increase vital fibre intake, alongside a varied and balanced diet!
