Enriched with stevia for taste, this bulk-forming laxative is high in both fibre and mucilage. Hydrated husks swell, forming a gelatinous mass that keeps feces hydrated and soft. The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel for a laxative effect.
|Each vegetable capsule contains:|
|Psyllium (Plantago ovata) husks||620 mg|
|Other ingredients: Inulin and Stevia rebaudiana leaf in a non‑GMO vegetable capsule composed of vegetable carbohydrate gum and purified water.|
Enriched psyllium husk is an excellent source of fibre. It purifies and decontaminates, and is 100% natural. Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative and is high in both fibre and mucilage; psyllium seeds contain 10–30% mucilage. The laxative properties of psyllium are due to the swelling of the husk when it comes in contact with water; this forms a gelatinous mass that keeps feces hydrated and soft, provided it is taken with sufficient water. The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel, followed by emptying.
100% psyllium husk, partially ground, and enriched with prebiotics eliminates toxins and waste from the gastrointestinal system slowly as it supplies healthy fibres.
Inulin feeds the probiotic bacteria population in the colon, which in turn contributes to human health in many ways. Inulin is good for proliferation of bifidobacteria and reduction of detrimental bacteria, reduction of toxic metabolites and detrimental enzymes, prevention of pathogenic and autogenous diarrhea, prevention of constipation, protection of liver function, reduction of blood pressure, and production of nutrients.
Psyllium husk is excellent for softening the stool, preventing constipation as well as hemorroids and colitis.
