Source Naturals Psyllium Husk Powder  12oz. (340 g)

Source Naturals Psyllium Seed Husk Powder is an excellent, low caloric source of soluble dietary fiber. Consumption of seven or more grams of soluble fiber from Source Naturals Psyllium Seed Husk Powder per day from Source Naturals Psyllium Seed Husk Powder in association with a diet low in saturated fats and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Source Naturals Psyllium Seed Husk Powder uses only the husk of the seed, as it is a much better fiber source than the whole seed.

Where is Psyllium Used and Grown?
Psyllium is native to Iran and India and is currently cultivated in these countries. The seeds are primarily used in traditional herbal medicine. Psyllium seed husks are mainly used to treat constipation.

Source Naturals Psyllium Husk Powder Benefits
Psyllium is quickly becoming one of the top recommendations for people using low-carb Atkins-style diets. It is very difficult to get enough fiber in a diet when you eliminate the carbohydrates in cereals, whole grains and fruits. Source Naturals Psyllium Husk Powder is an easy way to take care of this problem. It fills you with fiber, reducing appetite without overstimulating the nervous system; a much healthier approach than formulas containing ephedra such as Herbalife or Metabolife.

Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the Plantain and is a top herb used in weight control and for general intestinal health. It contains a spongy fiber that reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system, making it an excellent choice for healthy dieting. Psyllium can provide the fiber that is missing on low carbohydrate diets. Every 100 grams of psyllium provides 71 grams of soluble fiber; a similar amount of oat bran would contain only 5 grams of soluble fiber. Only recently have scientists learned that soluble fiber has unique effects on metabolism. Source Naturals Psyllium Husk Powder is one of the simplest, healthiest and most effective herbs for weight control.

Psyllium has also been used for irritable bowel syndrome (a stress-related disorder with alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation). Because it will produce easy bowel movements with a loose stool, Psyllium is used by patients with anal fissures (cracks in the skin near the anus) and hemorrhoids and is often recommended following anal or rectal surgery, during pregnancy and as a secondary treatment in certain types of diarrhea.

Psyllium soaks up a significant amount of water in the digestive tract, thereby making stool firmer and, under these circumstances, slower to pass. Psyllium also has the additional advantages over other sources of fiber of reducing flatulence and bloating. It may be recommended by a physician to help soften stool and reduce the pain associated with hemorrhoids.

In a study of people with ulcerative colitis (a type of inflammatory bowel disorder), psyllium seeds were as shown to be as effective as the prescription drug mesalamine in decreasing recurrences of the disease. In addition, a physician may recommend the use of psyllium as a bulking agent for mild to moderate cases of diarrhea from either ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease (another type of inflammatory bowel disorder).

Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.

Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.

It works. Take it every day to be cured of a multitude of discomforts. I like to use a hand-held drink blender to prepare my daily beverage. My favorite recipes so far are to mix with a can of V-8 Juice, or two big spoonfuls of plain yogurt and then fill the glass with orange juice.

I take this product every day. Just 1 teaspoon mixed with an 8 to 10 oz. glass of water does the trick. I prefer the powder version over the straight up husks version because it is smoother and easier on the digestive tract.

Psyllium Husk is a great way to thicken anything - from pancakes to muffins to oatmeal etc. It soaks up and becomes VERY gooey, similar to soaking flax seeds in water overnight. It's almost like gelatin, which isn't so bothersome as much as the taste. A little goes a long way (it's loaded with fiber!) but you certainly need some stevia, vanilla extract, or something else that's strong in flavor to mask it.
