What is Psyllium Husk?
Psyllium husk comes from the crushed seeds of the Plantago ovata plant, an herb native to parts of Asia, Mediterranean regions of Europe, and North Africa. The psyllium seed husks have been used in herbal remedies. Similar to oats and wheat, psyllium is rich in soluble fiber. Traditionally, psyllium husk is used as a gentle bulk-forming laxative for constipation.

3g to 12g (1 tsp = 4 grams) soluble fiber from psyllium seed husk when included as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease

Studies have shown that psyllium husk is effective in lowering total cholesterol and LDL (the Bad cholesterol) levels. Studies also found that a 1% reduction in total and LDL cholesterol can reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 2%.

We all know the benefits of fiber! Fiber not only promotes health, it also help reduce the risk for some chronic diseases. For instance, fiber prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulosis. Fiber is also linked to prevent some cancers especially colon and breast cancer. In addition, fiber may help lower the LDL cholesterol (the Bad cholesterol) and the total cholesterol therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. Furthermore, fiber can help lower blood sugar therefore help better manage diabetes.

• Food Sources of Soluble Fiber
• Green foods/herb powders
• Oat/Oat bran
• Dried beans and peas
• Barley
• Flax seed
• Fruits such as oranges and apples
• Vegetables such as carrots
• Whole-wheat products
• Corn bran
• Vegetables such as green beans, cauliflowers and potato skins
• Fruit skins and root vegetable skins

Other Benefits of Psyllium
Since psyllium husk is a type of fiber, it can alleviate constipation. In addition, recent studies also showed positive benefits of psyllium in IBD (Crohn's Disease and Colitis). Psyllium acts as prebiotics–aiding to heal the inner lining of the inflamed intestines.

Psyllium is very rich in soluble fiber. Therefore, we only need to eat a small serving to contribute the soluble fiber to help achieve the cholesterol-lowering effect. Standard preparations of psyllium are available in dry seed or husk form, to be mixed with water as needed. You will also find them in capsules. Warning: In general, prescription drugs should be taken one hour before or two hours after psyllium, because the absorption and effectiveness of many drugs may be reduced.

Benefits of FiberFiber are indeed undigested carbohydrates. Our enzymes are unable to break them down and therefore fiber are not absorbed into the bloodstream. Instead of being used for energy, fiber are excreted from our bodies.

Types of Fiber: Soluble Fiber and Insoluble Fiber

Both soluble and insoluble fiber are undigested. They are therefore not absorbed into the bloodstream. Instead of being used for energy, fiber is excreted from our bodies. Soluble fiber forms a gel when mixed with liquid, while insoluble fiber does not. Insoluble fiber passes through our intestines largely intact.

Insoluble Fiber
• Functions of Insoluble Fiber
• move bulk through the intestines
• control and balance the pH (acidity) in the intestines

Benefits of Insoluble Fiber
• promote regular bowel movement and prevent constipation
• remove toxic waste through colon in less time
• keep an optimal pH in intestines to prevent microbes from producing cancer substances; therefore preventing colon cancer

Soluble Fiber
Functions of Soluble Fiber
• bind with fatty acids
• prolong stomach emptying time so that sugar is released and absorbed more slowly

Benefits of Soluble Fiber
• lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the Bad cholesterol) therefore reducing the risk of heart disease
• regulate blood sugar for people with diabetes

Soluble or Insoluble fiber:
An average diet contains 75%:25% insoluble fiber: soluble fiber. When making a food choice decision, don't worry about choosing a specific type of fiber. Many foods such as oat, oat brans, psyllium husk and flax seed are rich in both insoluble and soluble fiber. Eating enough fiber is more important! The recommended intake of fiber is 25g per day. If you eat at least 5 servings of fruits & vegetables as well as at least 6 servings of grain products per day (at least 3 of which are whole grains), you are very likely meeting the fiber requirements.
