Psyllium Husk is a gluten-free, edible 70% soluble and 30% insoluble fibre that can be also be used in baking. It acts as a gentle laxative, maintains healthy blood sugar levels and helps regulate cholesterol.
Psyllium passes through the small intestine without being completely absorbed. Instead, it absorbs water and becomes a viscous compound that benefits constipation, blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol.
Benefits of Psyllium Husk:
