Looking to add soluble fiber to your diet? Support your intestinal system health with Psyllium Seeds.
Psyllium seeds include both the germ and the husk. (The husk contains most of the bulking mucilage and are most desirable for use as bulk laxative.)
- Supports the intestinal system.
- Is an excellent source of soluble fiber.
- Helps maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range.
How It Works:
Psyllium seeds are small and dull-colored, covered with a thin, white hull. They contain 10–30% mucilage. When placed in water, their outer walls swell to form a layer of mucilage around the seed. This mucilage may serve as a lubricant and help to cleanse the areas through which it passes. As an all-natural vegetable substance, psyllium’s purely mechanical action to promote colon health and provide pure bulk fiber in the diet is exceptional. Nature’s Sunshine offers the seeds in encapsulated form.
Take 2 capsules with at least 8 oz. water with a meal twice daily.
NOTE: May cause allergic reaction in persons sensitive to inhaled or ingested psyllium.
Psyllium seeds include both the germ and the husk. (The husk contains most
of the bulking mucilage and are most desirable for use as bulk laxative.)
The germ is nutritive and contains additional oils and protein-binding tannins.
The lubricating oils include linoleic, oleic, stearic and palmitic acids.
