Health Benefits Provided By Psyllium Husk
Those who suffer from constipation or irregularity often turn towards Psyllium Husk for relief. The fiber works by absorbing water in the gut, ensuring that bowel movements pass easily. While supplementation for temporary issues is perfectly fine, many individuals frequently take Psyllium Husk in order to maintain their overall digestive health. Though unconfirmed, the liquid absorption and sense of fullness that Psyllium Husk often promotes might lead to weight loss as well.
Coupled with a low-fat diet, Psyllium Husk has also been shown to lower overall cholesterol. This is particularly important for individuals over 50, as the body's ability to regulate levels decreases with age. Research has suggested that as a direct result of lowered cholesterol, Psyllium Husk may also assist in strengthening the heart and lowering blood pressure.
