Now Foods Psyllium Husk Powder 12 Oz

Psyllium husk is a type of soluble fiber derived from the husks of the seeds of the Plantago ovata plant. It is often used as a natural laxative and has a number of other potential health benefits. One of the main reasons people take psyllium husk is for its ability to relieve constipation. It works by absorbing water in the intestine and forming a gel-like substance that helps to bulk up the stool and make it easier to pass. This can help to reduce the discomfort associated with constipation and promote regular bowel movements. In addition to its use as a laxative, psyllium husk may also be taken to help lower cholesterol levels and manage blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Some research suggests that it may also help to reduce the risk of heart disease and support weight loss efforts.
