Why is Psyllium Husk effective for bowel problems?


-The husk swells when it comes in contact with water. It can absorb anything that is 8-16 times its weight. Its bulky fiber qualities makes it an effective laxative. Psyllium Husk forms a gelatin-like mass in the colon, which keeps the bowels nice and soft. This mass also helps absorbs toxins located in our bowels.

1. Make sure you consume it with liquid. Do not eat it alone as it can cause digestive problems. You can mix Psyllium Husk with practically anything: fruit/veggie juice, stew, soups, ice cream shakes, water, milk, etc.

2. Make sure you consume plenty of liquid before and afterwards. Psyllium Husk can cause dehydration since it makes the moisture content of our bowels higher. It would be good to keep an extra glass of water when consuming Psyllium Husk for the first time, because it can be hard to swallow.
