Why Psyllium Husk Powder is Necessary to Our Diet?

    Just when we think we know all about fibre, it's cooler cousin psyllium comes onto the scene with much 

buzz. People say it's the only thing we should be eating and tout it's life-saving qualities, but what’s the real 

deal, psyllium? What are your intentions and what do you actually do? In partnership with Kellogg's* 

All-Bran*, we figure it out.

    Psyllium comes from the husk, the outer shells of seeds from a shrub-like plant called plantago ovata that’s

 native to India. It's been been used for centuries and is trusted in traditional and herbal medicine. It works as 

a gentle laxative and helps treat irregularity.

    For digestion and bowel issues, it’s a superstar. It boasts both types of fibre – soluble for softening stools 

and insoluble for adding bulk to them.

    The benefit of this type of fibre goes beyond your bowels. When it comes to reducing total cholesterol 

(one of the fats contained in blood), especially the nasty LDL kind, psyllium has been proven beneficial.

    Researchers say that psyllium fibre works like a smart broom, sweeping cholesterol from the body before 

it has a chance to cause problems. The latest studies are looking at its role in managing diabetes as some data 

indicates it has glucose reducing properties.

    There’s also a solid body of evidence that indicates the kind insoluble fibre in psyllium helps those trying to

 lose a few pounds. It helps keep hunger at bay by creating a sense of fullness longer. Consider starting your 

day off right with a fibre-rich cereal for breakfast to tame snacking urges that may hit later on.
