Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the Plantago and is a top herb used in weight control and for general intestinal health. Psyllium is quickly becoming very popular with people using low-carb Atkins-style diets. It is difficult to get enough fibre in a diet when you take out the carbohydrates in cereals, whole grains and fruits.
Psyllium capsules are an easy way to take care of this problem. It fills you with fibre and reduces your appetite without over stimulating your nervous system. It is a much healthier approach than formulas containing ephedra.
Psyllium has been used for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) which is a stress-related disorder with alternating bouts of diarrhoea and constipation).
Psyllium Husk will produce easy bowel movements with a loose stool, it is used by patients with anal fissures (cracks in the skin near the anus) and haemorrhoids and is often recommended following anal or rectal surgery. This can be during pregnancy and as a secondary treatment in certain types of diarrhoea.
