Psyllium husks are the outer shell parts of the Psyllium plant (Plantago ovata Forssk.). The Psyllium plant is mainly grown in the northeastern part of India, where it thrives in the hot and dry dessert climate without the use of pesticides and fertilizers.
Psyllium husks contain approx. 85% fibres and are difficult to digest. The many fibres of the Psyllium husks are water-soluble and absorb much water (see: How do Psyllium husks work?). The high water-solubility is one of the factors contributing to the intestinal regulating effect.
How they Work
Daily intake of fibres is health beneficial and may have a regulating effect on the gut.
When you take SylliFlor together with liquid, the Psyllium husks swell. In fact, they swell and bind approx. 40 times their own weight in water.
The Psyllium husks and water form a jelly-like mass, which provides fullness in stomach and intestines, stimulates bowel movements, and helps in a smooth and regular passing of stools
In addition, the dietary fibres of the Psyllium husks contain some slimy mucilage forming substances with a lubricating effect. Combined, this results in soft stools that pass easily through your intestinal tract.
