Peak Psyllium (500g)
Psyllium husk is a popular fiber found in numerous name-brand products on the market today. It is a plant-source fiber that greatly increases in size when combined with fluid. This plant material is added to a wide range of mainstream, over-the-counter laxatives. One of the chief benefits of psyllium is that it's not a stimulant laxative. In fact, it isn't really a laxative at all but a pure source of fiber that swells in size to create extra bulk for waste within the digestive tract. This bulk communicates fullness of the intestines, notifying the intestinal nerve and muscle groups to contract and permit a bowel movement. This form of fiber is also beneficial because it's able to absorb toxins within the colon and extract them with waste matter.
Psyllium husk may also be purchased as prepackaged fiber supplements available at most health food stores. Most fiber supplements containing this herb also contain other forms of fiber to enhance the benefits of psyllium. Psyllium can be added to water or juice.
