VitaDigest Psyllium Husks come from the seeds of the Plantago ovata plant, also known as blond psyllium. Each teaspoon of psyllium husk contains a staggering 5g of fibre, which is around 15% of your daily fibre requirements and the equivalent of 200g steamed broccoli.
Whilst psyllium husk is not an obvious supplement to support your health and performance goals, this soluble fibre packs an array of health benefits which are likely to surprise you regardless of your goals. Whether you’re looking to shred body fat or simply just improve your overall health.
Healthy bowel function is essential for optimal health and to avoid gastrointestinal issues such as constipation and subsequent haemorrhoids.To this end, VitaDigest Psyllium Husks capsules have been demonstrated to provide a clear laxative effect and help to improve the regularity of the bowel and are highly recommended for those suffering with chronic constipation. When compared with other dietary fibre sources, psyllium appears to be one of the most effective for bowel-related issues whilst also being associated with fewer side-effects such as bloating and gas.
This “gentle on the body” product is fast become one of the most sought after dietary supplements, being very popular with individuals on low-carb diets. Whilst a sustained negative energy balance (sustained periods of time eating fewer calories than used by the body) is fundamental for weight loss, the high fibre content of the VitaDigest Psyllium Husks can be a great tool to have in your weight loss belt as its addition has been demonstrated to help slow the digestion of food within the stomach and increase feelings of fullness following a meal.
Controlling blood sugar levels is essential for good health. Adding VitaDigest Psyllium Husks to the diet has been shown to control spikes in blood sugar following a meal by reducing the rate of carbohydrate absorbed. This helps to reduce the common energy crash following a meal.
The gel-like fibre created when psyllium absorbs water may also play an important role in lowering our “bad” LDL (low-density lipoproteins) cholesterol without having any effect on our ”good” HDL (high-density lipoproteins) cholesterol via a similar mechanism to that of cholesterol-lowering drugs. This mechanism involves psyllium binding to bile acids in the gut and preventing their re-absorption.
VitaDigest Psyllium Husks provide a great source of soluble fibre and can provide an array of health benefits ranging from weight loss to improvements in cardiovascular and digestive health. So, regardless of your goal, VitaDigest Psyllium Husks can offer an inexpensive and efficient way to support a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
