Psyllium
Plantago psyllium
Uses: Medicinal
The importance of high fibre diets for health has boosted psyllium into “super food” status over the past two decades. Seeds and husks of this annual are valuable in the reduction of cholesterol and maintaining regular digestion. The fibre available in one tablespoon of psyllium husk is the equivalent of 14 tablespoons of oat bran. With adequate water intake, psyllium seed produces a mucilaginous coating that acts as a natural laxative. Its ability to absorb water and toxins from the digestive tract also makes it an effective treatment for diarrhea. Psyllium is preferred for treating digestive upset in children. It is helpful in weight loss programs by maintaining regular digestion, slowing the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, and creating a feeling of fullness. Psyllium is recognized by medical associations around the world as a valuable adjunct to therapies treating high cholesterol and diabetes.
