Benefits of Psyllium Fibre


Psyllium seeds are generally consumed as a dietary supplement, often in the form of tarts. The body tolerates these fibres more easily and the health benefits are multiple.

 
  • Relieves constipation
Psyllium tarts increase stool bulk, which is useful in improving constipation. After 'binding' partially digested food, it helps water absorption and increases stool moisture. Unlike wheat tarts, psyllium tarts have a much better effect in terms of stool weight, texture and moisture.
 
  • Treats diarrhoea
Psyllium seeds have also proven effective in treating diarrhoea. The beneficial effect is due to the absorption of water and increased stool volume, slowing its passage through the colon. Psyllium seeds increase the emptying time of the stomach, which decreases the number of bowel movements.
 
  • Maintains blood sugar at normal values
The glycaemic response can be controlled thanks to fibre supplementation. Psyllium seeds are also useful for reducing blood sugar and insulin levels. Thanks to the gel that these fibres form, food digestion can be slowed down and blood sugar levels can be regulated.
 
  • Helps maintain an optimal body weight
Fibre - such as psyllium fibre - forms vascular compounds, which can help control appetite and lose extra pounds. Thanks to the fibre in psyllium seeds, emptying of the stomach is delayed and the feeling of fullness is prolonged by about six hours after they have been consumed.
 
  • Lower cholesterol levels
Fats and bile acids bind and are more easily eliminated when you eat psyllium seeds. The synthesis of bile acids is increased in people who consume these tarts, while cholesterol levels are reduced. Psyllium tartrates have also been shown to help increase good cholesterol levels.
 
  • Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease
Soluble psyllium fibre can reduce triglycerides, which helps lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Psyllium seeds also help reduce high blood pressure.
 
  • Have prebiotic effects
Prebiotics are non-digestible compounds that feed gut bacteria and help these bacteria thrive. Because they ferment more slowly than other fibres, psyllium seeds do not lead to digestive problems or gas. In patients with ulcerative colitis, after four months of psyllium treatment, symptoms were reduced by about 70 percent.
