BIO Psyllium is a soluble fibre that is important for proper digestion. It is obtained from a plant called blond plantain and is especially popular among people who have digestion problems or want to promote weight loss. Fibre has an important function in the body. It acts as food for healthy bacteria (prebiotics), which are essential for the proper functioning of the intestines.
BIO Psyllium - soluble fibre important for the proper functioning of the intestines and digestive system
BIO Psyllium is a gluten-free soluble fibre obtained from the seeds of blond plantain (Plantago ovata) in BIO quality. The seeds are hulled and then ground into powder. In our intestines, soluble fibre serves as a prebiotic, or food to support growth of healthy bacteria living in our digestive tract. You may also know these microorganisms as probiotics.
After eating or drinking, psyllium passes through the entire digestive tract. After mixing with the liquid, it forms a gel that can increase its volume several times. This slows down the emptying of the stomach, which is great, especially for people who are trying to lose weight and look for highly saturated foods. In addition, the gel binds harmful substances to itself, which helps to get away from the body by excretion. Moreover, psyllium is not the only source of soluble fibre. You can also find it in fruits, vegetables, legumes, or nuts.
Since fibre is important for proper digestion, it should be a regular part of each person's healthy diet. People who suffer from digestion problems, such as diarrhoea or constipation, should focus more on its intake. Psyllium is a great way to consume the amount of fibre you need. Its use is very easy. You can simply mix it with water or another liquid and drink it. It can also be added into your yogurt, smoothies, porridge, or any other of your favourite dishes, which you will enrich with fibre.
