Known in India as “Isabgol,” Psyllium grows in the cooler, dry northern regions of that country. It is the main ingredient in many fiber supplements such as MetamucilⓇ, and is also called “Horse Flower.” Psyllium is an example of an cherished Ayurvedic plant that has gained wide acceptance in Western medicine and healthcare.
Psyllium husk is a soluble fiber, meaning that it absorbs many times its weight in water, swelling into a gel-like mass. Because of this characteristic, it can be used in vegan baked goods as an egg replacement.
Psyllium Body and Mind Benefits
The benefits of dietary Psyllium have been confirmed by numerous studies — when the indigestible fiber turns to gel in the GI tract, it serves to regulate cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar levels. Because of this bioactivity, Psyllium is known to promote heart health and support healthy blood sugar levels. Because first-world diets generally lack optimal fiber, Psyllium is popular for increasing daily fiber consumption.
