Psyllium contains mucilage which swells with water, providing the benefits of fibre for helping to maintain healthy bowel function and normal elimination.
Psyllium swells in water and can be difficult to take for those that have swallowing difficulties. This supplement is ideal for the elderly, dieters and those who wish to increase their dietary fibre intake.
We recommend taking Psyllium with a zinc supplement such as Zinc Absorb. Zinc supports immune function and uptake of electrolytes, thus helps maintain bowel function.
Psyllium is also available in Powder form.
At the time of manufacture each capsule contained: Psyllium 450mg (with a fibre content of approximately 80%). This product contains encapsulating aids.
Adults: Take 1-3 capsules two to three times daily, followed by two to three large glasses of water, or as professionally recommended. Take especially when fibre is low in the diet, or during a cleansing programme.
Seek professional health advice if pregnant, lactating, suffering from a medical condition or taking medication before supplementing. In rare cases, this herb may cause an allergic reaction in susceptible individuals.
