About Organic India:
Organic India was the first company to produce and market organic psyllium. Organic India has advanced cleaning techniques that allow them to do what was once thought impossible - produce certified organic psyllium! They use a dry steam process to clean their organic psyllium. Conventional psyllium is commonly cleaned via a fumigation process using methyl bromide, then sterilized with ethylene oxide.Organic India uses organic crop rotation practices. Conventional crops are commonly rotated with castor, cumin, mustard, and wheat, which are treated with chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. These pesticides are hazardous to the health of farmers and increase chemical toxicity in soil, water and air. Every purchase of Organic India psyllium contributes to the sustainable livelihood of the family farmers we work with in India!
While conventional psyllium husk products offer fiber, most of these crops are grown on conventional industrialized farms that use pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, and post-harvest chemical treatments. ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium is 100% certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. No synthetic pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or treatments are used at any time.
About Organic India Whole Husk Psyllium:
Psyllium is the husk of the seed from the plantago plant. It contains a spongy fibre that reduces appetite and improves digestion. When combined with water, psyllium husk forms a gel that can help to keep the bowels regular and is far more gentle and natural than using a laxative. It’s also naturally gluten-free.
ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium is the seed husk of the herb Plantago ovata. Whole Husk Psyllium is a natural, bulk-forming dietary fiber.
Fiber is essential for a healthy body. In fact, most adults require 32 grams of fiber each day to maintain digestive health, regularity, a healthy weight, and most importantly, a healthy heart! However, most Americans only get about half this amount in their diet, and usually less.This lack of fiber in the typical American diet may contribute to the rising rates of heart disease, obesity, and digestive problems that plague the country. Taking a fiber supplement each day is the easy way to ensure you are getting all you need to maintain your health.
Health Benefits of Organic India Whole Husk Psyllium:
- Promotes Healthy Elimination and Regularity
- Contains both Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
- Supports the Entire Gastrointestinal System
- The soluble fiber from Psyllium, along with a healthy diet, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Role of Whole Husk Psyllium:
1) Assist Weight Loss Goals
Due to its bulking properties, psyllium husk can be a great aid for those seeking to lose weight. Taking it 30 minutes prior to a meal with a full glass of water allows the psyllium to expand, creating a full feeling. This can help those with bigger appetites to consume less, which can help to instill a healthier relationship with food in the long term. It may then eventually become natural to require less food to reach satiety – in addition to the added benefits of lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
2) A Great Natural Source of Fibre
Psyllium husks are an excellent source of fibre, with each teaspoon containing around 4g. Supplementation is an easy way to quickly boost your intake, especially if your diet leaves you lacking in fibre. For example, low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets often eliminate cereals, whole grains and fruits, meaning that the amount of dietary fibre consumed is greatly reduced.Busy lifestyles can often be the main cause of not getting enough fibre in the diet. Introducing psyllium husks into your diet may be able to help you with any fibre-related symptoms you may have. However, introduce fibre into your diet gradually, as adding too much fibre too quickly can result in bloating, stomach cramps and wind.Just for you, we’ve also put together a breakdown of the best fibre supplements.
3) Promotes Natural Bowel Movements
Bowel function is essential to avoid problems like constipation, and subsequently haemorrhoids, which can have a huge impact on how we feel on a daily basis. Psyllium husks in your diet can help to ensure that you get enough fibre, in order to keep your digestive system healthy. Not only can it relieve problems like diarrhoea, but it can also aid chronic illnesses like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
4) Prevents Discomfort and Sluggishness
A healthy bowel may not seem like a significant health priority to some, however, you’ll be surprised how many problems will disappear once you’ve sorted out your digestive problems.These problems could be the main issue for your fatigue, why you’ve been lethargic and even the main culprit for your lack of motivation. It’s important to keep ‘regular’ and our bodies require fibre to do so.
5) Helps Control Blood Sugars
Rocketing blood sugar levels can be dangerous for both those with and without diabetes – those without should be cautious not to develop diabetes. Introducing more soluble fibre, like psyllium husks, into your diet can help reduce rises in blood glucose levels, specifically after meal times. Strong scientific evidence shows that eating plenty of fibre is linked with having a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke
Even though fibre is known as a dietary carbohydrate, it is not broken down by the body into sugar molecules, unlike other carbohydrates. Instead, it passes through the body, assists the maintenance of satisfactory blood sugar levels and helps to keeps hunger at bay.Therefore, individuals that live with diabetes, for example, could gain improved control over their blood sugar levels by increasing the amount of soluble fibre
