The herbal medicine HUSK Psyllium-husk is available both as powder and in vegetable capsules.
HUSK Psyllium-husk is approved by the Danish Medicines and Health Authority as herbal medicine for relieve of constipation, diarrhoea, IBS and elevated cholesterol levels. The beneficial effect comes from the Psyllium husks from the Indian plant Plantago ovata Forsk. The product is all natural and contains no additives – the only ingredient is the fibre rich Psyllium husks containing 85 % fibres.
How do Psyllium husks work?
Plant fibres from Psyllium husks are difficult to digest, and this is actually an advantage to your stomach. Instead of being digested the fibres remain in the intestines, absorbing fluid and increasing in volume. This increases the volume of the intestinal content and at the same time the water content softens the stool. The fibres:
• stimulate the natural movements of the large intestine, giving the intestines something to work with
• secrete vegetable mucus, lubricating the intestines
• increase the quantity of beneficial bacteria in the intestine, improving digestion
When you eat HUSK® Psyllium-husk the fibres keep your digestion fit and relieve constipation, diarrhoea and IBS, a painful condition with alternating hard and liquid stool.
Many women experience problems with digestion during their pregnancy. Taking HUSK® Psyllium-husk can help you when you are pregnant.
Lowering elevated cholesterol levels
In addition to strengthening the digestion and relieving intestinal problems HUSK® Psyllium-husk have a documented effect on elevated cholesterol levels in the blood.
Cholesterol is a fat that can be divided into a good and a bad type. Too high a content of the bad cholesterol, LDL, increases the risk of arthritis and consequently blood clots. Therefore it is important to lower the level of LDL in the blood if it is too high. If you take HUSK® Psyllium-husk every day you can both prevent and lower the amount of bad cholesterol in the blood. The fibres in HUSK Psyllium-husk work by binding part of the fats that would otherwise be turned into the dangerous LDL. The fats are passed with the stool and the body consequently absorb a smaller part of the substance.
HUSK products are sold in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
