A great addition to any healthy lifestyle, SHILOH FARMS Psyllium Husk is pure dietary fiber - no corn or preservatives added! Psyllium contains approximately 70% soluble and 30% insoluble fiber.
Psyllium husk acts as a sponge in the intestinal tract, swelling as it absorbs water and waste material and forming a soft bulky mass that passes through the colon quickly and smoothly.
Directions: To use as a laxative, stir 2 tsp. psyllium into 8 oz of water or juice. Mix briskly for a few seconds and drink immediately (psyllium is exceptionally absorbent and will thicken liquid quickly). For best results, take approximately one hour before or one hour after meals.
Because of psyllium's unique properties, it is important to drink at least 8 oz of water with each serving. You may want to start with a small amount and increase over time as your body acclimates to psyllium's effects.
1. Blend into smoothies for an extra boost of fiber. Remember that psyllium will thicken whatever it is added to, so use plenty of liquid.
2. Add a small amount to soups or sauces to thicken.
3. Psyllium can be used to bind baked goods in place of eggs or xanthan gum.
