Enriched with stevia, this ballast laxative is rich in fiber and mucilage. Hydrated hulls form a gelatinous mass that keeps stools hydrated and soft. The resulting mass stimulates a reflex to contract the walls of the intestine for a laxative effect.
Fortified psyllium husks are excellent sources of fiber. They purify, decontaminate, and are 100% natural. Psyllium is a high fiber and mucilage weight laxative; psyllium seeds contain 10 to 30% mucilage. The laxative properties of psyllium are due to the swelling of its shell when it comes into contact with water. This forms a gelatinous mass which helps keep faeces hydrated and soft, as long as enough water is consumed. The resulting ballast stimulates a reflex contraction of the intestinal walls, followed by emptying.
The 100% psyllium husk, partially ground, and enriched with probiotics, slowly removes toxins and residues from the gastrointestinal system, while providing healthy fiber.
Inulin or feeds the probiotic bacterial population in the colon, which in turn contributes to human health in several ways. Inulin is good for the proliferation of bifidobacteria and reduction of damaging bacteria, reduction of toxic metabolites and damaging enzymes, prevention of pathogenic and autogenic diarrhea, prevention of constipation, protection of liver function, reduction in blood pressure, and production of nutrients.
Psyllium husk is excellent for softening stools, preventing constipation, as well as against hemorrhoids and colitis.
