What is Psyllium? Psyllium (Plantago ovata) is a plant native to Western and Southern Asia, used for centuries in Ayurveda for digestive health and healing. The husks of the seeds offer the greatest nutritional value, and are isolated for their hydrophilic (water loving) benefits. Psyllium husks are available whole, ground or in capsules, offering equal benefits- just in various forms.
- MAINTAINS REGULARITY - Unlike harsh laxatives, our psyllium powder naturally forms a gel when combined with liquids, assisting with the passage of food to eliminate waste. Each teaspoon provides 4g of dietary fiber, representing 16% of your recommended daily fiber intake!
- BOOSTS DIGESTIVE HEALTH - High fiber foods typically only provide one source of fiber. Our psyllium powder* provides a combination of insoluble and soluble fiber, essential for the maintenance of optimal digestion.
- PROMOTES HEART HEALTH - Sourced from organic psyllium seed husks, our psyllium powder expands 10-20 times its original size in liquids, sweeping bad cholesterol from the digestive tract for greater cardiovascular support.
- PROMOTES HEALTHY WEIGHT MANAGEMENT - A high intake of fiber when combined with water, promotes satiety, helping you to feel fuller longer. Combat food cravings with Viva Naturals Organic Psyllium Husk.
