Psyllium: Support a Healthy Digestive System

Did you know that 70% of your immune system resides in your gut? That’s why we firmly believe a healthy gut leads to a happy life. 

Healthy bowel function is essential to keep your body and mind in optimal shape. Not only are digestive problems damaging to your physical health, but they can significantly impact your mood. Fact: 90% of the body's serotonin is produced in the gut. Psyllium’s unique properties as both a soluble and insoluble fiber makes it the ideal fiber to clean your digestive tract, detox your system, maintain a positive mood, and support a healthy digestive system.

The average adult has 8 undigested meals sitting in their gut! That’s around 5-20 lbs of waste trapped in your digestive system at any given time. Psyllium works by binding to all of this partially digested food while absorbing water, resulting in bigger, softer, and easier-to-pass stools. Adding bulk to your stool is an excellent exit strategy.

Psyllium Husk and its Effect on Constipation, IBS, IBD, Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis

Psyllium is one of the most effective fibers for bowel-related issues, particularly constipation. It also comes with fewer side-effects such as bloating and gas. Because of psyllium’s spongy texture, your intestines love it because unlike wheat bran and other kinds of scratchy, insoluble fiber, it doesn’t irritate the gut walls. It’s like a soft, cushy mop sweeping away all of the toxic debris throughout your digestive tract.

Clinical studies have found it to improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Furthermore, its promotion of regularity helps ensure a clean, healthy colon.

Daily consumption of 100% organic, non-GMO whole husk sylly will help promote regularity and optimum digestive health.

Sylly Tip: When you first wake up in the morning, an internal alarm clock goes off signaling your colon to start contracting. Drinking sylly first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is a great way to maintain regularity.
