For years, you've always heard that fiber is good for you. The many well known, research-backed health benefits of fiber include: regulating blood sugar levels, aiding weight loss, and reducing the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, breast cancer, colon cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders such as reflux, ulcers and IBS.
What you may be less familiar with is how fiber -- particularly soluble fiber -- plays an essential role in a little-known system in our body called enterohepatic circulation. This system is responsible for keeping you toxic-free.
Psyllium can give me glowing skin? It sure can. Psyllium is a potent soluble fiber. Soluble fibers soak up toxins and eliminate them through the digestive tract instead of your pores. This is important because when yeast and fungus are excreted through the skin, they can trigger clogged pores and acne.
Consuming psyllium husk can flush toxins out of your body, producing brighter, clearer skin.
