Psyllium Husk

Psyllium husk is the outer layer of the grain that is derived from the seed of the plant Plantago ovata. It contains about 50% of the chopped raw material.

The husk mainly contains a fiber known as hemicellulose—a complex carbohydrate generally found in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. The fiber-rich component helps keep the digestive system moving smoothly and prevents constipation. It also has other benefits, such as helping with diarrhea and bloating.
