Psyllium seeds are a type of mucilaginous seed used for centuries in India and the Middle East. They are sometimes called “British flax” or “gumboot gums.”
Psyllium seeds are derived from the plant Plantago ovata, an herb that we harvest and cultivate in tropical areas of India.
The main ingredient in psyllium is soluble fiber, which absorbs water from the digestive system and passes through the body without being digested. It helps you feel full after eating less food, which can help you lose weight.
lspaghua, Isabgol, and Isabgula are the household names of Psyllium. Other names are Semen Ispaghula, Plantaginis Ovatae Semen, Flea, Spogel, Plantago Psyllium, Spogel, and Plantago Psyllium.
Following are the features of psyllium seeds:
Psyllium seeds are considered a “functional food” because they’re rich in fibers that help lower cholesterol and prevent digestive problems.
Psyllium seeds have a mild taste that is similar to that of oats or flaxseeds.
They are white with brown speckles and have a distinctive texture when ground into flour or powder.
They have a neutral pH level (6-7) that makes them suitable for most people who suffer from digestive problems like bloating or constipation.

Psyllium seeds reduce heartburn pain by reducing abdominal distention.
They also help to keep the digestive tract healthy and functioning properly.
They also help lower cholesterol levels by binding bile acids in the intestines and reducing their absorption into the bloodstream.
Psyllium seeds help to feel full longer after eating, which helps in weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight.
Users should take one teaspoon of psyllium seed powder mixed with warm water daily as part of their diet plan for better results on constipation relief.
