Psyllium Husk Certified Organic Psyllium Husk Certified Organic

Psyllium Husk Powder by NOW company is a dietary supplement which contains powder form of seed husks of Psyllium which is a rich source of high-quality dietary fibre, a component necessary for the proper functioning of the digestive system.

Psyllium is a plant native to mediterranean climate. It is used in dietetics and supplementation industry, because of the positive influence on the digestive system of the seed husks, which are a rich source of soluble and insoluble dietary fibre. Regular use of Psyllium positively affects prevention of digestive system diseases, intestinal peristalsis, cardiovascular system and reduction in risk of insulin resistance, as it reduces glycemic index of food.

Its seeds consist of mucous, which contains soluble, highly hydrophilic polysaccharides (containing arabinoxylans, rhamnose and galacturonic acid), which after contact with water form a jelly substance around the husk. Psyllium seeds are used in fight against constipations, however the plant shows a wide range of other valuable properties.

Dietary fibre (hemicellulose) is not digested by the human body system, however it is necessary for the proper functioning of the whole digestive system. It positively affects intestinal peristaltis, which is why it reduces the risk of constipations. Thanks to its ability to swell, it promotes feeling of satiety after meal, and the body system inability to digest it delays the process and slows down absorption of nutrients, which also reduces glycemic index of meals. These properties make dietary fibre one of the most important (unfortunately often underestimated) factors on the way to body weight reduction and keeping perfect shape.

Apart from that, dietary fibre reduces the amounts of triglycerides and cholesterol in blood, so that it positively affects health and functioning of the cardiovascular system as well as reduces the risk of diseases. Hemicellulose supports body system detoxification and is a perfect prebiotic – it promotes development of natural bacterial flora of the intestines.

Support and regulation of the digestive system functions
Psyllium seeds are essential in prevention and of digestive problems and maintenance of the proper functioning of digestive system. Dietary fibre, as a result of contact with water, increases its volume. In this form, it reaches the large intestine and increases the volume of stool, which promotes removal of intestinal deposits and positively affects consistency and frequency of stool. Constipations, apart from physical discomfort and unpleasant bloating, increase the risk of diseases of the digestive tract.

Supplementation with Psyllium seeds supports the movement of stool through the intestines, which results in removal of toxic metabolism by-products from digestive tract (ammonia or hydrogen sulfide). Thanks to this ability, the supplement is recommended for people suffering from recurring constipations and diarrhea. Psyllium also relieves pain associated with haemorrhoids, shows protective effects in case of ulcers and irritations of digestive tracts and intestines (irritable bowel syndrome).

Valuable support in weight loss
Few people on slimming diets are aware that dietary fibre could be a great support for them. Unfortunately, nowadays many people consume highly processed food, which are deprived of dietary fibre or its amounts were drastically reduced during production. Food poor in this element is much less filling and goes throug the digestive system very fast, which results in frequent feeling of hunger. Then we eat another meal and provide hunderds or thousands of unnecessary calories.

A solution to this problem is the Psyllium Husk supplement in form of convenient powder, which makes it easier to “hide” it in a meal and provide optimal dose of dietary fibre in practically invisible way. Psyllium seeds absorb water and increase their volume, so that we feel full after a meal. Moreover, they slow down digestion of the whole meal (as they are not digested by the body system), which is why the nutrients are released slowly and gradualy to the blood. This is why it reduces rapid blood sugar spikes and insulin releases as well as reduces fat absorption.

The above properties reduce the risk of insulin resistance, which is a common cause for obesity. Consumption of large amounts of carbohydrates leads to increase in blood sugar. To restore its normal level, the body system secrets a hormone, insulin, which transports sugars and amino acids. However, if insulin releases are prolonged and frequent, the cells become resistant to its action, which leads to insulin resistance. In such case, smaller amounts of carbohydrates are transported to muscle cells and used for energy purposes, and they are accumulated in form of adipose tissue.

Psyllium Husk and dietary fibre contained in it slow down carbohydrate digestion, which stabilises increases in blood sugar and insulin release. This reduces the risk of insulin resistance and accumulation of unnecessary adipose tissue.

Natural prebiotic and protection of intestinal mucous membrane
The proper functioning of the digestive and immune systems depends on the condition of bacterial flora. Prebiotics include all nutrients which stimulate production of live bacteria culture in the body system. Oligosaccharides, which are i.a. contained in mucous of Psyllium seeds, are a perfect medium for intestinal bacteria cultures. Presence of Psyllium Husk in the intestines provides perfect conditions for Bifidobacterium and lactic acid bacteria to proliferate.

Fermentation of polysaccharides has positive influence on production of short-chain fatty acids (butyric, propanoic and acetic acids), which are natural shield of the intestinal mucous membrane and reduce putrefaction. Butyric acid is also a basic energy source for cells of colon epithelium (colonocytes).

Cholesterol level regulation
Psyllium seeds are believed to reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol. They affect an enzyme, 7-alpha-hydrolase, which reduces the ratio of bile acids synthesis as well as increase the activity of reductase HMG-CoA inhibitor, which is responsible for regulation of synthesized cholesterol. Thanks to that, supplementation is a part of cardiovascular diseases prevention.

To sum it all up, the Psyllium Husk supplement is a high-quality source of dietary fibre in form of Psyllium seeds. It shows a wide range of properties supporting the digestive and cardiovascular systems. It effectively supports weight loss and maintenance of athletic shape. It perfectly complements dietary fibre, which is rare in majority of nowadays available, highly processed food. The product has the certificate “Certified Organic”, which is granted by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to products which are 100% natural and organic.

Calories

Information

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
