Psyllium Husk Caps Psyllium Husk Caps

Now Foods Psyllium Husk Caps is a dietary supplement that provides natural dietary fibre. The capsules containing psyllium husk and seeds are easy to use and comfortable.

The supplement is recommended as general preventive healthcare. It enables an easy increase in the amount of consumed fibre, which helps to regulate the functioning of the digestive system and helps to restore normal bowel movement rhythm. Specialists believe that increasing the amount of fibre in diet reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular system diseases. Moreover, it is beneficial for people who are trying to lose weight, as it gives the desired feeling of satiety and reduces excessive appetite.

Psyllium (Plantago indica) is an annual plant native mainly to Mediterranean areas. The material used in herbal medicine are its seeds, a fantastic source of soluble and non-soluble dietary fibre. The seed husk consists mainly of mucus formed out of soluble polysaccharides, such as arabinoxylans, rhamnose, or galacturonic acid. Their molecule structure enables easy water attraction and binding. With liquid, the seeds of the plant swell, forming a soft, jelly-like structure.

Support for the digestive system
The most important function of dietary fibre is optimising digestive processes and supporting the functioning of the digestive system. After entering the organism, psyllium seeds immediately bind with water, forming a jelly-like substance. It has a beneficial effect on the motility of the digestive system and accelerates the movement of food content through the gastrointestinal tract. It is an excellent regulator of bowel movement rhythm, prevents constipation and diarrhoea.

Psyllium seeds can also play the role of a prebiotic. They are a fantastic source of oligosaccharides, which can be used by positive strains of intestinal bacteria. That way the plant prevents intestinal dysbiosis and promotes balance in the intestinal microflora, which is crucial for the health of the digestive system.

The soluble non-starch polysaccharides are subject to the process of anaerobic fermentation during which short-chained fatty acids are formed, such as acetate, propanoate, or butyrate. They have a beneficial effect on the intestinal mucosa, prevent irritation, reduce the risk of bacterial infections, and nourish intestinal epithelial cells.

Support for the process of detoxification
Dietary fibre is important for proper detoxification in the organism. It moves through the entire digestive system and works like a sponge that absorbs dangerous substances and cleanses subsequent parts of the gastrointestinal tract from toxins. It can help to remove lead and heavy metals from the organism.

Efficient detoxification also depends on the speed of movement of food contents and undigested breakdown products through the gastrointestinal tract. Thanks to the right amount of fibre, it is fast enough to make undigested food stay in the gut only for a short time, that way preventing them from transforming into compounds that could be dangerous for health.

Support for weight loss
Increasing fibre supply provides great support for slimming diets. Dietary fibre easily absorbs liquids, that way significantly increasing its volume. Swelling, it fills the stomach and guarantees the feeling of satiety. That way it is much easier to control the diet and consume smaller portions, which, consequently, helps to reduce body mass.

Scientific studies show that fibre plays a role in regulating the endocrine function of the large intestine. Intestinal peptides produced by the large intestine also affect the centre of hunger and satiety. They stabilise sensations in the stomach after a meal, thanks to which the feeling of satiety is maintained for long enough. That helps to eliminate the problem of snacking between meals, which can easily ruin all efforts to have a great body.

Type 2 diabetes prevention
Tests on people with diabetes demonstrated that the consumption of psyllium seeds can lead to a reduction in urine sugar levels and lower serum glucose levels. Importantly, a reduction in glucose levels does not lead to an increase in insulin levels. That activity is possible because fibre limits the access of hydrolytic enzymes to sugars. Thanks to that, the breakdown of carbohydrates slows down and sugar absorption decreases.

Cardiovascular system disease prevention
Scientific studies have proven that substances contained in psyllium seeds affect the enzyme 7 alpha-hydroxylase (responsible for the speed of bile acid synthesis) and stimulate the expression of the reductase inhibitor HMG-CoA (regulates the amount of cholesterol produced). That translates into a decrease in the negative cholesterol fraction, LDL, and triglycerides. An optimised lipid profile is a key element in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular system prevention.

To sum up, Psyllium Husk Caps is an easy way to increase the consumption of fibre. The preparation is based on safe and natural components. It fantastically regulates digestion and prevents constipation, as well as proves extremely helpful in the fight against excess kilograms. Supplementation is also recommended for people in the risk group of diabetes and cardiovascular system diseases.

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.

 

Carbohydrates

Information

Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used
residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.


 

Dietary fibre

Information

Dietary fibre is a mixture of undigested substances and not absorbed by the human body. Due to the properties divided into: insoluble fibre (e.g. cellulose [polysaccharide] found in fruits and vegetables), partially soluble fibre (including hemicellulose occurring with cereal grains and soluble fibre (including pectin, gums, mucilages [polysaccharides]). Dietary fibre affects the digestive system and gastrointestinal system regulating its operation. By filling the stomach (satiety) reduces appetite, lowers triglycerides and cholesterol and consequently can support the weight loss process and maintain a slim body. It also affects blood glucose levels and cleansing the body of toxins. Available in powder formulations (capsules, and powders), mainly containing the soluble fraction (pectin, gums and mucilages) diet and meal replacements.
Dosage: 10-20 grams per day, before or during meals with some water.


 

Psyllium seed Husk

Information

Psyllium seed Husk (prepared husks of Psyllium seed), which are a rich source of hemicellulose (fibre), is not digested by the human body. Ensuring an adequate supply of fibre, significantly affects the function and condition of the gastrointestinal tract (supporting the development of bacterial flora, it has the effect on the intestinal peristalsis, and suppressing the appetite, filling the stomach produces a feeling of satiety for a longer period of time), and the prevention of cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis), and reduces the risk of insulin immunity (reduces the glycemic index of GI after a meal). Not quite scientifically studied effects on prevention of cancers. In the dietary supplementation, Psyllium seed husk is a base (or addition) of preparations containing fibre, and in the composition of carbohydrate-protein, protein supplements and and the MRP type meals. It is used by the both by professional athletes as well as people with less physical activity. Preparations available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: 10 to 20 g / 24 according to individual needs, or in case of shortage of components
