Psyllium Husk Caps Psyllium Husk Caps

Now Foods Psyllium Husk Caps is a dietary supplement in the form of convenient capsules, containing in its composition powdered husks and seed psyllium plantain and apple pectin. These ingredients are an excellent natural source of soluble fibre, supporting the proper functioning of the digestive system.

Psyllium plantago (differently Mediterranean plantain, African plantain) is a plant from the plantago family, originating from the regions of the Mediterranean basin, West Asia and North Africa. Grandmother's seeds are a great source of fibre (about 100g of fibre per 100g of grain).

The healing properties of this plant are mainly attributed to its seeds, which resemble linseed with their appearance and partly the use of it. Grains of psyllium plantago are very small. Under the influence of contact with the liquid they swell, creating a characteristic gruel. This gruel is also formed in the digestive system and has a soothing effect on it.

Applying psyllium plantago can effectively counteract gastrointestinal diseases, stimulate intestinal motility, regulate defecation, stabilize cholesterol levels and improve the sensitivity of body tissues to insulin.

Addition of apple pectin
Pectins are soluble fibres that can be found in plant structures (including legumes and fruits such as apples, citruses and apricots). It’s a very important nutrient - pectin bind substances found in the intestines, facilitating their digestion.

The preparation uses apple pectin, which under the influence of water quickly swells and significantly increases the volume, forming a jelly-like gel.

The perfect combination
The simultaneous use in the apple pectin preparation and plantain psyllium (which is a great source of soluble fibre fraction) makes it that this preparation has many health-promoting properties.

Diabetes prevention element
The incidence of diabetes across the world is increasing steadily. In Poland alone, the number of people with diabetes reached 4%, and that number is constantly growing. Weight reduction, increased physical activity, and a reasonable diet will reduce the risk of diabetes by up to 58%, which is what the latest WHO study says.

Guidelines from the United States provide clear dietary recommendations which, if implemented, will reduce the risk of developing this disease. The basis of these recommendations is consuming products with a low glycaemic index, limiting the supply of saturated fatty acids and increasing intake of complex carbohydrates, including fibre.

It’s worth noting that the glycaemic index is also influenced by dietary fibre. Fractions of the water-soluble fibre (i.e. the one that is contained in the product) significantly lower the glycaemic index of the meal and make glucose release much more slowly from food. These properties counteract large increases in blood sugar levels. As a result, the increased supply of water-soluble dietary fibre may help to limit deviations in the results of blood glucose levels, and thus - may be one of the elements of prophylaxis of type 2 diabetes. 

Gastrointestinal detoxification
The fibre, moving along the digestive system detects toxins and other dangerous substances for the body, such as lead. For the detoxification to work properly, however, it’s important to have a quick bowel movement that will make the moving food content "bind" the potentially hazardous substances quickly enough before they are absorbed into the body. One of the ways to stimulate intestinal peristalsis is a sufficiently high fibre supply in the diet, which can also be supported with supplementation.

Support for weight loss
Increased fibre supply is a great support for people who want to lose unnecessary weight. Fibre makes the feeling of satiety much faster.

Fibre absorbs liquids very easily, which causes a significant increase in its volume. By swelling, it quickly fills the stomach and gives the feeling of satisfying hunger. Thanks to this, it’s much easier to control your appetite and follow dietary recommendations, which can help you achieve your dream figure.

Additional benefits
It was shown that psyllium grandmother may have an influence on the optimization of the lipid profile, and more specifically on the level of LDL cholesterol, i.e. "Bad" cholesterol. In one study, supplementation of seeds from this plant contributed to the reduction of LDL with simultaneous increase in the level of HDL fraction.

Due to the fact that a larger supply of fibre causes an increase in the stool volume and a shorter passage time in the intestine, it may be one of the elements of colon cancer prevention. Thanks to these properties, potential carcinogenic compounds (carcinogens) show lower concentration in the stool and shorter contact with the mucous membrane of the large intestine. 

In conclusion, Now Foods Psyllium Husk Caps is a natural source of fibre. It contains only safe and natural ingredients. Regular use can effectively help the digestive system and relieve constipation. The preparation may also help in weight reduction and in the regulation of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.

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

Pectin

Information

Pectin is a mixture of amorphous sugars, of a high molecular weight (polygalacturonic acid chain combined with methanol [esterification] with branches side formed by arabinose and galactose. Pectin is fibre soluble in water (hot or cold) and therefore not subject to the process of digestion by enzymes synthesized by the body. They are found in products of plant origin (fruit, vegetables, etc.). Consumption of products containing pectin reduces hunger, improves the function of the digestive tract and reduces levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) in the blood.. Pectins bind ions of heavy metals and break down the bacterial flora in the intestine thick. the most effective action (compaction) show in an acidic environment (pH≤ 6) and in the presence of sugars. They are a component of the nutrients concentrates and supplements in capsules, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: the lack of standards for daily consumption.
A taken dose dependens on the purpose and individual needs
