Psyllium Husk Whole (Weight-loss/Fibre/Detox) 400g

Fibre is a key part of our dietary intake to ensure we maintain a healthy bowel. Not eating enough fibre can lead to digestive problems such as constipation and other chronic digestive disorders. Psyllium Husk is known to maintain normal bowel transit and helps provide your recommended daily intake of fibre - something that many of us lack with the modern diet.

Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the Plantago and it contains a spongy fiber that reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system, making it an excellent choice for healthy dieting. It's a gentle, simple way to add valuable bulk to your diet. As Psyllium Husks pass through the body they turn into a gel which expands considerably supporting the collection of waste products through the intestines. Psyllium can provide the fiber that is missing on low carbohydrate diets.  Every 100 grams of psyllium provides 71 grams of soluble fiber; a similar amount of oat bran would contain only 5 grams of soluble fiber. The herb also provides a feeling of fullness that is helpful before meals. Psyllium is one of the simplest, healthiest and most effective herbs for weight control. Lepicol Psyllium Husk is quickly becoming one of the top recommendations for people using low-carb style diets. It is very difficult to get enough fibre in a diet when you eliminate the carbohydrates in cereals, whole grains and fruits.

Each serving of Organic Whole Husk Psyllium is a rich source of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber that meets your daily fibre needs.
It also provides numerous other benefits:

  • Naturally promotes your healthy elimination and regularity*
  • Supports your normal cholesterol levels*
  • Provides support for your gastrointestinal and immune system health*
  • Promotes your heart health*
  • Helps maintain and support your healthy weight*
  • Helps you feel full longer, so you have less room for other not-so-healthy food choices*
  • Does not contain pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, additives, or sweeteners of any kind

Psyllium seed husks are also known as ispaghula, isabgol, or psyllium, are portions of the seeds of the plant Plantagoovata, (genus Plantago), a native of India and Pakistan. They are hygroscopic, which allows them to expand and become mucilaginous.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established a tangible benefit of psyllium seed husk intake and a decreased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). Psyllium's soluble fiber thus has the potential to decrease the risk of CHD.

It's Time for You to Understand the Benefits of Fiber
Fiber has long been recognized for helping with digestive regularity and occasional constipation. However, the advantages of a fiber-rich diet go far beyond these basic benefits.* In fact, diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams of soluble fiber per day from psyllium seed husk may reduce the risk of heart disease.* One serving of Organic Whole Husk Psyllium provides 4.3 grams of this soluble fiber.

In addition, a diet rich in fiber:

  • Can contribute to a sense of fullness which may prevent over-eating and help you regulate your weight.*
  • Can promote the growth of your healthy bacteria and the food they need to thrive, which may help enhance your immune system's ability to promote good immune health.*
  • Can slow your absorption of sugars, which has the potential to promote healthy blood glucose levels.*
  • Can add "bulk" to your stool as it supports regularity and elimination.*

You Need at Least 32 Grams of Fiber Every Day*
When it comes to fiber, 32 grams is your minimum magic number. That's the amount of recommended fiber you should consume daily. But, if you're like most, you're likely only getting 10-15 grams – and yes, I know, it's pretty shocking, isn't it? Plus, if you're on a low carb diet or just don't consume many fruits, vegetables or grains, you're probably even further from your magic number. According to the Annals of Internal Medicine, people on low carb diets typically get only seven to eight grams of fiber daily! For your optimal health and wellbeing, you can't go wrong with adding more fiber into your daily diet.* Ideally, your diet will have foods high in soluble and insoluble fiber, including:

  • Dried beans
  • Peas
  • Flax seed
  • Green beans
  • Cauliflower

Digestion / Stomach / Gut Health
Psyllium soaks up a significant amount of water in the digestive tract, thereby making stool firmer and, under these circumstances, slower to pass. Psyllium also has the additional advantages over other sources of fiber of reducing flatulence and bloating. It may be recommended by a physician to help soften stool and reduce the pain associated with hemorrhoids. Psyllium has also been used for irritable bowel syndrome (a stress-related disorder with alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation). Because it will produce easy bowel movements with a loose stool, Psyllium is used by patients with anal fissures (cracks in the skin near the anus) and hemorrhoids and is often recommended following anal or rectal surgery, during pregnancy and as a secondary treatment in certain types of diarrhea.
In a study of people with ulcerative colitis (a type of inflammatory bowel disorder), psyllium seeds were shown to be highly effective in decreasing recurrences. In addition, a physician may recommend the use of psyllium as a bulking agent for mild to moderate cases of diarrhea from gut/stomach/digestive issues.

Probiotic Benefit
There are trillions of microorganisms that live in your digestive system – some are good,  but others do not provide any benefit. When it comes to your health and wellbeing, they play an incredibly important role and your fiber intake can make a big difference.* "Beneficial flora" are microorganisms that assist with digestion and absorption of your food, help support your immune system, and contribute to your body's overall heath and function.*

Since less desirable flora in the gut must compete with the helpful microbes already in residence, daily probiotic use can be an effective measure to help us keep the balance of intestinal flora tipped in favor of beneficial flora.* Probiotics are foods and supplements that actually contain these living beneficial microbes. Probiotics can help support your body's natural and healthy flora and support a healthy balance.*
How does all this relate to fiber?Beneficial bacteria love to feed on fiber (such as that found in Organic Whole Husk Psyllium).* Whereas, less desirable bacteria like to eat refined sugars and fats – which Organic Whole Husk Psyllium may help reduce within your digestive system.*

Cholesterol
Studies reported in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition have shown psyllium to be quite effective in lowering total as well as LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels.
Lepicol has the added bonus of inulin a prebiotic food souce and probiotics making the overall benefit greatly enhanced.

Weight-loss
In addition to Lepicol Psyllium Husk colon cleansing abilites or regularity support it is an effective weight loss supplement. PsylliumHusk taken 30 minutes before meals will have time to expand in your stomach and give you a "full" feeling. Meaning smaller meals and weight-loss.


With so many expensive and often lacking in results weight loss supplements on the market, many cheap fiber supplements, often in the pill form meaning tiny dose. When people choose Psyllium Husks they find the results so much more effective.
