BENEFITS: Psyllium Husks is the strongest natural dietary fiber for promoting regularity and supporting heart health. It is most effective when used everyday‚ and can be used as long as desired. Yerba Prima offers the health benefits of Psyllium Husks in convenient capsule form.
There are many reasons why psyllium husks are a part of daily health maintenance for millions of people. Extensive research has shown that psyllium husks help maintain normal cholesterol levels‚ including a proper balance of HDL and LDL cholesterol. In addition‚ psyllium husks help promote normal regularity. Unlike stimulant laxatives‚ psyllium husks are gentle and are not habit forming. Psyllium husks’ bulking action makes elimination easier and more comfortable. At the same time‚ psyllium sweeps waste and toxins more quickly out of the body‚ so toxins are not reabsorbed from the colon back into the bloodstream. Psyllium husks can be taken either with or between meals‚ and when used in recommended amounts should not interfere with absorption of vitamins and other nutrients. Gluten-Free: psyllium husks do not contain any gluten so people who are gluten sensitive can use them.
FOR REGULARITY AND COLON HEALTH: Psyllium husks promote easy‚ healthy elimination and sweep waste out of the colon more quickly. Psyllium husks provide gentle fiber to soothe and normalize the bowel when there is discomfort. To maintain regularity and colon health‚ take 1 to 3 servings a day‚ with meals.
FOR HEART HEALTH: To help support heart health‚ take 5 capsules 3 times a day‚ with meals.
FOR LOW CARB DIETS. Doctors recommend psyllium husks for people eating low carb diets‚ to help them get the extra fiber generally not provided in low carb diets.

Keeps Me Regular
For as long as I can remember I have suffered from constipation--when I was a little kid I had prune juice with breakfast while the rest of my family had orange juice and I thought it was because I preferred the taste! Over the past 25 years I have been taking psyllium seed husk powder before dinner--or after if I eat away from home--daily and have had no problems with constipation...except when my supply runs out or when I am traveling and have not packed it. I used to stir a spoonful of the powder in a glass of water but have found over the past 5 years that taking it in capsule form is both more convenient and more efficient--I no longer have leftover unused psyllium seed husk powder lining the glass. I found out about this when I was working at a holistic health center where both an acupuncturist and a nutritionist recommended it. I order it in large quantities now so Ill be sure not to run out!

Great quality for price
I used to take the kind of fiber that you mix with water. I think this is a much easier and much less expensive option!
