Originally produced in the Mediterranean region,it is now widely planted in many countries around the world,such as India,the United Kingdom,Germany,Pakistan and Iran,among which India is the largest producer and exporter of Cymbidium.It is planted in Xinjiang and Fujian in my country.
1.The psyllium seed shell is rich in mucilage (Psyllium hydrophilic glue),which is composed of aldose,xylose,galactalic acid,semi-dried fatty oil and a small amount of acubinine.
2.Psyllium husk is rich in dietary fiber,as high as more than 80%,and the ratio of soluble dietary fiber to insoluble dietary fiber is as high as 7:3.
3.A variety of nutrients:mainly including glucoside,protein,polysaccharide, vitamin B1 and choline.
1.May help control blood sugar:Psyllium husk forms a gel with water, which can slow the movement of food through the digestive tract and the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.One study found that taking 5-20 grams of psyllium husk per day significantly reduced fasting blood sugar and HbA1c values in diabetic and prediabetic patients.
2.May improve certain markers of heart health: Psyllium husk can bind to bile acids,which may help lower LDL cholesterol levels. Psyllium husk reduces triglycerides and increases HDL cholesterol,which may reduce the risk of heart disease.
3.May improve stool consistency:Because of the strong water-retaining capacity of psyllium husk,it has a potentially positive effect on bowel function-improving both constipation and diarrhea.
4.Weight control: Since the psyllium husk is rich in water-soluble fiber,it will expand to form a gel group dozens of times when exposed to water,which can increase the feeling of satiety,but it will not provide calories and reduce calorie intake.
Are there any side effects of psyllium husk?
Unlike many other soluble fibers,psyllium husk is not easily fermented by bacteria in the colon.Therefore,it is less likely to produce excess gas or other digestive issues.However,if you take large amounts of psyllium husk (more than 15 grams per day),you may experience bloating,gastrointestinal distress,or gas.The best way is to start with a small amount of psyllium husk in your diet and increase gradually.Psyllium husk should be eaten in moderation with plenty of water.Ingestion of large amounts of psyllium husks with insufficient water intake can lead to constipation and even intestinal blockage.
