Psyllium is a low-growing herb native to India, Iran, and Pakistan. It is in the same family as the common Plantain. Psyllium seeds and husks contain abundant amounts of mucilage and fiber, and they swell into a gel-like bulky substance when they're mixed with water. Psyllium seeds and husks act as bulk-forming laxatives.
Ground seed, always taken with at least two-thirds cup (approximately 150 ml) of water. If not grinding, soak in warm water for 2 to 6 hours before use. May also be taken as an extract and sometimes as a capsule, though rare.
How to Take Psyllium Husks
1. Drink one glass of water. Then take one tablespoon of psyllium husk powder in a glass of water or juice and drink another glass of water. This is to ensure you have adequate amount of water to create a smooth flowing bulk fiber.
2. Do not take psyllium with any supplements or any medication because they will also be trapped and eliminated by the psyllium fiber.
3. Take at least two hours before or after consuming anything. But if you want to eat less by feeling full, then take it about 15 minutes before a meal.
4. Do not take too much psyllium fiber as it is more likely to create some side effect or other, if a proportionate amount of water is not consumed. At least two or three glasses of water or juice with every teaspoon of psyllium is enough to keep it soft.
5. Throughout the day drink eight to 12 glasses of water to ensure that the psyllium moving through the intestines is soft and able to move easily.
6. It is advisable to take some probiotics daily on an empty stomach in the morning, if you have taken the psyllium at night and vice-versa.
Never take both psyllium and a stimulant laxative (senna, rhubarb, buckthorn, cascara sagrada, frangula, or an over-the-counter stimulant laxative such as Ex-Lax). The fibers in psyllium interfere with absorption of nutrients (especially vitamin B12) and medications, so take psyllium at least 2 hours before or after eating or taking supplements or medications.
