Boost digestive health with Psyllium Husk
A functional digestive system is key to both physical and mental health, but, from time to time, you may find your body isn't processing food in the way it should.
When this happens, waste and toxins can build up, causing illness and discomfort.
Psyllium Husk has wonderful cleansing properties for the body, enhancing the digestive system and restoring a natural balance.
What is Psyllium Husk?
Psyllium Husk derives from the seed of the Plantain and contains lots of vital fibre. In fact, every 100 grams of the herb has 71 grams of soluble fibre, which plays an important role in aiding digestion and boosting the metabolism.
How can it be used?
Psyllium Husk can be used on a daily basis in conjunction with other supplements for a healthy lifestyle. It is primarily taken to help general digestion, increase fibre, treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and aid in weight control.
A boost for the digestive system
Even those who consider themselves to have a good digestion system will experience constipation from time to time. When this happens, the feeling of bloating can become unbearable and the body needs to be cleansed to restore normal function.
Psyllium Husk enables the body to get the fibre it needs to stimulate movement once again. It also soaks up water in the digestive tract, making stools firmer and easier to pass, in addition to reducing flatulence and bloating.
Taken regularly, the herb can even prevent problems arising, ensuring your digestive system is functioning properly all year round.
A useful fibre supplement
People without a balanced diet will often develop deficiencies and those who do not have a sufficient daily fibre intake because of intolerances to common fibre-filled foods can experience serious digestive problems.
Psyllium Husk is filled with fibre and is a great supplement for people to take to ensure the body is getting what it needs.
Because of its fibre properties, Psyllium Husk is often used by IBS sufferers. Acting as a laxative, it can stimulate bowel movement among patients that experience symptoms of constipation. The fibre can also firm up stools to stop diarrhea.
It is also used to facilitate bowel movements among those with anal fissures and haemorrhoids, or during pregnancy.
An aid to weight loss
Psyllium Husk is heralded as one of the most effective aids to weight loss, especially among those on a low-carbohydrate diet.
Filling the body with fibre, it reduces appetite without over stimulating the nervous system, making the body feel fuller for longer.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
