Yerba Prima is the dietary fiber pioneer in U.S. natural foods stores. At Yerba Prima, were so fond of psyllium that it was one of the very first products we launched back in 1980. We know many people look for Certified Organic foods and supplements, so we offer Certified Organic Psyllium Whole Husks (Certified Organic by QAI).
Organic Psyllium Whole Husks is a high quality dietary fiber for promoting regularity and colon health, supporting heart health, supporting weight maintenance and much more. It is most effective when used everyday, and can be used as long as desired.
There are many reasons why psyllium husks are a part of daily health maintenance for millions of people. One important reason is that psyllium husks support heart health. Extensive research has shown that psyllium husks help maintain cholesterol levels within the normal range, 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.

How to Use Organic Psyllium Whole Husks
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 or between meals.
FOR HEART HEALTH:To help maintain cholesterol levels within the normal range and support heart health, take 2 servings a day, with meals.
FOR WEIGHT MAINTENANCE: Dietary fiber plays an important role in weight loss and maintaining healthy weight. High fiber foods like psyllium husks help promote satiety (a feeling of fullness). To support weight maintenance, take 1 to 3 servings a day, shortly before meals or with meals.
FOR BLOOD SUGAR BALANCE: Psyllium husks help to maintain blood sugar levels already within the normal range, by slowing digestion to avoid blood sugar spikes. This also reduces hunger pangs to help with weight management. To support blood sugar balance, take 1 to 3 servings a day, with meals.
