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 vegetarian 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: Psyllium husks promote easy, healthy elimination and sweep waste out of the colon more quickly. For regularity and to speed waste removal, 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.
SUGGESTED USE: ADULTS AND CHILDREN OVER 12: 4 or 5 capsules, one to three times a day. Take with food. For children 6-12: Do not take capsules. Psyllium Husks in powder form is recommended for ease of use. Start by taking 1 serving each day. Gradually increase to 3 servings per day if needed. Swallow one capsule at a time. Take each serving with at least 8 ounces (a full glass) of water or other liquid. Drinking additional liquid is helpful. If minor gas or bloating occurs, reduce the amount you take until your system adjusts. For best results, use daily as long as desired.
