The seed husks of the Plantago ovata

Psyllium husk comes from the plantago ovata, and is an excellent source of dietary fibre. It is composed of both soluble and insoluble fibres, the most common of which is a type of mucilage called hemicellulose.

What does 99% stand for in Psyllium husk?

Psyllium husk 99% refers to the purity of the psyllium husk. It is the highest level of pure psyllium husk available and contains 99% pure psyllium husk, with no additional fillers or binders. The remaining 1% consists of trace amounts of other ingredients such as silica (Silica). An adult body contains about 1.5 grams of silicon, the element is essential for bone and connective tissue growth. Psyllium husk 99% is the most potent form of psyllium husk and has the greatest potential for health benefits. It can be taken in capsule form, loose fibre or as a powder, to increase your dietary fibre intake. 

Is there also impure psyllium husk?

Impure forms of psyllium husk are available. These products often contain fillers and binders, and the amount of pure psyllium husk is much lower than that in Psyllium husk 99%. Impure forms of psyllium husk may not have the same health benefits as the pure form and should be avoided. Psyllium husk 99% is the most potent form and offers the best health benefits for those who want to include more dietary fibre in their diet. It is also the safest and most effective form of psyllium husk as it contains no additional additives or fillers.

Recommended daily intake

The daily intake of psyllium husk powder depends on why you are taking it. For general health purposes, we recommend adults take up to 5 grams per day (1 tablespoon). However, if you are taking it for weight loss or other medical conditions, your doctor may recommend a higher dose. It is important to use the correct dosage because too much psyllium husk can cause unwanted side effects, such as cramps, bloating and diarrhoea. In the right dosage, psyllium husk can be a valuable tool to improve your overall health. It is best to start with a small dose and work up to the recommended amount over time. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor before using psyllium husk.
