Yerba Prima 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. 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. It is most effective when used everyday, and can be used as long as desired.*
