Health Benefits of Isabgol

Created On : February 24, 2015

Hello everyone,

I am suffering from a constipation problem. However, i was told by some of my friends to eat foods that are rich in fiber in order to get rid of the condition. It is not helping me out at all. My grandmother has advised me to eat Isabgol instead. However, before going for it, I want to confirm whether it is good to use or not? Thanks

Hi, Your grandmother has suggested the best remedy to you. Check out the various health benefits of Isabgol: Beneift of Psyllium husk( SAT ISABGOL) Psyllium may help with weight loss control. Also see an effective appetite suppressant called Diet Rx with no side effects. Psyllium is a wonderful bulking fiber for constipation. Another benefit of psyllium husk is that it reduces fecal incontinence. Psyllium helps maintain healthy cholesterol and blood lipid levels. In 1998, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the use of a health claim in the labeling of foods and dietary supplements containing psyllium husk. The health claim states that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include soluble fiber per day from psyllium may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. Psyllium may help maintain healthy blood pressure. Psyllium added to a traditional diet for persons with type II diabetes is safe, well tolerated, and improves glycemic and lipid control. Psyllium reduces radiation-induced diarrhea. Psyllium could be helpful for hemorrhoids since it softens the stools. Psyllium fiber is best taken in a dose of 1 to 5 grams with a meal, particularly if the meal has a low fiber content. You can mix half a teaspoon or a teaspoon of psyllium fiber with a glass of water, once or twice a day. I also recommend drinking a glass of water in the morning when you wake up.
