Psyllium Husk Powder is an important part of any detox! Psyllium husk comes from the husks of a small shrub originating from Indian and are processed in a way that removes the seeds from their husk pods. Psyllium husk is yet another top insoluble fiber that has the ability to bind to toxins throughout the entire digestive system, safely eliminating them before they can be reabsorbed. Remember, reabsorbing toxins the body is trying to release during a cleanse or fast is one of the most common problem that can lead to undesired symptoms during detox. Toxins that are release and reabsorbed only concentrate and this can lead to more of the same imbalances that caused the desire for a detox in the first place. Psyllium husk is categorized as a demulcent, meaning it has the ability to absorb water to quickly create a thick goo, which makes it excellent for regulating bowel function as well as binding to toxins that normally sit in the small intestine.
How to use : Remember to drink plenty of fluids during regular psyllium husk consumption. Mix one table spoon of husk into a large class of water and drink immediately. Within 2 minutes psyllium husk absorbs the entire glass of water to create a thick goo that is not very pleasant to drink. Cheers to your health! Can also be used in small amounts in gluten free cooking to act as a binder in absence of the regular gluten proteins within the flour.
