Psyllium Husk Caps (500mg) Overview
Psyllium Husk Caps from NOW Foods are a much easier way to get the superior fiber benefits of psyllium husk than using psyllium powder. You'll see psyllium used in almost every fiber supplement since it really is an ideal fiber ingredient; safe, inexpensive, well-tolerated, effective and in terms of its fiber content, has a good balance of soluble and insoluble fiber. Psyllium fiber can be used by almost anyone, and perhaps should be used by almost everyone since study after study, survey after survey and report after report make it crystal clear that practically no one gets enough fiber on a daily basis. NOW has the right idea by putting a full half-gram, 500 mg, of psyllium fiber in each capsule so only a few capsules taken with a glass of water 1-3 times per day can produce results comparable to trying to drink gritty powders. Almost every aspect of your health benefits when you get enough fiber; digestion, nutrient absorption, elimination, energy levels, and even mood and complexion can improve markedly because of fibers cleansing and detoxifying effects.
