Psyllium Husks come from the small reddish brown to black seeds of the Plantago Psyllium plant. Odorless and tasteless, Psyllium is a member of the family Plantaginaceae, and is not related to wheat. There are several species of the plant, but the seed husks from Plantago ovata, also known as blonde Psyllium, have the best quality and highest fiber content.

Plantago grows as a weed in several places around the world and is cultivated for commercial use in Spain, France, India, Pakistan and other countries. Psyllium Husks are pure dietary fiber, composed mostly of hemicellulose. They are not digested in the small intestine, but are partially broken down in the colon, where as a prebiotic they act as a food source for friendly flora.

Psyllium Husks act as a bowel cleanse and a colon cleanse sponge in the intestinal tract, swelling as it absorbs water and waste material in the bowels. This forms a soft, bulky mass that passes through the colon more quickly (keeping potentially toxic waste moving in the colon) and evacuates more smoothly and easily.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Psyllium Husks may also help lower the risk of heart disease.
