Indigo Herbs brings you our premium quality Organic Psyillium Husks which are full of fibre and can help with common intestinal complaints. This seed husk has been used in India for thousands of years and is used in Ayurvedic practice in combination with other remedies. Being a native plant of the Indian sub continent the benefits of Plantago ovata have only recently reached Western shores.

The common Indian name for Psyllium is '(Sat) Isabgol' which comes from the Persian 'asp' meaning horse and 'gul' meaning ear. The translation to 'horse ear' refers to the shape of the pink seed of the Plantago species and its characteristic shape. Being full of digestible and non-digestible fibre this supplement reacts with water producing a paste like substance that helps in regulating bowl movement. The husk does this by expanding up to 10 times its original size in contact with liquid.

In India the Plantago species is usually grown in the states of  Gujarat, Rajasthan and some parts of Madhya Pradesh. The plant usually grows to half a meter with fleshy leaves that are covered in a thin layer of fine hair. This characteristic follows on up the stalk right up to the cluster of flowers at the pinnacle of the plant. When the seed begins to mature the husk begins to peel off the seed and scatter in the wind. Each plant can carry up to 15,000 individual seeds which are carried in pods within the floral clusters.

Organic Psyllium Husks from Indigo Herbs is a premium quality source of natural dietary fibre traditionally used for intestinal cleansing and bowel health. Our Organic Psyllium husks can be added to liquid and taken daily.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this herbal powder. We are unable to advise you here on the benefits of our herbal products, however we do recommend you take the opportunity to research the many benefits of this herb. At Indigo Herbs we are committed to empowering optimum health and nutrition and assisting you to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing, by having access to many of natures healing botanicals. Please consult an Herbalist as to how this product can benefit you.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

It is very important to drink enough liquid when taking Psyllium husks.

One or two glasses of water or fruit juice should be taken with each dose. Larger doses can be taken for dealing with specific complaints like irritable bowel syndrome.

Whereas stimulant laxatives tend to create an immediate and sometimes violent response, the positive effects of psyllium husks on constipation are usually more gradual. It can take up to a few weeks for a change to be noticed. However, when the change is felt, it is a result of an actual toning of the bowels rather than simply an irritation and purge of them.

Serving:

1 or 2 teaspoons once or twice a day. It is recommended to start with a lower serving and gradually increase the intake.

1 teaspoon equals 3 grams (1 tsp = 3 g)
  • Certified Organic
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Gluten free.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

In Spring the Organic Psyllium plants are ready to be harvested and dried. The plants are cut before peak maturity in order to save the seed which will be scattered on the wind if left on the plant. Harvested by hand the plants are left outside to dry for a couple of days before being threshed to extract the seed from the main plant. The seeds are then put into vibrating sieves which separates any loose plant material and sand from the seed. The seed is then inspected and any underdeveloped or damaged seed is discarded so that only the best specimens are left. To detatch the precious husk from the seed a grinder is employed before a gravity separator removes any other impurities that might be clinging to the husk. After this process only the husk is left which is then packed in all its raw beauty.

Psyllium husks are very safe and are used by millions of people throughout the world as a natural alternative to chemical laxatives. They are the laxative of choice for children.

Because of the danger of intestinal obstruction, bulk-forming laxatives such as Psyllium Husks should not be taken by individuals with intestinal ulcerations, stenosis, or disabling adhesions.

High quality & trustworthy service
I have recommended this company to a few of my friends already. Even though I live in France, I won't order my herbs from any other company. I trust the quality of their herbs, their prices are reasonable, and they respond quickly to emails.
