Weight Loss:

Many dietitians believe that incorporating psyllium and other sources of fiber into the diet can help people lose weight faster. This is possible since psyllium can cause a feeling of fullness, which can reduce our sensation of hunger. Therefore, adding 1 teaspoon of psyllium to a glass of water or apple juice before each meal may be an effective way to increase weight loss.

High Cholesterol:

Psyllium is well studied as a lipid-lowering agent. The high levels of soluble fiber and linoleic acid in Psyllium stimulate the production of cholesterol-lowering bile acids and reduce the amount of cholesterol absorption by the body. Therefore, a simple remedy for high cholesterol is to take 1 teaspoon of Psyllium husk 3 times a day. It is recommended to drink lots of fluids when using this remedy. 


Psyllium Husk is a common ingredient in many over-the-counter constipation products, since it is a high source of fiber and it acts as a bulk-forming laxative.

Psyllium Husk is an effective natural remedy for diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. Psyllium's properties help to soak up a significant amount of excess water in the digestive tract and make stool firmer.

Side Effects

  • It is recommended to talk to your doctor before taking psyllium if you are currently taking medications for diabetes or cholesterol. Do not take psyllium if you have swallowing problems, intestinal obstructions, or have recently undergone bowel surgery.
  • Psyllium doesn't have any known side effects if consumed moderately with plenty of water. However, some people may be allergic to psyllium, so if you notice any rash, hives, itchiness or swollen skin, stop the use of Psyllium husk and consult your physician.
  • If you are taking any other medication, it is recommended to take Psyllium at least one hour after the medication. This is important since the thick mucilage formed by psyllium may engulf the medication, which significantly reduces the medication's effectiveness.
