Heart Disease - Lowering Blood Cholesterol

Soluble fibre (Psyllium) acts as a hypocholesterolemic agent. Soluble fibre (Psyllium) helps block the synthesis of cholesterol through its fermentation into Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA) by the intestinal flora (friendly bacteria in the colon). When soluble fibre reaches the colon, it starts a fermentation process with the gut flora producing SCFA.

Several studies of Fibre Therapeutic Diet are done at New Orleans, at the University Of Kentucky College Of Medicine in Lexington and at Chicago Center of Clinical Research. These studies showed that when soluble fibre (Psyllium) is consumed either with high or low fat diet, it helps decrease total as well as LDL cholesterol.

Psyllium helps control the rise of blood glucose following a meal. It also helps reduce insulin requirement in-patients with diabetes mellitus.

Colon Function

Psyllium treats / prevents constipation or diarrhea. Soluble fibre in Psyllium adds bulk to faecal mass. It increases activity in bowel movement and increases intestinal transit time. It helps keep regularity. Psyllium acts as a detoxifying agent. Through its ability to absorb large amounts of water, it binds with heavy metals and chemical toxins. Psyllium is useful during radiation therapy due to its ability to rid the body of radiation induced toxemia.
