Psyllium Plantago ovata
This high-fibre seed has an amazing ability to absorb water giving it an unctuous outer layer.
We use the outer husk of the seed for these very special bulking properties. The water-soluble fibre is similar to the type found in grains such as oats and barley but in a much more concentrated form.
The psyllium husk we use in our Fibre Plus formula comes from an organic project in Rajasthan.
As you can imagine, such a water-loving seed needs to be grown somewhere very dry. And, as you can read on the directions, it must be taken with lots of water.
