Psyllium husk or powder is derived from the crushed seeds of Plantago Ovata plant, which is commonly found in parts of Asia, particularly India.
The soluble fiber found in psyllium husk can help regulate blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, relieve both constipation and diarrhea, and has been used in scientific studies to treat irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, and other intestinal problems.
The ScotMaple Psyllium husk is at least 95% pure.

ScotMaple 100% Whole Psyllium Husk Powder – Suggested Use
Psyllium husk can be used as a binding agent for recipes where gluten is naturally absent. You can use it in baking, vegetable based recipes (like fufu), and can also be added to some cereal to increase fibre content.
As a supplement, use in your favourite juice or beverage, mixing 1 tablespoon (approximately 10g) in 1 cup (8oz) of fluid. Stir and drink immediately, and be sure to drink at least another cup of water to hydrate.
Always follow the guidance of your health care provider.
