Proven health benefits of Psyllium
Psyllium decreases appetite (more feelings of fullness and less hunger between meals). It also decreases blood pressure and improves lipid profile.
Psyllium also improves constipation, albeit prune, dried plums, kiwi fruits or flaxseed seem to be better. The consumption of Psyllium has also been proven to improve the gastric tolerance of oral antidiabetics (i.e. metformin).
