What is Psyllium?
Psyllium /ˈsɪliəm/, or ispaghula (isabgol) /ˌɪspəˈɡuːlə/, is the common name used for several members of the plant genus Plantago whose seeds are used commercially for the production of mucilage. Psyllium is mainly used as a dietary fiber to relieve symptoms of both constipation and mild diarrhea, and occasionally as a food thickener. Allergy to psyllium is common in workers frequently exposed to the substance. (Source-Wikipedia)
The Psyllium Seeds? What is Psyllium Seed?
Psyllium has small seeds, 1000 seeds weigh less than 2 grams. The husk of Psyllium is the actual coating of mucilage around the seed. It is considered pure dietary fiber and are the only part of the plant used in manufacturing Psyllium products. Its nutritional value consists mainly of glycosides, proteins, polysaccharides, vitamin B1, and choline. The Fiber content of over 80% compared to less than 15% for oat bran and 10% for wheat bran. The husk is composed mostly of a fiber called hemicellulose which is a complex carbohydrate found in whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Hemicellulose is indigestible, however, it is partially broken down in the colon and feeds the friendly intestinal flora.
Psyllium seeds are the product of mature parts (forks) of the Plantago Ovata (farm. Plantaginancae) and are cleaned of all dust, agri farm fibers, debris, mud, stones and metal particles.
Under optimal conditions of adequate humidity and low temperature (50-68 ° F) 30% of seeds germinate in 5 to 8 days. Seeds show abnormal sleep (3 months) after harvest. A variety of treatments including wet and dry heat, cold, scar, ethylene and CO2 do not eliminate this bedtime. Post-dormancy seeds show more than 90% reliable germination at 84 ° F and low germination rates as temperatures rise.
Psyllium grows best in light, well-lit, sandy holes. The nutritional requirements of the crop are low. The soil is usually low in nitrogen and phosphorus and high in potassium pH between 7.2 and 7.9. Nitrogen testing trials under these conditions showed a high seed yield response with the addition of 20 lb/acre of nitrogen.
The seeds themselves are made up of 40% Linoleic Acid (LA), an essential fatty acid essential for health. The seeds have the property of mucilage formation in the removal of moisture. The Psyllium seeds are pacifying, laxative, cooling, anti acidic, anti-diuretic and demulcent.
