What is it?

It’s not a super food as popular as spirulina or flax seeds, but psyllium husks aren’t inferior to them. All it needs is a little introduction and you’d surely be blown away with what it has to offer. Also called isabgol and ispaghula in India, Plantain is an annual, herbaceous herb that produces small, white flowers. Its leaves have three to five veins. Plantain or psyllium (they are synonymous) is just one of the 250 species of Plantago, the genus where plantain belongs. Psyllium has seeds and the outer covering of these seeds or husk is what’s turned into psyllium husk powder. Psyllium has its roots in India and Pakistan where it was used in traditional ayurveda medicine for 5,000 years as cure for a lot of ailments, more prominently, for constipation. It can also be found in Europe and North America, but only towards the end of the twentieth century. Today, psyllium can be found in almost every region in the world—Asia, Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Soviet Union and others.

What makes our psyllium husks powder different?

We eat healthy foods because we want to take advantage of the nutrients found in these foods—to make us healthier and increase the quality of our lives. But when these foods are substandard, the nutrients it contains become questionable. What constitutes a high-quality psyllium husks powder? Let’s deconstruct the answer.
With the advent of chemicals used to treat diseases of plants and make them grow faster, it’s rare to find products that are untainted with it. But our psyllium husk powder is chemical-free—from the soil in India where our plants are grown up to the time they are harvested and processed. We also use no herbicides, pesticides and any other harmful chemicals at any point throughout the growth of our plants. We have soil certification and the approval of EU organic certification bodies to prove this.
