Psyllium Husks is the strongest natural dietary fiber for promoting
regularity and supporting heart health. It is most effective when used everyday,
and can be used as long as desired. Yerba Prima offers the health benefits of
Psyllium Husks in convenient vegetarian capsule form.
There are many reasons why psyllium husks are a part of daily health maintenance
for millions of people. Extensive research has shown that psyllium husks help
maintain healthy cholesterol levels, including a proper balance of HDL and LDL
cholesterol. In addition, psyllium husks help promote normal regularity. Unlike
stimulant laxatives, psyllium husks are gentle and are not habit forming. Psyllium
husks' bulking action makes elimination easier and more comfortable. At the
same time, psyllium sweeps waste and toxins more quickly out of the body, so
toxins are not reabsorbed from the colon back into the bloodstream. Gluten-Free:
psyllium husks do not contain any gluten so people who are gluten sensitive
can use them. Yerba Prima uses only premium quality psyllium husks, without
added sweeteners, colors or additives.
FOR REGULARITY: Psyllium husks promote easy, healthy elimination and sweep
waste out of the colon more quickly. To maintain regularity and speed waste
removal, take 4 capsules 1 to 3 times a day, with food.
FOR HEART HEALTH: To help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and support heart
health, take 5 capsules 3 times a day, with food.
