Description: Psyllium is an annual herb native to Europe, Asia and North America, two other species of Plantago are also sold as Psyllium these are P. psyillium and P. indica. P. ovate grows to a height of 30–46cm. The leaves are opposite, lance like and approximately 19cm in length. The hermaphrodite pale green flowers are obovate on terminal flower spikes. The individual inflorescences have 4 round-ovate lobes and 4 creamy-white stamens. Psyllium husk is the fibrous outer coating of psyllium seeds which contains soluble and insoluble natural fibres.

Interesting Fact: Did you know that each individual psyllium plant can produce up to 15,000 seeds from its flowers? Psyllium husks are the outer coating of the seeds, they were once used as an old French aperient remedy for constipation, today psyllium husk is used in the food industry as a thickener, stabiliser and bulking agent for such products as ice-cream, jam and chocolate. The husks are high in soluble fibre and as such they are often used in over the counter products to help prevent constipation.

SUGGESTED USE

The powdered husk can be used as a starch for starching linen type fabrics. It can also be added to breakfast cereals, breads, biscuits and cereal bars to add fibre. No other non-medicinal uses are known for this herb.
