Organic Psyllium is derived from small, reddish brown and black seeds of the plantago psyllium plant. Odorless and tasteless, there are several species of the plant but seed husks from Plantago ovata (also known as blonde psyllium) are of the best quality and contain the highest fiber content. Psyllium is rich in soluble fiber and similar to the type of fiber found in oats, wheat, and barley; however, psyllium is gluten-free unlike wheat. As a pure dietary fiber, psyllium is composed mostly of hemicellulose. It is not digested in the small intestine and passes through the body until it is partially broken down in the colon where psyllium is utilized as a food source for friendly flora. Mostly, psyllium acts as a sponge in the intestinal tract, swelling as it absorbs water and waste material in the bowels. This forms a soft, bulky mass that passes through the colon more quickly (keeping potentially toxic waste moving in the colon) and evacuates more smoothly and easily. The Food and Drug Administration has approved the following label claim for psyllium; "Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams of soluble fiber per day may reduce the risk of heart disease." One serving of 100% Organic Psyllium provides 8 grams of this soluble fiber.

100% Organic Psyllium has been certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI). QAI is the most recognized organic certifying body utilized by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Moreover, Organic Psyllium's ingredients have been cultivated without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers, and contain no additives or artificial sweeteners. This formula has been reviewed and met QAI's stringent qualification process for purity and potency.
