I don’t eat a lot of food supplements, but this has been part of my nutrition for years. My running friend, Marcsi, suggested years ago, and God knows why I tried it, but I didn’t mind it.
In addition, few know that endurance competitions (running, triathlon) often fail in digestion. The longer the distance, the more typical.
The body prioritizes and relieves energy, especially in the heart, lungs and muscles that carry out exercise. Digestion economizes, so there is often a feeling of nausea, diarrhea on long ultra-distances, but even at marathon. Refreshing is very important during the race to prevent these symptoms, but I think the daily preparation of the digestive system is also a key issue in this case. I can’t miss cancer prevention here either, especially that in our family colon cancer had already eventuated.
As is usually the case for herbs, their names are not very user-friendly, marketable. In phytotics and in scientific articles the Latin names of herbs are commonly refered to. (I have to add, sometimes it made me discouraged of natural therapies because people refer to herbs using their Latin names, as if they were ultra-scientific stuff for a special strata. They simply do not make them attractive for human beings.) Hungarian names are difficult too, but still better than Latin. I also didn’t find any English version, so I will reluctantly call it Psyllium Husk.
Psyllium Husk is native to India and Pakistan.
A fiber that swells in the water and forms a gelatinous texture.
The fiber cannot be digested by our body, so it just goes through our digestive system. If it gets into the digestive tract, the accumulated pathogens, superflous fungi, and bacteria will slowly be sweeped off. It cleans almost everything off the body what is no longer needed. It is also highly recommended for dieters because it effectively reduces hunger while not consuming kcal into the body. This is due to the fact that it contains about 80-85% of fiber.
It can also be used in its natural state, or it can be broken, dried, crushed or can be even obtained in a capsule. Most importantly, take it with a lot of fluids!
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that regular consumption of psyllium husk reduces the risk of coronary artery disease and can also help keeping diabetes level. It also normalizes blood cholesterol levels.
The Maryland Medical Center recommends mixing a tablespoon of psyllium husk in a glass of water and consuming it as a dietary supplement. I would overwrite it because it is hard for me to clean it out of the glass afterwards, especially if I don’t rinse it right away. According to my ex husband, because of the jelly material, it also clogged the dishwasher, so I do not try the drain either. That’s why I take it with a spoon, letting a minimal husk on it and I drink the water right after.
So far, I’ve only taken it in a ground form, but now through LEPICOL Plus I take and add it with other digestive aids (probiotics and prebiotic) daily!
LEPICOL Plus has five useful bacterial strains (probiotics) and inulin (inulin, an indigestible, water-soluble fiber with prebiotic properties that positively influences the bacteria flora of the intestine. Prebiotics are substances that are resistant to digestive enzymes and thus remain unchanged to the colon, where they stimulate the proliferation of useful bacteria in the intestinal flora.).
It should be taken 25-30 minutes before meal. It has an other very blessing effect, I’ll tell you in DM if you are interested!
