Psyllium Husks, Uses, Dosage and Side Effects

Video taken from the channel: Dr. Eric Berg DC


Most psyllium husk supplements are unflavored but some manufacturers add artificial berry, pink lemonade, or orange flavoring to improve the taste. Psyllium husk is also used to control blood sugar spikes after a meal, lower cholesterol, decrease appetite, improve blood flow, and decrease the body’s absorption of carbohydrates. Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. It sometimes goes by the name ispaghula.

It’s most commonly known as a laxative. However, research shows that. Psyllium is a natural shrub-like herb used to make psyllium seed husk products which are most commonly used for natural constipation relief. They are also used for diarrhea, to lower cholesterol, manage blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and weight management.

Psyllium powder can be taken in water or another liquid by itself. Psyllium husk comes from the seeds of a plantain variety in the genus Plantago. Plantains (not related to the plantain banana) are one of the most widely dispersed wild herbs in the world. Common plantain or Plantago major have been used historically by herbalists for centuries as a nutritious edible and medicinal plant.

The most common use of Psyllium seed husks in the United States is for its soluble and insoluble fiber content. A fair amount of research exists on the cardiovascular benefits of fiber when used in conjunction with a modified diet and lifestyle.*. Hence, to reduce high cholesterol, take 1 tsp. psyllium husk three times a day. 11.

Benefits Of Psyllium Husk – Heart Health. Psyllium husk has some heart health benefits when used regularly. In fact, the fiber content in this husk helps to reduce cholesterol levels, which, in turn, helps to protect your heart. Traditional uses and benefits of Psyllium Psyllium has been used as a safe and effective laxative for thousands of years in Western herbal medicine.

Both the dried seeds and the seed husks are demulcent, emollient and laxative. Psyllium husk — or psyllium powder, which is simply the ground-up husks — comes from the seeds of the herb Plantago ovata, and is usually sold as a fiber supplement, but it also acts as a bulk-forming laxative. If you’re going to take a laxative, psyllium is one of the simplest and shows promise for providing a few other health benefits too. Psyllium /ˈsɪliəm/, or ispaghula (isabgol) /ˌɪspəˈɡuːlə/, is the common name used for several members of the plant genus Plantago whose seeds are used commercially for the production of mucilage.

Psyllium is mainly used as a dietary fiber to relieve symptoms of both constipation and mild diarrhea, and occasionally as a food thickener. It is commonly used as a food ingredient in manufactured breakfast cereals which may contribute to a healthy lifestyle by improving blood cho. Bentonite and psyllium are used together as part of cleansing program.

Proponents of cleanses believe shakes made from these ingredients will ease the discomfort of constipation and diarrhea, ease indigestion pain, and rid the body of parasites, bacteria, and viruses.

  • Its surprising how people have not heard of naturekindness .com They’ve got the best detox formulae in the market. Been using them for a while now.

  • the dosage on a bag i bought said 1 tablespoon and take it 3 times a day I am sure they just said that so i have to buy it more often. That would be very unpleasant to have to drink it 3 times a day and a tablespoon of psyllium would need at least 1 litre of water for it not to end up a coagulated blob. only take one teaspoon a day and I notice a difference so i stick to that

  • Its surprising how people have not heard of naturekindness .com Many of my friends use them for regular detoxification. Also, they do yoga every day and follow a good diet.

  • Would you recommend buying whole psyllium husk and then powdering it yourself for recipes that call for powdered? Also, would buying powdered need to be be refrigerated? Thanks!

  • I have been noticing alot of keto uses for psyllium husk in recipes as a gluten replacement. And was wondering if it is in fact low carb.

  • Dr Berg is bread made from coconut oil keto friendly? Can you recommend other flour types that are keto friendly to be used to make bread?

  • Dr berg in a previous video you recommended against psyllium husk where u cited a study that found it causes colon polyps a pre-cursor to colon cancer. Has that position changed because i stopped using the product based on your video, has your position now subsequently changed because the husk worked great for hemorrhoids but your video scared me can you please clarify for me

  • Hey Vicky.. please give a diet plan for pregnancy in obese women so that weight does not increase a lot and get all the nutrition

  • good morning doctor,
    have you an idea how get rid off a chalazion which reoffend after several interventions?
    thank you in advance for your response

  • In Pakistan every house has this.
    But now I found out we were curing few issues and causing some more issues same time.
    Such as not taking enough water. Gas problem.
    Iron deficiency.
    Also in constipation some people consume this as a cure but now I got it why they end up in more problems.
    Thanks doctor for such a informative video!

  • I took this twice. The first time it helped clean me out.
    The second time I had acute diarrhea & vomiting to the point that I had to go to the ER & was put on a saline drip, anti-diarrheal & anti-nausea medication & they sent me home with Ondansetron which I had to use for a week…

  • Grazie per le informazioni che ci fornisce la seguo con grande interesse anche se non parlo l’inglese la capisco ugualmente. Vorrei assumere lo psillyum però desideravo sapere se è anche coagulante in quanto assumo fluidificanti del sangue.

  • When taking psyllium seed husks, pour your glass of water, (your liquid), then quickly pour your measured amount of psyllium, stir quickly, and get it down. If you are slow, it will congeal, and you will almost have to eat it, which I find unpleasant. 0lenty of water, one day, you will forget that, and semi-damp psyllium will attach to your esophagus, draw moisture from the surface, and get stuck. It will dislodge, but drink plenty of water with it. Take it in a smallish glass of water, stir quick, swallow, then drink plenty of water.

  • Mix psyllium husk in coffee along with unsweetened cocoa powder unsweetened bakers chocolate and a fat of choice ( butter, heavy cream etc ) sweetener of choice blend and chill will make a keto chocolate pudding

  • _Vit. B-2 (riboflavin), in exccess or toxicity can cause Liver damage, but getting excess amounts are rare because the body does not store vit. B-2, it must be replenished daily as B and C are water soluble vitamins! A, D, E, and K are fat soluable vitamins, meanung they are, and retained by the fatty tissues!! Vitamin excess or toxicity is usually due to overdose, taking to much, vitamin supplements or injection! 03/18/20 [email protected]:55PM.

  • _Itresting presenratio n! Why you wanna de crease Vit. B-2, (riboflavin), and why do many people have a iron overload/excess??��️❤️❤️��❤️���������������� 03/18/20.Wed.3:25PM.

  • Dr Berg, all that people will be eating and stocking up on is pasta, rice, grains, bread etc for weeks/months due to the corona virus pandemic. They are not eating or buying veggies as they go bad quickly amd not practical. Please make a video on the effect of this as I think the results will show on a mass level. Also please make a video on how we can prepare for the virus and self quarantining while staying keto?

  • Dr Berg, in a previous video you mentioned that there were studies saying that it can cause colon cancer. Has this been verified? Are there any more recent studies with more definite answer? Thank you

  • Hi Dr. Berg, I find frustration because you have many videos that advise which vitamins and supplements to take. All the lists are different. Here is an idea for a video: • A comprehensive list of all vitamins/ Minerals/ Supplements necessary. You could have 2nor 3 lists, 1.) All necessary vitamins/ Minerals/ Supplements, 2.) Minimum and maximum amounts. I want to utilize just below the maximum in starting out, 3.) Important supplements to focus on to fulfill multiple requirements, (e.g.; Nutritional Yeast fulfills multiple Vitamin B requirements), 4.) Vegetable fulfillments, (Separate Video?), A comprehensive list of vegetables and percentage of each nutrient per oz., or other unit.
    I am trying to revisit certain videos, Wade through some videos repeating nutrients, some having completely different nutrients…
    I am a member. I paid for a year. I have barely used it these many months. I started,…. I started to get on Keto. I was sent to videos that taught me beginners concepts, like don’t lose weight to lose weight, eat healthy. It’s like signing 9n to a Calculus class, and having classes, “1 + 1 = 2, 1 + 2 = 3, 1 + 2 = 3, 1 + 3 = 4,…” I don’t want to take a course in remedial nutrition, I want the advanced keto and OMAD, concicely and thoroughly, and organized, not some vitamins in chapter 2, others in chapter 4, extras in chapter 10. All vitamins in one section.

  • It kills my gut/intestines. The pain is horrible, and I’m left with pain and soreness for some time after. Feels like mouth ulcers.

  • I used psyllium husk caps, as an additional fiber source on keto. Initially, I really enjoyed it. However, after taking it for a couple of months, I became anemic. Be careful.

  • I have been consuming Psillium husks for 40 years, at 20 I was diagnosed with IBS, which eventually turned out to be caused by gluten intolerance.
    However, eating the psillium did me so much good, I carried on with it all my life, never get constipated.

  • I use psyllium in keto baking to hold everything together and to add much needed fiber to the diet. I absolutely love the stuff. My bum bum approves!

  • I’ve been cold for weeks. Just perpetually cold more than usual. I use psyllium husk occasionally in a keto baking recipe, and wonder if its reducing my iron:thinking:

  • Nice video, great demonstration. Just fyi there are studies that show reducing fiber intake can reduce or eliminate constipation. Also I’ve seen multiple people eating high fiber diets (because they think its healthy to do) develop SBO.

    I think psyllium is a good tool for keto cooking but its nutritional benefits are questionable.

  • It needs to be 100% mixed in water.
    If not you might get a wet lump that is dry in the middle.
    This could latch on somewhere in your digestive system.
    It might then burst, releasing the dry insides that will swell and form a blockage.
    It won’t last for life, but it might give some discomfort next day or two.

  • U can’t have a stressful day after listening to a Dr Eric video voice is so relaxing n informative the calm ones are usually the crazy ones though lol

  • 0:49 “Seven grams”? SEVEN whole, complete, whopping grams of Psyllium Husk Fibre? Daily?

    Perhaps it could put a brilliant, shiny polish on the inside of one’s bowels, but, ain’t that alotta Psyllium Husks to be cramming into such a confined space; every day?

    In addition to the prescribed SEVEN Daily Cups of Raw, Organic Leaves, how much more of indigestibles does one really, really-really, reeeeally need to be pushing through one’s intestines, every darned day?

  • Uh constipation is one of the side effects!?! That would be like taking anti-depressants and the side effect is depression. I can’t wrap my mind around how that is logical.

  • Chronic extreme emotional stress attacks and panic attacks gave me heart problems..magnesum supplements make things worse so are most carbs giving me tachycardia what can i do to fix that? Salads help but still get arythmia attacks and chronic fatigue is always there.

  • Thanks for the video Dr. Berg. I have never tried this since my bowels work fine. Still like to learn new things. Have a great day

  • Hi Doctor this may be hurts!n how come useful for constipation n side effect constipation!! Anyways using it for last 8 to 9 years!Decreasing the effect on constipation! Please advise!

  • I use whole psyllium husk & ground flax seed as a substitute for bread crumbs in my keto meatballs & meatloaf… I use 18 grams of each, mixed with 2 oz of water, for every pound of ground beef. Of course it’s not as good as the evil wheat, but it does the job!

  • Hello Dr, plz answer my query
    Does drinking psyllium husk with water during intermittent fasting in the fasting window break the fast?

  • Hello Doctor
    I received your product (vitamine D3 & K2). It is really great, but doctor, when I eat it in breakfast with olive oil, I improve by 80% because I have calcium deposited in the salivary glands area, which causes me to swell in that area and thus my face changes slightly when swelling, but when I take vitamins that goes The swelling disappears but is not complete and when I wake up in the morning I find the salivary glands swollen again which means that calcium is deposited again knowing that my vitamin D level is 20.8. (Not enough)
    And I want to know, Doctor, where is the problem, is it in vitamins or poor absorption?
    I want the bulge to go away permanently and my face to look normal.
    thank you Doctor.

  • I use Psyllium husk only for baking once in a while. For lowering blood sugar and insulin level I prefer Apple Cider Vinegar more

  • Its surprising how people have not heard of naturekindness .com Many of my friends use them for regular detoxification. Also, they do yoga every day and follow a good diet.

  • It hasn’t done much for me and it bloats me terribly. I’m drinking a tea called smooth move that has worked for other people. Maybe I should cut down on the 2 tablespoons of psyllium husk to 1 tablespoon or maybe it’s in the meta-Meusel itself that is the problem.

  • Take only for 4 to 5 days and then stop and after 10-15 days do same. Regular consumption will cause appetite loss and gas formation as it cold in nature. Long term usage will make body heat to go out and it will lead nerve weakness. Enjoy in moderation. It’s cleaning and detoxification medicine not tonic.

  • Yay. Now that’s something I do have in our cupboard. Lol. Thank you for sharing this important information with us all, & take care of you & yours too. ❤����

  • When I was on a strict keto, ispaghol helped me a LOT because I couldn’t get enough fiber in my diet otherwise. It is a godsend. I owe my 50+ kg weight loss to it

  • Dr.Berg I really want to ask you something about Keto. I ve been doing OMAD keto for 7 days now,I dont have cravings which is great and i can see changes in my body. But please can you tell me why I have headache and I dont have so much energy? All my OMADS are keto food which I found recipe on YouTube and internet. I dont know what’s wrong

  • Hey Vicky
    You are an angel enlightening us with your vast knowledge and research.So grateful to you ❤️Stay blessed and my best wishes to you

  • Mix 1 Tbsp of Psyllium Husk Powder with 1 cup of liquid like water, juice, or milk, before meals, thrice a day for 5 days to lose up to 3Kgs. If you are buying Psyllium Husk Capsules, then take 1 capsule thrice a day, before meals for 5 days. Make sure to be on a healthy diet else you won’t see the results. Maintenance Diet Plan https://youtu.be/rDShxjtQ_N4

  • Its my first time trying keto meal,it’s not evident to find such ingredient in our side i mean africa western countries. Substitution psyllium will wellcome.

  • Can you add an international shopping link for Psyllium Husk, I bought 2 boxes from my visit to India, ‘The Sidhpur Sat-Isabgol Factory’ but I want to keep going on using it. Thank you.

  • Its cured my ibs and diaherah in one day chest pain gone acid reflex gone also to do with going vegan and this guy had me thinking my bladder and night urination pattern may change too

  • Psyllium Husk has many health benefits including weight loss. We just uploaded a video on our channel on how to use it for weight loss and other potential health benefits.

  • Hello Keto King! If a bread recipe I want to try calls for 4 teaspoons (15 g) psyllium husk powder, how much whole psyllium husk should I use? Thank you!

  • The Telephone brand of Sat Isabgol is very popular in India. It’s available in most Indian grocery stores in the UK. Indians have used it for years, primarily for digestive purposes.

  • Sorry I didn’t understand can you please clarify. You mean drinking 1 tbsp plus one cup of water for 3 times. That means 3 tbsp of psyllium husk with 3 cups???

  • Problems with psyllium husk is it is a laxative. You have to be careful not to use very large amount in recipes. Unless you like sitting on the toilet all the next day. Cut the amount in a recipe by half and substitute the other half with ground flax seed. Not only will it affect you so strongly the flax will help take the egg taste out of your Breads and dose. Try it and think you’ll be happy with it. Or maybe you just like sitting in the bathroom looking at YouTube recipes all day.

  • Psyllium husk is the main ingredient in Metamucil, used to lower cholesterol and blood sugar. It acts as a mild bile acid sequestrant, preventing the reabsorption of bile that has emulsified dietary fat in the intestines. The bile is made in the liver from LDL-cholesterol pulled from the blood. Instead of being reabsorbed (its natural intended purpose), it is excreted out in feces.

    This is just one of many effects it has in the body.

  • Yes this method is told by one very famous indian dietician for weight loss. I don’t knw the exact way but my friend suggested me to follow this as it’s included in her diet plan.

  • I get the Indian organic psyllium husk and boy let me tell u! Cleans me out every morning atleast 4 times and I’m good for the rest of the day!

  • I tried this for lowering my cholesterol, after about 4 months, my cholesterol was down 10% from 229 to 109. I just took 1 tsp per day of psyllium (not Metamucil as it has all kinds of other stuff in it). Plus, I’ve had all the other benefits 😉

    I just measured out 7 grams and it’s just under 1 tablespoon. We appreciate it when you add amounts!

  • I’ve been using psyillium husks for cleaning my colon for years!! Drink it in water every morning…add some wheatgrass juice…. keeps me regular and not constipated����

  • Great video. I ordered your ebook and WOW! It’s 340 pages and full of everything you need to know about keto. Nicely done too. Super professional. Order it!

  • I made some naan bread with coconut flour and Psyllium husk fibers and believe me, I had multiple trips to the toilet for the next few days after eating them!! So if you guys have a bowel movement problem, make some coconut/psyllium husk naan bread and things will happen!!!

  • Oh, gosh. Putting a spoonful in a glass of water???? YUK!
    Put a teaspoon of it in your scrambled eggs.
    Put a teaspoon of it in your fat bombs.
    Put a half-teaspoon of it in a large recipe of salad dressing.
    Put a teaspoon of it in your protein smoothie……
    Always put it in your Keto King bread recipes!!!
    Adding fiber to carbs slows down the glucose response to less of a spike and more of a bump. This will positively effect the Insulin also.

  • Thanks for this information. I have the laxative(which i never use) and have a vitamix. Now I know I can use it after I turn it into powder for my keto bread. Please make more of these videos.

  • Thanks it is about time someone informing people how to make good yeast bread so they can enjoy.I was a baker I have good knowledge about psyllium baking gravy and ketones ice cream

  • i make a 10part water to one part psylliumseed
    one quart & shake & drink ALL within 15 seconds.
    relax & let it get in2 the intestine. THEN go out & do hard physical work all day. the magic happens… @ night or next day a solid tube impression of yur intestine comes out full of AAALOT’a old weird shit & stuff. FEELS FANTASTIC afterwards… great relief 2 get the intestine very cleaned out.

  • My Doc explained that Net Carbs are like taking over the counter medicine whereas Total Carbs is like taking prescription strength medicine.

  • So I understand that you cannot interchange whole psyllium husk and powder in recipes because they “measure” differently when using cups measurements. However, what if I interchange them via gram measure and not cups measure. Like, I would sub 20g of whole husks to 20g of powder husk? What difference in my baked product’s texture and taste would that make? I have been researching about this, but no one is saying anything about the taste and texture.

  • Could this product help a paralyze bedridden person that cant have a bowel movement, it has to be remove bit by bit with hand as often as possible.

  • Don’t have to taste anything. Pinch your nose while guzzling it down, keep holding your nose and drink some clear water after to wash taste out of your mouth then release your nose.

  • Concerned about timing. Between ingesting and actual poop. I hate going at work. Should I take it before bed to go in the morning before work?

  • So nice to see this video,, GREAT VIDEO. it time for Michelle to order PERFECT P.O.OP. w/ my issues. i was doing well, but it time for PERFECT POOP,,.Take Care Dr Rosenfeld.

  • I take psyllium husk every single day. It has gotten rid of my constipation. It doesn’t give me gas like the drugs the doctors give me. My cholesterol was 190 and it’s down to 160 in just one month. My blood pressure was 129/80 and now its 119/70. My pre-diabetes is gone. My blood sugar was over 250 and now it’s around 120. I’m no longer pre-diabetic. I started at 355 lbs and I’m currently down to 317 lbs. I’m off my IBD meds. No more symptoms. I am no longer high risk for colon cancer. I’m just so happy to get rid of the constipation. I’m losing weight well. I am no longer worried I’m going to get colon cancer.

  • I don’t have poo problems but I do like taking this stuff to help suppress appetite so I can lose weight. I also eat a bowl of Fiber One cereal almost everyday, a really great source of fiber with no added sugars

  • What an excellent presentation. After watching this video I am certainly going to use psyllium husk powder as an adjunct to my keto diet

  • You need to drink a glass of water or juice straight after you took the husk because it swells up so much.
    Plus it also helps to bind you up after a bout of diarrhoea

  • Can  I combine Psyllium Husk with Metamucil? I am using Psyllium Husk to lower my cholesterol while using Metamucil for digestive issues.

  • I have seen medical field students with that ridiculous stethoscope hanging around their necks even in the bus stop. How immature. What they are trying to prove? Wise up humans!

  • I enjoy fruits and vegetables as well as psyllium husk fiber supplementation to my everyday diet! I have never had such satisfying bowel movements on a daily basis, as I do when I drink psyllium husk mixed with water!

  • Can you tell me if it affects birt control since it has a laxative affect? I would take psyllium in the am… birth control at night

  • Dear natural cures thanks for the meditation education I love the psyllium because I am a big bathroom enthusiast laughing out loud and another natural way to reduce cholesterol for carnivores Peace and love

  • Chia and flax seeds are great to. I soak chia seeds in coconut milk overnight to make a pudding.

    It’s Very important to take plenty of water when taking psyllium

  • Boy Italians are the healthiest people in the word! N.1 and they live longer! 40% carbs in their diet mostly from wheat. How stupid can anybody be to do just the opposite? Keto gives you results in short term but will destroy your body long term. Stupid stupid stupid way to live life! Pure foods is the answer

  • Exactly what am drinking every morn when I wake up,I had problems on digestion system and now am good and I feel relax wen I take a cup of it…

  • Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is soooooooooo true i’m lauphing at this i promise you this is sooo true i took pictures of the flooters for the first week because i could not beleive how much came out, and the wiping part is soooo true….. so get you some. the weight lose is true also, well it was more of inches from the start and then the weight i ammm a beleiver
