Cytoplan Psyllium Husk Powder, used as part of the programme, the purpose of the Psyllium Husks is to help maintain healthy, efficient intestines. The powder has to be taken quickly as it thickens very rapidly.
Psyllium Husks are a good form of dietary fibre. As they pass through the body they turn into a gel, which expands considerably during peristalsis and helps collect the waste products.
Flaxseed Oil is one of the richest seed oil sources of Omega 3 alpha linolenic acid, of which it contains an average of 50%. The Omega 3 family of fatty acids helps to balance the body's inflammatory response and therefore a supply of this oil is beneficial to help support a healthy digestive tract.
Within the oil there will also be small quantities of proteins and phospholipids to help with the emulsification and absorption of the oil as well as small amounts of a selection of vitamins and minerals, but the primary component of interest is the alpha linolenic acid. It is this fatty acid which helps maintain the function and integrity of cellular membranes and participates in the regulation of cholesterol metabolism.
Psyllium husks come from the outside coat of the seeds of the plant Plantago Ovato. The husk provides a good source of fibre and is good used as part of a cleanse programme. Please ensure that you take them with sufficient water because the muscular movement of the digestive tract turns the powder into a gel.
