Psyllium Seed husk Juice / Isobgoler Shorbot

Psyllium seed husks are indigestible and are a source of soluble dietary fibre for relief constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. Psyllium husk can improve lipid control in Type 2 diabetes. Psyllium husks usually need to soak in water for a minimum of 30- 60 minutes before consumption. If you don’t like the sliminess, soak it just before consumption. Psyllium seed husk(isobgol) is available any supermarket health food section or organic super market.
