Nutrition Information

Psyllium Husks have been used traditionally in humans, and are a recognised management option for horses with sand burdens. As a soluble fibre source Psyllium Husks form a gel-like substance when exposed to water. The water absorbing properties of Psyllium means it acts as a hydroscopic sponge, allowing it to pick up and aid the removal of unwanted foreign material (such as sand and indigestible roughage) from the folds and bends of the digestive tract.
