Ashland, Oregon, June 2017—For those seeking a vegan, organic, gluten-free way to promote regularity, heart health, and weight control, Yerba Prima now offers organic psyllium in capsules made entirely from vegetables.

Unlike gelatin based capsules, created from bone and other animal products put through a process to make a gel-like substance, veggie caps are created using cellulose, which is naturally derived from plants and allows rapid delivery to the body.
Those interested in the health benefits of all natural, organic supplements will also appreciate that doctors often recommend psyllium to provide extra daily fiber for anyone with irregularity. On contact with water, psyllium thickens into a gel-like substance. This acts like a broom to sweep waste from the colon, so it does not get re-absorbed through the colon wall back into the bloodstream to re-circulate in the body.

Psyllium also keeps the lining of the colon healthier, since it cleans out pockets in the colon that may accumulate toxic waste material. Unlike stimulant laxatives, psyllium is gentle and not habit forming.

In support of heart health, medical studies show that psyllium can help lower high LDL cholesterol levels. It also helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, including “good” high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in the bloodstream. This aids in the removal of bad LDL cholesterol from the body.

High-fiber nutrients like psyllium can also promote a feeling of fullness, which assists with weight control.
