Have you ever heard of Psyllium Husk? Psyllium is a type of small seed that is almost pure fiber.
Taking a lot of fiber is supposed to help you to control your digestion, lower cholesterol and perhaps even lower the chance of Diabetes.
Flax Seed Oil has become really popular lately as a very high Omega 3 supplement. The advantage of taking Flax seed meal is that it is a powder that can be used for cooking as an addition to flour in recipes or as I will illustrate below.
What is Psyllium Husk and Flax Seed Meal?
Psyllium Husk when you buy it in the store comes in a small bag (at least mine did) and is very dry and looks like sharp pieces of dust. Flax seed meal on the other hand is a bit darker colored but is still very small pieces.
This is the way I have been told to take this so you can try to follow my lead or use these two products in some other way.
Get your flax seed meal and your psyllium husk and mix them in a bag or container in a 1 to 1 ratio.
Now that you have this together you will quickly mix one tablespoon of the mix in a glass of water and drink it down.
The mix does not taste good or bad but it is a kind of crappy consistency. After you drink this down it is important to drink a couple of more glasses of water.
I take this mixture once in the morning and once at night before bed.
What happens once this mix goes down your gullet? The flax seed is a nice and healthy addition to your Omega-3 and your fiber but the Psyllium Husk actually swells up and turns into a gel.
The way this is supposed to help your body is by scraping and pulling off any toxins from the walls of your intestines.
Psyllium seeds swell 10-20 times their size when they come in contact with water
The Effect of Psyllium Husk and Flax Seed Meal
In my case I have been gassy a bit over the last few days in taking this.
From the people that I talk to that are taking this mix they tell me that this flax seed meal with psyllium husk makes their digestion better and also makes them feel healthier with better concentration and clearer thinking.
Try this with only a teaspoon morning and night instead of a tablespoon and see how your body reacts.
Everyone is different so you want to try it slowly and increase over the days or weeks if you feel comfortable.
