Poudre de Psyllium

Isabgol ou poudre de psyllium est un remède maison indien courant contre la constipation. Il est reconnu comme un excellent laxatif car sa fibre insoluble aide à ramollir les selles et à se dilater, ce qui améliore les mouvements de l’intestin, puis aide à repousser le contenu de l’estomac hors du corps. De plus, sa texture collante au contact de l'eau aide à absorber l'humidité tout en aidant à humidifier les selles durcies et à soulager ensuite la constipation. La cosse de psyllium peut absorber 14 fois plus d’eau que son poids. Pour soulager la constipation, mélangez 5 à 10 grammes de Sat-Isabgol avec de l'eau, du lait, du sirop, des jus de fruits, du miel, des smoothies, du yaourt ou du lassi avant de vous coucher.

Qu'est-ce que la poudre de psyllium? La poudre de psyllium est obtenue à partir des graines de la plante Plantago Ovata par broyage. C'est l'enveloppe membraneuse externe recouvrant les graines de Plantago Ovata. Cette plante contient environ 70% de fibres solubles et 30% de fibres insolubles. Une cuillère à café donne environ 3 grammes de fibres.

Lorsqu'elle est consommée avec 3 cuillères à soupe de yogourt, le psyllium aide à soulager la diarrhée. Le yaourt donne des probiotiques à votre estomac pour guérir l'infection et le psyllium aide à durcir les selles. Assurez-vous de le prendre 2 fois par jour après un repas.

Le psyllium contribue également à la perte de poids, car il vous fait sentir remplit plus longtemps en évitant les fringales. Consommez la poudre de psyllium mélangée à de l'eau et du jus de citron l'estomac vide le matin pour aider à perdre du poids.

Le psyllium est également un excellent ingrédient à consommer pour maintenir un système digestif en bonne santé. Selon l'ayurveda, il permet de nettoyer l'ama: les déchets toxiques qui tapissent souvent les parois de l'estomac. Le psyllium aide également à nettoyer le côlon et stimule le processus digestif en renforçant les mouvements péristaltiques et la mobilité intestinale. Il aide également à lutter contre l'acidité en formant une couche dans l'estomac.

Le psyllium aide également à contrôler le taux de cholestérol dans le sang et à protéger votre cœur. Lorsqu'il est consommé, il forme une fine couche le long de vos parois intestinales et empêche l'absorption du cholestérol par les aliments que vous mangez.

Le psyllium est également idéal pour les diabétiques car il aide à réguler la glycémie. La gélatine qu'il contient ralentit l'absorption du glucose.
