Psyllium seed powder is the ground seed of a low-growing groundcover native to India, usually Plantago ovata or one of its close relatives.

The powdered seed is taken in very small amounts with a full glass of water (or more) as a dietary supplement. In addition to fiber, psyllium seed is a good source of beta-sitosterol, beta-carotene, riboflavin, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and other nutrients.

what else you should know

psyllium seed

Psyllium seed is obtained from Plantago ovata, a plant native to Pakistan and India that is related to broadleaf or greater plantain. It is interesting to note that the common name for this plant in Pakistan is isabgol,, an adaption of the Sanskrit words “asp” and “gho” that collectively mean “horse flower.” Although this name refers to the shape of the seed, psyllium is, in fact, commonly fed to horses as a prebiotic to help prevent colic and colon impaction.

The seed doesn’t contain as much soluble fiber as psyllium husk, but is still a good source of mucilage and many nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin and zinc.
