Risks of Psyllium Husk

Psyllium husk is the covering of the seeds found on the plantago psyllium plant. It's an excellent source of dietary fibre, offering 71g fibre in one-third of a cup. The same amount of oat bran, on the other hand, has only 5g of fibre. Because of its high fibre content, psyllium is often used to improve digestion, lower cholesterol and alleviate constipation. There are, however, risks with taking psyllium husk.

Bloating

Taking psyllium can cause gas or bloating because the fibre does not break down until it reaches the large intestine. You should begin taking psyllium in small doses and slowly work up to the full dose recommended by your product.

Slow Digestion

Risks of Psyllium Husk

Psyllium slows digestion that can delay your body's absorption of medications or vitamins. You should take your psyllium at least two to 4 hours before your medication or other supplements. Taking too much psyllium could also reduce your body's ability to absorb certain minerals.

Constipation

When taken with water, psyllium alleviates constipation but if you do not take at least six glasses of water throughout the day, the psyllium swells and causes constipation.

Choking

You should take the psyllium husk with at least 236ml. of water. Swallowing psyllium with insufficient water could cause the fibre to swell in your throat and cause choking. You should also avoid taking psyllium if you have trouble swallowing.

Allergic Reaction

In rare cases, taking soluble fibre for long periods of time can cause an allergic reaction including rashes, itching or even anaphylaxis, which can lead to death. If you believe you are having an allergic reaction, seek medical care immediately.
