Why is fiber important?
Fiber offers many health benefits, especially the fiber found in psyllium! Not only does the insoluble fiber in psyllium act as a bulking agent to improve digestive regularity, its soluble fiber content blocks fat and cholesterol absorption, making it essential to heart health. Filling up on high fiber foods or taking psyllium as a fiber supplement may also help you feel full for a longer period of time and leave you with less room for less healthy food options.
The Organic India Difference
Organic India was the first company to produce and market organic psyllium. Organic India has advanced cleaning techniques that allow them to do what was once thought impossible - produce certified organic psyllium! They use a dry steam process to clean their organic psyllium. Conventional psyllium is commonly cleaned via a fumigation process using methyl bromide, then sterilized with ethylene oxide.
Organic India uses organic crop rotation practices. Conventional crops are commonly rotated with castor, cumin, mustard, and wheat, which are treated with chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. These pesticides are hazardous to the health of farmers and increase chemical toxicity in soil, water and air. Every purchase of Organic India psyllium contributes to the sustainable livelihood of the family farmers we work with in India!
