We would like to add a note about Psyllium Husk. In an excellent research work, author Jaim Filer for Bodybuilding.com says:

Psyllium husk comes from the crushed seeds of the Plantago ovata plant. Similar to oats and wheat, psyllium is rich in soluble fiber. The benefits of soluble fiber include: Promoting regular bowel movement and preventing constipation, removing toxic waste through colon in less time, helping to prevent colon cancer by keeping an optimal pH in intestines to prevent microbes from producing cancerous substances, and keeping you full for longer by creating bulk in the stomach.

Traditionally, psyllium husk was used as a gentle bulk-forming laxative for constipation. But more recently, psyllium has been recognized for its potential role in reducing blood cholesterol. Studies have shown that psyllium husk is effective in lowering total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein or LDL (the bad cholesterol) levels.

According to the FDA, “3g to 12g soluble fiber from psyllium seed husk when included as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.” The original article is here.
