Psyllium Seed Lowers Cholesterol

May 27, 2011

One of my newsletter readers told me that Metamucil can take the place of Crestor in lowering cholesterol in a natural way. It may take longer than using a drug but this treatment is completely devoid of side effects.

Sure enough, on the Metamucil website they brag that “Clinical studies have shown that, taken daily, 7 grams of soluble fiber from psyllium husk, the amount in three to four servings (3-4 tsp) of Metamucil, may help reduce heart disease risk by lowering cholesterol.”

I prefer using psyllium husk powder, which is the unrefined parent of Metamucil. It also doesn’t have the flavorings, colorings, sugar or artificial sweeteners that “contaminate” Metamucil.

Psyllium husk powder is a soluble and insoluble fiber that swells into a gel when mixed with water. I take 1 TBSP every morning myself at least an hour before eating. I shake it quickly in 2oz of water and swallow it quickly before it turns into a gel in the cup. Then I drink another 8 oz of water to help it swell up and broom through my intestines.

If the gel consistency turns you completely off, there a capsules that you can take with a glass or two of water.
