Consuming psyllium husk on a daily basis can lower LDL cholesterol
The February 2019 issue of Harvard Heart Letter published by the Harvard Medical School has thrown the spotlight on a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. This study found that consuming psyllium husk on a daily basis can lower LDL cholesterol, also known as “bad” cholesterol, as well as two other lipid markers for heart disease.
Psyllium, a soluble fiber from the husk of the Plantago ovata seed, is one of the most common supplemental fibers, given its recognition for cholesterol lowering by major government and health agencies.
Psyllium is a popular fiber supplement used to treat constipation (Metamucil is one familiar brand, but many similar products are available). Psyllium husk also helps lower LDL cholesterol levels as well as two other lipid markers for heart disease, according to a study in the Sept. 15, 2018, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
