On May 22, 1997 USFDA approved the use of psyllium seed husks as an additional source of soluble fiber, establishing a link between taking Isabgol and reduced risk of coronary heart disease.

Constipation is a very common complaint across the world. Its main cause is sluggish bowel movement. Isabgol is a product that helps maintain regular bowel motility and facilitate the passage of stool. Pharmacological action of Isabgol is due to the high content of fiber polysaccharides, which have a pronounced hydrophilic and form a gel. Passing through the gastrointestinal tract, the gel mass works on the principle of molecular “sponge”, normalizes and homogenize the internal environment of the intestine, absorbs toxins and gases, actively reduces pain and bloating, helps reduce fat absorption, slows gastric emptying, thereby promoting normalization of lipid exchange and weight loss.

The inertial part of psyllium seed husks helps provide a constant volume of solid material irrespective of other aspects of the diet or any disease condition of the intestine. Some recent studies have also demonstrated that the use of Isabgol is promising in lowering cholesterol and controlling diabetes. The mechanism of action is achieved by effectively reducing the absorption of total and LDL-cholesterol, bile acids and glucose, decreasing its peak concentration in the blood. Increased excretion of nitrogen in feces under the action of the drug actively lowers the level of urea in plasma. 

Psyllium seed husks are used as the main ingredient in the manufacture of such drugs as: Metamucil, Colon Cleanse, Serutan, Fybogel, Bonvit, Effersyllium and Konsyl.
