Psyllium seed is an excellent source of soluble fiber. They are small, dull-colored seeds that when placed in water, they swell to 14 times their normal size. Psyllium seed has been used in Europe to treat intestinal conditions, such as constipation, for hundreds of years. Because of its ability to absorb water, psyllium is an excellent bulking agent, and can assist in cleansing the entire lower bowel and aid in the absorption of bowel toxins.

The psyllium used in Intestinal Tone is the highest grade available. Specifically, it is Pharmaceutical Grade, meeting the strict standards of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP). To achieve USP, every lot of psyllium (20 percent seeds plus 80 percent husks) must achieve USP quality standards for elements such as purity (no foreign seeds, materials or substances) and safety. Since seeds can be easily contaminated, the USP grade guarantees the product to be free of microbiological hazards (e.g., pathogen bacteria such as E. coli, salmonella, listeria, etc.). Our product is 100-percentpure psyllium.
