Indian plantain – the king of digestion
Indian plantain (Psyllium husk) is an excellent source of dietary fibres, and as such is used as a natural support to the digestive tract. The fibres in the Indian plantain are water-soluble and therefore swell when in contact with water. When the fibre swells, its volume increases significantly and reduces the feeling of hunger. Therefore, in addition to regulating digestion, plantain is excellent for weight loss.
How does it work?
Indian plantain (Plantago psyllium) is an excellent source of dietary fibre, so it is often called a “gut cleanser”, besides, it acts as a natural remedy for weight loss.
After ingestion, plantain swells in the gastrointestinal tract and forms a mass in the intestine, which binds the substances that remain in the intestine during its journey through the digestive tract, thus “cleansing” it. If we consume it before a meal, it gives us a feeling of satiety, which prevents overeating.
Is a rich source of dietary fibre
LCHF (low carb-high fat) diets often eliminate cereals, whole grains and fruits from the diet plan, which means that the amount of dietary fibre consumed is greatly reduced. Indian plantain is an excellent source of fibre. One teaspoon contains as much as 4g, so we can quickly and easily replace the dietary fibre.
Indian plantain and baking
Indian plantain is also excellent for baking. It is often used in gluten-free recipes, due to its ability to form a gel, which prevents the drying of gluten-free products.
Therefore, if you suffer from gluten intolerance, and at the same time love to cook and try new recipes, Indian plantain is the miracle ingredient you need. It is great for making cakes, bread, pancakes and or just add it to your smoothie.
