Psyllium Ingredient Manufacturer

Psyllium, also known as ispaghula, is the common name of several members of the plant genus Plantago. For supplement manufacturing, the seeds of these plants are turned into powdered form.

Seeds of psyllium have many health benefits, among which the most notable ones are aiding weight loss, improving heart health, and strengthening the digestive system.

1. Strengthens the Digestive System

Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative, which means that it soaks up water in your gut to make bowel movements much easier — which is why it promotes regularity without increasing flatulence.

Since it promotes healthy bowel movements, psyllium is commonly used as a supplement for improving overall digestive health.

Furthermore, psyllium is also a prebiotic — a substance required for healthy probiotics to grow in the gut. Without a good amount of healthy bacteria (probiotics), your immune system cannot function properly.

On top of being a prebiotic and a bulk-forming laxative, psyllium also:

  • Reduces risk of certain infections
  • Eases the effect of acute inflammation
  • Helps our body prevent certain chronic illnesses

Perhaps the most impressive benefit of psyllium for our digestive health is that it softens our stool provided that we drink plenty of water with it.

For this reason, pysllium is commonly used as a supplement for easing mild diarrhea and preventing complications associated with constipation, such as hemorrhoids and anal fissures.

2. Improves Heart Health

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and high cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for heart disease.

Multiple recent studies have shown that psyllium can help people manage their cholesterol level.

According to this study on overweight people, taking psyllium supplements for six weeks is highly effective at lowering cholesterol levels.

Furthermore, some studies also conclude that psyllium supplements improve heart health by lowering blood pressure, improving lipid levels, and strengthening heart muscles.

3. May Help You Lose Weight and Prevent Diabetes

Maintaining a healthy weight is a big concern for many people worldwide, especially those suffering from a chronic illness like diabetes. 

Besides improving heart health and strengthening the digestive system, psyllium can also aid weight loss. 

Since psyllium absorbs liquid in your body, it can give you a feeling of being “full”, which can help you eat less and as a result, lose more weight.

What’s even more impressive is that psyllium supplements can help people maintain a healthy glycemic balance — which is vital for diabetic patients.


Health Issues Associated With Psyllium Deficiency

People who don’t consume psyllium daily face an increased risk of suffering from several health issues, among which the most notables ones are the following:

  • Diarrhea
  • Diabetes
  • Constipation
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol levels

So if you want to save yourself the discomfort caused by the health problems mentioned above, then add a psyllium supplement to your diet.


Daily Recommended Intake

Based on scientific findings, the daily recommended intake of psyllium is between 5-20 grams for adults. You shouldn’t go over the DRI because that can lead to mild-to-severe digestive issues.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
