Psyllium is a product used to prevent sand buildup. As psyllium moves through the digestive tract, sand attaches to it. When your horse passes the psyllium husks, it passes the sand with it.

While its powerful water absorption and gelling capacities make it an excellent tonic for the digestive system, these properties prove more challenging when using the extract in cooking. Thanks to its healthy fibre content it’s often found in cereals and sometimes baked goods. It has also been used for its thickening qualities in ice creams and frozen desserts.

Psyllium is a form of fibre and is most commonly used for its gentle laxative effect. It absorbs water to become a viscous compound that doesn’t break down or get fully absorbed and can then pass easily through the digestive system. While other sources of fibre can be harder to tolerate long-term, psyllium is very well tolerated and gentle enough to be used regularly. It contains both soluble and insoluble fibre, both of which have benefits to health. The soluble dissolves in water and helps soothe the digestive tract, while the insoluble fibre is an excellent digestive cleanser and will eliminate impurities.
