Frequently asked questions
What are Psyllium husks & How do they work?
Psyllium husks contain approx. 85% fibres and are difficult to digest. The many fibres of the Psyllium husks are water-soluble and absorb much water (see: How do Psyllium husks work?). The high water-solubility is one of the factors contributing to the intestinal regulating effect.
When you take SylliFlor together with liquid, the Psyllium husks swell. In fact, they swell and bind approx. 40 times their own weight in water.
The Psyllium husks and water form a jelly-like mass, which provides fullness in stomach and intestines, stimulates bowel movements, and helps in a smooth and regular passing of stools
In addition, the dietary fibres of the Psyllium husks contain some slimy mucilage forming substances with a lubricating effect. Combined, this results in soft stools that pass easily through your intestinal tract.
What is the difference between SylliFlor and other Psyllium husks?
The major differences between SylliFlor and other Psyllium husk products: SylliFlor is crisp, mixes readily with water, thickens slowly, it is tasty and not sticky in the mouth. SylliFlor is available in five variants: Vanilla, Apple & Cinnamon, Plain, Malt and Calcium.
SylliFlor products undergo a manufacturing process that includes a patented technology, which provides the Psyllium husks with a very thin coating of carbohydrates, coconut oil, and flavouring ingredients. The carbohydrates form a crispy layer around the husks, while the coconut oil delays the swelling of the husks in liquid and carries the flavouring. This special technology makes SylliFlor tasty and crispy, and it ensures that the product is NOT sticky in the mouth.
How much SylliFlor do I need to take in order to gain an effect?
It is very important that you drink plenty of liquids to prevent constipation (as a minimum one large glass for each spoonful of product consumed)
Are there any side effects of SylliFlor?
We recommend starting with a half dose and gradually increase the amount. Any discomforts usually disappear after a few days of use.
An allergic reaction may occur as a very rare side effect (fewer than 1 out of 10,000).
If you take more than the recommended dosage of SylliFlor, you may experience gastrointestinal blockage. However, usually insufficient water intake is the cause of this problem. Therefore, it is very important to drink at least one large glass of water/liquid for every spoonful consumed.
