Yes. Psyllium husk powder is safe for adults and children, we actually have a category of our flavored fiber for kids. However, we suggest that children take a smaller amount of psyllium husk powder per dosage. Children should have half the serving as an adult.
Yes, but ONLY our 'Pure' psyllium husk powder product, as it does not contain any sweeteners that pets simply can't metabolize. Just as you would not feed chocolate to your dog, which is perfectly safe for humans to eat, we wouldn't give them our flavored psyllium products because it is intended for human consumption.
Psyllium husk powder can be used as an egg replacement for all your gluten-free, vegan foods and baked goods. Because it is unsweetened and unflavored, our ‘Pure’ variety of Naturlax® Psyllium Powder can be added to your favorite cake, bread, and pancake recipes, too. Since psyllium binds with moisture, it’s essentially able to bind with the wet ingredients in a recipe (like water, milk, or eggs) and create a bond that is similar to that of gluten. Since psyllium is a clear, colorless, gelling agent, their binding properties go generally unnoticed when mixed with other ingredients. Naturlax® can also be incorporated into many homemade ice cream and frozen dessert recipes to create a natural thickener. Adding psyllium into your recipes is an easy way to increase your daily fiber intake.
Incorporating Naturlax Psyllium into anyone’s diet promotes a positive change. Not only is Naturlax ideal for the 50+ population, but those younger can most definitely benefit from it as well. Seniors, baby-boomers, Generation X, Generation Y, and anything that follows can reap the benefits of a diet with additional healthy fiber.
