HUSKY*

A Natural Bowel Facilitator

D E S C R I P T I O N / M O D E O F A C T I O N 

The active ingredient in Husky is Psyllium husk (Ispaghulla husk), a natural dietary fiber derived from Plantago ovata seeds. Psyllium husk is neither digested nor absorbed in the small intestine. The bulk forming effect is due to both the water binding capacity of undigested fiber and the increased bacterial mass following partial digestion in the colon. These actions result in distension of the colon and soften stools, thereby decreasing intraluminal pressure, straining and speeding colonic transit in constipated patients. Psyllium binds to bile acids, reducing their intestinal reabsorption and promoting their excretion. The consequent enhancement of hepatic synthesis of bile acids from cholesterol may reduce plasma cholesterol in low-density lipoproteins. With several months of use, bulk forming agents reduce intraluminal rectosigmoid pressure and relieve symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome and diverticular disease of the colon. The capacity of these agents to absorb water makes them useful in relieving the symptoms of mild diarrhoea and for the regulation of effluent in patients with ileostomy or colostomy.

Bulk forming laxatives have very few side effects and minimal systemic effect. Allergic reactions may occur but very rarely. Flatulence and Borborygmi occur occasionally. Psyllium husk may contain significant qualities of Na + and should not be used when systemic retention of Na + and H2O is a problem. Psyllium may bind to Coumarin derivatives. Individuals with stenosis, ulceration or adhesions should avoid these agents. Oesophageal and intestinal obstruction can occur when these substances are taken without adequate fluid intake. Patients may avoid these problems by drinking a glass of water concurrently.
