Psyllium Fiber 200g from organically grown Plantago ovata | Vitals
Vitals Organic Psyllium fiber contains psyllium powder, which is a natural source of soluble fiber. Psyllium is derived from the seeds of the plant Plantago ovata, which is predominantly cultivated in India. Psyllium fibers have a positive influence on our intestines, because psyllium helps to maintain a regular and healthy bowel function.
Consumption of psyllium fiber before a meal helps to feel satiated sooner, so using psyllium can also help to have a healthy and moderate eating pattern and assist in a calorie-restricted diet.
Other advantages of psyllium are its positive influences on cholesterol levels and blood sugar level. In this way psyllium can assist in maintaining a healthy metabolism.
People who don't consume enough fiber, can use psyllium fiber to increase their intake of fiber.
Psyllium can be consumed with water, but also mixed with food. Psyllium is very suitable to replace gluten in recipes and be used as a thickening agent in bread (4 gram per 500g of flour), healthy snacks, sauces and soup.
Psyllium can also be added to a (fruit) smoothie, oat porridge and muesli.
The psyllium fibers from Vitals are derived from organically grown Plantago. The fibers are extremely pure (miniumum of 95% pure psyllium) and are harvested without using chemical pesticides, fertilizer or GMO-seeds. The product does not contain any other additives.

How to love your body?
With all these standards for beauty, it’s easy to plummet into a spiral of body-hating. Don’t succumb to the pressure! Love your body, no matter what!
Body shaming is, sadly, a trend these days. You have songs that hate on the skinny girls because “real women have curves.” Then you have songs about shaming people who don’t happen to have the body type of a Victoria’s Secret model. We all know that no one is perfect, but there are still some people who insist on telling people how they should look, how they should act, what size they should be, what their hair color should look like.
Everyone has the right to love their own body. Whether you’re skinny, fat, tall, short, missing a limb, dark-skinned, pale-skinned, what have you, every single body in the world deserves to be loved. It’s just a shame that so many people insist on hating on their bodies, simply because they don’t conform to the unrealistic standards set by society.
Why celebrating life with food is important for our health
Especially in the darkest months of the year, there seems to be an endless amount of celebrations.
No matter what is always a common theme: food is the main attraction! In fact, the focus society currently places on food has caused us to associate certain foods with holidays, past events and special times. When we sink our teeth into such foods, it can bring back memories we hold close and take us back to a time we enjoyed. Food is much more powerful than we think!
From catching up for coffee, relaxing over brunch, indulging in a long lunch or bonding at a BBQ, it’s hard to imagine getting together without the company of food. Food is something we all have in common, we all must eat, most of us find food pleasurable and trying new foods or cafes is a new experience we can share with others.
How to make a habit out of good intentions
Sometimes you stumble on articles, that are too good to pass up on. For those who have started the year with good intentions, we are sharing an article on how to make a habit out of good intentions. It's written by a guy who changed his habits after he became a father and wanted to be a good parent by setting an example.
“Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.”
You probably agree with that statement.
But, for you (and everyone else) the problem is that good habits are hard to form and bad habits are easy to keep.
It is certainly true for me. Like most of us, I meant to start exercising for about six years after I started my career.
But it never happened. I’d do it for two or three weeks here and there, but nothing that ever stuck.
Then, all of a sudden, it did.
And it did because something changed for me. I had a son that was old enough to mimic me and that I wanted to be able to keep up with for the next twenty years. That scared me straight essentially.
In a number of areas in my life, including fitness, I realized he was going to base a significant portion of his view of how to live life and what habits were important off of what he watched me do.
So I stopped acting like I was going start exercising and I actually did it.
To create my new habit, I used a combination of the techniques below. You can use them to firm up your new habit and get your good habit quotient up.
Be kind to your bowels!Probiotics or beneficial bacteria are important for good digestive health. In order to keep these same bacteria happy and thriving, they need to be fed PRE-biotics, in other words, fiber!
