The plantain of the Indies (Plantago ovata), or ispaghul, is a species of plantain originating in India. It is the ispaghul of the French pharmacopoeia which calls psyllium another species of plantain (Plantago afra L.), with brown seed, called “de Provence”. He is often called on the Internet by anglicism “psyllium” (or “psyllium blond” to distinguish it from the true French psyllium) the English calling it “psyllium”. The ispaghul of the French pharmacopoeia designates the seed or seed coat. The term “psyllium” originally refers to three distinct species: Plantago psyllium, Plantago indica (synonymous Plantago arenaria) and Plantago ovata. His country of origin earned him his plantain name from India. It is also grown in Pakistan, but India dominates the world market. Its common name in India is Isabgol. It can also be acclimatized to temperate regions.

Psyllium (Plantago ovata) is a plant native to Europe and some parts of Africa. The husk of the psyllium seed contains glycosides and mucilages and is a good source of water soluble fibre. Water soluble fibre is not digested or absorbed by the small intestine which means that the husks provide bulk and absorb excess water in the bowels, apparently helping with constipation and diarrhoea. Psyllium husks are also thought to have other health benefits for which more research is needed, however a quick search online will provide information for anyone interested. Psyllium husks are also used in gluten free cooking as a way to bind moisture and improve texture, especially in gluten free bread mixes.
