    Psyllium Husk Question


    Hey Guys,

    So how long after taking some psyllium husk do you think its safe to take some nutrients/supplements again? I've heard that taking nutrients/supplements with fiber (specifically psyllium husk) prevents them from being absorbed.

    How long should one wait before taking in nutrients/supplements again?

    Thanks,

    Monk

    Good question, I've been wondering the same thing. Psyllium husk is insoluble fiber though and I think soluble fiber is the one that absorbs more nutrients like why oats are good for cholesterol.

    The general rule of thumb is once you ingest psyllium husk, wait at least 2 hrs prior to taking any supplements, or else you risk poor absorption.

    it takes up to one hour for food to pass through the stomach and 3 hours the small intestine. so i believe.
