Psyllium Dietary Fiber Could Cut Health Care Costs

Psyllium Dietary Fiber

Story at-a-glance -

  • The majority of health care expenditures (75 percent) in the US are spent on preventable diseases, while only 3 percent of such expenditures are invested in disease-prevention programs
  • Daily psyllium could reduce coronary heart disease-related medical events by 11.5 percent
  • Psyllium contains both soluble and insoluble fiber for heart health, weight control, blood sugar support, healthy digestion, and more
  • The recommended daily amount of fiber is between 20 and 30 grams, but I believe about 50 grams per 1,000 calories consumed is ideal; most Americans don’t get nearly this much
  • If US adults took psyllium dietary fiber daily, it could save nearly $4.4 billion a year – and more than $35 billion in cumulative health care costs between 2013 and 2020
