Dietary fiber-seed flea psyllium (psyllium), as has been demonstrated, prevent the development of metabolic syndrome, writes "RBC" referring to the publication in the journal Obesity.

Known that metabolic syndrome is a set of disorders involving failures in insulin sensitivity in the carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, obesity, hypertension.

Sibley and Paul Simon Radavelli-Bagatini of Curtin University of Technology, turned to work for the years 1980-2012, dedicated to psyllium fiber, in order to find out how they are reflected in the metabolic syndrome.

It was found that the fibers have a positive influence on the performance of blood sugar, insulin response, blood pressure and lipids in animals and humans. Typically, fiber intake gave decreased appetite.

Scientists believe that dietary supplements with the fibers are perfect for those who are at risk (diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, hyperglycemia), but has not faced a serious syndrome, or who want to ask weight, reduce blood pressure.
