Black Psyllium - Psilli nigrum Semen

Complementary feed for horses


Black Psyllium - Psilli nigrum Semen - Plantago afra. These seeds expand when they come in contact with water and will produce mucilage. Our Black Psyllium is organic and high in quality, the product is free from insecticides, pesticides and heavy metals. Black Psyllium can be used to remove sand out of the gastrointestinal tract of horses.


Black psyllium forms a gelatinous mass when it comes into contact with water, in the intestines it binds accumulated sand to the intestinal contents and leaves the body when the horse defecates.


Black Psyllium - Psilli nigrum Semen is extremely suitable for administration via a nasogastric tube. After the seeds come into contact with water, it takes a while before the Psyllium seeds are transformed into a gelatinous mass. This delayed transformation reduces the risk of nasogastric tube obstruction during administration.
