Psyllium husks (Ispagol) are a rich source of hemicellulose, composed primarily of xylan as the backbone, which is linked to subgroups such as arabinoxylans, arabinose, and rhamnose. The husk of the seed consists of 65% insoluble and 35% soluble polysaccharides. Slimy biopolymers and gums extracted from psyllium husks are used in pharmaceutical preparations as thickeners, gelling agents, and stabilizers.
