Werner Ratje discovered the beneficial effects of Psyllium husks by accident. He met an Indian business man who was dissolving a powder of the husks in a glass of water. The powder made it easier for his stomach to cope with his visit in Denmark, he explained. Werner Ratje became curios, and he and his wife looked in literature for more information.
The Ratje family decided to help more people to a better digestion. When the stomach is out of order and digestion is acting up, the general well-being suffer. Constipation, diarrhoea, IBS and elevated cholesterol levels are some of the problems HUSK® Psyllium-husk can help relieve. A well-functioning stomach means a more well-balanced body and greater well-being
The Ratje family kept themselves updated on the international research into the effect of the husks and knew the many beneficial effects of Psyllium husks . In 1996 the Danish Medicines Agency approved HUSK® Psyllium-husk as an effective herbal medicine for use in case of constipation, diarrhoea, IBS and elevated cholesterol levels.
Today doctors, specialists and dieticians recommend HUSK® Psyllium-husk, and the product also helps patients in the Danish hospitals.
The HUSK products are sold in many countries, and consumers in all of the Nordic countries and large parts of Europe benefit from the fibre rich Psyllium husks.
