Psyllium /ˈsɪliəm/, or ispaghula (isabgol) /ˌɪspəˈɡuːlə/, is the common name used for several members of the plant genus Plantago whose seeds are used commercially for the production of mucilage. Psyllium is mainly used as a dietary fiber to relieve symptoms of both constipation and mild diarrhea, and occasionally as a food thickener. It is commonly used as a food ingredient in manufactured breakfast cereals.

Use of psyllium in the diet for three weeks or longer often lowers blood cholesterol levels in people with elevated cholesterol, and can lower blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Use of psyllium for a month or longer may produce a small reduction in systolic blood pressure.

The plants from which the seeds are extracted tolerate dry and cool climates and are mainly cultivated in northern India.

Flohsamenschalen sind die Samenschalen der Wegericharten Plantago indica, Plantago afra (Syn.: Plantago psyllium), daher auch der Name Psyllium (lateinisch psyllium Floh). Die Frucht reift zu einer zweifächrigen Deckelkapsel heran mit je zwei kleinen elliptischen, rotbraunen, glänzenden Samen. Diese erinnern an Flöhe, was der Pflanze den deutschen Namen „Flohkraut“ oder „Flohsamen-Wegerich“ eintrug. Sie werden auch unter dem Namen Indische Flohsamenschalen (Plantago ovata) als Lebens- und Heilmittel vertrieben und zu diesem Zweck hauptsächlich in Indien und Pakistan angebaut.
