A professional supplement providing psyllium.
Psyllium is used in herbal medicine as a bulk-forming laxative and to promote bowel movements by increasing bulk volume and water content. Psyllium provides gentle relief of constipation and/or irregularity.
Psyllium is a form of soluble fiber sourced from the husks of the psyllium (Plantago ovata) seed. This plant grows most predominantly in India as it is native to Asia, but it can be found worldwide, including growing wildly in the southwest U.S. Psyllium is sold under a wide variety of names but is probably best known as Metamucil®.
Some people may need a fiber supplement, such as psyllium, to increase their intake. Fiber is said to help with a wide range of health issues, including:
There are two types of fiber: Soluble fiber attracts water and turns to gel during digestion to help slow the process. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to the stool and seems to help food pass more quickly through the stomach and intestines.
Increasing your intake of soluble fiber may promote bowel regularity. As psyllium makes its way down your digestive tract, it absorbs water in the intestines, swells, and contributes to a gel-like stool that's softer and easier to pass.
