Psyllium Husk is high in fiber. Fiber is made up of undigestible carbohydrates mainly from botanical natural sources. The fiber maneuvers through the intestines without being broken down or absorbed, allowing it to carry metabolic wastes excreted in the bile out of the body. The fiber expands in the fluid in your stomach to form a gel, slowing digestion and helping move food through your digestive tract. These properties can generally increase the health of your gastrointestinal system.
