So, what is psyllium?

Psyllium is a soluble fiber derived from the seeds of the Plantago ovata plant. It's often used as a dietary supplement to support digestive health and regulate bowel movements. Psyllium has a unique ability to absorb water, swelling up to several times its original size and forming a gel-like substance in the digestive tract. This gel helps to soften stool and ease constipation, while also promoting feelings of fullness and reducing appetite. Psyllium is also believed to have cholesterol-lowering effects and may help improve blood sugar control in people with diabetes. It can be found in many forms, including powder, capsules, and even in some breakfast cereals and snack bars.
