What is Psyllium?
Psyllium is a bulk-forming fibre. It works primarily through mechanical effect by absorbing water, bulking the colonic contents and decreasing transit time.
Besides Plantago Ovata, psyllium is also known as ispaghula and isapgol. Plantago Ovata is an annual herb native to Asia, the Mediterranean region, and North Africa. It has been used in traditional medicine in the United States, Europe, India, and China.
