Psyllium is a relatively unknown form of fiber that serves as a staple dietary item in certain parts of the world, but is only now gaining popularity in the west. The incredible concentration of fiber found in psyllium helps it push food through the digestive tract by absorbing water and bulking up the stool. This leads to less strain when going to the bathroom, a reduction of inflammation in the gut, and a general improvement in your nutrient intake efficiency. Psyllium husk and fiber can be found in most import stores and health food distributors.
