Psyllium husks are known to maintain normal bowel transit by absorbing many times their weight as well as producing a viscous gel that ensures a smooth transit throughout the digestive tract.
Fibre is a key part of our dietary intake to ensure we maintain a healthy bowel. Not eating enough fibre can lead to digestive problems such as
constipation and other chronic digestive disorders.
