Psyllium is by its nature gluten-free. It is derived from a plant native to Iran and India. These psyllium husks can be taken as a fibre supplement or used in gluten-free baking.
Psyllium is a type of fiber that acts as a gentle, bulk forming laxative.
Psyllium, similarly to other soluble fibers, passes through the small intestine without being completely broken down or absorbed.
Instead, it absorbs water and becomes a viscous compound that benefits constipation, diarrhea, blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight loss.
