Re: what if psyllium doesnt work why

Psyllium is a bulk producing fiber-- it absorbs fluid to bulk up you stool.
You all need insoluble fiber that causes your intestines to contract and move digested food through your intestines and out.

Psyllium does not work without a combination of of both types of fiber and an adequate amount of water.
