How It Works:
Psyllium Seeds is a bulk laxative supplement. Psyllium is a mucilaginous herb, whose tiny flea-shaped seeds (greek psylla means flea) can swell up to 14 times their original size when soaked in water. Psyllium seeds are derived from the native East Indian plantain. Psyllium seeds contain 10-30 percent mucilage. This mucilage lubricates and cleanses the areas through which it passes acting like a colon "broom," cleansing the intestines as it comes in contact with the waslls of the intestines.
