Psyllium Husk Fiber - 12 oz. PRODUCT #: 5922 UPC:
733739059222 Psyllium is a true dietary fiber, even though
it is classified by some as a laxative or mucilaginous fiber,
and is a convenient way to increase intake of dietary fiber
because of its high mucilage content. This bulking agent swells
considerably when added to liquid, which can help to increase
gastrointestinal transit time. This bulking action and
increased transit time can play an important role in maintaining
healthy gastrointestinal function.* Psyllium Husk Fiber Fact
