Psyllium benefits

Psyllium is used clinically as a  stomach bulk forming agent, This bulk is retained in stomach then in the colon despite micro-flora as psyllium is poorly fermented (highly fermented fibers may be metabolized by bacteria in the colon, and water retaining properties with the fiber would be lost in this scenario).

Psyllium is proven to increase fecal size and moisture, and the most common characteristics of stool following supplementation of psyllium are ‘soft, sleek, and easily passable.’ Relative to other sources of dietary fiber, psyllium appears to be more effective at forming feces and appears to be one of the few fiber sources not associated with excessive flatulence.

Selenium acts as a laxative that helps treat constipation.
