Psyllium is a soluble fiber derived from the seeds of Plantago ovata, an herb grown mainly in India. Psyllium husk is the main active ingredient in Metamucil, a fiber supplement. 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 might benefits in relieving certain symptoms like constipation. Psyllium is a mixture of polysaccharides: pentoses, hexoses, and uronic acids.
