Psyllium husk

Psyllium husk essentially consists of a group of water-soluble fibers obtained from the plant Plantago ovata or Plantago psyllium , often found on the market under the commercial name of Metamucil . This fiber forms a type of gel in the gastrointestinal tract that does not undergo an extensive fermentation process, contrary to other dietary fibers.

Because of its unique properties, this supplement works in a fashion that is distinct from other laxative drugs, as it is considerably milder and less aggressive to the body.
