What is small, soluble, slimy but has the might of Metamucil®? Psyllium fiber!! The use of this beloved seed and seed husk, predates the 80-year reign of fiber supplements such as Metamucil®. As a dietary supplement, psyllium fiber, derived from the husks of the seeds of Plantago ovata, is an herbaceous annual plant native to parts of Asia, Africa, and Northern Europe. Not only does psyllium seed provide a variety of vitamins and minerals including magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus, it is considered to be one of the most effective, naturally available sources of soluble fiber.
