Psyllium is made from the husk of seeds of the shrub-like herb called plantago ovata. Psyllium is a high-fiber dietary additive commonly fed to horses to help expel sand from the digestive system which may aid in the prevention of colic, impaction, diarrhea and other problems associated with a build-up of sand in the colon. Second, it falls in the category of "prebiotic," meaning it serves as a source of food for the beneficial bacteria that live in the colon.
Probiotics are live microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) that help promote healthy digestive function and support a healthy immune system. Often referred to as ‘good bugs’ they help break down ingredients/contents that the body normally can't, and help inhibit ‘bad bugs’ from growing.
