Psyllium husk powder is an excellent source of soluble fiber which not only produces short chain fatty acids, which provide an energy source for healthy colon cell function, but it also gives bulk to stools for regular bowel movements.
Flax seed powder provides a good source of lignans which provide prebiotic support, thereby enabling beneficial microflora, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria, to thrive; this reduces the exposure of the gastrointestinal tract (GI) to toxins by promoting the secretion of gastric mucosa.
