A Student Drank 2 Liters Fiber Supplement For Dinner. This Is What Happened To His Intestines.

This may or may not have been from personal experience. Please don't make your psyllium husk fiber into jelly. Very painful 😞

Psyllium husk fiber supplement can be part of a healthy diet, but it must be taken correctly. It has been shown to lower cholesterol levels to an extent, but is best in combination with a proper diet. Always take care to mix psyllium husk with more than enough water. It can become thick and cause problems if it isn't.
