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.
