A condensed source of insoluble fibre, it speeds up the body’s food processing time, quickening the movement of stool through your colon. That saying, the insoluble fibre present in wheat improves your bowel movements and relieves or prevents constipation.
Wheat bran is also acts a prebiotic. When it reaches the colon, it gets fermented by the gut’s microflora and becomes a source of nutrient for the gut.
Psyllium, on the other hand, is a soluble fibre that passes through our digestive system without being broken down. It absorbs water along the way, aiding in constipation and regulates blood sugar, cholesterol and weight loss.
