Psyllium is a good soluble fiber. Most people use the husks such as Metamucil. I find that powdered psyllium seed to be more effective than the husks, or maybe I just think it is. There are studies showing psyllium seed (Plantago) encourages butyrate production in the colon.
But plantago doesn't taste as good as metamucil so it's harder to take everyday.
