I've heard some of the regulars use the expression "use fibre to bulk" up your stools quite a lot in the posts. I was wondering what exactly "to bulk" up means. Does it mean to remove and absorb excess water, give a more solid texture and shape to your stools? Does it mean that small pebble-like stools are combined together to give a larger and better quality stool.
Does fibre help to bind mucus? If you use a fibre supplement does it speed up or slow down delivery of stool to the rectum.
Sorry if this is a basic question, I've just never completed understood the term.
Thanks in advance
