What these fibers do is absorb water.If you have too much water in the stool for some people (nothing is 100%) they absorb the excess water and that firms thins up.For constipation what happens is they absorb water when the stool is still liquid and don't let go of it. This makes the stool softer and moister and easier to pass.K.------------------ kmottus###aol.com�When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall�Think of it, ALWAYS. �Mahatma GandhiMy story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html
