Psyllium fiber not only helps lower cholesterol but is a natural source of soluble fiber where as the psyllium forms a gel, & will then act like a sponge to absorb toxins in the digestive tract. Yes, it can help many GI problems as it is good for both constipation & diarrhea.
Another good cereal to try is Kashi 7 whole grain puffs (organic section $2.89 per box and eat with skim milk and berries to sweeten. It has no sodium, no sugar and 1 gram of fiber...I find it easy on the tummy.
These are both high fiber cereals with added fiber. I am not sure "what" GI issues you are referring too. The type problem would determine if this is an appropriate cereal or not.
IBS, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, constipation---all have different needs.
