When I have a bowel movement my stool is made up of a substance that resembles tough rubberized jelly. It is sometimes difficult to pass this. It seems as though once it gets into my stomach it becomes a jelly like substance and my stomach does not digest this.
Metamucil (psyllium) Psyllium is a bulk-forming fiber laxative. It works by absorbing liquid in the intestines and swelling to create a softer, bulky stool that is easier to pass.
So yes it can cause you to have a jelly like stool.
Psyllium is used to treat occasional constipation or bowel irregularity. Psyllium may also be used to treat diarrhea and may help lower cholesterol when used together with a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat.
