The effects of psyllium husk on gut microbiota composition and function in chronically constipated women of reproductive age using 16S rRNA gene sequencing analysis

Changes in intestinal microbe diversity during psyllium husk intervention. α-diversity is indicated by the Shannon (A), Chao (B), and ACE diversity (C) indices, and β-diversity is indicated by unweighted (D) and weighted (E) UniFrac between the two groups.
