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

Relative abundance of microbial communities at the phylum and genus levels in both groups. (A) The average relative abundance of gut microbiota at the phylum level is shown by bar plot in each group. (B) Box plot showing relative abundances of microbial communities at the genus level in both groups. The cluster heatmap shows the differences in gut microbiota at the genus level between the groups (C) and among all samples (D).
