So Banatrol Plus is available OTC, I see. It looks like it's mainly banana flakes and trans galactooligosaccharide, which is also a soluble fiber (highly processed) and what they call a prebiotic and some sugars (lactose, glucose, galactose). Might be interesting to try out, as they say that the amount of lactose is inconsequential, they say. Maybe I'll purchase a small amount. The psyllium doesn't always work as well as I wish, but I haven't had the opportunity to really experiment with when and how to take it to maximize its benefits. I have been distracted and stressed. Watching the overt descent of my country into fascism for the last 6 years has taken a toll on my health, which mainly expresses itself in the gut.
