Now Foods Psyllium Husk Powder, 24-Ounce


A Dietary Supplement Psyllium is a true dietary fiber, even though it is classified by some as a laxative or mucilaginous fiber, and is a convenient way to increase intake of dietary fiber because of its high mucilage content. This bulking agent swells considerably when added to liquid, which can help to support healthy gastrointestinal transit time. This bulking action and healthy transit time can play an important role in maintaining healthy gastrointestinal function.*

    If you don’t poop enough, and would like to poop more, this is for you. Personally, I mix it with chocolate whey powder and milk – 1/4 cup of this, 1/4 cup of whey, and a cup of 2% milk, and the next morning, I poop a single, two-foot long log of supreme quality. There’s not much more to say.

    Getting fiber in my day to day diet is not one of my strong suits, so I’ve been shopping around for a supplement to help out.

    This product is exactly what it describes itself to be. Scoop some into water, slug it down and, well, it goes to work.

    You definitely have to balance the amount you use with how much you can dissolve in the amount of water you want to drink. I don’t like to let it bulk up which happens if you let it sit for too long. So I’ve been using a level spoonful, mixing it quickly in 16oz of water, then slamming it as quick as I can. I’ve been finding that I’m using less and less fiber, but haven’t seen any decrease in its “effectiveness”.

    My only disappointment would be that this doesn’t dissolve very well in water, but I think that’s a characteristic of all psyllium husk powder.

    I was first introduced to psyllium husk over four years ago by a coworker extolling the benefits of it. After researching the subject, I began by adding a tablespoon to my morning “super-antioxidant-fruit-smoothie”–or if traveling just mixing with a glass of juice. I have rarely missed a day since and baring a worldwide shortage will continue to make it part of my daily diet.

    Not wanting to include a graphical description, I will suffice to say it took the mystery out of my daily bowel movement and turned it into an innocuous and brief experience. I cannot recall the last time I suffered any kind of stomach or
    intestinal discomfort and believe psyllium husk has played a starring role in that. About a year ago I convinced a very close friend to give it a try and now he too has become a daily user.

    If you decide to try it, do purchase the powder (any brand will do) as I have tried coarser grinds on occasion and they did not seem to work quiet as well.
