Hydrocil works differently than other fiber supplements. It forms bulk. It is to the digestive tract what a flywheel is to an engine, it keeps your insides running smoothly, rather than bouncing back and forth between loose stools and constipation. It is rather like swallowing sawdust stirred up in water, but I don't take it for the taste.

My family has been using this brand for many years. I called Numark Labs to ask why the new batch I got was so bad, and they told me that recently, the manufacturing company changed. Well, the new "version" is awful, in my opinion. It has a slightly bitter taste, it is very fine so it mixes well but "jells" really fast, and very inconvenient clumps form that are hard to break up. This product has always been absolutely wonderful, easy and pleasant to use. What a disappointment, now we're using Yerba Prima whole husks--doesn't clump or jell too fast, and not bitter.

    Comments about Hydrocil Instant Dietary Fiber Supplement, 10.6 oz:

    I have ordered this for several years from Drugstore>com and have had fast efficient service. However the last two orders of 3 containers each have hot had the safety seal so we would not risk taking them. Drugstore.com was excellent and accepting them back and issuing a refund but we are reluctant to order more until we know the safety seal issue is resolved.

      Comments about Hydrocil Instant Dietary Fiber Supplement, 10.6 oz:

      I was almost afraid to use it for the can was only half full and the usual top seal was missing. We opened two of the other cans to see if it was a mistake. It has a funny taste and is so thick that it is like trying to drink a heavy milkshake. It is not a change for the better! Sadly, we have five more cans of it and I would return them if it was not such a hassle.

          This is soluable fiber taken from the blonde psylium seed. You can mix it with almost anything.
          The fiber in this product is proven to lower LDL

            I like the fact that this is a natural fiber as opposed to the chemicals used in products like Miralax. (Check the ingredients.)
            Hydrocil just feels safer to me for fighting the intestinal effects of opiod pain-killers that I need to use.

              I have used this for many years and the results I get are far better than Medimucil or any other fiber product. It disolves easily and quickly. The only downside is that you need to drink it very quickly or it turns to a thick sludge.
