I got this for my husband, who ordinarily doesn't get much fiber in his diet and can suffer from irregularity as a result. This keeps his bowels moving! He'll put the psyllium husk on rice, pasta dishes, etc., and drink plenty of ice tea with it. He doesn't notice a flavor from the husk, but it does make sauces thicker. He carries some in a largish pill box that he can fit in his pocket, so that he can use it in restaurants.

I have used this product for a year and loved it, something wrong with this batch, it has a foul taste and doesn't work very well. Normally I could take 1 level tablespoon and it was effective, now I take several and little effect. Have gone back to Traders or Metamucil.

          Maybe I got a bad batch, but the contents smelled like heavy smoke. I contacting the distributer to see if there was a recall and gave them the lot and serial numbers. But they have never replied.

          I would not recommend until such time when they indicate the product is safe again.

              my husband and I used metamucil for a while, but finally we came accross many articles and notes in different books that list of chemicals - maltodextrin, coloring, etc is not really good.
              We tried pure psyllium husk and we feel better. Works much better than metamucil and you don't have to worry about bad after taste.

                  As effective as metamucil, costs much less.

                  I mix 1T of this with crystal lite or sports drink, let it sit for a bit to absorb some liquid, and drink.

                    Helps with regularity and to cleanse your colon naturally. Make sure you drink plenty of water or you might actually get constipated.

                          Excellent price & quality. This is great for shakes in the morning & for post work out. There is no taste. The fiber definitely works and a little goes a long way.
