    Comments about Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks, Colon Cleanser Powder, 12 oz:

    This product is by far superior to Metamucil, whose manufacturer abolished the original neutral-flavored version a few years ago and replaced it with the sickeningly-sweet orange-flavored version, as if to say that grown-ups and senior citizens have to be treated like infants who are afraid to take their medecines unless a sweetener is added. Moreover, the orange flavor is the only one offered.
    I am now glad that Metamucil made this decision, since I immediately abandoned their product and started using Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks. These whole husks are vastly superior to Metamucil's insubstantial and rather dusty crushed ones. With them one can also take Miralax and/or the intenstinal lubricant mineral oil for enhanced regularity.

      Comments about Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks, Colon Cleanser Powder, 12 oz:

      This is a update/follow up to my positive review Dec 2012..

      Sad to say something may have changed with this product, It is no longer effective and does not seem to mix as well as before, making it taste bad. I thought maybe it gone stale or had a bad batch, tossed one can and opened another..same issue, not effect anymore. I thought it might be me so I dug up an old can of Metamucil and instant improvement, like night and day

      Wondering if anyone else has noticed a change?

      Comments about Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks, Colon Cleanser Powder, 12 oz:

      This is a very good product, unlike major brands this does not have any additives or sweateners!!

      The taste can be slightly off, I tried both this and the powder..I recommend this over the powder as it seems to mix better and go down easier.

      The powder is prone to leaving dry clumps once in awhile..Now if you are a kid finding dry powder in your chocolate milk that is good but not this lol it can taste like licking an ash tray, I would still prefer that though over the name brands and their sweateners and additiives.

      The product works extremely well and will cut your toilet paper use 50%.

      I also like how they warn you not use this within an hour or two of taking prescription medicine..I always wonder about the binding effect on vitamins and medicine.

      In closing, great price, very effective no frills product

          Comments about Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks, Colon Cleanser Powder, 12 oz:

          If you have loose stools or diarrhea, this will actually help to bulk it up and slow down motility! It also works for constipation by easing the passage of stools. You can mix a tablespoon in your cereal with milk (or soymilk) or you can mix it with a little bit of water, milk or juice and drink it down quickly. It's tasteless, but you will have to get used to the texture. Drink it fast once you mix it with liquid because it will start to thicken very quickly.

            Don't let it set too long; it will congeal.Just add more water & follow directions. Daily use helps eliminate what isn't needed in system. Great non-chemical alternative. Good price.

            Comments about Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks, Colon Cleanser Powder, 12 oz:

            I use this powder (3 tsp) in my daily smoothie to keep up on my fiber intake. I prefer this over Metamucil (or similar) because this is a natural form of pysllium husks without the added sugars and preservatives. This does NOT taste like the flavored brands -- so you do need to mix with something other than water. My 72 year old father has also switched to this product over any other due to being diabetic and not wanting the extra sugar/additives.

            Drugstore.com is the only place that I have found this natural pysllium husk powder, so I can't compare prices. I just keep ordering it! Works great!
