Psyllium Husk Powder
Economical alternative to Metamucil
I mix it 50/50 with Minute Maid lemonade powder to make it easier to drink. With just water it is pretty bland, but not horrible. You have to stir hard for about 10 seconds to get the clumps to dissolve, but they will. I can do this for about half the cost of Metamucil. I use the same cup for a few days at a time and you can actually see and feel the soluable fiber building up a slick layer on the inside of the cup. It does the same thing inside the colon, and the result is happily predictable.

Powder too fine
Did not like how finely milled this psyllium is ground. Taste is also affected. Will be returning to Swanson brand.

Can't go wrong
We all need fiber but I used it for the lemon fast.

This stuff really works
This product works very well for me. It increased regularity and size of my bowel movements. The one draw back to the product is that you have to drink it fairly quickly after you stir it into the liquid. If you wait too long before drinking it, the liquid turns into a thick consistency which is unpleasant to swallow. This draw back is minor compared to the effectiveness of the product. I will be using NOW Foods Psyllium Husk Powder
for a long time to come.

I use a tablespoon of this product at night, shaking it in a shaker cup with a little water or apple juice. I drink it down, and have another glass of water or a cup of tea. The next morning I have the best bowel movements, and my belly feels great.
I have tried other products, but this one works the best. Do yourself a favor and improve your elimination.

Now Food Psyllium Husk Powder
I add a splash of juice to my water when mixing this every morning. Doesn't taste bad and keeps my regular. Would recommend to others

This was the third brand of psyllium that I tried and my least favorite. The price is decent and it works OK but I felt that it dissolved just a bit less easily and the color was darker than the Swanson and Organic India brands I also tried. The Now psyllium is a decent product and works fine but I just preferred the others.

Best Probiotic I have found
After trying a few other probiotics, this is the best one for the money. It has worked well with my digestive system.

This is very effective in producing bulk and regualr bowel movements. The only problem is that it is a bit too clumy even at the manufacturer's statement of at least 12 oz of water.I am using it in 16oz of water and it still is not a very uniform slurry I am thinking the manufacturer should consider a filler like the brand, Konsyl-D which has dextrose to make it more uniform as a slurry mixture.

A Great Fiber Choice
This brand is very similar to the Swanson Brand.
I is very fine-grained and dissolves easily.
My only gripe about it is the purple cap, which is not a screw-on type, like Swanson's. If you drop it, or aren't very careful, it can pop off and make a nice mess for you to clean!

An Effective Product
This is a solid, effective product and a good value with the discounted Swanson's price.It works well, and does not have the unhealthy sweeteners that drug store brands do.

Keeps me regular!
This product is of good quality and for a good price. I like to take fiber everyday to keep my colon in good shape and this helps alot.
BTW this product mixes best when the liquid is not too cold.

Great product for the value
I normally purchased the Swanson version, but saw this at a cheaper price. It has a finer consistency of a powder and doesn't stick to the roof of my mouth. Easily blends.
Thank you NOW foods!
