Whole Psyllium Husks is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not like This gets thick real fast. When I read about the product they said it was a fine powder. It is not. It's very grainy. Have to gulp it down in a hurry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Cooking I have used the psyllium flakes for cooking and making various food items for gluten free cooking. I've been very pleased with how this grain works in my recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Swanson's psyllium husks are a great addition if you want to be sure and get adequate fiber. It is an excellent addition to cooked or dry cereal with fruit, to help sweep fats out of your diet. Swanson's cost is very cost effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for Your Buck This is the best non-organic powdered psyllium husk you can get for three reasons: it does not clump, it is safer than another leading brand I used to purchase, and you get more grams of fiber for your money than the others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Husks over Powder The Husks don't stick to your drinking glass as badly as the powder and doesn't gel up like the powder. This makes it easier to get down. Since it's not a powder, I take a little more than powder dosage. Even though I take more of it, it's still a better value than powder. I also prefer this over the store bought products that have added sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves on toilet paper! I have been taking a rounded Tbsp. of NOW Foods Whole Psyllium Husks each day for about 12 years. They are a natural way to keep colon moving clean and clear. Adds bulk to loose stools. Use much less toilet paper when stools come out smooth and formed. I never miss a day without psyllium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I really enjoy this whole Psyllium Husk fiber. The more finer fiber powders stick to my teeth & gums & so I stopped using them. This fiber is good quality & works great. Keeps me cleansed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fiber You need fiber, and this is a good way to get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I have used another brand for a long time, then couldn't get it and wound up buying this because I also ordered something else from Swansons. I love this psylium husk! It doesn't turn into a gel blob, is sitll easy to drink, works better. I am very pleased with this and will continue to order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works All I can tell you is that it worked from the first time I started using it. I need it in my diet everyday. Maybe everyone doesn't, but it has bulked up my bowels, and that is exactly what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal bulking fiber Whole husks don't thicken in the glass like the finely ground and are much easier to get down. I use this daily and don't think I could live without it. Swanson's prices are the best!
Date published: 2014-09-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good way to get fiber Good product to use every day. Good value too. I take a tablespoon with juice every day. Be sure to follow with a full glass of water. Keeps me regular!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I had been buying a product on line for many years that worked well, but the cost was prohibitive and finally had to stop buying it. Decided to try this after reading the positive reviews, and could not be happier. It works just as well as the product I used to use, but costs much less. It is easy to swallow and is a great fiber product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well An excellent product that does what it is supposed to do. It is coarse, not a powder; I find much easier to take.
Date published: 2014-03-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from good fiber I like the husks better than the powder as it sets up a bit slower and seems to be lighter in my gut. I mix it with my kefir or yogurt once per day for better bowel health...It is filling and I can go all day long without getting hungry after just a cup of kefir and a Tblsp of this fiber. I am a 63 year old female and weigh 130 # and am 5'6" . I could easily eat less and loose weight if I wanted to as it is really comfortably filling and makes my breakfast last for hours. I do not get hungry when I use this stuff..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is it! Several years ago I began taking supplemental fiber. I started with several commonly-known ones such as Metamucil. Those worked out ok (puns intended), but my goal was to aid in my digestive system and I came to find the sugar in these solutions unnecessary, not-to-mention their actual fiber content is fairly low. Then I came across pure psyllium. It has no sugar or other added ingredients and a similar volume amount gives 2-3 times the fiber. The first I found was the coarsest and it came from Nutrition Express. As the years passed, I continued to order from them and over time, upon two occasions, the materials became more and more fine, eventually being a powder. I was disappointed as this was their only option. However, the product still worked just fine even though my preferred coarse psyllium seemed gone forever. Recently, Nutrition Express caused a huge hassle with an order ($200) and refused to ship to an address already on-file when I updated my credit card (prior one had expired). The end of that story was that they didn't care they lost me as a customer (5 years). So I went shopping for another vendor. Enter Swanson! Not only do they have exactly what I was looking for, the coarser material in psyllium, but their price is much, much lower per ounce. Swanson also offers several options for psyllium to better meet the varietal needs of their customers. Thank you and good-bye Nutrition Express! I would highly recommend this product, but just one thing... it needs to be renamed. The words "whole husk" is not accurate. Until I received the product and opened it, I was afraid I would have to send it back. The material is coarser than powder, but it is in no way an entire (whole) husk or difficult to swallow. Perhaps "coarse psyllium husks" would be better? The material does absorb water/liquid quickly so the idea is to pour it into your beverage of choice (unless sprinkling on your food), stir a few seconds allowing it to get wet, and then drink it all down at once. It's not a big deal and an 6-8oz glass of liquid is plenty in my opinion for a heaping tablespoon of psyllium. My recommendation - take this with 1) water, and 2) Emergen-C. This makes for a nice flavor and gives you 1,000mg of Vitamin C and a few other vits along with each dose of fiber. You win two ways and C is non-toxic meaning you can't hurt taking extra even if you're taking a multi-vitamin additionally. I hope this review isn't too long (too late) and helps others know that this is a really good and healthful product. And get this... per Swanson's return policy, I took a "chance" and ordered 21lbs of this stuff on my first order. I knew that if it turned out to be something other than what would work for me, Swanson would stand behind the product and incur the cost of return. Thank you Swason for providing such a product and customer satisfaction guarantee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have used I love the whole psyllium husks. It works so much better than the powders. NOW brand is the best value. My husband and I both use this daily and mix it with milk. When it thickens slightly it kind of reminds me of cream of wheat. Very easy to drink when added to milk. I'm sure it would be great with orange juice too. Also there is NOTHING ADDED like sugar and artificial flavor. It's hard to find 100% psyllium husks at most stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good as a seinor, I don't eat large meals anymore & sometimes only 2 meals a day.. I find that when I add this stuff to my oatmeal that it helps keep my bowels regular. In short it sends y' to the bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse meds I use this on my horse. Its easy to use and quit effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from whole psyllium husks Good price for whole psyllium husks. It is the nature of the product to be mixed with little stems and seeds, but this product seems to be filtered a little better than another bulk brand--not as many chunky stems. Good basic product for adding fiber to your routine. Just add 2 tbsp to a glass of filtered water and drink. It mixes better with plain water---cool, not cold and definitely not warm water. It works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filler Great product. I use it as a filler to extend other products. Add it to apple sauce with a little honey and you can halve your cost. Add to yogurt and half the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bulk Psyllium I have been special ordering this product from my local health store, and was happy to pay $7.50-8 for it. I'm thrilled now that I found it on Swanson's site for much less, $5.62, and I love the fixed rate shipping, it really helps save money. NOW brand is a great brand, with high quality products. My only suggestion for NOW company it to have an easy open, and re-sealable bag, like many products are going to- makes it so much easier than using a rubber band. Otherwise, no complaints, excellent!
