- Intestinal Health

- Helps Maintain Regularity
- Pleasant Tasting
- GMP Quality Assured
- A Dietary Supplement
Surveys have shown that the fiber content of the American diet is typically about half of government recommended levels. Apple-Flavored Psyllium Husk Powder can be a convenient and tasty way to increase the intake of dietary fiber. It has the ability to swell up to 50 times its initial volume when added to liquid. This bulking action can play an important role in maintaining regularity and gastrointestinal health.
As a dietary supplement, mix vigorously 1 tablespoon into 8-12 oz. of juice or water, 1 to 3 times daily as needed. Drink additional fluids throughout the day. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Gr8-Dophilus, Triphala and Detox Support.
Psyllium husk powder (plantago asiatica), apple fiber, fructose and natural apple flavor.
Contains no salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.
Caution: Take this product as recommended. Without drinking enough liquid the product may swell in the throat, causing blockage or choking. Avoid use if you ever had esophageal narrowing or swallowing difficulties.

It's a little gritty and the flavor takes a bit of getting used to. However, THIS STUFF WORKS!! I used this product morning and night during a 3 week detox. Terrific product. I will say this, if you take it at bedtime (as I did), the psyllium will absorb the water in your system and flush the excess. I would go to bed at 11pm and awake at 2:30am to use the restroom. If you take it at night, take it 3-4 hours before bedtime.
While I am a big fan of Now Foods in general, I can't recommend their Apple Flavored Psyllium. It tastes like cardboard and refuses to dissolve. I am reluctant to admit it but Metamucil remains my favorite laxative. I keep looking for alternatives but Metamucil tastes good, does the job and is dirt cheap. Competitors have their work cut out for them.
It is works

Tastes gross, but most psyllium fiber does. I'm sure there is mainstream products with better taste, but you can't beat the price for plain psyllium husks with apple pectin.
