iHerb Customer Reviews
I seem to be very allergic to the usual fiber supplements containing psyllium. I find this grapefruit pectin to be very good, I usually blend it with apple juice to improve the taste and then it is really very good and easy to drink - I use a big heaped tablespoon in 8oz of juice. It works very well as a fiber supplement but also the grapefruit seems to have an excellent effect as well. It seems to improve the condition of my tongue. It's one of the few products I use that I can really notice a direct benefit from and anti-inflammatory response after taking it.
It has a tan color and the taste is medium or acceptable. I like this because I eat grapefruit daily and I process it(white rind and fruit) in a food processor, however sometimes it is too juicy and high glycemic so I will add this fiber to thicken and lower the glycemic index. This contains pectin which of coarse is good for detox, etc. I like the container type and size.
