Psyllium is a natural plant fiber imported from India.
Surveys have shown that the fiber content of the American diet is typically about half of government recommended levels. Psyllium Husks can be a convenient 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, take 2 capsules with an 8 oz glass of liquid, twice a day. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Gr8-Dophilus, Triphala and Detox Support.
Gelatin (capsule), magnesium stearate (vegetable source), stearic acid (vegetable source) and silica.
Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.
Store in a cool, dry place.
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.

These caps are great for adding fiber to your daily intake. However, this is one supplement to be careful not to take too much of as I have learned the hard way. Take as directed is the perfect dose, 2 in the morning and 2 at night. Thinking that fibers are good for you and taking too much can result in the temporary blockage of your colon and hence lodging the food you eat afterwards in your stomach and result in a terrible nausea becasue food cannot be passed down.
I like the fact that apple pectin is included in this psyllium husk cap. Specifically, because it binds with aluminum.

Fácil de tomar y tienes los efectos beneficiosos de la fibra. Tomo dos en la comida y uno en la cena. No lo he empezado a tomar porque tenga ningún problema digestivo, así que no se si ayuda a la gente que tenga alguna patología. Como complemento para alguien sano como yo me parece hasta imprescindible, porque ganas regularidad, o dicho de forma más basta, "cagas más duro y menos veces".
