Psyllium is a small herbaceous annual plant native to Southern Asia and Europe. It is a convenient way to increase your intake of dietary fiber. Surveys have shown that the fiber content of the American diet is typically about half of the government recommended levels. Psyllium is a bulking agent with a high mucilage content which swells considerably when added to liquid. This bulking action can play an important role in maintaining healthy gastrointestinal functions.
As a dietary supplement, mix 1-2 level tablespoons into at least 12 oz. of water or juice and consume immediately. Be sure to drink plenty of additional fluids throughout the day. Start with smaller amounts and gradually increase over several weeks.
Do not eat freshness packet. Keep in bottle.
Take this product as recommended. Without drinking enough liquid the product may swell in the throat, causing blockage or choking. Avoid use if you have ever had esophageal narrowing or swallowing difficulties.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Better than any fiber I've ever had. Things just are not the same without it. This item is a must have. I suggest beginning like this: week 1 use 1 tblsp & 12oz water. Week 2 use 2 tblsp & 12oz water. Week 3 use 3 tblsp & 12oz of water. I stay with that after the 3rd week.
I have tried several, this is the best, no additives, no harsh taste, I add cinammon and it is easy to swallow.
